What do you want from me? Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering? What do you know?
Why aren't you scared of me? Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?

(Come here)
Say it, spit it out, what is it...

    It's about billie asking her fans why they love her so much when shes so broken and has so much self hatred for herself. She wants to know why wer'e not scared of her and why we dont run from her. And when she sayd "did you expect me to make you my art and make you a star and get you connected?" It's a metaphor. She's asking us if we love her because we want something in return. Be cause she hates herself so much she doesnt understand why anyone else would love her.

    I’ve been obsessed with this song since I heard it. It hits so close to home for me. That said...I don’t think she has completely turned into a monster, in fact I don’t think it’s a monster at all. I think it is a metaphor much like skeletons in the closet. She confused and conflicted. Her bad self (the monster under the bed) is asking these questions to her good self. It’s very much like Tyler Durden and the narrator from fight club. They are both one in the same, it’s just that one is a manifestation of how she views her dark side and how she’s loosing control. The imagery in the video shows it all on how her dark side is consuming or in this case, possessing her. She knows that the only way to beat it is to show it affection and care for it, while at the same time trying to keep it hidden. As the video progresses, it’s obvious she’s loosing that battle. It is an amazing and awesome depiction of someone who is suicidally I don’t think she has completely turned into a monster, in fact I don’t think it’s a monster at all.

The imagery in the video shows it all on how her dark side is consuming or in this case, possessing her. She knows that the only way to beat it is to show it affection and care for it, while at the same time trying to keep it hidden but not doing such a good job at that. I think it is an amazing and awesome depiction of someone who is suicidally depressed. Anyone who has been at that point can attest that often times, it feels exactly like you have 2 sides, the one who wants to live and see everything getting better, and the other side that just want to submit. Finally when she ask “when we all fall asleep, where do we go”, she’s referring to the equivalent of heaven and hell if she does do what she says “I want to end me”
