I was born one morning in December
On the coldest day
Abandoned by my mother
Whom my father I was raised
My father raised my brother and I
With a stubborn heart
My mother left me her good looks and confident charm
Well I spent most of my teenage years
Searching for her love
I could not find it anywhere
So I turned to drugs
And after all the smoke had cleared
And it was said and done
I found myself addicted by the age of 21

I tell the truth
I've been beaten
I've been bruised
I was left for dead as well
I was wrongfully accused
You left me locked inside a cell.

I've been cheated
I've been sued
But I have lived to tell
The more you kick me when I'm down
The more it truly helps.

I feel the madness creeping slowly
Loved by many I'm still lonely
Paid the price for your mistake
The music died the day I walked away.

No, I wont let you win!
Not this time my friend,
You know that I'm better in the end.

No, you wont take my pride!
I'll keep my head held high.
Cause I know that I'm better in the end.

Woaaah,
I know you're jealous
And you wish you could be me
I'm so smart and clever with my lyrics can't you see?
There's nobody better in this Music Industry!
And in case you think you are, go ahead, give me a ring!

Woaaah
I deserve a purple heart
From all my fucking wounds!
Lacerations to my ego,
Pride that I consume.

And in your final hours
When you are looking back
You'll find that I'm the best at what I do
And that's a fact.

No, I wont let you win!
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end.

No, you wont take my pride!
I'll keep my head held high.
Cause I know that I'm better in the end.
And all got to say
(Do do do do do do do do, bah bah bah da,
Do do do do do do do do, la la la la la la)

Take it or leave it
But you best believe me it's true!
There's no mistaking, please stop thinking I'm through!
You know I'm better than you!

No, I wont let you win!
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better In the end.

No, you wont take my pride!
I'll keep my head held high
Cause I know that I'm better in the end.
In the end.
(Do do do do do do do do, bah bah bah da,
Do do do do do do do do, la la la la la la)

    I find the meaning here very clear. Ronnie has been thorugh so much in his life, and yet, he managed to turn it all around. He was , he was kicked out of his band, addicted, and he's been to jail. To me, ronnie is a truly amazing person. After all he's been thorugh he was smart enough to realize that it was wrong. He went and got help, he got clean, and still is. Ronnie is my hero. This song has so much heart put into it. It is one of my favorite falling in reverse songs becuase of all the meaning behind it. It truly tells a story. The story of his life. And it is amazing. :] keep it up ronnie.

    If you haven't found the meaning of the song, you haven't really listened to the song. The amazing lyrics will tell you exactly what he's trying to say. Just saying:)

    No, i mean. Yes, it is about his past, but its not as much about telling us about it, its convincing himself. He would have written this in jail. Having all that hate for etf and every one else... I guess this song in particular was a way to get stuff out and move on.
