"Up In Arms" as written by Nate Mendel, Dave Grohl and Pat Smear....
The rain is here, and you, my dear, are still my friend
It's true two of us are back as one again
I was the one who left you
Always coming back
I cannot forget you, girl
Now I am up in arms again

The rain is here, and you, my dear, are still my friend
It's true, the two of us are back as one again
I was the one who left you
Always coming back
I cannot forget you, girl
Now I am up in arms again

Together now, I don't know how this love could end
My lonely heart, it falls apart for you to mend
I was the one who left you

Always coming back I cannot forget you, girl
Now I am up in arms again
I was the one who left you

Always coming back I cannot forget you, girl
Now I am up in arms again
I was the one who left you

Always coming back I cannot forget you, girl
Now I am up in arms again

    General CommentPeople use the term " up in arms" when someone is ready to fight. This song is about a relationship that continuously fails, but there is a special connection that is worth fighting for. He is saying that he's ready to fight for this relationship again.

    General Commentif you listen to the end of the song when he says he can't forget you girl, the last line is actually cant forget you gil, referring to his old record producer
