We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

I refuse
I refuse
I refuse
To close my eyes
I have loved
And I have lost
I have turned
And I have tossed
I have listened
I have watched
I have gave into this for long enough
I have lost and I have loved
Sleep had stolen far too much
So don't close your eyes
Not just yet
Sleep is just a cousin of death

I've said it before and I'll say it again
If you think you're alive
Then you're better off dead
I've said it before and I'll say it again
If you think you're alive
Then you're better off... (dead)
I've said it before and I'll say it again
If you think you're alive
Then you're better off dead
I've said it before and I'll say it again
If you think you're alive
Then you're better off... (dead)

I have loved
And I have lost
I have turned
And I have tossed
I have listened
I have watched
I have gave into this for long enough
I have lost and I have loved
Sleep had stolen far too much
So don't close your eyes
Not just yet
Sleep is just a cousin of death

So throw your diamonds in the sky
We'll stay gold forever
So throw your diamonds in the sky
We'll stay gold forev...

I can promise you one thing
Death will take us all
I can promise you one thing
You will die alone
We're all going to hell
We may as well go out in style
Death is a promise
And your life is a fucking lie

We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead
We will never sleep
Cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest
Till we're all fucking dead

I refuse
I refuse
I refuse
To close my eyes

    i think it is saying how he refuses to believe in the lies and that nothing can be promised because no matter what it will change one day, and the only promise capable of being kept is the fact that your going to die one day, its an amazing song :) i cant wait to see them live at the taste of chaos in 1 month..

    This is seriously an amazing song foreal, if you just look at the lyrics. I think it's about how everything won't last, and everything will eventually change, but it's about fighting it, and trying to keep things the way they are. But yeah, Bring Me The Horizon is an amazing band that's forsure.
