"Youngbloods" as written by and Troy Jon-colin Brady Joel Fletcher Birch....
Have you looked up lately
And seen the cold lonely skies?
And looked into the mirror
And seen your black lonely eyes?
Well I have and I want to know
Why I feel like death is round the corner
I still feel so young
And in my chest I've the beating of
A thousand youngbloods

Youngbloods run free forever
Forget the death that's ever nearer
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
We won't give up these memories
We won't go near those cemeteries
And have you ever felt the breath of the midnight reaper?

His whisper's deathly cold, deathly cold and nearer
The sun never rises when you're in his presence
Your tears run black as coal
And your chest ceases its movements
And your young blood runs so cold
Have you felt the darkness calling?
And the whispers in the skies
Well so have I, so we need to run together

Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods run free forever
Forget the death that's ever fucking nearer
Light up the sky and scream fuck the reaper
This life is for the keeping
Youngbloods just keep on screaming

Youngbloods run free forever
Forget the death that's ever nearer
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
We won't give up these memories
We won't go near those cemeteries

Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods just keep on screaming
This life is for the keeping
This song is for the dreamers
Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods just keep on screaming
Just keep on screaming
Just keep on screaming
Let's go

Youngbloods
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
We won't give up these memories
We won't go near those cemeteries
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes

    General Commenti believe it's about anyone who has had a rough time, and is contemplating 'giving up' on life. but it tells them to harden the fuck up and keep on living ;)

    My OpinionThis song is just amazing. I feel like this song tells me that no matter how hard life, and how scared you are of dying, to not let those thoughts get in the way of your life, enjoy life and have fun, live it to the fullest.

    Song MeaningThis song is about how people may be going through hard times, but it is telling them to keep moving forward. When this song was written, by the screamer, Joel was going through really tough times (like when he writes most his songs). He didn't want to feel how he did, so he spent the time contemplating what a way to get through it would be.

    I particularly like the lyrics,
    "Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods run free forever
    Forget the death that's ever fucking nearer
    Light up the sky and scream fuck the reaper
    This life is for the keeping
    Youngbloods just keep on screaming,"
    because it represents what most people would be going through, and the way to overcome that struggle.
