Collapse
Heart-Set Self-Destruct Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Silver lines bled red
In the palm of an angry gods hand
And I miss you swimming into the sky
Like a dove flying to find peace of mind
The warmth in your voice grows cold
Your inner breath fades into a whisper
The diamonds in your eyes go blind
As I scratch out the lust from your mind
Our memories send a shiver down my spine
Cutting out our bones to find the great Divine
Our love shifts into binary lines
And I can't be here without you
This is my collapse

I look up to the stars
And I see your name in the constellations
I felt lifeless
And now it's a parallax
As our worlds divide

I look up to the stars
And I see your name in the constellations
But I love the way you say it takes time
For invisible cuts to heal

Cut me up inside
Sectumsempra cut me up inside
Sectumsempra leave me dead inside

And I wonder if you see me behind these crystal eyes in this world of lies

I won't beg from my knees I am my own king
I will not go to the grave with your memory haunting me
I won't beg from my knees I am my own worst enemy
I fear I'll go to the grave with your memory haunting me

I won't read my name scared on your thigh wondering
If this is how it was supposed to be or if there was something greater at the hand of god
And I'm on my own and no cry from the depths of my soul has ever saved me
See the broken man in me please stay help me

I look up to the stars
And I see your name in the constellations
I felt lifeless
And now it's a parallax
As our worlds divide

I look up to the stars
And I see your name in the constellations




But I love the way you say it takes time
For invisible cuts to heal

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Collapse" by Heart-Set Self-Destruct depict a state of emotional turmoil and the aftermath of a failed relationship. The opening lines, "Silver lines bled red, in the palm of an angry god's hand," suggest pain and suffering caused by external forces. The singer longs for the presence of their loved one, symbolizing a sense of security and peace ("I miss you swimming into the sky, like a dove flying to find peace of mind"). However, the warmth and intimacy they once shared begin to disappear ("The warmth in your voice grows cold, your inner breath fades into a whisper").


The lyrics also allude to the loss of love and connection through metaphors ("The diamonds in your eyes go blind, as I scratch out the lust from your mind"). The memories of the relationship evoke both longing and discomfort ("Our memories send a shiver down my spine, cutting out our bones to find the great Divine"). The lyrics express a sense of dependence and the inability to cope without the presence of the other person ("And I can't be here without you, this is my collapse").


The chorus emphasizes the singer's ongoing struggle to heal from the wounds of the relationship ("I look up to the stars and I see your name in the constellations, but I love the way you say it takes time for invisible cuts to heal"). The repetition of this line suggests the difficulty and time it takes to heal and move on from a painful experience. The song also touches upon themes of self-empowerment and the singer's determination to break free from the memories that haunt them ("I won't beg from my knees, I am my own king").

Experiencing a profound emptiness and lack of vitality

For invisible cuts to heal

Cut me up inside
Feeling deeply hurt and wounded on the inside


Sectumsempra cut me up inside
Using a powerful and painful spell to describe the intense emotional suffering


Sectumsempra leave me dead inside

And I'm on my own and no cry from the depths of my soul has ever saved me
Feeling completely alone and abandoned, realizing that no desperate plea or expression of inner turmoil has ever brought salvation or relief


See the broken man in me please stay help me
Desperately pleading for someone to acknowledge and understand the shattered and vulnerable state of being, seeking support and assistance
