While many of the songs on Still Fighting The War‚ focus on struggle and pain, the album, as a whole, is far from morose. Much like Hank Williams or Woody Guthrie, Slaid juxtaposes tales of working class woes (Rust Belt Fields, Welding Burns) with lighthearted wittiness and tongue-in-cheek humor (Whim of Iron, Texas Love Song), adding a sense of optimism and resilience that turns sad stories into a source of inspiration instead of despair.
