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
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
Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves
Someone tell the heavens that I'm ready to escape
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
I'ts 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
Are we born to be broken, sinners, and thieves
Someone tell the heavens that I'm ready to escape
This is not what I wanted not what I need

    I think, that this song is about standing up to what you are doing, not blaming anything else. Cause in the end, we are resposible and cant blame everything else. Dont regret anything you do, cause in the end. It makes you who you are.

    I think that is the a military song because when must vets come back they look towards liguor more times then not and well the song says it the demons i've created for myself. He also does not want to face the truth.

    He is talking about how everyone has demons and whatever hell they may be in they created it for themselves and must live with it. Some turn to a bottle but he is saying that is no escape the only way to escape it is to ask forgiveness and to take it all rip it all away and tear it up. Its the only way to get away from the demons you have created for your self.

    I feel the song's meaning is looking back upon your past, realizing choices you regret and how hard they have been on not just you, but everyone.

    It also applies well to choices you are about to make and makes you think how would people react, how are people thinking currently, etc.

    I personally cried last night during this song.
