"Heard It All Before" as written by Chad L. Gray, Ryan Martinie, Matthew Mcdonough and Greg Tribbett....
Past times are for laziness and past time is gone.
Can't live in it, can't live with it.
Hard times for the cryin' type are like a wrecking ball
Hard as a stone, can't let it penetrate.

You've gotta believe in yourself, with your mind,
With your guts, with your heart, make a stand.
A stand against fools that will steal it away,
Rip the heart from your chest, and devour it.

I ain't sellin' what they're wanting to buy anymore, no more never
I ain't listen because I've heard all that bullshit before, so many times before.

The eyes of a dog will wander for food, like a scavenger.
You've gotta own it, gotta defend it.
You've gotta believe in the hunt, in the prowl, in the search,
In the kill. I'm the alpha man

I ain't sellin' what they're wanting to buy anymore, no more never
I ain't listen because I've heard all that bullshit before,
So many times.

I've, I've heard it all before, I've heard it! I've. I've lived it all before, I've lived it
No more

The parasites sucking the life out of me,
They're like cannibals
Bleed you for anything, bleed you for everything.

You've gotta believe in the strength, of your mind, of the soul,
To the bone. What is real.

I've, I heard it all before, I've heard it! I've. I lived it all before, I've lived
No more I've, I heard it all before, I've herd it! I've, I seen it all before, I've seen it!
Heard it. Lived it. Know it. Believe it.

I live for no one, I'd die for no one.
I've, I heard it all before, I've heard it! I've. I lived it all before, I've lived
No more

I've. Heard it, seen it, lived it. I've. Done it, know it, believe it.
I've. I've heard it all before, I lived it!

    My InterpretationI think this song is about being yourself, being strong and not allowing others to change you. Knowing who you are and not allowing others to "buy" what you have, and keep it for yourself. It seems no a days people sell their qualities to fit into society and forget who they were to begin with. And heard it all before meaning, people trying to convince the person of change, but defying what is being spoken to change what others feel is misguided, and unaccepted. People seem less accepting to small things, such as piercing, and tattoos, when that has no bearing on whether or not the person is bad, or good. Everyone is who they are, and appearance really doesn't have anything to do with it.
