Push your care, push your burdens aside.
Erase everything inside and leave just one thing on your mind.
You only live once so just go fucking nuts.

Muah... Go!

Live life hard! (x2)

You only get one shot, so shoot!

With every breath you take, you're dying.
With every step we take we're falling apart.
If we only had one chance we'd breathe,
So let's take this chance right now and scream.

You only live one life, for a very short time.
So make every second divine.


Live life hard! (x2)

Are you still breathing?
It's your heart that's beating inside that keeps us alive.
And for the very first time we're pushing aside.
To surrender everything that you see in my eyes,
Except for the one thing on my mind,
That I am alive! For the very first time!

For the first time, pushing worry aside. (x2)

Erase everything inside (x3)
And leave just one thing!

You only get one shot!
You only live once so just go fucking nuts (x4)

Live life hard! (x4)

    oh my gosh its so hard to look at these lyrics and not start crying this song opened up a whole new world for me it really did. we do only live once so why not make the very best of it? Mitch used to sing this song with such meaning and passion it breaks my heart when i listen to it but the words still mean the same if not have more meaning to them now. Mitch was trying to tell us that we should do what we want and be who we want and to not let the words of others keep us from doing so. Mitch left a legacy that saved many lives...including my own and i will always love him for that. this song holds so much truth to it if you just really listen to the words. thank you Mitch Lucker even though your stomping with the Angels now you are still keeping me going as well as so so many others and we all love you for that you are our hero and we will always love you. R.I.P Mitch Lucker.

    The best part about this is that the black crown came out before the drake version... This is the original yolo

    I like this meaning of yolo better than drakes or who ever thinks they are cool and can make a meme out of this

    The meaning behind this song is to get it into your mind that you only live once so do what you can. Don't give in dont give up. Mitch sang in this song in the beginning. "You only live once so just go fucking nuts." That's what Mitch did with his life. He didn't care who said anything to him about it. You only get one chance so just don't live your life worrying abou everything. This whole entire band experience since day one have done nothing but try to show you to live your life the way YOU want to. Not the way others do. Not just in this song. But if you listen to their other song you'd understand how important it is to love and livelike there's no tomorrow. My best friend used to sing this to me. He always did. Then in may of 2012, he committed suicide. But it definitely showed me. You do only live one time. Do not miss your chance to blow. Your life is precious. And you only live once so just go ducking nuts, right? Rest in peace Mitch. Okay. I'm sorry that was longer than it should've been. Haha. Okay bye.
