On a tuesday in the rain I never thought there'd come a day
if I put myself to the test would I ever raise a fist
would I just shut my mouth, would I just block it out?
I've sworn a million times never to be left,
standing with that feeling
of hopelessness, just standing nervous in the alley
When all is said and through
would I know just what to do
and if I put myself to the test
would I ever raise a fist
would I just shut my mouth or just block it out
I've sworn a million times never to be left,
standing with that feeling
of hopelessness, just standing nervous in the alley
Is it a change of heart,
that keeps us apart
and you say it's true
and we know it's true
when all we have left is me and you
and it's so strange,
when all I have left to say
is I wonder what's worth fighting for?

    My Interpretationi think this song is about being victim of some sort of injustice, and not fighting back. and the person is realising he didn't fight, in his mind he was braver than that. and now he has no more chance to defend himself, so he's left out with "that feeling" of, basically, failing.
