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.

    Oli says it himself..
    "There is nothing above, there is nothing below. Heaven and Hell lives in all of us, and I've been cast astray". (There is no in Heaven or Hell, it's just an in-between space where we go after Death) That's mostly what means the most in the song.

    It clearly means he's gone through hell on this earth, but believes in heaven that it's do good he wants to keep it to himself for himself. He believes in god but feels he's done too much wrong to ever be right. But clearly it's a struggle we all go through, he's just saying he's just like us.

    I believe that oli was able to find out that heaven and hell are inside of us. We will not grow wings and fly to heaven. And we will not sink down into the ground to go to hell. But he's still a bit confused as what he's saying because he says that he's lost in the abyss. Another thing that he is saying that people have told him that Jesus Christ can save him, but he thinks that he has done to much evil to be saved. And he's telling people who believe in Jesus not to go near him because he does not want them to be lost like him. And he's saying that he wants god to be merciful to the people who have already died because he thinks that they have a better chance of being saved instead of him.

    He's been through hell, he's learned there's a heaven but doesn't actually fully believe in it, therefor it is kept as a secret. He's too far gone in his sins, someone probably once told him they's save him, but he believes they shouldn't seeing as he's out of their reach..
