"Breathing New Life" as written by and Darrell Lance/abbott Abbott....
Can you feel it building
Devastation is on the way
Feel the hair on the back of your neck
As the rush begins

You can't take it away
I earned this with sweat and blood
You can't take it away
Take what's mine

Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be

Can you feel it slipping
As you lose your grip on me
Can you face that I won in the end
I can't keep from laughing

You can't take it away
I earned this with sweat and blood
You can't take it away
Take what's mine

Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be
Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be

Don't you see it coming
When you've caught on, it's too late
When it hits, don't forget who I am
Don't forget this face

You can't take it away
I earned this with sweat and blood
You can't take it away
Take what's mine

Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be
Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be

    General CommentI wish Damageplan could continue, but...fuck, ya know? It's just one of those things you can't go back on. Dime was such a driving force, there's no goin back. It just fuckin sucks

    General Commentisnt this ironic that dimebag died while performing this song "Breathing New Life"
    its about breathing new life obviously, but then dimebag dies....
    this is such a horrific tragedy.
    dimebag darell was one og the best guitarists of all time, hands down.
    and he will not be forgotten.
    RIP

    General Commenti always thought that if dime didnt die, this band would've gone so far. they really would have, too, they would have been fucking metal.

    "You can't take it away
    I earned this with sweat and blood
    You can't take it away
    Take what's mine

    Breathing new life back into me
    Challenging all the powers that be
    Breathing new life back into me
    Challenging all the powers that be

    Don't you see it coming
    When you've caught on, it's too late
    When it hits, don't forget who I am
    Don't forget this face"

    Aill of that is way too ironic when you read it and sit there and think about it, especially the parts i have in quotes

    and he won't be forgotten he was THE Guitar God.
    I miss Pantera and Damageplan...
