Devil's Choir
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You've been running for so long, still breathing
Hoping soon to find a song worth singing
Every chapter of this node, they're reading
But you slowly losing hope on bleeding

I'll carry on
My darkest desire
When life sings to you through devil's choirs
Fear (Hey!) wont (Hey!)
Steal what burns in you (Hey!)

I'll carry on
And wait for the fire
My desire, devil's choir
My desire, devil's choir

Raise another broken glass to failure
A simple promise of a crimson savior
Take a look into the life you're leaving
I promise you this isn't pain you're feeling

I'll carry on
My darkest desire
When life sings to you through devil's choirs
Fear (Hey!) wont (Hey!)
Steal what burns in you (Hey!)
I'll carry on and wait for the fire

Rawr
(Come on)

I'll carry on
My darkest desire
When life sings to you through devil's choirs
Fear (Hey!) wont (Hey!)
Steal what burns in you (Hey!)

I'll carry on
And wait for the fire
My desire, devil's choir
My desire, devil's choir

I'll carry on
And wait for the fire
My desire, devil's choir
My desire, devil's choir




My desire, devil's choir
My desire, devil's choir

Every chapter of this "node," or phase of life, has been difficult and draining, and the singer is slowly losing their strength.


However, despite the darkness and hopelessness of the situation, the singer refuses to give up. They declare their "darkest desire," or the thing that keeps them going, and are willing to endure the pain and chaos of life if it means they can continue pursuing it. The "devil's choirs" represent the negativity and obstacles in life that try to hold us back, but the singer refuses to let them extinguish the "fire" within them.


Overall, "Devil's Choir" is a powerful anthem about persevering through difficulties and staying determined even when it feels like everything is against us.
