Your hands upon
A deadman's gun and you're
Looking down the sights
Your heart is worn,
And the seams are torn
And they've given you reason to fight

And you're not gonna take what they've got to give
And you not gonna let them take your will to live
Because they've taken enough and you've given them all you can give
And luck won't save them tonight
They've given you reason to fight

And all the storms you've been chasing
About to rain down tonight
And all the pain you've been facin'
About to comin' to the light

Your hands upon
A deadman's gun and you're looking down the sights
Your heart is worn,
And the seams are torn
And they've given you reason to fight.

And you're not gonna take what they've got to give
And you not gonna let them take your will to live
Because they've taken enough and you've given them all you can give
And luck won't save them tonight
They've given you reason to fight

And all the storms you've been chasing
About to rain down tonight
And all the pain you've been facin'
About to comin' to the light

    Means pride
    Means bravery
    Means fight for liberty and peace
    Means unleash the warrior soul within us to glance up and live with honor

    Means, we shouldn't bear people to pee on our heads, we should fight for life, for dreams, and for respect iinstead

    This song made me cry the first time i heard it. I think that it's about john maraton, not jack, which is what most people think. Throuout the entire game, your in pain, and chasing storms, and not taking crap from the government even though they pile it on. And, at the end you realize that you were looking down the sights of a deadman's gun. You just didn't know it.

    Fighting for the ones you love, and, though you know the chances of survival are slim, you fight to the death, taking as many with you to the afterlife.

    I think this song is amazing first off. Seocond off. I think this song is about standing up for what you believe in. But it also is a sort of homage to jack and john. I don't know about you but when i went to gun you know who as the lesser of the marstons there was a fierce storm going on. So the song practically matched up word for word.
