It's from Megadeth's song : "They talk of days like this, sentencing their children, when they need to eat a fist."

What does "to eat a fist" mean?


It's a metaphor that means what it sounds like. If someone is metaphorically chewing on someone else's fist, it means they've been punched in the face.

However I don't think this is a particularly common (or elegant) expression, at least not in the US. A more common (although somewhat hackneyed) expression is knuckle sandwich.
