Black Veil Brides – Devil In The Mirror lyrics

[Verse:]
We are created, the suffering ones
Condemned by the dying, we sing out in tongues
Caught in obsession with all that we love
Never look forward, just straight down the gun


[Pre-Chorus:]
Woooooah
I can't take it anymore
Woooooah
Every day feels like a war


[Chorus:]
The devil in the mirror screamin' that my heart is flawed
I'm never gonna let you win
Now I will not surrender, even if I start to fall
I swear to you I'll rise again


[Instrumental]

[Verse 2:]
Cast the illusions of hatred & pride
Take the communion & faith they provide
I'm just a human, not ready to die
My voice is a weapon, my fear is a lie


[Pre-Chorus:]
Woooooah
I can't take it anymore
Woooooah
Every day feels like a war
!

[Chorus:]
The devil in the mirror screaming that my heart is flawed
I'm never gonna let you win
Now I will not surrender, even if I start to fall
I swear to you I'll rise again!

[Instrumental]

[Pre-Chorus:]
Woooooah
I can't take it anymore
Woooooah
Every day feels like a war

[Chorus: X2]
The devil in the mirror screamin' that my heart is flawed
I'm never gonna let you win
Now I will not surrender, even if I start to fall
I swear to you I'll rise again!

    This is how I see it. When we look in the mirror we see ourselves. We see our reflections. And through our reflection we start seeing our faults, our imperfections, what makes us not good enough in our eyes. Like that our reflection makes us feel worthless and give us the message 'you are not worth it' the way devil does. So I guess 'the devil in the mirror' simply means the reflection that shows us our faults. Which leads us to despise ourselves and sometimes harm ourselves. The set of lyrics that says ' I'm never gonna let you win' means, 'I will never let what mirror shows me define me. Or get in my way.' Or I will never let that devil win and start despising myself or harm myself'.

    I really have no idea if this is what Abdy meant when he wrote this song. But this is how I see it. Hope this helps.
