Drag Me To The Grave

Album: Black Veil Brides (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This track was inspired by a glut of suicides that happened during the recording process of Black Veil Brides IV. Frontman Andy Biersack explained to Loudwire: "Lyrically it came from a morbid subject. During the making of the record we experienced - people we know and famous people like Robin Williams - a lot of suicide going on. One of the people who worked near us during the studio time in Vancouver unfortunately took her own life and that was incredibly difficult."

    "So we started thinking about that and people we know who have dealt with that," he continued. "People say a silly, stupid thing that suicide is cowardly and our feeling on the song is that it's more about the idea that I don't ever want to feel like I'm in that place. I won't let the demons drag me to the grave, I won't let that happen."
