"My Own Hell" as written by Zoltan Bathory, Ivan Moody, Matthew Snell, Jeremy Spencer and Thomas Jason Grinstead....
Twisting and turning unable to sleep
Do the voices ever stop
My thoughts speak louder the more I resist
And they're driving me insane
Do they ever go

Inside I'm a danger to myself
I'm a danger to myself
Inside I'm a prisoner of my own hell
My own hell

Losing the battle I've waged on myself
Lock me up and toss the key
Toys in the attic its all getting worse
Why wont they let me be oh god make it stop

Inside I'm a danger to myself
I'm a danger to myself
Inside I'm a prisoner of my own hell
My own hell

Fit me for a straitjacket
Put me in a padded cell
I'm a danger to you all
And I'm a danger to myself

Inside I'm a danger to myself
I'm a danger to myself
Inside I'm a prisoner of my own hell
My own hell

Inside I'm a danger to myself
I'm a danger to myself
Inside I'm a prisoner of my own hell
My own hell

    General CommentProducer Kevin Churko encouraged frontman and lyricist Ivan Moody to take a highly personal approach throughout the record, and this song is about his self-destructive nature. Bathory explained to Kerrang!: "He definitely has multiple personalities that cause his life to be surrounded by chaos, and on this song he gives a really deep insight into the way that he is and the way that his mind works."

    This track was originally going to be a bonus song but guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained to Metal Hammer, "it turned out so well — so primal, so stark — that we decided to include it on the album."

    General Commentanother very complete song... apparently Ivan has alot of inner anguish to deal with... but at least he knows how to channel it into songs like this.

    General Comment@libernater, "toys in the attic" is like when you find old childhood toys in the attic, sends memories into your head, clutters your mind.

    General CommentThis song to me is about people with schizophrenia or ptsd as the lyrics "do the voices ever stop" seems like its about people with schizophrenia or any similar medical condition

    My InterpretationSince this song is on an album that was a dedication to the troops: I think this song is about PTSD.
