Paramore’s “Brick by Boring Brick”: A Song about Mind Control


“Brick by Boring Brick” by the band Paramore describes the adventures of a girl in a fantasy land. The wonder quickly turns into a nightmare and the friendly creatures turn against her. What is the meaning of this video? The answer is concealed in the symbolism of the video and alludes to a disturbing practice: mind control.


I’ve been often asked if the symbolism described in my previous articles are found in music videos outside of the R&B genre I usually analyze. The answer is sadly ‘yes’ and Paramore’s Brick by Boring Brick is a stunning example. This pop-punk band, described as “emo without being whiny or bratty” primarily appeals to kids and teenagers.

They have obtained worldwide success and numerous awards for their singles crushcrushcrush and Decode. The band has been featured in numerous movies (Twilight) and video games. The newest album of the band, named Brand New Eyes, introduces to the fans symbolism they are probably not familiar with. Looking at the promotional material, readers of this site will probably recognize signs and symbols used by other pop stars as well.  To make it simple: Paramore seems to have been influenced by the Illuminati. Brick by Boring Brick steers away from the usual high school themes of the band to tackle a subject that is totally oblivious to most teenagers: mind control and, more precisely, Monarch Programming.

That Darned One Eye Symbol

As seen with  Lady Gaga, Rihanna and other artists using mind control symbolism in their videos,  Paramore has adopted the “One-Eye” symbol in their promotional pictures:





Please don’t tell me it is a coincidence.

Monarch Programming

As discussed in previous articles, Monarch Programming is a mind-control technique used mostly on children to make them dissociate from reality.

“One of the primary reasons that the Monarch mind-control programming was named Monarch programming was because of the Monarch butterfly. The Monarch butterfly learns where it was born (its roots) and it passes this knowledge via genetics on to its offspring (from generation to generation). This was one of the key animals that tipped scientists off, that knowledge can be passed genetically.


The primary important factor for the trauma-based mind-control is the ability to disassociate. It was discovered that this ability is passed genetically from generation to generation. American Indian tribes (who had traumatic ritual dances and who would wait motionless for hours when hunting), children of Fakirs in India (who would sleep on a bed of nails or walk on hot coals), children of Yogis (those skilled in Yoga, who would have total control over their body while in a trance), Tibetan Buddhists, children of Vodoun, Bizango and other groups have a good ability to disassociate.

The children of multigenerational abuse are also good at dissociation. The Illuminati families and European occultists went to India and Tibet to study occultism and eastern philosophy. These Europeans learned yoga, tantric yoga, meditations, and trances and other methods to disassociate. These skills are passed on to their children via genetics. A test is run when the children are about 18 months old to determine if they can dissociate enough to be selected for programming or not.”

-The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave

Mind Control Victim, 1961

During sexual abuse, electroshock therapy and all kinds of sadistic tortures, mind control slaves are encouraged to dissociate from reality and to go to “a happy place”. The use of fairy tale imagery is used to reinforce programming and to create an alternate reality. The victim’s brain, in self-preservation mode, creates a new persona (an “alter”) as a defense mechanism to the abuse. The blurring of the lines between reality and fantasy makes the slave totally oblivious of his/her true state.

Paramore’s latest album is called “Brand New Eyes”, which has obvious mind control/Illuminati connotations. The cover features a pinned butterfly with its wings separated from its body … symbolic indeed.


Brick by Boring Brick

Paramore’s song is, at face value, about a girl escaping her problems and acting childish only to realize that it makes things worse. Behind this first degree meaning, lies a second layer of interpretation: the song describes, in chilling detail, the reality of a mind-control slave. The video manages to assemble all of the symbolism usually associated with Monarch Programming in about three minutes, leaving no doubt concerning this secondary meaning of the song.


Right from the start of the video, the subject matter of the song is made very clear. The setting is totally unreal and synthetically created.  A little girl, apparently a child version of the singer Hayley, runs towards a strange world, bearing monarch butterfly wings on her back, symbolizing that she is a Monarch slave. She almost reluctantly enters a symbolic gateway, representing the start of her dissociative state. The door violently shuts down behind her, which hints the viewers to the fact that this wonderland is forcibly induced on the child. The lyrics of the first verse describe the reality of the slave.

Well she lives in the fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of a world that she’s left behind

It’s all about the exposure the lens I told her

The angles are all wrong now
She’s ripping wings off of butterflies

The girl lives in a “fairy tale”, which is her dissociative mind state. It is “too far for us to find” due to the fact that this world can only be found in the confines of her consciousness. The slave has been removed from her family and the real world to live in a confined environment. She has “forgotten the taste and smell” of the the “real world” she has left behind. She lives in a prison for kids, a human rat laboratory and she is constantly manipulated by her handlers. All of her senses are subject to constant pressure and pain and her perception of reality is completely distorted: “The angles are all wrong now“. She is a Monarch slave and is thus “ripping wings off of butterflies“.

Keep your feet on the ground
When your head’s in the clouds

The dissociative state experienced by Monarch slaves is often described as a sensation of weightlessness. While her feet are on the ground, her consciousness is in an alternate reality or “in the clouds“.


The girl in the video walks around this strange world filled with fairy tale characters which are reminiscent of those found in Alice in Wonderland or the Wizard of Oz, the stories most commonly associated with mind control. The blurriness of the scenes and the presence of mushrooms in the background refer to the use of hallucinogenic drugs during Monarch Programming.


The girl enters a castle, representing her inner consciousness. Mirrors, reflections and the girl’s multiplication symbolize the girl’s fragmented/compartmentalized mind state.


The girl stands still while an independent, alternate personality, looking back at her through the mirror brushes her hair. Mirrors and castles are triggers that are often used in Monarch Programming.

“The premise of trauma-based mind control (a version of which was known as the MK Ultra program) is to compartmentalize the brain, and then use techniques to access the different sections of the brain while the subject is hypnotized. Entire systems can be embedded into a person’s mind, each with its own theme, access codes and trigger words. Some of the most common and popular symbolisms and themes in use are Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and The Wizard of Oz, mirrors, porcelain/harlequin masks, the phoenix/phoenix rising, rainbows, butterflies, owls, keys, carousels, puppets/marionettes and dolls,willow trees, tornadoes, spirals/helixes, castles, rings, hallways and doors, elevators and stairs.”

The second verse of the song describes a disturbing reality of Monarch slaves.

So one day he found her crying
Coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her
And the rest you can figure out
But it was a trick
And the clock struck 12

This is the picture painted by this verse: the slave’s handler enters her “cell”, where she is coiled up and deeply traumatized. The floor is dirty. It has been documented that victims of mind control are forced to live rooms littered with feces (I can’t make this stuff up). Her “prince”, who is in fact her handler, comes in to “save her from her pain”. Handlers are often portrayed as the slave’s savior, who will guide them through traumatic events. The line “And the rest you can figure out” alludes to the worst: the “prince” came to rape her. It was a trick, he was not a prince,  only a sadistic handler furthering the girl’s trauma with sexual abuse. During those repeated assaults, the slaves are forced to dissociate from reality. The lyrics of the song’s bridge aptly define this concept.

Well you built up a world of magic
Because your real life is tragic
Yeah you built up a world of magic

She has built, brick by brick, a wall in her consciousness that dissociates her from reality. She escapes into a world of magic due to the extreme trauma she has to live through on a daily basis.

The Awakening


Probably because the girl’s curiosity concerning her own mind has lead her too far, the world of wonders quickly becomes nightmarish. Creepy puppets make their way out of the mirrors. The characters of her fairy tale world suddenly become terrifying. An evil-looking character, dressed as a thief holding an ax, approaches her. Is she being reprimanded by her handlers for “not following the script” of her programming? The girl is understandably freaked out and runs away. The lyrics explain this difference between reality and fiction.

If it’s not real
You can’t hold it in your hand
You can’t feel it with your heart
And I won’t believe it

But if it’s true
You can see it with your eyes
Or even in the dark
And that’s where I want to be, yeah


The girl runs out of the castle and falls into the grave dug by … Paramore? That is not really cool of them. Hayley gets up, throws the girl’s doll into the grave and they start burying her. At face value, this can interpreted as the burial of the “young irresponsible girl” living in a fairy tale. On a second level, this can be seen as the burial of the innocence of a child after experiencing traumatic events.

If you have keen eyes, you can notice a white rabbit inside the hole. Is it the white rabbit of Alice in Wonderland? As Morpheus says in the Matrix:

“You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. “

Whatever the meaning one attributes to the burial, the message of the video is not to sympathetic to the girl’s quest of self-knowledge and emancipation. Seems like they’re saying “This is what you get for trying to know your real self”.


In Conclusion

After viewing the video a couple of times, I asked myself if the song was actually a denunciation of mind-control practices … maybe it was trying to inform and warn people on the subject. So I visited some Paramore-related sites and forums to see if the song had sparked discussions concerning its deeper meaning. I quickly came back to the reality of things: Young people listen to this music and they have absolutely NO IDEA what’s going on. About 97% of educated adults are totally unaware of the existence of mind control (let alone its symbolism), so to expect high schoolers know about this is totally absurd. Here are some actual comments from fans about this song: “I luv the Badabada part!“, “Hayley looks great in blonde!“or “I don’t like the burying part!“.

So with that in mind I keep asking myself: Why do we use symbolism and triggers associated with mind control in videos aimed at the young people? They are totally oblivious to the reality of Monarch programming, so why do we expose them to it? After realizing that the group has adopted some of the Illuminati symbolism discussed in previous articles, the answer became very clear: They are part of the System, with a capital “S”. This System hypnotically conditions people to accept mind control as part of their daily lives and the trend is becoming increasingly apparent. I can already hear the naysayers saying “nay” to everything and finding ways to rationalize everything that has been discussed here. Maybe they should ponder on those words:

“Even as he dances to the tune of the elite managers of human behavior, the modern man scoffs with a great derision at the idea of the existence and operation of a technology of mass mind control emanating from media and government. Modern man is much too smart to believe anything as superstitious as that!

Modern man is the ideal hypnotic subject: puffed up on the idea that he is the crown of creation, he vehemently denies the power of the hypnotist’s control over him as his head bobs up and down on a string.”

  1. Surprised at Paramore, but people will do what they do for money, i think the band have been signed to some new deals from their label and they are straight awa in the spotlight more than on their previous albums. They are probably puppets like most acts in the industry, and have no idea the symbolism in their video or the way their lyrics can be perceived. Just because they claim to be one religion doesn't mean they haven't sold out, and by the looks of things they have. Big up Immortal Technique btw, love that guy, genius lyrically. Peace to all

  2. I saw a comment saying that this is a Christian band, so therefore this analysis is incorrect. Something we must know is that many times in history, people put on the facade of Christianity. It makes people feel more comfortable with them due to the values and principles a Christian lives by. But as I said it is a facade. Many Christians you may know in your personal lives may put of the mask of Christianity and lives as wickedly as those in the world. Christians are to always see the fruit of one who claims to be Christian. We are never to take their word. There many wolves in sheeps clothing and this is the critical time to check for the wolves. Elvis Presley, Beyonce and many others are professed Christians but as you can see by their fruit we see that it is not true.

  3. omg I am so disappointed!! I did like the video but I indeed found it weird the few times i watch it was quite different from their usual videos I thought that it simply was saying hey although reality is a bitch you cant allow yourself to be lost in fantasy. It’s like what music is sacred I love this band Paramoreand now i dont know wtf to listen to it’s ever since i’ve visited this website I find myself changing the station when i hear jay-z, rihana, kanye west, beyonce, and lady gaga it’s like nothing sacred so wtf am I suppose to listen to now. I’m an adult and the mind control surely doesnt apply to me but I find myself questioning what music is sacred and has no evil intentions at hand. What music is safe to listen anymore idk maybe I dont see the bigger picture so u tell me because everyday when I see a music video I analyze every detail because of fear of the message or the true intentions!

  4. While I do not like Paramore (since I am not a 14 year old girl who shops at Hot Topic), there seems to be some information you missed while doing your research. They’re a very Christian band who are outspoken in their beliefs. If anything, I see it as being anti-mind control and moreso of a warning of the dangers of “following the crowd”, so to speak. Once again, not a Paramore fan or religious at all, just from what I know about them, I highly doubt they’d quickly put out such intentional symbolic videos, etc with literal meanings. As for their press pictures, I’m assuming they just think it looks “cool”, similar to doing the “rock” hand gesture, which some think represents the devil when it obviously does not.

  5. Vigilant – Paramore’s album is all about the band having problems and pretending they hadn’t a problem with their relationships – and being young they have been thrown into the spotlight. This song talks about when they are putting the denial behind them – particulary hayley as she sings how she was acting like a little girl and not facing up to her problems.

    She lives in a fairy tale
    Somewhere too far for us to find
    Forgotten the taste and smell
    Of the world that she’s left behind

    So she built up a fake ‘world’ with material things so she didnt have to face the truth with the rest of the band.
    Also – the ‘symbols’ – they are in the rock and roll industry and these are young adults.
    you do a really good job reaearching this but i have to tell you – i think you got this band all wrong.

  6. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, not Paramore! I always knew, from the minute I saw the Brand New Eyes album cover. (and even the album’s name itself.) Damn, is there any hope for us at all? Vigilant, these articles are brilliant, but what do we have to look forward to? I’m literally asking, is there any hope? They’re slowly swallowing EVERYTHING.

  7. OMG ! well aniiwaii im not a fan of paramore,, but hum its soo scaryy cuz all the artists of todayz are all illuminatized =O ! back then , it wasnt like this … And Vigilant did you know that they killed MJ.

    I do. Just stop looking to commercial music . Just start looking for unknowned band or singer and you’ll get good music(not always). Music isn’t just those you hear on TV or RADIO. Theres tons of great band/singer. I know alot but you probably don’t speak french :(. I can still give you some: Mes Aïeux, Cowboy fringants, IAM, Yan perreault, Grand corp malade etc. etc. Some of these got english lyrics, you can go check it out on youtube. And check out for independ movies :)

  9. Thanks shiv! But don’t get me wrong, I don’t just listen to commercial music. Immortal Technique is surprisingly become well known.

  10. …””Modern man is the ideal hypnotic subject: puffed up on the idea that he is the crown of creation, he vehemently denies the power of the hypnotist’s control over him as his head bobs up and down on a string”….

    SOOOOOOO true man… a defect of the modern day human psyche if you ask me – I dont believe for one second that creation ends with human beings – it is this type of thinking that we occupy the top of the food chain and were charged with the task of running/controlling nature/playing God is the very thinking that is destroying our world.

    Anyways back to the article, I don’t know who this band is but honestly guys honestly, anyone who cannot even at LEAST consider what the author is contending, is truely lost. I mean, lol is it THAT HARD to believe?

    Perhaps if the “right people” talked about these kind of things (i.e. Oprah, Larry King, Barbara Walters, Washington Post) then only maybe people would consider. Sad.

  11. Yes he is popular but not alot, he ain’t millionair and he dosen’t want to. He refuse to convert like all recent rappers or R&B artist who talk about fake and illusionist things.

    illusionist not sure about that word but I’m sure you understand

  12. AppreciatesKnowledge on

    Dear Vigilant:

    The following quote you made in your summation is priceless:
    “Even as he dances to the tune of the elite managers of human behavior, the modern man scoffs with a great derision at the idea of the existence and operation of a technology of mass mind control emanating from media and government. Modern man is much too smart to believe anything as superstitious as that!

    Modern man is the ideal hypnotic subject: puffed up on the idea that he is the crown of creation, he vehemently denies the power of the hypnotist’s control over him as his head bobs up and down on a string.”
    -Michael A. Hoffman II, Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare

    Many thanks Vigilant!

  13. Vigilant, I’m pleased that you’ve covered Paramore on your site. PsuedoOccultMedia covered it also, albeit a lot more thorough. This is not a criticism, I’m just noticing that (the handful of related sites) you guys are all covering the same issues. It’s all good…bigger catchment/audience for the knowledge I guess!
    I’ve been posing the question of WHY and WHAT FOR quite a lot recently. I’m understanding that it’s up to me to work this out!! SO I’m believing that it is to unconsciously make people familiar with symbols/associations, for some hidden agenda, and the powers-that-be have secret motivations that we can’t begin to understand right now, in this present state of our (pop)culture sensibilites.
    I recently saw an interview with Jay-Z…he seemed – dare I say it – quite illiterate and I noticed people commenting on his background as a drug-dealer on the streets of Brooklyn – which he freely admitted….So I am drawing more conclusions after watching a myriad of interviews with the artists you’ve covered here on your site.
    They seem to come from very impoverished backgrounds or have major elitist links running through their families, which they like to keep out of their bios. and interviews. There are no middle-class educated artists that are on the huge (and growing) illuminate rap-sheet (anyone – please correct me if I’m wrong)
    This cannot be a coincidence, right?
    My conclusion is that everything is manufactured – or rather – information fed to us is manipulated – so that we receive the ‘message’ in a certain way, leaving us with no reason or inclination to question what is being presented to us, and by whom. Am I making any sense?
    Anyway, I am now intrigued by the backgrounds and early-days of all of these artists…perhaps we should focus on this information – as it yields vital clues.
    I may have to start my own blog on this issue……??
    Keep up the good work!

  14. This is an eye-witness account.
    Some years ago in Jamaica, a hypnotist asked a twenty something (year old), “Do you think you can be hypnotized?” The person responded, “No man, not me. Me no believe in them some’ thin.” The hypnotist then quickly proceeded to put the twenty something (year old) in a trance and asked them while in trance to stand on one leg and hop until he came back.” As a group of people looked on, the NAYSAYER proceeded to hop on one leg until the hypnotist returned about one hour later. Upon his return, the hypnotist quickly commanded the person out of the trance (yes, still hopping) and asked him to stop hopping. The hypnotist then said to the same person, “Man, you really hard to hypnotize!” The person responded, “told you so. I’m not one of those people who fall for that kind of (bleep)!” Bleep is my word.

  15. love it! but please post an article to Beyonce’s “Video Phone” remix Featuring Lady Gaga….i believe there are many hidden symbolisms in that vid..and to #5. LIGHTS’ [LIGHTS Poxleitner, Owl City, and all Disney Stars have amazing music that has nothing to do with occult, etc…

  16. Superb job! The song and video sadly is an echo of monarch mind control. The castle in the video reminds me of the mothers of darkness castle.

  17. I’m not necessarily a fan of Paramore, And I agree with everything on your site. I have watched all the get educated videos but after watching this video acouple times I started to think,maybe it might be a possiblity that this group is on are side and is secretly trying to tell us something? Anyone have any opions on that?

  18. I can’t help but notice people outlining their left eye all the time or covering their right to show the left. Why would someone do this? Especially on the cover all the guys are covering both their eyes but the girl only covers one to have her ‘new’ left eye open and the uncovered right eye is deliberately closed. Isn’t that a shout out to the illuminati? Don’t they have to show the secret society that they’re representing them? I thought they had to shout them out symbolically in view of the world but the world would have no clue as to what they’re doing.

  19. Look at what they do – not just interviews or lyrics. The labels get certain directors And ONLY use them for these visual (video) creations to fulfill their portion of the creative team. Who are these creatives on these teams – a backgrounder on them please.

    Get out your KIng James Bible and read it. We better get right with the true maker – Jesus Christ. Fear Not! (what Jesus says in most every speech and parable to us all – for FEAR is of the Angel of light – Lucifer).

  20. Shoot! I question the Disney music also. Disney owns a lot of other major companies like ABC for an example. Disney has to be a part of the occult.
    VC do you have any anaylsis on anything Disney?
    Also, please do an analysis on Video Phone by Beyonce. She teamed up w/ Lady Gaga in this video and it concerns me major.

  21. Gee. That picture where all 5 member cover their eye(s) is pretty deep. Thanks a bunch for posting this, looks like it’s time to delete stuff off the iPod again.

  22. I’m pretty sure that in the video the young girl represents the existence of the singer Hayley while she was going through certain events in her life (whether they be mind control, denial of reality and the building up of an artificial world due to trauma, etc) and that the burial scene in the end is Hayley putting that part of herself into the past. She is burying her old self, and everything associated with that old self (which is why she throws the doll along with the little girl). The true Hayley is hanging around in that one area the whole time waiting for her current dellusional self to be re-awakened to reality so that her actual conscious self can be free once again.

  23. Thank you for breaking down this video and explaining mind control. Is this why Michael Jackson was so into peter pan and Mariah Carey butterflies? Prior to M.J.’s demise, he said Tommy Mattola was evil,and he started to talk to much. They ruled his death a homicide,so was he murdered to keep him from talking?And Britney Spears breakdown, was she trying to break her mind control? Britney use to be a mousecateer, so were Justin Timberlake, Christina Agulara & lindsey Lohan use to make disney movies, also Miley Cyrus, she wants to be the next Britney Spears. And disney has hidden images and words in a couple of there cartoons, is Disney evil?

  24. The guy on the cover (2nd from your right) has a sideways cross on/imprinted into his skin. It’s white, so it barely shows, but it’s there.

    I can’t find anything about the sideways cross really, except Bush displayed it as some kind of neo-con artwork on the NWO.

    Also, the one where she’s covering her eye in the circle w/ the heart candy or whatever, and her 3 fingers are up in an ‘okay sign.’ That’s the sign of 666/Satan. The 3 fingers represent the top of the ‘6’s.

    Also, this girl is totally ugly. Of course she’s worshipping Satan to make it in the music business.

    Don’t be paranoid, you can’t change fate. You can work towards freedom, and accept death if it comes. God tells us not to live in fear! Recognize the signs of evil, and stay away from it.

    Oh, and the ‘peace sign’ is occult. Although, basically, every number and everything you do with your hands is occult. So, it’s nearly impossible not do make an occult symbol.

  25. Your analysis really helped me understand why I stopped watching television for years. There were moments in my life where I would watch countless hours of television programs broadcast by VH1, MTV and E and found myself developing insecure thoughts, “Am I pretty enough,”should I get a tan”, “are my friends cool enough”, are my clothes nice enough.” I had cast doubts on my self worth. Then I stopped watching television, but for a different reason, and I found myself to not have been as insecure. Then, after some time, I started to watch the same programs, and I found myself developing insecure thoughts again. I never thought about the possibility of mind control, geesh I was only in my teens. However, I did conclude that MTV, VH1, E and so many other stations are not the best form of entertainment for my psyche and removed cable from my home. [I had similar revelations with other forms of media/entertainment, but I will spare you the details].

    I first approached your analysis with an extreme attitude of skepticism, but at the end you backed up your claim, and I now cannot ignore the strong possibility of mind control. Especially when I relate your claim to my personal experience with MTV, and other forms of entertainment.

  26. Another terrific expose’.

    Yes, Vigilant, you are right. Were Paramore attempting to ‘speak out’ against this type of evil, they would have done just that… not pose for hundreds of pictures with their right eyes’ covered, etc. They are part of ‘the System’.

    I think there can be no doubt that this is now fact: The illuminati puppet masters are conditioning the 20 years of age and under crowd for the deeper form of mind control that is right around the corner. Very soon will come the day when they tell the populace that it is time to receive their implants – microchips in the frontal lobe – that we will be told we need for things like security and to make life easier, and to be ‘cool’, etc.
    Once the populace is sufficiently chipped, then the switch is flipped and in an instant people no longer have their own thoughts. They are under ‘Complete’ Control.

    All that is being done today with music and advertising and ‘news’ and popular culture is to affect conditioning that will allow people to voluntarily accept their own subjugation and enslavement.

  27. Yeah, this is definitely an anti-mind control song&video. Because if you notice at the end, the little girl rips off her butterfly wings (presenting mind control) and runs away from the castle.

  28. Great job =) I just wanted to respond to something I keep seeing in the comments.

    Over and over I read “Oh no, not ____! (In this case Paramore) Well, I guess they’ll do anything for the money/fame.” I wouldn’t be so quick to assume that any of these people are intentionally doing anything wrong. The fact that a band or an artist (in this case Hayley) uses such symbolism her work does not necessarily mean she is aware of the meanings. That is not to say that she isn’t part of “the System”, but that she may not be fully aware of it. Art of any sort tends to draw inspiration from hidden areas of our minds, and thus memories. My personal belief is that a lot of these artists are not at all “bad” and did not sell their souls, but are victims of the very System they are now helping propogate.

    Left untreated, child abuse of any sort has a strong tendency to be reenacted by the abused child in adulthood, either as the abuser or the victim, often without a fully conscious understanding of what they are doing or why. Now, take that concept and apply it to a systematic form of abuse and control and its pretty reasonable to imagine that a victim of this ‘System’ may be taught to want fame and acceptance desperately. Then, the very same System comes along and “discovers” this person and gives them that fame they so desire, all the while continuing to control and manipulate them.

    Mainstream artists are commonly surrounded by a virtual committee of people that make most of their artistic (and often lifestyle) decisions for them. “Cover your eye with the peace sign. Yeah, that looks great! Ok, now hold your hand over your eye. Perfect! *Snap snap of the camera*” They don’t necessarily know they are being used, and their minds may already be conditioned to be receptive to these people’s ideas. Even the people manipulating the artists probably don’t mean any harm. They are likely pawns of the System as well, and have no idea where they get these ideas from other than just their own creative minds. Assuming the Illuminati is real and operating in the ways described in places such as this website, it’s reasonable to assume they have an entire “hierarchy” of unwitting controllers who are in fact being controlled themselves.

  29. Okay this is a good article,but I have a question for you vigilant. WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO ABOUT IT! I mean you keep warning us and warning us about symbolism what are we supposed to do. You should put up a post about how we can stop it or something!

  30. One of the nice things about getting old is I don’t have to listen to stuff like that cacophonous mind numbing sound by that band whoever they are. What I did see is the girl is another Avril Levine type. Another “rebel” gone mainstream vapid pretty to sell stuff to other “rebel” types.

    You are pretty bang on with your breakdown of the whole thing. I watched it with a young Brice Taylor or Kathy O’brien in my thoughts, or a young Britney, actually. It was all there. To be honest you have been doing these great breakdowns for awhile and I am surprised you have not figured out why they expose kids to it. I don’t know, I remember when I was listening to Beds Are Burning and loving the song and the message all at once. I asked my 10 year old if she liked it and why. She said, You can dance to it.

    That was it. You could dance to it.

    I have watched kids growing up from a parental angle for 30 years now and I see that these things are now fed to them in their momma’s breastmilk almost. It is very deep conditioning. It has increased amazingly since my 28 year old was born. Think of the effect these icons like Madonna and Britney have had on them.

    When my other girl was addicted to Sex and the City, I watched it with her for awhile. THEN I saw what it was doing to the subconscious of our young women. It was pushing men further out of their lives, making them no more than accessories for the outfit of the day. Who needs a man if you have your girlfriends? Who needs KIDS, so long as you have your girlfriends. And so a whole generation of young mid twenties have a whole new look at relationships and … shoes…

    Our kids are the ones they want and they don’t want to lose any more than need be, so the conditioning starts young. I mean, what other reason is there for toddler high heels or thongs for 3 year olds than to get them sexualized young? This is all part of that whole system.

    All preparation work … how else were they able to sell and instill the official version of 911 into so many millions if not a lot of careful preparation over the previous years?

  31. The time to so something is not now. All you can do is arm yourself with this knowledge, and try to illuminate or pass this knowledge to some one else. That is all we can do at this time, be prepared.

  32. Well, I’m convinced. I was looking for loopholes in what you wrote about Paramore (whom I’ve never heard of before), but I am beginning to think you are right, Vigilant.

    You mentioned a quote from Hoffman. I’ve read his “King Kill 33” and his book about psychological warfare. Particularly the book freaked me out. It’s hard to believe “things” go on, and yet…

    I listen to downloads of Alan Watt — a master in explaining the Matrix. All his talks are enlightening, but I suddenly “saw the picture” in his December 1st talk where he talked about the secrecy of the world of Academia that lives by government grants, and “encouraged” to go along with the government agenda. I work at a university myself in a clerical capacity. I always thought it was the Ivy Tower where I could be safe and above the mess and mire of the “real world” — only to observe their government connections, and the sucking up. These things are just the tip of the ice berg and I don’t know the half of it, I’m sure.

    Watt says all of this in the Matrix has been planned by the Elites for a very, VERY long time. And considering the instability of the times today, like bailing out the banksters and corporations, and letting the average person suffer for it by buying into their lies, like owning a home, health care for some, and so on — well, I really now must take into consideration all these strange hip hop videos and the messages and symbols they are presenting.

    God knows you are right, Vigilant — the average person (particularly the young) really has no clue. Let them keep breeding more slaves for the System in that case. They will begin to wake up in say, 25 or 30 years, then another 10 to convince themselves they’ve really been had after all. C’est la vie, eh?

    Hoffman is right: modern man fancies himself the crown of creation, even while he dances to the Elite managers of his behavior every step of the way. And as Watt says, ‘we really think we are free’ when we don’t know the half of what’s going on.

    Well, I guess it would be an impossible task to teach the young they live in an Elite Matrix and their lives will be one of control. And what would this “crown of creation” create, if left to be as “good” as the average person claims to be? Want to know?


  33. Why do you think Paramore’s latest album is called ‘Brand New Eyes’. Maybe because one may see things in a Brand New Way/Light with them. Their cover-art is also sheer genius if you understand what it signifies. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Besides, it isn’t raining butterfly wings, but rose petals. Also, bearing monarch butterfly wings on her back does not symbolizes that she is a Monarch slave. There is even substantial Biblical reference to much of the symbolism in this video…

    Keep your feet on the ground
    When your head’s in the clouds

    Excellent advise…

  34. WHOA! This is my favorite band and I had never seen it like this! I am completely SPEECHLESS! This is wow! I don’t know! You mean to say I am mind controlled? Nothing against you, but I love certain parts of this song ESPECIALLY the girl falling into the whole and getting buried. I thought it was just the girl leaving her fake reality into whole and burying it and moving on. Hayley maybe being the future girl and walking away from it. well my thoughts might be wrong because in MTV interviews Hayley has nothing to with the girl as they say, and that Hayley was just a narrator. Man I wonder if Twitter has something to do with this also? Paramore are always updating their Tweets…

  35. Wonderful article and love the ending quote! It sums it up!!!! This was by far the best one you’ve done in my opinion, even though I love all them!

  36. It is time for those who keeping wanting to know the WHY of things, and the devices of the Elites and the System uses against those who expose their hidden agenda of perpetual warfare and perpetual control (and here the poster KPRYAN said what the Elites are creating succinctly enough:

    “Very soon will come the day when they tell the populace that it is time to receive their implants – microchips in the frontal lobe – that we will be told we need for things like security and to make life easier, and to be ‘cool’, etc.
    Once the populace is sufficiently chipped, then the switch is flipped and in an instant people no longer have their own thoughts. They are under ‘Complete’ Control.” — Kpryan

    that it is now time to begin to go deeper into the rabbit hole and LEARN WHY. You can do no better than listening to the MASTER — Alan Watt who can explain it to a “T”

    It gets tiring reading posts asking WHY and so on. You’ve got to research deeper.

