lemon to a knife fight

I’m currently obsessed with this song!

According to songfacts.com:

The lyrics detail someone fighting a losing battle.
Frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy told Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1 the song came after a huge argument on Mulholland Drive with his wife.

“I was watching kind of a lot of David Lynch, and my wife and I were driving on Mulholland and we had this big kind of raging argument (…) Arguing with [his wife] is similar to kind of arguing with a dragon, like a Game of Thrones-style dragon: you just open your mouth but before you know it, you’re like burned to a cinder. So yeah, the title I guess is a metaphor for going into a situation that I knew 100% I was going to lose but I went into it anyway.”

This is Lemon to a Knife Fight by The Wombats
Please listen responsibly.

According to songfacts.com:

The song’s music video was directed by Finn Keenan (The Strypes’ “She’s So Fine”, The Wombats’ “Greek Tragedy”). He described the clip as “David Lynch meets Power Rangers.”
Keean added: “I wanted to make something that started off dark, surreal and a little bit disturbing but then flip it on its head with a big ol’ twist that led to a ludicrous ending.”

I didn’t like the vid at all, I get it conceptually, but for me it has absolutely nothing to do with the song…but I’m neither the artists nor the director.
Here is is in case you want to watch it:
