"Blood Brothers" as written by Tobin Esperance, Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton and David Buckner....
Watch your back because the next man is coming
And you don't know if the next man is dumbin'
Survival of the fittest what it is
I got your back, you got my back, and that's the biz
Blood is rushing through my veins, I got the power
Channel the energy and with my strength I will devour
Sickenin thoughts is runnin' through my head
That's when I realized I'm glad I'm not dead

Corruption and it grows
The salesman of our blood
For the public's craving
Existence in the dark

It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
It's in our nature to kill ourselves
It's in our nature to kill each other
It's out nature to kill, kill, kill

It was a dream and then it hit me
Reality struck, and now my life is all shifty
And it all moves, close to a buck 50
We all stand strong in respect to the family
In times of insanity
And through words of profanity
I describe our dysfunctional family
Blood brothers keep it real to the end
Deeper than the thoughts you think, not a trend

Corruption and it grows
The salesman of our blood
For the public's craving
Existence in the dark

It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
It's in our nature to kill ourselves
It's in our nature to kill each other
It's out nature to kill, kill, kill

It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
It's in our nature to kill ourselves
It's in our nature to kill each other
It's out nature to kill, kill, kill

Again and again

Corruption and it grows
The salesman of our blood
For the public's craving
Existence in the dark

(Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill,)

    General Commentummm ok guys i just have to correct this whole song ...... who ever put the lyrics obviously hasnt listened to the song that often sooo yea heres the real lyrics guys .... they make more sense in alot of parts cuz he put wrong words and sentences every wherreeeeeeeeee

    Watch your back because the next man is comin'
    And you don't know if the next man is dumbin'
    Survival of the fittest what it is
    I got yo back, you got my back, and that's the biz
    Blood is rushing through my veins, I got the power
    Channel the energy, and with my strength I will devour
    Sickening thoughts are running through my head
    Thats when I realize I'm glad im not dead

    Corruption and abuse, the salesman of our blood
    For the public's craving, existence in the dark

    It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill each other
    It's in our nature to kill, kill, kill

    It was a dream and then it hit me, reality struck
    And now my life is all shifty and it all moves fast
    Close to the buck 50, and we all stand strong
    In respect to the family in the times of our insanity
    And in the words of profanity, I describe our dysfunctional family
    Blood brothers keep it real to the end, deeper than the thoughts that you think?
    Not a trend!

    Corruption and abuse, the salesman of our blood
    For the public's craving, existence in the dark

    It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill each other
    It's in our nature to kill, kill, kill

    Again and again ...

    Corruption and abuse, the salesman of our blood
    For the public's craving, existence in the dark

    It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill each other
    It's in our nature to KILL, KILL, KILL!!!!

    It's in our nature to destroy ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill ourselves
    It's in our nature to kill each other
    It's in our nature to kill ...

    General CommentTo understand the meaning of this song you must look at it backwards, the fact of the matter is this song is all about the rejection of society and the hardships to accel through life.

    General CommentYou know what...

    The lyrics HERE say that he says... "For, Police Strengthen"

    When Coby acually says "For, The Publics Craving"

    The Song is About... As The Lead Singer Coby Dick states...

    "I'll put a disclaimer on this song: Don't be a weak-minded bitch - just because I say "Kill, kill, kill" doesn't mean you should do that! If anyone thinks this is about The Bloods or The Crips, they're stupid - it's not. The chorus is reflecting on people who don't stay tight, people who turn on each other. As a band, especially, we need to stay tight because there are a lot of people who are out to get you, to take advantage of you and exploit you. I need to stay free from corruption of the music industry. I feel my music is part of my body and that some people involved in it are "the salesmen of my blood." This is a reminder to myself to be a good person because I'm not really a good person all the time"

    General Commenti think the song is about being happy in life (i'm glad i'm not dead), but i also think it is about death (its in our nature to kill ourselves its in our nature to destroy each other) it means we all kill each other and we kill ourselves.