  37. Lyrics:

    Her prince finally came to save her
    And the rest you can figure out
    But it was a trick
    And the clock struck 12

    When another ball was held the next evening, Cinderella again attended with her Godmother’s help. The Prince became even more entranced. However, this evening she lost track of time and left only at the final stroke of midnight, losing one of her glass slippers on the steps of the palace in her haste. The Prince chased her, but outside the palace, the guards had seen only a simple country wench leave. The Prince pocketed the slipper and vowed to find and marry the girl to whom it belonged. Meanwhile, Cinderella kept the other slipper, which had not disappeared when the spell had broken.

  38. This video is in essence about the coming of age, a young person’s transition from childhood to adulthood, going from a fantastical to a more realistic state of mind. That’s the reason why the young girl and doll are buried by the more mature woman in the end. Pay attention to the form of the door the young girls enters through…

  39. One last remark. The ‘bury the castle’ line is about burying the castle in the sky, a metaphor for a dream or goal, most usually an unobtainable one. Also notice the thief coming out of the mirror when she sings ‘Or even in the dark’. This is of course a reference to: ‘For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.’. Rihanna also mentions this thief in the night in her Disturbia video.

  40. I agree in some parts, but not in others. I don’t really agree with the bit about mind control, I always thought that it was about someone, not necessarily a little girl, creating her own little world, to distract herself from reality, and the problems she faces in real life. Then she realises that problems will follow you, no matter how hard you try to get away from them, and that she needs to go back to the real world and deal with them in order to be happy again. “Bury the castle” is her leaving behind the world that she used to go to to get away from her problems, that is now just reminding her of her problems.

  41. Juanita December 5th, 2009 4:01 pm :

    Shoot! I question the Disney music also. Disney owns a lot of other major companies like ABC for an example. Disney has to be a part of the occult.
    VC do you have any anaylsis on anything Disney?

    Disney is a company that has strong connections with satanism. If you look up “subliminal messages in Disney movies “, you will find plenty of movies with occult meanings and subliminal messages. One of the first movies portraying occultism was Fantasia which can clearly be seen in the part of Mickey Mouse in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. When Mickey Mouse falls asleep, Disney illustrates astral projection in a kid friendly sort of way. Also, I believe the movie may have something to do with the MK Ultra project as it became popular with young adults during the 60’s and 70’s when they enjoyed watching it while doing drugs.

  42. Hey vigilant,
    I am just so confused as to why people are so anxious for you to post another video expose and yet refute your claims when the solid evidence is right under their noses? I believe people are just not ready to face the obvious and are just disgruntled because they worship these artist and have a hard time letting them go. They just want to take these things at face value because the veil hasn’t been lifted from over their eyes. They claim “no,no,no” but what solid evidence do they have to back it up… maybe they should start their own sites. It’s becoming clear to me that they are just using their intellect and have not done much research into the subject matters. This is very real stuff and only when you look behind the curtain can you see what goes on behind the scenes. People all the time make claims to be Christian but look at ‘Judas Iscariot’ who betrayed Christ for just 30 pieces of silver and he was a ‘Disciple’, one of his own,so just think what these puppets will do for hundreds of thousands or possibly even millions? We don’t have time to argue on whether or not his claims are true when the information is out there and readily available to anyone looking for ‘truth’. It takes courage to do what you do and a coward to scoff at someone who is truly vigilant and looking out for their best interest!

  43. I don’t mean this to be condescending to anyone, but I’d recommend looking beyond the Christianity vs Satanism paradigm. Not all good people in the world are Christians and not all bad people in the world are Satanists. That attitude is part of being in the “matrix” so to speak. Look beyond the perspective of your own upbringing. (I am not directing this at you VC, I hope you know that. It’s obvious you are looking beyond that schema.

  44. Vigilant,
    I am so glad you finally responded to Keleigh because she is so annoying and my last post was honestly geared toward her without being controversial. I was in the middle of sending my post and when I looked back up I noticed your post. Bravo for putting her in her place and shutting her down because she is always one of the first to respond with her negativity when if she has so many points and views, why not start her own site. She always takes up so much space all the time and you have to scroll for what seems like hours to add something. I think she ‘disagrees’ to ‘agree’ if you know what I mean? This is not to discredit her ,but use your own space to write as many comments as you like if you don’t agree that’s all and leave the space for the ones that have an appreciation for this ‘site’.

  45. This is really interesting…

    On a different note, it seems as if Taylor Swift and the Paramore girl are best of friends if u go by their twitter pages… they go out and hang out together.

  46. Vigilant, to be fair, Keleigh did make one good point bringing up the point of asking who are the makers of these videos because the imagery is similar — the symbolic settings, the designs of the costumes, the choreography of the dance movements, the use of symbolic gestures, etc. I wondered about this myself. But videos don’t show or list the behind-the-scenes credits of who works on these videos, let alone who are the owners, or the producers, of these videos. For researchers in the field, those who research into conspiracy theories and those who hone in on the use of esoteric symbols, finding out who are the owners of these companies would be a good start, who is producing them exactly.

    But Keleigh needs to understand that you are only one person and cannot research into the biographies of these so-called “artists”, let alone research who puts out these videos, and why they seem to like to use esoteric symbols so much. (I have to admit, this does not seem to be a coincidence. )

    I’ve liked Keleigh’s posts because she (or he) seeks to maintain a sense of objectivity and not buying into ideas so easily, and possibly going off on the deep end (as many suggestible people can do). However, for Keleigh’s part, reading analyses of hip hop videos is only going to take her just so far.

    She does not seem to believe there is any mind control going on, anyway, on any level, even specifically aimed at the young. Someone here posted they were not mind controlled because they were adults — this was quite amusing to read. But to understand how it is possible to be mind controlled all one’s life, from every angle, from birth to death, some people need to keep an open mind enough and take that Red Pill and go deeper, if they are that interested at all. They need to begin to do their own research into the Matrix.

  47. im sorry but this is complete bullshit. this song represents her being all childish and so does the video

  48. Vigilant. Please check out K-Pop. A lot of people listen to this stuff. And you know how the American music industries can influence… Search Boa’s Bump Bump. what’s up with the rings. and the a-ok signs are all over in other vids. they’re just probably emulating without knowing wth they’re doing but still. just check out artists. 2ne1. Big Bang. DBSK. there’s so much more…

  49. Quite the contrary. I found this site by chance, it was mentioned on another blog that I frequent. From there, I noticed you “profiling” a lot of the artists that I actually like and listen to regularly. Since I am a fan, I will have an opinion when someone is making some outrageous, and often ridiculous claims. The fact that so many people have been bothered by my comments just shows how narrow-minded you all truly are, as you sit here going on and on about good vs evil. Well you know what? The NWO ain’t here yet and we still have free speech and I will continue to exercise that right just as the rest of you have. VC still hasn’t even answered half of the questions I, and quite a few others have put forth (not just here but on a couple of the other articles, Gaga’s in particular).

    If I annoy you and you see my name, then it’s real simple – scroll on past my comments! My words don’t take up any more space than anyone else’s and what I have to say does not stop you from stating your thoughts just the same. How can you people expect that everyone commenting will AGREE with the views expressed in these articles? I am also not the only one who has a different view & continues to return to the site. Yet I am the target of such nastiness and baiting. Some of the most disgusting and offensive language is coming from the so-called Christians and I don’t see them being “put in their place.” A lot of hatred for nothing. I have not shown hatred towards anybody here.

    @Meke – I do not “worship” any of these artists so you are wrong. I also haven’t put in any requests to VC except for asking that he/she focus more on who is the real force behind these artists videos/lyrics or whatever else because they cannot ALL be doing this on their own. This ties into how many times I have agreed that I see some of the patterns. As far as I’m concerned you guys don’t really want to be challenged and as long as you feel that way you’ll be like hamsters in a wheel – endlessly running and never going anywhere. (That is why more and more people who come here are confused and asking “what now? what are we supposed to DO then?”)

    The articles are not, like you say “solid evidence” of anything more than common patterns or themes. I keep bringing it up and yet no one has anything else to say except if you don’t agree, then you’re brainwashed, blind, going to hell, or some other such nonsense. A lot of intelligent thoughts have been presented by commenters, some even more ridiculing of VC than I’ve ever been but no one has an intelligent, in-depth comeback to any of it. VC’s recent reply to me is another good example. I’m not asking complicated questions but everybody’s so very “annoyed.”

    I’d love to see what would happen if this site rose in popularity to such a degree, that you ended up being questioned on national tv or radio about the things you write. Because believe me, if that is in the cards for this site, the questions are only going to get harder, the people asking them are not going to be nearly as amicable as I’ve been thus far, & the willy-nilly responses will definitely not fly. But to be honest, I don’t even think you take the subject-matter that you present very seriously so perhaps the rest of us shouldn’t either. Maybe this really is like someone else said, “info-tainment.” I’ll be sure to remember that.

  50. @Lily – I do not disbelieve that mind control exists, or that adults can be mind controlled. On one of the other articles quite a while ago, I did state that images are more effectual on children since they are still developing. I even remember asking VC if there would ever be any analysis of commercials and children’s television programming for this very reason.

    My opinion as far as how these videos effect people who have already reached puberty is that mind control is a huge stretch. However, I do not deny that teens do emulate a lot of what they see celebrities doing. We were all in high school once, we all know this. I can only speak for me, but that emulation never went much farther beyond style of dress as far as I saw and experienced. I understand the alarm at what kids are exposed to, but if this kind of mind control does really exist, would they start with pubescent-aged kids? Somehow I don’t think so. We are a thousand times more malleable as babies/children. I actually think the greater influence on teens is from some of these grotesque video games that are out right now. But of course, that’s a whole different area so…..

  51. You should see the mind-control programming that goes on in major corporations. I can attest to that fact. I’ve worked for the very largest of accounting firms (5 of the largest at the time) and every 6 months like clockwork, PC thought police meetings and conditioning retreats took place. I never liked it. I used to tune it out and thought it was all crap, but many of my colleagues lapped it up. Is it any coincidence companies have “Human Resources” departments? It’s to keep the slaves in line and obedient.

    I got sick of it and went on my merry way. While poorer, I feel much better as a person and can pursue intellectually what I want, when I want. You cannot do that as a corporate mind-hive slave…they just do not give you the time to do so.

  52. Don’t quote me on this, but in the least, I hope this would help those who are searching for answers, or ways to prevent such things from really happening. The Bible says we’re at the ends of times, and when you actually read the following list of “declared goals” found in the Congressional Records, you’ll realized that most of them have ALREADY BEEN ACCOMPLISHED SINCE THE 60’s!!!!! It called the domino effect….. cause and effect.

    People like VC, who gets labeled, does a really great job with pointing out what most people don’t realize – is that mainstream media is a form of advertising! And why do you think every 15mins into a show, there is a damn commercial!?

    Unfortunately, you cannot view the actual document online, but they did give a source and that you can find it in your FEDERAL DEPOSITORY (not “Repository”). What’s the point of fighting a battle if you don’t even know who you’re true enemy is? And unfortunately, the enemy is/was our own selves for the past 40 years! Yes, our leaders have sinned, but we’ve sinned just as much for blindly following! As much as some may not like to hear it, but again this goes back to asking Jesus for Salvation!!! This is REAL!!!

    I hope that this “list” found in the CONGRESSIONAL RECORDS can help those who are faithfully-challenged and that we have become our own worse enemies. The Bible was NOT BS-ING!!!! And MOST importantly, I hope this list wasn’t made up….and I hope that I haven’t committed the act of spreading disinfo. And if I have, I’m very sorry…..

    “The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals” – Found within the Congressional Records 1963

    God bless and I hope we’re still not too late… and ALWAYS DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELVES!!! (Unfortunately, there have been disinformants)

    BTW VC, great job on the analysis. The fact that most people view it as “putting her past behind” positively means that the method which they used to control WORKS! I’ll be honest, because that’s what I initially thought as well, albeit reading your analysis first.

  53. Okay are you guys blind?? Paramore is not a bad band and there not trying to “Ming controll” us
    THe song simply explains child abuse..and how they want to basically GET RID OF IT! “Well go get your shovel and we’ll dig a deep whole to burry the casel” <-Get rid of child abuse..i dont know if you actualy paid atteniton and listened more youd see where im comming from.

  54. Paramore is NOT a Christian group. That is a RUSE only. THey have most definately sold their souls to the industry = Illuminati in the media.

    ANYONE that calls themselves a Christian, puts out DARK forboding and evil lyrics, mimics the EYE of HORUS like GAGA before them – are LIARS when they call themselves Christians. They may worship the LORD, but it’s not Jesus Christ.


    :Ye shall know them by their FRUIT.

  55. Please make one of Beyonce and Lady Gaga's videophone collaboration. I noticed some in there.

  56. It seems as if the monarch program was designed to induce dissasociation in children in order acess their mind. This article is great for pointing out that this is done. BUT it also connotates that dissassociation is always a bad thing. The article gives examples of yogis, monks, and others who worked at finding a way to dissoassociate from reality in order to escape pain. I think that this is a useful skill and not necessarily bad.
    Total control of your own mind is invaluable and could help one to survive horrible things. But i do commend this article anyhow for bringing to mind that others can try to control it so u must take full control yourself. the vigilant points out that in the video she finds creepy things such as puppets coming out of the mirrors and the lyrics say
    if it’s true
    You can see it with your eyes
    Or even in the dark
    And that’s where I want to be, yeah
    Things that are true are also found within the mind and cannot be seen with the eyes. More brainwashing, Eek!

  57. Keliegh, it seems Vigilant tries to maintain some kind of ideological neutrality while exposing the occult symbolism that surrounds us. Let Vigilant have his neutrality, he can point out the patterns and give his opinion of the patterns, and the comments provide the opportunity for us all to argue about who is doing what and why.

    What I see is people trying to attack Vigilant because they are scared to accept the ramifications of what he is pointing out.

    Most people are sheep, and there are two kinds of sheep, the vast majority are completely oblivious ignorant drones, and then there’s the educated and intelligent but willfully ignorant drones, who will deny deny deny till they are blue in the face any evidence of any conspiracy, because they don’t want to believe in any great manipulative evil forces in the world, they want to believe that everything is okay, humanity is progressing through technology toward a glorious future, just enduring bumps along the way toward a higher evolution. They will deny the conspiracy because to accept it would force a radical change in their worldview, and would force them to contemplate spiritual matters that they prefer to either ridicule or disregard, in the interest of holding on to their comfortable blissful ignorance.

    And for the people who keep asking Vigilant “What should we do?”, I ask you, why do you need Vigilant to tell you what to do? Why don’t you start YOUR OWN RESEARCH into these subjects, and decide for YOURSELF what you should do?

    My advice is to do a little research into the Bible. It has a complete explanation of the forces of evil, and includes many prophecies about the plans of evil in the future, and it tells you exactly what you should do about it.

  58. VC.
    The work you have done for the creation of this site is to be commended. You obviously have passion. The implications of exactly what you are implying and saying are great and if conclusive, horrific. Your subjective musings certainly show a deep of research. Regardless, you would do better to be as objective as possible, trying not to let the apparentness of the travesty weaken your argument. One example is, you cannot know that because the young girl “runs towards a strange world, bearing monarch butterfly wings on her back … of course, symbolizes the fact that she is a Monarch slave”. It certainly may, but you absolutely don’t know that for a fact. It happens often and your message might be all the powerful if you try to be more committed to what you actually do know.

    You could, for example, point out that if the song is intentionally written about sexual abuse or MK and this group chooses to carry that message via symbolism loaded with images that have undeniable connection to well known and accepted US govt. Programs, it is certainly a strange way to do so. This is especially so when considering they are not overt in their outcry of such abuses/programs. That is worth questioning. Then you may hypothesize that the reason is really they don’t want to upset the govt./big business because they are either, weak willed, eager for fame, illuminati puppets etc and that gives them no credibility in the use of the symbols for ‘the good cause’.

    Also, there seems to be a rather alarming reaction to this all in regard to meditation, yoga etc. Just because M P Hall, A Crowley, M H Blavatsky, A Baily etc and their Freemason colleagues have seemingly hijacked Eastern methods of human exploration over to the more sinister side of the equation doesn’t mean it’s all necessarily evil. Even mind control has two sides remember. Trying to control your own mind is a good thing you’d have to agree considering you argue for the cause and case of the ‘strong minded’ ie. those who implement their own ‘mind control’ to resist that of others. Hence yoga and meditation. Perhaps if everyone did the odd stretch in the morning the fat in both their brain and arse might give way to the point of positive. And meditation may be a form of dissociation but having time out from constant the clatter information in all forms is actually very beneficial once you resume your critical thinking afterwards. There are always, at least, to sides in any equation. Not to mention it might help people to understand the possibility of the mind existing outside of the body which is both a fact and important to understand, absolutely and crucially so. This leads to my final point.

    One thing that is certainly a worry in regard to some comments is the frequent messenger’s asking ‘well what do you do about it?’ First would be, follow VC’s fantastic research base and do some of your own. That is, I think, the point. Get aware and don’t take ANYTHING for granted. This is a battle of mind and soul and you need to start using both. Use the mind for logic and critical analysis and the soul for intuition. They can take cut away at the pillars of strength that prop up our society (Law, etc.) but the sole is your own and only you can cut at that. That is the primary of Gods will is it not? Having one of our own? Explore it and follow what you FEEL is right.

    Pax VC.


  59. that was the most cruel thing she did at the end of the song how she just let the little girl fall in the hole.

  60. I had some more time to watch this video and have come to the conclusion that it is mainly about analogies regarding fairytales (Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland) and The Matrix. Notice the rabbit in the hole they are digging, a very amusing detail ;-).

  61. @ Keleigh — You do ask some good questions, I grant you. But this field of esoteric inquiry does not lend itself so easily to “point blank questions”. You cannot expect Vigilant to have all the answers and how he arrived at them. That is why these things are called “esoteric” or “hidden” — the knowledge is not easily explained. When esoteric ideas can be explained, as here and on other websites, not all questions can be answered either. Much must be left up to the inquirer to do their own research, and figuring out what alley ways they want to go down to pursue their own answers. This is no small task, either, knowing which pathways to go down.

    At any time the inquirer can say all this is bosh. This is fine too. Later they might come back to it. Bear in mind also that esoteric inquiry and the subject of mind control are not necessarily the same thing either. But as Vigilant and others have shown, these fields often do overlap. And here — for WHAT ENDS — is where you need to fill in the gaps.

    You made this statement:

    “My opinion as far as how these videos effect people who have already reached puberty is that mind control is a huge stretch. ”

    Call it mass manipulation, then. Reality consists of infinite multi-dimensional levels, so signals of mass manipulation can come at the public — from birth to death — from any one of these levels. What Vigilant analyzes is a specific area — those videos that contain hidden, esoteric symbols. Looking at what passes for “youth culture”, however, what I notice at least is its emphasis on SEX. I mean specifically the more degraded videos of gyrating suggestive bodies, foul language, drugs — all in videos. On this level these kinds of videos are aimed at, I think, the lowest of the ignorant and superficial young. Even Lady Gaga’s videos. I think at this level the aim is to keep these ignorant people ASLEEP and channeled into destructive paths until they are burned out.

    I don’t think you are aware how deep mass manipulation (other word for mind control) really goes. Have you looked at the various research done into a man named Edward Bernays, a nephew of Sigmund Freud? The Elites really do see common people as sheep, to be herded and slaughtered when needed. And how can this be? Do you know what it is to live and breath in rarefied atmospheres that these Elites live in? From this vantage point, it is all too easy to look down at stinking humanity, and want to manipulate it and worse. Especially if this humanity ever threaten the Power Elites — those REALLY calling the shots of your lives.

    It is more than coincidence, I think, that George Orwell (some suspect he was a member of the Elites — and frankly he was) — to have written “1984” in which one of the slogans, which we are VERY familiar with today says — WAR IS PEACE:

    “The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”–George Orwell’s 1984

    This is called The Revelation of the Method. It is said that the Elites (Illuminati) have revealed their method.

    What the inquirer needs to do — is to decide for himself if it is true or not.

    My advise would be to carefully study Edward Bernays, the father of public relations. He combined ideas on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Sigmund Freud. Bernays was one of the first to attempt to manipulate public opinion using the subconscious. He felt this manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the ‘herd instinct’.

    Then go and watch the excellent, award-winning 2002 documentary for the BBC, The Century of the Self, by Adam Curtis (of ‘The Power of Nightmares’ fame).

  63. @Lily Blake

    What a coincide that you also mention Edward Bernays. I had the same thought when I read the line doubting the influence and effects of subconscious manipulation ;-).

  64. I just wanted to add that it is not the subconscious state per se, but the selfish conscious manipulation that is the real culprit.

    The self-proclaimed ‘elites’ believe they have understanding, giving them the right to manipulated what they call the unwashed masses, but little do they know about real Truth. They have just gone from one illusion into another. Their awakening will be an even more rude one 😉

  65. Thank you Vigilant, great work.

    To all of the people who say oh why *insert name of a pop artist/group*, that is not possible, they are Christian…

    Come on people, the Illuminati have infiltrated maaany organizations. There are even rumours that they founded the Jehova’s witness and the Baptist and Evangelist churches. So beware. They may say they pray to the Lord but that may not be the case at all.

    Look at the Jonas Brothers, they are supposedly Christian and their image is completely Illuminati. There are even articles on the web about how Disney is the home of the Illuminati to spread their messages to the younger audiences. So pleaaase. If they say they are Christian does not mean they actually are.

  66. Wonderful post!

    I think that while younger fans don’t know about MK or symbolism they should always question the meanings behind the things they read/listen to. Always. Why is the video like this? What does this represent? What are these images? Why is she saying this? Don’t just consume but analyse. And like VC said, he’s not accusing them of anything. He’s just wondering why this obvious imagery is there?

    Maybe is not the band, maybe it’s the people managing it. Maybe is not the management, maybe it’s the directors/designers/photographers taking a piss.

    Point is: question, analyse and wonder. Always.

  67. Gabriel T. Hammond on

    I like the idea of what you are trying to do here V… I think its good to explore the rich symbolism of our Western Occult traditions and it’s Eastern counterparts and how these symbols are used to express strong human articulations through art, moving pictures and music.

    Unfortunately you fall short in your understanding of the guardians of these symbols, however. It seems you that you follow the rest of the hysteric, scared sheep when thinking that “The Illuminati” is somehow working to mind control the masses?

    Western Occultism actually in its proper form (admittedly there are corrupt lodges out there) originally was a conspiracy to free the masses from their bonds of religion, paranoia and superstition and why the myriad of brotherhoods that have sought to further this very loose agenda have met such harsh suppression from mostly scared, religious people who really don’t want to have true liberty.

    Don’t get me wrong… I’m aware that there are forces that seek to mind control people and some of your readers are on to it, as evidenced by the writings in this string having to do with corporate brain washing techniques to work people to the bone. This simply meets the motive of most businesses to keep productivity and profits up. It’s that simple.

    Broaden your understanding of The Western Occult Tradition before attacking it. Sure it’s diffuse, confusing, shrouded in dark imagery, but it cannot be put into the box as being one organization. There is an overall aim of all legitimate mystery schools, however, and that is to help people to understand themselves and the world around them sort of through the path of Jungian psychology. I think it’s great that modern artists are mining these rich hidden troves of symbology and they should be encouraged and not villified. It will enrich pop culture and make our arts and music more meaningful and therapeutic for the individuals who will figure out these meanings.

  68. I think Vigilant is well aware of the Western Mystery Tradition. His analysis of “Meet Me Half Way” by the Black Eye Peas expresses that understanding.

    His analyses of other videos are getting at something else altogether. He focuses in the trauma-based mind control known as Monarch programming, that evolved into MK ULTRA by individuals connected to the U.S. intelligence communities. It is this kind of programming that has usurped the use of cultural fantasy stories like the Wizard of Oz, Cinderella, Peter Pan, etc.

    What seems to twist all this is that some the authors of these stories themselves were Freemasons. But Freemasonry does not mean it is “all good” either. Point of fact, some of the initiates of the Western Mystery Tradition are the biggest snobs — and at the higher levels — the Power Elites — there are. Though they may wear the cloaks of being out for the “greater good”, they are hardly “guardians of their symbols”. If they were true guardians, this world would be a different place altogether.

    It is not as simple a question “that there are forces that seek to mind control people”. Since agendas wear disguises on top of disguises, the question is now the MATRIX itself and those who run it and your lives — the POWER ELITES. Some are Freemason, some are not.

    Hence the mention of Edward Bernays and the work he did in furthering the field of mind control techniques upon the “useless eaters” — the masses. Once you study Bernays, you begin to see that mass manipulation (hence mind control) is not only possible, but exists from birth to death. You are CONTROLLED.

    At this level of the MATRIX and above, you need to then familiarize yourself with the work of Alan Watt, the link I’ve given above. Once you can see what he sees, your eyes will open to the true extent of what REALLY is going on and how the Power Elites work the MATRIX — with all disguises ripped away. You will see their real agenda is NOT the “greater good” and other trite belief systems like that.

    You said “It will enrich pop culture and make our arts and music more meaningful and therapeutic for the individuals who will figure out these meanings.” This, frankly, is laughable. “Enrich pop culture”?

    I will, however, agree with you a certain segment of society — who may or may not know a thing about the Western Mystery Tradition, have at least gone New Age and brought to society certain of the therapies, like aroma, music or sound, color therapies (if this is what you had in mind by using the word “therapeutic”). This segment of New Age thought has also brought to the fore therapeutic techniques of yoga, Tai Chi, meditation (centering the mind and ridding the mind of the incessant stream of consumer imagery and other things), so important to “knowing thyself”. I don’t know for a fact the Western Mystery Tradition did all this. I personally think these changes for the better came about either from a “force”, or enough people having seen through the MATRIX that they changed what they could and got the ball rolling.

    You wrote: “Western Occultism actually in its proper form (admittedly there are corrupt lodges out there) originally was a conspiracy to free the masses from their bonds of religion, paranoia and superstition and why the myriad of brotherhoods that have sought to further this very loose agenda…”

    Did they *really* do all this? Are they the ones, then, who have put SEX to the fore in these degraded videos of no-talent “artists”? Are these the ones who abet “sex documentaries” that show how wonderful being sexually liberated is? Are they the ones, then, who are the hard-core atheists who want nothing to do with the inconvenience of anything associated with the word “God”? Are these the ones who are building, brick by brick, an out of control, incredibly degraded world? But let me ask you this: What do these so-called Enlightened Western Occultists DO to actually help people, other than these “wonderful” changes?

    My question to you is: What in God’s name (I use this term loosely) makes you think such adherents of Western Occultism is really out for the “greater good”? My experience on Western esoteric email lists is I’ve noticed their conceit, snobbishness, elitism, and egoism.

    All of this is not to say I am against the Western Mystery Tradition per se. It’s a starting point, but I don’t see evidence they actually do any good, other than offering a study of hidden symbols. After that comes their egos.

  69. i barely knooe paramore tho..keep it up VC..But i have a do u seem to kno all these things>>i mean how dyu kno abt this occult groups and stuf like dat???

  70. Paramore is one of my favorite bands, and I’m very dissapointed that they too are now a victim of the “System.”
    I’m not too sure they know what the symboism they use truly means, because you posted pictures of their younger days before their rise to fame.

    After going to this website and reading all the articles about MK, I couldn’t consider their new album a coincidence of any sort, there’s just too much symbolism. Overall, Paramore has a really good message in their music, and they have just been sucked in by the industry. They go to all the MTV shows and they love it.

    You also have to consider how brainwashed America is, becuase all my cousins are christians, but they listen to all the horrible music on the radio without questioning it’s meaning, and watch TV and movies that are trying to devalue and desensitize youth and IT’S WORKING WHETHER THEY’RE AWARE OF IT OR NOT!

    A friend of mine in an all girl band uses the circle above her eye “666” sign in a lot of pictures and I’m positive she has no clue what it even means. The lead singer in that band loves lightening bolts and has a tattoo of the eye of horus. They do this stuff on their own, but have no idea to their sinister meaning.

  71. Dang I like this group. Moving on a lot of these people were groomed. I think it was, I can’t think of his name VC has something wrote about him on his site (i think) it was the rapper guy in jail. He said that Jay-Z was groommed at a young age to the occult by a man named _________. I don’t know I read the article and heard the interview many times. Like Oprah, that is not her name and we know she was raped and molested. It is rumored that her father was military, and she was a MK slave……….Weather you agree with VC or not, it is obvious something is not right and me myself I beleive that their plan is working. I have noticed people now days don’t care about nothing. They walk around naked, talk about sex every thing that we know is not cool. We actually think and beleive it’s OK. That is the main thing that urks me, it’s like HELLO that is not OK. People ask why, why because it is working, thats why look at all the dumb butts around look at the world. Oh it’s working. What makes an artist accept this is a good question so mabey it is mind control, manipulation, grooming who knows, ask GOD. Be for real you know D well these people are not warning us about nothing. If thats the case we would not see devils in the videos. As far as the Paramore pictures, It funny that many artist from as far back as I can remember like the TuPac days LOL black/white why are they all taking pictures in the same corney A$% poses. There are 1000’s of pictures from Alliyah, tuPac, Prince, white actors/actress and the list goes on. Why? Sorry for mispelled words submitt!

  72. You should try to interview this band and find out if they know anything.We are truly living in the age of the Revelation of the Method.

  73. That darned one eyed symbol is something people do just because they think its cool.
    Please, I see teenagers doing it, and they don’t even know what it means.

    Y’know what? Forget this. We all might as well stop listening to music, right?
    Since this guy claims that everything we listen to is evil.

    Y’know what? Forget this. We all might as well stop listening to music, right?
    Since this guy claims that everything we listen to is evil.

    When did anybody body here told you every music is evil?

  76. hi vigilant,

    excellent analysis as usual. I notice you have made many references to Alice in Wonderland. Something that has alarmed me recently is the emergence of advertisements on Youtube for a new show called

    "Alice" on the Syfy channel, complete with a link asking viewers to "follow the white rabbit" as an animated man with a faceless rabbit costume on his head runs around on the screen. Appears quite disturbing in light of your articles, wonder if you could keep an eye on that show and maybe do an article on it.

    also in response to many comments i saw on the "Christian" nature of paramore… i read something which pointed out that many of these artists have been linked to southern christian roots and specifically the Assemblies of God .. i know Elvis and Jonas brothers both come from this group, Michael jackson from Jehovah's witnesses, and was wondering if perhaps these religious organiziations could be a cover for grounds in which new monarch slaves are found. I dont mean to denounce any religious organizations, but you never know if certain organizations could be covers for something else.

