"These Fighting Words" as written by Michael Spreitzer, Jeffrey Kendrick, John Boecklin, Jon Miller and Bradley Dez Fafara....
Pleading your case while taking the eternal high ground

[Incomprehensible]
Havoc on the airwaves I'm listening
Don't see any daylight glistening
Long for the home, I left yesterday
Those memories slowly decay

Two highways, the fork in the road
Which one to take? Through the middle they rode

These fighting words deserve exile, banished
Unbelievable, unbelievable, invincible, right

Fucking feast for the eyes
Believe now, beast killer arise
In my opinion this dominion is mine
Banished, days gone awry

These fighting words deserve exile, banished
Unbelievable, unbelievable, invincible
These fighting words deserve exile, banished
Unbelievable, unbelievable, invincible

These fighting words deserve exile, banished
Unbelievable, unbelievable, invincible
These fighting words deserve exile, banished
Unbelievable, unbelievable, invincible

Damn, goddamn invincible
Goddamn invincible, unbelievable

    General Commentthe lead guitar parts on this are nothign short of perfect. the chor is possibly the best that dez has ever laid down.

    but the meaning of this song is kinda obvious, it is just 'dont start shit if you arent ready to take it'. sort of like, 'fight if you are going to, but if you are just going to talk, then leave, and never come back'.

    General CommentI just discovered this song a few days ago and it is the most goddamn awesome song( next to Final Six by Slayer). I listen to it every day and it will never get old! The guitar solo is the best part. When ever I am at the gym, the solo pumps me up really good.

    My InterpretationI'm definitely thinking the song is about the strive for change, and the fear of change that many people have

    "Two Highways, a fork in the road/Which one to take? Through the middle they rode" talks about carving a new path; making change. Doing something new
    Then it goes into how "These fighting words deserve exile; Banished"; which goes into peoples fear of change; they don't want to leave the comfort of what they have now "Long for the home I left yesterday"; and then goes to talk about how regardless of backlash; change will happen, "Unbelievable, [yet] Invincible"

    The idea of change and progress will always be there; people will always strive for it, with or without the support of neophobic masses
