Rise Against - Audience Of One Cover.

Lyrics & Music by Tim McIlrath
Album: Appeal to Reason
Appeal To Reason

"Audience of One" is the second single from their 2008 album Appeal to Reason. Hitting number four on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, it is Rise Against's third-highest charting single, behind the previous single from Appeal to Reason, "Re-Education (Through Labor)", which peaked at number three and the third single "Savior". In mid-October 2008, the L.A. radio station KROQ began playing "Audience of One." Its video was announced to be shot with director Brett Simon on December 9. On January 15, the video for "Audience of One" premiered on MySpace. The single was released on CD and 7" vinyl on March 3, 2009 in the UK. The song is also a downloadable song in Guitar Hero World Tour.
"Audience Of One" is featured with a customized Rise Against Theme in Tap Tap Revenge 2 for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It is featured again in the aforementioned game's sequel, Tap Tap Revenge 3, in a double pack that also includes Ready to Fall. The music video features an eight-year-old boy playing with a miniature world, and throughout the video the boy plays with objects depicting high gas prices, the war in Iraq, the funeral of a soldier, Abu Ghraib prison, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, deforestation, house foreclosures, gay marriage, and illegal immigration before going to bed in the White House. It also features Rise Against performing in a miniature White House lawn, which the boy smashes before the end of the video.
I can still remember - the words and what they meant
As we etched them with our fingers - in years of wet cement
Days blur into each other - though everything seemed clear
We cruised along at half speed, but then we shifted gears.

We ran like vampires from a thousand burning suns
But even then we should have stayed
But we ran away
Now all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved
Run away,
What are we running from ?
A show of hands from those in this audience of one
Where have they gone?

Identities assume us - as nine and five add up
Synchronizing watches -to the seconds that we lost
And I looked up and saw you, I know that you saw me
We froze but for a moment -in empathy
I brought down the sky for you but all you did was shrug
You gave my emptiness a name
And you ran away
Now all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things -that we once loved
Run away
what are we running from?
A show of hands from those in this audience of one
Where have they gone?

We're all okay until the day we're not
The surface shines while the inside rots
We raced the sunset and we almost won
We slammed the brakes, but the wheels went on
We ran away
Now all my friends are gone
Maybe we've outgrown all the things -that we once loved
Run away
what are we running from?
A show of hands from those in this audience of one
Where have they gone?
