(Everyone who thinks I'm a drunk piece of shit put thier hands up, this one goes out too you)
Yeah

Go

You're fuckin' crazy, if you think that I'll ever change
I am I, I am me, I'll never change my ways
I'm a monster and that's how i'll stay
Condemned to predetermined damnation for eternity
Damnation for eternity

I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care
Don't you dare, pray for me, no
There's things I bury inside, to keep away from the light
Don't you dare, pray for me

I've been so far gone for so long
And I can't keep my head up out the bottle
Holy fuck, why do I bother
I'm never gonna get any better
I've waited so long to declare
"I don't give a fuck if I die today"
Holy shit, I've lost my mind
Reality, is starting to unwind

Don't pray for me

I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care
Don't you dare, pray for me, no
There's things I bury inside, to keep away from the light
Don't you dare, pray for me

I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care
Don't you dare, pray for me, no
There's things I bury inside, to keep away from the light
Don't you dare, pray for me

    There are two sides of Danny being shown in the song. The first verse is saying: "I'm a drunk, this is what I do, this is how it's going to stay. I know I'm making bad choices, but I'm okay with the consequences." He's talking himself out of going into rehab claiming he doesn't have a problem because he's fine with whats going on. The second verse is him most likely in a rehab program and basically saying, "This is a waste of my time, I can't beat this, I might as well quit." He doesn't want to be pitied, as expressed by him saying, "Don't pray for me." Because he knows deep down that he's the cause of all of this, and he alone needs to fix it, and if he fails and ultimately dies or loses his career , he doesn't want people to feel sorry for him, hence "I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care."
