Hey-o here comes the danger up in this club
When we get started man we ain't gonna stop
We're gonna turn it out till it gets too hot
Everybody, say hey-o
Tell 'em turn it up till they can't no more
Lets get this thing shakin like a disco...

    This is a setire on people who get together to do something big but are afraid when it comes to action against the powers that be since they are also beholden to them for their survival. So their movement fissles to a courtesy calls asking their masters to join them (ie understand and take care of them sympathetically).

    Courtesy Call by Thousand Foot Krutch, about fighting the dark forces in this world. Since this band is a Christian band. I think this song is about God and for his people who believe in Him to stay strong and keep up the good fight. II Timothy 6:11-12. KJV

    For the latest comment, I don't think it's about a reoccurring dream. About the fight you mentioned, I think they are aware that many evil forces are everywhere and they they were awakened and they knew they have to fight. There are many comments here which interpreted this song.

    My brother and I talked about it and it could be a reoccurring dream. ‘Awaken from this never ending fight’. I could be be wrong though.

    Its about judgment day and the fact that people who believes in Jesus go to heaven.

    "I am not afraid of the storm that comes my way
    When it hits, it shakes me to the core
    And makes me stronger than before"

    He´s not afraid of Jesus return and the end of this world because he knows then he´s going to heaven and every bad thing in this world we be destroyed.

    "It's not a question about trust
    But will you stand with us
    Can you feel it, make it real"

    He´s asking someone/someones, if they still believe and stand for it.

    "I think it might wash away tonight
    Awaken from this never ending fight"

    He says it might be the end tonight and it all could end.

    "There's a rumble in the floor
    So get prepared for war
    When it hits it'll knock you to the ground
    When it shakes up everything around"

    This means he´s telling other Christians be ready for possible persecutions and the judgement day.

    "But survival is a must
    So will you stand with us"

    He means if we wanna live we must believe.

    TFK is a CHRISTIAN BAND & I don't see ANY biblical interpretations(except the 2 that are mine). It couldn't possibly be more obvious that Courtesy call is warning all of us Christians to be ready for Christ's return. It also tells us to prepare for the coming war (persecution & even death)that we as believers will endure in Christ's name if we don't deny him. If none of you are aware & ready for what's to come,then you need to put the music down and pick up a bible,talk to God and ready yourselves. This song warns us to BE READY!! This song is not hard to understand-open your eyes people!

    They are definitely warning of the coming rapture of the church,"this is your last warning a courtesy call". The war that they're talking about is either a coming literal war on the U.S. but more than likely is the coming war/fight against Christians and their coming persecution and even death brought on by the government(new world order) that Revelation talks about. It could possibly even be talking about the battle of Armageddon, but I don't think so. For any bible believing Christian it is very simple to understand that they are talking about being ready for Christ's return.

    I feel it says that there is a war and its coming
    "there's a rumble in the floor so be prepared for war" and saying God warns you and after so long its finally gonna hit "this is your last warning a courtesy call"

    The definition of the song courtesy call probably means to get prepared for war. This is my opinion because in the beginning of the second verse it says " there's a rumble in the floor so get prepared for war. When it hits it will knock you to the ground when shakes up everything around."

    The song's meaning is telling you that you shouldn't try to fight alone.

    Something tells me that the person singing know something bad is coming up and tell us to prepare for it. It could be a good song to amovie actually. There is something deeper in the song, but I don't think there is a direct meaning behind.

    I feel like they are talking about the hard times everyone faces, and that we should not give up 'cause good times are ahead of us all.

    I agree that the whole "club" thing only is a metaphor.
    Especially the lines
    "I am not afraid
    Of the storm that comes my way
    When it hits it shakes me to the core
    And makes stronger than before
    It's not question about trust
    But will you stand with us"

    would be very unfitting for some ordinary people partying in an ordinary club. It's something bigger.
    Maybe the "storm" are hard times in life and the persona is eager to face the struggle, shouting out to their confidants to get ready and to all the other people around/in their way to get out of there before the "storm" arrives.

    I feel that its saying that God is calling you to battle to fight the Devil
