"Crawl" as written by and Darrell Lance/abbott Abbott....
Forged my strength out of determination
I've survived this long on will
Dropped so many times that I've lost count
Never stopped me once, never known anything else

Try and break me down I'll
Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't

Suffer, sacrifice, or walk away
Make your play and risk it all
New found power pumping through my veins
Based on brotherhood
Once it starts it can't be stopped

Try and break me down I'll
Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't
Pick my teeth back up and crawl

Sometimes it seemed like it just wasn't meant to be
Anger and sorrow were all that I would ever feel
Sometimes I'd dream the man that had it all was me
Then I'd awake each time to cold reality

But I can't wait for things to change
Complacency is not my way

Self-absorbed, I had lost my faith I was
Breaking down from your apathy, now it
Feeds my hatred for all you stand for and
I can't live like this one minute more, so
Just how much blood do you have to swallow?
Before can you lead, you must refuse to follow

Now I bite the hand that starves me
Don't look so surprised it's you that created me

Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't
Pick my teeth back up and
Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't

    General CommentAh, another worthy song. Pretty straightforward lyrically, though, but pretty badass. It describes a person who "won't take stock in a withered man". It basically says come and try to knock me down, I'll just brush it off.

    General CommentThis a kickass song, they should have used this song instead of Breathing New Life or Explode. Those songs suck. This one is leaps and bounds over them. And for the meaning, I agree with Lateralus.
