This wall of stone
That they built to cage our minds
Grip the call of changing times
Like no one's home
They will burn down every bridge
Spread the word of ignorance
All blind to your eyes
Forget the innocent

Say a prayer, every...

    I kind of thought it was about our future "this wall of stone they built to cage our minds" as in the government is controlling us and he's the outsider because he's the only one that notices. "Spread the word of ignorance" like the government will try to keep us as dumb as possible so we know nothing and therefore don't rebel. "All to blind your eyes" we can't see that this is going on.

    i think it's about being an outsider in religious terms, ie 'this wall of stone that they built to cage our minds' is like how religion stops you from asking questions and sort of cages you in so i think it's about rejecting religion. or it could be about being bullied and not fitting in idk

    I believe, since most of Black Veil Brides were bullied in high school, its like talking about high school bullying.

    "This wall of stone, that they built to cage our minds" They block you and put you down, they control you sort of.

    I think it's about how because of what people wear or how they act, they become "Outsiders" They all were "Outsider's" in school. That's my interpretation.
