"On The Day" as written by Henry Rollins, William James Wilson, Marcus Blake and Jason Jared Mackenroth....
Here you come again
Crucifixion mind
Got a hammer in your hand

You've got the look in your eye
But do you have what it takes?
You've got to ask yourself
Can you break me?

It's one thing to hold the hammer in your hand
But do you have it in you to pound the nail?

So many live in fear of what only a few can do
What lives inside of you?

I see you staring
But you see me see right through
Now what are you gonna do? Can you kill me?

As you confront yourself
The hammer becomes so heavy
Your eyes are mine
Now you see me

It's one thing to hold the hammer in your hand
But do you have it in you can you pound that nail?
So many of you line up but so few of you cross the line
Talk is talk - kill is kill

Here I am
And there you are
With threats you only get so far
Take a look at yourself
You can't break me

Nothing to my name but I have so much more than you
Do what you're gonna do
You can't kill me

It's one thing to hold the hammer in your hand
But do you have it in you can you pound that nail?
So many of you line up but so few of you cross the line
Talk is talk, kill is kill
Talk is talk, kill is kill

    General CommentI feel there's a couple different meanings within the song. Rollins is saying that so many people talk s-t, but when it comes down to it, they never act on anything. And if they do, Rollins is saying right back "Ok, you can't win. You won't break me".

    That's how I see it anyway :p
