I've given all that I have to give
Taking all of the lives that I can.
Will this be my last?
(There's no end in sight)
When will all of my brothers know,

I'll fight this war alone
If that's what it takes to get home to you.
I'll fight this war alone.

I've lost control again
And the night is closing in.
How do I keep my feet on the floor,
When I'm in over my head?
How can I fight a war?
Cause I have you, to come home to.

Take a step back and finally think for yourself,
You're living a life full of lying.
I'm over this process
Of letting my life be run by your desire.

I'll fight this war alone
If that's what it takes to come home to you
I'll fight this war alone

I've lost control again
And the night is closing in.
I've gotta be whole within
So my life is mine again.

How do I keep my feet on the floor,
When I'm in over my head?
How can I fight a war?
'Cause I have you, to come home to.
'Cause I have you, to come home to.
'Cause I have you, to come home to.

I'm never gonna give up hope.
I'm never gonna give up hope.
I'm never gonna give up hope.
I'll never give up until I'm dead.
And if you wan't me to you'll have to take my life.

I'll fight this war alone (x4)

    I believe that the song meaning was about doing what you have to ensure that whomever you love will be safe, even if it means doing something that you hate. For example, a lot of parents hate ther jobs but they stay with them to support their family. Another example is people going off to war. Nobody honestly wants to kill people, but if it means that whomever they love will be safe and happy, they will kill.
    This is one of my fave songs and it is beautifully written

    It means everything to me. My favorite part is;

    "i've lost control again
    and the night is closing in. How do i keep my feet on the floor,
    when i'm in over my head? How can i fight a war? Cause i have you, to come home to. "

    Wetzel (attack attack! 's drummer) explained the whole concept behind this song on their forum spring. Basically what he said was it's about how touring in a band takes time away from the ones you love, and also how some people can hate you for doing something you like. This is somewhat similar to going to war, how it takes time away from loved ones, the reasons why you fight, and how people can hate you for it. Hence the whole "war" theme to the album.

    What the last guys said is completely wrong. Its very literal, he doesnt want to fight because he has people back home to look forward to seeing again, but he cant just leave.
