Fallen Angels
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Scream, shout
Scream, shout
We are the fallen angels

We are the in between
Cast down as sons of war
Struck to the earth like lightning
On this world we're torn

We won't cause the pain of living out their law
Take joy in who you are
We know are wings are flawed

We're bored to death in heaven and all alone in hell
We only want to be ourselves

We scream (we scream), we shout (we shout)
We are the fallen angels
We scream (we scream), we shout (whoa, whoa)

To those who sing along
No need to feel the sorrow
We scream (we scream), we shout (whoa)
We are the fallen angels

Follow the morning star
A light when darkness fell
The passion left unholy
Now you found yourself
We have no where to go
No one to wish us well
A cry to find our home
Our stories they will tell

We're bored to death in heaven and all alone in hell
We only want to be ourselves

We scream (we scream), we shout (we shout)
We are the fallen angels
We scream (we scream), we shout (whoa, whoa)

To those who sing along
No need to feel the sorrow
We scream (we scream), we shout (whoa)
We are the fallen angels

Scream, shout
We are the fallen angels
Scream, shout (whoa, whoa)

We scream (we scream), we shout (we shout)
We are the fallen angels
We scream (we scream), we shout (whoa, whoa)

To those who sing along
No need to feel the sorrow
We scream (we scream), we shout (whoa)
We are the fallen angels

We scream, we shout
We are the fallen angels
We scream, we shout
Whoa, whoa
Whoa
We shout (whoa)
We are the fallen angels

Overall Meaning

Black Veil Brides's “Fallen Angels” is a powerful piece of music that represents the struggles of individuals dealing with their identity amid societal pressures. The song starts with a repetition of “we are the fallen angels” with the lines “scream, shout” that create an intense and emotional tone. The band uses the words “cast down as sons of war” to represent people's experiences of being rejected by society and feeling like they are in between two worlds. The line “struck to the earth like lightning” suggests the intensity of the pain and damage caused by this rejection.


The chorus emphasizes their identity as “fallen angels” who won't cause themselves pain by adhering to society’s rules. They embrace their flaws, knowing that they are not perfect, but live joyfully without conforming to societal expectations. The song's sense of struggle is evident in lines like “We're bored to death in heaven and all alone in hell,” where the band accentuates the emptiness that comes with not fitting in.


In the end, the band encourages listeners to embrace their identity and follow their passion while staying true to themselves. The song celebrates the idea of being yourself and standing up for who you are, no matter what anyone else might think.

@@ratchet2002 Judging the entertainers righteously:
they are:
DECEIVERS
MTFs and FTMs
cowards
masons puppets
greedy
in love of all lies
demon possessed
members of one big club: FREEMASONRY

And they all let us know, by placing the masonic hand signs and symbols into all music videos, movies, concerts, magazines, album covers…..



(As if judging is often unjust by many, so is free speech willed with nonsense , because of the lack of knowledge. 1st go and gain KNOWLEDGE, which you missing and then worry about you being allowed to judge and speak free or not. Take a listen around the world, many are just noise makers, having no knowledge about that they talk about, nobody truly listens them. These 2 verses describe perfectly many human souls situation:
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Job 34:35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.)
