I guess some kids are just born with tragedy in their blood,
I try to wash this away,
I wanna cleanse your veins,

I can help you see the light out of your despair,
You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair
,

I feel the malice in my veins,
My heart swells with hatred in your name,
And when you've got nothing to turn black and blue,
You've still got Hell to look forward to,

You've still got Hell,
You've still got Hell,
When you've still got Hell,

I will dance on your grave,
I will dance on your fucking grave,
I will dance on your grave,
I will dance on your grave,

Oh, when you're blessed with a grave to call your own,
In my mind you'll be six feet closer to your home,
Your eulogy will be music,
Your eulogy will be music to my ears,

Oh, yeah,

I can help you to see light out of your despair,
You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair,

I feel the malice in my veins,
And my heart swells with hatred in your name,
And when you've got nothing to be black and blue,
You've still got Hell,
You've still got Hell to look forward to,

Black and blue,
Black and blue,

I have never really fucking cared,
Tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking air
I have never really fucking cared,
Tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair,
Let's go

    It is about the relationship between man and plants and the sexual longing to be trully connected with the polens that dwell within each specimen, for they are trully beautiful organisms. Oli is explaining his longing for every part of his being to be consumed within the depths of this floral magnificence.

    I definitely think many of the people on here have got it down. It's definitely about his ex girlfriend, or possibly an ex bestfriend that did him wrong. Either or, he is definitely saying he hates them and he they should kill themself and go to hell. Hence the name being black and blue, the literary colors for evil and sadness

    He's talking about how HE is death, and there is a kid who causes a lot of trouble and he's saying he'll put the kid out of misery and tie a rope around his neck then kick the chair.

    Bring Me The Horizon is my favorite band.
