"Fallen Angels" as written by and Josh Abraham Ashley Purdy....
Scream, shout
Scream, shout
We are the fallen angels

We are the in between cast down as sons of war
Struck to the earth like lightning on this world we're torn

We will cause the pain of living out there, love
Take joy in who you are
We know how wings are flown

We're bored to death in heaven and down alone in hell
We only want to be ourselves

We scream, we shout
We are the fallen angels
We scream, we shout, whoa whoa
Too lost to see the road
No need to feel this sorrow
We scream, we shout, whoa
We are the fallen angels

Follow the morning star
On a land when darkness failed
The passion left unholy
Now you found yourself
We have nowhere to go, no one to wish us well
A cry to find a home, our stories they will tell

We're bored to death in heavens and down the alone in hell
We only want to be ourselves

We scream, we shout
We are the fallen angels
We scream, we shout, whoa whoa
Too lost to see the road
No need to feel this sorrow
We scream, we shout, whoa
We are the fallen angels

Scream, shout
We are the fallen angels
Scream, shout

We scream, we shout
We are the fallen angels
We scream, we shout, whoa whoa
Too lost to see the road
No need to feel this sorrow
We scream, we shout, whoa
We are the fallen angels

We scream, we shout
We are the fallen angels
We scream, we shout
Whoa, whoa
We shout
We are the fallen angels

    General CommentI love this song. I am in my english class in eighth grade right now trying to find the actual meaning of this song. I beleive that this song is about people who are seen as freaks and outcasts not trying to fit in.. Being theirselves, and not caring who thinks wrong of them because they know they will prevail in the end... The people who are different always come out big in the end. I mean look at Andy?

    General CommentServantofjesus I'm sorry but don't say that bvb are devil worshipers just because there song tittles!!
    This song basically means that that we just want to be our selves
    Follow the morning star means fallow the same crowd as you are ( preps, jocks, emo,scenes, ect..) and have fun while you do it
    Andy is trying to tell us that us ( emos, scenes ) should just believe in who we are and not let anyone tell us different!!

    My OpinionYou people who say that they are devil worshipers F*ck off! This song is about being different and rebelling against society. The term "Fallen Angels" are used to describe rebellion, its merely a religious METAPHOR!
    You people should get your facts right!

    Song MeaningTo me, I think this song has the basic meaning of their other songs. About how they are the ultimate outcasts and we, The BVB Army, are their followers and shouldn't give up on the fight.
    This song I think that the Fallen Angels are all the outcasts in the world and that there isn't anywhere we belong but we have to keep fighting to live in this world.

    "Scream
    Shout
    Scream
    Shout
    We are the fallen angels"

    This is basically introducing themselves as outcasts or 'Fallen Angels'

    "We are the in between
    Cast down as sons of war
    Struck to the earth like lightning
    On this world we're torn"

    I think this part of the song is saying that us outcasts are put on this Earth to fight for what we believe in. The line "on this world we're torn" I think that means we are in this world but torn between fighting for what we believe in and fitting into society.

    "We won't cause the pain
    Of living out their law
    Take joy in who you are
    We know our wings are flawed"

    I think this is saying that because we are different doesn't mean we cause trouble. And the last 2 lines are saying we know we're not perfect but love who you are.

    "We're bored to death in heaven
    And all alone in hell
    We only want to be ourselves"

    I think this part means we aren't accepted in heaven because we are pure and we are alone in hell because we aren't bad and don't belong there. And the last line is self explanatory.

    "We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! (We shout!)
    We are the fallen angels
    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! Whoa-oh Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh"

    This is saying we scream and shout to be heard.

    "Too lost to feel alone
    No need to feel the sorrow"

    This is saying we are so lost and don't know what to do anymore we don't feel alone. We basically feel nothing.

    "We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! Whoa-oh
    We are the fallen angels"

    Again, we're screaming because us outcasts want to be heard.

    "We'll follow the morning star
    A life when dying is hell
    Their passion left them lonely
    Now you'll find yourself"

    I think this is saying that if we follow our destiny when life is at it's worst we can find who we really are and not be so alone.

