"Battle Cry" as written by and Timothy Convy Matthew Palermo....
Oh, is there anything left to say?
You been down so long, you've forgotten to believe (in yourself)
You're watching it slip away
You been kicked around, they got you on your knees
But they're all the same
They laugh and walk away
And they think you'll turn around and go back home

Back at home, they said
You'd never win
You don't just climb the hill and grab the crown
But they're all the same
Scared of judgment day
And they're sure you'll turn around and go back home
But no

We are young, but we will never die
We won't give up, this is our battle cry
We will defeat the other guy!

Gonna sit there in defeat?
You better suck it up boy, and get up off the ground (where's your pride?)
You forget they made you bleed?
They kicked you like a dog when you were down
If there's anyone (anyone)
Lookin' out above (lookin' out)
Then they'll never see us coming to reclaim
Our glorious day

We are young, but we will never die
We won't give up, this is our battle cry
We dreamed the dreams, now we will fight the fight
We will defeat the other guys!

And we'll eat their dreams until they die inside
We'll raise their kids and commandeer their wives
We'll curse their gods and drink up all their wine
We will defeat the other guys!
We will defeat the other guy!
We will defeat the other guy!

    General CommentThis song is HILARIOUS!!!! Just listening to the way Volpe sings it makes me think of it as a complete joke. Every time I listen to the song, I picture a bunch of nerds using this as their anthem. And at the end of the song, I picture them attacking bullies by pulling their hair, etc.

    My Interpretationi don't really picture that when i hear the song...
    although i do picture a bunch of nerds....but like i see them dressed up in like make-shift fighting attire, and then they like just go crazy start beating up the bullys or what have you......
    but then they like take it too far and start like beating up everyone they see.

    like the song starts out all motivational and then like at the end, it's like they took it too far..you know....
