"Legacy" as written by Tobin Esperance, Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton and David Buckner....
Dead president fuck the president
Manson's strive for power
While I work to save my residents
He owns you even though he never told you
Mark of the beast on ya hand
Now he owns you
Thrown down to the bottom level
Ruled by the fist and the fist is the devil
I metamorphosis and make myself level
We are the future we are right now right now
I'm taking a stab at the sick sick sick
I know what evil is and evil could suck my dick
Like Sam Hain and God ain't no joke
Ya better watch ya neck cause ya might get choked
I'm dodgin' arrows from the dark side everyday
And I'm a main target cause of what I say
I'm dodgin' arrows from the dark side everyday
You sink we swim we rise you fall we met our fate
Together I was here from the start
And I'll be here in the end
Legacy legacy legacy legacy

    General CommentI agree with you PapaRoacher, but I think its also about a corrupt world. He talks about evil, and Satan. "Mark of the beast on ya hand now he owns you
    Thrown down to the bottom level
    Ruled by the fist and the fist is the devil" The mark of the beast is a symbol given to those that are evil. This is talking about all the evil in corruption in the world. Anyways, this is a kickass song

    General CommentI must not have the version the author of these lyrics have, because evidently, they are almost the same, but not in the proper order...

    anyway, I don't believe it's about the evil in the world, or evil in general, it's about mankind... we think we'll be here till the end of the world, wheras, our legacy will die with us, and the planet will continue even after we are gone... it's just worded crazily... just think of the song as bieng sung by the planet, and not a man, and you'll see what I mean...

    too me, it's about the planet bieng alive, knowing what is happening, and trying to stop what's happening, but with company's polluting more and more, and the president (be it a country's, or company's) not doing anything to stop it, but trying to make a profit off of it... and backing into the fear of god stable to stop the onlooker's from destroying the people in charge to make a better world...

    General CommentOkay you guys are pretty close but the lyrics are well studied and thought up Greatly...

    "Mansons strive for power" that is about a society called the free masons. they are just like ever other society.. They haev their own richuals and pretty much are just in control.

    "I'm dodgin arrows from the dark side everyday
    And I'm a main target cause of what I say"
    Means because hes letting his belifs out to the public about the country he is being watched...and targeted...

    "Mark of the beast on ya hand now he owns you" Read the bible revelations,,,,

    General CommentTHIS IS NOW MY SECOND FAVORITE PAPA ROACH SONG BEHIND 'BETWEEN ANGELS AND INSECTS' I JUST WISH I COULD HEAR A NICE SOUNDING EXPLICIT VERSION OF THIS SONG.. THE ONLY TIME IVE HEARD A REGULAR VERSION OF THIS WAS ON LIMEWIRE AND HIS VOIC WAS ALL MESSED UP AND DISTORTED... BUT I ALREADY OWN THE CLEAN VERSION OF INFEST AND HAVE RECENTLY BOUGHT THE UK VERSION OF INFEST BUT THAT TOO HAS THE CLEAN VERSION ONLY IT PISSES ME OFF BUT I LOVE THIS SONG AND BAND ..ESPECIALLY THE LYRICS "I was here from the start and I'll be here in the end"
    .. I THINK ITS ALSO ABOUT THEIR LEGACY AS A BAND SAYING I WAS HERE IN THE BEGINNING AND WELL BE A BAND UNTIL THE END MEANING THEY WILL HAVE A LONG RUN OF SUCCESS WHICH THEY HAVE HAD FORTUNATELY...
