Urrgggh!

Here I am, once again. Just like a pack of wolves.
The skies were once paved with gold, now they rain on us all.
I've made my bed, so I'll lie in it.
I've dug my grave so I'll die in it.

"Tell all my friends I said goodbye, lenched teeth and fluttering eyes"
I can't go on like this.
"Tell all my friends I said goodbye, lenched teeth and fluttering eyes"
I can't go on like this.

Just like the living dead, I've got a taste for something.
And I don't want it, I just need it.
And I can't believe that it's getting harder just to feel alive.
It's getting harder just to feel alive.

Curtains close; take a bow. I think we fooled all of them now.
Who you are, what you say, what you do each and every single day.
I've made my bed, so I'll lie in it.
I've dug my grave, so God help me die in it.

Just like the living dead, I've got a taste for something.
And I don't want it, I just need it.
And I can't believe that...
Just like the living dead, I've got a taste for something.
And I don't want it, I just need it.
And I can't believe that...

And I dug my grave, so I'll lie in it. (Lie in it, lie in it)
I've made my bed, so I'll die in it. (Die in it)
I dug my grave
I dug my grave

I'd rather live, than live forever!

I'm knocking on Death's door, but you're already dead.
It's either now, or fucking never.
And that night, we meant every word we said.
All I can say...
All I can say for sure is, we're coming out tonight.
All I can say for sure is, we're coming up tonight.

Just like the living dead,
Just like the living dead,
Just like the living dead, I've got a taste for something.
And I don't want it, I just need it.
And I can't believe that...

Just like the living dead, I've got a taste for something.
And I don't want it, I just need it.
And I can't believe that...
Just like the living dead, I've got a taste for something.
And I don't want it, I just need it.
And I can't believe that it's getting harder just to feel alive.
It's getting harder just to feel alive.

    General Commentdrugs huh?
    actually, I don't think it's about drugs.
    Based on alot of the things Oli says,
    I think this song is totally bashing christianity.

    When it says the skies were once paved gold, and it rains on us all, i noticed that this is most likely referring to heaven. Because, ofcourse, heaven is in the sky, and it's streets are paved gold. I'm not sure what the rest of it means, and it rains on us all.

    "and i dont want it, i just need it.
    and i cant believe that its getting harder just to feel alive.
    curtains close- take a bow. i think we fooled all of them now.
    who you are, what you say, what you do each and every single day."

    At the beginning when it says,
    I don't need it, I want it.
    he's probably quoting how he views christianity and how people say they need it, as much as they dont enjoy the restrictions of christianty.

    He says I can't believe it's getting harder to just feel alive. When he says this he talking about Christians refer to being alive as being sinless, and the more we sin, the harder it is to feel alive.

    He says "curtains close take a bow. i think we fooled all of them now.
    who you are, what you say, what you do each and every single day"
    ofcourse, if this is about bashing christianity, he's saying that christians are fake and always put up a show, and what they say is just influenced by artificial happiness.

    He says,
    I'D RATHER LIVE THAN LIVE FOREVER.
    Christianity is based upon living forever with christ when you believe in him and follow. He's saying that when you try to follow the beliefs of christianity, there are so many restrictions you have to obey, that you can't really enjoy living out a life. So he says he would rather live the life he has, then "live forever" as in, live with many restrictions.

    I dont like saying all this,
    because im a christian.
    but i really dont think Oli wrote this about drugs.
    I'm thinking he probably wrote alot of things to make it sound like he was writing it about drugs,
    but the lyrics point more towards deeper things.

    General Comment"I'D RATHER LIVE, THAN LIVE FOREVER"
    i think that lyric explains a lot about the song.
    i'm not really feeling the new video but I love how they've changed.
    their lyrics are different too! it's no longer like "I HOPE YOU DIE YOU FUCKING BITCH!!!" (not really one of their lyrics but yeah)
    it actually has more of a meaning behind it than just wanting to kill an ex.girlfriend.
    i like the new style, but it'll take me a while to get used to.

    General CommentWell, yeah, it COULD be about drugs. It could just be about addiction in general. I'm not dissing your interpretation, just voicing my own.

    Just resigning themself to this addiction, realising theres nothing they can do to resolve the situation, nor do they particularly want to.

    General Commentfirst comment again =D this song is about drugs the song name the comedown, coming off drugs, iv my my bed ill lie in it, i think its about him using just lying there , iv dug my grave so ill die in it , i think it's him saying he's killing him self with the drugs, just like the living dead iv got a taste for somthing, he,s saying needs drugs to live, Curtains close; take a bow. I think we fooled all of them now.
    Who you are, what you say, what you do each and every single day. i think he's saying he's making people think he's a normal guy but behind there backs he's a differant person. And the music video is saying having a night out partying taking drugs in the moring u feel like shit ig predator and when he goes to that place with the other people with mr bloby its like he's goin to rehab and last id rather live than live forever say he rather party have a good time thanks for reading if u made it this far =D