  77. chris: what do we have to look forward to? I’m literally asking, is there any hope? They’re slowly swallowing EVERYTHING.
    i bloody agree!! we all need to unite & demolish the illuminati & it’s side kicks! Symbolism is everywhere all the time in my God damn face…there’s no escaping much for a SECRET society!! as for good clean music..i always refer ppl to the Backstreet Boys ofcourse.. tho i’m pretty sure thats not really ur cup of tea. There’s an artist named Daniel Merriweather who is AMAZINGO.. his song Change is the bestttesstt. Also The Script (Irish band) are good to listen too along with M.I.A (altho her music is pretty crazy, but great none the less!)

    Noor al Haqiqa: i agree with everything u said. It’s bloody madness. It’s incorporated everywhere, especially in young kids programmes & cartoons jus so that they can be brainwashed at a young age to accept whatever is thrown at them by the media without questioning it.

    Keleigh: PISS OFF!! why do u keep coming here u retard??u dont belive in anythin that VC says but u still come back with ur same stupid questions & comments. Go away.

  78. ALSOOO can anyone refer me to a site or something to do with Twilight and Harry Potter?? I’m a big fan of both & i’ve heard that they’ve got symbolism etc within their movies & books. I’ve failed to see them, probably because i like them so much that i subconsciously disregard anything that may link it to the occult. But the 7th Harry Potter book defo has some sort of sinister tension to it.



    Now that’s I’ve gotten your attention (hopefully, the name calling worked…)

    Not every artist/ all music are evil. HAHAH..i think it’s cuz people most people have associated with the idea of music=lucifer=bad…hahaha…Well. I mean, can’t blame them right?? No one wants to bother to check for themselves anymore and expects everyone else to do all the work. Hahaha…we are NOT going to survive in a socialist/communist environment. They WILL make us suffer. haha..i can see it.





    Whatever, I’m done with commenting. Feeding into the conspiracy theories IS EXACTLY WHERE THEY WANTED YOU TO BE.(I DON’T MEAN YOUR WORK VC, YOU’VE DONE A GREAT JOB IN PAVING THE WAY FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. YOU’VE HELPED OPEN UP MY EYES TO THE TRUTH OF GOD (as well as thanks to all of the people who has contributed their thoughts. They’re asking questions, talking about it..WHICH IS GOOD!! my only wish for you now VC is that I pray that you can wake up as well if you haven’t already…you will be in my prayers! ) THERE’S NO POINT IN FIGHTING EACH OTHER EITHER CUZ IT WON’T SOLVE ANYTHING AND THAT’S WHAT THEY WANTED AS WELL……..

    I received my calling and will do whatever it takes to carry out GOD’S GOOD WILL from now on. If you’ve read this far into this post, then I hope you will be able to take something away from this. AND NO I’M NOT FROM THE GOVERNMENT EITHER!!!!


  80. Critical thought is so clearly out of the window for the majority. So any new world order takeover that may be looming is going to be easy as fucking pie to accomplish.

    No comment on the fuckery.

  81. There you go, Keleigh. You said it. Now you know. Critical thought is out the window, and it is planned that way with the Power Elites and those that work within their agenda: the corporations, government, the entertainment industry, wall street, advertising agencies, and so on. Now that the mass manipulation is in place, one hardly notices the CONTROL. And we are told new technologies, like chip implantation, are good for us. They tell us all the good things chip will do, and it sounds reasonable. But we do not see how the government has access to the details of our very lives. This is just the tip of the ice berg. There is far more to it.

    False flag operations, for instance, to frighten the public into submission and cry “keep us safe!” You’d be surprised what could be a false flag operation when you look at the 10pm slightly news at night.

  82. OK let me put it this way: there are many ways of thinking: logic, critical thought, and magical.

    Now if you just want to stick to logic (wherein manipulators can predict the outcome of your thinking), and if you just want to stick to critical thought — you will bypass the patterns, and it will be an open door for your manipulators to usher in the new world order. Because your mind will not be able to see or accept the overall patterns of what they are up to, and who they are, and so on. Such people are usually the cheer-leading section for their masters, so long as there is food on the table, and so on.

    The way of thinking esoterically (or magically) allows for the patterns to show themselves, i.e. you begin to see the wizard behind the curtain pulling the levers, and you happen to notice the king has no clothes, and so on.

    The way to go is to keep your mind open enough to allow for the magical, or esoteric, way of thinking, along with balancing it out with critical thought and logic. To stick to only one side of that equation and you are not getting a true picture of reality. Once it all comes down, this is where those that don’t understand what’s going on will be dangerous. Perhaps it’s planned that way. I don’t know.

  83. I’ve mentioned seeing the patterns. I also think in a highly critical manner. It is possible to be critical while seeing the commonalities. But I won’t stop being critical just because I see it when I know there’s more behind that curtain than meets the eye.

  84. Excellent website vigilant. Your exposes are incredible. I see some of the comments by people wondering exactly what type of music to listen to that isn’t part of the “conspiracy”. There are a number of artists who actually sing/rap about the issues we discuss on your page. A few are ill Bill (The Hour of Reprisal), Immortal Technique (Revolutionary Vol. 2 is the best), Wookiefoot (Activate), and Sabac to name a few. There ARE real artists out there aware of the scourge, making songs that expose them. The future of music are these artists and it is our job to spread the word where the TRUE music is available.

  85. “The Truth is not for everyone, it is only for those who seek it.” – Andy Wyn

    I can understand the people’s frustration that they are aware of the bullshit going on, and they then try to spread it to everyone else. At what point, and I know many, are we so eager to justify and somewhat “force” the notions and truth upon others. As soon as we begin to do that, we no better than the illuminati.

    Knowledge should be neutral, whether it exposes or enforces any idea. Yes, we can do all we can to provide the tools (the information) for others to read and enter the endless depth of the rabbit hole. But none of us have any right to push anyone into the rabbit hole if they choose not to enter. Not everyone is ready to go down and search the depths.

    Like many posters here, including myself, we are aware of whats happening, we are to some extent “awake”. But it is important to understand, that we are all “awake” at different levels. So it should not matter that we cannot agree on one issue or the other. This time now, we are entering a stage of “global awakening”, so its all a matter of time for everyone to smell the roses, whether it be just in time…or too late.

    Also, another point to address is that every person here on this earth has entered a vehicle (a body) to learn certain challenges and lessons to further develop our ever existing and ever evolving spirit. We are all learning different lessons and at varied speeds.

    Peace & Love,

  86. Keleigh….vigilants job is not to be debatical with you or anyone else on this page. He has laid down the foundation and now it is up to us all to decide whether or not we want to build upon that foundation. Just because one assumes that there is not truth doesn’t make it a reality. You cannot expect for vigilant to have all the answers to the uncommon questions that you pose. There is a really good book that you may want to consider when it comes to mind manipulation and how it’s done called, “The age of manipulation, the con in confidence and the sin in sincere”, it is coming from a sophist perspective rather than a christian and would give you a clearer and more ideal answer concerning the knowledge that you seek.

    Greece called into existence a class of teachers known as sophists. They were a professional class rather than a school, and as such they were scattered over Greece and exhibited professional rivalries. The educational demand was partly for genuine knowledge, but mostly reflected a desire for spurious learning that would lead to political success. They wandered about Greece from place to place, gave lectures, took pupils, and entered into disputations.

    At the end of the day it’s not about critical thought, it’s about truth!

    @Lily Blake …Thanks for the insight on Edward Bernays, I’m going to look him up.

  87. Chuckle..more pointless nonsense from Vigilant…

    Who the chuff will notice any of the symbolism if they have no idea in the first place…to most its just a pretty noise with some nice pictures… hardly a recipe of mind control since their minds are already mashed by the rock cocaine.

  88. Very good as usual. I have a similar concern about what to do with all this knowledge as someone mentioned. Wish someone could stop this on a worldwide level

  89. Asking one person (or a group of people, or several groups of people, etcetc) WHO’S idea it was to saturate all media with these symbols or WHY they’re doing it is useless, no?

    What would we do if we found out it was some Wizard of Oz type character behind a curtain, calling all the shots? Lynch them? For every one of us there could be a thousand suspects. And to people who are coming here to ask VC “what we should do” and insisting that diagnosing the symptoms are useless and that we need more direct action; what exactly COULD we do right now? It isn’t hopeless, that’s a clue.

    Media is a microchasm of the world at large.
    Politics have died. Democracy is an illusion and all things fair and just are reduced to concepts. H1N1 has the president claiming a state of emergency. A state of emergency is passage into martial law. Martial law entails confiscation of all protection the people have against the unholy army that has been training overseas to become desensitized to murdering the innocent.

    We are living in a world where the president of the USA can throw up the devil horns and no one gives a shit.

    What should we do? Where should we go next? This is why the idea of religion comes up at all in the comments here at VC; because God is the only answer we have.

    We have the power to say NO to those who are crushing us. We have the power to educate, enlighten, and lead ourselves into a promising future. Lose all your friends because they got tired of your warnings. Make your family irate because you won’t stop talking about the state of disillusionment. Make every effort you can.

    VC, Keleigh, and everyone inbetween is under the same sky. We’re in this together, regardless of our beliefs. They win when we turn against each other. Respect, inform, and love.

  90. About DISNEY.. We can just check which children came out of this org, Britney, Timberlake for instance… the fruits of Disney
    A good analysis on Disney is done by Lennon Honors check the videos “Demons in the Outfield; Pedophilic Baseball” (and the revised one) plus the “The Early Works of Walt Disney”.

  91. Funny how people say their Christians and thus won’t do anything like making a pact with those bastard mindcontrollers. Or even being mindcontrolled by them.

    If they’re where really Christians they wouldn’t use the rockSign cause the rockers who use(d) them all say it’s the devils horn sign. So why should it change all of a sudden? Just because people don’t know how to put their middle, ring finger and thumb doesn’t mean the sign means something else.

    Also like you’re end post said about the modern man is clearly show with those post saying it ain’t the devil sign. The one eye symbolic is clear to spot and people denying it just because they’re Christians should wonder why the use symbols and signs. they Should also wonder why this selfcalled Christians lack the knowlegde written in a book they SO called believe in. If you believe something without knowing what it really means you’re just as dumb as a person who believes in evil being the way.

    But hey where all stupid and dumb at the moment cause only a few of us are really freed from the Cube(open up a cube and see a cross and than wonder why the Roman Church keeps the most important information away from US the people that make sure they have money to grow).

  92. Daisy Wescombe on

    Pause the Video at 2.18 / 2.19 mins, where she sits on the edge of the grave. Notice the Devil behind her legs? I think this is ‘message’ is very cleverly hidden……

  93. Ps im not saying Christ didn’t exist or believing that way is wrong, but it should be noted and thinked about why we know so little of the believe we follow.

    I can’t say im Christian, cause i know to little about it. so i try to learn more about it and the Koran and thus hope to understand what they mean. Than i can say i understand it as much as possible for me and than i can say if i really follow it

  94. MTV=eMpTy Vision

    In regards to those who question the in-tent,
    of the creations of these machinations.
    Pay at-tention…
    Be ye aware that ignorance is an evil in itself.

  95. I notice that some posters are condemning the use of symbols in these videos. Symbolism can be defined as the artistic imitation or invention that is a method of revealing or suggesting immaterial, ideal, or otherwise intangible truth or states. Before the advent of popular music videos, this symbolism could largely be found in art, which restricted it to a rather small (elite) group. Now the masses can take notice of this symbolism, by means of popular culture and modern day mass-communication.

    With symbols it is the same as with words, some are placed together to form a beautiful poem or speak about Truth, while these same words, placed in a different context, could just as well convey a message of hate or promote a lie.

    Two fine examples of ‘modern’ art with some very profound symbolism are e.g. in these drawings of Dali & Escher

    As said before, a picture is worth a thousand words.

  96. why do people instantly think that symbolism instantly makes the band ‘bad’. There are a lot of other influences around the band, their manager, designers, directors, record companies, writers etc etc etc. Songs aren’t always written by the band – EVEN if it says they wrote it, a lot of song writers are paid off not to claim on their songs, most take the payment because they can always write more.
    The question is, is it introducing mind control on the masses to eventually enable us to accept it as ‘normal’
    Or is it a covert way of exposing mind control to the masses by those that are inside and can’t get out? Either way we must keep our eyes and ears open, and forget the rose tinted glasses, because I think we all know that fame and money isn’t ‘all good’.

  97. When are bad acting people going to be acknowledged as BAD people. One is called by ones actions, are the not? e.g. Lynch mob for lynchers, Ghouls or Klan’s men for those who hide behind pointy headed white sheets and spew hate, and idiots for those who see mind controlling music videos yet make excuses for the artists who present them to the public.

  98. These artists are human just like us. Everyone has a purpose here. Without darkness there can be no light. I’m on a journey, vc is on a journey, paramore is on a journey, rihanna is on a journey, lady gaga, beyonce, jay-z, ALL of the people on this earth are on a unique journey. Everyone plays a part. When someone says to me “you’re under mind control” “this image is meant to harm your subconscious” – well then, I am going to have some pretty hard ass questions for whoever is telling me this and if they won’t (or CAN’T) answer that then maybe they should re-evaluate ever having told me in the first place. The rampant hostility here only makes you guys seem all the more insincere and unhinged in your theories (SOME, not all, but you know who you are). When questions are met with that same hostility and condenscension then something is terribly wrong.

    The battle of ‘good vs evil’ is most prominently an internal one that each person goes through. If media manipulation is guilty of anything, it is that they KNOW this fully, and exploit that weakness we all possess. Those internal battles are often played out among each other because of lashing out, whether it be lashing out the hatred, or sharing our love. One person will watch this video (just for example) and see nothing but negativity, they will then try to spread that to everyone possible. Another will watch it and feel some positive identification with it’s theme, they wll try to spread that to everyone possible. What do you think the media, or that man behind the curtain would prefer? Discourse, disagreement, and distraction are their goals and it’s working. Man’s quest to explain his existance has been hijacked and corrupted for money, politics, and domination; as long as we keep killing each other, they don’t have to. I’m not pulling this from some text I’ve read, I’m pulling it from my own senses and what I observe around me and I’m not sure most people are doing that. I can’t quote a million theorists, biblical words, runes, scrolls, symbols or ancient prophecies. I don’t need to. Those external things are not required and the majority of them are so corrupted that I can’t believe they are still trusted sources by so many. If that makes me some sort of devil-spawn then so be it.

    Semantics at this point. You win. Peace out.

  99. Keliegh- If you don’t care why keep coming back. It does not take asking all the questions all the rants and raves to know something stupid is going on. I don’t care about the butterflies and the girl falling in the hole, the BEP, and so on but when you have people flat out with the images of the devil in their videos Beyonce, Rihanna etc.. that was enough for me. It’s not about stop lisitening to their music or mabey you would choose to stop listening to their music. It’s about living your own life making decisions for yourself not the one the TV and radio lure you to make. It’s about if you do beleive in God you might want to get right with him. All the nagging and so forth it’s not that serious. It shouldn’t take reading 3 or 4 articles if you didn’t get any thing out the first one, just cut your Ipod back on and jam to the beat. It’s not rocket science. Stand on your own two feet, make your own choices and get right with God if you beleive. damn all this I see the signs and do this video,oh thats not true, the signs are warning signs, VC is lying, they are helping us , all the ranting, try to get the picture the first time around or see it as entertainment. The ranting and raving is for nothing it’s all actually plain and simple and it doesn’t take video after video DUH. If you don’t beleive keep listening and jamming. It would be dumb to just watch sign after sign video after video. Either you think it is or it ain’t. , it’s not rocket science. If you can’t understand it, it’s not true right/wrong whatever move on.

  100. anybody can say they’re religious…that doesn’t make it so. i’m not surprised. there’s that saying for a reason “sell your soul to the devil for riches and fame.” honestly, nothing surprises me anymore. i do not believe in too many coincidences. it simply can’t be a coincidence that everyone is now doing the ‘one eye’ [all seeing eye/eye of horus], throwing up diamonds with their hands, wearing all black, showing butterflies everywhere [miley cyrus much]. there is a reason it’s difficult to make it in the music industry. jayz said ‘jesus can’t save you. life begins when the church ends.’ meanwhile, rihanna is running around naked, posing in pics with devil horns, wearing all black. and beyonce. in destinys child, they said in “Survivor” that they’d never sacrifice their christianity. they even sang religious songs. now on, she’s wearing the baphomet. all while married to jayz who calls himself ‘jehova’ aka god. come on people, wake up!!

  101. I really don’t listen to this group, but I will say that just because someone says that they’re Christian doesn’t mean that it’s true. Satan is the father of lies and he makes deception look pretty and believable. It’s his job! lol. That’s why it surprises me when people say that Beyonce can’t be a satanist because she prays to God in front of her fans. First of all 1. she could be lying (because if she reveals the truth then she will lose fans.) 2. When she prays she does mention Jesus’s name (to my knowledge) so we really don’t know who she is referring to as god. And Rihanna “jokingly” said that she worshiped the devil (that’s not funny) and she never denied the accusations and yet people still won’t believe it. lol. These artists are pulling the wool over people’s eyes and getting rich in the process. Why are people so quick to defend these people that we don’t personally know? We really don’t know what these people do when the cameras and lights are gone. There’s to much repetition of symbols and signs to not be suspicious.

  102. This reminds me of the movie, “Butterfly Effect” with Ashton Kutcher. As you can imagine from the title, it totally exposes the techniques of mind-control while at the same time kind of de-sensitizes the viewer. It’s deliberately blurring the line between fantasy and the horror of what’s really going on in the lives of the victims.

  103. Hey readers…if you go to the section “educate yourself” you will see that the owner of this website has a recomendation for the book “The Secret Doctrine” which is the bases of theosophical beliefs.

    Educate yourself on this book

    Why would someone so adamant about fighting the evil of this world recommend such a book to his readers?

    the point of this is to encourage you to not just take everything on this website for face value and to look at all sides coming to your own conclusions. This website does exactly what it accuses and brainwashes people to not think or research for themselves.

  104. Fantastic analysis, Vigilant. I don’t find myself normally listening to the lines of Paramore or Lady Gaga, and consequently would not have any initial suspicion regarding intention behind their work; I would just as soon write it off as garbage pop music and leave it there. After reading several of your analyses, the probability, in my mind, that there is decided application of applied occult symbolism within these videos seems to be relatively high.

    I think your efforts here are extremely valuable and am eager to see the next installment. Cheers…

  105. Some “illuminist” quotes, maybe of interest for those trying to grasp the bigger picture. paramore, jay z, rihanna etc, etc, these personalities are replaceable little nuts and bolts in a much larger machine already set in motion. Also these personalities are constantly watching their backs for hungrier fame whores seem always to be willing to make a killing to get that place.

    Richard N. Gardner, in Foreign Affairs (April 1974)

    “The existing order is breaking down at a very rapid rate, and the main uncertainty is whether mankind can exert a positive role in shaping a new world order or is doomed to await collapse in a passive posture. We believe a new order will be born no later than early in the next century and that the death throes of the old and the birth pangs of the new will be a testing time for the human species.”

    President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, in The New York Times (April 1995)

    “Alchemy for a New World Order” — article by Stephen John Stedman in Foreign Affairs (May/June 1995)

    Dr. Augustus O. Thomas, president of the World Federation of Education Associations (August 1927), quoted in the book International Understanding: Agencies Educating for a New World (1931)

    “… when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people … will hate the new world order … and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”

    David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.

    “The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [Marxism / fascism, socialism, capitalism, etc.] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other.”

    A letter written by FDR to Colonel House, November 21st, l933

    “The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.”

    Professor Arnold Toynbee, in a June l931 speech before the Institute for the Study of International Affairs in Copenhagen.

    “The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi occult power which….pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I.”

    Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom (1913)

    “What is important is to dwell upon the increasing evidence of the existence of a secret conspiracy, throughout the world, for the destruction of organized government and the letting loose of evil.”

  106. ParaMORE is the maiden name of the mother of one of the band members. The fact that paraMOUR, which is French for illicit lover, is coincidental. You people are seeing what you want to see, period.

  107. i use to be all into this shit…but i realised every big artist in the industry has sumthin to do with all this…fuck it…its not like we can do sumthin about it

  108. “Paramore” or best known “con amo’re” is a style, a tendency, used in music to represent a specific tempo, a slow and tender manner.
    Indeed, the name is sooo “mind blowing” and subversive.

    I think some people are sooo bored with their empty and meaningless lives, they see conspiracies everywhere.
    You think your neighbour is a mind-controler, a conspiracy agent? Better check it. NOW! 😀
    Seeya, keep splashing with mud as before, you are doing a great job. :thumbsup:

    Paramour is an anachronistic term meaning illicit lover

    At least you have made the effort, in search of Truth I hope, to look up Paramore at Merriam-Webster, but I believe that in this case it would be more Truthful to quote the whole entry:


    Main Entry: par·amour
    Pronunciation: \ˈpa-rə-ˌmu̇r\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English, from par amour for the sake of love, willingly, from Anglo-French par amur
    Date: 14th century

    : an illicit lover

  110. I’ve read almost all your articles and am interested I admire your inteligence please email me I have some questions but yeah good job

  111. Not connected to the subject, but here it is. Did u know about this pic of P DIDDY and his daughters? Do u find it normal? Cute? I dont. Its paedophilia 100%. What is ur price for ur girls, idiot?

    And this is what he said regarding the photoshoot. He talks about sexiness and chic in a picture in which appear 2 naked babies in a complete inappropriate way.

    “The concept of ‘Black on Black’ in this story represents a level of strength, a level of beauty, a level of sexy and chic that I really want to portray. It’s the future. And it’s not just a race thing; it’s almost a redefinition of the color. Think about how ignorant people actually make the color black represent something negative. Black is so beautiful, I see it in everything I am, as a person, as a man, as a fashion professional. Black is beautiful.”

  112. oh i bet you got this band right, alright! anything for money and if they get superfamous, well, nuff said. to have everyone under control the elite have to have every musical genre covered, don’t they.

  113. Annnd this is why I don't want my favorite bands to get popular. asdjlkajsf Am I the only 13 yr old that is awake?



  116. I signed a music-record contract last month, do I enter in the category of “satanist” now? :blink:
    What do you think? Should I give up this assignment, this fabulous and full of glamour life and take a job at PizzaMart, be a hamburgher-pusher all my shitty existence and live a “good-christian” life? What should I do? I am confused now. :snif:

  117. Great post, eye opening as usaul!! I was blown away recently when I saw the pic of Miley C. and she got a tattoo under one of her breast that says “Just Breathe”. Its got to have some deeper meaning than just the statement! Just wanted to [ass that along….


  119. @ Adet #115 – My thanks to you for posting that link to

    Some heavy stuff on that site. After watching Demons in the Outfield I learned the difference between linear and non-linear thinking. I have a question: he used the term “temporal transference of subliminal character imprint”. Is this part of what they call Neuro-Linguistic Programming? I cannot figure out just what NLP is, but I do know from certain esoteric email lists, they are big into NLP. I read about NLP on websites, but I still don’t understand what it is.

  120. Oh my god, what's wrong with you people? Don't you know good music when you hear it? I mean, what's your problem? Don't recognise a good band when you see one? I mean, what the fuck did you listen to? Opera? Oh no, wait. That's brain-washing too, cause its music as well. Gosh, I agree with Elizabeth. TAKE A GOOD BLOODY LOOK IN THE MIRROR, MATES.

  121. the large Kahoona on

    Start listening to Muddy Waters, Hank Williams, real music for real humans.
    I’m in the music biz, what people will do is pathetic, real musicians is what people should listen to. Find the real ‘ soul’ music, stuff like this Paramore is crap, there is little musical dedication, it is all electronic studio manipulated bullsheist

  122. EEEEVERYBODY! If your trying to look for music that probably isn’t a part of the system or probably on’t be for a while, listen to like indie band or shit that isn’t in the mainstream music industry, because if its stuff no one’s ever heard of do you really think the Iluminati would care to suck them into their clan? If barely anyone listens to it, whats the point.

  123. By the way I’m 12 (going on 13) , and pretty much MY WHOOLE SCHOOL knows about this nonsense, it’s all they talk about! Including a lot of kids at other schools too. People are waking up!

  124. Stella Hitchens on

    Paramore’s band members are chrisitians, they pray before every performance and have not hidden this fact in any of their public appearances. That is part of the reason I listen to and love their music. If what you say is true then they are being mislead by the people managing their music/videos etc. I hope they take heed to these comparisons of the symbolism depicted in their songs and let their listeners know that they are not involved in any such things. I’m sure the idea of this video was someone else’s and they were not thinking of how it would be interpreted or viewed by their critics. I love the way their music is written, symbolic in nature but relating to the real world also and filled with emotion. They songwriting is genius and I love their sound. By the way I am a 40 year old African American female (not your typical Paramore fan). Oh and my kids love their music as much as I do. Paramore be forewarned and rebutt this garbage.

  125. Listen to their song “We Are Broken” from their Riot! album – the album that made them famous (courtesy of MTV, mind you). Something in that song makes me think of this article.

    I’ve been following this band ever since they became one of those unknown Indie bands. I adored their music. But they have completely sold out. Turned so mainstream. Their music is not as good as before. No wonder I don’t like them as much now.

  126. Jeff I don’t understand what makes you believe they are doing photo shoots for them to look “cool” like the old saying goes…
    If it talks like a duck quack likes a duck walks like a duck then it is a duck!

    If they are throwin up for an example “devil worhsipping signs ” and the “eye of horus” symbols. then obviously they are for the that specific religion and nothing else. This also shows that they attentions on being christian artists were not the truth and actual foundation for their band since day 1. The devil is a father of all lies and he will try and grab your attention quickly to lie to you .. believe his lies and get you to spread his lies. creating confusion. The devil is a liar and will always be one. It’s no coincidence that this is happening.
    some artists target other music genres to get money. it’s all about money to these people and luring people in. Honestly I disagree with your statement. It’s 2009! these artists , actors, gov. officials and anyone else will deceive many people as they can to make you believe they’re doing it because its “cool”
    I believe we should pray for not only these people but for ourselves, families and friends.. It’s important that we protect our minds and what is ethically right and wrong. We are all being programmed each day ( whether right or wrong) it is up to us to decide what we allow to be programmed into our mind and our children minds as well.
    I’ve provided a passage which shows how our society is like today. does anyone agree?

    2 Timothy chapter 3: The apostle Paul writes

    1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

    6They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. 8Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth—men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
    Paul’s Charge to Timothy
    10You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

  127. defending this group because they are labled christian rock at the local walmart is bullshit.

    to be christian means to be or to aspire to be christ-like.and that my friends means about

    99% of people that claim to be are infact not.get over think george bush is christain?


  128. Just because people say their christians, doesn’t mean they actually are. It’s what you do, not what you say.
    I’m not discediting Paramore’s beliefs, becuase who am I to judge. But whether they know/like it or not, they’re fallen victem to the System.
    That’s why it’s called MIND CONTROL because these people don’t understand that it’s themselves who are being controlled and lied to.

    Just look at this picture of a Jonas Brother wearing an ALEX CROWLEY t-shirt

    it’s everywhere!

  129. okay, first of all enough with the “paramore would never do that beacause they love jesus!” nonsense. they sold themselves to the illuminati and knowing how they operate it was most likely planned just after twilight i’m guessing. you want to be rich and famous? write what we tell you to write and put this in your videos. good work vc

  130. i like paramore but i didnt expect this from them, im really disappointed, well done guys

  131. Actually i wasn’t defending this group, even more, i think that all these “Christian” rock bands are more strange than those which suppose to be evil and etc. I was just asking is it really what i was thinking of? These eye inside triangle, other album covers like:
    What is suppose to mean? Is it what VC is talking about or is it something on the contrary?

  132. Lol, people like ‘Keleigh’ are the only ones not being brainwashed or having their ‘minds controlled’.
    You people are even worse, looking at a one-sided argument and suddenly taking it as the whole truth.
    Some of this things said here are rediculous…
    Also, I’ve seen people say ‘Oh, I can’t listen to paramore, lady gaga, etc’ anymore.’ THAT’S mind control, you are being told by people what not to listen to or watch and you are just ‘following’ it.
    The album art, song’s meaning all have credible explanations from the band themselves, your seeing what you want to see, not what’s really there.
    This clip is based on fantasy such as ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Wizard of Oz’, etc., seeing people throw them in with the occult, clearly you would see it in this video, even if it wasn’t intentional.
    You are all just following a single person’s opinion because it LOOKS credible, that is presented as FACT, but it’s really not too well put together, no prior acts or explanations are considered.
    I applaude people like ‘Keleigh’ for trying to bring some sense and validity to the topic.
    People calling ‘Nonbelievers’ in the THEORY ‘sucker’ or whatever don’t seem to realize THEY are the true suckers.

  133. You’re all taking this a bit too seriously. Some kinds of music are supposed to inspire our genetic youth, to enhance it and make it real, some have different tastes in music, thus different tastes in life.
    If this is a problem then write a letter, and throw it away because opinions are over-rated, or so I hear.
    Who are we to judge?

    We dont and cant possibly begin to understand what another person is thinking. So just let it go.

    Music is still Music, folks.

  134. Paraphrasing the deniers:

    “We are all on a journey, discovering ourselves, expressing ourselves, music no matter the content, and video no matter the symbolism, is merely an artistic reflection of reality and can have no negative effect on anyone”

    Hitler was on a life journey, discovering himself, expressing himself. He wrote a book about it. So was Saddam Hussein. So was that guy who opened fire at Ft. Hood. Hell, Tiger Woods was just discovering himself and expressing himself with lots of women other than his wife.

    My point is, your argument is not really an argument, it is an excuse. You are excusing negative behavior, and negative music and video that contains negative messages and symbolism and that influences people negatively, even if only subconsciously.

    What if these bands were using the swastika in their photo shoots and in their videos? Would you defend it? No, you would scream bloody murder, because you have been trained you to associate the swastika with evil. But the same culture that trained you to hate the swastika, for political reasons, has trained you to accept the devil horns hand sign as harmless, a symbol that represents not just an evil political movement, but represents the Master of Evil, the Father of Evil himself. Whether or not you want to believe in an evil supernatural spiritual higher intelligence, that symbol is giving praise to Evil, no different than the swastika. The same culture has plastered the Luciferian All-Seeing Eye on our money, representing that same evil intelligence, and most of us have looked at that symbol a million times without realizing what it represents.

    But we are all just on our own little life journey, experiencing and discovering evil as well as good, right? Nothing wrong with dabbling in a little evil right? Accepting a little evil, maybe practicing a little evil, listening to and watching and absorbing negative, yes, evil music. It won’t hurt. Right? The fact that the people running the country, and the world financial system, put an occult symbol that represents Lucifer on the dollar bill doesn’t mean anything, that’s totally ridiculous to even talk about such nonsense. The fact that all these musicians make that same symbol over and over again, the One Eye, thats just a bizarre coincidence, they must be doing it because they like money.

