i may never sleep tonight

Ryden Sun and Moon Theory

Contrary to popular belief, in my personal opinion, Ryan is the sun and Brendon is the moon. This is a theory a lot of people disagree with, but I’m here to explain why using song lyrics.

Album #1

Album that reminds me of Dark, #1: Panic! at the Disco’s “Vices & Virtues”.

Album Playlist Link: (x)

Explanation: So, the first thing that comes to mind for me is the pure ‘aesthetic’ of the album. The classy / pop / sultry sound and poetic lyrics just give me his vibe. (I could on about the strings for ages but I will spear your time.) 

But the style of it all! The way the music flows with such a niche of personality. It’s just so fitting of Dark! You feel like withered black rose petals are left in a trial. You can just feel the darker undertones under the idea of romance.

Lyrical Examples:

1) The Ballad of Mona Lisa (x)

“A lonely speaker in a conversation, her words are swimming through his ears again. There’s nothing wrong with just a taste of what you paid for.” 

– “Say what you mean, tell me I’m right. And let the sun rain down on me. Give me a sign, I want to believe.”

– “He senses something, call it desperation. Another dollar, another day
And if she had the proper words to say, she would tell him; but she’d have nothing left to sell him.”

“I’d pay to see you frown.”


2) Let’s Kill Tonight (x)

– “If I retreat words, wars, and symphonies. Make room - we’re taking over here. You’re the galantine. Cold and alone - it suits you well. Won’t find me perching here again.”

– “May your feet serve you well, and the rest be sent to Hell! Where they always have belonged.”

– “Cold hearts brew colder songs.”

– “Fate will play us out, with a song of pure romance. Stomp your feet and clap your hands.”


3) Hurricane (x)

– “Are you worth your weight in gold? ‘Cause you’re behind my eyelids when I am all alone.”

– “Give me peace. Oh, kiss me!“

– “You’ll dance to anything! You’ll dance to anything!!”

– “Oh, I confess, I confess. In a room where I am blessed.”

– “And I believe that half the time, I am a wolf among the sheep gnawing at the wool over my eyes.”

– “Fix me or just conflict me, 'cause I’ll take anything!”


4) Memories (x)

– “When July became December their affection fought the cold. But they couldn’t quite remember what inspired them to go.”

– “And it was beautifully depressing, like a street car named Desire. They were fighting for their love that started growing tired.”

– “Then the smile had finally faded from the apple of their eye.”


5) Trade Mistakes (x)

– “Placing a smile at the perfect event gracing your skin with the side of my hand. If I ever leave I could learn to miss you but “Sentimental Boy” is my nom de plume.”

– “Let me save you, hold this rope and I’ll pull you in.”

– “I may never sleep tonight as long as you’re still burning bright. If I could trade mistakes for sheep count me away before you sleep. I’ll stay awake 'til I trade my mistakes or they fade away.”

– “I am an anchor, sinking her.”


6) Ready to Go [Get Me Out of My Mind] (x)

– “You’ve got these little things that you’ve been running from. You either love them or I guess you don’t. You’re such a pretty thing, to be running from anyone. A vision with nowhere to go.” 

– “I think I’m ready, I think. I know I’m ready, I know.”


7) Always (x)

– “When the world gets too heavy put it on my back, I will be your levy.”

– “I am a fly that is trapped in a web. But I am thinking that my spider’s dead.”

– “Oh, the castle’s under siege but the sign outside says, ‘Leave me alone’.”


8) The Calendar (x)

– “Only for you. Only for you.”

– “They said ‘If you don’t let it out you’re gonna let it eat you away’. I’d rather be a cannibal, baby; animals like me don’t talk anyway.”

– “Put another X on the calendar summer’s on its deathbed.”

– “And I meant everything I said that night, I will come back to life. The world may call it a second chance. But when I came back it was more of a relapse.”


9) Sarah Smiles (x)

– “I was fine, just a guy living on my own, waiting for the sky to fall. Then you called and changed it all, doll. Velvet lips and the eyes to pull me in, we both know you’d already win. Mm, you’re original sin.”

– “Does she know that my destiny lies with her? Oh, Sarah, are you saving me?”

– “You fooled me once with your eyes now, honey. You fooled me twice with your lies.”


10) Nearly Witches [Ever Since We Met…] (x)

Mod: The whole fucking song, just the whole song. I removed most of my choices as it was the entire song. I keep the foremost Dark like.

– “My wing tips waltz across naive wood floors, they creak innocently down the stairs.”

– “My percussive feet serve cobweb headaches.”

