Please, don’t run,

Grab your phone and go to your room,

Listen to the beat of the drum,

And sing along or hum.

Don’t turn out the light,

Don’t turn to drugs and get high,

Listen to him hit that high-


Take a trip with me, 

To the world of metal screams,

And beautiful strings.

Where impossible things are always seen.

In a world where everything is negative,

Listen to them speak the positive.

When they know you down,

Listen to Kellin tell you to wear the armor of your frown.

When the world turns to black,

Turn to Black Veil Brides,

And when you feel you’re falling,

Fall in reverse.

"listen to him hit that high- note" is referring to Brendon Urie.

"beautiful strings" is obviously the sound of guitars.

"where impossible things are always seen" refers to when a fan in a wheelchair was able to crowd-surf due to the other fans at a metal concert.

"Wear the armor of your frown" refers to the song Kick Me

The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.

This is amazing! It's like a tribute and has deep symbolic language. My mom is an English major and we're both into this sort of thing.
