Heart of a Champion is a song from the band's sixth studio album, New Empire Vol. 1.

Background

In an interview with Volume, Johnny 3 Tears said this about the song: "I think society as a whole is obsessed with comparisons - the music industry is no different. In Hollywood Undead, it's probably just because we can't really be pigeonholed. I don't know how to describe our music exactly. There are far too many rules that people in the music industry apply anyway. Music should bring freedom and shouldn't be tied to an insane list of rules."

Official Lyrics

Johnny 3 Tears: Mic check...yo, man, fuck you
I got some coke in my sock and a couple rocks too
I got a bottle full of Ketel, drunk pedal to the metal
Got some beef I gotta settle, but you gotta check the dentals
They don't like me? I make the music I want to
These divas fucking need us, man, worse than their heartbeat
They're digging up my grave, but these bitches gotta pay
And the price of admission, it ain't ever gonna change
It'll end when I say it 'cause you're wet when I spray it
And the more you fucking hate us, well, the more you'll fucking play it, bitch

Danny: Go, I'm crossing out names
Charlie Scene: (Crossing out names)
Danny: Go, and no one is safe
Charlie Scene: (No one is safe)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, I'll leave a rose on your grave
Charlie Scene: (Rose on your grave)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, it's the dove and grenade
Charlie Scene: (Dove and grenade)

I'm absent-minded mentally, slaughtering all my enemies
I'm murdering recklessly, bitch, these streets ain't no Sesame
Another notch in my felony list, I'm not wasting energy on this
I’m gonna win, I’ll be honest, that's something I fucking promise
Godless so I'll take the charges, spotless is my fucking conscience
God, this is so fucking pompous like Congress if I was in office
God, I'm just so damn exhausted, novices making me nauseous
I'm gonna win, that's regardless, this ain't no place for the heartless
'Cause I live for the pain
The fight, the glory, the game

Danny: Go, I'm crossing out names
Charlie Scene: (Crossing out names)
Danny: Go, and no one is safe
Charlie Scene: (No one is safe)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, I'll leave a rose on your grave
Charlie Scene: (Rose on your grave)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, it's the dove and grenade
Charlie Scene: (Dove and grenade)

J-Dog: Compare me to none
Compare me to none
Compare me to none
I got the heart of a champion
Charlie Scene, Danny, J-Dog, and Johnny 3 Tears: Compare me to none
Compare me to none
Compare me to none
I got the heart of a champion
J-Dog: (I got the heart of a champion)

Danny: Go, I'm crossing out names
Charlie Scene: (Crossing out names)
Danny: Go, and no one is safe
Charlie Scene: (No one is safe)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, I'll leave a rose on your grave
Charlie Scene: (Rose on your grave)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, it's the dove and grenade
Charlie Scene: (Dove and grenade)

Danny: Go, I'm crossing out names
Johnny 3 Tears: (Compare me to none! Compare me to none!)
Danny: Go, and no one is safe
Johnny 3 Tears: (Compare me to none! I got the heart of a champion!)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, I'll leave a rose on your grave
Johnny 3 Tears: (Compare me to none! Compare me to none!)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Go, it's the dove and grenade
Johnny 3 Tears: (Compare me to none! I got the heart of a champion!)