    Keep on telling yourself “it’s only music, the symbolism means nothing”

    Just make sure to be more tolerant of Neo-Nazi punk bands, and people with swastika tattoos, and if you ever see someone reading Mein Kampf, don’t look at them funny, because symbolism means nothing, and music and video and literature have absolutely no effect on anyone’s thoughts or beliefs.

  135. Greetings from Beirut, Lebanon! I agree with most things you put forward. Ever tried to investigate older music? For example, Elvis Presely movies, Beatles? Who knows, you might just find something.
    Keep up the good work.


    ^ An article by a ‘Nashville Gospel Music & Entertainment Examiner ‘.

    I’ve noticed that in the credits section of all their albums, each of them thanked God first.
    If you read and study the lyrics of all their songs carefully(not only Brick By Boring Brick), especially ones from All We Know is Falling, a number of their songs are faith-related.
    I’ve been following Paramore’s livejournal for a rather long time… Some of her posts are faith-related.

    One of Hayley Williams’ quotes:
    “”turn it off” is about wanting to rid yourself of faith. in hopes that it would make things less complicated. believing in Jesus is not easy. it’s not like you decide you want to believe and then everything just sort of comes together. but that’s the thing: life is hard with and without faith. the decision for me was made easy by the fact that… if life is going to be hard either way, then i’d rather have someone that i know will never leave me. that person for me is God. i believe because i can’t not believe. ”

    – hayley 10/29/09

    You can try to decipher subliminal messages from their photos, songs, album,videos, etc… There’s more than meets the eye. But discovering the truth of all truths is the really tricky part. You might think that you’ve discovered the truth but there’s more behind it than you know.

    Guess the only one who knows it all is God.

  137. That quote from Hayley doesn’t sound like somebody faking her faith. You people really need to stop throwing stones when you have no idea what you’re talking about. One of the worst things in the world is to question the religion/faith of another when you have never sat and spoken with them in person about it. Making grandiose assumptions based on ONE person’s interpretation is fucked up and in a way, is a form of mind control itself. Indeed it’s working. So many continue to say they won’t listen to this or that artist anymore all b/c of a stupid video review.

  138. To Mr. “I’ve noticed that in the credits section of all their albums, each of them thanked God first.”

    Yeah, until you find out who “god” really is!

  139. …Thought for the day before we all continue reading, blogging, searching, feuding..!

    “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life — in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.”

  140. The point of these articles are to inform. When we are armed with information we can decide either NOT to participate or TO participate by burying our heads in the sand and become WILLING slaves. Do not think that a mindset which once enslaved whole groups of people is a mindset which truly changes, for enslaving others is too vile a starting point within the psyche.

  141. good job vigilant, i would like u to do an analysis on the song starstruk by 3oh!3 ft katy perry if possible. thanks.

  142. The reason for fear propaganda is because OUR collective consciousness is the most powerful force we have. Without it (our consciousness) groups like Illuminati can not operate. All the conspiracies about these group were to show people that we HAVE (have being past tense) been manipulated into being miserable and Dependant. But guess what we are ALL smarter than that and these tactics aren’t working a whole we are moving into a higher vibrational consciousness , we are evolving and the need for control and misery is no longer relevant to us.
    Because of this change in thought and attitude these groups are loosing power…keep that in mind.

    So you deny that something might be learned from a negative example. I learned from the atrocities of the Nazis, Saddam Hussein etc. I absolutely prefer that these horrors would never have happened in the first place, but since they did become a horrific reality, we might as well learn something from our stupidity, corruption and selfishness. In the case of Saddam I even noticed how he was a marionette used by those claiming to be the defenders of freedom until he cut his strings and lost his usability. Yet another valuable lesson learned. This time regarding the true nature of hypocrisy and how it was cheered along by many so-called Christians, conveniently forgetting that Christ represented mercy and peace, not war, deceit and the quest for imperium.

    I do agree however that it is detestable to use these influences to selfishly manipulate the subconscious, which often seems defenseless against it. A good example is advertising, where people are subtly indoctrinated to have unrealistic needs just to keep them consuming. Other examples are the devious way in which politics manipulate the electorate or the way business controls the consumer by means of deceitfulness (continual lying to deceive for profit). Just watch the excellent 2003 Canadian documentary ‘ The Corporation’ to learn about a determining factor in our modern society, portrait as beneficial but with symptoms of psychopathy that would make a serial killer feel ashamed. That is a fine example of the terrible results from subconscious brainwashing.

    Wise words, or as Alexander Pope formulated it so masterly in his ‘An Essay on Criticism’:

    A little Learning is a dang’rous Thing;
    Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring:
    There shallow Draughts intoxicate the Brain,
    And drinking largely sobers us again.
    Fir’d at first Sight with what the Muse imparts,
    In fearless Youth we tempt the Heights of Arts,
    While from the bounded Level of our Mind,
    Short Views we take, nor see the lengths behind,
    But more advanc’d, behold with strange Surprize
    New, distant Scenes of endless Science rise!
    So pleas’d at first, the towring Alps we try,
    Mount o’er the Vales, and seem to tread the Sky;
    Th’ Eternal Snows appear already past,
    And the first Clouds and Mountains seem the last:
    But those attain’d, we tremble to survey
    The growing Labours of the lengthen’d Way,
    Th’ increasing Prospect tires our wandering Eyes,
    Hills peep o’er Hills, and Alps on Alps arise!

  145. more alice in wonderland connections …. Snoop Dog's new album title: "Malice in Wonderland"

  146. If Paramore were practising Christians would Hayley really be flashing the devil horns in the last picture posted on this site?

    I have spend the last decade working in the music industry both, behind the scenes and on the front lines and would like to assure you that many bands you see in the charts have their songs written for them, a creative team to create their ‘look’ , videos and album covers.

    Some artists can do it themselves but its unlikely for mainstream artists to have any control over their work. They are bound to rigid contracts with record companies that usually rip them off and make them work relentless hours to ‘pay back’ vast amounts of money used for promo and marketing. Sadly, the artists you are idolising on tv are really just being used as pawns to rake in a shit load of money for the record companies and you would be suprised at how many of the ‘hard core’ rockers and hip hoppers have to ask their managers for permission to take a piddle, let alone have artistic control over their own video.

    Massive artists like Madonna ( not a real singer anyway) use up to 8 co-writers per song. How do you know all these writers will write with integrity?

    Yes you can find good, honest and brilliantly beautiful music that isn’t tainted with any other intent other than getting your rocks off to a shit hard riff, but like the truth.. you will have to look for it and not have it spoon fed to you through a corrupt mainstream media.

    Don’t forget that record companies pay a fortune to have these songs played relentlessly throughout the day.. and in return get paid a fortune in royalties for each time its played.

  147. Dude, Come on know.
    That made no sense. Are you trying to be funny?
    Making fun of videos that actually have meaning?
    Paramore’s amazing. Along with many other bands.
    I hate the fact that people degrade things simply because their popular.

  148. @ gnome
    I highly doubt you work for the music industry when you have no clue about this band.
    Paramore went through 6 weeks with Pre-production of this album, without a producer, or a co-writter.
    Josh Farro (Guitar), Taylor York (Guitar), and Hayley Williams (Lead Vocals) wrote the whole album.
    You have no clue what your talking about. Stop ranting about your ignorance.

  149. i think there’s a good chance paramore has not been “taken” by the illuminati. maybe, just maybe, this song is a warning and an anthem against monarch mind control? hopefully cuz i like paramore…

  150. @ unknown

    Please do not put words in my mouth. I never once accused Paramore of not writing there own songs, because I personally don’t know who wrote this song. I did however, accuse Madonna of using co-writers and many other mainstream artists.
    You are obviously very protective of this band and want to defend them by letting us know they wrote the song. Thank you for clarifying this.
    I do however, think its naive to suggest that all people working in the music industry would know all about Paramore. I think it’s disturbing that you would attack me for pointing out that many.. (see? I stated many.. that means UNSPECIFIC)….artists do not have much control over their work and usually have to compromise with the record companies under lengthy and difficult to understand contracts who do have a great deal of control over the content and creative direction of the artist. I gather you are not old enough to remember Prince’s fight with Sony.
    I can only speak from my personal experience which you may find ‘ignorant’, but what I have noticed is a lot (unspecific) of artists just want to do their jobs, sing their songs and get paid for it. Its their job and like any job, they have managers and boss’ who make decisions for them. If you are stuck on a 2 year world tour performing and traveling every day, would you really have the time to design a video or watch for subtle symbolism?
    Sorry to break the news to you unknown.. but it looks to me like Paramore have been used as pawns.

  151. oh nooo i had a feeling paramore joined the dark side VC check out the lyrics to their song ignorance i have a feeling it is about denouncing their christian roots and God! Oh yeah great job as always V!

  152. ‘Kay’, ignorance was SPECIFICALLY written about the relationships within the band, as they were on the verge of a breatup, etc…
    Also, there’s a quote up there ^^ where Hayley also specifically refers her believe, mentioning Jesus and God, clearly she’s not into devil worship, the ‘devil sign’ she made with her hand has almost no meaning today, anyway, it’s purely a ‘rock music’ gesture, unless you’re implying that all rock music artists are worshiping the devil?
    It seems that this site is just purely against popular music with female singers….

  153. wow, great article!

    it seems to me that every person commenting that this article is ‘total bullshit’ is completely uneducated in the matter. DO THE RESEARCH instead of just talking out of your ass and maybe you’ll realize that these statements are based on facts. everything that’s being talked about in this article is dead on. Remember the ‘97% of adults who are unaware’ and completely oblivious this site is talking about? yeah, that’s you – educate yourself.

    and yeah, paramore USED to be a good ol ‘christian band’ (that i never liked anyway), but not anymore, that much is obvious.

  154. First of all, I actually am a 14 year old teenage girl who shops at Hot Topic and listens to rock.
    Your other articles make complete sense, however you’ve got this article completely wrong.
    Paramore is a christian band, they love God and have expressed it through their songs (ex. Hallelujah) and evan said it. Paramore is my favorite band and I will still listen to their music, despite of this article.
    Have you thought that the hand thing might just be a “cool thing” to do? Like, i’ve done that with my friends in pictures and photographs and stuff. I believe in God, and just because I do it doesn’t mean i’m like, satanic or anything. And, maybe they’re trying to introduce mind – control to the world because they’re unknown to it and it’s something they want the world to know about, like they’re warning them? Or, maybe they didn’t have any idea at all of what the “deep meaning” of everything in this world is about! Maybe they weren’t intending for this “mind control” to be the target of the music video, let alone the song. Feelings and emotions are let out through songs so maybe whoever in the band was writing the lyrics, they had emotion in them and felt like writing it? Think about this stuff before you start assuming please, because your “facts” or “opinions” may be totally, partially, or completely wrong.

  155. So you take 1 video, that is clearly based on other concepts of fairytales, etc, and decide, ‘oh, this band is definitely not Christian anymore?’ simply because it reuses concepts?
    Try attacking the source, it was clearly harmless and a ‘coincidence’, despite the fact you are all seeing what you want to, not what is really there.
    I read the entire article, I understand where the connections are made, but if you try hard enough, you can make these with almost anything, purely because its not perfectly normal and boring.

  156. @laura

    Actually, smart ass I’m not an adult. You’re the one making assumptions that I’m uneducated. Well clearly you’re the one who’s uneducated.

    Do you really know what this song means? Or you’re just gonna listen to this guy say what he thinks it means? I did my research unlike you.

    “I believe it’s important to stay young at heart. To have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current abilities or temporary means. However, there is a huge difference to me anyways. Between acknowledging your dreams and never living in reality. Some people are so scared of being boring – so insecure with who they might be – that they build up this huge lie, it’s all one big distraction. For not only the on – lookers but for their self. To me, it is a selfish way to live. A great means of defense. But selfish nonetheless. I’ve been hurt by this lifestyle. Hurt by people I barely know. I’ve even been guilty of living this way. It’s so common. I’m glad that I’ve found some words to finally speak up about it.”
    Hayley Williams – Brick By Boring Brick

    Paramore is a good christian band. They pray before every performance. They love God. Just check the Brand New Eyes CD, Riot! and All We Know is Falling and inside the lyrics book, at the end. Who do they thank? Exactly, they thank Jesus their Saviour.

    So I really wonder who’s the uneducated one?

  157. I’m sorry, but this is a big load of bull. If you took the time to actually see what the band has to say, maybe you wouldn’t be so ignorant. Or, if you even listened to some of the other songs. Personally, I fully believe in mind-control and the extrodinary things the human mind can do, but this? I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with you. Plus, not all of the Paramore fans are Twilight fan-girls. We’re not all immature. You’ve obviously been on, home of the fan-girls. I think the music video, lyrics, video, and CD cover do have meaning, and they stand for something. But not some sort of mind-control conspiracy.

  158. hmm, your research is correct, but i will correct you in some (if you dont mind)


    1st: Paramore is a Christian Band As They Say,i dont like paramore tho, but yeah they express their christian lives. but the thing is,Hollywood is filled with unknown people.

    The Part And Movements The Whole Music Video isnt made by paramore but the producers. dont you think?
    you would rarely see artist make their own music video and they do the actions and effects and storyline of the video. but as you see most of the bands are not like that, they are the ones being used to show the mind control message.. But Think About It. A Christian Band + A huge music company = (the total opposite of their belief) people would try to make them look bad to people who could easily understand the symbols. symbols are correct each and everyone is right in your research. but not everything in this world is evil and good.

  159. @Sibil

    “Yeah, until you find out who “god” really is!”

    Do you?

    I’m not going to be judgemental about this issue but if you take a look at the credits, the whole band thanked God, referring God as My Lord, Jesus Savior Christ, My Heavenly Father, etc.

    “Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficultes for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” Corinthians 10:12
    ^Once quoted by Hayley Williams

  160. I was never a Paramore fan, but what disturbs me is two things:
    Mind control is a serious issue whether it is MK Ultra or Monarch Programming or something on a smaller scale. Disassociation and mind control is real and people need a lot of patient therapists to undo and work through what they have undergone.
    Whether this music video and song is about boyfriends or mind control, it should not be able to be read so easily as a mind control video.
    Also, to the people reading VC’s articles, she or he (I don’t know which) is just pointing out how these songs and videos relate to this symbolism and relate to mind control. It is left up to the readers to draw conclusions from this and to ask why all of this is happening. VC is not pushing his/her personal beliefs down our throats, although I do wish she/he would share his/her theories with us as I am so compelled by all of this and it is hard to find good sources on the internet that aren’t written by people who think everything is a conspiracy.

  161. @ Antauge

    Again, we have someone defending evil for evil’s sake, defending it by saying “America is evil too so it must be okay” and “we learn from evil so it’s necessary”

    I am not a fan of the Iraq War or war in general. Even WW2, the so-called holy war against the Nazis, was a conflict largely manufactured and funded on both sides by the same evil occultic Western Illuminists. I am not a fan of George W Bush. I know that 9/11 was an inside job. I know that the Bush family is involved with Skull and Bones and Bohemian Grove, and Bush Sr whores himself out for speaking engagements for the Moonie Cult, and when W calls himself an Evangelical Christian that is nearly as hypocritical as it gets. And on that subject, all you people talking about how wonderfully Christian Paramore is should probably realize and think about how wonderfully Christian George W Bush is.

    Anybody can claim Jesus. Probably most of them are fakes. You will know them by their fruits. Maybe Paramore are true Christians. If that is true, I hope they wake up and get some Brand New Eyes to see how they are using negative symbolism in their music, and then stop it.

    All of these bad people and bad stuff in history and bad stuff in America doesn’t excuse anything. Doesn’t make it cool to put any negative messages in music. All past negativity doesn’t excuse any future negativity by anyone, at all, period. Sorry. If I murder you, your family and friends might learn a lesson about how bad it hurts to lose someone to murder, and maybe one of your family members would decide to devote his life to fighting crime, and maybe he would end up preventing 50 future murders. Would that excuse my action of murdering you?


  162. Wow. I saw all this articles today and I am amazed. When I first heard Boom Boom Pow on the radio, I felt so disturbed and I actually felt a strange presence. I am thirteen year old in Africa in a catholic school although I am a protestant. I told my friends about this weird feeling when I heard the song but they just laughed their heads off. Thank God for VC because now I know i am not just weird. I seriously feel uneasy when it comes to listening to some songs and now I know why. Beyonce was a shocker because she claims to be Christian. But again what Christian marries Jay z , wears reveling clothes. The amazing thing is that she covers it so well. In broken hearted girl she even wipes her tear but it forms a triangle on her eye.
    The Lord will come to judge the living and the dead, though. We just have to wait in faith.

  163. And all metal is Satan’s music. All the bands back in the 80s used back masking to control your minds. Not to be rude or anything, but this is just as ridiculous as those conspiracy theorists who said America blew up the World Trade Center, not the extremists driving the planes hitting it.

  164. Long time reader, first commenter, I thank you VC for all the research and work you invested in this website, I have learnt a lot from your articles.

    @ Chainmaker
    You are absolutely right! I can only applaud to your comments, they are so well said. God bless you!

    Greetings from Hungary!

  165. Great article!

    But my iPod randomly played an old song today that had sit up and listen more intensely…Madonna’s “Die Another Day”…then I watched the music video tonight and………wow.

    I’m sure if anyone has been reading VC’s articles then you will want to check out a little video by Madonna called “Die Another Day”………..might explain why she’s not as “filthy” anymore like she used to be…

  166. Which reminds me of a song called “Im A Slave 4 U” from Britney Spears…which is recognized as the peak of her career…mind control slave work…ring a bell?

    And her meltdown is when she attempted to free herself….

    I’m afraid that you misunderstood my comment. I’m not defending evil at all. I was only stating that, given the undeniable fact of its existence in this world, one may just as well learn from it how not to act, instead of shutting ones eyes and hoping for it to go away. Christ said the same when we were told: Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. (Mat. 10:16)

  168. shiv, if you ain't got the proof, then STFU. what you just said was slanderous as hell. you idiots can have your conspiracies but you better be careful with the accusations.

  169. Where there's smoke there's fire…

    I read a comment stating that Paramore's members are "Christian". I must point out that not everything claiming Christianity is really Christian. That's one of Satan's oldest tricks. Believe me, if you're claiming Christianity in vain or for deceptive purposes or feel you can indulge in a Burger King style "have it your way" type of Christianity—eventually you will be exposed. Paramore has just been exposed. Thanks, Vigilant!

  170. @ cmartine14:

    I just watched the music video to "Die Another Day". All I can say is WOW.

    I wonder if people who don't read this website get ticked off that there are so many music videos about the same thing….

  171. you are such a nut case. do u really think that Paramore of all bands would know about monarchy programming and other mind control things? i mean come on. i interpreted it as if we were children again. when your little kids, you're always imagining things like imaginary friends, dragons, princes, castles, etc. most of the lyrics are from other fairy tales. "the clock struck twelve" is from cinderella, "or the wolf's gonna blow it down" is from the three little pigs. i mean really, how are teenagers, like myself, supposed to know about mind control when they don't teach it in school? paramore is a young band and i highly doubt that they know anything about it either, like most people. you are over analyzing this way to much and it doesn't have to be. it's a great video and it's a new way of looking at paramore, instead of looking at them as a pop-punk-rock band, but instead looking at them as they can sing slow songs, pop songs, rock songs, and so much more. and not everything you read is true. keep that in mind people!!!

  172. Another point that needs to be made is to those who question the symbolism in the videos because the artist's themselves aren't directing them. Well, there are such things as spiritual conspiracies. When people are essentially Godless, they are open to serious manipulation by the forces of evil. Now, normally people who have mostly "good" operating in their lives are not going to willingly mingle with those who have mostly "evil" operating in their lives. This is how like minded people "find" each other. God sees to it that His people are afforded a certain protection that the Godless aren't entitled to. Therefore, you can have a director come in and believe he or she is having all these great , creative ideas for a video when they've actually been planted by Satan and his minions. People's Godlessness gives Satan spiritual permission to do this kind of stuff. The more Godless people Satan can push together, the more spectacularly satanic, occultic and evil the outcome. This is one reason why these award shows are jaw dropping. So many of the participants out front and behind the scenes are not living for God in any way shape or form. Hence, they are easy pawns for evil. Of course it's not just showbiz. Examples of this are found where ever people have blocked God out of their lives. Corporate America and schools are other good examples.

    I hope this makes sense. I'm explaining it as best I can right now. :)

  173. Why would you be so angry and hurt, is it because they are suposed to be ''christian band'' that makes it so impossible? OOH NO, IT CAN'T BE, CHRISTIANS DON'T DO SUCH THINGS, cmon girl, i saw what i saw, spoting someone on cocain isn't hard, they snif every second and can't stop talking and moving with Red poping eyes, if you don't want to beleive that's ok. I'm just seeing them as rock band that's all, I don't see any christians in them, praying before a concert dosen't mean anything, they are just giving themselfs a good image. All the worst criminals like Nixon or Bush are suposed to be christian, are they? Almost all serial killers and mass murderer were christians, just by saying I'm christian dosen't mean you are one or should i say a REAL one. They might be christians but does it stop them from having some fun before a show, they are kids with a shit load of money, that's what it is. They are gonna fall into the 7 capital sins just like all other celebrities.

  174. @JuliaAja

    I totally agree with you. I think if people don't actually know the meaning behind these reptitive videos then they must think every artist is a copycat…but for those who do find the meaning of the videos then you can truly appreciate the song, video and artist. It's amazing how people think that artists such as Madonna, Britney, Rihanna, Beyonce, (etc) don't have depth…when actually they're filled with secrets and deep meaning…and they make it open to us hiding nothing…we just have to know how to decipher it.

  175. Excellent article VC, I am on Chapter 8 of Fritz Springmeier's "The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave" and all the mind control symbolism is so evident in this video. Its just sad a lot of people don't even know that mind control exists and don't have the slightest idea that they are being controlled in a "nicer" way than Monarch programming by daily bombarment of media. And then they ask "why would they be showing us this if we dont even know what it means?" The answer is that they are numbing and dumbing us and making these things seem "normal" so that we won't be alarmed if we should come across it in our own lives. They are prepping us and we are falling for it. Wake up people.

  176. @ savv

    You are thinking with your natural mind, which is perfectly normal. However, there is a spiritual world that is much more powerful that is at work every single day just like the natural world. Please see my previous post.

    Satan's point in all this, I think, is to indoctrinate and desensitize. Look at how much the culture has coarsened over the years. Sure, good has had alot of triumphs, but evil sure has made it's presence known. Satan is trying to wear people down, bit by bit. And, it's working. Stay aware. Sometimes you have to ask yourself how many coincidences do you have to witness before you admit it's not a coincidence anymore? And if it's not a coincidence, then who and what is behind it and why?

  177. Anybody noticed that Media talks way more about Tiger Woods personnal problems then the 30,000 more troops going in Afghanistan?

  178. keleigh might justnbe mind controlled already………….all these analysis by vigilant a coincidence? wow funny how blind people can be when the truth is right before them

  179. shiv, i did not debate that they couldn't possibly be doing drugs b/c they claim they're christians. what i debated is you speaking about having first hand knowledge of the band doing it without showing the so-called proof you claimed to see it from. stating that they snort coke is another ball game entirely from just saying you see symbols in a video…it is a blatant accusation of their actual conduct and if you ain't got the goods then it's bullshit. Save that crap for

    "Bread and circuses" (or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is a metaphor for handouts and petty amusements that politicians use to gain popular support, instead of gaining it through sound policy. The phrase is invoked not only to criticize politicians, but also to criticize their supporters for giving up their civic duty.

    In modern usage, the phrase has become an adjective to deride an infantilized populace so defined by entertainment, instant self gratification, and personal pleasures that they no longer value civic virtues and the public life.

    Juvenal makes reference to the Roman practice of providing free wheat to Roman citizens as well as costly circus games and other forms of entertainment as a means of gaining political power through populism. The Annona (grain dole) was begun under the instigation of the popularis politician Gaius Sempronius Gracchus in 123 BC; it remained an object of political contention until it was taken under the control of the Roman emperors.

    Spanish intellectuals between the 19th and 20th centuries complained about the similar pan y toros ("bread and bullfights"). It appears similarly in Russian as хлеба и зрелищ ("bread and spectacle").

    Aldous Huxley used the phrase in Brave New World Revisited as an example of one of the ideas he used as a theme in Brave New World. (source: Wikipedia)

  181. Your right Anna, it's free accusation, and without proof. I will shut the fuck up and let you idolize them for what they are not.

    223.Antauge December 9th, 2009 2:30 pm

    Thanks Antauge for your knowledge.

  182. sorry but this is bollocks.

    I doubt very much that paramore wrote their album about 'mind control'

    the whole album is coming through the transitions of isolating your emotions and your loved ones around you, slowly repairing it and getting back to life as it should be around you.

    I'm a member of the Paramore official Fan Club and I'll have you know that at least 50% are over the age of 20 and are ALL laughing and dissing this site on 2 DIFFERENT THREADS.

    Leave paramore alone. You have no right.

  183. what an ignorant person you are, shiv. and how laughable for you to be pissed of at ME b/c you couldn't back it up. you people are unbelievable and even vile in your taste for blood.

    • To the Paramore Fan Club ppl coming here confused and outraged: I suggest you learn about MK Ultra and Monarch Programming before commenting. How can you say its "bullocks" if you don't even know what it is and how it manifests itself in pop culture? Google it, read a book about it whatever. I'm sorry but Paramore is now part of the "big business" of music industry. They are not in control of their imagery and they do not produce their videos. There are higher powers at stake in the music industry.

      There are people who work in the business who comment here and talk from experience, and they generally agree with my articles. Try putting your obvious bias aside and see the big picture of the music biz.

  184. how do you know who is from paramore's fan club and who isn't? how do you know someone really works within in the industry just b/c they say so? oh but since those people support your bullshit they are speaking from experience. you're showing your own bias there.

  185. to quote even though i shouldnt have to 'I will shut the fuck up and let you idolize them for what they are not.'

    it is what it is dude. i idolize no one but i will defend such an over the top accusation as the one you made b/c i felt that just went waaaay over the line. stick to the videos….that is til you come up with that incriminating video of the coke-fest.

  186. Is taking drugs over the top? I think Mind control and devil worshiping is way more over the top. Let's think straight for a second.

  187. I don't really agree with most of the stuff on your site. It is interesting to read, it does making me think a little bit, and yes I do agree that sometimes the media uses "mind control" to manipulate people, like maybe to buy products or make things sell. I don't believe that Paramore's music is disturbing, I'm not exactly a fan but I do think their music is good. Some of the people who read this end up thinking they can't listen to certain bands anymore, they kind of over do it and panic, and the next thing they know, they'll want to get rid of their radios and TVs. I'm not saying all, or saying that it's a load of garbage, you do have ways to back it up and I have a lot of respect for that and I appreciate it, but I just think that some people need to relax.

  188. Omg!!!! xD what is this??? Hahahahaha!!!!! I can't believe this, just read it for curiosity and… Well I love paramore, and don't think that anybody who knows their songs could think that they want to control the minds of their fans or something. Haven't you realized that 'brick by boring brick' is a beautiful music video that shows how Hayley (singer) loses her innocence because she realizes that she can't live a lie 'in a fairy tale". "oh so why does it has butterflies, mushrooms, fiction characters, castles, rabbits, magic doors and that blurred image?"…. I'd like anyone to mention a fairy tale that doesn't have any of that… This is ridiculous. They are a great band that touches the hearts of their fans with their deep lyrics and music quality. I wonder why the little girl that escaped from the mind control of that sadist with the axe wanted him to love her… She wants to be under the mind control again? Does she really wants to go back to the "fairy tale" knowing that her real life is tragic? (listen to the second voice while the last chorus, that can only apply to a love story…)

    I know that many of the people who had read the article may think "oh, this is just a crazy fan who protects the image of this band like any other blind fan may do" but I'd like to be reasonable, so, vigilant, go check the band facts, the personality of all it's members and download one or two of their songs, randomly or just download the ones with a "suspicious title", after you; or any of the people who believes what this article says, had done that; tell me that this is true, that the band wants to control the minds of their defenseless fans, If you do, I will believe it, I will still like the band, but knowing that they use this evil symbols.

    Honestly, What I ask for is not a competition or some kind of face of with me; I want to know the truth about my favorite band.

    I hope that you read my post.

    Paramore fan club member "VenezuelanFan"

    Ahhh, also… sorry about the spelling and redaction.

  189. also xD your followers say "ok, paramore is not guilty, they don´t produce their videos", but you make almost all your analysis based on the lyrics of this song xD omg I really can´t stop laughting xD!!!!

    ok, I won´t read alll this comments, but… paramore using evil symbols? being evil? "satan`s job"???? the illuminaty?????

  190. For those who think Paramore is a sweet gentle christian band, the are smoking weed and snifin cocain by the way, i saw them before a show they were completly fucked up. I’ll try to find the link. It was on MusiquePlus, Quebec tv channel.

  191. Satanist Anton LaVey, author of The Satanic Bible and founder of the First Church of Satan, writes fantasy is a "magic weapon" in Satanism.

    "Fantasy plays an important role in any religious curriculum, for the subjective mind is less discriminating about the quality of its food than it is about the taste. . . Thus, fantasy is utilized as a magic weapon [in Satanism]. . . The Satanist maintains a storehouse of avowed fantasy gathered from all cultures and from all ages."

    (Anton Szandor LaVey, The Satanic Rituals, p. 15, 27)

    "The main thing is to get the kids. . . nail you when you’re young and brainwash you, then they’ve got you for the rest of your life."

    George Harrison, Beatles, (Loose Talk, Rolling Stone Magazine, p. 70)

  192. Some people say that this video is just a collection of fairy tales. They overlook the fact that these tales themselves were often used as a vehicle for a more hidden message. A good example is the famous fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood about a young girl and a big bad wolf. As can be seen, there are, besides the overt warning about talking to strangers, many interpretations of the classic fairy tale, many of them sexual.

    Wolf attacks: The fable was likely based on genuine risk of wolf attacks at the time. Wolves were in fact dangerous predators, and fables served as a valid warning not to enter forests where wolves were known to live, and to be on the look out for such. Both wolves and wilderness were treated as enemies of humanity in that region and time.

    Natural cycles: Folklorists and cultural anthropologists saw Little Red Riding Hood in terms of solar myths and other naturally-occurring cycles. Her red hood could represent the bright sun which is ultimately swallowed by the terrible night (the wolf), and the variations in which she is cut out of the wolf's belly represent by it the dawn. In this interpretation, there is a connection between the wolf of this tale and Skoll, the wolf in Norse myth that will swallow the sun at Ragnarök.

