I scream as your hands grip my throat
Trying to flee, but i'm enclosed by this rope

Your eyes connect with mine
I turn around and begin to run
My heart beats
My eyes close
My face is to the floor
I embrace the pain once more

This is just one lesson in preperation
One lesson to teach me something new
As i prepare to win

One day i will
Will be back
Back to win this match

I see you visualize me
In a figure four leg lock
I tap out as you lean in
To your figure four leg lock

    General CommentVery very cool song. I laughed out loud when I heard the "figure four" verse. I'm a wrestling fan, so naturally I find this song very amusing.

    But aside from that, I think it can take on multiple meanings. For me personallly, this song makes me think of a girl who sort of dumped me.

    "This is just one lesson in preparation
    One lesson to teach me something new
    As I prepare to win

    One day I will
    Will be back
    Back to win this match"

    These verses can mean that you don't take failure as a reflection of your worth as a person, but as a stepping stone to success. "I will be back" just says that you won't give up and you believe in yourself. You won't let this situation keep you down or depress you.

    "I see you visualize me
    In a figure four leg lock
    I tap out as you lean in
    To your figure four leg lock"

    The way I see it, this is a way of re-framing a potentially emotionally draining thing (like getting dumped) into something funny. When you visualize your ex as a wrestler locking you in a figure four, thinking she has you beat, the whole weight of the situation dissipates. :)
