I was born one morning in December
On the coldest day
Abandoned by my mother
By 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 twenty one

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 won't let you win
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end
No, you won't take my pride
I'll keep my head held high
'Cause I know that I'm better in the end

Woah,
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

Woah
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 won't let you win
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end
No, you won't 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 won't let you win
Not this time my friend
You know that I'm better in the end
No, you won't 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)
