Bring Me The Horizon – Drown lyrics

[Verse:]
What doesn't kill you,
Makes you wish you were dead
.
Got a hole in my soul growing deeper and deeper.
And I can't take,
One more moment of this silence,
The loneliness is taunting me
.
And the weight of the worlds getting harder to hold up
(Hold up, hold up, hold up)

[Pre-Chorus:]
It comes in waves, I close my
eyes,
Hold my breath and let it bury
me.
I'm not okay and it's not all
right,
Won't you drag the lake and bring me home
again?

[Chorus:]
Who will fix me now?
Dive in when I'm down?
Save me from myself,
Don't let me drown.
Who will make me fight?
Drag me out alive?
Save me from myself,
Don't let
me drown.

[Verse 2:]
What doesn't destroy you,
Leaves
you broken instead.
Got a hole in my soul growing deeper and deeper.
And I can't take,
One more moment of this silence,
The loneliness
is taunting me.
And the weight of the worlds getting harder
to hold up
(Hold up, hold up, hold up)

[Pre-Chorus:]
It comes in waves, I close my eyes,
Hold my breath and let it bury me.
I'm not okay and it's not all right,
Won't you drag the lake and
bring me home again?

[Chorus:]

Who will fix me now?
Dive in when I'm down?
Save me from myself,
Don't let me drown.
Who will make me fight?
Drag me out alive?
Save me from myself,
Don't let me drown.

[Bridge:]
You know that I can't do this on my own.
You know that I can't do this on my own.
You know that I can't do this on my own.
You know that I
can't do this on my own.

Who will fix me now?
Who will fix me now?

[Outro:]
Who will fix me now?
Dive in when I'm down?
Save me from myself,
Don't let me drown.

    The lyrics are about feeling defeated and tired of the bullshit in the world starting with one's own daily grind and struggles within. There's a sense of loneliness so deep it feels like someone close has either died, someone that could make life better and kept these feelings of anguish and numbness at bay. This person could be a parent friend or lover that brought the comfort but there's no one now and how the hell can they cope now? It seems that there is an message of suicide but that's not what they want. They want the loneliness and pit of sorrow they feel to just go but they can't do it alone. The bridge especially screams this to me. The chorus also says there's no one to fix them but the underlying meaning says --I need to find someone before there is no turning back either from all loss of hope or suicide.

    To me, this song is about how you feel when you hit your darkest place. You want someone to help you out, because you know that you can't do it on your own. You're so depressed you feel as if no one wants to care or be there for you. You can't do it anymore. You're having suicidal thoughts. There's people all around you, but that one person you need most doesn't seem to be there. So you drown in your own personal abyss of darkness and raw sadness. You're toxic to yourself and you want nothing more than to be saved because, well, you simply can't do this anymore.

    This song I think is a song about letting the empty void inside us all take over. That feeling of numbness taking over and making you feel empty and defeated. The lyrics of this song are in my opinion true to life, we all need a special somebody or something that fills that emptiness some of us have. The chorus of this song is astonishing and in my opinion a cry for help. I think that this song is telling the listener to find a reason to keep going. Also I can'can't help but to think the lyrics are about suicide and a lack of hope. Having that savior that would jump in after you. Over all this is my favorite song Bring Me The Horizon has released and find this song intriguing. Just please always remember suicide is not the answer and if you ever find yourself thinking about it remember all the people you will hurt by hurting yourself. Always have hope and never let the weight of the world bring you down. Stay strong and don't give up.

    This song I Believe is about the feeling you have when you have no one to care for you and the only way out is by just giving up with life completely and begging someone to keep you from ending your life but no one will help and it just cant be done alone i go through this struggle daily and have finally found that some people have no one to help and it just was not meant for you to be helped but that's just my opinion

    I read on Twitter that Oliver Sykes and Jordan Fish wrote the music for their friends band from inside. Their single called Find My Way was a song that was written for that's The Spirit but they helped their friends out instead. I’m not 100% sure it's true, but the From Inside song is on YouTube if you wanna see for yourself. Wanted someone to clarify it or not but actually love it tho whatever way.

    This song really hits hard for me. It can really relate to alcoholism. It doesn't kill you (yet) but makes you wish you were dead sometimes. The worse it grows and the loneliness that you feel while you stay at home away from others just to drink. Then wanting others to fix or save you by crying out for help. Instead of helping yourself. "Drowning" in the alcohol. Then when you try to sober up, you get buried by waves of withdrawal. Ending with knowing you can't do this on your own. Needing some sort of professional help or encouragement.

    It's about a person who lost himself, probably suffer from depression and they just lost who they are and they get bad thoughts of suicide and maybe harming their self and make bad thinks to their self however, I believe that there was a person who used to help them through this and make the pain easier, maybe that person died or left them, heartbroken, now they are turning on something they don't know and they want someone to save them from the depression and loneliness they are in. No one is in sight so they keep on getting worse and worse, begging for an arm to take them out of depression and bad thoughts, who will fix me now? Save me from myself? Don't let me drown!

    This song is an interpretive song. In my opinion, it can mean that he is talking about how he is at the bottom of the pit. He needs help. He needs God who can "fix him" and keep him from "drowning". Even though they are far from being a Christian band, they illustrate a sense of desperation in the message that can appear to be a cry to Jesus.

    He's lonely, broken, and empty. He's crying out for completion. Someone who cares to listen. Personally, I see this song relates to how I was dead at one point and these feelings haunted me. But in the end, Jesus was there to overcome my pain. He was there to bring me happiness. He was there to destroy my loneliness forever. He lifted me out of water, kept me from drowning. That is what Drown means to me. Can you feel my heart part 2: The Cry for God to complete me. He did. The song that can result after this song is Breaker's Commision by For Today.
