Black Veil Brides: Sweet Blasphemy Meaning

Sweet Blasphemy Lyrics

Through sadness you have taught us to be one with the crowd
Unveil the sacred order, hymns of falling down
You told the greatest stories, of love and bleeding crowns
But to the sick and hungry, you can not be found

We are young and we are...

    I think that it's talking about someone who has been through a lot and can be an example to all who have the same problems. And not believing a lie that someone tells you, you aren't good enough, or finding the true meaning of life and ignoring what people think about you. And looking beyond exterior. And you can join the fight for being bale to be what YOU really want to and not be judged for it.

    I don't think it means anything against Christians. Its saying that you don't have to fit in just be who you are. I know blasphemy means impious utterance or action concerning God or sacred things... But think deeper than that. 'Sacred things' maybe such as fitting in?

    Well believe what you want just think deeper about it. Songs mean different things to different people. But if you love this song and you are Christian and you think it means something bad... It doesn't mean you can't listen to it. Listen to anything you want. I hope this helps.

    umm btw it has religious undertones check the vocab of sum of the words its talking about how just because you dress in black doesn't mean god will hate you and that all that religious bullshit is just that bullshit, the out in the open message IS be who you want not who THEY want.

    This song isn't evil or blasphemous towards Christianity. It simply just says that be who you are and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I myself an a Christian and I do not see any evil in this song. All that it states is that we all must be who we are and not listen to lies and judgemental jerks who turn something beautiful and hopeful into something bad(hence the name Sweet Blasphemy) and if that is blasphemy then so be it.

    This is what happened when you say you are Christian but your life doesn't look like Christ. They totally mock these kind of people with this song, not God.Another good point from bvb

    Andy Biersack himself - "When I wrote this song I was dealing with a lot of evangelical Christians, people that warped the vision of Christianity, which is essentially a message of 'hope' and 'love' and turned it into something of 'hate' and 'exclusion'. There's a lot of confusion about [Sweet Blasphemy]. This song isn't called 'F**k Christians' this song is called 'F**k Judgmental People Who Take Something That Was Meant to Be Beautiful and Help People's Lives and Turn It Into Something That F**king Kills Other People and Kills People Just For Being Different' and that's not fair! (Reminds me of a certain Fall Out Boy song title...) That is not right and that is not fair! There is absolutely no reason that someone who lives their life according to every single rule under the sun, that is passed down by God or anything else, would go to hell simply because they were born into a Hindu family or they were born into another kind of family that didn't worship the same exact God. There is no reason for that! It is unfair and it is not right! We are all people in this world and we are all royally f**ked and we know that... This song is called Sweet Blasphemy and it goes out to every motherf**ker asshole who ever went to Church on a Sunday and then on Monday threw a f**king brick at my house. That ain't right and that's not what Jesus wanted."

    So, really, the point here is that people have turned religion into something that it was never supposed to be.

    I believe in God, I truly do. Religion is not evil. Religion tells you to be yourself as long as you're not harming anybody and living peacefully and overall not doing anything wrong (by wrong I mean killing people, hurting people, causing disturbance and violence for no reason, etc)But people have changed things, they've changed religion. They say homosexuality is wrong, even though GOD makes homosexual people, everything is made and done by God. People say that being different and not interacting with people and being anti social is bad. They make pointless laws and rules according to the things that they find wrong or dislike for some reason. Religion is not really forceful, fake religious people are. This song is for the rules that those dumb people have made, not for the rules that GOD has made.

    It's not completely directed towards God, you can take it any way you like. The lines that people think are directed towards God can be about the people who tell us what to do and make rubbish laws and rules idk

    People need to stop saying that this song isn't anti-religion. It is. Look up the definition of Blasphemy. It means to speak out against God or to talk of sacred things negatively. The fact that its called Sweet Blasphemy means he is happy to speak out against the forceful religion.

    I believe it is speaking from the point of view of a person that has been pushed down so many times, whether it be because of what they believe in, how they look, dress, or what they may like. This song, in my opinion, is a just a big "f*** you" to all the people that think their way is better, or that you wont get anywhere in life because of what religion (if any) you believe in, sexual preference, etc. "That I wont believe this lie, I know there is something more inside" could mean that there are people shouting profanities at you, but you know that they do not speak the truth. You know who you are and you embrace it. "Something more than they can be" might mean that those people are holding back and are afraid to become their own person because of a belief or people they associate themselves with, while the 'outcast' isn't afraid and will not hold back for anyone.

    Okay, listen up, IDIOTS! It's not bashing religion (Christianity, to be more specific), but it's about judgmental people. I highly agree with this song. It tells you not to judge and criticize people before you get to know them. It has nothing to do with religion at all. Jeesh.

    It's saying that people claim Christianity to be such an amazing religion, yet when we actually need help, God isn't there for us. I myself am Christian, but support the song, since I don't try to push my beliefs on anybody else. He's saying don't just to with the crowd, be who you want to be. There's so much more in life then just black and white, there's grey too.

    He is singing about how fitting in is blasphemy. It is nothing concerning religion but merely how people believe that fitting in is right just as people believe that believing in God is right. He has never followed a religion and he is also not following the way of the popular people. He says that it is okay to stand out and okay to be different.

    I think it is about being who you want to be and not what others want you be. If you listen it rock listen to rock. Be your own person and dont let anyone change who you really are inside

    Ok if you are just going by the lyrics it's relatively clear that this is a song that promotes the humanist/atheist philosophy. Embracing that philosophy means rejection of Christian theology as it teaches that we NEED Christ. Rejecting Christ constitutes blasphemy. That being said I completely understand why people feel this way. The church is weak and corrupt and has failed and continues to fail all of us. I though continue to embrace Christian theology and have faith that true Christians will gain credibility with people like Andy with our generosity, humility and obedience to our Lord. The song sounds great btw.
