"Do or Die" as written by and Gerald Tuso....
Today I saw my hero fall apart
The one who taught me to be strong
On the outside I look fine
But on the inside I am dying

My strength is overcome by pain
My love for you remains the same
The loneliness is setting in
I have no one to free my sins

It's never too late
To live your life
The time is now
It's do or die

[Chorus]
It's never too late
To live your life
The time is now
It's yours and mine

Now it's my time to help you out
Cause you were there when I was down
It's hard for me to see you this way
Losing all your sanity

You helped me keep my dreams alive
Without you how will I survive
It's time for me to be a man
Now I finally understand

It's never too late
To live your life
The time is now
It's do or die

[Chorus: x2]

Not gonna run anymore [Repeat: x3]

Today I saw my hero fall apart
The one who taught me to be strong
On the outside I look fine
But on the inside I am dying

It's never too late
To live your life
The time is now
It's do or die

[Chorus: x3]

Not gonna run anymore [Repeat: x4]

Yeah

    General CommentThis song just truly rocks. It has such an epic and emotional feel. This song kind of speaks for itself but I definitely get a really nice imagery from the combination of feeling and the lyrics.

    You have to listen to this!

    I see a person who looked up to someone else all his life. His hero was always there for him, always backing him up when he felt so alone, always reaching out for him.

    But now this world can be toxic and the strong can become weak within the snap of a finger.

    Now his hero has fallen. He is losing his ground. He is falling a part.

    Now this kid has become a man and he's ready to give back to his hero. To help him out because it hurts him so to see his hero sitting there with his head in his hands, slowly losing his insanity.

    This song is just so incredible.

    General CommentIt's great, if everyone could just live their life by this song (especially the girl i'm trying to get with who won't take a chance on me! lol)....but yer, it's about that sudden intake of breath when someone propositions you and you think "hell, why not, what have i got to lose"... that's what it means to me

    General CommentTo me, it means exactly what chino said....

    The world would be great if the ones you look up to were perfect, but they aren't. The probably also have someone they look or looked up to, and even though they seem to know everything, they know nothing when they are with their own "hero".

    Eh, screw it, I'mo stop acting smart and just say this:

    General Commentummm a little correction here:
    It's hard for me to seel this way

    it is "It's hard for me to see you this way"

    sorry but i love this album and im kinda a perfectionist when it comes to the lyrics sorry again

    General CommentTo me, and this is purely just my opinion, it is about how someone another person looked up to either ditched them, or passed on. Or, anoter thought, how someone loved another, then lost them somehow or another