    Ritual: The tale has been interpreted as a puberty ritual, stemming from a prehistorical origin. The girl, leaving home, enters a liminal state and by going through the acts of the tale, is transformed into an adult woman by the act of coming out of the wolf's belly.

    Rebirth: Motif in terms of classic Freudian analysis, that shows how fairy tales educate, support, and liberate the emotions of children. The motif of the huntsman cutting open the wolf, he interpreted as a "rebirth"; the girl who foolishly listened to the wolf has been reborn as a new person.

    Prostitution: One of the more common interpretations refers to a classic warning against becoming a "working girl." The red cloak was also a classic signal of a prostitute in 17th century France. A Colombian charity recently used this theme in a poster campaign that showed various fairy tale characters reduced to child labor, including Red Riding Hood as a child prostitute.

    Sexual awakening: A parable of sexual maturity. In this interpretation, the red cloak symbolizes the blood of the menstrual cycle, braving the "dark forest" of womanhood. Or the cloak could symbolize the hymen (earlier versions of the tale generally do not state that the cloak is red—the word "red" in the title may refer to the girl's hair color or a nickname). In this case, the wolf threatens the girl's virginity. The anthropomorphic wolf symbolizes a man, who could be a lover, seducer or sexual predator. This differs from the ritual explanation in that the entry into adulthood is biologically, not socially, determined.

    Norse myth: The story Þrymskviða from the Poetic Edda mirrors some elements of Red Riding Hood. Loki's explanations for "Freya's" (actually Thor's disguising as Freya) strange behavior mirror the wolf's explanations for his strange appearance.

  193. Everybody there is hope there someone called GOD when you see these things in place it only shows that he is coming soon so cling close to him and he WILL protect u so dont be sacred. Praise God that he is coming soon and all of this will come to any end so read ur BIBLE stay loyal to God he will protect u and bless by more than u can imagine

  194. People wake up just because this sound crazy its true Satan works in ways just to question him. This is possible and is so real. Why wouldn't Satan do this he doesn't love any of us and want the WORSE for us. Its seems fine because society has changed in his favor people are more expecting to this. Think about it if the Devil was in charge of music in heaven why wouldn't he be in charge of music down here and just because u THINK u know there personalities doesn't mean ur there with them 24/7 when u do something against God u are a rebel just as Satan. God only wants the best and knows the best for everyone so please pray and pick up a Bible.

  195. :-( why do you post something from wikipedia? defend what you think or believe with your own words!

    Also… your example is not a fairy tale that appears on the video in discussion…

    vigilant… you are brilliant indeed., you know a lot about "secret societies, mystery religions, esoteric sciences and ancient civilizations" but you have to learn how to make your conclusions, because it doesn’t matter how much do you know about this, you base your arguments on coincidences, if I make up a story, if I draw something, or if I say something random right now, you could easily find it’s symbolic perspective and may send the inquisitors for me… you have to speak about possibilities and coincidences, because you can’t make any real and concrete affirmation on this matter

    again, sorry about my vocabulary, spelling and redaction, english is not my mother tongue

  196. pedro,

    vigilant does NOT give you conclusions. he/she gives you hints, details and some knowledge.

    it's up to the reader to come to the final idea, like everything else in life…

    once you realize that, this site becomes more fruitful.

  197. xD I really can`t stop laughting, honestly I am not enough serious or mature to show my point of view and… well xD I don`t even know why I write this kind of things when I can just laugh alone xDDD

    "Paramore’s latest album is called “Brand New Eyes”, which has obvious mind control/Illuminati connotations"

    "the song describes, in chilling detail, the reality of a mind control slave"

    "The video manages to assemble all of the symbolism usually associated with Monarch Programming in about 3 minutes, leaving no doubt concerning the meaning of the song."

    "Right from the start of the video, the subject matter of the song is made very clear"

    "this, of course, symbolizes the fact that she is a Monarch slave."

    I can still find a LOT of affirmations, conclusions (not "hints" at all)

    you can tell me that this conclusions are true or false, but you can`t deny that they are conclusions… no hints

    what final idea?? what do I have to think about to get myself a conclusion?.. the answer is that I don`t have to think at all… vigilant already made the conclusions… (great job by the way)

    xD sorry about the spelling and the redaction again…

  198. ^ Everyone is not going to come to the same conclusion. That appears to be the real problem. People are being attacked when they draw a conclusion that goes against the conspiracy theories. Even the author has attacked those who continue to voice concern over the broad stroke with which he paints the entertainment/music industry which pretty much debunks that idea of his intentions being for everyone to 'draw their own conclusion'. He wants you to draw the same conclusion he has come up with. I don't see the religious zealots getting any personal attention from Mr. Vig, because they are on closer to his side than opposing it. One thing is for certain, there is an agenda to achieve mass mind control and websites such as this contribute to it, not heed it.

  199. xD this is like some kind of english test of primary school xD!!!

    VIGILANT gives you a sentence which you have to pair with the meaning… something like

    “The video manages to assemble all of the

    symbolism usually associated with Monarch

    Programming in about 3 minutes,

    leaving no doubt concerning the meaning of the song.” ——————–> Monarch Programming

    the bad part is that there`s only one right answer…

  200. Pedro, I think I understand what you're trying to say. The matter is with the author's choice of wording and writing style. He is not simply holding up a mirror, he is telling his audience that these 'hints' are reality, that they are facts. The language does not reflect that which leaves it open to the audiences interpretation. As you said, the tone is one of affirmation. Just as an example, he affirms the meaning behind song lyrics, even though he cannot affirm that which lied within the mind of the song-writer at the time it was composed. One minute, there are 'handlers' behind the artist and that is given as explanation for affirming the song lyrics to be based in hypnotic mind control schemes. But then when it is confirmed that the song writer was the artist him/herself, it is suddenly affirmed that the artist has been manipulated to write the song, which goes right back to claiming to know the mind of another. I think maybe an english course focusing on tone and perspective would do the author some good.

  201. ok. pedro — saturn in libra and we are bound to come to face to face with some teachings..

    here's an an advice.. leave the "conclusions" out of this !

    then you're alone with the hints and the knowledge.

    let's all try to connect the dots. not about a stupid video but about everything else that surrounds us.

    everything else means LIFE in my book.

  202. sorry for bothering you, I am just a person… and I don`t have the language skill that any of you have…

    Honestly, I got bored, just wanted to see how much could I contradic you… because I knew that I couldn`t change the way that almost 1000 people think ABOUT PARAMORE!!!!

    I liked a lot the first part of what "anonymous" wrote… I don`t think that hayley nor josh had been manipulated to write this nor any of their songs.

    "d"… I am very interested about this page, the symbolism and everything behind the industries…. but…

    I AM NOT SAYING THAT THIS IS FAKE!!!! I`m saying that vigilant can´t affirm that PARAMORE (and only paramore) has been manipulated by satan nor the iluminatty!!!!

  203. right now I have to finish a project for school (yes, I am a person behind a screen) so I will have to leave this forum, I`d like you to know that I had a good time talking to you and also I recommend you to listen to paramore, they rock!! xD

    I suggest vigilant to speak more about probabilities and coincidenses and less about conclusions and affirmations

  204. Well, according to 'd' we shall pay no attention to those conclusions/affirmations behind the curtain….hehe. Although, if your belief system already follows along a similar path, you will pay even more attention to the affirmations and then——maybe thank the person for concluding your theories. Sound familiar? If your belief system is not of a similar thread, the affirmations will appear, well let's just say differently, hence many questions will arise from those people. From what I've been reading, such questions are not very welcome here, often met with shrewd or condescending "answers". It's all quite fascinating, a study of sorts, of human psychology and behavior. I know the author says he wants us to study. But it seems, for those who have done just so, and drawn a different analysis from his own, are met with disdain. That clouds what his purpose really is. More questions then. I think there are a lot of intentions here—–and a lot more UN-intended consequences. Interesting nonetheless.

    • I am convinced this video is about Monarch Programming so I would be intellectually dishonest to leave this "open for interpretation". Whether you accept my interpretation or not, thats your choice but please dont blame me to be convinced of something.

  205. There is only one reality, only one true Truth about reality.

    Do you have the Truth?

    Or are you denying the truth, ignoring the evidence, all the strange "coincidences", because you are scared of the truth, because you don't want to accept the truth, maybe down deep you hate implications, the ramifications, the consequences, of the truth?

  206. Thanks again, Vig!!

    In response to Claire's "What can I listen to…?"

    SUPPORT INDIE BANDS!!! (Not the big label promoted, so-called indie bands but TRUE, INDEPENDENT, grassroots indie-label bands.)

    They have not been recruited by the illuminati and stand for independence from the status quo!!!

    check out:

    Point Juncture, WA


  207. hmmm… before I said that if you had concrete evidence that proves that paramore is being manipulated by the illuminatty or satan (or that paramore itself is evil) I would completely accept it…

    I am just saying that it doesn`t matter how much knowledge or experience about "secret societies, mystery religions, esoteric sciences and ancient civilizations" you have, you can`t affirm nor conclude irrefutably that paramore is being manipulated by the Iluminatty… you can only talk about PROBABILITIES AND COINCIDENCES!!!

    neither you nor I have the truth…

    I left this forum one hour ago leaving a conclusion, my final suggestion for vigilant, and I see that, with that comment that he posted before, he may had listened to me, so, there is no point on writing again what I wrote before, if any of you wants to criticize me, do it with fundaments, read what I wrote and I may have another "fruitful" conversation

  208. Great article VG,

    The Illuminati are clever, they know that the majority of people wont believe the hype, they dont even need to monitor anything, beause the celebrities are doing it for them.

    Rihanna is shooting a new video clip, shes wearing mickey mouse ears and in a battlefield with a golden gun. what the hell is up with the guns in video clips? is this a way to subconsciously get used to the presense of guns

    rihanna writes a song about russian roulette, video phone has beyonce has toy guns all the clip. And the chorus line is almost hynoticaly made in her tone and the song is about a product "VIDEO PHONE" there obviously must be a decline in videophones or something for this shit to be a song.

    there is obviously something fishy going on. AND I DONT LIKE FISH lol


  209. Haha.

    Has ANY of their songs or lyrics ever have cursing in it? NO.

    Have they ever worn very revealing clothing or vulgar clothing? NO.

    How would you know if they're not true Christians? You can't answer that question because YOU'RE NOT PARAMORE! Quit accusating if the facts aren't CLEARLY there.

    Just because they're famous, doesn't mean that they're automatically bad people.

    Oh, and did you know that the band Paramore (or any band/singer for that matter) doesn't get to pick how their music videos go? The producer/company picks it, not them!

    Go bug some other lame singer/rapper/band and get off of Paramore's butts.

  210. if you are a fan of paramore, and u keep defending them, dont you think you need to really look inside you and see how you really are scared of the TRUTH……keep being blind and watch yourself being brainwashed…..Dont say you were not told!

  211. i think it's just some kind of MARKETING STRATEGY. The song being interesting, somewhat mysterious, intriguing – makes me/you/them want to hear the song.

  212. Those who are disagreeing with VC, you have every right to do so, but perhaps you should educate yourselves first.

    If you read VC's "About Vigilant" page, he's just a normal guy (i think) who has studied this subject matter for many years. I have been educating myself on these matters since watching "The Arrivals" about 3 months ago. Start by watching that, you will see through "brand new eyes" (not Paramore's) and then research. If you don't believe that mind control exists, google MK-Ultra, Cathy O'Brien, Cisco Wheeler, Candy Jones, Truddi Chase to name but a few. Mind control exists in our everyday lives. We need to be aware of it to be able to resist it. Don't just say that there is no such thing because it sounds so far fetched. Fact is stranger than fiction and the devil would have us believe that everything is hunky dory while he executes his plans…

  213. in·ter·pre·ta·tion (n-tûrpr-tshn)


    1. The act or process of interpreting.

    2. A result of interpreting.


    a. An explanation or conceptualization by a critic of a work of literature, painting, music, or other art form; an exegesis.

    b. A performer's distinctive personal version of a song, dance, piece of music, or role; a rendering.

  214. That's true.

    Some people think that without evil governments controlling us, we will take over and be evil.

    Why?? That only says alot about those who believe this! The governments are at war with peace,

    freedom, health… and Love itself – us!

  215. Why do we let them "inspire" us to think that we are worthless, evil perverts just like them?

    Que bono?… Who profits?

  216. agree at #76. it is clearly stated by the site creator that this is not a christian website. this is a site where he deliberately explain things that "modern man" doesn't aware of. We shouldn't ask VC what should we do. we should do our own research and decide what is the right thing to do later on. Honestly I'm skeptic which one should I listen because it's quite obvious that most of the popular music now promotes, sex, crime blah blah and that is something I'm scared of.

    Keep 'em coming VC! thanks for sharing useful info!

  217. Advocate4Christ on

    I cannot agree with you on this one Vigilant. Forgive me if I repeat something that was already said for I didn't read all the comments. I do see where you're coming from but I believe your initial thoughts about them warning people are true. Yes the imagery and symbolism of occults are present in the video but I believe they are there as a warning. If you really pay attention to the words it's almost like they're trying to save the mind control slave more than anything. Think about some of the lyrics:

    Why would they want to bury the castle (in burial you can't see what's under the dirt) unless they were trying to cover the trigger so it would no longer be seen and therefore can't be used against her?

    Why would they tell her keep her feet on the ground when her head's in the clouds? They are warning her to stay grounded even when her silly thoughts and dreams take her to a far away place. It's like saying don't let your fantasies take you too far away from reality. Even in the madness keep a level head.

    They tell her make sure she builds her house brick by BORING brick….compared to the fantasy world she's created for herself any regular brick would be boring, especially in contrast to the magnificent castle she created in her mind. If she continues to create buildings that equally or greatly compare to the ones in her mind then she will be making no progress or, in other words, the wolf will be able to blow it down.

    Don't get me wrong you make excellent points but even some of your explanations support the fact that they aren't supporting the Illuminati but are rather denouncing mind control. You say they use the symbolism in the video but the girl ends up running away from it all in the end. I even believe the burial is to say that naive, childish, part of her is dead and a more adult Hayley can take over her life now. Now she sees things for what they really are and she can call them out as she sees them with her "brand new eyes."

    This is not to diss you in any way. I enjoy reading your articles and you have a real knack for spotting symbolism in what seems to be the "normal" in our country, music, and world but I see this more as a denouncement. I could be wrong but that's just my interpretation of the lyrics and video. Still keep the articles coming….they're very informative and interesting.

    • Advocate4Christ – If the song denounces mind control or not is pretty much a matter of interpretation, but the fact remains: it is most likely ABOUT mind control. And that is the main issue here. The fact that it is being portrayed in numerous videos (this article is ultimately not about Paramore but about the music industry as a whole) is something worth analyzing. I'm having trouble picturing the fact that Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Paramore and Beyonce have all decided to denounce an issue as secretive and occult as mind control. They're all part of huge record companies and have huge teams take care of their promotion, image, videos, etc. Why would they all "take a stand" against such an issue. It just doesnt make sense.

      What would be more plausible is the theory of "externalization of the method" as described by many researchers of occult history. The theory stipulates that revealing to the public an occult secret (which is almost always received with indifference, apathy and, ultimately, consent), gives the practitioners all the more powers. There has been a great deal of "revealing" these past years: public is being initiated to all sorts of hidden secrets with absolutely no reaction. Who do you think wins in all of this?

  218. @ Nicole AMM

    It's a sad state of affairs when all one needs to do to pass themselves off as Christian is cover their junk and curb the public profanity. WOW. Seriously? Nicole, I'm afraid it takes alot more effort than that beginning with confessing and believing with all your heart that Jesus is the Christ (savior). Not to mention, the most important impact of being a true Christian happens on the inside–your heart and your mind. Sure, it may affect outward things like how you dress, but like I implied earlier, you really don't need Jesus for that.

  219. erm,

    hayley covers her eye and BOOM, she's suddenly in a cult?

    who's next? westlife?

    nowdays, people believe every band/singer is in a cult.

    Paramore are one of the best bands ever.

    they dont even drink!

    plus, i like how this article has totally forgot to mention their christians.

    Many things are build ¨Brick by Boring Brick¨, like cities, towers whose top is in the heavens or even pyramids…

  221. Let me also say that many of the naysayers on here are clearly uneducated about history, religion (all varieties), the occult, secret societies, theosophy, esoteric studies, Luciferianism/Satanism, the new age movement, etc. If you don't know anything about any of this stuff, how can you dismiss Vigilant's analysis out of hand? You don't have to agree with every syllable he writes to draw the conclusion that he's onto something. My people perish for a lack of knowledge. Don't let this happen to you. Educate yourself. Study and research. Don't be lazy brained. Don't accept everything that's being shoved down your throat. THINK!

  222. Advocate4Christ on

    Sorry for the misunderstanding and thank you for the clarification. I didn't know you were just saying that it is about mind control point blank. I know you brought up the possibility of the group being sucked into the Illuminati and I was kind of thrown off by that comment. I wasn't even talking about Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Beyonce because they are on something totally different. They aren't in any way denouncing anything. I believe they are being used by the Illuminati hence the pop super stardom and high influence over not just the young people or this country but the world.

    And yes hiding things in plain view is one of the best ways to get people to deny the existence of something because it's too obvious and more often than not we believe that if something is too obvious or too simple then it must not be that big of a deal. Unfortunately this is not true but it is what it is. And yes it does make it easier for the practitioners to spread their influences and ideas more freely and easily at a much faster rate. However, I wasn't referring to any of this. I was simply giving my interpretation of the video and song and negating something I thought you said which was that Paramore could possibly be apart of the Illuminati's plan.

  223. Paramore and i liked them…love this article more though…keep them coming Vigilant Citizen expose them!!


  225. I agree with team jesus, Advocate4Christ and Vigilant cit. on many points.

    One of the 'downsides' of calling yourself a Christian nowadays, is that peopl ebelive you are some inbred, Bible thumping, no good hick.

    I believe and have faith in Jesus Christ, but UI also believe in evolution and that science is compatible with God.

    Paramore is a YOUNG band, whose members were born into a system well into place with all the mass media promoting shallow and hollow values and ideas.l I would not be surprised if they are just pawns in the scheme of things.

    So, all you 'Twilight'/Perez /Paramor fans can just go away if you can't deal with the idea that this band is just a tool.


  227. This article is completely ridiculous. It was nice for a good laugh though. Mind control? Really? They are just music videos. Don't look so far into them.

  228. Mr. Less Obvious on

    MR.OBVIOUS December 10th, 2009 1:29 pm


    Aren‘t we generalizing a bit. It is quite disheartening to see people climb in the curtains and denounce everything where a black-white checkerboard pattern or a pyramid (upside down or not) is shown. These symbols were already in use long, long before the Masonic founding-fathers or the Bavarian Illuminati existed. Maybe 200-300 years is ancient history in the U.S., but in the rest of the world it is more like yesterday.

    Just think for yourselves. That‘s what that hump of meat on our shoulders is meant for.

  229. Eh, dude, nice discription of Paramores video, and well done, but not a word of it is true.

    The song is simply about people who live in a make believe world, a world

    of their own, where they ignore real life.

    This 'fairytale' world acts as a shield against real life, but eventually,

    you have to come back to reality.

    And for all you 'fans' who actually believe Paramore would try to 'control your mind',

    all i have to say is ha.ha.ha.

  230. I think it's worth noting that rarely do artists have much control over their music videos. I don't know the details of Paramore's video production, so I won't make the claim that they had nothing to do with this video. But I think the conclusion that she's adopted a one-eye metaphor to reference mind control is unfounded. She just seems like an annoying hipster who grew up spending her time perfecting her Myspace profile pictures.

    Butterflies are a common artistic device, and I don't know if it's a direct reference to Monarch Programming. The human brain has a natural tendency to find patterns and connections in data (called apophenia), and I feel like this analysis of the music industry is simply a case of apophenia. You'll find what you're looking for because that's how the brain processes information.

  231. damn……thats a great analysis and all. but paramore?? one of the few bands that i enjoyed listening to…

  232. …LIKE CLAIRE SAID "i dont know wtf to listen to it’s ever since i’ve visited this website I find myself changing the station when i hear jay-z, rihana, kanye west, beyonce, and lady gaga it’s like nothing sacred so wtf am I suppose to listen to now." …I AM TOTALLY FREAKED OUT ABOUT EVERYTHING REGARDING THE INDUSTRY AND THE PATHS TAKEN TO GET FAME & FORTUNE …OF COURSE YOU WOULDN'T MIND PUSHING AN AGENDA IF NO ONE CAN TELL WHAT AGENDA YOU ARE PUSHING …YOU HAVE NOTHIGN TO LOSE …RIGHT?! SMH

  233. Wow. That's just ridiculous 😀 😀 😀

    Guys, you sound like a bunch of fanatics. 'Take the veil of people's eyes…' Ahahaha…

    But hey. I actually found a very good article that proves that Lady Gaga is the tooth fairy! Beware guys! This ruthless woman will come and take your teeth away!

    Read here:

    You can find symbolism behind pretty much EVERYTHING if you intentionally look for it, but it doesn't mean that it's actually there.

  234. Paramore has a lot of fans, apparently. I'd never heard of them until earlier this year. But anyway…

    Ok, rephrasing this one more time: If you're looking at all of this with your natural eyes and not your spiritual eyes, then you're only getting half the story. If you're looking at all of this as a pop culture junkie and not as one who is well versed in and has studied the topics being referenced here, then you're only getting half the story.

    A half told story is useless.

  235. Christianity=Monotheism

    Monotheism=Mind Control

    It's the conspiracy that led to the dark middle ages in Europe (which was originally a pagan continent). Europe has in the last half century become illuminated while Americans (especially Latin America) are still struggling with the ravages of the Church and the superstitions and fear that it uses to control people.

    The organizations that seek to control you are the ones that ask for your faith or belief, without supplying you with a rational explanation. Illumination is rationality and is the path to clarity and will not ask for blind belief or faith… its very telling that monotheists like Christians, Jews and Muslims are waging an attack on Western Occult Traditions which seek only to illuminate and get out of the cycle of wars, slavery and bigotry. These make up the three headed monster which cause wars and havock and enslave you.

    Despite these, may illumination proliferate and prevail.

  236. Mr. Less Obvious on

    @Gabriel T. Hammond December 10th, 2009 5:49 pm

    Faith is a necessity when something is beyond understanding and comprehension. Itś more than pride to believe to know it all, it is foolishness. Wisdom is knowing that you don’t know anything.

  237. as team jesus stated, "Let me also say that many of the naysayers on here are clearly uneducated about history, religion (all varieties), the occult, secret societies, theosophy, esoteric studies, Luciferianism/Satanism, the new age movement, etc. If you don’t know anything about any of this stuff, how can you dismiss Vigilant’s analysis out of hand?

Study and research. Don’t be lazy brained. Don’t accept everything that’s being shoved down your throat. THINK!"

    This is not a personal attack, however many who have commented on this article and accused any support for the band as being "uneducated" freely admit that have no prior knowledge of Paramore, their history and background etc. Does this not seem a bit completely one sided, bias and a little bit contradictory or is that just me ? Educate yourself by looking into the band itself before drawing any conclusions, and using ALL evidence before forming any conclusions.

  238. You've got this band all wrong. They are genuinely nice, caring people, and would definetly not use "mind-control" on any of their projects. They are a band that do it just for the fans, and to get their music out there.

  239. And to be honest, i could care less about mind control. Your view on things is pretty over analyzed and wrong, but you're a good writer, you just need to learn how not to take things a little too far.

  240. Vigilant never claimed that Hayley and Co. are trying to brainwash their fans. It's the shady figures behind the scenes that are using pop culture to control how this generation views the world. Research the occult symbolism and it's plain to see.

  241. if any of you people actually think that paramore is using mind control youre insane. they are Christian people, and the song only has one meaning: facing your problems and burying a fake world that you made to make you happy.

    all of this is coincidence.

  242. @ Gabriel T Hammond

    The people running things in the world are all Western occultic Illuminists, Interestingly enough, even though the most powerful people in the world, the political and economic leaders of the world, are all into various "illuminated" occult groups, for some reason, (this is really odd, perhaps you could explain it to me) for some odd reason, the world is still a pretty nasty place. You know, wars, poverty, disease and all that. Come to think of it, it seems that these very same Western occultists are actually PERPETRATING the wars and hatred and economic inequalities, from their positions as the kings of the earth.

    And throughout history, the never-ending cycles of war, poverty, disease and all that, the ELITES who run the show have nearly ALWAYS been PAGAN OCCULTISTS. Pagans who often offered worship to gods of War.

    You have it all twisted around, blaming the problems of the world on monotheism. The problems of the world have to do with the EVIL SIDE OF HUMAN NATURE. And somehow you believe that the elite occultists who constantly praise the idea of DUALITY in their symbolism (Freemason checkerboard floors, logo for Rocawear X cologne) are going to remove evil from the world? Their worship of duality is a worship of the acceptance of Evil as equal to Good and necessary to the "Balance" (Yeah that idea of duality in Star Wars, bringing balance to the force, that's occult garbage as well.) They preach that the LEFT HAND PATH is necessary to assert your own GODHOOD, and how? By "rising above morality", creating your own rules AKA breaking all of God's moral rules.

    And that is why you have evil elite occultists doing all kinds of evil stuff like running mind control programs, and enacting false flag terror attacks, and cooking up horrible diseases in bio-weapons labs, because they have a great excuse for it, DUALITY.

    Please wake up Gabe. That Tom Hanks movie brainwashed you pretty well. That was the point of it.

  243. Oh and Gabe, your wonderfully "illuminated" secular liberal humanist Europe? It is going the way of the dinosaur. The selfish secular humanist white Europeans do not reproduce. The secular whites are literally going extinct, because they only have one child if they have any children at all. They have too much fun being "free" from that "nasty" monotheistic morality to be saddled down with the responsibility of raising children.

    Meanwhile the the Muslims of Europe are having 8 kids. Europe will be MAJORITY Muslim, within our lifetimes. So much for your "triumph" of IRRATIONAL secular humanism.

    This is perhaps the hardest truth for the secular liberal to swallow. A very inconvenient truth.

  244. what if they are against it?..i mean what if paramore is against all of this shit and that is what they are trying to tell in their video,.. that is why they buried the girl? or the one eye symbolism,.. it is ONE EYE right? but still you can see all their eyes.. and the butterfly with its wings cut off.. what if they are against the occult?.. even me, i cannot believe that they are a part of this, but maybe there is something up with what they are doing.. am i right? any comments?

  245. Regarding Gabriel's comment. This is how I read it and this is also what I believe. Religion is part of the plan. Organized religion that is. It may not have been started under false-hood, however nearly all organized religion has been hijacked by the elite to further their agenda. One thing they can always count on to create and propel divisiveness among the people, among the sheeple, is differences of opinion on why we're here and who created us. We have been derailed from ever finding out our true nature, and our true origins. The books that most consider holy are tools of the elite to keep you misinformed and combative against your brothers and sisters while they succeed at attaining world rule. Faith in a higher power does not require faith in a text book or any other man-made artifact. Some of us know this, but the majority have been conditioned to think the opposite. A huge part of WAKING UP requires breaking free of ALL conditioning and that includes the indoctrination of religion.

    Start finding out about your true origins. You can start here –

  246. I always stated that in my opinion the beleivers and naysayers make good points. I am a beleiver but over time it's like OK it's old now. I think this is something that is true, but it's up to you to make it not true. A few months ago I was my favorite artist stalker, but after all the harsh accusations it allowed my to reflect and pull together. We all have read in the Bible that people like VC,forrunner etc will lead you astray, but due to the world we live in ,and how we all are eyes wide shut. You have to appreciate people with intentions to help. Without such people weather they are on the illumanti side or whatever, I have to say I have came a long way with myself. This is not about VC, Jay-Z, Paramore, it's about "you". I can't be mad at people who do not beleive. You don't know where they are at in their life. Like I stated this is something I think you can make to not be true within yourself. As of today it's bolony to me. Only because I have gotten it together. So mabey to a strong person it's BS, but you have to show respect to the people who haven't made it. This whole ordeal is a process. Fear, acceptance, solution and the solution is fixing yourself. To make it go away.

  247. So talking about 'art' copying life check out The Doll House on whatever T.V. station it is…

    everything about Monarch programming is there except they substitute trauma for brain mutilation and computer programming…everything including the use of these dolls as political candidates, sex slaves and the use of fluffy trigger words, e.g. 'puppy' for assassins, way too much of a coincidence!



  250. Paramore’s latest album is called “Brand New Eyes”, which has obvious mind control/Illuminati connotations. The cover features a pinned butterfly with its wings separated from its body…symbolic indeed

    Seriously, this proves that you know NOTHING about this band. If you did, you would now exactly on what that title is based on. This band has had many personal problems in the past, leading almost to a break-up. They have found their way too overcome their problems with each other and now look at each other with 'brand new eyes.' The entire album reflects how they felt in the past (Careful, Ignorance, Playing God) to how they feel about each other now (Looking Up, Where The Lines Overlap). This band has released two albums before, this is their third and just because of one out of eleven songs on this album, they are trying to mind-control people? I think the person who is trying to control the minds of other people is you, by shoving this crap into their heads.

    Deepen yourself in the band and their history before you make a judgement on what they are about. I suggest you look the song up at and see what people (who actually know things about the band) have to say about the song and the meaning behind it.

    But as Seara says, what the hell do we know, where just mind-controlled by a band who sings about their personal problems.

  251. Well VC, it seems you can't write on any ''christian band''. People loses there heads when you're writing against artists with the same beleif and religion as them. THAT is pathetic.

  252. Off topic: Have any of you seen the Delta Faucets commercial where at the end of the ad the little boy make the pyramid symbol with his hands and hold it up to his right eye? I've only seen that ad one but I caught the symbolism instantly. It's also interesting to point out that Delta Faucets corporate logo is a pyramid made from three stylized sixes.

  253. You need to analyze the video for Miley Cyrus' "Party In The USA". Keep in mind one of the lyrics is "and a Jay-Z song was on", whilst she claims to have never heard a Jay-Z song. Possible, she didn't write it… But! The butterflies, etc, etc… You'll catch much of interest.

  254. Hey enraged Paramore fan, be a grown up, and think this through. Don't reject any information without researching it yourself.

    The symbolism is there. It exists. Now ask yourself why. Why the butterfly symbolism, the One Eye symbolism, the Devil Horns symbolism? That's a whole lot of "coincidences", many different symbols being used concurrently, symbols that all have specific occult meanings, symbols that are being used by many other popular musicians, as Vigilant has shown in previous articles.

    You need to ask yourself why the symbolism is there, and who put it there.

