Perfect Weapon
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Go!
Awake at night you focus,
On everyone whose hurt you,
And write a list of targets,
Your violent lack of virtue.
Leave us alone!
You're on your own!
Go!
We are breathing,
While you're sleeping, go, (go!)
And leave us alone,
The liars cheating,
Our hearts beating, go, (go!)
And now you're on your own.
Here's to your perfect weapon,
Crack bones with blind aggression,
Like birds whose wings are broken,
You live without direction.
Leave us alone!
You're on your own!
We are breathing,
While your sleeping, go, (go!)
And leave us alone,
The liars cheating,
Our heart's beating, go, (go!)
And now you're on your own.

Go!
Go!
Go!
Go!
And now you're on your own!
Go!
Go!

And leave us alone!
We are breathing,
While your sleeping, go, (go!)
And leave us alone,
The liars cheating,




Our heart's beating, go, (go!)
And now you're on your own.

Overall Meaning

This indicates that the singer has been wronged multiple times and is now seeking revenge. The phrase "violent lack of virtue" is used to describe the singer's actions, indicating that the revenge will be brutal and unforgiving.


The chorus of the song "Here's to your perfect weapon, crack bones with blind aggression, like birds whose wings are broken, you live without direction" showcases the singer's anger towards someone who has hurt them. The "perfect weapon" refers to the person who has wronged the singer, and they are compared to a bird with broken wings, who is aimlessly wandering through life. The singer is suggesting that the person who has wronged them is directionless and broken.


The chorus repeats the phrase "leave us alone, you're on your own" multiple times. This indicates that the singer has had enough, and wants the person who has wronged them to go away and deal with their own problems.

I personally wish the screams weren’t so quiet but the rest sounds so good. This brings me back to middle school, this was my favorite song back then

@rubytaylor6216

Honestly same

@justthatcreator

Yeah, vocals are quiet

@beach2550

They are layered sooo much too. Makes it seem like he might be doing some slight crackling sound into the mic and just layering it 10x or more to make it sound like a real scream
