"When One Bests Defeat" as written by and Matthew Fox Steven Kleisath....
The vigor in my soul won't stand for this anymore
The potency that is my being is far ruin
Far from silenced And far from death
With Severed legs I'd walk with intent to prosper
A body plauged with sickness and still I'd dare to dream
For I can Breathe my blood is fire and I bleed life
The defeatest is dead
No remorse for that man who dies
A sad bitter man whose contempt for himself exceded his contempt for the world
No remorse for those who chis spirit
A sad bitter lot whose lack of insight left a man broken
Left many broken
The disenchanted led by the frightened only blessed
With the absence of respect
A world enslaved by itself but one was reborn to conquer
I climb to the crest and strive to climb higher
At the core of my being is vitality that will not die
My blood is fire and I bleed life My blood is fire

    General CommentYou are a fag.......if this song has NO meanings for you, you should throw your self off of a tall building. The world needs less emo punk trash, and more people who actually know how to feel and embrace pain!

    General CommentYou ma'am are a jackass.
    That'ssort of like saying if you don't understand something in math at first you should kill yourself, unless you're just plain joking.

    As for the song, it seems to be about doing whatever he can to improve the world, "With severed legs I'd walk with intent to prosper"

    General Commentoi black angel! , one thing:
    maybe there would be less pain to 'feel and embrace' if people were more tolerant of others sexual orientation? i think the fact that he disagrees with you has very little to do with which way his door swings.

    anyway, shai hulud = good times
