(Singing:)
Picture yourself in a nightmarish scene of such
Grotesque complexity that you'd kill to be dreaming
Your body's been dying while your mind has been trying to make you
Picture a life where you'd kill for your lover
And a song in your head, the deaths of countless others
Will set up the lyrics for your symphony
That's where you'll find me

(Speaking:)
Something awful has happened here
This is so much worse than I ever could have imagined
I knew all along that this man should not have been released my care
Oh god, what's happened here
He's completely torn his entire apartment apart
The smell is overpowering, a fowl, pungent odor
Rotten food or... I don't know... Possibly something worse
But there's something else that's almost overpowering that...
I think it's a woman's perfume
Oh no, no..
I found the patient, he's lying on the floor in the center of the living room
Completely naked, emaciated, deathly pale
It appears he hasn't eaten anything at all for weeks
The infection has spread up his arms, it must have reached his brain
There's bulging bright red veins all the way up from his wrist to his neck
There's empty bottles everywhere of alcohol, medication...
My god the smell is sickening
There's blood coming from his mouth, nose, ears
He's not dead yet, but he's close
I failed, this is my fault
And somehow, he's smiling at me
I think he's whispering something
No, not just whispering, I think he's singing......

(Background singing:)
This is the end
This is death
Now, place your ear to my lips
Trace these notes with your fingertips
They dance alone on my last breath
This is the end
This is death

(Singing:)
The lines I wear around my wrist are there to prove that I exist (20x)
(someone call an ambulance, 'cause something's not right)
(the smell of her perfume struggles to cover everything)

We were inseparable (6x)

    General Commentperfect ending to an amazing album, i love how everything all comes together, if u listen to each track, it all just makes sense, questions are answered, i love the layering at the end:
    "The smell of her perfume struggles to cover everything
    Someone call an ambulance cause somethings not right
    The lines i wear around my wrists, are there to prove that I exist
    We were inseperable"

    Perfection, so much talent in this band.

    General CommentI think this song wraps up the album by saying that the man has been Unconscious for Awhile and has been just thinking in his own mind that he has been killing people because of the opening phrase "Picture yourself in a nightmarish scene of such
    grotesque complexity that you'd kill to be dreaming.
    Your body's been dying, while your mind has been trying
    to make you picture a life where you'd kill for your
    lover and a song in your head. The deaths of countless
    others simply set up the lyrics for your symphony.
    That's where you'll find me."

    General CommentAll I have to say is wow...

    A poor mind..
    Dead

    Boys Night Out successfully painted a picture of a man, a confused mentally sick man, who killed his wife whom he loved by accident then lives with regret the rest of his life "they were inseperable"
    ='[

    Please can someone clarify what the song in his head means

    I'm still a little confused on that part of this story
