Arise Lyrics

Tell the swine
We will make it out alive
Theres a note in the pages of a book
So sleep tonight
Well sleep dreamlessly this time
When we awake well know that everythings alright

Sing to me about the end of the world
End of these hammers...

    I think the cake has the glue on the chicken pizza sauce. This is incredibly accurate considering the paint of hallow donuts. So in all this is a perfect piece of wood. Thank you,

    Yourm. Om

    I think it is using Biblical imagery of the final resurrection when Christ returns and there will be a new heavens and a new earth where pain and death will no longer reign. Revelation 21-22 describes Gods healing of the creation and there will be no more tears or death. So “Arise” can literally refer to the resurrection into new life in Gods kingdom where we will be more than we ever dreamed.

    Sing to me about the end of the world
    (meaning: there is no such thing as the end of the world)
    End of these hammers and needles for you
    (meaning: you can always start over, "hammers and needles" mean repairing, mending and redoing things)
    Hold on to the world we all remember fighting for
    There's still strength left in us yet
    (meaning: don't give up easily after all these fights!)
    Hold on to the world we all remember dying for
    There's some hope left in it yet
    (meaning; there is always hope)

    And the last line took my breath away:
    "Arise and be all that you dreamed, all that you dreamed"

    This is my all time favorite inspiring song ever!!!!
    Flyleaf are incredible!!!

    I feel like this song is about overcoming things. In the end, we will arise and be everything we've ever dreamed. We will be stronger and everything because of God.
