"Blood of Heroes" as written by Marty Friedman, Nick Menza, Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson....
Walking stiff let me tall ya'
Better left for dead
And now we are on a mission
Well it's full speed ahead
My legion's when we do the crime
Let's get one thing straight
To get there early is on time
And showing up on time is late
Ladies and gents, we're still alive
By the skin of our teeth, now it's killing time
Angel in our pocket, devil by our side
We ain't going nowhere, 'cuz heroes never die
Still alive
Blood of heroes
Never die
They never die
We've been run down every hill
Chased up all the dead end streets
But if you try to cut us out
You'll get a kick in the teeth
Ladies and Gents, we're still alive
By the skin of our teeth, now it's killing time
Fasten up you head belts,
Time to ride the skies
It's time to be immortal, 'cuz heroes never die

    General CommentI think it could be a metaphor for the music scene which is like a war zone everyone coming in all starry eyed and hoping to make it big but everyone gets shot down and even if your the last ones around (the ones who made it big) you still gotta knock down all the little ones who are keeping it real and not selling out and that's just if you want to keep it up for now but if you want to be a real god you gota die young while you are still at the top of your game so you are forever in that spot
    Just my thoughts on what the song could mean but then again I'm stoned as fuck
