Pierce the Veil: Circles Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
You pretend to close your eyes
Don't breathe in
Pieces of candy and leaks of light (leaks of light)
Paint the floor 'round me
Then without hesitating (hesitating)
You took my hand...

this songs inspo came from a Paris shooting at a concert. everyone was trying to save everyone else, and that hit him hard, mostly because that's what they do. he wrote this song in the form of two kids trying to save each other instead of themselves. it also relates the the music video. in the video, they went to a hotel owned by a really weird guy who set traps to keep them stuck or held prisoner. they keep trying to save each other, and they never truly get out of it, because once they escape, they turn on the teli and the weird hotel keeper has their I.D.s.

Maybe it is about a shooting because in the song it says "another bullet and we both started running"
VIC'S WORDS ON WHY HE WROTE THE SONG
"I wrote that song in like four hours after I heard what happened in Paris. It kind of reminded me of when [Pearl Jam singer] Eddie Vedder wrote about that boy in the classroom when he wrote "Jeremy." It was a news story that he heard about that devastated him and it was the same way for me. Everyone got hit really hard, and I think musicians got hit in a different way because that's what we do. We play on those stages. At the end of the day, I tried to put a lighter note on it. I wrote about two friends who are trying to save themselves from something, but that was the main inspiration for it. I heard a lot of the people [at the Bataclan] were trying to save their friends. I kept thinking about that. It's not something you would know unless I told you, but I have to be honest about where these songs come from."

I actually went on the website, and found it's about the Paris Attacks. R.I.P those who were lost... :(

You're way off. The song was about two kids running in a concert during the Bataclan massacre.
