I, I, I, will battle for the sun, sun, sun
And I, I, I won't stop until I'm done, done, done
You, you, you are getting in the way, way, way
And I, I, I have nothing left to say, say, say

I, I, I, I, I will brush off all the dirt dirt dirt dirt dirt dirt dirt
And I, I, I, I, I will pretend it didn't hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt
You, you, you, you, you are a black and heavy weight,
Weight, weight, weight, weight, weight, weight
And I, I, I, I, I will not participate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate

Dream brother, my killer, my lover
Dream brother, my killer, my lover

I, I, I will battle for the sun, sun, sun, sun
'Cause I I I have stared down the barrel of a gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, gun
No falling
You you you you you are a cheap and nasty fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
And I, I, I, I, I, am the bones you couldn't break
Break, break, break, break, break, break, break

Dream brother, my killer, my lover
Dream brother, my killer, my lover

Dream brother, my killer, my lover
Dream brother, my killer, my lover

Dream brother, my killer, my lover
Dream brother, my killer, my lover

I, I, I will battle for the sun

    My Interpretation'I will battle for the sun' is a great line.

    It tells us that the protagonist knows what's right and good in this world and he will try everything to reach it.

    But like in every story, there's a villain too.

    An antagonist who tries to hold the protagonist back from reaching what he's set out to do.

    That antagonist is fighting the protagonist, mentally or physically. Probably more mental torture because how the antagonist tried to win over the protagonist for his evil deeds was the turning point for the protagonist.

    'Cause I have stared down the barrel of a gun' shows in what deep shit the protagonist found himself in just because of doing the things he knew were wrong.

    'I will brush off all the dirt' as well as 'I am the bones you could not break' shows how resistant the protagonist is. He's not going to be led astray again.

    He has experienced what's wrong in this world and he chooses the light, not the darkness. He has seen behind the facade of the antagonist, seeing him as someone who's a fake because they were not true to their words.

    The words: 'Dream brother. My killer. My lover' reveals the deep relationship those two persons had with each other. They were very close, but one is on a downhill path into darkness, and the protagonist won't follow. That's what makes them foes.
