"We Should Fight" as written by and Ezra Mordechai Furman....
I wrote this song in a paper bag:

Oh! MMM!

I watched my body as it disappeared
I watched my body as it disappeared whoa
I saw the blood dripping from my beard uh huh
I couldn't tell you no
I couldn't tell you no

I walk around all day inside a dream
I walk around all day inside a dream whoa
Inside your head no one will hear you scream uh huh oh no
And no (no!) one can see your face
no (no!) one can see your face no! ah ah

I'm not a monster I'm a human being
I'm not a monster I'm a human being whoa
And I'm the greatest thing you've ever seen uh huh oh oh oh
I'll be your shining star
I'll be your shining star oh oh oh!

And little babies got their headphones on tonight oh!
Play that rock and roll when mommy's gone they feel alright
And they shine so bright they shine so bright
I think they'll be alright wooo!

Don't want to grow up and become a man
Don't want to grow up and become a man no
They make you lose your face and lose your hands that's right
I'm (I'm) just a little kid
I'm (I'm) just a little kid
I don't want to work in no factory job baby

A-can you hear it out in Boston town
A-can you hear it out in Boston town whoa
I know what love is and they'll show you how ah ha
Love (is) just a little song
Love (is) just a little song ah ah ow! Woo!

And can you hear that sound of my voice on your pillow oh
I want to be that little lonely face inside you window
Don't give in no don't give in
I think that we should fight whoa!

    General CommentThere is a fear of disappearing into anonymity present throughout this song. It seems to be related to coming of age and entering into the working class. Ezra yearns to transcend this kind of life via the preservation of his humanity, which he taps into through music and community. Ultimately, he seeks meaningful interpersonal relationships. He doesn't think that these come easy, nor should they. Instead Ezra encourages conflict. He believes that this will make him real again. By fighting for true connection to others, he is able to put his vitality into sharp focus and escape a society that would otherwise see him drown in a lifeless sea of dead-end jobs. Ezra chooses to rally against the monotony and listlessness of adulthood. Even though we tend toward isolation, Ezra issues a battle cry for shared experience. He refuses to give up on his radical dreams in which artistic expression and everyday life collide. If we can just rediscover the magic we once knew as children, then we will surely be all right.
