Through black and blue
Through thick and thin
It takes much more to break this skin
Looks like we´ve finally made it
This time we finally made it

We´ve had our backs against the wall
And all you´ve said we’ve proven wrong
Looks like we´ve finally made it
This time we finally made it

We give and we take
We bend and we break
But that´s just the life that we´ve chosen
This sinking ship will not be abandoned

We´re under the radar, we´re under the rug
But that´s just the way that we´ve broken
Fall in line to get what you´ve needed
Out of time, so take it or leave it now

Through black and blue
Through thick and thin
It takes much more to break this skin
Looks like we´ve finally made it
This time we finally made it

We´ve had our backs against the wall
And all you´ve said we´ve proven wrong
Looks like we´ve finally made it
This time we finally made it

We´ve lost and we´ve won, but the damage is done
But that´s just the life that we´ve chosen
This sinking ship will not be abandoned

You´re here and you´re gone
But we´re moving on
Now nothing is left unspoken
The bottom line is all that we´re after
Another dime to silence your laughter now

One more time
One more try
One more time
One more try

Bright eyes have fallen far
But hold tight, a black moon´s on the rise
Cross lines with battle scars
Now you know, you get what you pay for

Through black and blue
Through thick and thin
It takes much more to break this skin
Looks like we´ve finally made it
This time we finally made it

We´ve had our backs against the wall
And all you´ve said we´ve proven wrong
Looks like we´ve finally made it
This time we finally made it

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song.

    I think it's about rising above other people's expectations of you. The judgement that people pass down on you doesn't matter. And that no matter what happens you have to keep going because in the end you can only depend on yourself.

    General CommentI agree with PiratesPrayer
    You should be your own person and not follow everyone else because it is "cool"
    Other people shouldn't have expectations of you they are just being judgmental
    You should live to your own expectations know one elses

    General CommentThe gang vocals on the chorus of this song are so powerful. Its so affective. I just saw them live today at Warped, and they opened with this. It was seriously one of the best bands I saw all day, and one of the best I've seen in a long time. They are fucking insane.

    General Commenti think this song is more about the band being recognized. the first chorus pertains to all the hard times and critics saying they wouldn't amount to anything. and the second chorus is ackowledgement to their fans sticking with the band and helping the band silence their critics and finally making it.

    PP, you must've been listening to a different song than I. i don't know where you got that idea from.
