"Won't Back Down" as written by and Carl William Bell....
Yeah
I know what darkness means (and the point to run from me)
The isolation stings (so thick it wants to bleed)
The echoes in my brain (all the things you said to me)
You took my everything (now I'm coming for you)

[Chorus]
I won't back down
I will not bow
(I've come to bring you hell)
And I can't forget
The things you did
(I've come to bring you hell)

The shadows that you see (in the places that you sleep)
Are memories of me (you better pray your soul too keep)
The truth behind your eyes (you know the things you never see)
Your darkest little lies (I'm coming for you)

[Chorus]

Of all the scars that never heal
Of all the wounds that will not seal
I will not forget the day
These memories never fall, yeah

[Chorus]

I've come to bring you hell (I've come to bring you hell)
I've come to bring you hell (I've come to bring you hell)
I've come to bring you hell (I've come to bring you hell)
I've come to bring you hell (I've come to bring you hell)

    General Commentthis song is really awesome! i think it has to do with someone whos been hurt in the past by either a boyfriend/girlfriend, family memeber, or friend. theyre holding a grudge and now theyre going to get revenge (ahh so sweet..) on that person by doing what they did them, but even worse.

    General CommentThis song is from the Daredevil soundtrack, and thus, it pretty much parallels the themes behind the movie. It's awesome; the video is even better. If you've never seen these guys live, you should really get to their next tour. Best live show on the scene.

    General CommentIt is from the movie Daredevil and the meaning is that when Daredevil lost his father he is trying to seek revenge of who killed his father and it is a brillant song.

    General CommentMy view on the song it's about a person with their mind so set on one thing,"i won't back down, i will not bow,i've come to bring you hell,i can't forget the things you did,i've come yo bring you hell"
    revenge has consumed them,and the outcome is basically them doing what they feel is right

    General CommentThis song has a real "industrial" sound to it. The verses are really dark and kinda creepy, but yet they are soft and uneasy. This song is just about not backing down to anyone no matter how much they talk shit to you or hate you. This one is also about doing the "ignoring" or "disappearing" game on someone who mistreated you somehow. I LOVE the line "the shadows that you, are memories of me"...too cool too cool!
