AT LONG LAST! The first song unmixed from my album! Man it feels like forever, right? I’ve been stressing out hardxcore this week and decided WHAT THE HEY! This one is called “Fight Song” and to paraphrase myself from my first show ever, “This one’s about how all of your friends are pregnant.”
"Fight Song" by Christopher Butcher Here it is the sum of all fears That we never ever did get away from here We’re still kicking it back after all these years But we can soften the blow with a couple of beers at the bar We can hang & just shoot the shit About who’s on drugs and who got pregnant About who’s divorces and who finally left & How they’ll be back here in a year or less & I know
I don’t think I’m cut out for this town maybe this town isn’t cut out for me But if you’re not going to be here tomorrow that’s just one more reason to leave.
Each of us made a plan to get out Of our dead end jobs & this nowhere town But we all got lost & never were found Talking about glory days before we were down & out If I ever manage to escape to a not-entirely similar place I’ll tell you all about how I got it made When we meet back here at the end of the day & I know
I don’t think I’m cut out for this town maybe this town isn’t cut out for me But if you’re not going to be here tomorrow that’s just one more reason to leave But if you’re here then I guess we’ll see…
In the shadow of our past selves we gather here and stay Maybe we’re over-nostalgic or maybe we’re afraid. Leaving home it’s such a burden Making friends, saying goodbye to old So Hail to thee my Alma Mater To hell with you my home.
