Everybody Dies In Their Nightmares Lyrics

Don't go, don't go to sleep
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.

    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.

    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.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I think the meaning of of the title everybody dies in their dreams is that most people have had gone to sleep and you dont dream at all you just go to sleep and it is just dark nothingness and you wake up exept when you do die you never do wake up

    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.

    Listening to this... makes me think of someone struggling with depression/anxiety..'tired of feeling like im trapped in my damn mind, tired of feeling trapped in a damn lie' Very much makes me think of depression/anxiety... thats my interpretation though probably incorrect
