"The Westerner" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, David Holdredge and Ronnie Radke....
I was born one morning in December
On the coldest day
Abandoned by my mother
By my father I was raised
My father raised my brother and I
With a stubborn heart
My mother left me her good looks and confident charm

Well I spent most of my teenage years
Searching for her love
I could not find it anywhere
So I turned to drugs
And after all the smoke had cleared
And it was said and done
I found myself addicted by the age of twenty one

I tell the truth
I've been beaten
I've been bruised
I was left for dead as well
I was wrongfully accused
You left me locked inside a cell

I've been cheated
I've been sued
But I have lived to tell
The more you kick me when I'm down
The more it truly helps

I feel the madness creeping slowly
Loved by many, I'm still lonely
Paid the price for your mistake
The music died the day I walked away

No, I won't let you win
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end
No, you won't take my pride
I'll keep my head held high
'Cause I know that I'm better in the end

Woah,
I know you're jealous
And you wish you could be me
I'm so smart and clever with my lyrics can't you see?
There's nobody better in this music industry
And in case you think you are, go ahead, give me a ring

Woah
I deserve a purple heart
From all my fucking wounds
Lacerations to my ego
Pride that I consume

And in your final hours
When you are looking back
You'll find that I'm the best at what I do
And that's a fact

No, I won't let you win
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end
No, you won't take my pride
I'll keep my head held high
'Cause I know that I'm better in the end
And all got to say
(Do do do do do do do do, bah bah bah da,
Do do do do do do do do, la la la la la la)

Take it or leave it
But you best believe me it's true
There's no mistaking, please stop thinking I'm through
You know I'm better than you

No, I won't let you win
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end
No, you won't take my pride
I'll keep my head held high
'Cause I know that I'm better in the end
In the end
(Do do do do do do do do, bah bah bah da,
Do do do do do do do do, la la la la la la)

    My InterpretationI was born one morning in December
    On the coldest day
    *self explanatory
    Abandoned by my mother
    By my father I was raised
    My father raised my brother and I
    With a stubborn heart
    *telling us he was raised harshly by his dad
    My mother left me her good looks and confident charm
    *explaining his mother and letting us know she left confindently knowing she could get someone.

    Well I spent most of my teenage years
    Searching for her love
    I could not find it anywhere
    So I turned to drugs
    And after all the smoke had cleared
    And it was said and done
    I found myself addicted by the age of twenty one
    *self explantory

    I tell the truth
    I've been beaten
    I've been bruised
    I was left for dead as well
    I was wrongfully accused
    You left me locked inside a cell
    *to his band escape the fate (MAX GREEN I HATE YOU) they kicked him out of the band for drug abuse and he was going to jail for something they did

    I've been cheated
    I've been sued
    But I have lived to tell
    The more you kick me when I'm down
    The more it truly helps
    *in jail he was brusied and broken, Max was still rude and an asshole and was mean to Ronnie

    I feel the madness creeping slowly
    Loved by many, I'm still lonely
    *his fans love him, but his mom is still gone and Max left him
    Paid the price for your mistake
    *escape the fate got in a fight and teh guy ended up dying and ROnnie went to die for it
    The music died the day I walked away
    *when he walked away from escape the fate the band wasnt popular because he was the best in it

    No, I won't let you win
    Not this time my friend
    You know that I'm better in the end
    No, you won't take my pride
    I'll keep my head held high
    'Cause I know that I'm better in the end
    *hes saying hes better than all the escape the fate

    Woah,
    I know you're jealous
    And you wish you could be me
    I'm so smart and clever with my lyrics can't you see?
    There's nobody better in this music industry
    And in case you think you are, go ahead, give me a ring
    *hes saying look what he can do and hes very confident about his lyrics and its basically self xplaintory

    Woah
    I deserve a purple heart
    From all my fucking wounds
    Lacerations to my ego
    Pride that I consume
    *purple heart is from a miltary and hes saying he feels like hes been in a wat

    And in your final hours
    When you are looking back
    You'll find that I'm the best at what I do
    And that's a fact
    *saying ETF will look back on them losing aronnie and think as a mistake

    No, I won't let you win
    Not this time my friend
    You know that I'm better in the end
    No, you won't take my pride
    I'll keep my head held high
    'Cause I know that I'm better in the end
    And all got to say
    ****i already did this...

    Take it or leave it
    But you best believe me it's true
    There's no mistaking, please stop thinking I'm through
    You know I'm better than you
    *self explantory

    No, I won't let you win
    Not this time my friend
    You know that I'm better in the end
    No, you won't take my pride
    I'll keep my head held high
    'Cause I know that I'm better in the end
    In the end
