Bring Me The Horizon – Crucify Me lyrics
Crucify me, and nail my hands to a wooden cross.
There is nothing above, there is nothing below.
Heaven and
Hell lives in all of us,
And I've
been cast astray.

I am an ocean, I am the sea,
There is a world inside of me.
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep,
No set of lungs could salvage me.
Only a shipwreck, only a ghost,
Merely a graveyard of your former self.
We just watched
the waves crash over.
I've been cast astray.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(No one needs
to know)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(No one needs to know)

I am an ocean, I am the sea,
There is a world inside of me.
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep,
No set of lungs could salvage me.
Save yourself, save your breath,
The tides too strong, you'll catch your death.
So breathe for me, just breathe
.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell, believe me I've seen)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell believe me I've seen)

Oh!

If we make it through the night, if I make it out alive,
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
And you say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me,
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead


Oh!

If we make it through the night, if I make it out alive,
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead.
And you said that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me.
I fear I'm too far gone
Pray for the dead

Pray for the dead
Pray for the dead
Pray for the dead

Yeah!

Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your full undivided attention?
There is something you all really need to know.

There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell, believe me I've seen i-i-i)
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
There is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret.
(There is a hell believe me I've seen)

If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive.

You said that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

Oh!

If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive.
Lord have mercy and pray for the dead,
You say that you can save me,
Don't hope to ever find me
I fear I'm too far gone.
Pray for the dead

I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me

I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
I am the ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me

    Oliver sykes said in an interview that he is not religious and that the album's main concept is good and evil, and that heaven and hell are inside of us, rather than places we go to after we die.
    Throughout the song he explains what its like to be going through hell using metaphors. He describes it as a state in which you feel you are trapped and cannot survive, almost like you can't escape the misery. But, he also has felt a glimpse of heaven, and tells us it exists.
    Most people have been through hell, but few have really felt that heaven within, and the song explains that it does exist. Its so rare that its almost like he's discovered it, like its some sort of secret, and thus he says "lets keep it a secret, no one needs to know". He is telling all that are going through hell that it is possible to feel the complete opposite to themselves, but to keep it as a secret that stays in the back of their head as they experience hell.

    My meaning is there is a bad side and a good side to everyone. He has seen the good side a few times but he is so used to seeing the bad side. He has a lot going inside of him and he has seen people come and go. He is going through a really bad time and he wants to save and not drown (die). He is afraid that no one can help him, he's already drowning.

    Honestly the song can mean a number o fthings. For one it can be heard as oliver being an outsider in the world and how that helps people portraying you as a freak. Second it could meanthat there is one life to live so make the most of it. Third it coud mean about how there are very low times and times life seem perfect the song could have any number of meqaning depending on how tyou partray life :)

    I think the meaning of the song is that heaven and hell are real in the form of being the struggle that life is. The 'i am the ocean' part further emphasizes this as oceans and seas are a continuing playground of conflict. There is a world inside of me I think refers to imagination and how the clockworks of the mind are so similar to real life. Basically lifes an eternal struggle.

    I think Oliver has associated with the Devil. And as in many songs includeing this one, it doesn't take a genius to see that Oliver may feel like its to late for him to return to God(if anything) even if he wanted to. For example the chorus says it all, and even in other songs like Chelsea smile he basically says " IF I don't believe in hin, Why would he belive in me?" Stateing how his guilt is killing him inside. Hey don't get all argumental for those of you for nonbelievers in god, I respect the fact some don't belive in god, but I think Oliver basically sold his soul to the Devil and Throughout his songs he trys to reveal that it may have been a Mistake the Whole time. Idk, that's My inference? Any debates, Disscussions? Id really Would like to know, I feel His songs are powerful with the sense of feeling his emotion when he sings sometimes.

    Crucify me means that oli doesn't believe that when he dies the 'lord' will help him, as he is supposedly too far gone, he believes that there is no such thing as heaven and only hell exists. He can't cope with the pressure of trying to save himself from the unevitable that he is actually too far gone, to seek help.
    "you said that you can save me,.
    Don't hope to ever find me.
    I fear I'm too far gone.
    Pray for the dead".
    In the inside he believes that his soul or whatever is too far gone to save, from all the bad stuff that he has done in his life. Which he wants to tell maybe he actually did find heaven but knows that he wont go which he keeps as a secret from everyone.

    That everyone shout stfu when it comes to religion, all it does: cause wars. And when he says ' I am the ocean, I am the sea' meaning well to me that there is a little of the devil in us all, and there is a little of god in us. And oliver skyes is amazing, and my future husband, and yeah he's just yeah. No words explain his amazingness.

    I think its about pain in people's live and sometimes you really feel low, not as low as wanting to be crucified but yeno. All the talk of being cast astray, its just him saying he feels isolated and no one understands his problems. Ditto calling himself a shipwreck and a ghost. Maybe its drugs? Who knows, its clearly a personal song and there could be many different interpretations of it.

    I think this song is about his experience with the problems of drug use, which has a role in many other songs on the album ("Fox And The Wolf"). The hell he describes are the problems that any kind of substance abuse causes. I think the heaven described is the feeling of using hardcore drugs (The closest thing to a heaven or state of bliss for anyone who doesn't think that there is a life after this one). "Let's keep it a secret; No one needs to know" is, I think, encouraging people not to use drugs to overcome the difficulty of life or to use them as an escape.

    In this, it seems that ollie is expressing that all throughout his life, he's been robbed through childhood and young adulthood of the truth of this world, and he has no foundation in anything. I believe he's recently found christ and become christian, but isn't sure if he will be able to still go to heaven after all the wrong he's done. He's saying pray for the dead, he's cast astray. Meaning to pray for him, because he believes he's already dead, lost. "there is a hell, believe me i've seen it. There is a heaven, let's keep it a secret" is saying, in a sarcastic/cynical tone, that it took him this long to find out the truth, so let's might as well continue to keep it on the hush.

    Hell is the common grave, there is no such thing as an eternal burning pit where the damned by god go, god isn't that synacle he created human life to live forever, hes not going to send them to a place to suffer for eternity, the word hell is derived from a pit called gehennah "burning pit" which was a just a pit that was constanly kept lit to rid dead bodies and dead animals etc.
