"The Night I Lost the Will to Fight" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn, Clint Frederick Schnase and Ted James Stevens....
I need a catalyst, to rekindle the flame
That once burned within these fists where defeat remains

The night has fallen down the staircase...

I need a catalyst, to rekindle the flame
That once burned within these fists where defeat remains
One Februrary night, we screamed our agonies
And I swear I tried to care
I tried, I tried...

But the icicles hung down like prison bars...

I need a catalyst, to rekindle the flame
That once burned within these fists where defeat remains
One Februrary night, we screamed our agonies
And I swear I tried to care
I tried, I tried...
(And) I lost the will to fight...
The will to fight...
(I lost the will to fight... I lost the will to fight... I lost it... I lost it...
I lost the will to fight.)

    General Commentwell i would classify it as emo and indie. i don't know, i just don't think it's possible to classify.

    General CommentThis song is great. I've just discovered Cursive recently (without Kazaa, I would probably only be exposed to Nsync and the like). This song definately describes a love that wouldn't work out... I can relate to it pretty well. I always thought Cursive was emo, but like any musical genre, it's hard to define.

    General Commentthis is a great song to my opinion..but..to the people like "lunch box angel" and "grrrlskout" i have to say something..whats the need of labels? can't people just leave it at that it's just a good song, and why spend a second more trying to place a title on the band..there are needs of labels, but just not here..i am a girl, but i have to quote the greatest song writter on this one "..but people need guidelines and they need to put a label on stuff to give each other advice when they are passing songs."-Chris Carrabba..