    "We have nowhere to go
    No one to wish us well
    The crooks who burned our home
    Our stories they will tell"

    This is saying there is no where that we will every truly fit in. Society has ruined that for us. And that there is no one there for us because of who we are.

    The rest of the song is just repeated.

    We're bored to death in heaven
    And all alone in hell
    We only want to be ourselves

    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! (We shout!)
    We are the fallen angels
    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! Whoa-oh Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Too lost to feel alone
    No need to feel the sorrow

    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! Whoa-oh
    We are the fallen angels

    Scream
    Shout
    We are the fallen angels
    Scream
    Shout
    Whoa-oh Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! (We shout!)
    We are the fallen angels
    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! Whoa-oh Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Too lost to feel alone
    No need to feel the sorrow

    We scream! (We scream!)
    We shout! Whoa-oh
    We are the fallen angels

    We scream!
    We shout!
    We are the fallen angels

    We scream!
    We shout! Whoa-oh Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

    We shout!
    Whoa-oh
    We are the fallen angels

    Song MeaningWhoo first comment ever! This song is awesome i love the sound on this song its so awesome but anyway i think the meaning of the song is about how as we grow older we lose the innocence of being little kids, "fallen angels", and how we may turn to this type of "aggressive" music as we get older which makes us scream and shout out of joy. Some of the lyrics are talking about how we use music to express ourselves like the line "We have nowhere to go, no one to wish us well, the crooks who burned our home, our stories they will tell" but thats just what i think i could be totally off.

    My OpinionI think a song is a very meaningful song i think this song tells alot about what the band thinks about and i feel that people who make fun of gothic teenagers are just jerks i think know how these teenagers feel and that is pain i hate the names that they are called like for a example emo i hate that name it upsets me me i think that they should be treated the same way as anybody and why they are sucidal is because they feel left out and i wish people cared for them i love Black Veil Brides i think they are trying to help with this problem and i want to say to the kids and teenagers that feel left out hold on dont worry about what people say about you and if they make fun of you just ignore them they are just trying to find ways to bully you and i do think that is totally wrong and i am sorry that is happening no one desrves to be amde fun of.

    General CommentI absolutly love this song. Its my favorite song of all time and it probably will be for the rest of my life. This song has a different meaning to me then what most people would suspect. The meaning actually centers around the title of the song. The words Fallen Angels to me mean that Fallen Angels are people who have been made fun of, tortured, or belittled because they are different. I have been made fun of since 4th grade and it hasnt stoped. The rest of the song means what society thinks of them as well as how they were treated. Thats what this song means to me and by this definition of a Fallen Angel, I am a Fallen Angel.

    General Commentwow I just love this, devil worship lmao. This is the very meaning of the song, we only want to be our selves no matter how weird and not be judged, and this guy goes and jugdes. The fallen angels acts as a metaphor because they didn't want to act as they should and got persecuted. servantofjesus should learn that lyrics are often poems and then go learn about figures of speak, oh yes he wasted his time masturbating. There are a lot of metaphors in the bible this proves that you don't read the bible or you believe that every word is meant to be taken literal, then you are just like the terrorist that think Jihad is a literal meaning, you all need to educate yourselves. Plus you need to do your research before making comments, this is how wars get started.

    It is known that Andy is an atheist, so why is he singing about fallen angels? He doesn't even believe in God! Oh that might imply that fallen angels is the figure of speak he uses to imply something else but what? oh yes i read that Andy was persecuted for the way he dressed, "emo" but a bit girlish. Lots of people hated him at school just because he dressed different which caused lots of emotional and mental pain and wounds. So in the song he uses the fallen angels as a image to represent that part of his life and experience. We only want to be ourselves like all other normal people. You see how lyrics work servantofjesus???!!! And if you think about it, Jesus was persecuted for being different, if there's anyone the should understand this songs it's you.

    For people who have gone through similar circumstances, we totally understand this. Most of the worlds hatred is based on judging before understanding.
