Knives & Pens

Posted: September 11, 2012 in Lyrics, Music

Black Veil Brides

Alone at last, we can sit and fight.
And I’ve lost all faith in this blurring light,
{Stay right here we can change our plight.
Storming through this despite what’s right.}
One final fight, for this tonight.
Whoa…
With knives and pens we made our plight.
Lay your heart down the ends in sight.
Conscience begs for you to do what’s right.
{Everyday it’s still the same dull knife,
Stab it through and justify your pride.}
One final fight, for this tonight.
Whoa…
With knives and pens we made our plight.
Whoa…
I can’t go on without your love, you lost, you never held on.
{We tried our best, turn out the light,
Turn out the light.}
{Whoa…}
One final fight, for this tonight.
Whoa…
With knives and pens we made our plight.
Whoa…
I can’t go on without your love, you lost, you never held on.
{We tried our best, turn out the light,
Turn out the light.}

In honor of Suicide Prevention Day, I think this song is perfect. Black Veil Brides lead singer Andy Biersack seems to know exactly what his fans are going through. When he was going to school, we was picked on and called all sorts of names. Many of his fans are actually going through the same kind of situation. Andy wrote this song to say that people have a choice. This is very true. Everyone has a choice, Andy choose to take a pen and write meaningful songs for his fans rather then the blade. He wants his fans to do the same.

Suicide is not that answer for a small problem. It’s a permanent solution. The only thing I ask for anyone that reads this, don’t YouTube, read the lyrics first and think about the words. If you do YouTube this video, don’t judge Andy by his look or the sound of the music. Keep in mind the words. This song alone has saved a lot of Black Veil Brides fans. This includes me and my sister. If you feel the need to cut yourself over anything, pick up a pen and just start writing about how you feel. Or even talk to someone like an older *and understanding* sibling, teacher, counselor, someone like that.

So next September 10, write LOVE on your wrists. Wear YELLOW – it’s not just to support our troops.
