Break out
Out

A billion lie
Severed patients spattered aisle
Whispers of dreams drown me now
Don't roll over play dead for a while
Pierce the vein
Lipstick wrapped in cellophane
Fire in the photographs,
Narcolepsy sell me out again

Daylight shines on me,
Burning up the enemy
Just you wait and see,
How much can you bleed

Wake me up
Compensate this bloody tongue
Travesty from underground
Don't roll over alone alone again
A billion lie
Severed patients spattered I'll
Whispers of dreams drown me now
Narcolepsy sell me out again

Daylight shines on me
Burning up the enemy
Just you wait and see
How much can you bleed

Daylight burn my eyes
Searing the despised
I'll play along everything is fine
He's swallowing a lie

Do we have contact, dont you take my
Do we have contact, dont you take my
Till we have contact, dont you take my
Till we have contact, dont you take my
Daylight
Daylight (burning up the enemy)
Daylight (burning up the enemy)
Daylight (burning up the enemy)
Daylight (burning up the enemy)

Daylight shines on me
Burning up the enemy
Just you wait and see
How much can you bleed

Daylight burn my eyes
Searing the despised
I'll play along everything is fine
Swallowing a lie

    General CommentThe correct lyrics:

    Breakdown!
    Down!

    A brilliant lie
    Severed patience
    Spectred isle
    Whispers haunting drown me now
    Don’t roll over
    Play dead for a while
    Pierce the vein
    Lipstick wrapped in cellophane
    Fire in the photographs
    Narcolepsy
    Sell me out again

    Daylight shines on me
    Burning up the enemy
    Just you wait and see
    How much can you bleed?

    Wake me up
    Compensate this bloody tongue
    Travesty from underground
    Don’t roll over alone or loaded gun

    A brilliant lie
    Severed patience
    Spectred isle
    Whispers haunting, drown me now
    Narcolepsy
    Sell me out again

    Daylight shines on me
    Burning up the enemy
    Just you wait and see
    How much can you bleed?
    Daylight burnt my eyes
    Searing the despised
    I’ll pray along everything is fine
    Swallowing the lie

    Do we have contact?
    Don’t you take mine
    Do we have contact?
    Don’t you take mine
    Do we have contact?
    Don’t you take mine
    Do we have contact?
    Don’t you take mine

    Daylight
    Daylight
    Daylight
    Daylight
    Daylight

    Daylight shines on me
    Burning up the enemy
    Just you wait and see
    How much can you bleed?
    Daylight burnt my eyes
    Searing the despised
    I’ll play along everything is fine
    Swallowing the lie

    General CommentI'm hearing "a brilliant lie." and I think it's "don't roll over alone a loaded gun."

    General CommentThey're great lyrics, very pretty and interesting, but I don't think there's any deep, hidden meaning behind them. It just seems like images to me.

    Anyway, the imagery of the song combined with the intense and energetic, yet vaguely melancholy feel to it makes me think of a duel with high stakes, like the final battle with the main enemy at the end of a movie/book/show/game whatever.

    I like imagining it to be about a hero (or more like an anti-hero type, but the main character all the same), who has to live in the dark because his enemies somehow cursed him so sunlight would hurt him for the rest of his life. Near the end of the story, he's standing on a hill in the middle of some kind of reddish-brown wasteland at dusk, and when just a little bit of sun is left on the horizon, he removed his cloak and a cloth that was covering his head and eyes. Then he looks over the land, and sees his enemy standing on a hill in the near distance. And I guess that's when the battle will begin. (But I kind of like the idea of the story ending there, it's interesting and open-ended.)

    If it did have a proper ending the hero would win (barely, plus I keep imagining that he was already injured when the scene began), but the curse would never be lifted, and he would live the rest of his days wandering under cover of darkness.

    (...What's that? I have an overactive imagination? Well, you'd be right, then!)
