  • This song is great! I want "House Of Fire" to be on an upcoming Captain America movie soundtrack!

  • [Verse 1]
I can see the storms, in her eyes now
I'm falling overboard, in the waves
In over my head and she's a high tide
That keeps pushing me away
I thought that we would build this together
But everything I touch just seems to break
Am I your sail or your anchor?
Am I the calm or the hurricane?
I feel the ground start to shake
I hear a voice shouting, "No!"
But there is no fucking way I'd leave you

[Chorus]
So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now
Like a house on fire we're wrapped in flames
I'd burn you if that's what it takes
To let you know I won't let go of you

[Verse 2]
But is the soundtrack to our lives
The bang of a slamming door?
What happens when we all start to feel like
Nothing matters anymore?
Every day like a chambered round
A trigger pulled, a hammer click
A breath we hold, a world outside I can't control
No matter what I do

    [Chorus]
So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now
Like a house on fire we're wrapped in flames
I'd burn you if that's what it takes
To let you know I won't let go of you

[Verse 3]
And how is it a thing?
That we just wanna hurt each other
I'm waiting on for rain
Feels like is gonna rain forever
Someday you will learn
That all I ever did was for you
And I would do it all again
I would do it all again

[Chorus]
'Til then I'll hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now
Like a house on fire we're wrapped in flames
I'd burn you if that's what it takes
To let you know I can't let go of you
Of you, of you, of you, of you

  • If you look a bit closer, you might catch a cameo of Tim McIlrath and his band mates of Rise Against

  • Que linda prova de amor… parabéns aos produtores e atores. de longe uma belíssima obra de arte. Vida longa a Rise Against!

  • This is the one band still capable of making videos that make me cry. I remember when i firs heard hero of war, and saw the video, i was 13 at the time, i was crying throughout the video. This one! This one struck a chord so deep in me im bawling right now…. Wow…. Beatiful…. I really felt that. It came out of nowhere and hit me with a sucker punch. Rise Against can do no wrong

  • The more I listen to this song and the more I watch the music video, the more I fall in love with it. What a beautiful song from an extremely talented band that deserve more attention.

  • You are the Alpha and Omega. 'Like the Angel' was my love's first song to me almost 15 years ago and this song was the last.

  • It is so beautifull music, lyric and video… I have a small daughter and it makes me cry again and again. You almost miss her and try to fix it, but it makes hurt both.

  • Rise against is one of those band that you can tell that they are getting better and improving. They dont have the I miss nor I like the new rise against, it a wow rise against just sounds more amazing in every new song. A lot of artist aren't unique like that.

  • keep up the work, other band i like went soft cause of todays days and music type i guess:/ stay the same 😀 <3

  • Just saw this video was released on my birthday. Love this song and this band. Can't wait for the new album.

  • House On Fire

    Rise Against

    I can see the storms in her eyes now
    I'm falling overboard in the waves
    In over my head and she's a high tide
    That keeps pushing me away
    I thought that we would build this together
    But everything I touch just seems to break
    Am I your sail or your anchor?
    Am I the calm or the hurricane?

    I feel the ground start to shake
    I hear a voice shouting "No"
    But there is no fucking way
    I'd leave you

    So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade
    You touch me like a razor blade
    I wish there was some other way right now, oh oh
    Like a house on fire we're up in flames
    I'd burn here if that's what it takes
    To let you know I won't let go of you, oh oh

    But is the soundtrack to our lives
    The bang of a slamming door
    What happens when we all start to feel like
    Nothing matters anymore
    Every day like a chambered round, a trigger pulled
    A hammer click, a breath we hold
    A world outside I can't control
    No matter what I do

    So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade
    You touch me like a razor blade
    I wish there was some other way right now, oh oh
    Like a house on fire we're up in flames
    I'd burn here if that's what it takes
    To let you know I won't let go of you, oh oh

