Danger up ahead
Just ignore the warning signs instead
Toughen up and break the rules that hold you down.

Smash the glass. Shoot straight.
Don't look back, we wear the mask of fate
Just live your life loud and proud.
Don't back down.

Live the life. Take the risk.
We'll never die, in the afterworld
In the end, start again.
We'll stay alive, in the afterworld

Live the life. Take the risk.
There's no goodbyes in the afterword
In the end, start again.
We never die in the afterworld

Die.
When we wanna, you know were gonna. Die.
When we wanna, you know we got to. Die.
When we wanna, you know we will
Die. Die.

Wreck yourself for fun
Turn the safety off the fucking gun
Get off your ass.
Today starts now.

Live the life. Take the risk.
We'll never die, in the afterworld
In the end, start again.
We'll stay alive, in the afterworld

Live the life. Take the risk.
There's no goodbyes in the afterword
In the end, start again.
We never die in the afterworld

Die.
When we wanna, you know were gonna. Die.
When we wanna, you know we got to. Die.
When we wanna, you know we will
Die. Die.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about the acceptance of death and brushing off the inherent fear. Free yourself from the prison that is fear and live your life. Do things that scare you, take risks, do everything that you're told NOT to do. Carpe diem.

    Song Meaningthis song was written for jackass 3d, but it has WAY more meaning to it. its about taking chances and living "loud and proud", also about not fearing death/dying. my favorite line from any song is in this song and also reminds me of the random hero ryan dunn R.I.P :( .

    General CommentThat bridge riff when he sings "When we wanna, you know we got to die" is probably the heaviest riff in any CKY song ever. Brilliant song.

    My InterpretationI feel this song is about being fearless and doing what you want. In the end, we all end up dead so why wait for then when you can die now. And not literally die, but just the shit that makes you, YOU.

    Also, this song is NOT about Ryan Dunn. The music video (which I don't understand how), is dedicated to him.
