"Fight" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
We wake up different, rifle through our dreams
Another placid day, ripples at the seams

Do you think I bow out cause I think you're right?
Or cause I don't wanna fight?
So tangle-minded then so becalmed
It's all so subway-grim and then it's gone

Do you think I bow out cause I think you're right?
Or cause I don't wanna fight?
We get so weary, taking fish off hooks
It's not as effortless as it may look

Do you think I bow out cause I think you're right?
Or cause I don't wanna fight?
We lay down seething, smell our pillows burn
And drift off to the place where you'd think we'd learn

Do you think I bow out cause I think you're right?
Or cause I don't wanna fight?
I said, "I give"

    General CommentI think this song is someone explaining fighting with their girlfriend. He is saying, I don`t bow out or give in because I think your right but because I don`t want to fight. Some lines suggest how quickly things change after a fight, how quickly they go back to normal, such as: "It`s all so subway-grim and then it`s gone".

    The end of the song describes how the couple go to bed angry with each other; "We lay down seething and smell our pillows burn and drift off to a place where you`d think we`d learn". This also describes how they dream of being happy all the time like they probably once were, the singer is saying you would think we`d stop fighting when we dream about happy times but we don`t.
