Autumn, Emilie - I Know Where You Sleep Lyrics




I know, the sickening thoughts that slither around your head
I know, the gluttonous guilt that buried me in your bed
Manipulate me if you can, go on and fool me like your biggest fan

I know, the arrogant pride that poisons the truth you hear
I know, the bigoted tongue that tears apart all your fears
Pontificate, you faded star, go on and show them who you really are

You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
You can fake it on stage
Crawl from your cage
Search and destroy
You can kill and depend on it
I know your tainted flesh
I know your filthy soul
I know each trick you played
Whore you laid
Dream you stole
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it all
I know the secrets that you keep
I know where you sleep

I know, the illness behind the image that you create
I know, the tedious need to turn all your love into hate
You poor pathetic paranoid, is it just me or do you secretly enjoy it?

You can lie to the papers
(You can lie)
You can hide from the press
(You can hide)
You can fake it on stage
(Fake)
Crawl from your cage
(Crawl)
Search and destroy
(Search)
You can kill and depend on it
(Kill)
I know your tainted flesh
(You can hide)
I know your filthy soul
(You can hide)
I know each trick you played
(You can fake it if you try)
Whore you laid
Dream you stole
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it all
I know the secrets that you keep
I know where you sleep

Sleep, Sleep, Sleep

You play the victim very well
You build yourself indulgent hell
You wanted someone to understand you
Well be careful what you wish for because I do
You've got a fancy turn of phrase
You set your trap
You made your plays
You're so fond of games
You must never lose
Funny how the only one in your bed is you

You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
(Fake, crawl, search, kill)
You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
Fake, crawl, search, kill

Oh my god, Oh my god
I touched you
I can never live it down
I can never live it down
God save the queen
I loved you
I can never live it down
I can never live it down
Oh, oh, I fucked you
I can never live it down
I can never live it down
I can never live it down

I know the sickening thoughts that slither around your head
I know the gluttonous guilt that buried me in your - shh! - bed

You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
You can fake it on stage
Crawl from your cage
Search and destroy
You can kill and depend on it
I know your tainted flesh
I know your filthy soul
I know each trick you played
Whore you laid
Dream you stole
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it all
I know the secrets that you keep
I know where you sleep

I'm wishing you the best of luck and by the way
(Your poetry sucks)
I'm wishing you the best of luck and by the way
(Your poetry sucks)
I'm wishing you the best of luck and by the way
(Your poetry sucks)
I'm wishing you the best of luck and by the way

Autumn, Emilie I Know Where You Sleep Comments
  1. 張國榮

    this song gives me scorpio vibes lmao.

  2. cintu lator

    So prophetic....


    In Finland Veijo Baltzar is now having a jailtime....


    A master of artistic skills and a director......laugh


    The art scene is made for narcists and psychos.


    EA knew it.

  3. Melania MoneyPenny

    uh huh ..please ..have sexual intercourse ..with yourself. Please take some time ..alone to contemplate.

  4. Alex Bott

    They all deserve to eat shit and die. We all know it. Stop pretending I'm the bad guy now.

  5. Alex Bott

    We track down your families too

  6. Alex Bott

    Seriously, we have a small data base on all of your personal information including your home addresses. When I said stop looking at my internet browser I wasn't joking. I don't care if you think other people shouldn't masturbate that's people's private business and none of your business. It's time to stop infringing upon my personal property. And I mean it in blood.

  7. Bnb Tnt

    Her lyrics are pretty cool
    But fuck listening to her music makes me wish I was fucking deaf

  8. Carlos Quezada

    I KNOW WHERE You SLEEP

  9. I am Alex

    I never really knew about Emilies drive for her music. I knew of it and adored the lyrics. Now, seeing and listening to her words, she’s still an amazing person and I’m always gonna love her brilliance ❤️ This is one of my most favorite songs of hers.

  10. Alex Bott

    Elmo knows where you sleep

  11. T.K. McNeil

    Amanda Palmer on Bath Salts. Interesting.

  12. Diabolical Dragon

    I wish I could find this song with vocals only

  13. anxiety yeet

    Oh hello sylvia plath

  14. Haylei

    I wouldn't dare compare her to any other artist, but the feeling she gives me, it's the same defiance as MSI & I love the goosebumps so much ♡_♡

  15. Annabelle Lecter

    Isnt this about the guy from the Smashing Pumpkins?

