"The Drug In Me Is You" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, David Holdredge and Ronnie Radke....
I heard a knock upon my door the other day
I opened it to find death staring in my face
The feel of mortal stalking still reverberates
Everywhere I go I drag this coffin just in case

My bodies tremblin' sends shivers down my spine
Adrenaline kicks and shifts into overdrive,
Your secrets keep you sick your lies keep you alive
Snake eyes every single time you roll with crooked dice
I felt the darkness as it tried to pull me down
The kind of dark that haunts a hundred year old house
I wrestle with my thoughts I shook the hand of doubt
Running from my past I'm praying feet don't fail me now!

I've lost my god damn mind,
It happens all the time,
I can't believe I'm actually
Meant to be here,
Trying to consume,
The drug in me is you
And I'm so high on misery
Can't you see!

I got these questions always running through my head
So many things that I would like to understand
If we are born to die and we all die to live
Then what's the point of living life if it just contradicts?
I felt the darkness as it tried to pull me down
The kind of dark that haunts a hundred year old house
I wrestle with my thoughts I shook the hand of doubt
Running from my past I'm praying feet don't fail me now!

I've lost my god damn mind
It happens all the time
I can't believe I'm actually
Meant to be here
Trying to consume,
The drug in me is you
And I'm so high on misery
Can't you see!

I've lost
Myself
You tried to reach me but you just can't help me
So long
Goodbye
You tried to save me it wont work this time!

'Cause now
I've lost my fucking mind
And there's no fucking time
I can't believe I'm actually
Meant to be here
Trying to consume,
The drug in me is you
And I'm so high on misery
Can't you see?
Oh can't you see?
Can't you see?

    General CommentThis song is awesome, it's already one of my favorites.

    I'd say, based on the video, is that it's about when he realized he was going to be sent to jail due to his drug addiction. "I can't believe I'm actually meant to be here," makes me think that for some reason.

    I don't know who the drug in him is, though. lol

    General CommentGreat song. The meaning I think is just about a guy, maybe Ronnie, who feels like he's just lost the good fight.

    General CommentI think the song is about ronnie's experience in prison. Not just based on the video, but also on an interview from las Vegas weekly that was given while Ronnie was in prison. He mentions in the interview that he faced death everywhere he turned in prison, and you really had to man up. This is explained in the first few lines. Especially the line, "everywhere I go I drag this coffin just in case." as for "snake eyes everytime you roll with crooked dice." is he couldnt get away with having to go to jail at all. The darkness he talks about may be prison, or it could be his past that haunts over him. He runs from his past as in the drugs and the fight. He talks about how he lost himself and his mind in the drugs and he's trying to get out of it. And he stated in the interview that he didn't deserve to be in jail, but he deserved to be there for karmic purposes for what he's done in his past. "i can't believe I'm actually meant to be here."

    My InterpretationThough I think Ronnie intended for this song to be about his experience in prison, I have interpreted it in a different way.
    This song may be about a girl who he's in love with, but she's unknowingly hurting him (whether it's not answering calls, not seeing him often, etc.). She's like a drug to him- when he's with her, he feels amazing and great, but when he's not with her it's like their relationship is falling apart. This drives him to want to kill himself, because he doesn't want to leave her, but it hurts him too much to stay with her. He questions why he has to be making this decision. He's trying to run from his past with her and start again, but he loves her too much to go. In the end, the girl realizes that she's hurting him and tries to apologize, but it's already too late. He's lost his mind, and tries to kill himself.

    General CommentI think this song is definitely about his experiences in prison. I think you guys are half right. The lines about the coffin and the dice make me feel like he had to man up in prison and expect trouble and he felt like he was facing death, but i also think, from the video and the lyrics that maybe there was a girl that helped him and was there for him and loved him, but couldn't help him. So he had to help himself and maybe change, he was running from his past and hopes it doesn't catch up with him. Maybe It's just about making a fresh start and putting it behind him.

    My Interpretationthis song basicaly means from what i get from it is that when he says the drug in me is you i think hes talking about a girl since theres a girl in the video and when he says 'im so high on misery' hes sad that his girl is not in his life

    My InterpretationI think it's just about how a guy likes a girl and shit. If it was about prison, why would the song be titled,"The drug in me is you?" Maybe the music video was just making it about prison because he was just in prison or what not.

    General CommentRonnie said in a recent interview that it's about him looking into a mirror and saying all of these things to himself.
