"First Blood" as written by Kyle Dixon and Chris Schwartz....
They drew first blood NOT FUCKING ME. The insitutions that try to decide how I should live my life. With their traditions they expect me to fall in line, but their will, their way is not for me. Anyone thinking with an open mind is often ostracized. So my decision just to stay within my own kind is justified. They drew first blood it wasn't me. I didn't ask for all these things to be part of this world OR PART OF ME. And who are they to protest me when all I want is to live peacefully. JUST LEAVE ME BE. Born in this world with innocent eyes. The more I see it becomes more clear to me I cannot trust powers that be. Taught to embrace with open arms a society that does not have a place for me. I didn'task for this social divide and all the racists and the scum of mankind. But now I know, I'm on my own, so leave me be, and I'll live my own life. This is the way things have to be. All because they drew THEY DREW FIRST BLOOD. As corporations gain control of the world, the more and more the common good is not served. They won't dictate or brainwash me to buy their dreams and consume 'til I die. The best advice given to me is never serve who is not there to serve me. They drew first blood it wasn't me. They drew first blood NOT FUCKING ME.

    Song MeaningThis song is about the corporate control of society. Medications and products shoved in our faces constantly. The media constantly implying how we should think and feel, and if you feel differently, then you're not a "patriot," or you're a heretic or just weird.

    The song can also clearly be construed to refer to institutionalized religion. I myself am proudly irreligious. Yet I am constantly being subjugated by scumbags who think that they're superior because they believe in nonsense. I just want to be left alone AND TREATED EQUALLY, yet they won't have it that way.

    In all cases, they drew first blood, not fucking me. They're the ones who try influencing me to believe the Hollywood lie, to take their expensive pills, and to believe in their made-up God. They are the ones who love telling me that I'm too fat, not patriotic enough, and going to hell.

    Fuck them and fuck you.
