Bring Me The Horizon – Happy Song lyrics

[Intro]
S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit,
Let's hear it!
S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit,
Let's hear it, let's go!

[Verse 1]
I've had enough.
There's a voice in my head
Says I'm better off dead.
But if I sing along a little fucking louder
To a happy song, I'll be alright.
You want to give up.
Gave it all that you've got,
And it still doesn't cut.
But if you sing along a little fucking louder
To a happy song,
You'll be just fine
cause

[Chorus]
Every now and again we get the feeling
And the great big void inside us opens up.
And I really wish that you could help,
But my head is like a carousel and
I'm going round in circles, going round in circles

[Bridge]
S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit,
Let's hear it!
S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit,
Let's hear it!

[Verse 2]
We are possessed,
We're all fucked in the head,
Alone and depressed.
But if we sing along a little fucking louder
To a happy song,
Maybe we'll forget cause

[Chorus]
Every now and again we get the feeling
And the great big void inside us opens up.
And I really wish that you could help,
But my head is like a carousel and
I'm going round in circles, going round in circles

[Bridge]
Don't wake us up, we’d rather just keep dreaming,
Cause the nightmares in our heads are bad enough.
And I really wish that you could help,
But my head is like a carousel.
And I'm going round in circles, I'm going round in circles.

[Hook]
The world has coalesced,
Into one giant mess of hate and unrest.
So let's sing along a little goddamn louder,
To a happy song and pretend it's all okay.
Let's go!

[Breakdown]
Sing along,
Let's sing along,
A little fucking louder!
A little fucking louder!
Well don't you feel so much better?

[Outro]
S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit,
Let's hear it!
(Well that's the spirit)
S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit,
Let's hear it!
(Yeah, that's the spirit! )

    This song is about how when people are depressed they hide it and put on a fake smile. It's saying as long as you do that and act happy everything will be fine. It saying to everyone to just go along with it and everyone else and act happy even though everyone's hiding something or have issues.

    Happy song is can be took many ways, some say it's a "f**k you" (not sure who to) or just a sad song. Though the most arguable meaning is that it's support to be a representation of the feeling of being depressed to the point where you've likely Given up all hope, and the light at the end of a tunnel is gone, or more likely is just an on coming train. So rather then running ahead and trying to find a solution you instead wallow in your own sadness, wondering why you should even bother; and despite everyone's best attempts you always end up feeling worse afterwards.

    I think this song is aimed at therapists. If you're a teenager and get therapy, they tell you to listen to different music, if you listen to things like bring me the horizon they say for listen to that, so basically Oli Sykes is saying f**k you to every therapist who has said this!

    It can be about madness, he felt really bad, maybe it's about his addiction on drugs. He felt like his head is insane, he was depressed, but he refused to. So he wanted to get rid of it, he tried anything.
    I really love this song, and I am excited about their new album. We can only hope it´s going to be good.

    This song could be about how his depression made him do things he's no so proud of, and the happy songs are to mask everything he did but no mater what he did or how loud he sang (tried to be happy) the depression always came back. Over all the song was, in my opinion, to express how in the end no mater how hard he tried he still was depressed.
