Fight Like a Brave
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


All you slingers and fiends hide behind your rocks
Put down your guard I'm not here to box
This is no showdown so throw down your guns
You see it doesn't matter where you come from
You could be from park ave or from a park bench
You could be a politician or a bitchy princess
But if you're lookin' for a fist and you're lookin' to unite
Put your knuckleheads together make a fist and fight
Not to your death and not to your grave
I'm talking about t hat freedom fight like a brave

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

If you're sick-a-sick'n'tired of being sick and tired
If you're sick of all the bullshit and you're sick of all the lies
It's better late than never to set-a-set it straight
You know the lie is dead so give your self a break
Get it through your head get if off your chest
Get it out your arm because it's time to start fresh
You want to stop dying the life you could be livin'
I'm here to tell a story but I'm also here to listen
No I'm not your preacher and I'm not your physician
I'm just trying to reach you I'm a rebel with a mission

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

I'm here today to pump up the uplift mofo party plan
A plan based on a band, a band based on a plan
There should be no in the land of lands
It's a Hollywood jam

You say you're running and you're running and you're running afraid
You say you ran across the planet but you couldn't get away
The fire in your brain was driving you insane
You were looking for a day in a life that never came
So don't tell me that I've got to take a number
'Cause I've been to that doctor and believe me that's a bummer
Here's a one of a kind convention of the mind
And don't forget to mention that it doesn't cost a dime
Come as you like and leave any time
And one more thing you know it doesn't have to rhyme

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

Fight like a brave
Don't be a slave
No one can tell you
You've got to be afraid

It's criminal how many great tunes like this RHCP have but never play live.

@A.J. Meyer Highlyl agree. Though I will say I love the song Scar Tissue, and Other Side's pretty good too. But I think Scar Tissue is their only post BSSM song that matches up to their earlier shit. They really lost their groove though.

@Skunginoggin345 Yeah, it's actually kinda hard to find a show without it. I would appreciate a bit more of their older stuff, though.

@Bee Kay 5150 Me and My Friends has been a staple in their live show. They play it quite often.

If you want my 2 cents worth, all their stuff after BSSM has been worthless. The last time I saw them live was in 2002 and they didn’t play any of their material pre-BSSM. Haven’t been interested in the band since, but every now and then I go back to listening to their first 5 albums.

Paulo S

specifically this one, has a high "rebel" political content. I imagine that "external pressures" prevent them from playing this song again... I'm quite sure about it.
Meantime, great great tune 🎵🎵

REST IN PEACE HILLEL. WELCOME HOME JOHN FRUSCIANTE!!!

My unpopular opinion is they were never quite as good after Hillel Slovak died... Those first 3 albums are magical - still to this day

Red Hot Chili Peppers's most catchy song of the 80's