– “Here I am composing a burlesque out of where they rest their necks. Sunken in their splintered cradles and ramshackle heads. They asked for it.”

– “You have set your heart on haunting me forever. From the start it’s never silent.”


11) Kaleidoscope Eyes (x)

– “I am a disappearing act done poorly but if I ever get it right, you will miss me sorely. I look like the cat that just ate the canary, coughing up feathers. There is a “get out of jail” card if I can think of something clever.”

– “I plead the fifth on all of this.”

– “My emerald city, downtown girl. In the sickness of you, I am just a white blood cell fighting like hell for you.”

– “Oh, I am just a crook, with no intent or stash, pour gasoline on the vault just to burn the cash. I swear to God, I would never heard a better sound coming out then when you are whimpering my name from your mouth.”

– “I have got an insatiable desire for your insides. It is undeniable, I will conspire and pull against your body tonight.”


12) Stall Me (x)

– “Fall to your knees and kiss the ring.”

– “A dark room in the wallflower garden of the party.”

– “You gave up on you and I gave up on me. Well, LOVE came along and said, “Leave them be”.”


13) Oh Glory [Demo] (x)

– “I can only hope it is true enough that every little thing I do for love. Redeems me from the moments I deem worthy of the worst things that I have done.”

– “Everything I promised everyone I would be; well I just ain’t.”

– “Lately it seems like everybody is sick everybody is dying … and only my heart knows my head is lying, lying.”

– “Take a breath to notice I am between every little piece of thread and memories that constitute your dreams.”


14) I Wanna Be Free (x)

– “The beat goes dry, and the spirit dies.”

– “Everything seems to be estranged when you’re alone.”


15) Turn Off the Lights (x)

– “I got so sick of being on my own now the devil will not leave me alone.”

– “Our consciences are always so much heavier than our egos.”

– “So I’m taking every chance I got, like the man I know I’m not.”

– “I need a little sympathy to disarm my insecurities.”

– “So shoot a star on the boulevard tonight.”

– “Turn off the lights, turn out the lights. Turn on the show for me tonight.”


16) Bittersweet (x)

– “I’m just setting, I’m just setting a trap.”

– “So many places that you might say I’ve seen it all.”

– “Everything I do is bittersweet. You could tell me secrets that I’ll probably repeat. I’m not trying to hurt you, I just love to speak.”

– “All that hate is gonna burn you up, it keeps me warm at night.”

“It’s such a mystery why you’re here (but I can’t live without you).”

@flxbber have a starter!

“Listen; have you heard about -?”

“Yes, another odd one.”

“He’s kind of got that uppity, learned folk look to him.”

“Ugh, not another one.”

When outsiders considered their little village, LeFou hoped that there was an undeniable positivity to their visions. Villeneuve was small, yes, but it bore a surprising elegance for being a little countryside settlement. It was self sustaining, and generally friendly, full of people used to years of cooperation. So many people in the village had true talent, and not a day went by that the streets weren’t filled with music.

But, even with his nickname being ‘The Fool’, LeFou knew that the kindness of these people could only stretch so far. Outsiders, for example, were not a particularly welcome sort. Having been born and raised in Villeneuve, LeFou had never truly experienced their prejudice against outsiders until Belle and her father moved into town, all the way from Paris. And now, it would appear that someone else had chosen their little patch of heaven to lay down their roots.

LeFou sighed, leaning back and gazing absently at the ceiling as he rubbed some of the tight knots from Gaston’s no shoulders. He said a silent prayer for the stranger that he wouldn’t have too much trouble settling in.

Take a piece of my heart
And make it all your own
So when we are apart
You’ll never be alone

You’ll never be alone
When you miss me close your eyes
I may be far but never gone

When you fall sleep tonight just remember that we lay under the same stars

- Shawn Mendes🌟

Hallelujah vs. Ryan Ross (?

well, first of all *cracks fingers*

if you haven′t listened to hallelujah then get the fuck away

and now!…as i now and figure, music is like poetry, which means it never means what is literally written sooooooo here we go

after smthng like 6 days of making my mind, i think i have an idea, maybe a theory about cape town and basically ryden but first….hallelujah

the song stars: A moment you’ll never remember
And a night you’ll never forget

ok, maaaaaaybe we’ve all noticed that in almost every song of TWTL, TWTD (to weird to live, to rare to die) brendon talks about a night…THE NIGHT which could be either cape town or seattle… but anyway..

i think that: moment you’ll never remember is because, maybe, they were drunk.. i guess

night you’ll never forget..well…how could you forget that right?

then the song goes:

‘My life started the day I got caught
Under the covers with second hand lovers
Oh, tied up in pretty young things
In a state of emergency
Who was I trying to be?’

