Icon For Hire – Fight lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't know how I got here but I refuse to stay.
I betrayed myself when I let others have their way
But I am holding on, my finger on the pulse.
The sound of my heart pounding tells me there's still hope.

But people don't like when you put up a fight.
And slowly, ever so slowly, I am loosing mine.

[Chorus]
I'll fight, fight, fight or be taken out alive. Fight.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
Standing on the edge, am I better off dead?
How could I forget that I'm better than this?
I've come too far to fade tonight.
Fight, or be taken out alive.

[Verse 2]
My thoughts are racing faster than my body can react.
The danger doesn't register, the fear feels like an act.
Don't pull the plug, I swear this isn't how I want to go.
The sound of my heart pounding tells me there's still hope.

But people don't like when you put up a fight.
And slowly, ever so slowly, I am loosing mine
.

[Chorus]
I'll fight, fight, fight or be taken out alive. Fight.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
Standing on the edge, am I better off dead?
How could I forget that I'm better than this?
I've come too far to fade tonight.
Fight, or be taken out alive.

(Whisper)
I've survived on life support,
But I'm stronger than I give mysellf credit for
.
These conditions only cure
When we prepare ourselves for war.

(Louder)
I've survived on life support,
But I'm stronger than I give mysellf credit for
.
These conditions only cure
When we prepare ourselves for war.

[Chorus]
I'll fight, fight, fight or be taken out alive. Fight.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
Standing on the edge, am I better off dead?
How could I forget that I'm better than this?
I've come too far to fade tonight.
Fight, or be taken out alive.

    I think that the song is about not giving up because you are alive and you can fight, and also to not underestimate how strong you are; physically and mentally. It is also about not giving up hope and fighting until the end.
    In the chorus, she sings the words which shows that she thinks that death may have been an easier option. But, she also sings "I've come too far to fade tonight" which means that she knows she has come too far to give up.
    The words in the chorus show that she does not have anywhere to go or to hide, but she is going to keep fighting.
    Also, the words "fight, or be taken out alive" mean that she will fight until she wins whatever she is fighting or is killed by whatever she is fighting.
