Crucify me, and nail my hands to a wooden cross.
There is nothing above, there is nothing below.
Heaven and Hell lives in all of us,
And I've been cast astray.

I am an ocean, I am the sea,
There is a world inside of me.
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep,
No set of lungs could salvage me.
Only a shipwreck, only a ghost,
Merely a graveyard of your former self.
We just watched the waves crash over.
I've been cast astray.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(No one needs to know)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(No one needs to know)

I am an ocean, I am the sea,
There is a world inside of me.
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep,
No set of lungs could salvage me.
Save yourself, save your breath,
The tides too strong, you'll catch your death.
So breathe for me, just breathe.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell, believe me I've seen)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell believe me I've seen)

Oh!

If we make it through the night, if I make it out alive,
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
And you say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me,
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

Oh!

If we make it through the night, if I make it out alive,
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
And you said that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me.
I fear I'm too far gone
Pray for the dead

Pray for the dead
Pray for the dead
Pray for the dead

Yeah!

Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your full undivided attention?
There is something you all really need to know.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell, believe me I've seen i-i-i)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell believe me I've seen)

If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive.

You said that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

Oh!

If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive.
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead,
You say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me

I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me

    Oliver sykes said in an interview that he is not religious and that the album's main concept is good and evil, and that heaven and hell are inside of us, rather than places we go to after we die.
    Throughout the song he explains what its like to be going through hell using metaphors. He describes it as a state in which you feel you are trapped and cannot survive, almost like you can't escape the misery. But, he also has felt a glimpse of heaven, and tells us it exists.
    Most people have been through hell, but few have really felt that heaven within, and the song explains that it does exist. Its so rare that its almost like he's discovered it, like its some sort of secret, and thus he says "lets keep it a secret, no one needs to know". He is telling all that are going through hell that it is possible to feel the complete opposite to themselves, but to keep it as a secret that stays in the back of their head as they experience hell.

    Honestly the song can mean a number o fthings. For one it can be heard as oliver being an outsider in the world and how that helps people portraying you as a freak. Second it could meanthat there is one life to live so make the most of it. Third it coud mean about how there are very low times and times life seem perfect the song could have any number of meqaning depending on how tyou partray life :)

    In this, it seems that ollie is expressing that all throughout his life, he's been robbed through childhood and young adulthood of the truth of this world, and he has no foundation in anything. I believe he's recently found christ and become christian, but isn't sure if he will be able to still go to heaven after all the wrong he's done. He's saying pray for the dead, he's cast astray. Meaning to pray for him, because he believes he's already dead, lost. "there is a hell, believe me i've seen it. There is a heaven, let's keep it a secret" is saying, in a sarcastic/cynical tone, that it took him this long to find out the truth, so let's might as well continue to keep it on the hush.

    My meaning is there is a bad side and a good side to everyone. He has seen the good side a few times but he is so used to seeing the bad side. He has a lot going inside of him and he has seen people come and go. He is going through a really bad time and he wants to save and not drown (die). He is afraid that no one can help him, he's already drowning.

    I think the meaning of the song is that heaven and hell are real in the form of being the struggle that life is. The 'i am the ocean' part further emphasizes this as oceans and seas are a continuing playground of conflict. There is a world inside of me I think refers to imagination and how the clockworks of the mind are so similar to real life. Basically lifes an eternal struggle.
