"Tragic Magic" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, David Holdredge and Ronnie Radke....
I'm back
Ha ha ha ha ha

So let's rewind, back to the time, two thousand five, I almost died
I overdosed, I did not know, did I provoke this evil ghost?
Disaster

Magically
I turned tragedy
Into melodies
Sold for catchy beats
It comes so naturally
So smooth and casually
That's why they call me king
Of the music scene

La la la

La la la

La la la

La la la

La la la

La la la

I dug a hole
Ten miles wide
So I could throw all of you inside
You're such a dumb fuck
You need to shut up
You bring a picture of me every time you get a haircut
Impostor!

Magically
I turned tragedy
Into melodies
Sold for catchy beats
It comes so naturally
So smooth and casually
That's why they call me king
Of the music scene

La la la la

Bruised and broken
My eyes are open
I won't lose focus
My eyes are open
Can you see in the distance
Can you see the resistance

Magically
I turned tragedy
Into melodies
Sold for catchy beats
It comes so naturally
So smooth and casually
That's why they call me king
Of the music scene

Magically
I turned tragedy
Into melodies
Sold for catchy beats
It comes so naturally
So smooth and casually
That's why they call me king
Of the music scene

    Song Meaningok so this song has a couple meanings.when he says 'i dug a hole,ten miles wide,so i can throw all of you inside' hes talking about etf.when he says 'your such a dumb fuck,you need to shut up,you bring a picture of me everytime you get your hair cut imposter' hes talking about craig and how craig looked like ronnei when ronnie was in jail and also tht craig needs to shut up about all the crap he was saying when ronnie was in jail.the first verse is all about how he almost died becuz of drug overdose.he basicaly turns tragedys into melodies.and before you go thinking oh eonnies a arrogant,selfish,conceded,selfcenterd bastard. note that he wrote this song in jail so he still had mixed emotions.

    General CommentI'm not really into this song, I guess it's pretty obvious what this is about

    (That's why they call me king of the music scene)
    He's abit out of touch with reality...

    But still love Ronnie Radke, just some of he's lyrics are abit, cocky and not well written

    My OpinionI love ronnie but this song made me loose a bit of respect for him. I think he tried to make this song about how he over came everything that happend but it just came out as him being arrogant. Btw i think ronnie deserves a better band than the one he has the only reason FIR has made it is because of ronnies talent and amazing voice

    General CommentYou guys call yourselves fans? This song is about how Ronnie felt. If you call him arrogant than you are basically insulting his feelings. The only one who's right is tiffabear99. Watch this mofos youtube.com/…

    My OpinionPersonally I think this song was purposely suppose to sound arrogant. When he was with ETF and on drugs he probably was arrogant because he probably thought he had everything and nothing to lose. With out even purposely trying to think that way. Then when he lost everything and his best friends turned and a guy he had respect for started taking some shit, he had anger and everything. This song definitely shows he's back and that he's a new man. It's kind of like this is the chance to get all that arrogance out and begin with the passion of his music. Also have to remember this is the first album, it's going to be about all the feelings and emotions he felt when he truly spiraled out of control and landed himself in prison. It's going to be about what his fan's saw and said. Songs are stories, songs are memories, songs are life and most important songs are emotions, past, present and future. So again, I personally think and have a small gut feeling this was purposely fueled with arrogance, just show how he felt at first with that anger.
