"The Fight Back" as written by and Mcleod Norton....
Sit back as you watch these pigs deceive you
Dress you up with pride so they can beat you down
As a passenger, watch the world roll by
Sedate the fire so it can multiply
Can you still remember they comatose arrange
Poison you with weakness so your pacified deranged

You gotta fight back take control
You gotta fight back take control
You gotta fight back take control
You gotta fight back take control

I'll be the one to make, I'll be the one to take
I'll be the one who knows right for me, I'll be the one to decide
I'll be the one who's got pride, I'll be the one who knows right for me

One generation to the next is backed up
Money is god indeed the purging factor
Power is not disguised when governments empathies
Corporate sentiment is working hard in overdrive
They soothed you into numbness your mind is all in vain
Pray for the deceivers sabotage the games they play

You gotta fight back and take control
You gotta fight back and take control
You gotta fight back and take control
You gotta fight back and take control

I'll be the one to make, I'll be the one to take
I'll be the one who knows right for me, I'll be the one to decide
I'll be the one who's got pride, I'll be the one who knows right for me
I'll be the one to make, I'll be the one to take
I'll be the one who knows right for me, I'll be the one to decide
I'll be the one who's got pride, I'll be the one who knows right for me

No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down
No! they can't keep us down

    My InterpretationAgree @_freak_ and would go a step further to say it is about fighting back so that government is no longer controlled by corporations (or the dollar/greed).

    This really speaks to me because in Australia there is a generally large portion of the population apathetic to politics, which is probably exacerbated by the poor quality of parties and leadership we have in this country.

    This song's message is still as relevant now as when it was release ... fight back!
