Drown - Bring Me The Horizon


The ExperienceYou know that I can't do this on my own. I'm not ok and it's not all right... Bring me the Horizon gives new meaning to the phrase "go down in history" as they take yet another depressing look at would-be heroes and broken dreams...



Music video: Bring Me The Horizon struggles to get through their song as eyes won't stay human, hands go transparent, and even an exorcism is required to see them through to the end. Who needs more help, the sick people they're playing for, or the band themselves.  


Meaning of Drown: I can't do this on my own is a very real experience, but when the music is done, Drown seems less about trust, and more about a desperate and unsuccessful cry for help that goes unheard. The music video saves some of that - there is an exorcist, and the band does finish the song thanks to his supernatural intervention - but the feel of the Drown, just like its title, is still very dark. Drain the lake and take me home could be about saving a drowning friend. But it could also just be about dredging up dead bodies when it's already too late.


Ask yourself: Who makes your struggles and victories possible?

LYRICS:

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 haunting me
And the weight of the worlds getting harder to hold up

It comes in waves
I close my eyes
Hold my breath
And let it bury me
I'm not ok
And it's not all right
Won't you drain the lake
And bring me home again

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

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 haunting me
And the weight of the worlds getting harder to hold up

It comes in waves
I close my eyes
Hold my breath
And let it bury me
I'm not ok
And it's not all right
Won't you drain the lake
And bring me home again

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

You know that I can't do this on my own
Who will fix me now
Who will fix me now


Who will fix me now?
Dive in when I'm down?
Save me from myself
Don't let me drown
