"Combat" as written by and Chino/carpenter Moreno....
This time you get the finger pointed right at you
Which side are you on? Which side are you on?
I asked you what side you wanted on
Which side are you on? Which side are you on?

A waste of time
Don't believe
Can't decide to
Hit the ground
Make your mind
It's holding me
Down
And always did
Down
And all we get
Down

This time you think it pointed right at you
Whose side are you on? Whose side are you on?
I asked you what side did you point it at?
Whose side are you on? Whose side are you on?
On?
Huh?
Why?

A waste of time
We don't believe
Can't decide till you've
Hit the ground
Thank you much
If you don't believe
Can't decide
Till you
Hit the ground
Make your mind
It's holding me
Down
I wanna get it
Down
And I wanna get it
Down
And I wanna get out

You don't think that I don't know
'Cause I do
Nice try
'Cause that's what you really got
Lie.
Lie.
Lie.
Lie.

That's something else
You say
You say you're something else
Decide
Whose side
You're on
Whose side are you on? Whose side are you on?
C'mon
Whose side are you on? Whose side are you on?
Whose side are you on? Whose side are you on?
Decide one

    General Comment" You're a fake person" song. Decide what side you are on, decide for YOURSELF. "You can't decide until you've hit the ground" You can't decide until you need someone or until you NEED to choose. An uncertain person. A person without an opinion who is useless and who is wasting his time. I guess...

    General CommentThere's some whispering in the begining of this song, anyone know what's being said? The whole new album is great, deftones evolved into another great sound.

    General CommentThis reminds me of a POD song. I don't know why. Maybe the repeated barking of which side you're on. It's alright.

    General CommentI know there is just an astounding number of "This is about Bush" interpretations, but I think the words in the beginning sounds like Bush statements. WIth that out of the way, I agree with all of you, this.

    I just simply love this song, it to me is the most raw sounding off of Saturday Night Wrist which is fast becoming as addicting to me as White Pony. Not quite to Around the Fur, yet... YET :)

    Combat is such a simple and beautiful title as this song is. PIck a side and hit the ground (perhaps a reference to "hit the ground running?" Don't be wishy-washy because I don't believe your lies.

    It's almost like Chino and Co. are calling someone out to a fight.
