I breathe you in with smoke in the backyard lights,
we used to laugh until we choked into the wasted nights.
It was the best time of my life, but now I sleep alone,
So darling, don't, don't wake me up, 'cause my thrill is gone.
(Say I'm...

    "I've always been obsessed with happy songs that have morbid lyrics. Lyrically, this song is one of the darkest I've ever written. It's about being obsessed with someone to the point where you're hurting yourself. A lot of it is written almost like a suicide note meant to be found by the one you love. It's completely crazy and extreme, but it's also comforting to say out loud the things you’re thinking sometimes."

    When vic says so darling don't don't wake me up cause my thrill is gone it means for me that the guys loved the girl before then she cheated on him and the other one is comforting her.

    This song is about loving someone so much, when they don't love you back, so you remember all the good times you guys used to have, and now there's "nothing to do" but accept that it's over.

    Vic is talking about a relationship he thought was going great. Then he found out that he was being cheated on. that why he says " my love for you was bulletproof but your the one who shot me".

    this song is really about loving someone, or people, who don't deserve you and no matter how hard you try, they just keep hurting you. nonetheless, you don't want to leave them, but you finally get to the point of having to. as time goes on, though, you reminisce on the relationship, and it's almost as if the heartbreak is still there after all this time. long story short, it's about loving someone to the point of it being unhealthy for you.

    He said once in a interview that it is about loving someone so much that doesn't deserve it and hurting yourself in the process.

    I'd you know everything about pierce the veil you may know that Vic has self-harmed about his love life and family and his little brother,mike Fuentes drummer of the band,has descovered his cuts and was devistated.Vic then decided to stop and wrote this song for how he has felt over the years.my opinion of this song is beautiful,meaningful and I connect with it

    when he says Ill try to write it and fill the pen with blood from the sink it means that he has self harmed and there is blood in the sink from it.

    this song has a deep meaning. listen closely and open your ears then you'll see that the guy is getting hurt because he's having trouble with her and he doesn't know why so he can't solve these problems and his world is falling down so he ends up by killing himself.

    I breathe you in with smoke in the backyard lights,
    we used to laugh until we choked into the wasted nights.
    It was the best time of my life, but now I sleep alone,
    So darling, don't, don't wake me up, 'cause my thrill is gone.
    (Say I'm wrong)
    In the sunset turning red behind the smoke,
    forever and alone.
    Yeah!
    (he can see in the distance that the relashionship is ending and he was dreaming that is was gonna be ok but its not and hes dreaming)

    You've gone and sewn me to this bed, the taste of you and me
    will never leave my lips again under the blinding rain.
    I wanna hold your hand so tight I'm gonna break my wrist,
    and when the vultures sing tonight I'm gonna join right in.
    (hes saying he kows the relashionship is ending so hes trying to hold on to her)

    I'll sing along, oh
    'cause I don't know any other song.
    I'll sing along,
    but I'm barely hanging on.
    No, I'm barely hanging on.
    By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone,
    and now there's nothing to do but scream at the drunken moon.
    (hes saying he'll play along even thought he knows shes cheatingcus hes bin cheated on like all the time so he knows no other way to have a relashionsip)

    This isn't fair!
    (No!)
    Don't you try to blame this on me.
    My love for you was bulletproof but you're the one who shot me.
    (hes saying its not fair that shes cheating but shes saying ilove you but your killing me )

    And god damn it, I can barely say your name,
    so I'll try to write and fill the pen with blood from the sink.
    Woah oh
    But don't just say it, you should sing my name.
    Pretend that it's a song 'cause forever it's yours,
    and we can sing this on the way home.
    (just tell me you dont wanna be with me instead of cheating)

    I'll sing along, oh
    'cause I don't know any other song.
    I'll sing along,
    but I'm barely hanging on.
    No, I'm barely hanging on.
    By the time you're hearing this I'll already be gone,
    and now there's nothing to do but tear my voice apart.
    Nothing to do,
    and scream at the drunken moon
