"Bite My Tongue" as written by Chris Miller, Max Helyer, Josh Franceschi, Matt Barnes and Dan Flint....
I hate to break it to you but
You're just a lonely star
I try to bring you down but
A level isn't good enough
You always do as you believe so
I'm gonna fall asleep
And take a seat
And watch you fall apart
'Cause in the end
What are you without me?
I slow this down 'cause I know that you can't keep up
Oh baby I, maybe I was alone from the start
I might be proud, but at least I'm proud of something
You've taken pride in becoming nothing

You keep me on the edge of my seat
I bite my tongue so you don't hear me
I wanna hate every part of you with me
I can't hate the ones who made me

You keep me on the edge of my seat
I bite my tongue so you don't hear me
I wanna hate every part of you with me
I can't hate the ones who made me

I'm married to the music
For better or for worse
You say that I'm privileged but
Your gift is my curse
I can't recall the last time
Someone asked me how I was
Well deject I was a fucking wreck
But my help can only shoot us
I sit in the dirt

You keep me on the edge of my seat
I bite my tongue so you don't hear me
I wanna hate every part of you with me
I can't hate the ones who made me

You keep me on the edge of my seat
I bite my tongue so you don't hear me
I wanna hate every part of you with me
I can't hate the ones who made me

Just forget what you've learned
Just forget what you've heard
The truth just confirmed
I can't bare the sight of you anymore.
You've become what I hate
Sold yourself for a bit of fame
Now that the wolves have closed the door
You wanna drag me down some more
Fuck you
Fuck you

You keep me on the edge of my seat
I bite my tongue so you don't hear me
I wanna hate every part of you with me
I can't hate the ones who made me

You keep me on the edge of my seat
I bite my tongue so you don't hear me
I wanna hate every part of you with me
I can't hate the ones who made me

    General CommentReal lyrics:

    I hate to break it to you but, you're just a lonely star
    I ty to bring you down but, our level isnt good enough
    You always do as you please, so im going to follow suit and take a seat
    Watch you fall apart, cause in the end what are you without me?
    I'll slow this down cause i know that you cant keep up
    Oh maybe i maybe i was wrong from the start
    I might be proud, but at least I'm proud of something
    You've taken pride in becoming nothing

    (chorus)
    You keep me on the edge of my seat
    I bite my tongue so you dont hear me
    I wanna hate every part of you in me
    I cant hate the ones who made me

    I'm married to the music, for better or for worse
    You say that I'm privileged, but my gift is my curse
    I cant recall the last time someone asking how i was
    Last i checked i was a fucking wreck, i called for help and no one showed up
    so i sit in the dirt

    (chorus)

    (oli sykes)
    Just forget what you've learned
    Just forget what you've heard
    The truth should come first
    I cant bear the sight of you anymore
    You've become what i hate
    Sold yourself for a bit of fame
    Now the wolves have closed their doors
    You wanna drag me down some more
    Fuck you

    (chorus)

    General CommentOkay I got the CD today early! :D Here is what I can make out :)

    I hate to break it to you but,
    You're just a lonely star,
    I try to bring you down but,
    A level isn't good enough.
    You always do as you believe so,
    I'm gonna fall asleep,
    And take a seat,
    And watch you fall apart,
    'Cause in the end,
    What are you without me?
    I slow this down 'cause I know that you can't keep up,
    Oh maybe I, maybe I was alone from the start,
    I might be proud, but atleast im proud of something,
    You've taken pride in becoming nothing.

    You keep me on the edge of my seat,
    I bite my tongue so you don't hear me,
    I wanna hate every part of you with me,
    I can't hate the ones who made me.

    You keep me on the edge of my seat,
    I bite my tongue so you don't hear me,
    I wanna hate every part of you with me,
    I can't hate the ones who made me.

    Im married to the music,
    For better or for worse,
    You say that I preach? ???
    Your gift is my curse.
    I can't recall the last time,
    Someone asked me how I was,
    Wrote the check towards to the fucking record,
    But my help can only _____ us.
    Oh I sit in the truth?

    You keep me on the edge of my seat,
    I bite my tongue so you don't hear me,
    I wanna hate every part of you with me,
    I can't hate the ones who made me.

    You keep me on the edge of my seat,
    I bite my tongue so you don't hear me,
    I wanna hate every part of you with me,
    I can't hate the ones who made me.

    (Oli Sykes)
    Just forget what you've learned,
    Just forget what you've heard,
    The truth just confirmed,
    I can't bare the sight of you anymore.
    You've become what I hate,
    Sold yourself for a bit of fame,
    Now that the wolves have closed the door,
    You wanna drag me down some more..
    Fuck you.

    Fuck you.

    You keep me on the edge of my seat,
    I bite my tongue so you don't hear me,
    I wanna hate every part of you with me,
    I can't hate the ones who made me.

    You keep me on the edge of my seat,
    I bite my tongue so you don't hear me,
    I wanna hate every part of you with me,
    I can't hate hate the ones who made me.

    Well this is what I could make out by listening to the song a fair few times, this song is amazing! :D There was a few parts that I wasn't so sure about so I hope someone can correct it :P Remember that this is what I could make out by ear.. >.<

    General CommentPerhaps it's about a guy/girl who is anxious to see someone fail. He is angry...feeling put off by her and he wants his revenge. He's unhappy at this time and blames her for his problems. What once drew him to her is what he now hates/resents. Her presence in his life is 'dragging' him down, or so he feels. The "bite my tongue" part is perhaps him sitting back as she fails; he'd like to tell her to F off, but he's content with his sideline seat. A very angry song, but a good one.

    My InterpretationI think this is about the music industry and how messed up it is. For instance when it says:

    "I might be proud, but atleast im proud of something,
    You've taken pride in becoming nothing."

    "I wanna hate every part of you in me
    I cant hate the ones who made me"

    "You've become what i hate
    Sold yourself for a bit of fame"

    That's just my perception.

    General Commenti think it's from the perspective of someone falling out of love with a partner and consciously trying to establish a distance. throughout the song he talks about growing to hate and resent someone, and he's trying to hate her, but it will always be a struggle to turn himself against the person who made him who he is.

    Lyric Correction"I'm gonna fall asleep" should be "I'm gonna follow suit"
    "I slow this down" should be, "I'll slow this down"
    "Oh baby I" should be "Oh maybe I"

    and there's so many other mistakes I don't really want to take the time to fix it.
    but bigmoe has it pretty close, aside from the "our level" bit.

    this song is NOT about love or any type of romantic relationship.
    obviously a friendship type relationship, the other selling out.

    General CommentI read that this song was written when yma6 were on the verge of breaking up.

    'And watch you fall apart
    'Cause in the end
    What are you without me?'

    General CommentI feel like this could be about the band, or even a certain person in his life.

    Basically someone along the path of his life was there, but really wasn't there for him. One of those people that stay around, just to watch you feel. He has found this person out and sees who they truly are. This person thinks that they have it all, and really, they have nothing. At times, he literally hates this person, but he does have points where he almost thanks them for making him who he is now. Because without that person, he would be naive.

    General CommentI love this band!!! This song is incredible! I was looking for the song Dilemma on here, and could not find it. Dilemma has to be my favourite!
    Joshua is half English and half French, I had to look it up, because he looked so French and though his name Franceschi is of Italian origins, there are a lot of Franceschis in France.
