Mayday Parade – Black Cat lyrics

Close up camera one
The hero sings in this scene
The boy that gets the girl gets to go home where they get married
But stop the tape,
The sunset still looks fake to me
The hero looks like he can't breathe
The damsel just left everything

You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
And you're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa, yeah
You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
And you're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa

Oh close up camera two
Cause the hero dies in this scene
Your inspiration is the loss of absolutely everything
And flashback on the girl
As we montage every memory
And we bleed out in the bathroom sink
And we fade out as the soundtrack sings:

You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
And you're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa, yeah
You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
And you're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa

She said get your hands off of my star
It's not your part but all your fault
And this jealous actress has a habit of making things sound way too tragic
Get your hands off of my star
It's not your part but all your fault
And this jealous actress has a habit of making things sound way too tragic

And this jealous actress has a habit
Of making things sound way too tragic
Oh this jealous actress has a habit
Of making things sound way too tragic.

You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
You're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa

You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
And you're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa, oh my god
You're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
And you're gonna burn the city down right now
Whoa whoa-ahh

And this jealous actress has a habit
Whoa

    For me it means that: there is this guy who's in love with a girl, but she is with someone else, or elses, she's more like a heartbreacker girl. And when he understood that, when he finally saw what was happening, he kind of lost his mind, he can't think straight and he's really lost. But one thing he knows is that girl he absolutely loved cheated and broke his heart.

    I don't really understand this song, the meaning gets lost in the imagery. I won't say I don't like it, but I won't let my little sister listen to it, because she might take something from it that I don't. I think it is about how fake people are and how destructive people are. I don't know though. U2 also refers to a woman as a "black cat", I guess I should look up the term for other meanings.
