Pierce the Veil: Caraphernelia Meaning

Song Released: 2010

Caraphernelia Lyrics

There ain't a thing that you can do that's gonna ruin my night
(But there's just something about)
This dizzy dreamer and her bleeding little blue boy
Licking your fingers like you're done and
You've decided there is so much more...

    he meets a girl in which he really likes and loves so much. but she leaves him, maybe even cheated and she's some dizzy little dreamer with this bleeding little blue boy. hes just all over her like she's done with the past and that there is so much more than vic. its hard for vic. he's pretending like he doesn't care but he really keeps trying to make himself known. its like seeing your failed love somewhere, you ignore them but start changing your behaviotr to make them known. he just cant forget her. its like this evil crazy obsession. he wants to burn her name into his throats and kill her, be the fire that'll catch her. he feels like theres nothing good about picking up the pieces! because somtimes we dont feel any point in fixing ourselves at all. and that whole thing with hjaving a gun and the preacher tried to stop him. shes trying to get married to that guy. THAT REALLY HURTS. So he has the gun. "Hold my heart, its beating for you anyway." In a way she should just take his heart even if she doesnt want it. he'd want to die along with him. he's ruining himself and killing himself for her. in the end he's still her martyr like always, not really helping himself.

    his girlfriend left him but left some of her belongings behind. Cara was her name & he was so in love that she was basically his infatuation. He was lost & addicted to her love it became is "drug". Paraphernalia is a type of drug hence the name Caraphernelia.

    I believe this song is about being cheated on while in a long distance relationship. Say in this case it was the girl who cheated. She shattered the boys heart and its incredibly painful for him. She left him and now he has to pick up the pieces of his heart and he's trying to be strong. The only person that he will let see that he is truly broken is his mother. Everything he does or sees reminds him of her.

    I think it means he can't forget all the stuff they have done together and loves her so much he would burn her name in his throat or even kill himself. He still loves her a lot even though she left him but he still has the pain of her in his memories and all around him he sees her

    A condition in which someone abandons you, but leaves their belongings behind, including painful memories!

    The song is about a girl Vic met named Cara he was in relationship with but she cheated on him because he was touring to much so they broke up.

    I think maybe when he say "don't mind me I'm just reaching for your necklace" could be him trying to strangle her and she notices so he's like nah man I'm not doing anything...

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    After doing some research I found that Caraphernelia is actually a disease in which your heart is broken and there are consent reminders of that pain where ever you look.

    Vic's(the singer)girlfriend broke up with him and left some stuff at his house."What's so good about picking up the pieces"taking the stuff she left at his house."Don't mind me i'm just reaching for your necklace" might mean he wants her(in this case her necklace)back."What if i can't forget you?"is talking about his longing for her.There is many meanings for these sad lyrics.

    This song talks about a girl (his girlfriend, called Cara), who leaves him and leaves her stuff behind, so when he says, "picking up the pieces", he is referring to the paraphernalia of Caroline, (Caroline + Paraphernalia makes the title Caraphernelia).

    The chorus is pretty

    Girlfriend breaks up and leaves all her things behind. Now he is "picking up the pieces" with pieces he means the things she left behind."Don't mind me I'm just reaching for your necklace"could be sarcastic towards him wanting her and not the things (in this case her nacklace) she left him with."What if I can't forget you" speaks for his longing for her.

    My opinion is that there is a much deeper sense behind these sad lyrics. And a few double meanings, too. In the end every listener has a personal interpretation anyways.
