"Hypocrite" as written by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor and Lincoln Parish....
Tonight
Bleeding from the holes in my face
But I don't wanna give it away
You did it for the family name
Crash collide in to space
You
Your favorite color red
I guess that I'm the hypocrite
You're not responsible
I'm responsible

Who's to blame
Tell me who's to blame
Tell me who

I don't wanna do that again
I've been all over the place
I watched the strawberry fields
Dry up and wither away
And if you ask me to stay
You know that's where I will be
Don't wanna do that again
I'll never do that again

You
You call me baby blue
For all the evil schemes I pull
You sit and watch the waves break
I made a lot of mistakes
Crash collide in to space

Who's to blame
Tell me who's to blame
Tell me who

I don't wanna do that again
I've been all over the place
I watched the strawberry fields
Dry up and wither away
And if you ask me to stay
You know that's where I will be
Don't wanna do that again
I'll never do that again

Aaahoo
Aaahoo

I don't wanna do that again
I've been all over the place
I watched the strawberry fields
Dry up and wither away
And if you ask me to stay
You know that's where I will be
Don't wanna do that again
I'll never do that again

Aaahoo
Aaahoo

    My InterpretationMaybe I'm stating the obvious but I hear this as a person talking to an abusive parent. They blame themselves for the abuse because of something they did wrong, after being conditioned into thinking this way. Logically, they know it's not their fault but they're just not sure what they buy anymore. They also can't blame the abuser for mistakes because they've messed up too in their life, so that would make them a "hypocrite."
    "Your favorite color red
    I guess that I'm the hypocrite
    You're not responsible
    I'm responsible"
    Also it could be about domestic abuse, because later in the song the person talks about staying. They might feel like their love for their partner it greater than their drive for self-preservation.
