"Bleeding is a Luxury" as written by Porter Marc Mcknight, Brandon Saller, Ektor Alex Varkatzas, Travis Miguel and Daniel Dan Jacobs....
I've talked the talk, I've walked the walk,
It's taken ten fucking years,
For them to see I don't need their approval.
I've paid the piper,
I've stayed my course,
Lived chomping at the bit.
With only blood, sweat, and tears to adhere to

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
Give 'til there's nothing left,
Value in every breath,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
Give 'til there's nothing left,
Value in every breath,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.

Breakdown?

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
Give 'til there's nothing left,
Value in every breath,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
It's a luxury,

    Song MeaningI think this song is saying life is a gift and to not take it for granted and to live it for yourself and no one else. I don't it's so much saying fuck you to all the people don't like the path they've gone down as much as they're saying "I don't need their approval."

    Open your eyes and see that its so menacing you need to realise that
    bleeding is a luxury live till theres nothing left value in every breath you
    need to realise that bleeding is a luxury.

    verse 2
    take it for granted forsake the coste bear a big shit-eating grin with only
    blood sweat and tears to adhere to now bear the burden to choose your fate
    grind your teeth till it fucking hurts so they can see i dont need their approval

    chorous


    seize the day take your beatings lead the way or decay as you fall down!

    General CommentThe intro of this sounds EXACTLY like the intro to 'Feel Good Drag' by Anberlin. But I still love Atreyu.

    General Commentthis is a big fuck you to all their fans that are angry with the fact that atreyu is changing their sound. (i do like atreyus older work much better than their latest. this ablum is much better than lead sails and paper anchors by far but still not as good as their older stuff)...... the opening line says that they have worked hard to get where they are and are proud of it, not a shamed in the least. then he says he doesnt need the aproval of their fans that are upset with their change "i dont need their aproval". "bleeding is a luxury" means making music is a luxury. the chorus can be translated to say that life is menacing. the fans need to relize that bleeding(making music) is a luxury and their going to live and make music the way they want, they earned it, they put their "blood sweat and tears" into their music. "bear a big shit eating-grin" is telling the fans to eat shit if they dont like it. "now bear the burdon to choose your fate" is saying they had to choose and this is what they chose. "grind your teeth till it hurts" when people get angry they grind their teeth and he says that he doesnt care. "seize the day take your beatings lead the way or decay as you fall down" is saying that they will take the shit that people say about them because this is what they want, they dont need any aproval they

    General CommentI agree this could be viewed as Atreyu telling off the ex-fans that now bash them for their change in sound. But I do think it goes much further than just talking to that specific crowd... It isn't a "fuck you" just to the fans, as xxw1ckedxx stated, but instead I think it is aimed at everyone who has doubted him, put him down or otherwise down talked what he wanted out of life.
    Since they started in 98 and were independent for 2 years til 2000... the 10 years that hes "talked the talk and walked the walk" not meaning acted like he was the shit but did EXACTLY what he needed to do to get where he needed to be. He stayed the course and ATTACKED his dream until he got it. Saying that he literally had NOTHING but his blood, sweat, and tears to keep him going.

    To me it is a motivational speak to his listeners saying that whatever you do, there will be people against you. fuck them. Stay the course, go for what you want most in life. And while some might not see the worth of what you're doing... there is "value in every breath"

    General CommentJust saying, unlike a COUPLE of their new songs, i dont think its so much a "Fuck you" to critics of their change, i think its more of a "Life life to its fullest, rock it out! Don't take anything for granted, and don't let anyone tell ya otherwise"
