Living Like Renegades

Books aren’t the only place where writers inspire. Music has done the same for many ages in its own unique way. Some songs are quickly forgotten, others should not be:

“Rise” by Skillet on revolution:

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!

…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…

“Uprising” by Muse on truth and control:

…They’ll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
But we will never see the truth around
Another promise, another scene, another
Package lie to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

“Wake Me Up” by Avicii on finding your place:

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start…

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn’t know I was lost…

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans
Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes

“On My Own” by Ashes Remain on not going at it alone:

There’s gotta be another way out
I’ve been stuck in a cage with my doubt
I’ve tried forever getting out
On my own

But every time I do this my way
I get caught in the lies of the enemy
I lay my troubles down
I’m ready for you now

Come and find me in the dark now
Everyday by myself I’m breaking down
I don’t wanna fight alone anymore!

“Renegades” by X Ambassadors on living life with meaning:

Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close the end is near…

All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws…

It’s our time to make a move
It’s our time to make amends
It’s our time to break the rules
Let’s begin…

Living like we’re renegades
