This Means War Lyrics
For a battle that you can't win
Swing as hard as you can swing
It will still mean nothing
Should've seen it coming
It had to happen sometime
But you went and brought a knife
To an all out gun fight
And the only...

You people are over thinking it. Chad, himself, even admitted in an interview that it was written about a certain person, but wouldn't say who because it could land him in court. Just look up "Nickelback talk Madison Square Garden Concert, "This Means War" on youtube and he talks about it at 2:50 into the interview. Geez, people!

Um, this song is a shot back at the Black Keys' drummer for badmouthing NB. Has nothing to do with any of what you're saying.

what this song says is how even the best of friends can turn bitter enemies by a small dispute, maybe getting in the way of a girl, how silly war is and how it can ruin great things.

This song speaks about how people spoil one's life by actually by either shitty ways. It might be stealing one's love, or stealing one's friends. Although it speaks about a person's anger on what they want to do against that person, it is also regarded as a comical song along with the greatest irony, they want to do something, but they cannot do it at all!

This one seems like kind of a sarcastic play on war. It seems to emphasize how it always seems to start as a result of a small disagreement (Say anything you want, but talk will get you nowhere). I think the chorus outlines it the best, because "You've gone too far!!!", "Who do you think you are!?" are usually used more in stupid arguments.
In short - this is Nickelbacks way of saying how immature war actually is.
