"Death Before Dishonor" as written by and Bathroy/moody/spencer....
To the haters, the takers, the liars, all the vultures and the bottom feeding scum
The FCC, the FBI and every tin god with a badge and a gun
You talk and talk, you preach and bitch but your words don't mean a thing
You get what you give, you give what you get
Just the way it's always been

I choose death before dishonor
I'd rather die than live down on my knees
Bury me like a soldier, with my dignity!

You imitate the ostracized, put your head beneath the sand
Your cup it runneth over, must be rough to live so grand
You reap what you sew, you pay what you owe unless you bathe yourself in greed
You rob and you take, your world is fake
There's no honor amongst the thieves

I choose death before dishonor
I'd rather die than live down on my knees
Bury me like a soldier, with my dignity!

You're self righteous, self pretentious
Your ways are not for me
You're deluded, so confused
Your world I dominate

I choose death before dishonor
I'd rather die than live down on my knees
Bury me like a soldier

Bury me! (Bury me!)
Bury me! (Bury me!)
Bury me!

With my dignity!

    My OpinionOkay this song is my theme song ... the title says it "Death Before Dishonor".

    More and more I see people cheating, and lying and such to succeed, and it sickens me (hell this is why we are in the economic crisis ... don't believe me, watch the movie "Inside Job"). Thank god someone sees in living by an honor code. Doing what's right and earning what they deserve fair and square.

    I fight to live by an honor code, and I make sure others know it.

    So I say it "Death Before Dishonor"

    General CommentI could have sworn they were singing "there's no honor amongst the Feds" rather than "there's no honor amongst the thieves." Oh, well.

    My OpinionI would rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6. I would rather die any type of death before I bring dishonor to myself. With being prior military and as most of their songs are a honor to the military and the service members past, present and future. Its a way of life, everyone needs to have that code. If you respect care or want respect you need to honor that. you have to understand that there is always something bigger than yourself.
