"Been To Hell" as written by Jorel Decker, Daniel Murillo, George Arthur Ragan, Jordon Kristopher Terrell, Dylan Peter Alvarez, Matthew Busek and George Don Gilmore....
Welcome to a city that'll bring you to your knees
It'll make you beg for more, until you can't even breathe
Your blindfold is on tight, but you like what you see
So follow me into the night, 'cause I got just what you need
We're all rollin' down the boulevard, full of pimps and sharks
It's a motherfuckin' riot, we've been dying to start
You better grab a hold 'cause now you know your falling apart
You thought these streets were paved in gold
But their dirty and dark

Been to hell
I can show you the devil!
Down you fell
Can't hold yourself together!
Soul to sell
Down here you live forever!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Been to hell
I can show you the devil!
Down you fell
Can't hold yourself together!
Soul to sell
Down here you live forever!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Nightmares!
Welcome!

In the belly of the beast, I'm a wolf amongst the sheep,
At the bottom of the hill, but at the top of the street
Above the boulevard, schoolyard, victim of deceit
And you're runnin' hard, but this wolf is always at your feet
And you've seen it all before, but the wolf's outside your door
And you're old enough to run, you ain't hiding anymore
Another victim of the star spangled banner of the street
Now you're in the world of wolves
And we welcome all you sheep

Been to hell
I can show you the devil!
Down you fell
Can't hold yourself together!
Soul to sell
Down here you live forever!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Been to hell
I can show you the devil!
Down you fell
Can't hold yourself together!
Soul to sell
Down here you live forever!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Nightmares!
Welcome!

You need to wake up and face it,
So you can taste my reality
Now you're stuck in this place you hate,
And you came here so happily
Then it made you lose your faith,
And that's what fucked with your sanity
Say goodbye to your soul and say hello to your vanity
Hollywood is your friend, and the undead are your family
We'll take you to the edge, and turn your regret into agony
And I'll never let you go, 'cause I know you'll come back to me
I'm the reason you came here
I'm the American tragedy

Been to hell
I can show you the devil!
Down you fell
Can't hold yourself together!
Soul to sell
Down here you live forever!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Been to hell
I can show you the devil!
Down you fell
Can't hold yourself together!
Soul to sell
Down here you live forever!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Nightmares!
Welcome!

Welcome!
Welcome to a world where dreams become nightmares!
Welcome!

    General CommentThis song is about how people go to Hollywood with big dreams, only to have them be crushed by the nightmare that follows.

    Some of the lyrics in this song make me think that their profane party songs songs like "everywhere I Go", "Comin' in Hot", and "No. 5" are meant to be sarcastic, or at least the band doesn't see them as a good way to live.

    "Hollywood is your friend, and the undead are your family
    We'll take you to the edge, and turn your regret into agony
    And I'll never let you go, cuz I know you'll come back to me
    I'm the reason you came here...
    ...I'm the American tragedy"

    He's saying that it's the American Tragedy to be trapped in Hollywood with the undead.

    "Now you're stuck in this place you hate,
    And you came here so happily
    Then it made you lose your faith,
    And that's what fucked with your sanity"

    Almost seems like they're saying that losing your faith(I'm assuming it primarily means christian faith based on them mentioning Christianity in songs such as Paradise Lost) is a bad thing that messes with your sanity while you hate where you're at in life.

    Altogether, whether their party songs are sarcastic or not, this song make it very obvious that the partying is not worth how crappy it is to lose your soul, lose your faith, and live in streets that are dirty and dark.
