Fight

Sometimes you gotta fight for your right when you're
Not sure you're in a fight for your life, right?
If you ain't packin' any tactics you might get your ass kicked
Even if you are a little knuckle head
I'm kinda sick of being aggravated, iIm glad I'm hated
I guess I'm doin' somethin' right
That's what happened back in columbine
You gotta know when to stop and don't go over the top
'Cause there's a chamber deep inside the brain
That's covered with chains, so don't be shakin' 'em loose
And if ya do, I'd be runnin' for the hills
'Cause I'm ready to rock and now I'm playin' for real
I gotta fight, fight
You'd better watch out when my adrenaline kicks
I gotta fight fight
It's too late you already been hit damn

[Chorus]
Stick 'em stick em'
Stick em ha ha ha stick em
Stick em' stick em'
Yeah, head for the barricade
Yeah, head for the barricade

This world can make you sick to your stomach so I
Put on my headphones, listen to the deftones
It's gettin' crowded in my spaceship
Livin' in a dream, runnin' from a hate machine
Ya know it's such a drag when there's people talking down to ya
Such a drag thinking everything sucks (do ya?)
Walk away with the spit on your face?
Or do ya draw the line just to give 'em a taste?
'Cause I know its never gonna end,
If it happens again I'm going straight for the throat
Another note, don't forget your had a chance
Now off of the side lines and ready to dance
I gotta fight. fight
Better watch out when my adrenaline kicks
I gotta fight fight
It's too late you already been hit damn

[Chorus]

If you got the guts (head for the barricade)
Then come on down (head for the barricade)
Then come on down (head for the barricade)
And head for the barricade
Fight!
Fight!
Fight!
Fight!

Fight!
Fight!
Fight!
Fight!
Head for the barricade
I ain't playin' around
Head for the barricade
I ain't playin' around

[Chorus]

    General CommentTerrific lyrics, very complex song, but I think I have worked it out. It is the mystery of religion, nobody probably noticed but the first two verses are sang by durst playing two characters, the first verse is done by Durst as a christian, and second as an athiest, pure genius

    i’m kinda sick of being aggravated, i’m glad I’m hated
    i guess i’m doin’ somethin’ right- Because the athiests hate the whole thing to do with god, the christian is saying he could care less if he and his religion are hated, because he believes is his mind he still doing something right for god


    ‘ cuz there’s a chamber deep inside the brain
    that’s covered with chains, so don’t be shakin’ ‘em loose- He is saying to all the other christians sensitive to critisism and vocal batterings, it is great enough that you have faith, but although your religion is mocked by alot of people, stay faithful, don't loose your head, and you will get your wings, for you are the sterotypical angel concience

    such a drag thinking everything sucks (do ya?)
    walk away with the spit on your face?
    or do ya draw the line just to give ‘em a taste?- The athiest on the other hands will go to extreme lenghs for his beliefs, and his beliefs that religion is all a lie, and that it is a spit in the face, and a joke, making mockeries of people converting to christianity


    another note, don’t forget you had a chance- This is a mocking part by the athiest, pretending to be christian, sarcasticly saying a person had a chance and will burn in hell because of this


    head for the barricade
    i ain’t playin’ around- Both the christian and atheist speak here, the christian says head for the barricade, which is the word for church in this song, and the athiest is saying i'm not messing around with this joke you call christianity, i'm not a sheep like you

    An excellant piece by Fred Durst, a song which shows both sides of religion, joke? saved? God? no such thing? It's your opinion, said durst in an interview, and shows that he is very open minded, and can respect both opinions, great work

    General CommentYes...they sing this song. Good for you, Dave!

    j/k. Fight music. I think Fred wanted to put a song in Fight club, but didn't realize he was 5 years late when he released this album. He gives props to Fight Club in Livin' It Up, though...oh well. Going back to my first words...fight music. This song is nothing more than a song to put on a boombox right before you're about to duke it out with somebody. Lots of Bizkit songs are like that, but this one is pretty self-explanitory.

    General CommentI think the person in the song just doesn't wanna take all the shit anymore. He doesn't want to just 'walk away with the spit on his face'. He kinda wants to take revenge on the world and/or the people who messed with him. He thinks everything suck and he doesn't see any sense of life anymore. So this song is basically about revenge or a spree kiling.
    Just my opinion. I can kinda relate to this song.
