"We Stand Up" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Ektor Varkatzas, Brandon Saller and Marc Mcknight....
I'll watch the sun go down this fall
And watch the night rain, please don't be casual
Was it my soul always the first to go
So this is for me and my boys
We're always way apart
To kick and scream
To be the ones you hate to know
I could never turn my back
Because this is who I know
You know all that isn't true
When you only have
In a world that corrupts
Our struggling soul
You know all that isn't true

If you plead don't do it twice
I've still got something to say here
I won't bend my heart, two ways fills my soul
If honesty has a price
Then I won't fucking pay it
We will take our dreams straight to the grave

Choke on this and on my words
And on us and my honesty
Then suffer consequence
Because I see the ambulance
The beauty of held in my eyes
If only for seconds
What will never take away
When we are built together
With our hands, with our hearts,
With our minds

If you plead don't do it twice
I've still got something to say here
I won't bend my heart, two ways fills my soul
If honesty has a price
Then I won't fucking pay it
We will take our dreams straight to the grave

If this is just in our heads
Then we'll keep on living a perfect life
One day at a time
God bless our cheating hearts and damn your lies

If this is just in our heads
Then we'll keep on living a perfect life
One day at a time
God bless us

If you plead don't do it twice
I've still got something to say here
I won't bend my heart, two ways fills my soul
If honesty has a price
Then I won't fucking pay it
We will take our dreams straight to the grave

    General CommentThis song is a definite anthem for Atreyu. Alex himself said this one will be great live. I think the lyrics basically sum up Alex's attitude to people around him. Fucking excellent. Atreyu never ever disappoint me

    General Commentim pretty sure these lyrics are not totally correct so here are alot better ones:

    I'll watch the sun go down this fall
    I've watched the night reign,
    Please note that casual observers are always
    the first to go,
    So this is for me and my boys
    We'll always play our part
    To kick and scream
    To be the ones you hate to know
    I could never turn my back
    Because this is who I know
    You know all that is the truth
    We are all we have
    In a world that corrupts
    Our struggling soul
    You know all that is the truth

    If you blink don't do it twice
    I've still got something to say here
    I will bear my heart to expose my soul
    If honesty has a price
    Then I won't fucking pay, dear
    We will take our dreams straight to the grave

    Choke on this and on my words
    And on us and my honesty
    It's of no consequence
    Because I've see the opulence
    The beauty I've held in my eyes
    If only for seconds
    What will never take away
    What we have built together
    With our hands, with our hearts,
    With our minds

    If you blink don't do it twice
    I've still got something to say here
    I will bear my heart to expose my soul
    If honesty has a price
    Then I won't fucking pay, dear
    We will take our dreams straight to the grave

    --Dirty Guitar solo--

    If this is just in our heads
    Then we'll keep on living the perfect lie
    One day at a time
    God bless our cheating hearts and damn your lies

    If this is just in our heads
    Then we'll keep on living the perfect lie
    One day at a time
    God bless us

    If you blink don't it twice
    I've still got something to say here
    I will bear my heart to expose my soul
    If honesty has a price
    Then I won't fucking pay, dear
    We will take our dreams straight to the grave

    General Commentthis song is how all five guys of atreyu fight for their band, and they'll never stop playing even though they get hated on so much.
