You fight the daily battles
Of a million things created
Of and around what you fear and know
And fear not knowing, we get thrown
Into the face of a thousand trains
You've trained upon our ears
Here we are, here we are, still listening

And you fight the good fight to win
Until the death over a thing that doesn't care
Carry any weight at all and doesn't even know
It signed up for duty in a war that you created
Built with the help of those who didn't care
But gave you tools, supplies, and dared you:
"Build a place to hide your fear"

I will watch you fight the sky
You make them run and hide
You wait for it to die now
I will watch you fight the sky
You make them run and hide
I'll watch you fight the sky now

I will watch you fight the sky
And wait for it to die
And we wait, and we wait, and we wait
For a strong wind to pick you up
And rip the pain and slam it down
Into a wall it can't climb up
Get passed, knock down

And so we wait
Pick your battles, save your force
For the fights that really matter
But still you demand waiting for the world to understand
And to care, to know, to love, and yes, to give a damn
And if it runs, may it hide
I will watch you fight the sky

I will watch you fight the sky
You make them run and hide
You wait for it to die now
I will watch you fight the sky
You make them run and hide
I'll watch you fight the sky now

The color's changing now
The dim light shifting to those across the world
Who don't know, don't care, don't worry if you've won
So tell me if it changes, fixes, curses or remains
All the ones you left behind, keep nearer still
And remind that asking means fighting, means winning
Needs doing, and you have won
Oh now you have won
That asking means fighting, means winning, needs doing
And you have won it all

I will watch you fight the sky
You make them run and hide
You wait for it to die now
I will watch you fight the sky
You make them run and hide
I'll watch you fight the sky now

You fight the daily battles
Of a million things created
Of and around what you fear and know
And fear not knowing we get thrown
Into the face of a thousand trains
You've trained upon our ears
Here we are here we are still listening

    General CommentI think this song is based around the power of conformity. I think it's talking about how we know our generation today is sort of dark but were afraid to save it due to the fact we think we'll be hated for being different. Then when someone does break free we make them feel terrible so that we won't break our fake selves and reveal the real us. As much as we may deny it their is mass conformity among the youth of our world today and nobody's going to change it. Despite the fact we're all hating it most of us are participating in it. This seems to be talking about the fact that if individually we all just be ourselves there will be no norm. and therefore no basis on which to judge people. lots of problems would dissapear but we do nothing about it. Again as I said though we all hate it we all do it Therefore continuing the cycle. You do it...someone saw you they do it...someone saw them that person does. And so on until we are all trapped in a mold of lies pain and self destruction.

    General CommentI LOVE this song and I LOVE Gavin! To me, this song is about overcoming obstacles that the world throws at us, as well as our own insecurities. You know, the whole "You are your own worst enemy" thing.

    General CommentWOW! Loving this song!!! A friend told me to check out this song, and MAN!!! It is SO WORTH IT!!!!!! I wish I'd heard it sooner!!!! If I had to give it a meaning, I'd say it was about a close friend/bf/gf watching their friend/gf/bf working hard to reach their goals they've set themselves even though they seem so far-fetched. It's about breaking through the glass ceiling and going above and beyond that!
    This song is so overwhelming and beautiful, it ROCKS!!!!