    Did the band put it there? If Paramore had complete artistic control of their music, lyrics, video, album art, and photo shoots, then why did this "Christian band" use all these occult symbols? If they were truly serious about Jesus, why would they use symbols that represent Lucifer? Wouldn't that make them out to be hypocrites? That's kinda like a Jew or a black guy wearing a shirt with a swastika on it.

    Or maybe, the band doesn't have complete control over their music, lyrics, video, album art, and photo shoots. Maybe the people around them, the video directors, the photographers, and the RECORD COMPANY PEOPLE WHO WRITE THEIR CHECKS, had some influence? If so, once again, if they are truly serious about being Christians, why would they submit to the people around them and use the occult symbols? Is money more important than their claimed faith in Jesus?

    Or maybe they are completely oblivious to the occult symbolism, maybe they are completely ignorant. If that is true, then your favorite band ARE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS, who are being MANIPULATED. Of course by now I am confident that the band is aware of this article, especially if it caused a raucus on the fan club website, so they no longer have any lame excuse of ignorance.

  255. @ Seara

    You referred to this verse: "Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matt. 7: 1) That means don't be a hypocrite.

    But don't forget these:

    "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment " (John 7:24)

    "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them " (Rom. 16:17).

    "Now we command you, brethren, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which ye received of us " (II Thess. 3:6).

    Paramore are certainly not walking orderly according to the Bible by using the Luciferian symbolism of the occult. So what should a real-deal, non-hypocritical, non-fake Christian do when a fellow Christian is acting unarguably non-Christian?

    "Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith " (Titus 1: 13).

    And how about the evil committed by non-Christians?

    "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them " (Eph. 5:11)

    And should we remain ignorant and hide our heads in the sand about all the evil in the world, including occult groups and their symbolism, and mind control programs? No, we should educate ourselves about the evils of the world, so that we will not be misled or manipulated.

    "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." (Matt 10:16)

    "A wise man will hear and increase learning." (Proverbs 1:5.)

    "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6)

  256. @ trulyawake

    You've been around, so I'm sure you are somewhat awake. You are correct that organized religion has been infiltrated and is used by the powers that be to control the masses.

    You are incorrect about all of the holy books being compromised. Perhaps you have seen Zeitgeist?

    Zeitgeist was a psyop, mixing historical political conspiracy truth with outright lies about historical religious truth, particularly concerning Jesus. You might want to research into who exactly it was that created Zeitgeist. Everybody has an agenda, what was theirs?

    You might want to take the Zeitgeist challenge.

  257. Vigilant, you're at it again. People keep saying "Not Paramore"… Well guess what, Satan doesn't discriminate. Great job! Keep exposing these puppets.

  258. @chainmaker The only parts of Zeitgeist I've seen are the sections that pertained to 9/11. My conclusions were drawn from my own personal faith that no organized religion can be trusted. That does not mean that I have no belief in a higher power, creator, or higher purpose for all of us. I most certainly do.

  259. @trulyawake

    I don't presume to know whats in your heart, and I am certainly not saying you are pursuing evil, but realize this: Satan himself believes in a Higher Power and Creator.

    Once you are awake to the various conspiracies in politics and religion, then it becomes very evident that the political and religious conspiracies are always tied to various secret societies that are always tied to the occult. Then if you keep digging, you can see how all these various groups despise the doctrine and teachings of Jesus, and operate exactly opposite to how Jesus said we should live.

    Many of the organized religions who actually claim Jesus, have added all kinds of doctrines and practices to their "tradition" that are nowhere to be found in the Bible. The Catholic Church is the organization that is most often held up to discount the true faith in Jesus. But if you actually read the Bible, and research the history of the Bible, you will find that the Catholic Church, and many other "Christian" organizations, do not even truly follow the very book they hold up as being the basis of their religion.

    How can Jesus and the Bible be discounted by the actions of the Catholic Church, when the Catholic Church doesn't even follow the Bible or what Jesus said in it? The Catholic Church created the story of Jesus and wrote and compiled the New Testament, and then proceeded to contradict the teachings of their own fictional character? It makes no sense. What makes sense is that organized Christian groups, most notably the Catholic Church, have been infiltrated by the occult groups, and when it comes to the Catholics, the occultism is very easy to see if you know what to look for, like the Pope's pine cone staff shown in Vigilant's Black Eyed Peas article.

    There is no religious group or denomination on earth that can save you, and certainly there is no political group that can save the earth and make everything peaceful and wonderful. There is nothing that you can do or any group of people can do, that is going to take away the evil side of human nature and stop all the evil in the world, or stop these evil political, financial, and religious leaders with their evil conspiracies for good.

    There is one name that can save you, and that is Yeshua the Messiah, AKA Jesus Christ. He is coming back, and he WILL destroy the evil for good.

  260. The first song off of the Brand New Eyes cd is called Ignorance. The video for it has Hayley waving a light bulb around in front of her face, one eye covered with hair, singing “Ignorance is your new best friend”.

  261. WHAT is the meaning of " Bury the Castle " , what does it represent the Government ?

    Is it just a marketing gimmick , doubt it Mind Control or the Occult is too obscure for the average listener so to me it's partly to get ahead of the curve , partly conditioning or make it normal and except-able

    What I like to know how their song writing starts , w/ words or ideas submitted by X (rep for industry, Mind Control / Occult expert ) , but before that is the sales pitch or threat to get on board or end up singing in a bar for the rest of your life .

  262. @chainmaker If someone has love in their heart, and they share that love with me, and I see them bestow that love unto others, I do not discredit them when they tell me they are not Christian, or that they are athiest, or that they believe nothing lies beyond this life. Such a practice is what is really killing us all. Religion has nothing to do with spirituality, nothing to do with being one with nature, one with each other, nothing to do with respect. For anyone wishing to do good by way of their religion, I respect them. For anyone wishing to further the divisiveness, I have nothing to say to them for that is the true evil working against us. The argument has been the same for centuries, that only ONE religion is the "right" one, and it is a meaningless, trivial argument that keeps the majority occupied and blind to what questions, and to whom, should really be asked. My only hope is for everyone to quit arguing the validity of their religions, and just LIVE – create the very peace that you await Jesus, or Yesshua, or Buddha, or Mohammed… bring to you. Nothing stops us from making our own peace. Not really. It is what we allow to cloud our vision that always gets in the way. I wish for everyone not to dwell too much on recognizing evil, but at least give that same attention to recognizing the good in this world and helping to expand it. Just in case….


  264. obviously VC is correct and we should thank him for the time he spends on these.

    its all information people….. learn and be aware.

    be grateful it is being made aware to you.

  265. Isn't Paramore a Christian band?!

    I believe they are.

    Also, Paramore has been around for years.

    The first thing I noticed in the video was the butterflies, that the whole video just was so wierd, and the bruial at the end was very disturbing.

    But in all honesty, I think you are a little in over your head with this one…

    Considering they have multiple songs and other things relevant to their christianity and such.

    They have worked VERY hard to be where they are now.

    I have followed them since 2004. I don't think so.

  266. most of the photos that you chose to highlight are not recent and were taken a few years ago, way before Paramore had such acclaim and popularity. They formed the band in highschool…. so…. I don't believe this to be true and believe they have rightfully earned their spot.

    Also, I think at the end, where she rips her wings off and runs away is saying that this is an anti mind control video…. if even that.

  267. Mind control and occultism is rapidly emerging from the darkness….but as I have been reading all the posts above, Its turning into a novelty. All VC is doing is revealing information.

    If are able to get angry and frustrated over others agreeing and disagreeing then we take VC's articles in vain.

    Where we can brag and boast our egos infront of the world to show who knows better is not a good start in developing ourselves. But hey, who am I to judge?

    The time is coming, whether we like it or not. A time where the world and our lives will change whether we like it or not. If you're afraid, you are because you love yourself and the material world so much, that you have difficulty to part with it.

    Stagnation of society is clearly present today. But we tend to progress more slowly so we cant notice the change, and not react/rebel against it when its too obvious. Accept it, that the world is forever changing either for positive or negative consequences. All we have is a CHOICE.

    We are droplets of the ocean and the ocean is made of the droplets. A choice from you resonates to others and the environment around you. Choose wisely, and defend your SPIRIT.

    Peace & Love,


  268. @ trulyawake

    "Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

    Christianity surely is divisive, but only divisive for those who refuse to accept the Get Out of Jail Free Card from our loving and merciful Savior. This division from the rest of the world is exactly what makes us God's children, instead of Satan's prisoners in his corrupt and evil system.

    There can be no reconciliation with other religions by a true, non-hypocritical Christian. The religions of the world, including apostate "Christian" organizations who refuse to simply take Jesus at his word, and seek to diminish what he said in John 14:6, are every last one of them infiltrated to some degree or another by pagan occultism, which always says in one way or another that people can save themselves, they can reach some kind of nirvana, or higher consciousness, or "illumination" by themselves. If I tell the Buddhist that his religion is equal to my faith, that we are on different paths to the same place, that his doctrine of Duality of Good and Evil is OK, that he can save himself by gaining enough karma, then I just called Jesus a liar, and I just made myself into a fool and a hypocrite.

    There will never be peace on earth from everyone deciding to leave their religion behind and just decide to do good. Impossible, because everyone has their evil side that they can't get rid of, and they always fail no matter what and do evil things in their lives, and there always have been people who surrender completely to their selfish dark side and conspire to control everyone else, and they always have controlled politics, they are the elites. They control, and they battle other elites for more control, using the sheeple to fight their battles and using religion and ideologies to rally and brainwash the sheeple to keep them under control.

    The true doctrine of Jesus is the only faith that preaches the coming end of all that bs, and doesn't teach us to go out and conquer the world, and doesn't teach us to accept evil as a necessary part of nature. Live the Golden Rule and witness to others about Christ, that's true Christianity.

    The warfare and conspiracy will never end until Jesus comes back and ends it for good. You gotta believe in Him and accept his free gift of salvation, or you'll never get to see what a world without evil is like.

    "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." (Revelation 21:4)

  270. A) I'm surprised no one mentioned the use of pi?

    B) It seems more like the girl is scared, running away, renouncing it, and eventually burying it. If this has anything to do with mind control it's saying that she's done with it.

  271. I'm amazed there is NO article about gwen stefani? She's one of the most obvious cases of sex kitten mind controlled woman in the music business long before lady gagas and rihannas came to the scene. Since the non-famous no doubt times before 1995.

  272. daughter of christ on

    well we all know that it sucks to see when sumone has disappoint u . but plp u jus have to face reality. man deceives man and god. so if it so happens that paramore is against god it just is. cuz i mean i have been disppointed also in stars who i love that have turn their back against god. but it is not like i can do anything about that. REMEMBER ALL VIGILANT is doing is letting u being aware of the things that is occuring in the music industry. so plp remember this one important message trust the lord and only the lord. man tends to disappoint man but its becuz we are all born imperfect. so plp although u may not want to believe that paramore is one of them jus make sure u dont have them as ur idol. rememeber it is one of our commandments and also GOD IS A VERY JEALOUS GOD. thank u and may the lord bless u all.

  273. Great article about Paramore’s song. The symbols and stories in these videos are so blatantly obvious that it hurts to see that the maximum one can gets from a fan forum of these artists is “I love so and so part”… :(

    Society is really more and more dissociative, it is all about “ahh you’re so paranoid, its just a video!”

  274. Listen all, there is a spirit that permeates the world. A poisonous gas that we all breath in. Just as the scripture states: (Ephesians 2:2) . . .in which YOU at one time walked according to the system of things of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit that now operates in the sons of disobedience.

    This spirit, or mental frame of mind, permeates all levels of society. You are trained from an early age to just go along with the crowd. It is a spirit from Satan the Devil himself for he is the ruler of the world, and he controls everything in the world: (1 John 5:19) . . .The whole world is lying in the [power of the] wicked one.

    How much of the world is emanates from Satan its ruler. Here is another confirmation of that: (Revelation 12:9) . . .So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the ENTIRE inhabited earth;. . .

    Everyone is being mislead and in darkness. Everyone has a mental blind on. Everyone is fooled. Very few people actually see the truth. Very few. Even many who think they know the truth and have lifted the veil from their eyes are actually duped and are still in darkness, thinking they see light, and know the truth, while they are held in bonds of darkness.

    You go along with your families and celebrate Christmas every year, whether you claim to worship God or not. Well, most of you. You celebrate your birthday every year, just as your parents taught you to do, and you train your children. These are but a couple of examples of celebrations that are founded in paganism (the birthday is actually the greatest day to Satanists, for that is when you were born, and you are a god, so it is a day when a god was born.)

    The so-called "Christian" involves him/herself in politics, they send their children to school and it is okay for them that their children say the pledge of allegiance, in whatever country they are in.

    They think they are in light spiritually but they are in utter and total darkness. They celebrate the holidays of the world, polluting their worship with pagan teachings and doctrines, and traditions. They adulterate their worship of God by getting involved in politics and wars (which are controlled by Satan for he is the ruler of the world, Jesus' kingdom is no part of this world).

    And those that are different from you, who have separated from the world, who have ceased celebrating pagan holidays, who have stopped killing each other, who refuse to put worship of state above the worship of God, yes, those who are truely enlightened, these ones the so-called intelligent among you, who think you know the deceit, you join Satan in persecuting them. Albeit many of you do it in ignorance, as Saul once ignorantly persecuted true Christians who also did not partake of the holidays of the world, or involve themselves in the politics of the world.

    Most of the so-called Christians are probably well-meaning. They just don't know any better. Just as the author of this website has shown, Satan has control over the music industry. And this should not surprise us. He is the ruler of the world. And if you want to partake of his world, be a part of it, if you want to be one of its shining lights, you want power, or fame, or prestige, or money – don't you think that the ruler of the world is going to want to ask something back of you? Whether you are willing accompliaces or are an unwitting player in his deceit, you cannot think for one moment that you will get ahead in the world, in the music business, in politics, in the movie industry, in sports, whatever it may be, and the Devil not come asking something back in return for what he gave you.

    The thing is this – for those of you interested in finding a career and making a name for yourself in this world, it is all for naught. Keep your eye simple, put God's kingdom first, and separate yourself completely from the political and religious system of things in Satan's hands, yes even Christendom. It is a great part of Satan's scheme. Open your eyes. Figure out who it is that have separated themselves from the wicked system in Satan's hands, it's political system of things, and its false religious teachings and tradations, including the celebrating of pagan holidays of Ester, Christmas, Holoween, to name a few, the celelbrating of birthdays, the worshipping of the state, who have ceased getting invovled in the governments who are ruled by Satan, who have ceased killing each other, and who really are witnessing about God's incoming kingdom government.

    Lift the veil off your eyes. The truth is available to all. But the traditions of men, pride of self, hatred of truth, self-deception, trickery, apathy, unwillingness to be humble, meek, teachable, all of these things among others lead all, except a few into the same path, the broad road where all have been blinded by the God of this system of things: (2 Corinthians 4:4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.

    And this humble servant wishes you all the best. Remember that anyone wishing can partake of life's water FREE. Keep seeking and you will find it. Keep knocking and the door will be opened. The truth, true wisdom, light, it calls out to you in the market place, it has placed itself where all can see it. It is calling to you, heed its answer if you love life and wish to live.

  275. i love this website…it keeps me aware of the things that we indulge in….Vigilant stay in-the-know!

  276. You really think that Western Occult traditions in it's diffuse, disconnected affiliates are responsible for today's world… I guess you would have to be smoking the Jesus pipe pretty hard and long to be brainwashed enough not to realize that most people on this Earth are mind controlled by either Islam or Christianity, hence, the extreme actions and illogical thoughts that fill your world… I choose the lighted path of rationality and personal freedom… and obviously don't belong here!

    See ya suckers!! heee. heee…. You make good lambs of Christ! Enjoy the slaughter.

  277. But.. one last word…. does VC have the balls enough to expose the real conspiracies like monotheism… the ultimate brain washers or are you going to keep chasing suppressed, misunderstood or even imaginary scapegoats that make up Occult traditions?

    I hope you soul search a bit and use a little rationality and do what's right… and think about who upholds liberty and the value of individuals and their thoughts and which organizations clearly hold no such values, use guilt as a tool to make you feel indebted to some Jewish who suffered two thousand years ago… and claim to be the only way… or threaten hell if you don't think like the heard….blatant illogical beliefs not to be questioned…. it all should be so obvious, but alas the plight of the masses looks pretty tragic indeed…. I'm sure they will have someone else to blame for it all when life doesn't go their way at least…. and will play the suffering Christ to make it mean something… maybe life is just easier that way for them.

  278. Gabriel T. Hammond, I rebuke you in the name of OUR Lord and Savioir, Jesus Christ.

    The power of Christ compels you! The power of Christ compels you! LOL

    I temper my post with a bit of humor. But in all seriousness, one day you'll know the truth. I just pray it isn't one minute too late. Go forth in love, brother. Jesus never harmed you. Don't slander Him. That's fair.

  279. okay. i am going to try this again, since my last comment got deleted. i read this whole article, and took it all into consideration. BUT. Paramore is my favorite band, and i have been following them from the beginning, since before they were this famous. i know them very well, and they do all their own work. they did in fact, write this song. ask yourself this. why would Hayley Williams write a song about mind-control? answer: she wouldn't. why would they make a video that has to do with mind-control? [they are hands-on with all of their work, they actually came up with the idea for this video.] answer: they wouldn't. here is what the song is ACTUALLY about.

    Frontwoman Hayley Williams talked to about the meaning of the song. "This song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they're living a fantasy life. It's one thing to have goals and dreams but it's another thing when you never know where you're standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that." "Brick by Boring Brick" comes from Paramore's third studio installment "Brand New Eyes". Hayley said, "[It] is about not accepting reality and understanding that you don't have to make everything frilly or pretty-sounding for it to be interesting. Life doesn't have to be some grand production, and some of the boring parts of being alive are actually the greatest. The song is about breaking down those walls and finding out that the centre of it is what really matters."

    In the deluxe version of Brand New Eyes, Hayley Williams wrote in the booklet,

    “I believe it’s important to stay young at heart. To have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current ambitions or temporary means. However, there is a huge difference, to me anyways, between acknowledging your dreams and never living in reality. Some people are so scared of being boring— so insecure with who they might be— that they build up this huge lie, it’s all one big distraction. For not only the on-lookers but for their self. To me, it is a selfish way to live. A great means of defense. But selfish nonetheless. I’ve been hurt by this lifestyle. Hurt by people I barely know. I’ve even been guilty of living this way. It’s so common. I’m glad that I’ve found some words to finally speak up about it. A brick is such a traditional, tired and plain boring representation of solidity. I wanted the whole song to have this sort of fairy tale vibe… only to twist the point I’m trying to make in the song which is, ‘Stop living in a fake fairytale… like, WAKE UP!’ When thinking how I could really get that across in the song I decided I’d use a house. Someone’s safe place, even in a fairy tale… you can’t forge a refuge out of magic & fairy dust. You gotta build it just as real and as solid as a stupid old brick."

    The video features a young, blonde girl who has many similarities to lead singer Hayley Williams. The little girl walks through a fairy tale land but as she gets deeper into the fairy tale the atmosphere changes and it suddenly becomes dark and evil. The ending shows the little girl falling into a hole that lead guitarist Josh Farro had been digging throughout the video. The fairy tale land is supposed to represent a lie and as the girl gets deeper into the lie things change and become worse. Singer Hayley Williams seems to be the narrator of the story while Jeremy Davis (bass) is a knight, Zac Farro (drums) is a robber and Taylor York (guitar) is a gnome.

    The video is clearly not about mind-control, it is about a girl [probably Hayley] that creates a fairy tale world around her. then, the "castle gets buried" meaning she gets rid of the fake world she has created. If you listen to Brand New Eyes, it is mostly about the hardships the band has gone through beteween Riot! and Brand New Eyes. this song represents one of those hardships. and so does the video.

    oh and, FYI:

    – those are not butterfly wings falling. they're rose petals.

    – a lot of those pictures of the "eye symbolism" are old. even if paramore was part of this whole "mind-control" thing, i'm pretty darn sure they wouldn't be from the beginning. because you guys yourself said that mind-control only targets mainstream music, right? well, paramore was not that mainstream until Brand New Eyes. Hayley always does various crazy poses like that simply because it looks cool, not because it's symbolizing something. as for the first picture, which is obviously recent, they simply did that because it goes with the title of their album. their album is called Brand New Eyes because after all the fights & whatnot they've had, they see things in a different light. so they see things with "brand new eyes".

    – their album cover does not symbolize mind control either. on being asked why they chose that as the cover, Hayley explained: "i found the butterfly in my moms driveway a while ago… dead and completely in tact. after writing the lyrics for "brick by boring brick" with the one line that says "the angles were all wrong, now she's ripping wings off of butterflies"… the image we chose for this song was the butterfly i'd found. only we cut its wings off and pinned the butterfly with all its separate pieces in order on the fence in my backyard. in hindsight, to me, it represents the fact that broken pieces… individual pieces can still make one big picture. doesn't matter if they all have their own purpose as long as they stand together." …once again this goes with the hardships that the band has gone through. they all have their own purpose in the band AND they stand together. THAT'S what Brand New Eyes is about.

    – i will bet you ANY money that Hayley Williams & Josh Farro [wrote the song] have no idea about this mind-control stuff, or that there are people that believe their song/video might be related to it in any way whatsoever. they are very hands-on with their work. and neither their song or video has anything to do with this. they are CREATIVE. that is one of the many reasons why they are my favorite band. they always make me think. but THIS is a far stretch.

    – i read a lot of comments about people talking about their religion. yes, they are indeed Christian and they have been for a long time. they do pray before every show, and in their "thank-yous" section in their cd booklets, they always thank God. they do not "worship the devil" or whatever you guys were talking about. Hayley even quoted a bible verse in the Brand New Eyes booklet [yes, i am paramore-addicted enough to read the thank-yous lol.] they are also VERY down-to-earth, highly appreciative of everything [especially their fans], and honest.

    – they always have awesome videos that symbolize something. for example, in the video for their single Ignorance, the video shows Hayley being singled out and ignored by the other members of the band. A single light bulb shines throughout the video and it is constantly on her, no matter how hard she tries to stretch the wire and shine it on the other members. The video cuts between the band preforming in a cramped little room, a larger performance area and Williams being laid bare in white clothes, hair pulled back etc. The video ends with the other members of the band being able to wrap the light bulb wire around Williams, showing how the spotlight is only on her and never on the other band members. this is CREATIVE. and yeah it does symbolize something. but i know for a fact that paramore would NEVER symbolize mind-control. what more proof do you need than everything i have just stated, which i swear on my grandpa's grave is all TRUE facts?

    and guys, please don't even try to say that they're "putting on a show" or "lying to people what the song/video is about". because that is FAR from the case.

    i also agree with numerous previous comments that have been made lately:

    – Educate yourself by looking into the band itself before drawing any conclusions, and using ALL evidence before forming any conclusions.

    – You’ve got this band all wrong. They are genuinely nice, caring people, and would definetly not use “mind-control” on any of their projects. They are a band that do it just for the fans, and to get their music out there.

    – And to be honest, i could care less about mind control. Your view on things is pretty over analyzed and wrong, but you’re a good writer, you just need to learn how not to take things a little too far.

    – Paramore’s latest album is called “Brand New Eyes”, which has obvious mind control/Illuminati connotations. The cover features a pinned butterfly with its wings separated from its body…symbolic indeed

    Seriously, this proves that you know NOTHING about this band. If you did, you would now exactly on what that title is based on. This band has had many personal problems in the past, leading almost to a break-up. They have found their way too overcome their problems with each other and now look at each other with ‘brand new eyes.’ The entire album reflects how they felt in the past (Careful, Ignorance, Playing God) to how they feel about each other now (Looking Up, Where The Lines Overlap). This band has released two albums before, this is their third and just because of one out of eleven songs on this album, they are trying to mind-control people? I think the person who is trying to control the minds of other people is you, by shoving this crap into their heads.

    Deepen yourself in the band and their history before you make a judgement on what they are about. I suggest you look the song up at and see what people (who actually know things about the band) have to say about the song and the meaning behind it.

    But as Seara says, what the hell do we know, where just mind-controlled by a band who sings about their personal problems.

    hahah. almost couldn't have said it better myself guys. 😉

    • @danielle you've perfectly described the "face value" of the song. In occult symbolism, there is more than one layer of interpretation and more than one meaning to a symbol. There is a meaning for the masses and one for the initiates. I've explained the occult, hidden meaning portrayed by the video. This meaning will never be explained in interviews or in magazines. The video was directed by Meiert Avis, who has worked with dozens of artists since the 80's. He is an MTV legend and he often incorporated occult symbolism in his works. If Paramore members don't know about Mind Control, Meiert Davis knows ALL about it.

  280. I like visiting this website because it is so insightful; it's nice to have [truth] when we live in the world such as we live. Some of you are asking, "Why are these things happening?" and "Where/what is this leading to?",… I say simply that these are signs, of Jesus Christ's Second Coming & demonstrations of Satanic powers at work. Now, I don't know whether Vigilant has made any connection of these events to the Word of God but, I wish to say that, those of you who study the Bible, know their significance. We are truly living in the last & final days of planet Earth's history. God the Father is withdrawing His grace from America, because America is preparing right now as you're reading this to set up a NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW. What does that mean? That means that our government will no longer uphold the belief in separation of church and state but will, under seemingly good intentions, enforce Sunday sacredness. This will deceive many into worshiping the beast power of Revelation 13. God blessed America to come into existence because it was here, under the safeguard of the Constitution, that the Truth could be preached and spread across land and sea.

    Here's an excerpt from the book "THE GREAT CONTROVERSY",

    "Through the two great errors, the immortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome. The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience." [p.588.1]

    That paragraph sums up how close we are to the Second Coming of Christ. We haven't fully reached a national address on Sunday sacredness but we are close. It is the subject of the "immortality of the soul" that we dealing with. That's where the Movie and Music Industry play a huge role; they under Mind Control are introducing spiritualism & supernatural themes. I don't even have to mention the loads of movies they've produced, "blockbusters" as they rightly called, over the couple of years. Droves of people rushing to dark movie theaters to see Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Paranormal Activity, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The X Files: I Want to Believe, Mirrors, The Time Traveler's Wife, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Friday the 13th, etc…

    (*there are other movie titles, of the past two years, that have underlying supernatural themes)

    It's a hard reality, it's difficult for me-I struggle, God knows, but He has given me clear signs that it's time to wake up and choose who I am going to serve. To everyone, hang in there & understand that how you live your life each day will decide upon which side you'll stand.

  281. I have to say that I agree with Danielle and was planning on posting something similar. I do not think that Paramore would write a song about mind-control. This song is simply about burying the fantasy past and switching to the real world. If you watch the video, there are too many similarities between Hayley and the young girl in the video. Also, at the end of the video, Hayley does not throw the doll at the girl, she simply drops it into the hole as if releasing the last bit of her fantasy life. This song was written by a girl who is simply in the midst of growing up. Not by a person who is trying to control the minds of the youth. Listen to the rest of the cd, read information on the band and get informed.

  282. Is it possible that the song could just be about trying to escape reality by staying in a dream world….i've written songs before when i was younger, having troubled times and many of them involved the same concept of livving in a dream world and unwilling to open my eyes, kind of like the "fairy tale" that hayley is talking about……but then again the pics are kinda WEIRD :s – maybe their directors are telling them to do those poses because its "COOL" . P.S if anybody enjoys music like paramore they should check FLYLEAF (start with the song "again")…..female fronted rock band without the mind control lol 😛

  283. whoever left comment 340,

    you said it all…. when judging something like this look at it from both sides and stop being BIASED!

  284. If sex magick fortune telling with semen facial pattern recognition is allowed to flourish within the music industry, how can you expect otherwise???

  285. @ Natasha

    While it can certainly be argued whether or not Christians should be keeping the Sabbath of the Torah, there is not going to be a National Sunday Law. Read the Bible for yourself, instead of believing a book from a woman in the 1800s, who came up with a "prophecy" about this National Sunday Law, an idea that seemed possible in the 1800s, when the United States was almost completely White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, but now, the idea is absolutely ridiculous, as the United States is a multicultural and multi religious nation with ever larger numbers of people drifting toward atheism and paganism.

    False prophets everywhere, no one will just simply read the Bible and research for themselves, they gotta have somebody telling them what to believe.

    There is plenty of conspiracy going on Natasha, but the National Sunday Law is an illusion, a very outdated conspiracy theory from the 1800s.

  286. My beloveds,

    Shall we say that your minds and free will are less important than your souls? For whom can sell a man a fish if he does not delight in sea food, or whom can sell their soul which is not theirs, but belongs to the Father in Heaven the true living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? The battlefield is in your minds and your proclivity to gravitate toward your hidden desires (sex, love, acceptance and wealth) allows for the court ship and you enjoy the romantic notion of being seduced. All the while your eyes dance a pale shade of wanton desires and thus your Monsters come out at night. You are not promised life but you are guaranteed a death, So smoke your weed enjoy your fleshPlease feel free to visit… and watch the video Sorry For My Sins. The event are true and not stage Home Land Security’s investigation, The FBI and The Local Police Departments interaction are not staged. This is a testimony into God’s grace and mercy in my life. Have a taste of my Psalms unto Yeshua. To all be prosperous, be well and I offer you a blessing unto the righteous desires of your heart this very hour. (According Unto Your Faith Shall It Be Done).

    Give Praise and Thanks Make a joyful noise unto our Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am the prodigal Son the Son of perdition on my way back home when hope turns black and your all alone Gods waiting on the prodigal to come back home:

    [ The Spirit it self is full of life and truth to edify unto the loving Church in the most holy

    of faithful that we might be ready for all activity in God For the Spirit of the Lord is upon us to bring forth what God has declared and ordained that we should go forth baring precious fruit and come forth rejoicing singing his praises to the Holy God.

    We’re Gods prodigal Sons we put down hate and we pick up his love We open our eyes from darkness to light from the Powers of Satan to Jesus Christ.

    Every Spirit that lives will confess that Christ has come into the flesh to bring us life not give us death to bring us hope and peace and rest.

    … have a Great Life and a Better Death for Heaven awaits the just, the charitable and the pure at heart.



  287. @ comment 340 aka danielle.

    Your sources and information are entirely from Paramore directly. Do you think when Lady Gaga is asked what her video's represent she gives you a breakdown of mind-control project influences and explains ancient religious allegories? Would people have gone to Hitler to get the facts on the Holocaust?

    Albeit I respect different views, I do not come here to get my daily "fix" of occult information. This website DOES represent the 'other' view. I come here to open my eyes to new things, no one said I had to believe it.

    Basically what I'm saying is come back when you grow up a little bit, mature a little bit. Stay in school, pick up a couple of decent research methods. Learn how to do sound research, and continue to dig deeper. Paramore will never tell its 17 year old fans that they are trying to brainwash them. Don't be silly. For those like you, it is best to say that they hide stuff right in the open because that is where it is least noticed.

