"(Don't fear) The Reaper" as written by and Donald Roeser....
All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
we can be like they are
Come on baby, don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand, don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly, don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man,

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity,
Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday,
Like Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday,
Redefine happiness
Another 40,000 coming everyday,
We can be like they are
Come on baby, don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand, don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly, don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man,

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared, saying don't be afraid
Come on baby, and she had no fear
And she ran to him, then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye, she had become like they are
She had taken his hand, she had become like they are
Come on baby, don't fear the reaper

    My InterpretationI think this song is basically saying not to fear death or the end, and to take risks as the reaper is usually a symbol of death. The reference of Romeo and Juliet is saying how they embraced death and now will be forever together. At first I thought the last verse was describing the balcony scene in Romeo & Juliet but now I'm not so sure, it almost sounds like suicide.;

    General CommentAwww no comments? :(
    I'm reallly guessing here but i think maybe the reaper refers to maybe someone that loves her but is a little out of order...? Like the reaper is her true love or something.
    Either that or like she is taking the reapers hand as he drags her towards death lik she's committing suicide.
    I honestly don't know but thats my guess.
    I love Pierce The Veil and igot sooo many of my friends started on them!! I just wish i could see them live :(
    I LOVE VIC! <333
