"Hallelujah" as written by Brendon Urie, James Smith, Butch Walker and John Feldmann....
Oh!
A moment you'll never remember
And a night you'll never forget
Oh!

All you sinners stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Show praise with your body
Stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
And if you can't stop shaking, lean back
Let it move right through ya (Hallelujah)
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers (Hallelujah)

My life started the day I got caught
Under the covers
With secondhand lovers
Oh, tied up in pretty young things
In a state of emergency
Who was I tryna be?

Then the time for being sad is over
And you miss 'em like you miss no other
And being blue is better than being over it (over it)

All you sinners stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Show praise with your body
Stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
And if you can't stop shaking, lean back
Let it move right through ya (Hallelujah)
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers (Hallelujah)

I was drunk and it didn't mean a thing
Stop thinking about
The bullets from my mouth
I love the things you hate about yourself
Just finished a daydream
Who were you tryna be?

Then the time for being sad is over
And you miss 'em like you miss no other
And being blue is better than being over it (over it)

No one wants you when you have no heart and
I'm sitting pretty in my brand new scars and
You'll never know if you don't ever try again
So let's try
Let's try
Let's try

All you sinners stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Show praise with your body
Stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
And if you can't stop shaking, lean back
Let it move right through ya (Hallelujah)
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers (Hallelujah)

All you sinners stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Show praise with your body
Stand up, sing Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
And if you can't stop shaking, lean back
Let it move right through ya (Hallelujah)
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers (Hallelujah)

    My InterpretationI think this song is simply about accepting yourself, no matter how bad or 'sinful' you might be or what you've done in the past.
    Acceptance means not just being comfortable with yourself, but also being able to face the fact that you've made mistakes and you need to fix them and make up for them.
    Brendan said it's about "taking responsibility for things that you felt guilty for in the past and just owning it because now that’s a piece of you, and you can’t get rid of that history". It sums up the song pretty well- being able to stand up and say 'Hallelujah" despite everything that's happened because you still have a chance to change yourself.
