"Running Battle" as written by Sergio Pizzorno and Christopher Karloff....
All lyin' across the ground
Try not to make no sound
When two men goin' break ya down
Two men goin' break ya down, I breathe
All lyin' across the ground
Try not to make no sound
When two men goin' break ya down, I said
Two men goin' break ya down, I breathe

I take down what I need
Cause you know I need to breathe
I'm tired of walking on another plane
Another plane cause I feel insane, I
Step back to get to you
Cut back I'm fallin' through
Another day I feel the same
I'm cutting and I'm bleeding here with you

All lyin' across the ground
Try not to make no sound
When two men goin' break ya down
Two men goin' break ya down, I breathe

All lyin' across the ground
Try not to make no sound
When two men goin' break ya down, I said
Two men goin' break ya down, I breathe

So keep those voices down
Even if you don't make no sound
A thousand voices makin' all the mistakes
The fire escapes and this code must break
I
Step back to get to you
Cut back I'm fallin' through
Another day I feel the same
I'm cutting and I'm bleeding here with you

All lyin' across the ground
Try not to make no sound
When two men goin' break ya down, I said
Two men goin' break ya down, I breathe

    General CommentIt always struck up images of urban guerrilla warfare. Then i saw the club foot video which is like a cold war eastern europe and i think thats a similar vibe.
    Its very dark and sinister as well it feels like an attack is imminent. Great tune

    General CommentThis song is about ...a lot of things...all the people that countrol this nation, world...so on..
    for example politicians...they r the ones across the line...
    This singer is the one who is frustrated with all of it, with the way these people run this place...he wants to change the things...
    the ones across the lines also include all of us who live like sycophants..and dont even put in an effort to make a change explained by "thousand voices making mistakes"
    and every day he is trying hard to fight the system and make this a better place but falls through everytime and thats what he means by he is bleeding...yet the next day he gets up and fights!

    General Comment1st para- sounds like a hostage situation...
    2nd- sounds more personal now...
    3rd +4th - same as 1, so...
    5th - a mix of 1st and 2nd

    conclution- either hostage or blackmail... I'm thinking blackmail.

    General CommentNow I'm beginning to think it's about not really -having- a freedom of speech.

    General CommentJust to clarify, here, the lyrics are "To make or break you down", not "two men". Although the wrong lyrics are funny as hell as they were. =P

    General Commenti think it's just a really hostile situation, inside mentally, emotional, or physical, you can fully tell with kasabian lyrics
