Lyrics for Parasite Eve by Bring Me The Horizon:

Intro: Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares
Накривил е калпачето ей така, па така
Нанагоре-нанадоле, ей така, па така
Накривил е калпачето ей така, па така
Нанагоре-нанадоле, ей така, па така

Verse 1: Oli Sykes
I've got a fever, don't breathe on me
I'm a believer in nobody
Won't let me leave 'cause I've seen something
Hope I don't sneeze, I don't *sneeze*
Really we just need to fear something
Only pretending to feel something
I know you're dying to run
I wanna turn you around

Pre-Chorus: Alissa Salls
Please, remain calm, the end has arrived
We cannot save you, enjoy the ride
This is the moment you've been waiting for
Don't call it a warning, this is a war

Chorus: Oli Sykes
It's the Parasite Eve
Got a feeling in your stomach 'cause you know that it's coming for ya
Leave your flowers and grieve
Don't forget what they told ya, eh-eh
When we forget the infection
Will we remember the lesson?
If the suspense doesn't kill you
Something else will, eh-eh
Move

Verse 2: Oli Sykes
I heard they need better signal
Put chip and pins in the needles
Quarantine all of those secrets
In that black hole you call a brain before it's too late
Really we just wanna scream something
Only pretend to believe something
I know you're baying for blood
I wanna turn you around

Pre-Chorus: Alissa Salls with Oli Sykes
Please, remain calm, the end has arrived
We cannot save you, enjoy the ride
This is the moment you've been waiting for
Don't call it a warning, this is a war

Chorus: Oli Sykes
It's the Parasite Eve
Got a feeling in your stomach 'cause you know that it's coming for ya
Leave your flowers and grieve
Don't forget what they told ya, eh-eh
When we forget the infection
Will we remember the lesson?
If the suspense doesn't kill you
Something else will, eh-eh
It's the Parasite Eve
Got a feeling in your stomach 'cause you know that it's coming for ya
Leave your flowers and grieve
Don't forget what they told ya, eh-eh
When we forget the infection
Will we remember the lesson?
If the suspense doesn't kill you
Something else will

Breakdown: Oli Sykes
You can board up your windows, you can lock up your doors, yeah
But you can't keep washing your hands of this shit anymore
When all the king's sources and all the king's friends
Don't know their arses from their pathogens
When life is a prison and death is the door
This ain't a warning, this is a war, war
This is a war, eh-eh, oh-oh

Chorus: Oli Sykes
It's the Parasite Eve
Got a feeling in your stomach 'cause you know that it's coming for ya
Leave your flowers and grieve
Don't forget what they told ya, eh-eh
When we forget the infection
Will we remember the lesson?
If the suspense doesn't kill you
Something else will, eh-eh

Post-Chorus: Oli Sykes
It's the Parasite Eve, eh-eh
It's the Parasite Eve, eh-eh
It's the Parasite Eve (Parasite Eve), eh-eh
Eh-eh, eh-eh

Outro: Alissa Salls
We cannot save you
We cannot save you
We cannot save you
We cannot save you
We cannot save you

Song Facts

“Parasite Eve,” the second single from Post Human, was recorded during the 2020’s quarantine and, although the inspiration for the track didn’t come from the COVID-19 pandemic, there are a lot of references to it. The title comes from a 1998 survival horror game of the same name released by Square. The band said regarding the song:

We’ve got to look that face to face. We’ve got to confront it. We’ve got to feel it. We’ve got to breathe it. We’ve got to live it sometimes to get through this. You know, it’s understandable that we want to repress these feelings, and sometimes becoming civilised requires us to repress aspects of ourselves that don’t fit in with the structured ideal of our society.

During the promotion of the song, the band changed their helix logo for a broken version.

The song was expected to be released on 2020, June, 10th, but was postponed due to the George Floyd protests and all Black Lives Matter protests around the world. As Oliver Sykes stated:

So as some of you know we were planning on releasing a new track this week. But with the incredible movement that is taking place currently we don’t feel comfortable releasing and promoting anything that takes the focus off what’s important right now. I know you will all understand because we have the best fans in the world and I promise you we won’t make you wait too long and the good news is more music will be coming soon after “Parasite Eve” too. But for now keep fighting the good fight and stay tuned.


The game tells the story of a cop named Aya who is fighting against a biological entity that calls itself Eve, who formed when a mitochondrial cell mutated and evolved, eventually becoming self-aware and seeking a host beyond humanity.

Eve threatens all life on Earth by causing her victims to spontaneously combust. The entity seeks to replace humanity with superior organisms that have control over their own DNA, and considers humanity to be a parasite leeching off the planet.

Also, when asked about what would he like to achieve on his last day alive, Oli Sykes said:

A speed run on Parasite Eve’s hardest setting.

Musically, it was influenced a lot by Oli Sykes playing a game called DOOM Eternal, as well as the contributions of the game soundtrack artist Mick Gordon, giving it a futuristic and cyber overlay.
