Emilie Autumn – Fight Like A Girl (F.L.A.G) Lyrics

 My favourite singer is relatively unheard of. Over the last few years she has developed a dedicated ‘cult’ following, but anyone who is not privy to the world of Emilie Autumn, has never heard of her. I first encountered her through a friend about six years ago now, and since then I have grown to love her music more and more!

The reason I love EA so much is because of the meaning she puts into her lyrics. Her newest song, ‘Fight Like A Girl’, is about the uprising of women against the suppression they faced at the hands of men throughout history. I particularly like the line, ‘if we’ve got no honour, then we’ve got no shame,’ as it highlights how, in the past, men had the ability to take away everything, including women’s honour, and EA cleverly points out that a lack of honour must therefore, be countered by a lack of shame, as you cannot have one without the other.

For anyone who hasn’t encountered Emilie Autumn before, I hope you like the lyrics as much as I do, and the song is available to listen to on Youtube here if you are interested =) Enjoy!

Fight Like A Girl Lyrics

My heart is a weapon of war
My voice is my weapon of choice
An eye for an eye
A heart for a heart
A soul for a soul
We fight for the dream
We fight to the death
We fight for control

But there is no such thing as justice
All the best that we can hope for is revenge
A hostile takeover
An absolute rebellion to the end
This is our battle cry
I’m giving you a head start
You’re going to need it

‘Cause I fight like a girl
I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand
‘Cause I fight like a girl
I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand
‘Cause I fight like a girl

We are under attack
What is the body count?
I’ve lost track
If nobody’s mentioned how this will end
Then I’ll be the first
There are more of us than there are of you
So show me your worst

But there is no such thing as justice
All the best that we can hope for is revenge
A hostile takeover
An absolute rebellion to the end
This is our battle cry
I’m giving you a head start
You’re going to need it

‘Cause I fight like a girl
I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand
‘Cause I fight like a girl
I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand
‘Cause I fight like a girl

It’s so easy to kill
This I learned from watching you
If I have to I will
It’s not pretty but it’s true
I am through lying still
Just a body to be beaten, fucked
And if I’m lucky, left for dead
So who’s scary now?

No mercy, it’s a bit too late
The game is on
Don’t run, don’t hide, don’t wait
‘Cause if we’ve got no honour
Then we’ve got no shame
If it’s in self defense
Then we will take no blame

This is our battle cry
Even if you´re only a boy
You can fight like a girl

I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand

I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand

I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand
‘Cause I fight like a girl

I’ll get my revenge on the world
Or at least forty-nine percent of the people in it
And if I end up with blood on my hands
Well I know that you’ll understand
‘Cause I fight like a girl

    I absolutely adore EA, and the new album exceeds expectations beautifully- and I do love ‘Fight Like a Girl’, although my most favourite is steadily becoming ‘Time for Tea’ 🙂

    • Hannah Ackroyd says:

      I agree! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the new album but I am in love with it! I like ‘Time for Tea’ too, but it seems to be ‘Take the Pill’ that I can’t get out of my head at the moment!
