“Scarlet Cross”

My mind remains my pain
I’m tied down to this chain
It spirals as I ache
To find holy embrace
Stay here with me, I’m afraid of my soul
Blackened and left in control
Cannot be free and you can’t deny
The end is coming (The end is coming)

Will we live? When we die?
Just keep on saving our goodbyes
The fear and the cost
The world will stain us with a scarlet cross

A symbol for my shame
The color of your name
It’s how they see you break
And live with my mistakes
Sin for me, cast away from it all
Watching every letter fall
Hold onto me, I can’t let go
The end is coming (The end is coming)

Will we live? When we die?
Just keep on saving our goodbyes
The fear and the cost
The world will stain us with a scarlet cross

Woah
Woah
Woah
With the fear and the cost
The world will stain us with a scarlet cross

Will we live? When we die?
Just keep on saving our goodbyes
The fear and the cost
The world will stain us with a scarlet cross

Woah
Woah
Woah
With the fear and the cost
The world will stain us with a scarlet cross

Woah
Woah
Woah
With a scarlet cross

Woah
Woah
Woah
With a scarlet cross

"Scarlet Cross" is the first single from Black Veil Brides' sixth studio album "The Phantom Tomorrow". The song was premiered on November 13, 2020, accompanied by a music video directed by Patrick Fogarty and based on a concept written by frontman Andy Biersack. The visuals started the story of "The Phantom Tomorrow" main character The Blackbird.
The band told about this track, "We are incredibly excited to share not only this new song 'Scarlet Cross', but also our vision for the world of The Phantom Tomorrow and its characters. We are in the final stages of writing for this record and have begun work on our forthcoming The Phantom Tomorrow graphic novel. We intend to continue to share elements of the story in the coming months and can't wait for everyone to see what we have been working on!"
 Speaking exclusively to Kerrang! about the next music of Black Veil Brides, Andy Biersack revealed, "Over the years we got away from the heavy-riff-big-chorus dynamic, which is what makes Black Veil Brides. Our previous full-length record was very soft, with a lot of shine to it, so the goal was to find a way to make it grand, with a lot of string elements and everything, but still feel like there's an edge built from the riff."
