You rise, you fall, you're down then you rise again
What don't kill ya make ya more strong
You rise, you fall, you're down then you rise again
What don't kill ya make ya more strong

Rise, fall, down, rise again
What don't kill ya make ya more strong
Rise, fall, down, rise again
What don't kill ya make ya more strong

Through black days, through black nights
Through pitch black insides

Breaking your teeth on the hard life coming
(Show your scars)
Cutting your feet on the hard earth running
(Show your scars)
Breaking your life, broken, beat and scarred
But we die hard

The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath
What don't kill ya make ya more strong
The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath
What don't kill ya make ya more strong

Dawn, death, fight, final breath
What don't kill ya make ya more strong
Dawn, death, fight, final breath
What don't kill ya make ya more strong

They scratch me, they scrape me
They cut and rape me

Breaking your teeth on the hard life coming
(Show your scars)
Cutting your feet on the hard earth running
(Show your scars)
Breaking your life, broken, beat and scarred
But we die hard

Breaking your teeth on the hard life coming
(Show your scars)
Cutting your feet on the hard earth running
(Show your scars)
Bleeding your soul in a hard luck story
(Show your scars)
Spilling your blood in the hot sun's glory
(Show your scars)
Breaking your life, broken, beat and scarred
We die hard
We die hard
We die hard

    Its about the things we go through. The things that hurt us. Break us. Scar us. These are the things that make us who we are. There are dark days... Pitch black nights... These things we go through make us stronger. Be proud of who you are. What dont kill you'll make you more strong!

    I think this song doesn't neccassaraly have to be about war, I think it's about life in general, about how we rise and feel good, just to get pushed back down by the people who really shouldn't matter. But don't be afraid of who you are/were. Show the scars, embrace what has happened to make you, as the song says, more strong. And song is called Broken, Beat, and Scarred. it is correct

    This song is a war song. It inspires people to fight and to keep fighitng. Showing your scars is a way of scaring your enemy, showing them your history and experience in this field through your extensive scars. The more scars you have the more experience you have and the harder you die. Therefore giving it your hardest shit everyday is the best way to ensure you have the most experience possible for when you come to the next fight, as long as you stay alive, so fight to the final breath otherwise it's jsut going to be a wasted breath.

    This is one of my favorite songs on the album and the title above is right "Broken, Beat & Scarred" I think it is about how life is not easy and no matter how hard the obstacle no matter how many times you get knocked down or beat up you must pick yourself up and push forward As a result "We die hard".

    Long live the best Thrash Metal band METALLICA!
