"Misery" as written by and John William Feldmann Travis L Barker....
I'm a wreck, I'm out of time
I barely made it out alive
I'm not bent, I'm not cracked
I'm just broken
I watched the fire burn the sea
I wrapped my car around a tree
Hold me up, underneath
This heavy burden

There's a halo in the distance
Salvation's barely out of reach

Torn apart like the brokenhearted
Up in smoke with the fire we started
Misery loves company
I don't need anyone
Smash it up like there's no tomorrow
Leave me here with the fear and sorrow
Misery loves company
I don't need anyone

Tied up to a heart of stone
I screamed into a microphone
I burned the bridge, so I won't find my way home (find my way home)

Lay with me, I can't sleep
Misery loves company
When I'm bent, when I'm cracked
When I'm broken

There's a halo in the distance
Salvation's barely out of reach (out of reach)

Torn apart like the brokenhearted
Up in smoke with the fire we started
Misery loves company
I don't need anyone
Smash it up like there's no tomorrow
Leave me here with the fear and sorrow
Misery loves company
I don't need anyone

I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone

Fifteen times a night, when the sun's gone down
In the dark awake and you're not around
And the closest thought is the edge of oblivion
Fifteen times a day when you check your phone
And I won't be there and you're all alone
'Cause we always lived on the edge of oblivion
Left to find our way through a Hitchcock film
In an empty bed with an hour to kill
'Cause it's only fun on the edge of oblivion (oblivion)

Torn apart like the brokenhearted
Up in smoke with the fire we started
Misery loves company
I don't need anyone
Smash it up like there's no tomorrow
Leave me here with the fear and sorrow
Misery loves company
I don't need anyone

I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone
I don't need anyone

    My InterpretationI believe that this is a song about an incredibly difficult breakup that is hard to get over. They sing of some hope in the pre-chorus but they aren't there yet because they haven't healed yet I believe. They sing I don't need anyone because they know that they need to be alone to heal not make others unhappy as they are because that would be selfish. Lyric choice also suggests it's a messy breakup due to fire references and recklessness. Behaviour is also diturbed and disrupted from what one would consider normal and rational. The tone in which Matt especially reflects some helplessness and emotional pain due to the strain of just singing higher and his more shouty voice. Harmonies in the chorus help give a more desperate sound too. The low verse for Mark hitting more than an octave below middle C reflects in my eyes how low they feel.
    The bridge is sung towards the ex lover I believe and tells of how they are in a miserable pattern not helping potential depression I believe both parties are experiencing. The use of the word oblivion at the end of each 3 bridge sections highlights how perhaps there is nothing there, just numbness and the emptiness they feel inside.
    Overall this song to me expresses a deep depression brought on from a terrible breakup most likely but while they try there best to carry on and move on they feel like it's a lost cause as if there is no improvement or escape.
    You feel very sorry for them and feel their despair which I believe makes this song so good as you feel their pain through the music so well
