WHITE STRIPES


Seven Nation Army Lyrics

I'm gonna fight 'em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back

And I'm talking to myself at night
Because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette

And the message coming from my eyes
Says leave it alone

Don't want to hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell

And if I catch it coming back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do

And the feeling coming from my bones
Says find a home

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore

And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the Lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more

The inspiration behind the name 'Seven Nation Army' came from Jack, when as a kid, he used t called the Salvation Army the Seven Nation Army. The actual song refers to his past or something like that.

This song is talking about a secret society most likely illuminati and how people in power know about it. the musician is trying to fight against it all in all its a great song cant get enough of it.

No if you really want to get technical its about the struggle of power and no one has the sack to stand up and fight for what is right

It is obviously about Godzilla's last attack on Tokyo and how the Rofling Copters got stuck in my tree house.
