Death and kill the dust
And we're waiting
Ruined in the rust
We're all craving

It feels like
It feels like

Don't you know the cost
Of your betrayal
Your the one thats lost
Your gonna fail

It feels like
It feels like your gasping with all your might

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken things
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die
You can't take away my pride
I won't be denied
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die

Its sent from below
I'm on the wire
Fire will burn below
But I am higher

It feels like
It feels like

Don't you know the cost
Of your betrayal
Your the one thats lost
Your gonna fail

It feels like
It feels like your gasping with all your life

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken things
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die
You can't take away my pride
I won't be denied
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die

Do you remember how
You became who you are now
Do you remember how
It felt to breathe without

Gasping with all your might

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken things
Nothing left to fight

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken things
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die
You can't take away my pride
I won't be denied
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die

There's nothing left to fight
There's nothing left to fight
Live free or let me die

Live free or let me die
Live free or let me die

    General CommentHere are the fixed lyrics

    Death until the dust, and we're waiting
    Ruined in the rust, of our craving
    It feels like, it feels like
    Don't you know the cost, of your betrayal
    You're the one that's lost, you're gonna fail
    It feels like, it feels like you're gasping with all your might

    You can't take away my strength
    Fix these broken veins
    There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)
    You can't take away my pride, I won't be denied
    There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)

    Insects walk below, I'm on a wire
    Fire will burn below, but I am higher
    It feels like, it feels like
    Don't you know the cost, of your betrayal
    You're the one that's lost, you're gonna fail
    It feels like, it feels like you're gasping with all your might

    You can't take away my strength
    Fix these broken veins
    There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)
    You can't take away my pride, I won't be denied
    There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)

    Do you remember how
    You became who you are now
    Do you remember how
    It felt to breathe without
    Gasping with all your might

    You can't take away my strength
    Fix these broken veins
    Nothing left to fight

    You can't take away my strength
    Fix these broken veins
    There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)
    You can't take away my pride, I won't be denied
    There's nothing left to fight
    Nothing left to fight (Nothing left to fight)
    Live free or let me die
    Live free or let me die
    Live free or let me die

    General CommentI don't remember the name of the video where I saw this, but there was a video on YouTube where John was being interviewed and he said that he wrote this because of 9/11. I think that it's about how Osama bin Laden believes in God, but he is betraying what God stands for.

    General Commenti think this song is saying that we don't know the cost of turning on God and we all need to get our crap together...and the devil can't put us down (you can't take away my strength) Also the first line is "Death UNTIL the dust"

    General Commenti love this song because it reminds me of how terrible life can get when i walk away form god, and it helps me to remember that i'm never invincible because god is the only one who can fix us.

    General CommentThis song is so great! i love it. I think that it is meaning that he is looking toward god but the devil is pulling him and binding him with sin. "Live free" and if he can't get out of the sin he wants to die "Or let me die". I think the term gasping with all your might refers to trying to get out of the sin and breathe god in. "Do you remember how You became who you are now Do you remember how It felt to breathe without Gasping with all your might" hes asking if we remember how we came to god willingly and by our own accord and we weren't forced to love him.

    My InterpretationThis is basically God telling satan just to GIVE UP! I mean seriously! Satan is just a little bitch who is trying waaayyy to hard to rise above God. EVEN THOUGH HE KNOWS HE ALREADY LOST!!!
