Let the night come, before the fight's won
Some might run against the test
Yeah those that triumph embrace the fight cos
The fear is there to prove that courage exists
It’s a statement about people afraid to take the challenge. Macklemore took that test and tried to succeed in the rap game. His example shows us that it’s possible. It may be still hard to become big, but he showed he can make it and he wants to encourage others.
There is no courage without fear and you can’t back down, or the fear wins the fight, and you lose.
