We Apologise For Nothing

Fightstar‘s new single, We Apologise For Nothing, is the perfect soundtrack for a post about the 7 of Wands.
From the website:
‘Talking about the title track, singer Charlie Simpson said “this song is about standing up for what you believe in without compromise. Whether it be in public protest or behind closed doors the best way to achieve your goals is to stand up and relentlessly fight for them”.’
The guy in the 7 of Wands is standing firm against opposition. It’s an image of true grit, determination and integrity. He’s on higher ground than everyone else, because he believes absolutely in what he’s doing. He makes it look so easy. In reality, not caving in to peer pressure on a daily basis is an impossible task – most of us choose the path of least resistance for an easy life. So I’m guessing there’s an element of “choose your battles” in this card. Fight for those things that really matter to you but don’t sweat the small stuff.
P.S. Fightstar are cool.
