Tug of War Lyrics
What, with one thing and another,

A educational good old song by Sir.

I think that with this song, Paul is being both deeply personal and universal. Of course, he is discussing how people fight and compete with each other, and how he yearns for a better world: "In another world..." But I think it's also about his personal fights and competitions, namely, with the other members of the Beatles, especially John-"We expected more, but...we were trying to outdo each other..." Now that John had just passed away, Paul regrets the fact that there was an ever-competitive spirit between them, that didn't allow them to fully reconcile.
