Grayscale - Irish Curtains Lyrics




If I should die before I wake
I pray that you'll keep our memories safe
I heard you started doing drugs again
I'll hold you up because you're nothing but skin
I want to fix what your father did
Put down the knife and wash your hands
Suicide won't fix any of this
Put down the knife and wash your hands

Tearing down Irish curtains
You swore that you'd never do this again
Killing off all your loved ones
For something you lack control of

You slit the throat
Of all the good and watched it die

If I should die before I wake
I pray that you'll keep our memories safe
I heard you started doing drugs again
I'll hold you up because you're nothing but skin
I want to fix what your father did
Put down the knife and wash your hands
Suicide won't fix any of this
Put down the knife and wash your hands

If I should die before I wake
I pray that you'll keep our memories safe
I heard you started doing drugs again
I'll hold you up because you're nothing but skin
I want to fix what your father did
Put down the knife and wash your hands
Suicide won't fix any of this
Put down the knife and wash your hands

Wash your hands

Grayscale Irish Curtains Comments
  1. Sky Guy

    So i think its about a girl. She has a boyfriend, the singer of the song. Her father hurts her. So she takes drugs, stops eating and gets depressed. She selfharms und isolates from everybody she loves. And her boyfriend finds her, nearly killing herself, nothing but skin. He holds her up an wants to save her. But he doesnt know if its too late. Please add if i forgott something

    SleepingWithPanic!AtTheDisco

    No but close and good observations but it's not it's about the lead singer Collin his mom she's be abusive with drugs such as come and crack. She thinks of herself as being worthless and she's killing off all her loved ones by using and abusing drugs. Her family including him told her to stop but she she's addicted of course and cares more about herself than her children and loved ones. She slit throat meaning that she cut people off she hid herself from the world. Hence when you cut someone's throat with a knife you are either killing yourself or them but it's a metaphor to her separating herself from others who love and she watched it die meaning that they lost hope in her and she's just now all by herself.

    If I should die before I wake
    I pray that you'll keep our memories safe
    I heard you started doing drugs again
    I'll hold you up because you're nothing but skin
    I want to fix what your father did
