"Enjoy the View" as written by William Roy Francis, Nicholas Alexander Wiggins, Angel Dejesus Ibarra, Jacob Wambold and Jacob Samuel Davison....
Tied off quick,
Looked around,
Plunge it in,
Pull it out.

I have found a fast solution to the pain.
Painted walls, melt away, am I a ghost?
Decide to stay.
I am shooting my solution in the rain.

We're all dead now!
Death will make you dream past tense,
Your hopes fly high and your life make sense.
(Sleep now, dream forever. Sleep now, dream tonight.)

Stay up late, enjoy the view.
Sing with me, die with you.
Come make my dreams come true.
This high up we start to fade and watch the night turn into day.

Breaking high,
We hold forever-changing hearts of gold.
Injection filled with contempt,
I was fine when we met.

Your reflection hides protected eyes of regret.
We're all dead now!
Death will make you dream past tense,
Your hopes fly high and your life make sense.

(Sleep now, dream forever. Sleep now, dream tonight.)
Sunrise before, as we wash ashore,
Now take us from this life, walk alone tonight.
We're all dead now.

Death will make you dream past tense,
Your hopes fly high and your life make sense.
(Sleep now, dream forever. Sleep now, dream tonight.)

    General Commentwell, if we ignore the whole 'tie off quick look around plunge it in pull it out' heroin thing, and look at the chorus instead, 'death will make you dream past tense' then its saying that when you die you're going to dream of your life and finally you'll realise the point of your life, the meaning of life as it were.
    I love this song XD

    General CommentI think it means that once your dead or once you loose something you realize how wonderful it was. Like sjmarshy said you'll realize the point of life when you die. The beginning lines make me think of heroin, and it also seems like a suicide song.

    General Commentto me the first chorus is definatly about getting high on something... it seems to me when the backup vocals scream "We’re all dead now !!" it means that friends mean nothing to you when you high. once u get high u only care about you or your next fix..

    General Comment^ yeah, i think this song is about not always realising what you should of done with your life till its over.
    "Your reflection hides protected eyes of regret.
    We’re all dead now !!" ---meaning that if you dont fulfil your life you will regret things and it will be too late because you will be dead.

    General CommentStay up late, enjoy the view. Sing with me, die with you. (( being around me may not be very good for your mental health??? just an idea))
    Come make my dreams come true. ( maybe he can't make the things he wants to do owrk out, and reaches for other to help))
    This high up we start to fade and watch the night turn into day.
    Breaking high, we hold forever-changing hearts of gold. (( their hearts may be pure, along with their intentions, but the motives may be changing))
    Injection filled with contempt, I was fine when we met. (( someone got him hooked?))
    Your reflection hides protected eyes of regret.
    We’re all dead now !! (( some is masking their real self))


    amazing song, really catchy...

    General CommentTied off quick, looked around, plunge it in, pull it out.

    [^_^ i'm definitely thinking this is a reference to herion or some type of drugs.]

    Death will make you dream past tense, your hopes fly high and your life make sense.

    [I think someone else mentioned this but I think it's about once you die you realize how many things you wish you would have done or, in this case, things you wish you wouldn't have done (drugs, etc.)]


    Sleep now, dream forever, Sleep now, dream tonight.

    [I think this is basically saying that once you die you dream forever. This makes the chorus make a lot more sense, you probably dream about your life forever. If you have forever to watch your own life things would start to make sense. ("your life makes sense once again")]

    Stay up late, enjoy the view. Sing with me, die with you.
    Come make my dreams come true.

    [This part confuses me, but maybe he's saying someone in a band he has been is got him involved with drugs? I don't know, the "sing with me, die with you" part confuses me :S. This song may not even be about true events so it's hard to say.]

    This high up we start to fade and watch the night turn into day.
    Breaking high, we hold forever-changing hearts of gold.

    [Again it's referring to the effects of being high]

    Injection filled with contempt,

    [He hates the fact that he's doing drugs and he hates the drugs themselves but he's addicted to them and can't stop. Maybe?]

    I was fine when we met.

    [I agree with whoever said someone he met got him into drugs.]

    Your reflection hides protected eyes of regret.
    We’re all dead now!!

    [Hm, i'm kinda thinking something along the lines of the person doesn't even know who they really are and the drugs have completely destroyed how their life was before all of this and all the person has left is his/her reflection?]

    Sunrise before, as we wash ashore, now take us from this life, walk alone tonight.
    We’re all dead now.

    [I think this part represents the persons acutal death]

    General CommentAs a heroin addict I'd like to share my thoughts on this song:

    Tied off quick, looked around, plunge it in, pull it out.

    (When you inject heroin you tie something around your injection site to cut off circulation. You then put the needle in, inject, and then take it out)


    I have found a fast solution to the pain.
    (Heroin is a VERY FAST solution to pain. When you shoot it hits you almost instantly)

    Painted walls, melt away, am I a ghost ? Decide to stay.
    (Sometimes if you get high enough you can actually trip off of heroin. Walls can melt away and you dissappear into your own head. I'm not sure about the decide to stay part)

    I am shooting my solution in the rain.
    (Duh)
    We�re all dead now !!
    (There was an article written in the 60s by the government about how chooising the life of a heroin addict is choosing to be one of the "living dead")

    Death will make you dream past tense, your hopes fly high and your life make sense.
    (Sleep now, dream forever, Sleep now, dream tonight.)

    (I don't know here, I guess I agree with everyone else about dying and then watching your life over again. But what if we're all already dead and watching it now? I don't know)

    Stay up late, enjoy the view. Sing with me, die with you.
    (Staying up late and enjoying the view are two things heroin will do to you. You'll stay up and enjoy how messed up you get, especially at night. Sing with me die with you I think is perhaps about how joyous heroin is, but how much it kills you as well.

    Come make my dreams come true.
    (When you're in withdrawal you think of nothing but heroin)

    This high up we start to fade and watch the night turn into day.
    ("Fading" is a term for getting so doped up on any opiate that you almost pass out. Watch the night turn into day has happened to me many times as you just keep getting high over the night.

    Breaking high, we hold forever-changing hearts of gold.
    Injection filled with contempt, I was fine when we met.
    (Injection filled with contempt is pretty obvious to me shooting up but how much you hate yourself for doing it. I think he's saying he was fine before he met heroin.

    Your reflection hides protected eyes of regret.
    (If you get messed up enough you can mask your pain)
    We�re all dead now !!
    (Heroin can turn you into almost a zombie when you're high, and your life is meaningless and dead anyways because you don't care about anything else.)

    Death will make you dream past tense, your hopes fly high and your life make sense.
    (Sleep now, dream forever, Sleep now, dream tonight.)

    Sunrise before, as we wash ashore, now take us from this life, walk alone tonight.
    We�re all dead now.

    Death will make you dream past tense, your hopes fly high and your life make sense.
    (Sleep now, dream forever, Sleep now, dream tonight.)

    Any parts I didn't go over are obviously parts I don't get. It just seems to be this song is definitely about shooting heroin there's so many slangs and cues that I recognize, especially when he used the term "fade". ex "Dude I'm so faded right now."
