I've talked the talk, I've walked the walk,
It's taken ten fucking years,
For them to see I don't need their approval.
I've paid the piper,
I've stayed my course,
Lived chomping at the bit.
With only blood, sweat, and tears to adhere to-

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
Give 'til there's nothing left,
Value in every breath,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.

Take it for granted,
Forsake the costs,
Wear a big, shit-eating grin
(With only blood, sweat, and tears to adhere to)
Now bear the burden to chase your fate
Grind your teeth 'til it fucking hurts
So they can see I don't need their approval.

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
Give 'til there's nothing left,
Value in every breath,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.

Seize the day,
Take your beatings,
Lead the way,
Or decay as you fall down...
You fall down.

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
Give 'til there's nothing left,
Value in every breath,
You need to realize that bleeding is a luxury.
It's a luxury,
Bleeding is a luxury!

    Arlight. This is not about hard work. They are saying the dying is menacing, and that you need to give your love and life to people, because life is something you only get one chance at. The idea of bleeding being a luxury is meaning that we're here on this earth for a short time, and cutting yourself or suicide is senseless because we're given the "luxury" of living. "value in every breath" is what causes me to think this, because in life, your number of breaths are limited. But whatever... It's just an opinion and so thus you don't have to see it as i do. ~luna
