Bring Me The Horizon – Chelsea Smile lyrics

I've got a secret.
It's on the tip of my tongue.
It's on the back of my lungs.
And I'm gonna keep it.
I know something you don't know
.

It sits in silence.
Eats away at me.
It feeds like cancer.
This guilt could fill a fucking
sea.
Pulling teeth, wolves at my door.
Now falling and failing is all I know.

This disease is getting worse.
I counted my blessings, now I'll count this curse
The only thing I really know... I can't sleep at night.
I'm buried and breathing in regret, yeaahhhhh
The only thing I really know... I can't sleep at night.
I'm buried and breathing in regret.

I've got a secret.
It's on the tip of my tongue.
It's on the back of my lungs.
And I'm gonna keep it.
I know something you don't know.
I've got a secret.
It's on the tip of my tongue.
It's on the back of my lungs.
And I'm gonna keep it.
I know something you don't know.
Oh.

I may look happy, but honestly dear,
The only way I'll really smile is if you cut me ear to ear
.
I see the vultures, they watch me bleed.
They lick their lips, as all the shame spills out of me.

Repent, repent! The end is nigh!
Repent, repent! We're all going to die!
Repent, repent! These secrets will kill us!
So get on your knees and pray for...
Repent, repent! The end is nigh!
Repent, repent! We're all going to die!
Repent, repent! These secrets will kill us!
So get on your knees and pray for forgiveness!

We all carry these things,
Inside that no one else can see.
They hold us down like anchors.
They drown us out at
sea.
I look up to the sky.
There may be nothing there to see.
But if I don't believe in him,
Why would he believe in me?
Why would he believe in me?
Why would he believe in me?
Why would he believe in me?
Why would he believe in me?

Rawr.

I've got a secret.
It's on the tip of my tongue.
It's on the back of my lungs.
And I'm gonna keep it.
I know something you don't know.
I've got a secret.
It's on the tip of my tongue.
It's on the back of my lungs.
And I'm gonna keep it.
I know something you will never know.
You will never know.
I know something you don't know.

    The meaning of this song could be several ideas rolled into one. The first could be the obvious beating the world can give us, forcing us to smile when we're most down just because we want to be accepted, and the second could be the asking of God to rid the world of this social bind, and also the doubt from so many prayings that have gone unanswered. As for the secret part, it could be that his beliefs are already gone, that he doesn't believe anymore, or it could be something closer to him. We won't know unless we asked them ourselves.

    Actually youre all wrong. In ap oli sykes (lead singer) says that he wrote that song about something that he did that was so bad that only his closest friends no. He says that its not illeagal but it would him and his whole bands' careers. He said at one point it was so bad that he was thinking about commiting suicide but he quickly got over that. He says it eats away at him and it kills him to have to live with it. O and twinkythekid just because he doesn't believe in god doesn't mean that he will not go to heaven or anyting like that because if you look away from a couple of bad things that he has done you see that he is a great person.

    Why does everything have to come down to religion? Obviously, oliver is referring to a personal secret & how he doesn't trust anybody with it. (if I don't believe in him, how could he believe in me?)
    "the only thing I really know. I can't sleep at night.
    I'm buried and breathing in regret. "
    He's regretting whatever he did & it occupys his thoughts, hence him not sleeping at night. And the part where it says "i may look happy, but honestly dear the only way i'll really smile is if you cut me frome ear to ear. " shows his unhappiness & yes, a chelsea grin is cutting a victim's face from ear to ear to make it look as though they are smiling.
    How is this religious? I don't know. But honestly, society would be better without religion. It controls us. & it's only for those who are afraid of their mistakes and the unknown. It allows us to pretend that our mistakes are forgiven by an unseen person, but you have to forgive yourself. Humans as a whole are weak & they need something to believe in. I do not. Live your life god free & believe in yourself!

    "The meaning of this song youngstunna is that there was once this girl named chelsea something and they beat her up so bad that her teeth fell out, her tung was all cut and she was bleeding everywere and her scared look like how the girl in the begging of the video is putting on her lip stick and if it ever happens again its called a chelsea smile"
    That isn't true, a "chelsea smile" is if you put a credit card or somthing sharp in another persons mouth and beat him. The card will cut his cheeks. The scars look like he would smile --> chelsea smile.
    Ps: excuse my bad english. It's not my.

    Sorry but I hate bads grammar and most of the senteces didn't make sense.
    I think the meaning to this song is obviously having something to do with people keeping secrets can ruin them and people around them, but I also think it has to do with praying for our forgivness of sinning for keeping huge secrets and screwing things up.
