Song Description

The song is a boxing analogy for a bad relationship. I raised the white flag of surrender and yet the other person kept on. It was as if they wanted me to hit them. (of course, I never did) ;)

Lyrics

Every day's a new fight, 1 more fat lip, 2 more black eyes
And this boxer wants to throw the towel right in
Every round's at least 3 minutes, dancing all around arguments
You can have the last word, you can win

Until the war is done, I'm gonna bite my tongue
I'm gonna hold my breath and leave it to you
But you've got your war paint on, while I've got my white flag hung
It seems like it's all you want, for me to beat into you

Every day's a new backstabbing, temper-tantrum not worth having
You don't have to pout cause I'll give in
With every poke and kick you're shoving, you keep trying to push my buttons
I'm not gonna take that bait again

Until the war is done, I'm gonna bite my tongue
I'm gonna hold my breath and leave it to you
But you've got your war paint on, while I've got my white flag hung
It seems like it's all you want, for me to beat into you

But I'm tired and just uninspired from seeing that look on your face
You'd make a truce for a while then march single file
But I'm gonna stay here in place

Until the war is done, I'm gonna bite my tongue
I'm gonna hold my breath and leave it to you
But you've got your war paint on, while I've got my white flag hung
Seems like it's all you want, for me to beat into you
But you've got your war paint on, while I've got my white flag hung
Seems like it's all you want, for me to beat into you
Seems like it's all you want, for me to beat into you
Seems like it's all you want, for me to beat into you
