"The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Adam Duce, Ahrue Luster and Dave Mcclain....
Yes I walk the righteous
Many men have walked before
And this pain's held
A broken shell
Straight shackled onto the floor

So welcome to the world
That I lived in
Puking up bile and hate
My world has turned
To false inclusion
Sickening broken state

But then I'll see
There's things in me
That make you want it
More than you

But I deny all this
Cause pain was my bliss
Get wasted on self destruct

Just hold on to the edge

It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years

Yes I walk the path
That gives me
Confidence strong and pure
Now I realize
That freedom rises
From confronting the source

I built these walls around me
And I can break them all away
I'll focus all the strength I call
Into unstoppable energy

So hold on to the edge

It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years

Hold on
I'm not falling
Not falling down again

It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years

Believe me that
Time will sear the wound
Time will sear the wound
Time will seal the wound

    General CommentI think this song is Robb Flynn saying that the reason they have succeded as a band, is because of their will to succeed and the fact that it is all down to the 'blood, sweat and tears' they have shed. I also think it is a reply to people who were calling them sell-outs, saying that "the reason we are here, is because we worked so hard for this".
