"Knock Me Out" as written by Linda Perry, Marty Wilson-piper and Grace Slick....
You knocked me out
You bit my lip
You held me down
And kept me sober

Through all this time
With no regret
I guess that's just the way I liked it

Maybe
When I'm free
I'll realize all I really wanted
To share all the peace
Something that I never wanted

So wait
Don't go
Seems as though
It's getting scary
So please
Don't you go
Wait
Don't you go

You knocked me out
I can never be the same
I pushed you over
And here we will remain

Confusion new
Do you, and nothing's right
Nobody but you has to
Hold on to the fight
Just before you cry

It won't change you
It won't change me
And I don't even wonder why

Don't touch
Feel so much

And life
Yeah we cry
I know
Baby I know

But fate
I'm waking
I feel
I touch
I breathe
I cry
I know this

So wait
Wait
I said please
Smile just before you cry

Don't you go
You knocked me out
I can never be the same
I pushed you over
But here we still remain
You knocked me out
I can never be the same

I can take the fight
But don't
Don't take it away

You knocked me out
You bit my lip
You held me down and kept me sober

    General CommentI think this is about someone in the singer's life that is very concerned about her and her self-destructiveness. "you knocked me out, bit my lip, held me down and kept me sober"... the singer resents the person's interference, but at the same time she does love her and is afraid to be left alone to her own destructiveness.

    on the other hand, i can see another way of interpreting this too. maybe she is in an abusive relationship but loves the person too much to leave. (I can take the fight, but don't take it away)