    Diamond Taylor

    Annabelle Lecter if you mean billy then no , this album came before that

  16. Sarah Mackay

    I doubt anyone is coming back to this song to listen to it, but for those of you who have.. here is a fun fact in case you didn’t know. This song was obviously about her relationship with Billy Corgan, the lead singer for Smashing Pumpkins. Probably was already obvious from the lines in the song.. but for those of you who didn’t know..

  17. Crystal Garrett

    Liar - "I'll spend eternity comparing all my poetry to your's"
    I Know Where you Sleep - "By the way, your poetry sucks"

    Not even sure if the link there's intended, but love it nonetheless

  18. BridgeToNowhere1994

    My high, cheerful voice doesnt do this song justice ;__;

  19. Ms._.Mochi 05

    my best friend sang this to me and I'm lie O_O

  20. Alex Bott

    one day you're going to wish there was a medication that couldve saved you from me

  21. Alex Bott

    innocence? ha! I hardly call following me around innocent

  22. Erin Marie

    I love her so much oml fuuuck

  23. 4thtroika

    Seanan McGuire's Midnight Blue-Light Special  brought me here.

  24. Asthens Beech

    Describes Eminem perfectly.

  25. Kirk Johnson

    Ahh music that pleases my soul finally pure good quality music I feel so embraced by the darkness I love it.

  26. trurtle

    so deliciously dark muahaha >:)

  27. Ye-Average-Artist

    Ok, so I found this song from a video about a ship. And I have never been more thankful for random ship videos.

  28. MEEP Love

    the fine arts award merit winning video brought me here

  29. No Name

    i dedicate this song to Hillary Clinton <3

  30. Jinxx and Ava

    AND BY THE WAY YOUR POETRY SUCKS IM SO

  31. Why Ask

    I dedicate this song to the #Killeen texas city council seems that this fits you well enlighten of all the scandal over the budget and the fact you hide the truth from the people and then play the victims when people speak out against you. ( no this is not a threat of any kind, just a good song that speaks out to me and many that feel betrayed by those we elected past and present)

  32. Nicole B.

    I think her ex was a narcisssist!

    HeyItsHan

    its about the sexual abuse she went through as a child..

    Krisanna Marie

    HeyItsHan interesting I read somewhere that it was written about her dating Billy Corgan!

    Kat Korman

    @HeyItsHan considering she says "I loved you/ I fucked you" I'd assume this isn't about being a child.

    Gabriel Aderre

    A lot of our exes were.

  33. Mia

    Her rage songs are just <3

  34. St. Jerome

    I dedicate this song to Donald Trump

    Nonnitot

    You slept with Trump?

    Jinxx and Ava

    Nonnitot ouch

    St. Jerome

    Of course not that part.....I interpret that part as me tolerating/humoring him during his I'm a celebrity phase and not seeing him for what he actually was. Hell on earth.

    RealmRabbit

    By the way, his poetry probably would suck. Yet, I still want to see how badly a poem by President Donald Trump would be. I'd make a joke poem about building a wall and making america great again and such, but I don't have the time to do that.

  35. ohyeahapples

    I definitely love this. I wonder if this song was written to Billy Corgan...

    Jack Mythos

    They were together before this album was made and I've heard Billy Corgan is kind of an asshole

    marina aguirre

    I always thougth it was

  36. Jack Mythos

    Was this written about Billy Corigan?

  37. BlackenedRain1029

    Singing this song when I feel like shit instantly lifts my mood just saying... Heh.

    Tara Fox

    same :)

  38. Morbius Fitzgerald

    Maybe its just me but I'd love to see a duet with her and Poe.

    Farha Buh

    Morbius Fitzgerald As in... Edgar Allan Poe?

    Morbius Fitzgerald

    No, as in the singer. Look up "Poe - Haunted" if you want to see what I'm talking about.

    Madison Cathcart

    Omg, I'd love that o.o

  39. Moonlight_Howl

    I've been looking through her other songs... and I only just realized how different this song is from all her others. The tone is so much different, the tone of the music, her voice, everything.

    Wow.

