"Go to Hell, for Heaven's Sake" as written by and Oliver Scott Sykes Jordan Keith Attwood Fish....
For the love of god, will you bite your tongue
Before we make you swallow it
It's moments like this where silence is golden...
...and then you speak.

No one wants to hear you
No one wants to see you
So desperate and pathetic
I'm begging you to spare me
The pleasure of your company

When did the diamonds leave your bones?

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm bleeding out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm bleeding out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

(Go to hell, for heaven's sake)

No one wants to hear you (Save your breath)
No one wants to see you
So desperate and pathetic
You think that no one sees this
I think it's time you knew the truth

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm bleeding out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm bleeding out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

When did the diamonds leave your bones?
Leave your bones!

You're not a shephard, you're just a sheep
A combined effort of everyone you meet
You're all flesh with no bone.
Feed them to the sharks and throw 'em to the wolves!

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm bleeding out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm bleeding out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

Go to hell for heaven's sake!
Go to hell for heaven's sake!
Go to hell for heaven's sake!

    My InterpretationAlthough I might be wrong, this song could be about someone preaching about religion.
    Generally the song talks about someone who is disliked and therefore everything he says, it is ignored. This COULD fit in with what I said in the beginning or even something entirely different

    Song ComparisonI love this song so much! Bit off topic, but has anyone heard of the band FROM INSIDE?? Well I read on Twitter that Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish have written all the music for them cos they are good friends in the UK. Check out their music video for their single BE YOURSELF - FROM INSIDE by searching on Youtube, it sounds very BMTH but still its ridiculous good obviously. Mad that they are doing this too for friends bands now, really love them :D

    General CommentIn this song,there can be more meanings but the one I think it means is that he's talking about a person like maybe one that he'd loved and broke his heart.

    ''I'm burning down every bridge we make''
    :the memories they have he's gonna forget them.
    I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break''
    :saying that it's the first time the person has broken someones heart.
    ''I'm leaving out every word you said''
    :leaving is supposed to be the word bleeding..which meaning he's self harming every word they have said because it was a lie.He felt lied to.''so desperate and pathetic'' that the person was using him.
    ''Go to hell for heavens sake''
    :he's broken and mad to the point were he's just like go to hell.

    My InterpretationI do agree with a previous commenter that this is about religion. You'll notice in their music video they have a lot of anti-religious images like a cross burning, demonic black eyes, etc.

    I'm not so sure its religion in general, though. Its particularly geared towards the people who preach but are really just hypocrites. I think its said towards a single person.

    This person used to be truly faithful and good, but that faded away and now they're hollow and don't have much to stand on. I get this from:
    "When did the diamonds leave your bones?"
    and
    "You're not a shephard, you're just a sheep
    A combined effort of everyone you meet
    You're all flesh with no bone."

    My InterpretationI think this song can be dedicated to the bad side of you. The side you no longer want to be there. ''For the love of god, will you bite your tongue
    Before we make you swallow it
    It's moments like this where silence is golden...
    ...and then you speak.'' I think this is how you feel like everything is going alright, and then things you might be suffering with breaks in. For example if you're dealing with depression - the moments when you don't think about how life is going, you don't feel down at all, ''and then you speak.'' (the bad side) and all is just a complete hell. You want that side of you to disappear. You want it to go to hell.

    My InterpretationOk anything bout kellin or religion f it cause that's stupid even tho the band openly doesn't like religion (quite sad tbh) anyway enough of that

    This song is from oli to oli this song he says is about him talking to himself about the side he believes does wrong and how it needs to be destroyed

    For more detail it's off his atheistic views of how you can be the only one who decides what you do is wrong and how you don't need a God or anyone to set rules for you

    My Opinionwell my thoughts are a little different all though maybe not correct, it could be a little bit about how people bully others, the lyrics in this song reming me of what bullies say to people?

    Song MeaningI heard that this song was about Oli Sykes ex girlfriend, think about the chorus

    I'm burning down every bridge we made
    I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
    I'm bleeding out every word you said
    Go to hell for heavens sake
