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


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!

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

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


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

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)

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 im sure when they were young, they listended to some stuff that thier parents disagreed with, and yet they dont 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 isnt 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...

    They help people understand the true meaning of life. They explain how depression hurts and how it can be over come. You feel pain when you listen to bmth's music. But it helps because you feel someone else's pain and sorrow. But it doesn't mean that you can't believe. Your demons fill you with fear, but your demon is yourself and that is all your doing. Fighting yourself. People try to understand but end up failing and that isn't what they want. Bmth explains how most people feel and how hard deppression kills a person. They trying to explain how to stay strong. So that is what most people will try to do, but they end up strugling and fail. So they stop trying and they end up dead inside.

    @Unregistered: I'm shocked at your idea that the world would be a better place if adults liked this type of music. Now, I'm not talking about the genre, I'm talking about the content. BMTH is a very misled group of God-haters. They have no faith and are very ignorant. I find it so ironic to the point of cold chills that they have a song called "Go to hell for heaven's sake", because sadly, they, in fact, will be the ones going to hell unless they change.
