The disappointed faces of your peers  
Take a look at me 'cause I could not care at all
Do or die
You’ll never make me
Because the world will never take my (heart)
Go and try; you’ll never break me
We want it all, we want to play this (part)
I won’t explain, or say I’m sorry
I’m unashamed, I’m gonna show my (scar)
Give a cheer, for all the broken
Listen here, because it’s who we are

This is definitely my favorite section of lyrics out of all the songs on BP. too bad it's too long to really put anywhere like an ava or something :( cause you really need the whole thing to get the point across. oh well. i still love it :D

I don't think I can even begin to explain the way these words are basically tattood to my soul. forever a part of me. Constantly in the back of my head before I make even the tiniest decision.

I can never thank them enough for what they've done for me.

Agreed. The best sections of lyrics in BP. It's so profound. Especially when everyone is singing them in unison live. &hearts

It could go back to what they say about "it's alright to be fucked up", and every experience, good or bad, should be used as a weapon in the future. That's how I've viewed my 'not-depression'/breakdown/whatever and all the shit in my life: if I didn't carry these scars from back then, how would I be able to help anyone properly now? I can sympathise with a lot of issues people have, because I've been through them too. Showing people your 'scars' leaves you open, but can be a great help to others.

Which also makes me think that there's something very selfless about this song: "I'm gonna show my scar" - it leaves you open, gives the enemy a weapon, but if you're strong enough, they can't do shit to you, and it gives the wounded strength and belief in getting better.

/end rambling....which didn't have much to do with the lyrics after all that. damn O.o
