"Fight to Forget" as written by Jason Mcarthur, Anthony Armstrong, Randy Armstrong, Michael Barnes and Rob Graves....
You’re a monster in my mind
You’re the one I can’t leave behind
You crawled inside, I watched you die
Did you think that you could bury me

Your love is a lie
I will fight to forget
Your love is a knife
I will die to forget

Did you get what you want from me
You weren’t the one that I thought you’d be
Everything it cost, everything I lost
Did you think that you could erase me

Your love is a lie
I will fight to forget
Your love is a knife
I will die to forget
I will fight to forget you
I will die to forget you
Let me go, let me go

You’re abandoned
You’re broken down
Your sickness, blame it on me
Your hopelessness
Your insanity
You’re screaming, blame it on me

Your love is a lie
I will fight to forget
Your love is a knife
I would die to forget
I will fight to forget you
I will die to forget you

    General CommentIn my opinion this song is about addiction and the struggle that follows during recovery.

    The addiction is the "monster in my mind"

    "Your love is a lie" refers to the feeling of love felt when your high and how it's a lie that lead(s) to addiction.

    "I will fight to forget" he is basically saying ignorance is bliss, that he will fight the cravings to forget the false love the high provides

    The verses are conversations with a personification of his addiction

    My InterpretationI think this song is about sin. It is a monster inside of you that you can't escape from. Sin is trying to destroy you from the inside. The "love" of sin is the pleasure that it brings you in the moment. Ultimately, this love is an empty lie. In this life, we fight against the sin, and when we die, we are finally freed from it in heaven.
