This Is Gospel
Panic! at the Disco Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This is gospel for the fallen ones
Locked away in permanent slumber
Assembling their philosophies
From pieces of broken memories

Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Their gnashing teeth and criminal tongues conspire against the odds
But they haven't seen the best of us yet

If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
'Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours
The fear, the fear of falling apart

Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

This is gospel for the vagabonds
Ne'er-do-wells, insufferable bastards
Confessing their apostasies
Led away by imperfect impostors

Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

Don't try to sleep through the end of the world
And bury me alive
'Cause I won't give up without a fight

If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
'Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours
The fear, the fear of falling apart

Ooh oh oh ooh, the fear of falling apart
Ooh oh oh ooh, the fear, the fear of falling apart

Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart
The fear of falling apart

Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart
The fear of falling apart

Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart
The fear of falling apart





Ooh oh oh ooh, this is the beat of my heart
The fear of falling apart

Overall Meaning

The song "This Is Gospel" by Panic! at the Disco seems to be about different groups of people who have been abandoned or betrayed and are struggling to come to terms with their experiences. The first verse talks about the "fallen ones", who are locked away and trying to piece together their shattered memories to create some sort of philosophy or understanding of their situation. They are overwhelmed by their own thoughts and fears, causing them to feel disconnected from others. The chorus, "If you love me let me go, 'cause these words are knives that often leave scars, the fear of falling apart, and truth be told, I never was yours. The fear, the fear of falling apart," references the idea that sometimes it is better to let someone go than to hold on and hurt them with hurtful words and actions, leading to a fear of being abandoned and alone.


The second verse talks about "vagabonds, ne'er-do-wells, insufferable bastards" who feel like they are constantly judged and looked down upon by society. These individuals are meant to represent anyone who feels like they do not fit in or are seen as outcasts. Despite this, they have their own beliefs and values, which may not align with society's expectations. Finally, the song encourages listeners not to give up, even in the face of what feels like an impending apocalypse. This last verse might be interpreted as a call to action, urging people to find their inner strength and fight for what they believe in, no matter how dire the situation may seem.
