Bring Me The Horizon

​medicine Lyrics

[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, oh)
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

About “​medicine”

“medicine” is the third single from BMTH’s sixth studio album, amo. It has aggressive and directly angry lyrics, contrasting with romantic love songs like “mother tongue.”

The song centers around Oliver Sykes’ last relationship with Hannah Snowdon. Their marriage ended in a messy divorce in early 2016. While Oli has explained that the song “ouch” also talks about that situation, keyboardist Jordan Fish revealed that “‘medicine’ is connected to that too.”

Musically, the song focus on the pop and electronic side of the band—different from the last single, “wonderful life,” which was arguably the heaviest one on the album. This annoyed some old fans and the band also dissed them in “heavy metal,” as the song is directed to the “hipster fans.”

The official video for “мedιcιne” subtly references artworks released for their 2010 album, There Is a Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let’s Keep It a Secret.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    It’s about people who are negative influences and how when they leave your life things get much better. It’s a mixture of the electronic and radio-friendly elements of our band, but it’s still got characteristics of some of the bigger songs we’ve done before. You’d need to ask Oli who exactly that’s about, but I can think of a few people it might be about.

  • What have the artists said about the video?

    “medicine” goes about toxic relationships or toxic people and how they keep us trapped and absorb all our energy. This music video represents the feelings and emotions that someone can experience while going through a toxic relationship.

    The video shows a 3D generated Oliver Sykes in a more real world versus another world that represents his memories and feelings. The animated face goes through this process of pain, lost, suffering, angriness and anxiety. It is a hypnotic and disturbing visual trip where viewers can see and experience extreme emotions and feelings.

    The whole video is designed as a game of contraries where we can also distinguish two different visual languages: Real world (dark aesthetic) vs Memories and feelings world (pop and friendly aesthetic).
