Collapse (Post-America)

Lyrics

When our rivers run dry and our crops cease to grow
And when our summers grow longer and winters won't snow
From the banks of the ocean and the ice in the hills
To the fight in the desert where progress stands still

When our rivers run dry and our crops cease to grow

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
Rise Against really amazing song love this album
Awsome!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! !
There will never be a post-America ! Not as long as the Breath is in me.
I love this song <3
Great song one of my favorites by far
:)
Still as amazing as it was the first time I ever heard it <3
1. Close your eyes 2. Say your name 3. Make a wish 4. Say your crushes name 2x 5. Post this on 4 songs and your crush will ask you out:)
Digging this
True R.A this song is true
God, why couldn't they have stayed the way they were
When the air that we breath becomes air that we choke that's my favorite part
Awesome band! They do speak the truth but awesome song as well
I have several favorites as I am a true music lover but I only have 1 band sticker on my vehicle & It's Rise Against!!
Just f**king awesome follow me if you agree I follow back
How about Rise Against makes an album that combines S&W with RPM and Endgame. But I love all their stuff.
Collapse is a good song
Let's not have one like appeal. Let's lean more tirades RPM or Siren Song, eh?
One of their best songs by far. I want another album like Appeal To Reason.
This has to be one of my favorite Rise Against songs. I love the beat.
@zanderm1999 listen to state of the union, gesthsaneme, art of losing, and to the core. Tim has a great singing voice.
great song perfectly depicts what we're becoming. and i also agree with @some guy you will never meet.
ehmerj8
Don't agree with the global warming and other politics in their songs but what can u expect from Chicago. Good music though.
I agree with some guy
We can learn from these people all we have to do is listen
Love it
Pumps me up everytime I listen to this song. Almost all of their songs are good workout songs. =P
Great song
zanderm1999
Singer is awesome He's too good to scream like in the end
smd3339
Great band. Politically disagree with them, but they have great music and I respect their perspective. One of my favorite bands.

Love the lyrics
Not a huge Rise Against fan (not that I don't like them, just not my favorite), but I really like this song.
Awesome
Rise Against sing the truth. The lyrics are almost prophetic. The world is becoming just as it was in 1984. RA is writing the soundtrack.

:) Aewsome Song!
It's post Amerika; with a K not a C.
I love this song. The melody and pacing are amazing, and the lyrics hit hard. Can't look away from it. And it sets the pace for the rest of the album, which is one of my favorites. (I don't really care for old Rise, sorry.) Also to a comment below, I agree about the Amish and the Native Americans. I love modern society and tech, but we've gone too far too fast.
Why is Remember the Name a similar song? That's a hip-hop song...Colla p s e is punk rock. Someone screwed up.
redjajake
Best song by RA next to Hero of War, but best lyrical meaning. We need to work to stop our only home from dying.
two groups that had it right, The amish, and the Native Americans, we need to clean up our act or i won't make it to 50 and see a scrap of the world i grew up in!

Great band. The message is really one we all need to hear, and one that shouldn't be ignored. Rise Against rocks. Jclaudio just stfu. The evidence is all around you. Open your eyes man.
