Lyrics for Obey (with YUNGBLUD) by Bring Me The Horizon:

Verse 1: Oliver Sykes
Another day, another post-traumatic order
Brainwashed and feeling fine
I bit off more than I could chew when I looked closer
So I stabbed a fork in my eye

Pre-Chorus: Oliver Sykes
Think I'm losing my fucking mind
Don't know where to turn, now I'm blind
Destroy yourself, it feels so good to fade away
Why'd you wanna hurt yourself?
Die for something else
Don't let your conscience get in the way

Chorus: Oliver Sykes
Obey, we hope you have a lovely day
Obey, you don't want us to come out and play away now, now
There's nothing to see here, it's under control
We're only gambling with your soul

Post-Chorus: Oliver Sykes & YUNGBLUD
Obey, whatever you do
Just don't wake up and smell the corruption
Do you feel that? Yeah

Verse 2: YUNGBLUD
Another day, another systematic nightmare
Commemorate your wonderful life
Bite me first, I'll bite you back, melodramatic laughter
I stabbed a knife in my eye

Pre-Chorus: YUNGBLUD
Think I'm out my fucking mind
Brainwashed and I'm feeling fine
Destroy yourself, it feels too good to fade away
Why do I wanna hurt myself?
Should I die for something else?
I let my conscience get in the way

Chorus: Oliver Sykes & YUNGBLUD
Obey, we hope you have a lovely day
Obey, you don't want us to come out and play away now, now
There's nothing to see here, it's under control
We're only gambling with your soul

Post-Chorus: Oliver Sykes & YUNGBLUD
Obey, whatever you do
Just don't wake up and smell the corruption

Breakdown: Oliver Sykes
When you feed them, it's lethal
Tell me how you're gonna hurt yourself
You call yourselves peaceful
You monsters are people
You fucking monsters are people

Bridge: Oliver Sykes & YUNGBLUD
Obey, we're gonna show you how to behave
Obey, it's nicer when you can't see the chains

Chorus: Oliver Sykes & YUNGBLUD
Obey, we hope you have a lovely day
Obey, you don't want us to come out and play away now, now
There's nothing to see here, it's under control (It's under control)
We're only gambling with your soul (With your soul)

Post-Chorus: Oliver Sykes & YUNGBLUD
Obey, whatever you do
Just don't wake up and smell the corruption
Smell the corruption
Smell the corruption

Song Facts

“Obey” is a long time awaited Bring Me The Horizon collaboration with YUNGBLUD. The song talks about the oppression that people suffer because of world leaders and politicians. It is written mostly from the point of view of the oppressor, as Oli Sykes told Forbes:

It was written in April, May, of this year, and it was very much inspired by everything that’s going on, and very much from the side of the oppressor. I think everyone has been stopped in their tracks, and I think a lot of people are realizing that maybe the people in charge aren’t looking out for our best interest. The way that we’re fed traumatic and devastating news on a daily basis, I think the powers that be or whatever you want to call them, they’ve gotten very good at getting us desensitized to this information, and we have been sleepwalking for a while where we know all this horrible stuff is going on, but we didn’t do anything about it.

The track was officially teased with an Oli Sykes post with a QR code leading to a website with a snippet of the music video.

Directed by Sykes, the music video features him and YUNGBLUD inside giant robots, each one trying to command the city and fighting. In the end, both realize that they just want to be together.
