"The Tragic Truth" as written by Zoltan Bathory, Ivan Moody, Thomas Jason Grinstead, Jeremy Spencer and Kevin Churko....
I'm drowning in the bottom of a bottle.
Running from a man I swore I'd never be.
No one ever has to face tomorrow.
But I'm the one that has to face me.

It's the demons I've created for myself.
The tragic truth.
It's hard for me to understand myself.
So it has to be hard as hell for you! (For you! You!)

Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves?
Someone tell the heavens I'm ready to escape! (You!)
This is not what I wanted not what I need!
Take it all, tear it all, rip it all away!

I can't say the Devil made me do it.
I chose to be the one I am, the way I am today.
I wish there was but there's no way around it.
In the end I made the choice and will not die ashamed.

It's the voices screaming in my head.
The tragic truth.
It's hard for me to understand myself.
So it has to be hard as hell for you! (You! You!)

Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves?
Someone tell the heavens I'm ready to escape! (You!)
This is not what I wanted not what I need!
Take it all, tear it all, rip it all away!
Take it all, tear it all, take it all, tear it all away!

Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves?
Someone tell the heavens I'm ready to escape! (You!)
This is not what I wanted not what I need!
Take it all, tear it all, rip it all away! (Away!)

Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves?
Someone tell the heavens I'm ready to escape! (You!)
This is not what I wanted not what I need!
Take it all, tear it all, rip it all away!
Take it all, tear it all, rip it all, tear it all! (It all away)
Someone tell the heavens to take it all, tear it all away!

    General Comment“I'm drowning in the bottom of a bottle
    Running from a man I swore I'd never be
    No one ever has to face tomorrow
    But I'm the one who has to face me”

    Seems like he is stressing out over trying not to live a double standard life that comes with fame and fortune, and that people have a choice about what they go through in life, but that he has to live with the decisions he has made.

    “Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves
    Someone tell the heavens I'm ready to escape (YOUUU)
    This is not what I wanted not what I need
    Take it all, Tear it all
    Rip it all away”

    Seems like he is asking god if we are all born for evil; that he is ready for all the pain to go away and to finally be at ease, that this is not the life he had dreamt about leading and for god to take it all away.

    “I can't say the Devil made me do it
    I chose to be the one I am, the way I am today
    I wish there was but there's no way around it
    In the end I made the choice and will not die ashamed
    It’s the voices screaming in my head
    The tragic truth”

    He is saying that there is no one else to blame but himself for the way his life turned out, (I can't say the Devil made me do it, I chose to be the one I am, the way I am today); that he will not regret the decisions that he has made in the past just because the outcome from them was shitty, the only thing that bothers him is the memory of the fact, or (The Tragic Truth).

    “It’s hard for me to understand myself
    So it has to be hard as hell for you
    You (YOUUU)”

    Sort of self-explanatory, seems like the song is an epiphany coming to the singer as he is singing it. He describes the problem, that he is not satisfied with the way his life has turned out and that is dragging him down, he realizes that no one is perfect and he should not lead a life of regrets, so he decides to rise above his problem and accept his life as it is.
