Our legs begin to break
We've walked this path for far too long
My lungs, they start to ache
But still we carry on
I'm choking on my words
Like I got a noose around my neck
I can't believe it's come to this
And dear, I fear
That this ship is sinking tonight

I won't give up on you
These scars won't tear us apart
So don't give up on me
It's not too late for us
And I'll save you from yourself
And I'll save you from yourself

Our legs begin to break
We've walked this path for far too long
My lungs begin to ache
But still we carry on
I'm choking on my words
Like I got a noose around my neck

I'm not coming home tonight
I'm not coming home tonight
'Cause dear I fear, dear I fear
I'm not coming home tonight
I'm not coming home tonight
'Cause dear I fear
This ship is sinking
Is there hope for us?
Can we make it out alive?
I can taste the failure on your lips
Is there hope for us?
Can we make it out alive?
I can taste the failure

Close your eyes
There's nothing we can do
But sleep in this bed that we made for ourselves
You're trapped in your past
Like it's six feet under

I won't give up on you
These scars won't tear us apart
So don't give up on me
It's not too late for us
I'll save you from yourself
I'll save you from yourself
I'll save you from yourself
I'll save you from yourself

Try to numb the pain
With alcohol and pills
But it won't repair your trust
You can't stand on two fucking feet
With a substance as a crutch

I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll play this symphony
I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll play this symphony of sympathy

I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll play this symphony of sympathy
I won't give up
I won't give up on you
We'll play this symphony of sympathy

    General CommentThis song is Incredible!
    I get the impression that its about a relationship that is sinking and theres somthing wrong with the girl "I'll save You From Yourself" and he doesn't want to let go or give up on her, and he doesn't want her to give up on him.
    "I won't give up on you
    These scars won't tear us apart
    So don't give up on me
    It's not too late for us"
    Perhaps he's done somthing wrong "But it won't repair your trust" and no matter you it wont help heal the get rid of the pain
    "Try to numb the pain
    With alcohol and pills"
    Awsome album!!!
    BMtH!!

    General CommentAlong the suicide theme, Vincent van Goghs suicide note had the words, "This sadness will last forever" pretty similar. Can't see any other similarities between the 2 tho

    General Commenti was skeptical of this album but after reading the lyrics and getting the meanings down - it's fucking good. 'substance as a crutch' bit is brilliant.

    Song MeaningI've heard that the singer oli's friend had her boyfriend die and she got suicidal and drug dependent, so he wrote the song about how he's been trying to help her but she keeps pushing him away and he doesn't know how he can help her now. hence the i won't give up on you, save you from yourself and the dull the pain parts.

    General CommentI think it's just about accepting failure of any type, perhaps also the certain sense of twisted comradery you get when failing with others, knowing you're going down together, etc.

    General Commenti also think its about failure
    but maybe trying anything to over come it?
    or not givin up on whats important

    whatever the meaning its definitly one of the best tracks they have written

    General CommentThis is my favourite song on the album and favourite song by them ever.

    It's clearly about a relationship where the girl that's fucked up.

    "Close your eyes
    There's nothing we can do
    But sleep in this bed that we made for ourselves
    You're trapped in your past
    Like it's six feet under"

    Her past has had a big influence on why she is how she is.

    "I won't give up on you
    These scars won't tear us apart
    So don't give up on me
    It's not too late for us
    I'll save you from yourself"
    Maybe she's tried killing herself?

    Like I've said in another comment, I think this album is about different kinds of suicide. Two about suicide notes, one about someone killing their friendship with a person, one about someone who knows somebody who killed themself and it fucked up their friend, etc.

    General Commenti agree with C0m4.Wh1t3
    hence the name of the album 'suicide season'
    in some way they are all about some sort of suicide/death

    General Commentdefinitely not like old BMTH. but so awesome. i bet they're gonna get crap for this, but i love it. bands are allowed to change their sound.

    but as for the meaning, i think it's pretty self-explanatory.
