I thout of angels
chocking on their halos
get them drunk on rose water
See how I can get them
pulling out their fragile teech and clip their tiny wings
Anything you say can and will be held against you
So only say my name it will be held...

    If heavens grief, the thoughts of the past can eat you up. And consume you, to the point you just want two do two thi ngs. Get back at him or her. Or are de pressed. I would know, last year I had this one girl I loved soo much, but the problem was she hated med so we socially ruined each other, and our lives became a vast waste land, barren. HELLS REIGN when you realize everything you love or held dear has turned against you. I go back to March 2017 all the time. And then you have 4 weeks to fix a years worth of damage done AFTER the break up but know it won't work. Her name Clara Gross I still never fixed it I qot the schools attention about what was happening, and they tried to bottle up the wildfire rage inside Clara. I figuratively shattered the bottle and watched as the whirlwind blew the emotional and mental he'll all across the school even kids in 7th and 6th even 5th either hates me or hated Clara. So yeah

    It's think it is about two people who have broken up. The guy ends up depressed and wants to be with his ex and will do anything to be with her again, even if it's one day.

    I think that this song is about him wishing he was with a girl again, because "if heavens grief brings hells reign" i believe means that if she wasnt happy without him anymore, then the tears will fall and she will hurt. "Id trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday", everyone knows. All in all, he wants to be with someone again, if only for a day.

    That "Patrick" loved "foxxes" when she was just playing him. and he did something wrong "if I spill my guts the world will never look at you the same" and he loved her "I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday" but she doesn't care for him and never did

    I think it means two EXs are regretting breaking up, but they still aren't sure. One wants revenge and the other wants to be back together. The one who wants revenge is reballious and has gave up and just was depressed. The one who wants to be back together is saying that they hadn't done anything to ruin the others reputation...yet. When the one who wants revenge says stuff about Angels, Hell, and Heavan those are their depressing thoughts. Please no hate.

    Two people break up and want to get together. That's my opinion

    I think it's about a guy who got angels drunk on rose water etc. A girl helps him out and he tells her what he did and that anything she says can and will be held against her and if heavens grief brings hell's rain which is bad he will trade all he's tomorrows for just one yesterday

    My interpretation of this song is that the guy and girl broke up. But the want their love back and would do anything just to have their love back. I don't feel as if its a religious thing. ( Yes they are talking about hell and angels. But I take it as a metaphor)

    I reckon it's a religious thing..... Two enemies one good one bad I suppose fighting over power and to rule all that is in existence. And the writer of the song says if heavens grief brings hell's rain which obviously means that hell's rain is a bad thing as we are all thought through the varioius religions out there that hel is bad. He wouldn't want one day 9th hell's rain he would trade all his days in the future for just one yesterday. Which means he won't experience hell's rain. That's what I think the song means but that's just me. No arguments please.

    I think it's about two enemies who are fighting for the same thing hut fighting against each other, and that they secretly love each other.

    Revenge! It's all i think of when I here this song. Two ex' lovers who would do anything (even sell their souls) to get back at each other. Kindo deep! But lovely track anyway. FOB are back!
