"Badge Of Pride" as written by and Fletcher Dragge Byron Mcmackin....
All the bullshit that I see
So much I can't believe
Grown man just tryin' to be
True to myself impossibly

I may not ever get rich
Might wind up digging a ditch
I won't cry and I won't bitch
I wont back down, I'll never quit

[Chorus]
It is my badge of pride
Hardcore 'til the day I die
just tryin' to survive
I won't back down or apologize
Say what you wanna say
I'm not listening anyway
I'll believe what I wanna believe
True to myself, that's how it's gotta be

All the methods that I use
All the things I use and abuse
It all leaves me confused
I've been torn up, beat down and bruised

But somehow I was saved
And I'm standing here today
Now I do things my own way
'Cause I'm never going back again

[Chorus]

All the bullshit that I see
So much I can't believe
Grown man just tryin' to be
True to myself impossibly

I may not ever get rich
Might wind up digging a ditch
I won't cry and I won't bitch
I wont back down, I'll never quit

[Chorus]

That's how it's gotta be...

    General CommentI had to do a speech in my english Class about a month ago about my beliefs about life, and she wanted us to include a song to go with it. I immediately went "Pennywise-Badge of Pride." This is exactly how I feel about life. Jim Lindburg is the man, Jason Matthew Thirsk, We miss you man......

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song are pretty straightforward, and that's what they are actually about, avoiding bullshit and staying true to the death. One of the best songs ever.
