Do Or Die

Album: Getting Away With Murder (2004)
  • Today I saw my hero fall apart
    The one who taught me to be strong
    On the outside I look fine
    But on the inside I am dying

    My strength is overcome by pain
    My love for you remains the same
    The loneliness is setting in
    I have no one to free my sins

    It's never too late
    To live your life
    The time is now
    It's do or die

    [Chorus]
    It's never too late
    To live your life
    The time is now
    It's yours and mine

    Now it's my time to help you out
    Cause you were there when I was down
    It's hard for me to see you this way
    Losing all your sanity

    You helped me keep my dreams alive
    Without you how will I survive
    It's time for me to be a man
    Now I finally understand

    It's never too late
    To live your life
    The time is now
    It's do or die

    [Chorus: x2]

    Not gonna run anymore [Repeat: x3]

    Today I saw my hero fall apart
    The one who taught me to be strong
    On the outside I look fine
    But on the inside I am dying

    It's never too late
    To live your life
    The time is now
    It's do or die

    [Chorus: x3]

    Not gonna run anymore [Repeat: x4]

  • Brittany from Normal, IlTHis sounds crazy but to me he was his own hero, and he realized he can't to it on his own. He sais " I have no one to free my sins" TO me it is about realizing that we need GOd in our lives, and once we do we can really live. haha that could be over analyzing a bit, but to me that is what the songs means.
  • Andrewvenom92390 from Elyria, Ohthis song is pretty much a mix of what everyone is saying. its about someones hero that they look up to, taking a fall and losing what they believed in. and now the that someone changeing roles with there hero and showing them that its not to late for anything
  • Tyler from Brantford, CanadaThis song is obviously about someone's hero, and personally, I think its about how that hero fell..this has to be one of the most meaningful songs out there, because of how much I can relate to it. When I heard it, I couldn't stop thinking about how much it related to someone I know in my life. All the lyrics match perfectly with whats happened to this friend of mine.
  • Melissa from ToledoThis is my favorite song on the album I love it so much. Papa Roach rocks!!!
