"Dying Breed" as written by Zoltan Bathroy, Ivan Moody, Matthew Snell, Jeremy Spencer and Thomas Jason Grinstead....
Round 1!
I swear to god I'd do it for fun
Just a dead man walkin' with a double barrel shotgun
Ain't a single fucker left to fear
See their lips moving' but I don't wanna hear
Show down (I ain't backing down from anybody)
Throw down (If I don't get some space)
Lay down (not in this life or another)
It's a nightmare (and it's not going away)

All I wanted was your honesty
Something more than this
Something more than me (more than me)
Death can take me if I can't be free
I am not like you, I'm a dying breed

Round 2!
Something you just don't wanna do
Go dancin' with the devil, unless your wearing my shoes
You got nerve, and I'll give ya that
Watch the world crumble while you sit on your ass!
Wake up (get your head together motherfucker)
Straight up (before it's too late)
Stand up (nothing ever lasts forever)
Corrupt (and that's how it's gonna stay)

All I wanted was your honesty
Something more than this
Something more than me (more than me)
Death can take me if I can't be free
I am not like you, I'm a dying breed

All I wanted was your honesty
Something more than this
Something more than me (more than me)
Death can take me if I can't be free
I am not like you, I'm a dying breed

    General CommentThis was the last song to be recorded for the album. Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained to Metal Hammer why this was chosen as the opening track: "You know, we didn't have an awful lot of time in which to make the new record, and this was the last track that Ivan added his vocals to. That's why we originally had it down as a bonus track, because it was being worked on right at the end of our schedule… but when we heard the finished thing, we knew it had to go on the album. Track One!"
    He added: "In a way, it's a bit like 'Ashes' on the first album — 196 bpm, really fast, a heavy aggressive track with a great melodic chorus. It really was the missing piece of the puzzle."

    General CommentThe song can easly be releated to the government and the fact that they are watching the world fall apart without moving a finger, and they keep talking but wont keep their promises,
    But the "dying breed" stance makes me think this song's is more likely about the people that keep being one identical to the other, refusing to revolt, to make a riot, all governed by technologies and not having their own ideas.
    So the man in the song refuses to be like them, like the rest of the world, and explains why he is different and so will be till death arrives, even if this difference will cost him life.
