Dying In LA Lyrics

Play "Dying In LA"
on Amazon Music

The moment you arrived
They built you up
The sun was in your eyes
You couldn't believe it

Riches all around
You're walking
Stars are on the ground
You start to believe it

Every face along the boulevard is a dreamer just like you
You...

    Personally, I think the meaning of it is suicide. On January 29th, 2019 I went to a Panic! At The Disco show and Brendon Urie played Dying in LA and before the show we were given colored slips of paper to hold over our flashlights on our phones during the song (Same goes for Girls/Girls/Boys). On the front of it, it had the suicide prevention hotline and it said to hold it over the flashlight to raise awareness for suicide.

    To me, the message of the song is quite simple. I believe it to be a way to let people know they should not get caught up in the success of their lives. It's always okay to celebrate but you have to understand in a world of people who want to be where you are, they will do anything to get there and not look back. In other words, do not get caught up in your success because you can become someone who was once at the top to someone who has nothing is such a short period of time. To quote the song, singer-songwriter for the band, Brendon Urie, says, “Every face along the boulevard is a dreamer just like you. You looked at death in a tarot card and you saw what you had to do. But nobody knows you now. When you're dying in LA”. I believe this portion of the song exemplifies the exact message of the song itself.

    A great song with a story, this is about being brought up in LA, facing great moments of fame, but getting to the realization that fame isn't all good.

    This is quite simple. Dying in LA is taking about the first time being famous or rich. How people raise you up and make you think you are on top of the world. Until you are brought into a whole new world of fame that is not the most pleasant. Therefore you are first brought up in LA you will die in LA.
