Lyrics to the "Rise" by the band Skillet:

All I see is
Shattered pieces
I can't keep it hidden like a secret
I can't look away!
From all this pain in a world we made!

Everyday you need
A bulletproof vest
To save yourself from what you could never guess!
Am I safe today?
When I step outside in the wars we wage!

Our future's here and now,
Here comes the countdown!

Sound it off, this is the call!
Rise and revolution!
It's our time to change it all,
Rise and revolution!
Unite and fight, to make a better life!
Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call, tonight, we rise!

Rise.
Tonight, we rise
Rise.
Tonight, we rise!

Like a hand grenade,
Thrown in a hurricane,
Spinning in chaos,
Trying to escape the flame,
Yesterday is gone!
Faster than the blast of a car bomb!

And when the scars heal,
The pain passes,
As hope burns, we rise from the ashes!
Darkness fades away!
And a light shines on a brave new day!

Our future's here and now,
Here comes the countdown!

Sound it off, this is the call!
Rise and revolution!
It's our time to change it all,
Rise and revolution!
Unite and fight, to make a better life!
Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call, tonight, we rise!

Rise.
Tonight, we rise
Rise.
Tonight, we rise!

In a world gone mad,
In a place so sad!
Sometimes it's crazy
To fight for what you believe!
But you can't give up,
If you wanna keep what you love!
(Keep what you love)
(Keep what you love)
(Keep what you love)
(Keep what you love)
Never give up, no!

Rise.
Rise and revolution
Rise.
Rise and revolution

Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call!

Rise
Like we're alive
Tonight, we rise
Make a better life
Tonight, we rise!

Rise, rise, rise and revolution
Rise, rise, rise and revolution
Rise.

Operator: 911?
Woman: There's a guy here with a gun!
Operator: Ma'am? Ma'am?
Woman: Kids, get under the table! Kids get under the table!

*News reporter*: We are getting reports from all around the globe, showing
The highest unemployment rates since the end of World War II. Many are
Losing their jobs, their homes, and in many cases, their hope.

*Upset parent*: You are such a failure! What is wrong with you? You can't
Do anything right! I wish you had never been born!

Here is another one. It's called "Blood for Blood" by the band Hellyeah. I'd like to dedicate it to Obama's lap dog and known child killer "Netenyahoo" of Israel:

"Sangre Por Sangre (Blood For Blood)"

Sangre por sangre, blood for blood [x4]

Betraying a trust is a must in your mind
The agenda's just business as usual
Remember the imbecile the fire's they light
Cities smolder with the innocent victims
Democracy is hypocrisy, dictatorship is what we need
Because really what's the fucking difference?
So come on in and take a seat, and listen to the lies they love to preach
Because the truth would just be fucking senseless

Eye for an eye and blood for blood you better get your gun (blood for blood!)
For every action reaction, and death is business
Eye for an eye and blood for blood you better grab your gun (blood for blood!)
Can't take it back, what's done is done I want blood for blood

Ashes to ashes and dust to the death of what we were to what we've become
I'll put my faith into our heroes that fight for our lives, until the war is won
Dishonesty is given to me, anxiety is my disease
But, the privileged they've got it made.
So raise a glass to the one percent that have it all
Keep me in the shit and send me in the screaming fits of fucking rage!

Eye for an eye and blood for blood you better get your gun (blood for blood!)
For every action reaction, and death is business
Eye for an eye and blood for blood you better grab your gun (blood for blood!)
Can't take it back, what's done is done I want blood for blood

Quarter oppressors, it's too late for surrender
Time to pay your penance all together, forever
This spinning web of deception, lies begin to constrict
The walls of fate have a gate that's sealed around you
Brick by brick

Eye for an eye and blood for blood you better get your gun (blood for blood!)
For every action reaction, and death is business
Eye for an eye and blood for blood you better grab your gun (blood for blood!)
Can't take it back, what's done is done I want blood for blood

Sangre por sangre!
Blood for blood!
Sangre por sangre!
Blood for blood!

How Did the America Media Miss the "Pro-Life" Movement Isn't about Saving Life - But - Is About Women Under the Thumbs of Men?

Thom plus logo Anti-abortion groups want you to believe they're all about saving "unborn" human lives, but a new poll shows that, for the majority of abortion rights opponents, that's a lie. The "pro-life" movement, it turns out, is fundamentally about keeping women down - a sentiment that's even shared by a majority of women who support forced pregnancies.
