"Hold On" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
(Hold on, people hold on)
(Hold on, people hold on)

I'm in there superstitious
And life can be so vicious
Learning on your own
Can turn your heart to stone

Apocalyptic mind
My head was full of sorrow
Whispered words of logic
Things I need to learn

I feel like we are the only ones alive
I feel like we are the only ones alive

So hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, you know there ain't a lot of time
But I know that we can make it
You better hold on (hold on, people hold on)
You better hold on (hold on, people hold on)

Until you get some pepper spray
And water canons on the way
Fighting on your own
Can turn your heart to stone

And truth is on the march again
Wipe those tears away
Apocalyptic mind
She soothes me with her soul

I feel like we are the only ones alive
I feel like we are the only ones alive

So hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, you know there ain't a lot of time
But I know that we can make it
You better hold on
So hold on, hold on, hold on
You better hold on, you know there ain't no lot of time
But I know that we can make it
You better hold on (hold on)
You better hold on (people hold on)
You better hold on (hold on)
You better hold on (people hold on)
You better hold on (hold on, people hold on)

I feel like we are the only ones alive
I feel like we are the only ones alive
I feel like we are the only ones alive
I feel like we are the only ones alive

Well you better hold on
You better hold on, hold on
You better hold on, you know there ain't a lot of time
But I know that we can make it

You better hold on (so hold on)
You better hold on (hold on, hold on)
You better hold on (hold on, hold on)
You know there ain't a lot of time (hold on, hold on)
But I know that we can make it (hold on, hold on)

Until you get some pepper spray (hold on, hold on)
The water canons on the way (hold on, hold on)
Apocalyptic mind (hold on, hold on)
She soothes me with her soul (hold on, hold on)

I feel like we are the only ones alive (hold on, hold on)
Apocalyptic mind (hold on, hold on)
I feel like we are the only ones alive

    General CommentI think this song is possibly about a soldier that is either saying goodbye to a girl to fight in a war, or has either just returned home from a war.

    The lyrics "I feel like we are the only ones alive" could suggest that if the man is in a war some or many of his mates could of been killed and he fears that he may die to but the though of his sweetheart back home is keeping him going as he has lost people close to him in the war.

    I also think that the words "hold on" could support the above paragraph as the thought of his girl is keeping him going and he is holding on to his feelings and thoughts of her.

    Whereas if he has just retuned home from the war he has seen horrific things and wants to hold on to his girl and not let her go after seeing people lose their lives on battle
