Lyrics

All the bullshit that I see
So much I can't believe
Grown man just tryin' to be
True to myself impossibly
I may not ever get rich
Might wind up diggin' a ditch
I won't cry no I won't bitch
I wont back down and I'll never quit

It is my badge of pride
Hardcore 'til the day I die
Just tryin' to survive
I won't back down or apologize
Say what you wanna say
I'm not listening anyway
I'll believe what I wanna believe
True to myself that's how it's gotta be

All the methods that I use
All the things I use and abuse
It all leaves me confused
I've been torn up, beat down and bruised
But somehow I was saved
And I'm standing here today
Now I do things my own way
'cause I'm never going back again

It is my badge of pride
Hardcore 'til the day I die
Just tryin' to survive
I won't back down or apologize
Say what you wanna say
I'm not listening anyway
I'll believe what I wanna believe
True to myself that's how it's gotta be
That's how it's gotta be, yeah
That's how it's gotta be, yeah

All the bullshit that I see
So much I can't believe
Grown man just tryin' to be
True to myself impossibly
I may not ever get rich
Might wind up diggin' a ditch
I won't cry no I won't bitch
I wont back down and I'll never quit

It is my badge of pride
Hardcore 'til the day I die
Just tryin' to survive
I won't back down or apologize
Say what you wanna say
I'm not listening anyway
I'll believe what I wanna believe
True to myself that's how it's gotta be
That's how it's gotta be, yeah
How it's gotta be
That's how it's gotta be, yeah
How it's gotta be
