Bring Me the Horizon – Medicine

Medicine

[Verse 1]
Some people are a lot like clouds, you know
(Clouds, you know; clouds, you know)
’Cause life’s so much brighter when they go
You rained on my heart for far too long (Far too long)
Couldn’t see the thunder for the storm
Because I cut my teeth and bit my tongue
Till my mouth was dripping blood
But I never dished the dirt just held my breath
While you dragged me through the mud
I don’t know why I tried to save you ’cause
I can’t save you from yourself
When all you give a shit about is everybody else

[Pre-Chorus]
And you just can’t quit, why don’t you deal with it?
I think it’s time to stop

[Chorus]
You need a taste of your own medicine
’Cause I’m sick to death of swallowing
Watch me take the wheel like you, not feel like you
Act like nothing’s real like you
So, I’m sorry for this
It might sting a bit

[Verse 2]
Some people are a lot like clouds, you know
(Clouds, you know; clouds, you know)
’Cause life’s so much brighter when they go
And I spent too long in a place I don’t belong
I couldn’t see the thunder for the storm

[Pre-Chorus]
But you won’t admit, why don’t you get a grip?
’Cause you can’t keep going on and on and on and on like this
And you just can’t quit, why don’t you deal with it?
I think it’s time to stop

[Chorus]
You need a taste of your own medicine
’Cause I’m sick to death of swallowing
Watch me take the wheel like you, not feel like you
Act like nothing’s real like you
So, I’m sorry for this
It might sting a bit

[Bridge]
’Cause I cut my teeth and bit my tongue
Till my mouth was dripping blood
But I never dished the dirt just held my breath
While you dragged me through the mud
Yeah, I cut my teeth and bit my tongue
Till my mouth was dripping blood
But I never dished the dirt just held my breath
While you dragged me through the mud

[Pre-Chorus]
And you just can’t quit, why don’t you deal with it?
I think it’s time to stop

[Chorus]
You need a taste of your own medicine
’Cause I’m sick to death of swallowing
Watch me take the wheel like you, not feel like you
Act like nothing’s real like you
So, I’m sorry for this
It might sting a bit
Taste of your own medicine (Taste of your own medicine)
Yeah, I’m sick to death of swallowing (Sick to death)
Watch me take the wheel like you, not feel like you
Act like nothing’s real like you
So, I’m sorry for this
It might sting a bit

[Outro]
Some people are a lot like clouds, you know
(Clouds, you know; clouds, you know)
’Cause life’s so much brighter when they go
“Medicine” is the third single from the sixth studio album by Bring Me The Horizon - “amo”. The track has a rather evil and aggressive lyrics that contrasts with the romantic music. The song tells about the relationship of Oliver Sykes with Hannah Snowdon. Their marriage ended in a loud divorce in early 2016. Although Oli himself said that the song “ouch” exhaustively tells about this situation, the keyboard player, Jordan Fish made it clear that the song “Medicine” is also associated with this theme. In the life of each person, there are usually people who have a negative impact and next to which there is tension, similar to the expectation of a thunderstorm. These people can be poetically called "clouds". This name is completely offensive and carries a hidden meaning - when such people leave (including from our environment), life without them becomes much brighter!