    Of course you would disagree with the views in this article, because you cannot fathom its contents. What he is blatantly spelling out for you is exactly who you are. The mind-controlled minion.

    FYI: when we are speaking of mind-controlled fans, please refrain from saying this like "Paramore is my favorite band," "I LOVE music," and "why would she do that to me?"

    Grow up.

  288. @ Lola

    "I do not think Paramore would…"

    Refrain from beginning phrases like this, as well.

    I do not know why the people of today think because of a few MTV Diarys and article covers that they know the heart, soul, and mind of an artist. They are marketing themselves. Not only do you not know them as individuals (i.e. religious belief), but you do not know the teams they work with, the history of the people they work with, nor do you have a clue about what their motives are. Of course you don't think Paramore would make a video about mind-control, but what solid research have you done and what is the basis of your 'thought'? Nothing bullet-proof.

    I personally do not care who does and does not listen to Paramore or anyone else. But this is not a site where Vigilant is attempting to convince you. He is sharing perspective, shedding light. Take it or leave it, but if you are going to rebut, at least give him some respect and do the same amount of research. I guarantee you'll find more similarities than disparities.

  289. Hi all…regarding the ongoing issue of mind control & the music and entertainment industry

    Just thought you might be interested in tuning into the Royal Variety Show on UK ITV 8.00pm tonight – Lady Gaga and The Queen of England – the show is packed with loadsa symbolism – lady in red – comedy host & acting court jester Peter Kay dressed up in costume as white rabbit – he proclaims Blackpool the entertainment capital of the UK – it is indeed – as headlined on front page of industry bible 'The Stage' newspaper – "A Return To Wonderland."

    Also look out for a dark and disturbing monarch butterfly transformation number for forces sweetheart Kathryn Jenkins singing Evenscense classic – Bring Me to Life –

    All held in friendly northern seaside town of Blackpool – in reality an illuminati / masonic stronghold – where the entrance to the town is actually called Starr Gate – where there is a giant moon shaped spinning glitterball opposite Starr gate that beams & spins gobo's of eyes and pyramids – aka a spinning rotating Sphere – this is situated opposite the Solarius Centre -which is framed by two large wind turbines – which is situated opposite a public promenade made of giant metal gates / cubes shapes and squares based within circles – these are publicised as works of modern 'art' – not so -s o innapropriately placed along a crappy old British seaside promenade..yet so slick, so stylish – so futuristic -slap bang in the middle of Blackpool beach???

    From the entrance of Starr Gate – All these objects are surrounded & protected by a long line of unusually curvacious curved and angular lamposts..and lights, little dotted lights everywhere's like a space age runway & docking & landing bay..they are curved to hold the energy – it's like something out of a James Bond movie set….

    This is the gateway to another dimension alright…portals extarordinaire – a giant magnet horseshoe shaped conduit disguised as a seat – opposite the biggest rollercoaster and fun park in Europe – aka an energy transmitter – leading to 3 miles of illuminations – the famous Blackpool 'illumnations' aka the illuminated seafront that get 'switched on' every year – forming an amazing illuminated path along the famous 'golden mile' literally festooned with the biggest free light show in the world……

    Ahhh all that glitters is not gold…often have you heard that told…..razzle dazzle …where all the sordid showbiz, glamour & glitterati mingle with the pros, paparzziii & porno pimps – Blackpool – it's rather like that popular Broadway classic number 42cnd Street where we inadvertantly hum and sing a hymn to the darkside:

    ""Come and meet those dancing feet

    On the avenue i'm taking you to

    Where the underworld meets the elite.

    42cnd Street…"

    There is loads more going on – imagine the energy captured and conducted over the holiday season as over 12 million people visit this resort – known as the Las Vegas of the UK – now an abode of evil of the highest order – with it's 'anything goes' attitude, drunken debauched stag and hen parties, drug fuelled nightclubs, bars and crazy party scene, hedonistic wild weekends, lewd & rude comedy shows, hypnotists and strip bars, lap dancing clubs and UKs biggest gay scene..also…the latest project is BRILLIANCE a space age state of the art music and laser light show – it looks like something from War of The Worlds with giant balled lamposts beaming lasers and images on the street – that wouldn't be out of place in a nightclub…but where is it…opposite The Winter Gardens Theatre down a quiet public street where all the banks and cafes are…not even in the main holiday zone ..just a regular old street…or is it??

    The famous Blackpool Tower and the Cenotaph & the Winter Gardens venue and Empress Ballroom dome where the Royal V show held ..very sinister sites – this is no coincindence that next year sees the WORLD Magic Convention being held here …and newsflash just in…all these Venues – Tower – Winter Gardens and other local attractions now being bought back by local council from self made millionaire and entreprenuer Trevor Hemmings – this was literally announced on day of Royal Variety show – very significant events and synchronistic happenings…laylines – sacred old sites of great significance and interest.

    Back at the Royal Variety Show –

    An unusually subserviant Lady Gaga sings 'Speechelss' then bows adoringly to the Queen of England – it was an initiation and thank you ceremony – the Queen even broke protocol by shaking hands with performers in front to the audience – in plain sight…

    The Queen gave her seal of approval – on many levels – watch Blackpool rise now..strange times – strange place – The Queen & Lady Gaga's pictures were on every national & international newspaper & made front page news.

    The world is a stage….thus leading to…this:

    People you need to understand that Paramore is a manufactured band – made for the masses when you say "but..Paramore said in an interview" "Hayley wrote this…Hayley said that..".. do not be so niave as to believe Paramore / Hayley really said this – this is all pre packed and pre written well in advance by their PR's and slick management & marketing team – they are constructed to tell you what you want to hear…

    Everything you read from album covers, interviews , chat show 'chat' is contrived , pre planned, rehearsed and engineered – it's an ACT – they are literally an ACT – that is their profession – thay are a musical ACT – from how they look., what they say, what they sing – do you really believe these types of performers really have an opinion – this is the job of the PR to write it all for them – all that stuff on their album -their pictures – it's ALL made's a PR dream to get you to believe they said it – they are acting..they are part of the game.

    Look at the current backlash to the X Factor winner going to number one in the UK – why do you think a facebook campaign to stop the manufactured dross and mind controlled massed buying into this Christmas number 1 hype has taken the world by storm ….as I write this the people who know …want those who are trying to control us …to know WE know!!! Rage Against The Machine's "Killing In The Name Of"…says it all – check out the lyrics :


    The people are on the uprise – this unexpected backlash is an outpouring of energy – this is good news – this is happening today – in front of your very eyes & ears.

    The X Factor winner Joe Mcelderry is being told what to sing, what to say – controlled by the X Factor stylists, svengali management & music moguls …over the last few weeks those taking part have come from nothing and from nowehere – hand picked to be groomed, told how to sing, how to dance , how to smile, they've been shamed & humiliated in front of millions of people ( masonic rituals) if they put a foot wrong, then outshone & ushered in by the masters of the industry with a further humiliation by having to show their ineptitude and servility by performing like stupid little mesmerised monkeys next to pop 'legends' ' like George Michael, Robbie Williams and Whitney Houston – then they are re-styled and re-modelled right in ront of you – while you sit at home like robots and even VOTE which one you want to be a slave to the system!!

    When and if you vote or call in … YOU are paying them to make you a SLAVE to them…in the words of Bob Marley….don't let them change you..or even re-arrange you..oh no!!

    Why do you think Silvio Burlesconi has just been smacked in the face ?? It's the rise of anarchy – it was the TRUTH that hit him in the face ….what comes round goes around…..this is the time can make a difference…so go ahead and do the right thing this Christmas …smack the devil right in the face too ….Shame the devil and tell the truth – knock X Factor off No1……show them we know…..

    Thanks for the inspiration Vigilant – great work – you are like the Screwtape Letters of our time – showing us how it's done – wise up people.

  290. One thing you seem to have missed is that in the mirror scene, the pattern of the butterfly wings is that of a Monarch butterfly. The butterfly on the album cover is not a Monarch.

    Note: There are similarly patterned butterflies that are not Monarchs, but use the Monarch pattern. They do this for protection, since Monarch butterflies are poisonous to predators and identified by their pattern (thus untouchable). A similar phenomenon might occur in the esoteric realm — symbolic simulacra may camouflage a non-poisonous nature and by extension protect the camouflaged from those who Know.

  291. i love the work ure doing

    this news are really good ignore the bad comments people say youre doing a good jOb =]

  292. @Vigilant

    okay, i see what you're saying. and yeah, there COULD be hidden meaning behind the video. but as for the song lyrics, it's not about mind control. i think i proved that well. and i have a question. say, even if the guy who directed it is trying to "mind-control" us. what's the point? what is he trying to do/prove, to me, as a paramore listener/watcher? obviously i am a non-believer, and you say that i am "mind-controlled". i feel fine with my life, and fine with the way the band presents themselves. i am confident they would never lie to their fans and are good people and i am not under a "mind-control" or "spell". so now what happens to me? because the only mind-controlling i see here is the power of music. which me as an artist myself knows, has no bad side effects.

    @ Mina

    Do you know what? i can actually see Lady Gaga being a part of this whole mind-control thing. because that girl is just plain weird. but paramore? sorry. never. and they would never lie to their fans about what their music is about. ALL of their music is entirely from what they felt from when they first started out, until now. and as i stated before, they were not mainstream until Brand New Eyes. but, Brand New Eyes is about their hardships as a band….the things they went through between Riot! and this new album…so why would they write a song about mind control? why would someone target them [and no one targeted them, Hayley & Josh wrote the song by themselves] to write a song about mind control when they weren't that popular until after this record release? and you think it was bad of me to use quotes from the band, but the reason why i did is because they are telling the TRUTH of what the song is ACTUALLY about. i did read all of this article and read a lot more about it. so don't say i'm not "in the know" with what is being presented here. i am not "mind-controlled" by paramore, never have…and never will be. but if i ever am…i'll be sure to let you know. 😉 and i don't need to grow up, but thanks for your concern.

  293. Awww poor Keleigh I really like what she had to say. I've looked move in depth on things such as the Illuminati and the things that I found were overwhelming and yet VC has not yet mentioned those things. Don't get me wrong I respect VC but yeah why not look more into things and ask the hard questions. But VC shouldn't be the only person to do this, we should all be looking for answers because this is our world and minds that they are messing with.

  294. Where as all of this is highly quincedental, i find it really hard to believe that a band with morals as strong as Paramore's and a firm belief in God would "convert" so quick and easy. I honestly do believe that these symbols you are talking about are relavent though. But it seems to me that if anyone is contributing to this mind control and putting it out for the public to "secretly" take in its the people who direct these videos and put the clothes on these performers backs. I think this because the artist to director/producer ratio is completely unequal. There are more artists than producers or directors which makes it much easier for just one director or producer to "spread the word" if they have many artist "helping" them do it even if the artists are completely oblivious to the fact that they are being used for "mind control" Paramore is a band that i am SURE take absolutely no part in the occult. Sir, i believe that you are over thinking things. But it all is quite wierd.

  295. After listening to the songs on the new album, I actually think they are trying to warn us. Maybe they are using the symbols in their photos to tell us and make us aware of what’s going on around us hoping we will notice the repetition of it. I’m not even a big fan of them. But I could have it all wrong..

    Listen to their other songs, I’d really like to hear other peoples thoughts of what they mean!

  296. ok…………. this is a load of bs paramore are like the most pure band ever! watthe hell are u smoking coz this is just a load of slander against one of my fave bands same applys to lady gaga…. please find something better to do with ur time and stoop BRAINWASHING vilgiang christans because basiaclly thats what your doing

  297. This video is VERY similar to the film "pans labyrinth"…..(spoiler involved) a young girl who is obsessed with fairytales embarks on her own fairytale to escape the darkness of reality….the fairytale is quite gothic and twisted…in the end she ends up dieing.

  298. Oh no, sir, you are wrong about this one. Paramore is a very Christian band, and I see no evil in them whatsoever. This video was inspired by Pans Labyrinth, so stop it.

  299. Uh uh, I refuse to believe that a good band (literally, they're really nice) such as Paramore is involved in this.

    You stop it, vigilant ):

  300. Also, Vigilant, i do understand that you have done tons of research for this mind-control stuff. but before you accuse a band of such a wrongful act, maybe you should do more research ON THE BAND. after you know everything about them like i do, you listen to ALL of their songs, watch tons of interviews of them, watch the Final Riot! DVD, learn what kind of people they are and where they came from, the hardships they went through as a band, their history, their childhood and families they grew up into, THEN maybe i would believe you. but since most of us non-gullible people clearly know more about the band and what they stand for than you do, it's kind of hard for you to point a finger at them. it's basically the same concept of judging a book by it's cover. sorry to say, but it's quite stereotypical of you. i also agree with Mika Bee's comment. [#357.] there could be some hidden mind-control stuff in the video from the director, but i honestly would bet you all the money in the world that they would NEVER purposely be involved with it, let alone write a song about it.

  301. I like how you worded everything it cleared up my meaning I thought the same way but not exactly the same way I thought the little girl was Hayley and she was running off in her world and when things got bad in her world and her regular world she tried to escape it but didn't quite do it well.This explains the chorus "well go get your shovel and we'll dig a deep hole to bury the castle to bury the castle" The castle is her imagination her world her place. And when little Hayley falls in the grave and they proceed to bury her that's the symbol of Hayley burying her old self. this song really reminds me of Alice in wonderland and pans labyrinth and wizard of oz combined but like a darker version. but paramore wouldn't put anything out that has a demented meaning it. Though i do agree this is paramores way of saying we are not emo we are creative we are unique we are not just for children and we are awesome. PaR@^^oR3 4 ev3r and 3v3r.

  302. !!!!!

    Paramore is my favorite band, and I scoured this site beforehand to see if there was anything on them. Dang, I don't want to believe this post…

  303. I used to like this band, but there f***ed up too, this is a part of the lyrics from their single "crush, crush" check them out:

    They taped over your mouth

    Scribbled out the truth with their lies

    You little spies

    sounds very strange to me

    peace bros

  304. dont forget about how lady gaga was in a mirror (dressed like Barbara Streisand) in her bad romance video

    i feel like thats an extremely significant part, but no one has really explained it

  305. wow. i think you're reading far too into this song.

    if you actually researched, you would have read the interview with the lead singer, hayley williams, discussing the true meaning of the song.

    which it's about the defense mechanism of building up a fairytale life so your's doesn't seem as boring.

    by the way, the band does not create the music video. that's done by a director and producer

    so sometimes the videos don't 100% represent what the lyrics do.

    i respect that you are voiceing your opinion, but i think you took it too far.

    paramore is not mind-controlling anyone.

  306. Take this into consideration:

    Hayley Williams (Lead Singer of Paramore)

    Her written words from her own lyric journal on the meaning of 'Brick by Boring Brick':

    "I believe it's important to stay young at heart. To have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current abilities or temporary means. However, there is a huge difference, to me anyways. Between acknowledging your dreams and never living in reality. Some people are so scared of being boring – so insecure with who they might be – that they build up this huge lie. Its all one big distraction. For not only the on-lookers but for their self. To me, it is a selfish way to live. A great means of defense. But selfish nonetheless Ive been hurt by this lifestyle. Hurt by people I barely know. I've even been guilty of living this way. it's so common. I'm glad that I've found some words to finally speak up about it. A brick is such a traditional, tired and plain boring representation of solidity. I wanted the whole thing to have this sort of fairy tale vibe…only to twist the point im trying to make in the song which is, "Stop living in a fake fairytale…like, 'WAKE UP'!" when thinking how I could really get that across in the song I decided I'd use a house, someone's safe place, even in a fairytale… You cant forge a refuge out of magic + fairydust. You gotta build it just as real and as solid as a stupid old brick."

    (Records from the Paramore 'brand new eyes' Deluxe-Editon I had purchased)

    Thank you

  307. I was on the set of this music video and I can tell you that the choice for the little girl's wings was totally her own. The costume guy had 3 sets of wings (red butterfly, pink fairy, and white fairy) and he and the director let the little girl choose. She originally chose the pink fairy wings but the straps broke so then she chose the red wings.

  308. It's interesting reading the comments that follow these articles. Usually they are biased and boring to read, other times they bring up some well fought points. But that's just it… they are just opinions.

    You can listen to this song a thousand times, and it will not tell you anything but the same old lyrics.

    You can analyse the song a dozen times and you will probably find more than enough interpretations. It's like literature. It depends on what one takes from a book, not what one is taught about it. You can be a passive-learner and just understand the meaning of a book by agreeing with what the teacher says, or you can be open-minded and read the book again, finding a different interpretation. That is the same with this song.

    I think it is wise that you chose this song in particular.

    When I first saw the video, I did not understand it at all. I tuned into MTV TWO one day about half way through the video. Later I decided to re-watch this video (from the beginning) to gain a better understanding of why Paramore chose a fairytale setting. Admittedly this did provoke interest as this is not something Paramore would usually do.

    Simply I just sought this video to be about ones imagination getting the better of them. It's ironic actually – in my Literature class now we are studying poems by John Keats who deals with the issue of myth over reality. People do, if anything, try to build up a fantasy facade in order to lead a happy life. The little girl in the video just depicts any naive person that seeks joy. These people are Hedonists. I'm sorry if my mind only interprets "face value", but on the "second level" it can only be seen as an opinion. I am neither disagreeing or agreeing with anything you have posted here (even if it may seem that way) but why is everything addressed as if it is a fact? we have yet to see what comes of this Band.

    As for the "mind control" inssue on a singular note, it is a possibility. But what I fail to understand is why would this video be about mind control, if every other video is mind control within itself. Why would the illuminati want us to know about mind-control upfront in a video, when they have been getting away with it slyly with symbolism? This would seem like they are degrading our intelligence. Personally, I do not see this as their win. What is there to win? The passive idiots that listen to this music…? That doesn't seem like much of a prize if you already have all the money and power you could want.

  309. @ kira- i used to think the same thing regarding why would they be so up in your face in most movies and with almost every single musician, if its supposed to be secret? If you read the Denver International Airport article, it doesnt get more in your face- this is going to happen, our future has been planned- than that- basically the time is now, it goes deep to the NWO order plans.. they are planning to change things sooner than later.. one world currenty and religion, the chip etc so they want us to get used to it so its smooth- the masons behind the govt created all these problems and then they are going to come back and say look with NWO its the best thing for everyone, they will make us think it is a fals attainment of peace, for ex whole thing with global warming and eating organic etc they plan to transform us into tree-hugging pagans, and obama with the ruthless spending is going to make the dollar worth Sh*t so there is no choice but to unite with other countries and have one world currency… all the health issues with insurance etc there is going to be one standard health system and all your info will be in the chip….. its going to be viewed as the best idea ever, to change all the problems in the world that governments started to begin with.. they used our televisions to bestow it upon us and get us used to it= ever wonder why every other freakin show is "reality" tv and contests… they want u to get used to the idea of being watched because you already had no problem watching others with all the reality bullcrap.. so slowly getting us used to things.. with music its going to be like well you already accepted things you listed to and watched on tv.. so they coming out with it faster than ever because nwo is soon to come, sooner than we thought… i wouldnt be surprised if these hollywood stars and singers are brainwashed to be party of the nwo army promised to live forever and have the world's money.. but too bad for them it won't matter by then because we will all be under totalitarianism under nwo…

  310. @Joe- you said the costume guy had 3 sets of wings.. well she had to choose from the wings they already planned.. its the people behind them….

  311. @ nyc gal.

    Where I live we have free health care, it is paid out of peoples taxes. Also, our currency isn't as worthless as the dollar yet. I still see currency as pricey even if it is worthless. Everything has it's cost, no matter if your dollar or yen or whatever is worthless, you still use it. The idea of having one currency seems like a better idea if anything out of this stupidity. It is only when you use that currency for the wrong thing, or it stands for something bad that it becomes horrible.

    I hate reality shows, frankly. What is the point of watching someone elses bad life when you have to live your own? I leave that kind of crap to the mindless people that just like entertainment. I know we are being watched. But this goes without saying – when have we ever been left alone?

    For the most part I'd like to believe that there isn't such organisation of what you said. That just makes it easier for everybody to commit suicide and give up a life that could have been good. Also, what is the point of being religious anymore? If there is a Benevolent, Omnipotent being that watches over this corrupt world, why aren't they doing anything in their will to stop it? Surely hell isn't big enough for everybody on earth.

    The only solution for this "new world" that is coming would be Anarchy. But even then, things would be a lot more worse. It is good to be aware of these things; just not when you are an extremist.

  312. Yeah I don't believe that this should be taken as propaganda, as Hayley's own description of her own lyrics clearly state otherwise. The interpretation of Mind Control is very plausible, however the chorus really doesn't fit this theme, and this article failed to analyze that section of the song.

    When compared to the very blatantly drenched with symbolism videos being put out by Lady GaGa, and Jay-Z and co, we can clearly see this is not in that same league. Paramore even refused to be featured on the pop culture juggernaut New Moon Official Soundtrack, just saying!

    The promo shot thing is very bizarre though, to me that's the only evidence to suggest propaganda.

  313. K i am 13 turning 14 and i'm a fan of paramore. First i'm not some emo goth chick or anything like that and i respect everyones opinon. But Even if this song is about "mind control" SO WHAT" your just not going to listen to it. I mean like if i like music i'm gonna listen to it no matter what the meaning. And I knew there was such a thing as mind control but this monarch mind control program is scary just saying. But did you ever thing hmmmm maybe paramore didnt even right it. And not all songs no not even song not everything has a meaning or at least not that deep. People overlook things alot. I think that ya maybe we should not listen to music like this but if it entertains us we are going to listen to it knowing the meaning or not doesnt make it a good song or not. And the symbol things i mean siriously get over it they could be doing a lot worse at least they are not doing the middle finger. And b4 i read this i didnt even know wat the hand over eye thang meant and i bet alot of teens/kids whatever dont know either all they know is that they like it. I think if you dont want your kids listening to this music then dont let them. Maybe try talking to your kids about and seeing how they feel. They probally wont even know. I myself was attracted to this song/music video by the alice in wonderland look. and that i am a fan of paramore and i saw the making of this video a while back. K thank you for reading this and i respect all pplz opinions happy holidays :)

  314. this is my 1st time stumbling upon such a site, well, besides wakeup project. nice interpretation though, but i think ur a little short on evidence, i mean ur 'reviews' are not so holistic i might say. anyway, great job in 'opening' people's eyes about the world of symbolism n occult.

  315. hey

    i actually thought Paramore were alright. this made me all paranoid on other like Evanescence, Metro Station, N-Dubz, Fall Out Boy and all those other artists that i love. im too scared to go check out their video's to see if they have occult symbolism and tht stuff and plus i probably wouldnt notice it anyway :S…i was wonderin if you would?

  316. as many of the people have said in comments below they are a Christian band and while that was a very well thought out article i wouldn't agree with it and i think that many Paramore fans also wouldn't agree. So if they are talking about mind control its to spread an awareness they are active with charities such as love146 so obviously see that the world isn't perfect. However, the cd is about the struggles that the band went through and many of the other songs on the cd show it like "ignorance" or "looking up" so i don't think they would have switched from band problems to mind control on one cd but that was a nice attempt to knowing Paramore.

  317. Unconvinced Believer on

    "Seems like they’re saying “This is what you get for trying to know your real self”."

    Or maybe, just maybe, they're saying "This is what you get for living a deluded life not caring to face reality"

  318. To be honest I was realy scared of this video when I watched it and it seemed realy freaky to me but I don't think that Paramore would try to do 'Mind Control' on anybody if thats what you mean but I realy don't understand anything you have said and its all balony to me but I am just a child, 11 years of age and I'm realy freaked out by this video. I don't watch the video I just listen to the song and even though I HATE the video I LOVE the song! It makes no sence!

  319. This Person who writes these articles is brilliant.No offense But ALL OF YOU IN DENIAL JUST BECAUSE YOU LIKE THE BAND are fucking retarded.Let me put it out there,Because they SAY there christian you dont know if its a cover up.You dont know SHIT.This Person is telling you the truth.Wether you choose to wake up and fucking listen to it or not.It goes to show why these celebrities are waving this in are faces Because they know there loyal fans wont beileve it.And there right Even when its smack in your face you cant beileve it.WAKE UP! Or learn the hard way.

  320. Your all with him when he talks about the black rap music stars,or anything else.Oh its paramore everything changes? i see why this is happening you dont know these people personally.So how can you be so quick to defend them They dont care about you.Probably dont even know you exist WAKE UP and smell the beans

  321. When ii was in the seventh grade durinq summer break my uncLe told me alL about this man on youtube who was a pastor taLking about Jay-Z and all the other Hip Hop artist who use subLiminal messages in their music. I believed iht because when ii listed 2 music weird thoughts always came into my head buh ii never madee a bigg deal about it untiL he showed me the video. I read a lot of is on this site &&&& ihtsss aLLLLLLLLLL starting 2 make sense. The Music Indusrty is fxcken crazy! There trying to get us to worship the fxcken devil nd shxt like dhat. Its sOOOOOO fxcken weird! I heard there was stuff like this in Disney CLassic Movies, aLmost alL of them. Like the HercuLes Movie with the scene dhat the chick (hercuLes qirlfriend) is sinqing andd the subLiminal Message is sayin stuff about fxckkingg the damn deviL. Back 2 music, ii aLways thought the Rihanna song Russian RuLette was about her B.S drama with Chris Brown, and!!! ii heard Chris Brown was part of that coLt shxt with his Song (FALLEN ANGEL) -you shouLd talk about that- and iM now 15 nd I'm amazed by alL this stuff because I ADORE music, ii wanted 2 work with music all my life , buh look aht these peopLee, && RealLy think about iht with MicheaL Jackson weird Death && the shxt he went threw | . . . How dha fxck did he die???? Wasn't he perfectLy fine?

    This shxt is crazyyyyy. !!!

  322. …Haha, that's real funny… mind control? Really? -.-'

    The members of Paramore don't worship the devil or any of that crap–they're Christian…

    "I believe its important to star young at heart, to have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current abilities or temporary means. However, there is a huge difference, to me anyways, between acknowledging your dreams and never living in reality.

Someone's safe place, even in a fairy-tale… you can't forge a refuge out of magic + fairydust. You gotta build it just as real and as solid as a stupid old brick" <<Directly from Hayley Williams' journal entry on the song.

  323. this shit is bananas on

    Somehow everything's gonna fall right into place

    If we only had a way to make it all fall faster everyday

    If only time flew like a dove

    Well God, make it fly faster than I'm falling in love

    This time we're not giving up

    Let's make it last forever

    Screaming "hallelujah"

    We'll make it last forever


  324. Dude seriously get over your life.

    Let me tell you a story. One time, this man wrote a poem about how after it had snowed, one red bud poked up through the blanket of white. It was short, only about two lines long, and a university asked permission for it to be studied as part of an English Lit course. He accepted, and after about a year, some of the essays were sent back to the author, and they were FILLED with so many different concepts and ideas, and they were all false. He wrote back, saying that there was NO SYMBOLOGY INTENDED. It was a poem about what could be seen, and nothing else. No metaphors, nothing.

    Overanalysing can be good at times, but you have taken it way too far. Seriously, get over yourself. If anyone from Paramore ever saw this they'd probably think you need someone to help you sort yourself out. You're crazy. Please get help and stop spamming the internetz with your pretentious bull.


  325. Wow can you say "Paranoia"??? That's ALL I see when I read this article. I was lead to this site by a post by a friend on facebook.. Here is what the post read:

    "If you love the Lord and respect truth and virtue, and you have kids or grandkids—PLEASE don't let them listen to Paramore. Watch this EXCELLENT analysis of their video, "Brick by Boring Brick." These symbols are NOT by accident and the entire video tells a horrifyingly brutal, but TRUE story—sadly a story FINANCED BY OUR TAX DOLLARS!!"

    I am a 33 y/o woman who will have to say that I listen to Paramore and similar bands, yet I do LOVE the Lord, I do respect truth and virtue… Somehow though seems that if I listen to the lyrics of Paramore, I am supposed to feel differently..

    I just feel like things have really been taken out of context… BIG time!!! Again, can you say "Paranoia"????

  326. i think you have it all wrong about the band people im not saying that they wouldnt sing about tis its just that they are a very christian band.

  327. First, you should not talk without knowing the history of the band, the significance of the butterfly with its wings broken off, and still more the meaning of the song.

    You should not talk without knowing well the meaning of things, like the meaning of the butterfly or the meaning of the video. Maybe you see all these things because you feel identified but not the band.

    The song explains the communication problems that took the band, everyone was in their world thinking that he alone was right and then realizes that the truth had problems and that if not resolved would continue living a lie, simple as that is the subject of the song. It's like the movie Bridge to Terabithia. And if you control the mind, "do not you think that they would have more fans, or would be world famous from his album" All We Know Is Falling "?

  328. you can write a fair on


    I couldnt agree anymore!

    many of you would believe anything you read, its truely sickening.

    paramore using mind control? really? you all believed this so easily seems like someone is controlling your minds as

    hmm.. well i guess im pretty much screwed from here ..paramore must truely have me on a tight grip for me to say I LOVE THIS BAND!!!
    enjoy the video! :) :-p

  329. GAbrielle the Angel on

    People stop crying, No, it can't be they are Christian or they are my favorite group" C'mon this group is throwing TOO MANY signs, the eye thing is enough. now the real question comes are they puppets or are they enlightened 2 what is goin on. Most are puppets but some know, like Jay=z. Now that man knows and that is even more scary. They are preparing us 4 the new world order, getting our brains ready,then the body will follow. Only those in christ will either escape or be matydom-either way with Him you win.

  330. Did U know that in vampirick rituals when priests build sacred space they mention "brick by brick" in their prayer?

  331. Wow… this is what people call paranoia, while I do bealieve there are people trying to establish a NWO, this is just a good band, with good lyrics…

  332. Ana,

    Exactly… That's why I said "Paranoia"… That's all this is… I think I remember in the 80's (showing my age now.. lol) that we were lectured that if you played some records (such as albums by Kiss, etc..) backwards there were subliminal messages… Well, when you did, it was just jumbled up CRAP… I am not saying there's no such thing as a sumbliminal message, they are out there EVERY where, like the Toyota comercial that you just can't seem to get out of your mind because they play it 200 times a day… So again, I feel that this article is PURE paranoia….