    How is it a thing
    That we just wanna hurt each other
    I'm waiting out the rain
    'Cause life is gonna rain forever
    Someday you will learn
    That all I ever did was for you
    And I would do it all again
    I would do it all again

    'Til then I'll hold you like a hand grenade
    You touch me like a razor blade
    I wish there was some other way right now, oh oh
    Like a house on fire we're up in flames
    I'd burn here if that's what it takes
    To let you know I won't let go of you, oh oh

    Of you (oh oh)
    Of you (oh oh)
    Of you (oh oh)
    Of you

  • Always sounded like "I'll F you if that what it takes" to me but then when I read the lyrics I hear it better now

  • Love how this song was basically about Tim dealing with his daughter growing up and how they get into confrontations with each other time to time like any other parent.

  • This song reminds me of when my parents got divorced when I was 14, everything felt like it was the end of the world until my dad grabbed me and promised it would take an army to take me away from him

  • Love you guys! inspired our music a bunch! our new stuff is leaning towards your sound check us out now? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUWS839fwLw

  • some lyrics for you guys:

    somebody once told me the world was gonna roll me i aint the sharpest tool in the shed she was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb and the shape of an L on her forehead well they dont stop coming and they dont stop coming they dont stop coming and i hit the ground running so much to see so much to do so whats wrong with taking the backstreet youll never try if you dont know youll never shind if you dont glow hey now your an all star get your game on go play hey now youre a rockstar get the show on get paid all that glitters is gold only shooting stars break the mold

  • I sincerely doubt anyone in the band will read this, but i wanted my first and only youtube post to be about this song.

    Thank you. For years you have given a melodic voice to how i feel. No just in frustration anger or rage, but in your great ability to capture feelings, good or bad and put them to music.

    I ran miles to your music in college. I understood it in grad school. As a father of a daughter now, this song makes me cry every time i hear it. Not because I am sad, but because I understand this feeling.

    Again thank you

  • Rise Against is my favorite. I'll do any thing to see them😀😀😀😀😀😀😆😆😆😆😆😅😅😲😲😲😲😲

  • Rise against is my number 1 favorite band, ive been a fan of these guys for 12 years. When i listen to this song and watch the video i always have flashbacks of past and current things in my life relating to family and significant others. This song hits home

  • This video just brought me to tears. Im a long time RA fan, and a new father. I love that girl more deeply than I can fathom and this beautifully made video just broke me down. I would do anything for her, regardless the cost. Im not the crying sort, but dammit this got me. Thanks as always Rise Against you guys are amazing!

  • Rise Against is like that loyal friend you wished you had. The friend who shares the same emotional struggles with you and the one who's been there since you were born. Been a fan for a decade and will never not be a fan ❤️

  • This band used to be so damn good. 2001 – 2006… almost every song was great.
    2008 – present…. fucking Snoozeville.

  • I really like ra fanbase, people who listens to them seems to stick with them for life. Im a drifter when it comes to music but when it comes down to serious or hard times in my life i allways seem to lean on this band, got me trough a lot of shit and im sure will continue doing so. Rock on my friends.

  • When youj have grown up with a band its so nice to see them still making varied and interesting music.
    These guys do it for the love of what they do, you can tell that

  • I liked this song since I first heard it. Great emotional imagery. I knew it was about a volatile relationship. I didn't realize it was a father and daughter one. This hit me like a ton of bricks it encapsulates all my fears as a parent. I'm fucking weeping at work right now. just wanted to listen to some punk rock, man.

  • When my wife and I had our first and only daughter, things got really rocky for awhile between us, business wasn’t doing to well. Everything was falling apart. And there were times I wanted to give up. (I’m telling you with with tears in my eye cuz I never said this before) I would play this song over and over again when I would pick up my daughter from daycare and tell a 2 years old that “this is our song”.. “To let you know I won’t let go of you” that line kills me every time. I would never leave my daughter no matter how hard it gets. I love you baby like you have no idea. This song couldn’t have come out a better time for me. Thank you RA. Thank you so much.
