Knives and Pens

Album: We Stitch These Wounds (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • "Knives and Pens" is about people being judged, and even though they are misunderstood, they'll stick together to stand up for what they believe in. The video is basically Andy Sixx (lead singer and this song's composer) explaining how he can relate to his fans and how he knows what they are going through because of his non-traditional appearance. His main message is "Never Give In." >>

  • Johnny from Dallas, TxI kind of understood the message when I first listened to it, but now I think I have a more complex understanding of it. :)
    Going off topic here, does anyone think Andy is starting to sound like Darth Vader? I know I do. :o
