"The Good Fight" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
Consider the odds
Consider the obvious
The martyr is meaningless
The campaign has died

In the planning stages
And the fallen faces
Are the singular proof
That it was ever alive

This purchased rebellion
Has been outbidded
Denounced and rescinded
And left to die championless

Championless, championless

I begged you not to go
I begged you, I pleaded
Claimed you as my only hope
And watched the floor as you retreated

Hope has sprung a perfect dive
A perfect day, a perfect lie
A slowly crafted monologue
Conceding your defeat

This purchased rebellion
Has been outbidded
Denounced and rescinded
And left to die championless

Championless, championless

I begged you not to go
I begged you, I pleaded
Claimed you as my only hope
And watched the floor as you retreated

Does it comfort you to know you fought the good fight?
Basking in your victory, hollow and alone
To boast your bitter bragging rights to anyone who'll listen
While you're left with nothing tangible to gain

    General CommentThis is definitely the coolest Dashboard song. I'm not very good in interpreting song meanings but it sounds like he's singing about somebody that gave up something very special in the name of pride and ended up with nothing.

    General CommentWow, this song is so amazing and yet compared to the other Dashboard songs on this site this one has barely been viewed.

    General CommentI'm with you there Duffman. I think because it is not a song that relates with a lot of people's lives so it's not as popular. Once I figure out what he's truly singing about, I think I'm gonna do the exact opposite of what he's saying not to do and then cry and talk about how this song hits me right in the heart. Man, I have good ideas.

    General CommentYou all are on the right path. I think this girl was acting like she liked this guy. Then when he was prepairing something special like a date or a poem, she sold him out infront of alot of people. To her, he was just a joke. To him, she is missing out on his love. But in the end, he killed them all just like in Carrie! lol...
