Gravity,
Teach me the ways of retaliation,
I'd like every backbiter to know that audience is always priority, rather than the stage
It all comes down to this.
Look elsewhere for books of narcissism,
Pride is a trend that is far past swollen.
Death through windows,
No longer can I live a life of no control,
These stories we've been writing are water-thin,
It's disheartening because I know that we are capable of vision.
Blemishes are warnings so simply concentrate and apply pressure,
And it's branches will be broken,
The city to be punished,
So many never listen,
And I drown in disgust,
When you will, you ever remember?
When will you realize (that) false statements fall to the feet of dead gods?
False statements fall to the feet of dead gods.

    To plainpreacher. Is being a Christian really a physical thing? Wether u scream or sing a song the meaning is the same. Your right when u say that as christains we are not supposed to be of this world, but is screamo really a sin. You say that we are suposed to SEPERATE from this world which is also somwhat true but are not suposed to reach out and help people find there way to god. Jesus even said" it is not the healthy that need a doctor". Maybe this is TDWPs way of bringing light to a darkened genre and god bless them for that.

    To Plain Preacher..
    You say screaming is of the devil? right...? At my school there are people who worship the devil and are in a screamo band. The Difference is that in a 'Christian' band they are praising God in their lyrics not satan.. if you read all of the devil wears pradas songs which have you even listened to their songs? im geussing you havent. Also it seems your a preacher by your name. so im geussing you have a church.
    Do you have teenagers that werent raised in a church listen to screamo and their parents are atheists and all they hear is how much of a lie and waist God is?
    You probly dont because your a douchebag who denounces their present and they feel like they dont know what they fit in.. If it werent for people like you saying that christianity has a limit to what it can do then your a lier because only thing i would see fair not to allow is for people who ARE denouncing God not to be present in the church until they have givin it up and asked for Gods forgiveness.

    im like the average teenager im 16 and my parents are christians, and ive been in church my whole like. I go to church i listen to christian music. and i try not to cuss or do bad things but everyone isnt perfect so i do them sometimes. but lately i have been questioning who and what is really a christian, is it the people who go out and hit people with Bibles saying youll go to hell if you dont repent and go to church and wear a suit and tie, or is it the everyday person who goes to church and just worships God in their pajamas.. Is their a dress code for God?

    also back to TDWP do you have any idea what their Band name means? It means the devil may look all cool (prada since it is a nice famous person clothing) but in all reality hes a lying thief trying to steal you away from God... read the lyrics to the Song Dogs can grow beards all over.. there is an explanation on what the WHOLE song means.. if you dont want to check it out then your just avoiding the fact that you may be wrong..

    i think its about having one true god, and lifting HIM UP
    they talk about how the crowd praises them,
    when really they should be praising the one true god

    Lol @plainpreacher. And real christians don't resemble the pharisees that jesus dealt with. So why do i feel that same spirit from you even through text on a lyrics page? No i think the one who is deceived here is you brother. The true mark of a christian is not their appearance, but their love. Be careful the way you judge, dear brother. I urge you not to forget the word of god, as it is written, "do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. "
    (matthew 7:1-2)

    Plain preacher, your stereo typical views on how religion or better christianity works are the exact reason i stopped following the path of christianity and started following god alone. This band, the devil wears prada, has found a way to sing (or scream to the lord) loud enough for him to hear their words of praise, you are ignorant, blind, and a bastard. People like you are why the world is so lost in ruin.
