Unbroken
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Now you're adrift in a sea of lives
A foolish villain in an endless chapter
The demons running behind your eyes
A simple shadow we can fight together

I'll never walk away!

Tear down!
The walls that will surround
Cry out!
Above the burning sound
Show me!
How bleeding hearts can pound
If we stand together, we will be unbroken!

We carry forward into the night
The strength of innocence like children's laughter
An army standing for what is right
We'll fall like angels if we lose what matters

I will not walk away!

Tear down!
The walls that will surround
Cry out!
Above the burning sound
Show me!
How bleeding hearts can pound
If we stand together, we will be unbroken!

Woah, woah, woah, woah

We will not walk away!

Tear down!
The walls that will surround
Cry out!
Above the burning sound
Show me!
How bleeding hearts can pound
If we stand together, we will be unbroken!

Tear down!
The walls that will surround
Cry out!
Above the burning sound
Show me!




How bleeding hearts can pound
If we stand together, we will be unbroken!

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Black Veil Brides's song Unbroken are a call to arms. The listener is adrift in a sea of lives, feeling isolated and alone. The singer of the song is addressing this feeling and acknowledging the demons that run behind our eyes. However, rather than succumbing to them, they advocate for tearing down the walls around us and standing together. Through unity and support, the bleeding hearts can pound, and we can be unbroken.


The second verse continues this message of strength and resilience. The band acknowledges that they carry forward into the night, but it is not fear that propels them. Instead, it is the strength of innocence that they compare to children's laughter. Black Veil Brides continue to lead their army forward, standing for what is right. The lyrics acknowledge the risk that comes with such a bold stance, but they will not walk away. The chorus serves as a rallying cry for all those who need to stand tall and not give up. If they can stand together, they will be unbroken.

Love this song

@charlottewillis5738

Thank you guys.
I listened to your predecessors as a teen and still do today.
They staved off the darkness and kept me from going over the edge in my darkest moments. They also kept me from...ending it....when things seemed so hopeless....
Even when I get depressed now and when things seem so bad....they still help me through. And now added to them are you guys, GloryHammer, Freedom Call, Majesty, and many others that have come along in the 20 years.
As long as I can listen to music ( I have been told that I have an eclectic taste in music) I don't feel alone, I am not depressed, I don't feel things are hopeless.
My outlook is positive and I am calmed.
Most of the bands I listen to have the theme, good vs. evil. Good beating evil.
That brings hope to people who needs it.
Keep rock'in! :-)

1:47 is me. I died when I saw this and legitimately started crying. This is the sign that I needed.  I was depressed, I didn't think I had any value or purpose in life. I thought that if I was gone no one would notice. This proves me wrong. Thank you so much for using the picture I sent in, I'll love you forever and always, and I hope that maybe someday we could tour together

@demonaflame4253

I hope you're doing better after all these years

@joeytithaeridge
