"Built to Last (2)" as written by Alexander Francis Barry, Mark Christopher Kasprzyk and Walton Steven Gagel....
I've been to a place so cold, it steals your soul
It takes more than hope, it takes its toll
Where the fine line begins and heroes end
Where the nay sayers pray and the innocent sin
Where night conquers day and fortunes fade
The land sharks stay and hurt won't go away
When trouble sets in and you can't get out
Cause there's so much fear and doubt

I've been beat up and broken down
And I've been there a thousand times
I may have walked through the worst in hell my friend
And we all got our reasons why

I gave my life for the things I had
And it all flies by so fast
I may have walked through the worst in hell my friend
Now I know I was built to last
Built to last

I've been to a place so dark, it breaks your heart
The devil's teeth stay sharp and they leave their mark
And everything you've built, fuckin' falls apart
If you made it this far
You're right back where you start
And people work hard and just get by
Can't hang your head or hold it too high
No matter what's at stake, you stake your claim
And I won't live my life in vain

I've been beat up and broken down
And I've been there a thousand times
I may have walked through the worst in hell my friend
And we all got our reasons why

I gave my life for the things I had
And it all flies by so fast
I may have walked through the worst in hell my friend
Now I know I was built to last
Built to last, built to last,
I'm built to last, built to last

You keep rollin' on
There's no lookin' back
You keep rollin' on
There's no lookin' back
Built to last
(That's what it is)
Built to last
And you keep rollin' on
There's no lookin' back
You keep rollin' on
There's no lookin' back

I've been beat up and broken down
And I've been there a thousand times
I may have walked through the worst in hell my friend
And we all got our reasons why

I gave my life for the things I had
And it all flies by so fast
I may have walked through the worst in hell my friend
Now I know I was built to last
I was built to last
Built to last, I'm built to last
Built to last
Built to last
Built to last
It all flies away,
It all flies away so fast
It all flies away,
It all flies away so fast

    My OpinionIt seems like this song is pretty much self explanatory but I am just going to add my idea. I think that it means that he has struggled through so much pain and struggles in his life- he has been beaten and broken. He has just realized that he has to keep moving forward no matter what has happened to him in his past. His life still moves on so he gets more chances to make things better but he now knows that he needs to try to not to rely on the past to restrict him in any way or else it will just get him down. After realizing he needs to stay motivated to get through life, he recognized the fact that he is "built to last" anything life throws at him which can then give him to confidence to face his present and future challenges.
