"Battle Born" as written by Ivan Moody, Jeremy Spencer, Thomas Jason Grinstead, Zoltan Bathory and Kevin Churko....
Once upon a time I swore I had a heart
Long before the world I know tore it all apart
Once upon a time there was a part of me I shared
Years before they took away the part of me that cared

I've been a thousand places
And shook a million hands
I don't know where I'm going
But I know just where I've been

I've flown a million miles
And I've rode so many more
Every day, a castaway
A vagabond, battle born
I'm battle born

Once upon a time I had an open point of view
That was just so long ago before I had a clue
Was there such a time where I didn't stand alone?
Was there ever a time, and how would I have known?

I've been a thousand places
And shook a million hands
I don't know where I'm going
But I know just where I've been

I've flown a million miles
And I've rode so many more
Every day, a castaway
A vagabond, battle born

Attention all passengers, flight 555 now departing to Las Vegas to London
Please have your passports and boarding passes ready

I've been a thousand places
And shook a million hands
I don't know where I'm going
But I know just where I've been

I've flown a million miles
And I've rode so many more
Every day, a castaway
A vagabond, battle born

Been a thousand places
And shook a million hands (battle born)
I don't know where I'm going
But I know just where I've been (battle born)

I've flown a million miles
And I've rode so many more
Every day, a castaway
A vagabond, battle born
I'm battle born

I'm battle born

Every day, a castaway
A vagabond, battle born

Battle born

    Song MeaningThe song appears to be Ivan and how after 24 months of traveling, he was been all around the world shaking countless hands. And even though he is living his dream and doing what he has always wanted to do, he is physically and mentally depleted. Spending time with his family is becoming a thing of the distant past as all the flights, bus tours and concerts blur together.

    Ivan said of the song "everything worth fighting for you will actually HAVE TO fight for. Every wish, every dream, every idea comes to existence only through blood, sweat and sacrifice... we are all battle born"
