expl.: although he was at times an enormous asshole i like Bukowski. you just gotta love his "no bullshit"-attitude. an attitude that´s constantly reflected in his work. with his poem "regardless", which basically makes up the lyrics of this song, he pretty much nails it: sometimes you´re at your best with your back against the wall. because when you´ve got nothing left to lose you can only surpass yourself.


you fight best on a night like this, every weapon pointed at you, all the voices hurl their insults, while you crawl through teeth and excrement
your dream is being strangled, you fight best on a night like this when reason`s kicked in the gut, when the chariots of gloom encircle you, you fight best on a night like this when their laughter smears the air, when the kiss of death is mistaken for love, you fight best on a night like this when the game is fixed and the crowd screams for your blood, you fight best on a night like this when you rise up against the impossible and move on regardless.
