Rise Against "I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore" (lyric video)
Published Jun 10, 2014Rise Against streamed a snippet of new single "I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore" last week in a trailer for their upcoming The Black Market LP, but the band are now giving fans the song in full via a new lyric video.
The Chicago punks are seen here in various promotional pictures, with a camera zooming in and out of the staged shots as lyrics scroll across the screen. Amongst crunchy rhythms and speedier punk passages, Tim McIlrath weighs in on the walls closing in around him, noting that an apparently bogus situation has to change ("I don't want to be here anymore / I know there's nothing left worth staying for").
"Rise Against has always been a political band, but also a personal band," McIlrath had previously said in a press statement. "We've always had songs that have a foot in both worlds. This album is a lot more introspective to me."
The Black Market hits retailers July 15 via Interscope.
