We all are stranger creatures than when we all started out as kids,
Culture forbids,
We have romantic fantasies about what dying truly is,
Fall off the grid.

We live for the night's decor,
It reveals what we dream of.

I know there's...

    I think it's about him being suicidal.
    The night shows what we dream of- is connotations to the darkness that he feels and in the dark we often see things that aren't really there so I think it reflects that.
    also the "what I know I must let go" I think its an actual knife as this song is sang in the perspective of him having just cut himself.
    When he hear's someone call for help too, I don't think it someone wanting his help, I think is someone trying to get to him in the room he's in as they have guessed what he's done as he's done this before and - I must let go of what I know, again is the knife. They know what he's capable of.
    The glowing eyes is easily explained too. When you lose blood and consciousness you eyesight blurs and you see dots of lights. The eyes he connects to the fuzzy feeling he's body is probably feeling from having lost blood.
    However the sun is coming up and because of this he can see light other then the dots in his vision . See the sun he realises he doesn't want to do this, and suddenly he realises his mistake. That why at the end he suddenly starts screaming about making them stop, as he's probably hearing a fuzzing sound in his ears. I honestly think this is what the songs about. Hope you agree or are happy with this . I told my friend this and she was blown away and saw it.

    My girlfriend and I are at an impasse she thinks he's suicidal because of the lyrics, but I think he knows somebody who is threatening to kill themselves if he doesn't stop being famous. Thinking about it more and more I can't decide which interpretation fits better any insight would be appreciated

    Someone's trying to help him out of a dark room full of his demons aka his mind or depression. But Tyler isn't sure he wants to leave the demons and go to this person, and this person is trying to ask Tyler to help himself as well? Idk might be a bunch of crap but idk - E

    Follow me on insta @tropicalgrimes !!! I think the song a about trying to hind and shove away your negetetive thoughts but they knock (something reminds you of them; you start to think and they come back) they knock on your door wanting to come in and you let the thoughts roam.

    I think it talks about wanting to be left alone in your own negative thoughts and forgetting responsibilities. That's the basic thing.
