"Crucify Me" as written by and Matthew Stephen Nicholls Jona Weinhofen....
Crucify me, nail my hands to a wooden cross.
There is nothing above, there is nothing below.
Heaven and Hell lives in all of us,
And I've been cast astray.

I am an ocean, I am the sea,
There is a world inside of me.
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep,
No set of rules could salvage me.
Only a shipwreck, only a ghost,
Merely a graveyard of your former self.
We just watched the waves crash over.
I've been cast astray.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(No one needs to know)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(No one needs to know)

I am an ocean, I am the sea,
There is a world inside of me.
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep,
No set of rules could salvage me.
Save yourself, save your breath,
The tides too strong, you'll catch your death.
So breathe for me, just breathe.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.

If we make it through the night, if I make it out alive,
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
And you say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me,
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

If we make it through the night, if I make it out alive,
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
And you say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me.
I fear I'm too far gone
Pray for the dead

Pray for the dead
Pray for the dead
Pray for the dead
Yeah

Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your full undivided attention?
There is something you all really need to know.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.

If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive.
You say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive.
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead,
You say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me

I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me

    General CommentJust pointing out that Lights is Lights - that is her legal name. She is not "The girl from Lights" Lights is not a band, Lights is a small Canadian girl

    General CommentThis song sounds to me like a denial of divine powers.

    "There is nothing above, there is nothing below
    Heaven and Hell lives in all of us"

    This seems like he is saying that humans decide themseves if they are evil and not a higher power.

    Now it is true that i am an active atheist so i may just hear what i want to hear but this is my take on the song.

    TranslationRough translation to Swedish (was made at 02:30 am so there may be mistakes (such as spelling because i'm probably dyslectic or w/e))

    Korsfäst mig och spika fast mina händer på ett kors av trä
    Det finns inget ovanför, det finns inget under
    Himmel och helvette bor i oss alla
    Och jag har gått vilse

    Jag är en ocean, jag är havet
    Det finns en värld inom mig
    Förlorad i avgrunden, drunknad i djupet
    Inga lungor kan rädda mig
    Bara ett skeppsbrott, Bara ett spöke
    Endast en kyrkogård för ditt förra jag
    Vi ser bara på när vågorna bryts över oss
    Vi kommer alla gå vilse

    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns en himmel, det blir våran hemlighet
    Ingen behöver veta
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns en himmel, det blir våran hemlighet
    Ingen behöver veta

    Jag är en ocean, jag är havet
    Det finns en värld inom mig
    Förlorad i avgrunden, drunknad i djupet
    Inga lungor kan rädda mig
    Rädda dig själv, spara dina andetag
    Floden är för stark, det blir din död
    Så andas för mig, bara andas

    Rough translation to Swedish:

    Korsfäst mig och spika fast mina händer på ett kors av trä
    Det finns inget ovanför, det finns inget under
    Himmel och helvette bor i oss alla
    Och jag har gått vilse

    Jag är en ocean, jag är havet

    Det finns en himmel, det blir våran hemlighet
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns en himmel, det blir våran hemlighet
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det

    Oh, om vi klarar oss genom natten
    Om vi klarar oss ut levande
    Må herren vara nådig och be för de döda
    Säger du att du kan rädda mig?
    Hoppas inte på att någonsin hitta mig
    Jag är rädd att jag är för långt borta
    Be för de döda


    Be för de döda
    Be för de döda
    Be för de döda
    Yeah!

    Mina damer och herrar, får jag be om eran fullständiga, odelade uppmärksamhet
    Det finns något ni alla verkligen behöver veta

    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns en himmel, det blir våran hemlighet
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det
    Det finns en himmel, det blir våran hemlighet
    Det finns ett helvette, Tro mig, jag har sett det

    Oh, om vi klarar oss genom natten
    Om vi klarar oss ut levande
    Säger du att du kan rädda mig?
    Hoppas inte på att någonsin hitta mig
    Jag är rädd att jag är för långt borta
    Be för de döda

    Oh, om vi klarar oss genom natten
    Om vi klarar oss ut levande
    Må herren vara nådig och be för de döda
    Säger du att du kan rädda mig?
    Hoppas inte på att någonsin hitta mig
    Jag är rädd att jag är för långt borta
    Be för de döda

    Jag är en ocean, jag är havet
    Det finns en värld inom mig x8

    General CommentI knew that the album title was derived from a song lyric, it's obvious. I was not looking forward to the album but this was the song I was looking most forward to. It's kind of a disappointment, they just song identical to suicide season. But the girl from lights is super hot and a good singer

    General CommentThese are the actual lyrics:

    Crucify me.
    And nail my hands to a wooden cross.
    There is nothing above, there's nothing below.
    Heaven and hell lives in all of us.
    And I've been cast astray.

    I'm an ocean, I'm the sea.
    There is a world inside of me.
    Lost in the abyss.
    Drowned in the deep.
    No set of lungs could salvage me.
    Only a shipwreck, only a ghost.
    Merely a graveyard of your former self.
    We just watch the waves crash over.
    There is Heaven (no one needs to know.)

    Save yourself.
    Save your breath.
    The tide's too strong.
    You'll catch your death.
    So breathe for me, just breathe.

    There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
    There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.

    If we make it through the night.
    If I make it out alive.
    Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
    You say that you can save me.
    Don't hope to ever find me.
    I fear I'm too far gone.
    Pray for the dead.

    Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your full and undivided attention?
    There's something you all really need to know.

    There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
    There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.

    I am the ocean.
    I am the sea.
    There is a world inside of me.
