I breathe you in with smoke
In the backyard lights
(Backyard lights)
We used to laugh until we choked
Into the wasted nights

(Wasted nights)
It was the best time of my life
But now I sleep alone
(Sleep alone)
So don't, don't, don't wake me up
'Cause my thrill is gone
(Say I'm wrong)
In the sunset turning red behind the smoke
Forever and alone
Yeah

You've gone and sewn me to this bed
The taste of you and me
(You and me)
Will never leave my lips again,
Under the blinding rain
(Blinding rain)
I wanna hold your hand so tight
I'm gonna break my wrist
(Break my wrist)
And when the vultures sing tonight
I'm gonna join right in

I'll sing along
'Cause I don't know any other song
I'll sing along, but I'm barely hanging on
No, I'm barely hanging on
By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone
And now there's nothing to do but scream at the drunken moon

This isn't fair, no
Don't you try to blame this on me
My love for you was bulletproof
But you're the one who shot me

And goddamn it, I can barely say your name
So I'll try to write it
And fill the pen with blood from the sink

But, don't just say it, you should sing my name
Pretend that it's a song 'cause forever it's yours
And we can sing this on the way home

I'll sing along
'Cause I don't know any other song
I'll sing along, but I'm barely hanging on
No, I'm barely hanging on
By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone
And there's nothing to do
But tear my voice apart
Nothing to do and scream at the drunken moon

    Has anyone read what Vic said? I find it truly poetic. He said "I've always been obsessed with happy songs that have morbid lyrics. Lyrically, this song is the darkest I've ever written. It's about being obsessed with someone to the point where you're hurting yourself. A lot of it is written almost like a suicide note meant to be found by the one you love. It's completely crazy and extreme, but it's also comforting to say out loud the things you're thinking sometimes."

    Its about a guy who dated this girl, having the time of his life. Then they broke up and he didn't want to live anymore (so don't wake me up, because my thrill is gone) he doesn't want anyone else. He thought it was forever but she broke his heart and he doesn't want to live anymore (by the time your hearing this ill already be gone)--wonderdul song. But sad.

    The song is bassically saying I wish you'd come back to me cos I miss you & its stating its her fault but like someone whos really on love he did anything to make her love him again & did anything to make her believe that it was his fault she cheated which is why in the video it shows shes talking on the phone ignoring him not showing effection anymore & finnaly he catches her in the bathroom with somebody else & that's why hes showing so much effection in the video to the point where hes almost crying & the part where he says ill fill the pen with blood fromthe sink means he was hurting himself & doing almost anythig to get rid of the empytness he had in his heart cos of her.