  40. AdamsSiren Adventures

    I love this song from one of FLIPPY on Happy tree friends :D

  41. Harley Quinn

    I love this song but I can relate to it, not like most people in the way of me singing it to someone I hate, I feel like it's she (or my enemies) singing it to me because the lyrics really fit me well, in real life I am tired of faking, acting like the inoccent little girl but I secretly love suffering and blood, pretending to be another person and when someone finds my little secret saying that I changed but I never did, I am always hiding, I want someone to understand me and my poetry sucks too xD I know this song is about a rapist but I still think that it speaks to me o.o

    PhyreI3ird

    +Harley Quinn Why even bother faking? If faking is something you don't like, just sever ties to the people who can't handle the real you, or if you can't sever them completely just make them very loose ties. I'm of course not advocating going 'balls-out' on the street if you know what I mean, but personally I just couldn't stand when I 'had' to fake my personality to people; so eventually I just slowly drop-fed people the aspects of my true self and as people showed they couldn't handle it, I just snipped the ties between us, at least as much as I could.

  42. Søren L. Westergaard

    Imagine the Joker Singing this to the Batman. Most of it fits perfectly! "You wanted someone to understand you, but be careful what you wish for, because i do!"

    Alphabet Girl

    That would be amazing.

    Morbius Fitzgerald

    The only segment of the song that doesn't fit is 2:13 - 2:26

    NecroBabyReaper

    +Søren L. Westergaard She has always reminded me of a version of Harley Quinn that finally becomes tired of the Joker's shit. So, in a way, if she took Ivy's advice.

    Pie Pierrot

    Unless you're a Batman/Joker fan XD

  43. Nova Sky

    I love the way it sounds like a boss fight soundtrack.

    Alphabet Girl

    It really does. Lol

    CrowPowersActivate

    Certain parts of it sound really similar to Zed's fight in Lollipop Chainsaw.

  44. nora hagberg1997

    omg this song makes me think of an ex/rapist that I really hate

    Jayyde Nychole

    nora hagberg1997 I feel that, though.

    Fern Leaves Studio

    I always dedicate this song to my rapist whenever I listen to it. May he tremble in fear for his monstrous actions knowing that I know where he sleeps...

  45. Camelia Rose

    *---* I LOVE THIS SONG <3

  46. Justin B.

    EA predicted the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, by writing this snarky song about "Christian Grey." Adds whole new meaning to this song! (Sarcasm)

    Justin B.

    @Annie Wettin Seriously, sarcasm gets lost in translation...sigh... I

    Farrah pagán

    @Justin B. Sorry beiber we will try to notice sooner.

    Justin B.

    Glad to be reassured that others here the 50 shades, lol ( and don't confuse me with beiber ;D$

    Justin B.

    *that others here strongly despise fifty shades

    Totalwasteofmytime

    @Justin B. Haha, sorry! Thanks for clarifying, Justin.

  47. SugarWave PlateMob

    gr8 song to sing to ur ex

  48. Morgan Lowther

    Just looked at the date for this video... has it really been more than three years since wingedzephyr went private???
    Wow.

    Michelle Maier

    No, 8 lol

  49. Leeairrha Burtona

    I love Emilie and her songs.... But this song speaks to me more than the others... is about myself and my deadly obsession.

  50. FuckTheMainstream

    Am I the only one who thinks this song is about Marilyn Manson?

    Krisanna Marie

    Fuck_The_Mainstream I once read it was Billy Corgan

  51. FurEliseJones

    You know when I first heard this song I wasn't a big fan of it. A few Emilie Autumn songs later and this is one of my favorites now,

    Morgan Lowther

    Same! I listened to it a few years ago and didn't care for it, but heard it in a video tonight and HAD to look it up. I love it so much.

    Leiflets

    She really does have that effect though, i believe one person likened her to an acquired taste, and i couldn't agree more. Something about her just keeps you coming back, by far one of my favorite artists.

  52. ClownAddict

    I just love the aggression in this song and the pure fear you feel when she says "I know where you sleep".
    It is so fucking beyond perfect holy shit

    Siobhan Wood

    So much unadulterated fear...

    Alex Bott

    I just need people to know there's no reason they should be getting sleep at night

  53. sweaq123

    If this song had mediocre lyrics, it'd be pretty boring. Luckily, it has awesome lyrics.

  54. Smoszy14

    She come from another world <3

  55. Jeupe Zavala

    She remembers me to Nina Hagen so much. The both are amazing!

  56. VictoriaAshley

    You did amazing with this video! The timing was perfecttt

  57. Sarafina Delirium

    this is one of the best song in the whole god damn world

  58. Siobhan Wood

    I should not have listened to this before going to bed.
    That was a very bad idea.

