A song by rise against whats it say to you? I've listened to this song over and over again to get a meaning from it i was trying to figure out why rise against would sing a song about the war when there about well "rise against" the goverment. So after listening to the song many, many times MY interpation has come to belive that its a song about how being a solider in the end isn't worth it you lose so much with very few to gain he sings about how do you see the world well i see the world as a well messed up but i see families and just the average day. How does a marine see the world? disaster hardship late nights and the thought of death of humans. In the middle of the song he mainly tells about how the marine will be a hero when he gets back with medals and his flag and how everything will be ok, but towards the end he explains it all, why they wrote this song and he says "the flag will gather dust" which is a statement towards how long will this fame last?, not long and what was to gain out of it long nights of the girl you lost the memories of torture and freinds you lost which finally made sense towards the song and why they wrote it but this is my understanding towards this song. Whats yours? These are my oppions on this song. The reason why im asking this is because i was watching some youtube videos and they were playing this song on some marines and showing honorship but i just felt as they took it the wrong way. Rember listen to the song closely and atleast twice before making remarks.
