"Forfeit" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
Will not be shaken and jump into this,
And be persuasive,
Just carry on,
And make my mind up,
To go through this,
Or be firm,
And sit in silence.

'Cause I want to fight,
I want to fight,
I want to prove I'm right,
I want to fight,
I want to fight,
So turn and forfeit.

Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit

Learn from this,
Prehistoric dance,
And refrain from talking,
It solve our problems

Medicated,
Could do some good,
Or find a way to relate,
Or just shut up.

Cause I want to fight,
I want to fight,
I want to prove I'm right,
I want to fight,
I want to fight,
So turn and forfeit.

Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit

I want to fight,
I want to fight,
I want to prove I'm right
I want to fight,
I want to fight,
I want to prove I'm right
I want to fight,
I want to fight,
So turn and forfeit.
I want to fight,
I want to fight,
So turn and forfeit.

So step up.
So step up,
And forfeit.
So step up.
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit
Forfeit

    General CommentThe lyrics alone don't do the song justice - they aren't bad lyrics, not at all. But just my looking at the lyrics, the song seems like your usual bland, angry rock song of today.

    Chevelle's talent strikes me speechless. They are absolutely amazing. In most bands today, it's hard to get any emotion. There's anger, but it always seems false and it feels as if it were created just to make the song appeal to hormonal, frusterated teenage boys. But this song is proof that an array of emotion can be portrayed in a song - and not just in vocals.

    It's truly amazing when you can feel it in the guitars, the bass, the drums, and the way they combine. And Chevelle has that emotion packed into every little space it can be in the song. It's hard to find any other words to sum it up than 'absolutely amazing'.

    General CommentFirst of all i'm pretty sure it's

    Learn from this
    Prehistoric Dance....but that's not point

    I think this song means that he's made his mind up about something (not sure what) and there's no way anybody is going to stop him, so they better turn away and stop trying to persuay him because there's no way anybody can stop him...

    who knows what it means....The only person who knows what it really means is the writer of this song...

    General Commentthis song seems to be about an arguement. i think the author starts out in revealing that he is always submissive, never has a voise or manages to stand up for himself. the chorus then, i feel, is a sort of inner urge to be strong, to desire to fight back because he feels that this particular agruement is his favor. the 2nd verse is sort of him reverting back to the part of him that just sits, listens and accepts the other person's slandering or accusations or complaints. the dynamics of the strong grow with his temper and loss of patience when he knows he's right. he screams "forfeit" because he feels it is obvious the other person has no valid excuse or way of winning.

    General CommentI think this song is basically about a guy trying to get people to see things from his point of view... but that's just me. But the way Pete's voice during the verses is hypnotic! I couldn't listen to that song while I was doing my homework, because everytime it started playing I just had to stop and listen! It's weird... >_>
