Transcript of Fight Song

Sound Devices
There is no onomatopoeia in this song, but there are parts that suggest noise such as:

"But I can make an explosion"

The song tells us that we need to stop letting others and ourselves tear us down, follow your dreams, and believe in yourself.
Speaker Description
The speaker is going out on their own into the world to fulfill their dreams despite the odds.
Figurative Language
"Wrecking balls inside my brain" - Metaphor that is comparing things she wants to say to wrecking balls.

"Fire burning in my bones" - Metaphor that is comparing the speaker's determination to fire burning in her bones.

The speaker is speaking with determination and assertion, because she's describing how she's done being pushed around by life and is going to take control of her situation.
These lyrics show the imagery
in the song very well. You can easily imagine what is being described here:
Fight Song
By: Rachel Platten

Universal Theme

Rhyme Scheme
Why Did We Choose THIS Song?
Karlina recommended the song, and the entire group fell in love with it! We also believed that it had a great message to share with it's audience, and many people
could relate to it.

Greatest Device/Element Effect
"This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me"

The rhyme scheme for the first two stanzas is:
There is no particular rhyme scheme, however there are some stanzas that rhyme:

"Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
Everybody's worried about me
In too deep"

"And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time"

The speaker repeats this to emphasize the fact that she will speak up for herself after remaining silent.
"I've still got a lot of fight left in me"

These lyrics are repeated the most throughout the entire song. The speaker will NOT give up, as the determination in her will not let up.
Figurative Language
Metaphors show indirectly how the speaker feels about herself and how she disagrees with others who think she cannot make it.
The figurative language in the song really affects the audience, and many can relate, therefore being the greatest affect.
"Like how a single word can make a heart open"
