Bring Me The Horizon – ​nihilist blues lyrics
(feat. Grimes)

[Verse 1: Oli Sykes]
I’ve been climbing up the walls
To escape the sinking feeling
But I can’t hide from the nihilist at my door
Buried in the basement floor
Didn’t know what I had planted
It blossomed with all the heart of a cold war

[Pre-Chorus: Oli Sykes]
I’m a spirit in a tomb
Won’t somebody raise the roof
I’m going white, I’m going black, I’m going blue
Do you mind if I’m exhumed?
I’m the ashes in the plume
I’m a beggar in the ruin
I’m peaking out, I’m burning up, I’m shooting through
I'm only lonely for the true

[Chorus: Oli Sykes]
Paradise is in my soul
And I’m terrified I can’t get out
I’m lost in a labyrinth
We are lost in a labyrinth
Paradise is in my soul
And I’m terrified I can’t get out
I’m lost in a labyrinth
We are lost in a labyrinth
Please don’t follow
Paradise is in my soul
And I’m terrified I can’t get out
I’m lost in a labyrinth
We are lost in a labyrinth
Please don’t follow

[Bridge]
[?]
Sink to the floor, sink to the floor
[?] sink to the floor

[Verse 2: Grimes]
You were in my dream last night
But your face was someone else’s
A twitch in my spine, a mutual disorder
Isolation neophyte
Too afraid to taste your conscience
You march in the dark, little lamb to the slaughter

[Pre-Chorus: Oli Sykes]
I’m a spirit in a tomb
Won’t somebody raise the roof
I’m going white, I’m going black, I’m going blue
Do you mind if I’m exhumed?
I’m the ashes in the plume
I’m a beggar in the ruin
I’m peaking out, I’m burning up, I’m shooting through
I'm only lonely for the true

[Chorus: Grimes]
Paradise is in my soul
And I’m terrified I can’t get out
I’m lost in a labyrinth
We are lost in a labyrinth
Please don’t follow
Paradise is in my soul
And I’m terrified I can’t get out
I’m lost in a labyrinth
We are lost in a labyrinth
Please don’t follow
Paradise is in my soul
And I’m terrified I can’t get out
I’m lost in a labyrinth
We are lost in a labyrinth
Please don’t follow
Please don’t follow
Please don’t follow
(Please don’t follow)

[Outro: Oli Sykes]
I’ve been climbing up the walls
To escape the sinking feeling
But I can’t hide from the nihilist at my door
