Vic wrote 'Circles' after hearing about the Paris attacks at the Bataclan. It's written about two friends trying to save themselves from something because he heard that many at the Bataclan were trying to save...
Listen, do you hear my heart beat thump over the monitors?
You pretend to close your eyes
Don't breathe in
Pieces of candy and leaks of light (leaks of light)
Paint the floor 'round me
Then without hesitating (hesitating)

You took my hand and then we both started running
Both started running
There's no place to go
Another bullet and we both started running
Both started running too
Save yourself, don't ever look back
Nowhere to go and so we both spin around in circles

Creeping through these labyrinths I find
Another dead end to the weekend
But is this real life?
Paper hearts turned ash begin to fly
Over our heads I begin
Screaming while the exit signs read heaven's waiting

You took my hand and then we both started running
Both started running
There's no place to go
Another bullet and we both started running
Both started running too
Save yourself don't ever look back
Nowhere to go and so and we both spin around in circles, oh

And I said, hey, what's on your mind?
I think about my life without you and I start to cry
And I said, hey, it's alright
We'll make it
I love you and I'll never leave your side

Oh
You took my hand and then we both started running
Both started running
There's no place to go
Another bullet and we both started running
Both started running too
Save yourself don't ever look back
Nowhere to go and so we both spin around in circles, circles
Oh let's go

Circles

    General Comment“That was a special one because I got to co-write it with my friend Curtis Peoples and my other buddy Steve Miller. We wrote that in L.A. at Steve’s studio. I let that one sit lyrically. I didn’t touch it for a while. I didn’t want to have any pre- conceptions about what it was about. In Seattle at the end, I wrote it in a matter of four hours at a coffee shop. I had been waiting for the right topic to write about. When I found what I wanted to write about, it came so easily. Basically, I wrote that for the people who lost their lives in the Paris attacks at The Bataclan. What affected me the most was when I watched the Eagles of Death Metal talk about what happened. They said a lot of people died trying to save their friends. That was so crazy to me, thinking about these kids at a show trying to save each other, risking their lives, and losing their lives. We’d played that venue two years previous to that day with Bring Me The Horizon. That got me thinking too; that could’ve been any of our bands, any of our friends, or anyone of us. The whole situation just hit me right at home. I wrote the song about two kids at the show. It’s a story about two friends trying to save each other as it’s all going down.”