  59. Tsuveras

    This reminds me of light Yagami from death note so much in a way lol

  60. Amanda Woolcock

    FUKIN LOOOOOOOVE THIS SONG!!!!!! 
    SPREAD THE PLAGUE!!!!!

  61. Stacie Fuller

    i am going to sing this to my sister at night and scare her

  62. MkDragan1

    I rather like this song, as I do many EA songs, but it makes me uncomfortable: it just strikes me as too personal and specific an attempt to HURT somebody [and we all know who that 'somebody' is], It is just too hysterically vindictive, bitter and vicious. As much of an asshole that 'somebody' might or might not have been to her, she's no prize herself as far as her personality goes, regardless of how beautiful and talented she might be: she's fifty miles of bad road, and my heart goes out to any boyfriend or future husband of hers.

    RavenEvanescence

    @ier rose
    from what we can gather is he was just abusive.

    ier rose

    @RavenEvanescence First off, nice name, second, I was wondering if he had some connection to her, like were they dating or was he abusive to his wife/gf?

    RavenEvanescence

    @ier rose
    They were dating and he was emotionally abusive towards her I believe.

    ier rose

    @RavenEvanescence I understand totally now! Thanks for responding! I really hope he didn't hurt her too bad, she's been through enough hell already

    RavenEvanescence

    @ier rose
    I believe he was the source for her being bad and through shit. But idk, really all you can do is ask her mom and that's not recommended since her mom is still very hurt by the whole "fire" thing.

  63. Schnaider 978

    Playing victim wery well indeed >:)

  64. Samsung Galaxy Note 10

    ah...this puts me to sleep..........i need help XD

  65. Lili Fawn

    i want alois trancy to sing this because you can't deny that this is his theme song. :( i feel rly bad fo r that fictional kid ok

    Ariel Couch

    I always hear it as L's internal monologue toward Light.

  66. Lee Ann

    This song... Kinda scared me.. A lot.

  67. kayceeBurtonFreak

    They're only just saying it to show what they've done to them. Chill.

  68. TheCyberguy101

    Dislikes go to hell

  69. silvermoon

    but she's also saying ''I loved you'' and also ''you wanted someone to understand you, be careful because I do'', nothing against your intepretation, but I think these are some points which are difficult to explain when you see it like that. :)

  70. Ryuhime Sama

    How does she go from sounding so beautiful to sounding downright fucking terrifying?

    I love it!

  71. Badger BadgerBadger

    This song should just be called "I totally hate you" and just say "I totally hate you" over and over again

  72. Cleo Lana

    This song is so addicting.

  73. EponineEverdeen22

    I know where 9 people sleep.

  74. Zaerisa

    Always nice with a new perspective, and yes, now that i think of it, what you say makes perfect sense. I think however that most people might get a bit stuck in her hating someone else perspective.

  75. Not Just A Diet

    Finally, someone else who agrees with me! I've thought this since I first heard it 2 years ago but never found someone else who thought the same.

  76. bugs mcgra

    I think I found a new favorite Emili Autumn song

  77. Donna Gleason

    I want to sing this song to this girl in my math class whom is so "innocent" but is really a total bitch

  78. Etrilla Rose

    Best. "Fuck You." Ever.

    Mihovil BeckV

    I think the shape of water took first place but this is close second.

  79. Ria Benthil

    I feel the anger radiating from your demonic body ;)

  80. TheyreNotBreathing

    You, um, might have a problem with men... :-)

  81. DeMiDayDreamer

    I want a Man to sing this song with a deep and erotic voice...
    just for fun

  82. Madeline Mae

    Listening to Daft Punk

  83. Madeline Mae

    Before I was listening to this, I s

  84. Sarah Repko

    wow. thats exactly what i was thinking when i was listening to this. ecspecially when she says "by the way your poetry sucks" i just kept thinking that this whole song was just about beating up on herself , it makes me want to just give her hug, ;( we love you Emilie! You're amazing!

  85. McLPmaN

    omg this is the baddest and OMG fu--cking music ever!!

  86. kayceeBurtonFreak

    WhEn Am I nEvEr InSaNe??

  87. kayceeBurtonFreak

    How is this spammed?

  88. Dmanmotherf

    Intense shit. She can fuck you up by creeping in like an assassin in the night.
