"I Dreamed I Died" as written by and Bradley James/pitts Fafara....
- Destroy all or nothing - - I dreamed I died, ended up at the gates of Heaven - Greeted by a man Saint someone, said how's the
ride son? - It's been alright, at times a little rough, why am I here? - You did alright, lived a little dark and that's alright
- 'Cause we made the darkside and the rightside is to have no fear, no fear - - My whole life flashed in front of me - I saw
everything that I was and what I had done - Even let me look back on some good times for a little fun - Yes, a little fun - And
then I heard damn boy you done good - Did the every little thing that you could - And then I heard damn boy you done good - Damn
good - - When you hear the call, bury them all - Destroy all or nothing - When I hear the call, I will bury them all - I will
destroy all or nothing - When the sky opened up and the clouds parted clear - There wasn't any doubt to why I was here - And I
knew I'd done a good job, the best job that I could do - So now it was time to move on, to get on, to get back - To the question
of why I was here and what I had learned, no fear - My whole life flashed in front of me - I saw everything that I was and what I
had done - Even let me look back on some good times for a little fun - Yes, a little fun - And then I heard damn boy you done
good - Did every little thing that you could - And then I heard damn boy you done good - Damn good - When you hear the call, bury
them all - Destroy all or nothing - When I hear the call, I will bury them all - I will destroy all or nothing - - My whole life
flashed in front of my eyes - Goddamn, wake up, bad dream, bad dream - When you hear the call, bury them all - Destroy all or
nothing - When I hear the call, I will bury them all - I will destroy all or nothing

    General CommentDez, interview for metalupdate.com:

    "I woke up about three-thirty in the morning, man, had a fucking dream, and I was sweating like a motherfucker. And [my wife] Anastasia, she was like "What's going on?" I went out in my living room and wrote it. It was like a dream that I died, but I still, I wasn't ready to go, I was like, "I've got so much more to do." It was at that point that the fears and everything came into what was going on."

    General CommentYeah, his voice is well suited to heavy metal.

    This song is so cool, it is my second favorite, after "Die (and die now)".

    General CommentJust from reading it, my idea of the message is you gotta do the best you can with life. Relating that to "go big or go home" instead "Destroy all or nothing".
    "then I heard damn boy you done good
    Did the every little thing that you could" Going back to doing the best you can at everything in life.

    I also was thinking that in the song he talks about dieing and going to heaven and god would be the logically correct person who could be saying good job, which would make me think he is conveying the message of do your best at life and you go to heaven, just a thought.
