Gym Class Heroes – The Fighter lyrics

Yeah!

Just waking up in the morning
And to be well,
Quite honest with ya,
I ain't really sleep well
Ya ever feel like your train of thought's been derailed?
That's when you press on - Lee nails
Half the population's just waitin to see me fail
Yeah right, you're better off trying to freeze hell
Some of us do it for the females
And others do it for the retail

But I do it for the kids, life threw the towel in on
Everytime you fall it's only making your chin strong
And I'll be in your corner like mick, baby, til the end
Or when you hear a song from that big lady

Until the referee rings the bell
Until both your eyes start to swell
Until the crowd goes home
What we gonna do ya'll?

Give em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life til we're dead.
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say of me, say of me, say of me
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
Here comes the fighter
That's what they'll say of me, say of me, say of me,
This one's a fighter

And if I can last thirty rounds
There's no reason you should ever have your head down
Six foot five, two hundred and twenty pounds
Hailing from rock bottom, loserville, nothing town

Text book version of a kid going nowhere fast
And now I'm yelling "kiss my ass"
It's gonna take a couple right hooks, a few left jabs
For you to recognize you really ain't got it bad

Until the referee rings the bell
Until both your eyes start to swell
Until the crowd goes home
What we gonna do ya'll?

Give em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life til we're dead.
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say of me, say of me, say of me
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
Here comes the fighter
That's what they'll say of me, say of me, say of me,
This one's a fighter

Everybody put yo hands up
What we gonna do ya'll?

If you fall pick yourself up off the floor (get up)
And when your bones can't take no more (c'mon)
Just remember what you're here for
Cuz I know Imma damn sure

Give em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life til we're dead.
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say of me, say of me, say of me
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
Here comes the fighter
That's what they'll say of me, say of me, say of me,
This one's a fighter

'Til the referee rings the bell
'Til both ya eyes start to swell
'Til the crowd goes home,
What we gonna do kid?

    The fighter, this song is about the people who go unrecognized and are told that they wont accomplish anything in their lives but even after being told to give up and stop trying they keep on going and are stronger because of it. These people are strong minded and are often the ones who accomplish the most because they have to take the long road to get to where they want to be. This song is so inspirational, I love it!

    Just keep on fighting until the end! Prove to everyone that you are not someone to ignore, that you're not just gum beneath someone's shoe, that you're important. Also, just live life, and keep living it the way it was meant to, instead of hiding behind money, behind other people's backs. They may take some of the pain for you, but you should learn the meaning of life by yourself, and help take some of their pain. I might've started out as nothing, a 'text book version of the kid going nowhere fast', but now, see, I'm something. Something to be scared of, something to look at. And when you keep fighting, you realize that you're actually good at something, and then there's hope. And when someone pushes you down, you just stand right up, because you don't belong on the floor. You belong up there, standing. And when you have no motivation, 'just remember waht you're here for' fight for something.

    I started a small business that is purely unique to the industry of tutoring. I started with $5000 credit line to start it, and, after 2 years, I have decided to expand it in 3 states. I go against conventional wisdom, am a fighter for my dreams, and I walk by faith and not by sight. Not always acceptable in a politically correct world. The fighter means fight on, don't give up, until the referee (god) rings the bell and tells me to do something else. The fighter is about having a vision and not letting anything or anybody stand in your way!

    I think this song means strength. That when you fall down get back up. Be strong fight for everything you have with everything you got. When it says "what are we gonna do kid? " I feel like it is intreprating kids feelings. Kids are innocent it's until parents or their environment whiter it's good or bad. That's what shapes you your personality. Kids don't see color like "race" kids can be smarter than adults they have more power.

    I think this song is about life, how we are in constant struggle with why we do what we do, what motivates us and when that choice turns out to be a not so great one how we deal with it. You need to do what you have to; to get through it so do it hard, tough but do it and be proud because you lived through it. Strength.
