Jon Bon Jovi sings on this chest-out-anthem about starting every day "with my back against the wall." As the song proceeds he describes a metaphorical fight, which ends with the knockout of the opponent.
Here comes the knockout, My time is right now, Turning your lights out, I'm throwing down.
"The song is about the fight with one's own hope", said the singer. "It's about that fighting spirit that we all feel – in so many situations."
