The Fight Lyrics

The problem with society is how you teach and if they'll believe you
We'll fight this battle for years to come
Til' we only accept that we can stand on our own

Grandfather used his hands,
He worked them to the bone (worked them to the...

    I'm with the last guy who commented, I believe it's a critic to communism and socialist thinking in modern life, that's why he mention the work of his grandfather, and after defending the capitalism over socialism he sais "don't try to get me confused 'cause I do understand that sometimes people need help when there's problems going on" so he isn't cold, he isn't saying that capitalism is perfect, but with government giving everything to people you just make a lazy society like the URSS society just like afanassiev wrote. "Lazy, cold and tired" come on, sounds perfectly like URSS, the song seems very self explaining, "you need more than one person to fight the fight" communism is a colectivist system, seeing society as a whole while capitalism sees society as a set of individuals. And there is more but lol, I think is enough.

    I believe it's about standing on your own two feet. Being a man, and working for what you have and want in life. I believe he is pointing a finger at the ones who sit around all day. They don't work. They don't support themselves or their family. They don't provide anything to society. They don't do anything to help themselves. They just sit there and complain about what's wrong with their life while taking any handout they can. There's also a few lines that support my idea that he is saying that previous generations have worked hard and got us to where we are at and now nobody wants to do anything to move us farther. Nobody wants to push not only themselves or us as a whole for further achievement as a society. I can relate with this song quite a bit. I was raised to work for everything you have. Work for everything you want. If life is pushing you down get up and punch it right in the fucking face. I'm still young and have a lot to achieve in life but I look around while I make these strides for betterment and see young adults my age doing nothing. It makes me sick. I think we have just lost our drive and work ethic in our modern society. We have become weak and I pray that one day in the near future we wake up and find that drive again.

    I believe it’s about war Soldiers we work ourselves to the bone to the point that no civilian will ever understand. It takes more than one percent? To fight the fight I’m an Infantryman we are the 1% of the 1% so that leads me to believe this is a pro military song as they have done many in the past

    It's about when you deal with bad or fake friends and they sign it to you.And then in the end you realize your the one to fight the fight to not letting them take you down and make them understand.
    When i hear this song i feel my bad groups of friends, that's why i think about this song.
    I'm not exactly sure but for me this songs tells me this.
