"A Fist Fight for Our Fathers" as written by Dustin Addis, Shannon Burns, Anthony Peck and Matt Webb....
Avoid disaster
We must stop sleeping
We better wake up (wake up)
Wake up (wake up)
Before we start drowning

(You know)
We lie, we lie to ourselves
We lie, we lie to ourselves
Yeah

My ears are ringing
From all your screaming
You better face it (face it)
Face it (face it)
Before you've wasted away

(You know)
We lie, we lie to ourselves
We lie, we lie to ourselves
Yeah

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up and start singing!
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up and start singing!
Hit them in the heart!

You're always running
Trying not to stumble
You have to wait it (wait it)
Wait it (wait it)
So let's not lie this time

(You know)
We lie, we lie to ourselves
We lie, we lie to ourselves
Yeah

    General CommentI could be completely wrong with this but here's what I get. It's about living dangerously in denial. The need to wake up or come back to reality and quit lying to one's self. The fast paced feel of the song and the strong yelling singing give the feeling of a fight like the writer/singer is trying fighting with someone to snap out of it. It really is a great connection between the feel of the song and the lyrics.
    Plus its a great bass line and that's just cool.
