"Battle of One" as written by and Jared Leto....
Try and stop me
Try and save me

    General CommentI think that the meaning of this song is really up for the individual to interpret. There are so many different possibilities for what it could mean. As for me, when I hear it, I think of martyrdom.

    My InterpretationHe is using "falling" the same way some artist use darkness, as a good thing. He wants to fall back into his own mind and world. You can try as hard as you want to but you aren't going to stop him from doing what he wants.

    General CommentIt's just about invincible in existence, if you ask me. The title says it all, it's one person's struggle with survival.

    And this song is my favourite 30STM song of the lot. Thank god it got included. Try singing it some time - there's nothing that's frees you up so much, you just let fucking rip.

    General CommentHmmm maybe redking is right, although id say the title goes witth one persons sturggle for survival to. However id say one persons struggle to achieve something could be closer. Yeah not many lyircs, short song.

    General CommentI LOVE this song. I always listne to it before a vball game. As far as the meaning goes, I think it's about the battle that everyone goes through when they try to improve at something. You can't improve without being challenged or falling every once in a while.
