"Legend" as written by Matthew Robert Bruso, Brendan Alexander Macdonald and Mark Edward Castillo....
You brought us up although you were forced to
You had two children and you were just a kid yourself
You cared for us and we relied on you
We used to cry and that was your burden
We had to eat and you had to provide
We we're just ten and we weren't much younger than you
That's what we have
That is why I know you're the reason we all survived
When we were young and you were our mother we grew up fast cause that's how we had to

As I got older I knew I owed it all to you
I owe my youth to you
We both know what we have been through
You gave us your youth just so you could get us through
I owe you my youth
That is what we have
You are why I am
Put on your dancing shoes

    General CommentHrm... anyone seemed to notice the titles for all of the "Cover Your Tracks" albums are the names of movies staring Tom Cruise? Don't know if all of the songs are based on the movies because I haven't seen them all, but I'm sure there's some secret meaning behind it, ha ha.

    General CommentThe "put on your dancing shoes" part isn't actually said... Mat used to say that shit live sometimes, but doesn't anymore, as far as I know.

    I guess this song is about his mother.
