"Rise" as written by and Max Martin Katy Perry....
I won't just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can't write my story
I'm beyond the archetype
I won't just conform
No matter how you shake my core
'Cause my roots, they run deep, oh

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, you're out of time
But still, I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in, think again
Don't be surprised, I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed

'Cause when, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, you're out of time
But still, I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in, think again
Don't be surprised, I will still rise

Don't doubt it, don't doubt
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it
Still rise
Just fight it, just fight it
Don't be surprised, I will still rise

    Song MeaningNo matter how far life brings you down, you can always get back up. "Just fight it, just fight it"
    Every difficulty faced in life is a lesson to be learned. If you fight to get back up you will "be transformed" into a stronger being.
    Even when others say you're "out of time," you can still rise.
    "This is no mistake, no accident" meaning you can't wait for life to just fix itself and suddenly, by "accident", you're high in life.

    Katy Perry is saying that's how she grew to be who she is. She was doubted, but she didn't want to give up. She wanted to thrive, and so she did with that mentality. She didn't let anyone's negativity get into her head. So, she is saying that you can do the same. If she can do it, we can too. It's all about our mentality. Tell yourself you can do it. "Fight" "Rise" "Transform"
