I've seen a rising statue
Next to a crumbling building
And a city scapes call to arms.
(Yeah!) Alright! (Yeah!)

I've seen a rising statue
(Rising up!)
Next to a crumbling building
(You're going down!)
And a city scapes call to arms.
(Our fight, we won't back down, no!)

So we've got our fists out
(Rising up!)
To show our numbers,
(You're going down!)
Show our numbers in this fight!
(Our fight! Our fight, yeah!)

I warn, I warn you...
I warn, I warn you...

A fistful of revolution,
(Rising up!)
And it's reaching for a brick,
(You're going down!)
And you are the target!
(Our fight, we won't back down, no!)

I warn, I warn you...
I warn, I warn...!
I warn, I warn you...
I warn you! Alright!
I warn, I warn you...
I warn you! I warn you!

A fistful of revolution,
And it's reaching for a brick,
And you're the target.
Yeah, you're the target.
A fistful of revolution,
And it's reaching for a brick.

We won't back down, we won't give in!
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
A fistful of revolution!
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
A fistful of revolution!
(Won't back down, we won't give in!)
A fistful of revolution!
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
A fistful of revolution!
(Won't back down, we won't give in to you!)

A fistful of revolution,
And it's reaching for a brick,
And you're the target.
Won't back down, we won't give in!

A fistful of revolution!
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
A fistful of revolution!
(Our fight, we won't back down, no!)
A fistful of revolution!
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
A fistful of revolution!
(You're falling down,
You're falling down.)
A fistful of revolution!
A fistful of revolution!
A fistful of revolution!
A fistful of revolution!

    General Commentfist = international sign of demanding a liberation socially, politcally, economically, etc.

    "I've seen a rising statue
    Next to a crumbling building
    And a city scapes call to arms. "

    rising statues are when notable political figures have their stautes made and raised. the statue next to a crumbling building means the crumbling building symbolizes the crumbling state of a nation's well-being and wellfare. that the nation is in shambles and the stature (the leader) may be the cause. A city scape calls to arms, means that the people are not happy with the status quo and that a revolution to overtake an incompetant or unjust leader is neccessary.

    showing our numbers = protest rally!!!!!!

    a fistful of revolution= a brick! they're going to smash the state!

    pretty simple song. the meaning is generic, but it expresses a strong feeling with such few words. if you want to hear more political and verbal lyrics, check out anti-flag, chris barker (vocals of whatever it takes) is also the bassist for anti-flag. rock on!
