Bring Me The Horizon – Sleepwalking lyrics

[Verse 1]
My secrets are burning
A hole through my heart and my bones catch a fever.
When it cuts you up this deep,
It's hard to find a way to breathe
!

Your eyes are swallowing me,
Mirrors start to whisper, shadows start to sing.
My skin's smothering me,
Help me find a way to breathe
!

[Chorus]
Time stood still the way it did before,
It's like I'm sleepwalking!
Fell into another hole again,
It's like I'm sleepwalking
!

I'm at the edge of the world,
Where do I go from here? Do I disappear?
Edge of the world!
Should I sink or swim, or simply disappear
?

Your eyes are swallowing me,
Mirrors start to whisper, shadows start to sing.
My skin's smothering me,
Help me find a way to breathe
!

Sing it!

[Chorus]
Time stood still the way it did before,
It's like I'm sleepwalking
!
Fell into another hole again,
It's like I'm sleepwalking!

[Hook]
Wake up!
Take my hand and
Give me a reason to start again.
Wake up
!
Pull me out and
Give me a reason to start, again


[Bridge]
Time stands still
(Time stands still)
Time stands still
(Time stands still)

Your eyes are swallowing me,
Mirrors start to whisper, shadows start to sing.
My skin's smothering me,
Help me find a way to breathe!

[Chorus]
Time stood still the way it did before,
It's like I'm sleepwalking!
Fell into another hole again,
It's like I'm sleepwalking!

It's like I'm sleepwalking,
It's like I'm sleepwalking,
It's like I'm sleepwalking

[Outro]
Time stood still the way it did before,
It's like I'm sleepwalking.

    Many of times I myself have been sleepwalking, of such times I am wide awake. Bmth are so amazing, yet my parents disagree. I hate it how parents think our taste of music is horrible, such as sws and bmth, and I find it difficult how they find thier music 'mess', cos I'm sure when they were young, they listended to some stuff that thier parents disagreed with, and yet they don't take that into context whilst speaking to thier children. Personally, I think that if adults and parents like this type of music, tht they world will be a better place. Its the same as tattoos and ear stretchers or other piercings, I frown apon the adults who frown apon the freedom of expression and ignore that we have a right to do whatever we want to our bodies. I believe it is time to make them realise that metal isn't just loud obnoxious noise, that we are trying to tell them something, we own our bodies (yet they disagree) and when it cuts you up this deep, its hard to find a way to breathe. Yeah.

    Love how bmth has unique songs and the wasy they are compsed. Although is till like their old sound better I seriously enjoy the new music almost as muc. Oli looks sick and the band is very fresh. I hope to see lots of feedback and good forunes for this badn. I wan tto grow old I see these guys somewhere at the top of the world. My expectations how are but I know that bmth can achieve those kind of expectations because they are my favorite band.

    Sleeping With Sirens cant be compared to BMTH. You're comparing two different genres entirely and styles of music because they fall onto the false "metalcore" title. BMTH is a death-core band who simply released an album that contained more clean vocals and electronic rhythm in the selected songs, as compared to the post-hardcore type music SWS gives out.
    Its tiring seeing people who compare different music tastes entirely as one just because stores like hot topic sell merch for both genres.
    I loved BMTH since Pray For Plagues was released, as I enjoyed SWS when they released their cover of Isis.
    In all honesty, different genres are created to connect different people, and its ok to admire to different bands. In fact, it's always positive to be a fan of many tastes and to expand your music selection.
    But in basic terms, comparing a tomato to a hamburger doesn't entirely make sense. Sure, tomatoes can go with a burger, but both give a feeling of enjoyment that is selective to the individual.
    I hope you can understand my stance on the matter, and take my advice. Stop with the unbearable comparisons.

    The song itself can have many meanings it could be someone suffering with depression and they are trapped in a place that is not helping. Things around him are only making things harder, you could see some references to self-harm but that is a matter of opinion. It could also be society, How can you expect someone to get along with so much and people, time stands still is like the world is at a stand still people are living without actually making a difference. This person is trapped in a place where not only they have problems but the people they look to also are suffering and they themselves cant help they are trapped inside a body and mind of a person that is incapable and no matter how hard they try they think they cant change things they wish they could change who they were so that they could help. They are smothered by personal and other peoples self loathing. And sleep walking is having no control watching things but nothing more, and restlessness even in sleep they can find no peace every second is spend watching their own Hollow lives and the hollow lives of those around them. (Or everything I said could be completely wrong and make no sense, its important to remember they meaning behind a song or poem or art of any kind can only be truly understood by the artist who created it).

    When you're having a bad season it's like time won't pass anymore, it gets tough for you to get through a new day which seems it's going to be like the last ones have been. You end up feeling that you can't live your own life, not because you're not the person you want to be but because all goes the way you don't want it to be so you want to escape from yourself as you think the reason of your disgrace is just you and cannot do anything for it to get better. When you look yourself in a mirror, you see the darkness and the sadness that is eating you and it gets worse when you realize that. The only way which seems the solution is to cause yourself pain, just to feel you're still alive and forget about the other feelings. In my case, I decided to practice sports to feel physical pain instead of the psychological ones and to skip meals saying I was just nervous and couldn't eat but other people need to feel a more intense pain to forget so they find themselves cutting their bodies. It's not as easy as it seems for everybody, I have been "lucky", some other haven't.
