I've lost a part of me.
Tell your friends to sharpen their teeth.
There's a few quid to be made...

And my soul's a sorry state,
So come on down, you're empty lovers.
Worms come out of the woodwork,
And the snakes start to sing.

Do you feel the chill,
Clawing at the back of your neck?
And start to spill.
Did you really think that you could fix me?
We'll sell your bones for another roll.
We'll sharpen your teeth.
Tell yourself that it's just business.

Worms come out of the woodwork.
Leeches crawl from out of the dirt.
Rats come out of the holes they call home.
I fall apart,
And the snakes start to sing.

Don't say I'm better off dead,
'Cause heaven's full and Hell won't have me
.
Won't you make some room in your bed?
Oh, well you could lock me up in your heart,
And throw away the key.
Won't you take me out of my head?

I'm just a would've been, could've been,
Should've been, never was and never ever will be
.
We'll sharpen your teeth.
Tell yourself that it's just business.
Would've been, could've been,
Should've been, never was, and never ever will be.
Worms come out of the woodwork,
And the snakes start to sing.

Worms come out of the woodwork.
Leeches crawl from out of the dirt.
Rats come out of the holes they call home.
I fall apart,
And the snakes start to sing.

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock.
Are you still getting high?
Did you catch your own reflection,
In the knife my mother held?
Or the Hell in my father's eyes?

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock.
Are you still getting by?
Was I your knight in shining armour?
The apple of your eye?
Or just a step to climb?

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock.
Are you still getting high?
Did you catch your own reflection,
In the knife my mother held?
Or the Hell in my father's eyes?

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock.
Are you still getting by?
Was I your knight in shining armour?
Or the apple of your eye?
Or just a step, a fucking step to climb
!

    This song sounds like someone who lost someone or something special and everything that is happening to them is horrible. This songs is about someone who is so broken that everything they try to accomplish falls apart. Also, I think Bring Me The Horizon was trying to make the song feel very lonely and when I listen to it I feel like there is just something about it that makes you just wonder of all the times things have gone awry. This song is really special and it goes to a lot of people's hearts because we all fail at times and the person in this song has tried and tried so very hard and they just can't seem to get what they need back. Everything has made a mess of itself.
