"Raised By Wolves" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, David Holdredge, Brian Ross and Ronnie Radke....
I was lost now I'm found,
I'm sustained by the sound,
Of the angels singing me to sleep,
While my feet are leaving the ground,
Am I dead? Or am I dreaming instead?
A cornucopia of opiates have flooded my head

I'm insane, I am smart,
All it takes, is a spark, to ignite my bad intentions,
And do what I do best to your heart,
Don't be fooled I was raised by the wolves,
Now the moon hangs in full, so you know I won't play by the rules

[Chorus]
I will never spill
(spill my blood for you)
You have let me down
(one too many times)
Someway somehow, we've fallen out,
Caught in between my enemies,
No way not now, I won't back down,
I draw the line at you and me,
Your what I started, now disregarded,
One day they'll see, it was always me

Due to mistakes, I have made to the state,
I am trapped inside a Dillinger,
Diligently thinking of ways to get out of this god awful place,
I have learned that my fate is something I can't escape so,
Sound the alarm, what I've said from the start,
Is ill never let your system break me down or tear me apart,
Don't be fooled I was raised by the wolves,
Now the moon hangs in full so you know I won't
Play by the rules

[Chorus]

Oh, this is the end of you
This is where I draw the line
And I won't lose
This war is mine
Oh

Spill my blood for you
One too many times

Someway somehow, we've fallen out,
Caught in between my enemies,
No way not now, I won't back down,
I draw the line at you and me,
Your what I started, now disregarded,
One day they'll see, it was always me.
One day they'll see,
It was always me
It was always me

    General CommentThis song is all about Ronnie, and his thoughts surrounding the recent events in his life.
    He claims Escape The Fate only became big because of him. And is nothing now without him.

    Now, my logic as to why Falling In Reverse will not last: Ronnie's the reason they've become big so quickly, and he knows it.

    "This war is mine."
    The war is not his band's. It is his. Ronnie is the center of attention, and the other band members are just accessories. I know he's a front man, and this is the case for many bands, but this just goes that further.
    As they get bigger, the other members will want more of the spotlight, but it will all be taken by Ronnie. They will have a falling out, and the band will break up.
    Don't get me wrong, he's a very talented man. But he's part of a band, he isn't a one-man show.

    Just my theory. :3

    PERFECT way to incorporate Escape the Fate in a song of retaliation.

    General CommentOne day they'll see, it was only me"

    This line shows that Escape the Fate was only good because of Ronnie

    "I draw the line between you and me"

    This shows that Ronnie is drawing the line between ETF

    "Your what I started, know what i disregarded"

    This shows that he started with them but quite

    "I was lost, i was bound, i was stained, i was bound, while the angels sing me to sleep" This shows about him in prison

    "This war is mine" Hes making fun of ETF

    The wolves are ETF

    General Comment"I just learned that my fate is something I cant escape" I see this as a reference to actual FATE. The band ETF the title stood for escaping fate and Ronnie may have tried to escape FATE, but just like Karma, Fate came back and bit him in the ass.

    General CommentThe perfect retaliation song... ETF-This War Is Ours. Ronnie- "This War Is Mine"
    Now I'm a fan of both bands, however Ronnie has just absolutely smacked ETF down xD