  333. So. Idea. Usually new CDs by groups as popular as Paramore are widely advertised among the teenage world. Being part of that world myself, you'd think I would have heard of Paramore's new album. But no, I heard nothing. None of my friends have, even the one who is a crazy Paramore fan. So maybe… the music industry didn't advertise because Paramore is warning us of Monarch Programming while all these other artists are sending us subliminal mind control messages. Just a thought :)

  334. Before lucifer was cast out of heaven he was Yahweh's muse. The angel of music. He was made with perfect talent. This is why he uses music as his message board. Humans are not capable of writing music with subliminal messages, but a muse can. This specific band paramore has all the calling signs of an occultist group. They possibly are too blinded to even know. In the Bible it says to beware of wolves in sheeps clothing. This means to beware of people, bands, politicians, whoever claims to be christians and seekers of the truth when there agena is alot darker. Sometimes things can be so obviouse that no one notices because we have been blinded bye deceite. The biggest deceite lucifer has produced is convincing mankind that he doesnt even exist. Remember that satan is not concerned with the people he has already decieved. The main focus is on those that he hasnt yet. And I dont think there are many. He wants all souls as he has the delusion that he is superior to Yahweh. Satan does not love you, he hates your guts, you are a creation of the most High God Yahweh. Have you ever wandered why it is easier to do the wrong thing than it is to do the right thing? We are in satan's realm here. If this post offends anybody… then that is your prerogative.

  335. Thanks Still-Loves-Paramore :)

    I have even found a small interview on this song and their album from 'Rocksound' Magazine.

    They interview Hayley Williams :-

    Is the entirety of 'Brand New Eyes' about the struggles that Paramore have faced in the last couple of years?

    ''The first three songs are about the band form my perspective but the guys were so involved in the writinng process that the record is more like a shared story of the last two years.(since their last album) Even tracks like 'feeling sorry', which is not about any of us, still reflects our shared experience. That song is about friends either in collegge, figuring it out for themselves or just sitting at home.We are on that road, working and doing something we love and that song is about trying to provoke the passion in someone else.''

    What is Brick By Boring Brick About?

    ''It's about not accepting reality and understanding that you don't have to make everything frilly or pretty- sounding for it to be interesting. Life doesn't have to be some grand production and some of the boring parts of being alive are actually the greatsest. It's about breaking down those walls and finding out that the centre of it is what really matters.''

    Peace out!

    p.s oh but i wouldn't do the peace sign…

  336. The System?

    I followed your article up till that point. If anything, the band is against mind control – as previous posts say – this album is about the band going through a rough patch and what they were feeling. It's outlandish to make such an assumption.

    "Mind control" is a popular theme, no doubt, but that's pop culture – going along with trends and fads. The Paramore band members are normal people, like anyone of us – there is no "System" – they want their music to be loved, same as any band – and they can accomplish that by going with trends. It's how records are sold. Get back on your rocking chair.

  337. Chris December 5th, 2009 1:52 pm :

    … Vigilant, these articles are brilliant, but what do we have to look forward to? I’m literally asking, is there any hope? They’re slowly swallowing EVERYTHING.

    Yes there is hope. There's only two sides to all this despite the overload of seemingly conflicting occult entities. There is the deception of satan that overarch's the illuminati, freemasonry and all false religions etc etc etc… and there is Jesus. The Bible is not a large book. It was designed to be understood. God knew before the foundations of time that you would be asking the question you just have and He has provided the Bible to specifically answer it for you and to tell you about the provision He has made for you.

    Read a Bible and a good study guide. Make the Bible you read a King James version (or a New KJV if the thee's and thou's do your head in)


  338. you know what all these people really are? they are satanists ,heres the kicker the are not who they appear to be , they are dammed souls, living in the body of who that person used to be. There are millions in the united states, you ever wonder why everyone is sop wicked and flashing satanic signs all the time? it is because they are satanic and not who they appear to be, it is true ,it happens when someone goes in for an operation and they get there soul driven out by electric shock.

    There is a heaven and hell and we are near the end of time, pay attention for yourself take a good look at everyone and you might start to see , one other thing ,they can read your mind, all sound crazy? it is not and if you pay attention you will realize it is true.

    these "people" will lie to the ends of the earth to protect there activities, like many of the people that post comments here, it is all very real. God will get them in the end ,there activities are futiile

  339. Thank you dday! These people treat these celebrities like there so high up above THERE NOTHING BUT SELL OUTS! regular humans who sold out For fame and fortune if you dont know this band personally you dont know what the fuck is going on in there hearts and heads.Stop defending people you dont know because thats exactly what they are.JUST PEOPLE.Everything he says makes sense wether you choose to like or beileve it or not.And if you do not like it you shouldent be on this site?Dont come here hating on what hes trying to inform us acting like hes the one crazy when its you for defending someone SO HIGHLY you dont even know.They have got you under a spell and you cant take the fact hes trying to tell you.Wake your asses up before its to late is were i leave of.

  340. there not humans ,the are devils , be observant and you will see for yourselves, the people who defend all the celebrities and media people are not human either, these people are DEVILS, for real I mean, nyphilium(google it) , they are not people , and they are not aliens, they are dammed souls reincarnated at the end of time, it happened before , before the flood ( noah arc) and it happened again, all of these satanic beings think we are to stupid to figure it out , so they are brazen , they are NOT people, they just look like people. They didnt sell out to Satan to be famous they did it because they are what I say

  341. An Observant Paramor on


    I agree completely with you.

    Vigilant, you should have really done more research on the band, album and song before you wrote this article. They are still so young and they are Christians themselves, and if someone were to tell them about this "Monarch Program" they would be scratching their heads. As the hand symbols are concerned, you may be right in their meaning, but they're very popular and most people, including the members of Paramore, are ignorant to their meaning because it's so widely used in the rock world, so do not accuse them of using it for evil purposes, because most teenagers use it too. What, are they evil to? No, just ignorant.

    Please, before you write anymore articles, do more research on what you're writing about, because this article is very misleading and inaccurate.

  342. I was kinda following you with Gaga and Rihanna, but I honestly think this is too far. You can find symbolism in absolutely ANYTHING. The funny thing about symbolism: it's for you to interpret. A smart person such as yourself could just as easily see that this video needs no analyzing, if you try to look any deeper below the surface than you will only find what you set out to find in the first place. I think it's slightly biased, for lack of a better word.

  343. Personally, I'm a great fan of Paramore ever since I heard "Misery Business" and since i'm young too, i never paid much attention to those videos. As I grew older, i managed to realize the truth of our surroundings and started to feel more curious about what happens now. Still costs me the fact that Paramore are becoming like many other bands who use symbolisms as publicity without giving a "Bologna Sandwich" for the consumerists.

    Odd as it is, it is true. But it is true that a strong mind can always fight against incoming threats or harming messages, no matter where they come from. So, people, there's no need for being scared and all paranoid about what you hear and see. Keep a strong mind and always remember: Mind is a Man's Strongest Asset.

    • OK, for the last time: I HAVE researched that group and even though they claim they are Christian, that doesn't take away from any of the symbolism in the video. The video was directed by Meiert Davis. He is the one who've added that symbolism.

  344. @An Observant Paramore Fan

    I also agree that vigilant should have done more research on the band, i am a paramore fan, but i will delete them off my playlist in a heart beat if i found out they were associated with this illuminati/mind control thing. I'm 18, since the beginning of december :).. i'm young & i still don't know half as much as others a lot older than me do about this, but i'm doing my research & i'm asking other people to research it also, because my mission was to prove These people wrong..I also thought it was crazy talk.. but i had a difficult time doing it, because i'm a pretty observant person & the proof is right in front of our eyes… the symbolism once you know it's there you notice it.. EVERYWHERE. and don't say that they are too young to be a part of this because they are around my age, plus a few years & they also have people around them saying what they should do & controling their every move.. you aren't on the inside, therefore you don't know if their next step could make or break their career & if they are passionate about this or taken in by all the fame and fortune they could be young and naive and make the wrong move… sell out.

  345. many satanists claim to be christians, by the way vigilante this all goes much deeper, there are many nonhumans

  346. many satanists claim to be christian, by the way vigilante this all goes much deeper ,these people are not only satanists , but satanic, not human

  347. An Observant Paramor on


    Okay, I understand, it's just you said that Paramore themselves have been recruited by the Illuminati, of which I highly doubt. You may be right about Meiert Davis though – because I don't see Paramore themselves incorporating symbolism into their videos. The song, on the other hand, has nothing to do with mind control.

    "A brick is such a traditional, tired and plain boring representation of solidity. I wanted the whole song to have this sort of fairy tale vibe… only to twist the point I’m trying to make in the song which is, ‘Stop living in a fake fairytale… like, WAKE UP!’ When thinking how I could really get that across in the song I decided I’d use a house. Someone’s safe place, even in a fairy tale… you can’t forge a refuge out of magic & fairy dust. You gotta build it just as real and as solid as a stupid old brick.” – Hayley Williams, brand new eyes Deluxe Edition Journal

    For the record, I completely agree with you on your analysis of Lady GaGa. I knew something was never right about that chick. I guess it was the holy spirit that led me to stay away from her music (even though after one listen, I couldn't get Bad Romance out of my head). xD

    PS – I have this add-on called McAfee SiteAdvisor, and your site has a yellow (!) warning on it. Why would that be?….

  348. Okay, ive heard EVERYTHING ppl have to say about this but my question is Can i still listen to their old album, when they werent in the MK thing????

  349. you can write a fair on


    i dont think you have to ask anyone this but yourself.. i have every Paramore album there is and many of the songs have good messages so its all up to you, aslong as you know theirs a limit to all of this and that at the end of the day God is the only answer!

    BTW All We Know Is Falling was and still is their best album!


  350. Err…at first I was like oh no! not Paramore, but then I kept reading and noticed a flaw. You didn't print the chorus because it contradicts what you've said.

    "Well make sure to build your house brick by boring brick

    or the wolves gonna blow it down

    keep your feet on the ground

    when your head's in the clouds

    Well go get your shovel

    And we'll dig a deep hole

    To bury the castle, bury the castle"

    Basicaly saying you've got to get rid of childish fantasy – the 'castle' – and start building your life out of stable things like bricks even if it's 'boring', just like the third pig did in the story of the three little pigs and his house survived the big bad wolfe. So infact the song is talking about the opposite of what you've said. It's saying get OUT of dreaming about fairytales.

    Also the monarch butterfly has got to be the most COMMON butterfly used. I've used it in my art work hundreds of times does that mean I'm a part of the luminati?? It was nominated in 1990 as the national insect of the USA.

    As for the hand gestures she's not even doing them right, which means she probably doesn't understand them and is just doing them because of fashion, as you said not many people know about these things.

    And FYI the 'a-ok' sign is also used by divers…huh they must worship satan aswell…

    And how can you say that about Alice in Wonderland it's a book written in the 1860's??

  351. Also I don't think you're looking for the truth in this article you're just trying to prove a point, so you're not looking at the whole thing…have you run out of artists to write about?? is that what this is…seriously??

  352. the last thing I have to say is Paramore didn't even make the video themselves!! the director did everything!! If you saw the interview Josh said that they wish they could have done the video themselves and direct it by themself!! The whole band agreed!!

  353. stupid morons! who honestly belives this stuff? idiots, thats who. you guys are the mind controllers. i would cuss you out but i wont waste my time!

  354. Wow… I guess I needed something to make me laugh – thanks for that. It really is amusing how some people will dig desperately for anything to fuel paranoia about conspiracy theories… did it ever occur to you that this is a bit hypocritical? If this were true (no doubt it is – all those pictures and the ideas you strung together just can't be wrong!) then Paramore aren't the only ones trying to brainwash people.

  355. oh, haha. i'm sorry, but this is hilarious!! Paramore….mind controllers? BAHAHA. and all these comments…people listen to you like you're God, Vigilant. it's like a cult around here. i hope you use that power for good in the future. and as for the article, props for coming up with all the backing arguments. you clearly spent a lot of time on it. i just think it's really, really funny.

  356. whether this is true or not (it's not), and whether i believe it or not (I don't), this article has put a bad taste in my mouth for the song. now everytime i listen to one of the best songs by my favorite band, i'm going to think about Monarch Programming.

    THANKS so much

    …i don't know how i could possibly live without this VITAL information.

    i hope u tasted the sarcasm there

  357. I think you are sadly mistaken. I do not think that Paramore of all people would write a song about a mind control slave. You really worked on this, fitting all the little bits and pieces and moving them just right so they look like they work. But really, this is just like a puzzle. If you have the wrong piece it doesn't work. You have misguided information, and I'm sorry but this makes no sense and it's the wrong piece.

  358. All I am going to say is I completely agree with chainmaker, gnome & lily blake.. Although, I am only 17 years old, so probably not as educated about this topic as a lot of the people posting, but I have been doing my research for a couple months now & my whole goal was to prove this theory is false, but the more information that i found, the more I started to see how it all made sense & fitted together.. too well for it ALL to be coincidences. Whether you believe that some of the people that are in our goverment or entertainment industry worship satan or not, or maybe even if you don't Believe in satan Or God, you cannot deny that there is something shady going on. take the blindfold off your eyes! my mom worked at the capitol in sacramento, california & she worked with a lot of bad people. My mom was not the greatest person then either, she was into drugs & she did drugs with some people you wouldn't believe.. people you assume you should be able to trust.. not only that.. get this: there motto-"keep the masses stupid"

    Jimmay: 9/11 WAS an inside job.. it doesn't take a genius to figure that one out. Many people who were there, that have absolutely no reason to lie have said that they heard an expolsion from below mere seconds BEFORE the planes crashed into the buildings and can you explain how for the FIRST time in history they couldnt find the black box flight recorders that would have told us everything that happend that day… what the terrorists were saying, what language they were speaking, what the pilots were saying, what they were saying to the people on the ground.. they found TINY little bones to identify the bodies of the people that died but missed 4 big black boxes?! I don't think so… it was a false flag attack on americans by americans to scare us so we run to our government asking ''what do we do next?'' ''protect us!'' all these people that testify that were THERE have yet to recognized, you'd think that the government would WANT to hear their stories yea? one man analyzed dust from sept. 11th & said there was residue of an explosive & after he told about his findings he was forced to leave his job..hmm this kind of explains why building 7 that was NOT hit by a plane collapsed the exact same way & just as fast as the buildings that were & that was not as easy building for these ''terrorists'' to get into to. why they distroyed the evidence so quickly.. i would think with something as serious as this, our government would want to examine that as much as possible & keep looking until they found those black boxes, but no they were in a hurry to get it out of there… and they say it's because they didnt want people to have to look at everyday & be reminded? bullshit! people wanted to know exactly what happened! they never got the real answer! Baaaa that's what sheep say and that's basically what you are, so lemme hear it BAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  359. @ cmartine14: Watched that ''Died another day'' video as well… Creeeppyy. I gotta say people who watch all these videos & deny the connection are lying to themselves. also i would like to know why all of the sudden celebs Rihanna & lady gaga (maybe others, but these are just the ones i noticed) think it's cool to start putting songs out about Russian Roulette, a suicidal game! lady gaga first mentioned it in ''poker face'' & now rihanna has a whole song about it & I have to say I didn't even know what it was until I googled it.. but it's sick & a scary thing really! don't you think now kids are gonna be like oh Rihanna plays it so i wanna try it(even if she doesnt they may think she does or shes Glamorizing it anyway) kids & teens think they are invincible.. i should know i did at one point also! they act without thinking about consequence. and rihanna goes on 20/20 talking about how she KNOWS there are millions of young girls that admire & wanna be like her, so she leaves her abusive relationship.. yea yea… what about dressing like a hooker & singing about such horrible things! what about that???

  360. Oh wow, Vigilant. Paramore uses symbolism in ONE of their videos, and they're immediately mind controlling, and Illuminatis?

    I call bull. That band is very religious.

    I believe you with Jay Z, and Rihanna.

    But Paramore? Really? They're good kids. Come off it.

  361. i have to say, i appreciate what you're doing here my friend, but some people here have made a good point. You can't just listen to everything people tell you… whether it be the government, the news or even this site here, take in what he says & research it until you discover the truth for yourself. I am a HUGE paramore so i gotta look into this a little more for myself.. but all you going ''vigilant what do we do now? we cant listen to any music anymore'' c'mon.. you have to think for yourself thats the WHOLE POINT! I did try to ask hayley williams, the lead singer of paramore, to read this article & speak up about it, but no response.. go figure.

  362. It is the same for the movie Labyrinth (The title already speaks for itself) and just about every Walt Disney cartoon that brings the young naive mind to a 'Fantasy Landscape…Disney's Fantasia has these dark scenarios as well…. Avatar movie hounds on Mother Earth Godess GAIA, pagan chantings and Fallen Angel Hybrids of The days of Noah (Book of Enoch), etc.

    The Movie 300 distorts who The Committee of 300 /Olympians/Illuminati/Elite/Establishment really are and portray Xerxes as evil when the bible accounts is the opposite…

    Certain Hollywood movies do portray an 'Almost There & Yet Not Quite There' scenario or character of a person just to do a 'Cover Up'………

  363. I'm typically completely with you, but in the case of Paramore, I know the intent is more so speaking against the system. They use various symbolism as a sign to the system that they are well aware of its existence, but wont fall into it. The thing about this programs symbolism is that most of it only warps Biblical symbolism, which Paramore is very familiar with and, they have always sprinkled symbolism in favor of God/Jesus in their music and concerts. Particularly in the song 'Let the Flames Begin' which is one of the more popular of these songs. But definitely speaks of how the world, nay-sayers, and kingdom of the enemy [devil] will try persecuting God's children in the end times (which they identify themselves as by using words such as 'us' and 'we'.)

    Having started the journey in this industry at such a young age, I know they have been exposed to its inner workings. I believe however, that they are wise enough to know that all of this shall soon come to a head, therefore they are addressing it early, even if the teeny boppers and their parents don't get it now. They will eventually. When their 'eyes are truly opened'.

  364. just remember – directors and writers usually create the scripts and shoot the shots.

    also, don't underestimate the potential for ideas and concepts to transmitted from one place to another ….. and I'll leave it at that for you to discern.

  365. I am new to all this, and it comes as a great shock to me…

    You can have a go at people for trying to put your views in the wrong. But i think the main reason this infact is happening is because, like me, people are new to this information and so therefore it scares them and they want to find any "point" or "evidence" to prove you wrong purely to feel better themselves.

    James, a concerned… Citizen (Pondering that title in this world)

  366. And in addition to my comment…

    The discovery of the, lesser known to the general public, "illuminati" has taken away all the guilty feelings of downloading music "illegally" as, if true, this money goes straight towards the expansion of them and/or their technology.

  367. Alright, I have to ask the question that no one seems to have brought up yet:

    WHY is the Illuminati using "Mind Control"?

    Mind you I think this is all a load of bullshit and arguing with idiots only makes you an idiot yourself, of course. However, just on the off chance that I am wrong and Vigilant is right (hahah), someone please tell me WHY the Illuminati is using Monarch Programming? I'll I've seen on this site is "Don't listen to this artist, they're bad and use mind control!" but no one ever really says where that's going. Does the government want everyone in the country to start eating more vegetables? Do they want to turn us into an army of soldiers to complete their tasks of world domination? I mean… it's easy enough to point out every symbol of the sun or an eye and say it's about Ra or Horus, or taking everything with a butterfly (a universal symbol for change and luck, by the way, not mind control) and saying it's a reference to Monarch Programming, or taking everything with two pillars holding up and arch (because apparently nobody realizes that the only way an arch can stand alone is if it's supported by two pillars) and saying it's a reference to an esoteric Illuminati symbol…

    Anyone can do all this and say that the mainstream media is using mind control, but unless you've got anything as to what they want to control our minds for, I have to remain skeptical.

  368. the hole i believe is for her to come out of her fantasy world because u said castle is one of the words that r used for the mind control so burying hopefully would help get rid of it she is trying to save her probably

  369. You're an idiot, Vaginalint. Why do you want to scare and confuse people like that? So you can get more hits on your retarded website? Gimme a break here.

  370. The thing I find most amusing about all of this is that while the author attacks mind control, most of the people who read this blogs are puppets of the author. Comments such as "Now I have another thing to delete off my iPod" show that while people are trying to rebel against mind control, they're not strong enough to do so, as they're ultimately being controlled by someone anyway. In this instance, it just so happens to be the author of the article in most cases.

    I should also mention that taking what the author has written for gospel is amazingly ignorant. The written word, whether it be lyrics from a song, a novel or even a magazine article, can have many meanings, and each person my interpret it differently. The fact that people are willing to abandon their own ideas of what the lyrics of song means in favour of just agreeing with what someone else has written in what will forever be an open debate is baffling.

  371. JustPassingBy on

    this is amazing, i was actually very curious to the meaning of this song, and you've broken it up piece by piece and helped me to understand. There are alot of different pieces of "analyzised" work on this song, but all just seem so shallow, whereas you've completely scanned through the song. Such a dark meaning, who would of thought through just listening to a catchy song…

  372. all u ppl r blind ok with the negative comments when we approach the end of times n u c the whole world is entirely corrupt u will rem everything u said n how u didnt believe but its ok God said many are called but few r chosen so go ahead dont take heed just rem someone made U!n then your creator will come to judge n when he says to “depart from me i never knew you”i hope u have a good save altho it wont work.just be aware please read your bible you will understand what this person is trying to tell us.

  374. Hayley Williams explained to Kerrang! magazine that, “this song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they’re living a fantasy life. It’s one thing to have goals and dreams but it’s another thing when you never know where you’re standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that.” She also added: “Brick By Boring Brick is about not accepting reality and understanding that you don’t have to make everything frilly or pretty-sounding for it to be interesting. Life doesn’t have to be some grand production, and some of the boring parts of being alive are actually the greatest. The song is about breaking down those walls and finding out that the centre of it is what really matters.””

    (Source Brick by Boring Brick Songfacts).

  375. Im actually a high-schooler and since the first time i saw the video i knew that it was related to mind control, i've been doing research about song meanings and I found it very interesting

  376. Jack Just Jack on

    I feel like you may have went in depth more than you should. What your saying makes sense and relates quite well, but I don't think that's what the band intended it to mean. Here's a quote I found from the lead singer, Hayley:

    "This song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they're living a fantasy life. It's one thing to have goals and dreams but it's another thing when you never know where you're standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that."

    In the deluxe album booklet, she wrote:

    “I believe it’s important to stay young at heart. To have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current ambitions or temporary means. However, there is a huge difference, to me anyways, between acknowledging your dreams and never living in reality. Some people are so scared of being boring— so insecure with who they might be— that they build up this huge lie, it’s all one big distraction. For not only the on-lookers but for their self. To me, it is a selfish way to live. A great means of defense. But selfish nonetheless. I’ve been hurt by this lifestyle. Hurt by people I barely know. I’ve even been guilty of living this way. It’s so common. I’m glad that I’ve found some words to finally speak up about it.

    A brick is such a traditional, tired and plain boring representation of solidity. I wanted the whole song to have this sort of fairy tale vibe… only to twist the point I’m trying to make in the song which is, ‘Stop living in a fake fairytale… like, WAKE UP!’ When thinking how I could really get that across in the song I decided I’d use a house. Someone’s safe place, even in a fairy tale… you can’t forge a refuge out of magic & fairy dust. You gotta build it just as real and as solid as a stupid old brick.”

  377. Jack Just Jack on

    Also, like some people have said, you should research the band before stating your argument.

  378. @ Maddie If Vigilant likes fishticks… well, that would make him a gayfish.


  379. While I agree with, or at least understand, the theory that this song is about mind control, you do force a few of the meanings into the song. "The prince raped her" is quite far-fetched and totally out of nowhere. The song does say it was a trick, but nowhere does it imply the trick was even implemented by the "Prince". In fact, the wording seems to support that the "trick" were just her own delusions.

    Also, 97% of adults? Where'd that number come from?

    Now I'm very much in agreement with that final quote of yours, and definitely can believe a conspiracy like this (Especially as an avid fan of George Orwell), but in order to make yourself a little more credible, you have to stop forcing some of this material in there. I've seen in other articles too. The message can be spread without jamming inappropriate or simply incorrect meanings onto things.

  380. Paramore are Christians. They are not a part of the Illuminati, or mind control.

    They wouldn't need mind control cause just about everyone loves their music. =}

  381. lol no prob Skye!

    Theres what is really going on and then there is stretching the truth and it becomes twisted so all i say is that you have got to be careful what you read and where the informations from.

  382. i dont get that whole one eye sybol thing youre tallking.

    she only covers her eye in two pictures.

    as my personal opinion, i think people look into things way too hard.

  383. i laughed. but really, if this is true, then i would honestly rather think what they want me to think.

  384. you're saying that the Illuminati fund a band and implant subliminal messages in the video.

    fine… now, why would they create a video that exposes practices that you'd think they'd be pretty keen to keep quiet about ?

    remember… this is a video in which they could use any kind of imagery to brainwash and influence the viewer, yet you're saying they choose to drop loads of clues about monarch programming (in this video) and in other videos they simply drop as many of their (not so secret anymore) symbols as possible, usually with a far vaguer message, but presumably just as an in joke between themselves.

    so Vigilant Citizen, why would a powerful elite go to great trouble and expense to try and expose themselves via pop-pawns to the public, when they could remain hidden and really try to manipulate us invisibly ?

    sorry, but your reasoning doesn't make any sense.

    (p.s. you've also overlooked the fact that most pop artists utilize dark imagery just to look 'cool' and to foster an aura of mystery)

  385. I have 3 questions…

    1. Why are they all doing this for? what's the goal? if we teenagers have absolutely no idea of hidden meanings and stuff like that, why would they even bother putting those stuff on videos?

    2. What kind of music should I Iisten to now? I mean, I was such a fan of Lady GaGa…is it bad to still listen to her music?…Now that I know this, what should I do? :S

    3. I'm from Panamá, my first language is Spanish. Do you think all those hidden messages in songs will get to people even if they don't speak English? Is it gonna be like a World Domination thing or what?

  386.,, and and jesuits.Do not trust wikipedia or the links on wikicompany articles.Good luck.

  387. @Laz

    I thought about this too. But the thing is is that the audience wouldn't read beyond the first level of meaning. They wouldn't associate this with the Illuminati whatsoever. Hell, most of them probably have no awareness of such a practice in the first place.

    So with that said, they can safely conjure these highly metaphorical symbols without any suspicion.

    Now, as for why they would even reveal themselves in any way, I think the reason is twofold. One, it's to allow them to be the Illuminati in the public eye without any sort of scrutiny. People look into Lady Gaga and Rhianna's radical changes in imagery as style, not conspiracy, and so now the Illuminati can safely act in the spotlight under the same guise.

    Also, it's as simple as desensitizing people and having them fall under the Illuminati agenda without them ever being aware of it.

    I only half believe any of this, since a theory so major as this means it's more likely to be untrue or exaggerated, but the clues are apparent and do make some sense.

  388. Man i hate this videoclip it makes me angry somehow, well its creepy and deep at the same time and maybe because of the fact of the little girl falling in that hole. But also something that made me curious that in the very ending the girl as grown up walks back in direction of the there any meaning?

  389. in my point of view when they buried her…it's like that shes buring the past….or trying to forgett, consciously or not ^^ very constructibel acticle^^ 5*

  390. so you think that a christian band that talks about praying and getting rid of their demons is satanic your pathetic you need to find something better to do with your time

  391. I just figured I should add this, and show you guys that not everything is demonic and satanic.

    Frontwoman Hayley Williams talked to Kerrang! about the meaning of the song.

    "This song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they're living a fantasy life. It's one thing to have goals and dreams but it's another thing when you never know where you're standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that."

  392. dude you got it all wrong its about Paramore being in a big world at such a young age good try but you just got it wrong if you want to know wat it means ask them on twitter

  393. hi

    im 16

    im emo, not the bartty depressed kind

    i love this song, and i had some speculations on the video so i was clear then i Googled it and came accross this site which confirmed my suspicions im also A HUGE FAN OF LADY GAGA, i am really glad u take time to analyze these videos, it doesnt stop me from listening to their music and i helps me to be more conscious of what im listening too and what the intent of the song and video truly is, keep up the good work and i hope people become more conscious of what their listening too and the true meaning of it.





  394. It's embarrassing to share the "Christian" title with so many self-righteous people that just love hearing themselves talk.

    Words from hayley herself

    I ♥ paramore!! :)

  395. The time has finally come everything that was foretold has happened . I probably sound like some crazy jackass but its true if you know the first thing about Dajjal /anti-Christ then it fits in so well that its almost ridiculously obvious. The eye of Horus is a major symbol of that and the pyramid eye but don't take my word for it just wait around and see for yourselves but don't a mindless victim of the brain washing media paving the way for mankind's very enemy.

  396. Omg are your serious im well13 and wow i was oblivious to the fact i didn't really know about that or anything dam not Paramore that's a disappointment.

    So in every way i frighten by the fact. I was curious about what it meant of course but it was always the ending that caught me off guard it just didn't get the part but like i said before i was oblivious.

    i had thought it meant

    that the girl thought that everything was a pretty fairytale and then she find out about the horrible truth about life how there freaks and stuff and a fairytale can be very scary. And she died thinking of that

    but seriously i never believed that I'm so mot a moron it didn't add up guess i was always right?

    thank you for the wake up call

    But still i love paramore i don't like this but still

  397. nd as the comment before said emo? ugh i hate the word i have seen emo and who there not depress or what not

    look on the fact Paramore is Rocking not i don't really thing this article is very well right but still paramore may have not meant any of this and yes there Christians and what of it?

    You know what, this is starting to get out of hand..

    Lady Gaga was fine because she didn't explain it clearly the meaning of her songs.



    THEY USED THOSE EFFING SYMBOLS TO MAKE IT LIKE WAtCHING A MOVIE BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE IT almost "LITERALLY" just because they used those symbols meaning they want to convey something SATANIC or whatever..

    But Paramore, GOSH, the meaning of the song is very clear and the reality what she is trying to convey."This song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they're living a fantasy life. It's one thing to have goals and dreams but it's another thing when you never know where you're standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that."


    STOP MAKING PARAMORE (not just paramore, but other artists as well) LOOK LIKE A DEMON OR SATANIC OR SOMETHING!

    Yeah, it maybe about Mind Control (according to Vigilant),

    but not even a KID WOULD CARE what the meaning of the song is!

    Andyeah, they used such symbols to make it look cool and PARAMORE just used those symbols to make it metaphorical to the meaning of the first layer. ANDYEAH, don't forget CINEMATIC

    And f*ck the hell would even think that music artists are a part of the ILLUMINATI.

    Like hell guys..

    Stop being so ridiculous.

  399. wtaf, this is probably the freakiest shit i've ever read. i literally laughed my ass of, please, paramore being a part of illuminati and that freaky mind contorolling shit? someone has been watching too much some wierd movies.

    as many people have already said, paramore is a christian band and brand new eyes is a about the hard times and not about Monarch Programming.

    and that “One-Eye Symbol”, well, honey, i can tell you, it IS just a coincidence. why don't you just ask straight from hayley in LJ or in twitter?
