Bring Me The Horizon – ​why you gotta kick me when i'm down? lyrics
[Intro]
I see you

[Verse 1]
You're on the edge of your seat
Ain't you got some place to be
Was hopin' this suspense will kill you
Tell me how would you begin
Watching the way you sink your teeth in
Come and give me your expert opinion
Ah, fuck it
I settle down in the dump
Heard the crowd screaming "Jump"
So I came to the window
(They always wanna kick you when you're down)
Said, "What the fuck have I done?"
They said, "We just want your blood,"
"You know we like you better in limbo"
(They always wanna kick you when you're down)

[Pre-Chorus]
So come on and take a shot
You just can't get enough
Don't let the fact that you know nothings stop you talking now
'Cause when all is said and done
My name's still on your tongue

[Chorus]
So tell me why you gotta kick me when I'm down? (Down)
You better pray I don't get up this time around
And why you tryna put me in the ground?
Don't you know I'm a Sith (I'm a Sith)
I won't stop at the roof
Go ahead, bury me
This is how I go, this is how I thrive
So why you gotta kick me when I'm down? (Down)
(Why you gotta kick me when I'm down?)

[Verse 2]
Yeah, I know it's all in good fun, but
Don't say it's coming from love now
I see those arms in akimbo
(They always wanna kick you when you're down)
Don't set that phaser to stun
'Cause what doesn't kill me
Well it better run like hell
Yeah, you better run like hell

[Pre-Chorus]
So come on and take a shot
You just can't get enough
Don't let the fact that you know nothings stop you talking now
'Cause when all is said and done
My name's still on your tongue

[Chorus]
So tell me why you gotta kick me when I'm down? (Down)
You better pray I don't get up this time around
And why you tryna put me in the ground?
Don't you know I'm a Sith (I'm a Sith)
I won't stop at the roof
Go ahead, bury me
This is how I go, this is how I thrive

[Bridge]
Remember this line that you crossed
Look back and stare at the dark
No, there's no turning back now
Now, that you've opened the gate
Cracked the [?] air safe [?]
(Commence the count down)
(They always wanna kick you when you're)
Remember this line that you crossed
Look back and stare at the dark
Know there's no way to fix us, no
Oh God, what the fuck have you done?
I loved you like daughters and loved you like sons

[Chorus]
So tell me why you gotta kick me when I'm down? (Down)
You better pray I don't get up this time around
And why you tryna put me in the ground?
Don't you know I'm a Sith (I'm a Sith)
I won't stop at the roof
Go ahead, bury me
This is how I go, this is how I thrive
Why you gotta kick me when I'm down? (Down)
Tell me why you gotta kick me when I'm down?
(This is how I go, this is how I thrive)
