Everybody Dies In Their Nightmares Lyrics
Don't go, stay up and don't go
Tired of feelin' like I'm trapped in my damn mind
Tired of feelin' like I'm wrapped in a damn lie
Tired of feelin' like my life is a damn game
Nigga really wanna die in the night...

I think X was going through a rough time and friends were thinking of killing themselves and he wants them to stay alive with him because suicide doesn't solve anyone's problems

Don’t go to sleep ~ (interpretation) don’t die/kill yourself
Stay up ~ don’t end your life
Those are the main lyrics to interpret. They are repeated through the whole song in the background. From the looks of it, the sound is about pain and suffering and how you should solve your problems by killing yourself.

I used to be deeply depressed so that gives me some sort of advantage. My interpretation of this song is talking about depression itself and how it wants you to give in. Your nightmares are your mental/emotional pain. The singer/person the singer is talking about is desiring to go to sleep but part of them wants to keep going but more often than not they dont make it. I'm not depressed anymore but I still listen Xxxtentacion (heh). There's still some scars left... but sometimes the best thing to do is move on <---Disclaimer:Easier said than done.

I think when X was telling his friends not kill themselves because he wants them to stay alive with meaning dont go to sleep by meaning dont end yourself

The emotion portrayed of this song is anxiety. When he goes to sleep or when he alone is when his most vulnerable to his mental agony, as this are the times when he truly gets lost in his thoughts. “Don’t go to sleep” here, he is explaining that killing yourself and committing suicide was not going to solve anyone’s problems

Derealisation disorder. Mdma and weed being mixed.

It's where people get. Lose to you with love and then they pull the rug when the time is right to take from you what they came to you for.

I honestly think that "Don't Go to sleep" is basically saying that if you go to sleep,You die. Just like cancer if you stay up you live,Go to sleep you die."Don't go to sleep stay up with me" maybe somebody important is dying in his life and doesn't want them to go to sleep,or else they die.

"change hoes like clothes, can't get attached" shows x felt no one could love him as he was since he didn't even love himself. Feels as though he can't commit and not necessarily to a person, but in particular to the thought of just staying alive really.

I think x predicted his death because the lyrics "Don't wanna go outside, get stuck in traffic." Are basically him saying, 'I don't wanna go outside and die." Because he was shot.

My interpretation of this song is he was feeling lost."don't go to sleep" here, he was explaining that killing yourself and committing suicide was not going to solve anyone's problems/ He obviously was going through a tough time when he wrote this song.

The meaning of the song means that he's scared of the night time because it's the only time he's stuck with his thoughts.

Well listening to this song really makes me ease that ii was trapped in my damn mind for too long and now ii should stay up/ not die you sometimes feel like the life you living is a damn lie.

"Dont go to sleep" is meaning dont die.

In your nightmares, when you sleep your dieing because you feel life is horrible and in your nightmares you die. If you stay up, you live because your not in the nightmare of dieing.
