"Proven" as written by and Chris Beattie James Shanahan....
You want to see me fail
You won't get your chance
(You want to see me fail)
You won't get your chance
(You want to see me fail)
You'll never get your chance

This is our lives
This is who we are
You can't put a price on it
It's strength within our hearts

From within our souls
Stood strong throughout the years (Stood strong)
This runs through our veins
We stay true to ourselves

You want to see me fail
You won't get your chance
(You want to see me fail)
You won't get your chance
(You want to see me fail)
You'll never get your chance

Who are you to judge us
Who are you to condemn us
I have respect, honor and dedication
For my family and my friends

From within our souls
Stood strong throughout the years (Stood strong)
This runs through our veins
We stay true to ourselves

You want to see me fail
You won't get your chance
This is deeper than blood
It's all that we have
Proven

    General CommentI agree mudagram50.
    This song is about people wanting to see him fail b/c they think he has no talent. But he is proving that they won't b/c he knows he has what it takes.

    General CommentAt least Hatebreed has the balls to tell people who give them shit to fuck off. Most bands just try to blow it off and don't stand up for themselves.

    "yeah lets write songs about how people who dont like our band suck... god hatebreed piss me off sometimes"

    If you dont like then dont listen to it. It's that simple.

    This song is about doing what you do best and not listening to negative people.

    General Commenti think this song was about some people from the hardcore scene that hatebreed came from giving them shit for supposedly "selling-out" with releasing Perseverance on Universal Records, and hatebreed basically saying "we've been here for years and we're going to keep doing what we believe is right and we will be sticking around whether you think we will or not." and you know what? what hardcore band that started in 1995 is still around, let alone fucking revelant enough to keep releasing great records and still believing in the same values they founded the band on? that's right none except hatebreed.

    this song reminds me of that line from the bane song Count Me Out "and i'll be here tomorrow, and i'll be here next year, just like this x on the back of my hand, i ain't going nowhere" (excluding the straight edge reference of course haha.)