Well, i’m pretty sure brendon already had his girlfriend/wife when either cape town or seattle happened, so….second hand lovers? People refer to ‘lovers’ when is not the ‘usual’ thing, or the official one *cofcofryancof* also, he says ‘who was i trying to be?’ i think this means that maybeee, he wasn’t sure about having something with a boy, sooo he didn’t know what was happening in his mind..

Then the time for being sad is over
And you miss ‘em like you miss no other
And being blue is better than being over it

Well…this couldn’t be any clearer…right? He’s basically saying, he’s done with being sad for ryan, he misses the band, and he’s responding to an actual question in one of ryan’s songs

(if you don’t know which song i’m talking about, is “Lie to the truth” from the young veins, and it says: I know i broke your heart
mine is broken too
now if we’re even
then why are we both blue?
)

so brendon answers with: being blue is better than being over it.

Now, Hallelujah keeps with:

I was drunk and it didn’t mean a thing
Stop thinking about the bullets from my mouth
I love the things you hate about yourself
Just finished a daydream
Who were you trying to be?

OK, as i said before, they were drunk…  and if you read only the first line, you might thing he’s talking about loving ryan, but then you keep reading..

stop thinking about the bullets from my mouth’ CLEARLY they had a fight… they said awfull things to each other…maybe… and brendon is apoligizing… (also, in one of ryan’s songs *cape town* he says: Woke me in the morning
asked me if i meant it (i didn’t)
so basically they both agree they didn’t meant to say the things they said) (also, another reference that it happened something in the night)

I love the things you hate about yourself’ …… do i have to explain something?

And then…. ‘just finished the daydream, who were you trying to be?’ nowww, brendon maybe is saying that is over, oveerr, ooooveeer yet it was like a dream…and also asks ryan the same he asked himself… what happened? what they were trying to be?

And finally:

No one wants you when you have no heart and
I’m sitting pretty in my brand new scars and
You’ll never know if you don’t ever try again
So let’s try
Let’s try
Let’s try

Maybe in here, brendon was trying to say that ryan should stop being so mean…or maybe he was saying this to himself *which would be good*

Then, he says: ‘i’m sitting pretty in my brand new scars’ this could be brendon refering to the way ryan hurted him, but now he’s fine and the wounds healed.

but ALSO he says: ‘you’ll never know if you don’t try again, so let’s try again

DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THE FACT THAT BRENDON IS MAYBE TELLING RYAN TO TALK HIM AGAIN?!?!?!??!

like… let’s try again…let’s…we…both of us….

Also, in: Casual affair (a song where brendon CRIED while singing it on SEATTLE), Far too young to die, Collar Full, The calendar, Trade Mistakes and OBVIOUSLY in Northern Downpour he refers to a night…spending with someone the NIGHT

If you don’t believe me, then:

Far too young to die: ‘Well I never really thought that you’d come tonight

Collar Full: ‘I’ve got a collar full of chemistry from your company, so maybe tonight I’ll be the libertine

Casual Affair: ‘Hey, a casual affair, that could go anywhere, and only for tonight

The Calendar: (a song brendon admited was about ryan leaving the band) ‘At night your body is a symphony, And I’m conducting

Trade Mistakes: ‘I may never sleep tonight, As long as you’re still burning bright

Northern Downpour: ‘Hey moon please forget to fall down ,Hey moon don’t you go down

Well, I know Northen Downpour was written before cape town, but ‘Cape Town’ from the Young Veins did not. And it says:’Woke me in the morning’

Soooooooo, my theory about Cape Town: They played, they got drunk (brendon and ryan) they went somewhere, the fought, said awful things to each other, maybe even said they didn’t meant nothing for each other… in the morning brendon felt bad, went to wake up ryan, talked and maybe apologized, maaaybe ryan said he loved brendon, as the song says ‘asked to be her husband‘ (he couldn’t use the ‘he’ in a song..so he’s talking about a girl’) and maaaybe brendon said no.. and then…they left…and now they don’t know each other…

tiltonightdouspart  asked:

what is your theory. please. please i need it in all its Fake Deep™ glory

ok so idk if this has been said b4 but i KNOW im not the only one thinkin it

i think that ryan viewed brendon as the sun and himself as the moon, and since ryan was the primarily lyricist for pre-split panic, it was reflected in the songs and then carried over to his solo work (the sun went down over my head, if you wanna see the sun etc) - all mentions of the sun in pre-split panic and post-split ryab work are easily applied to brebdon 

i also think that brendon viewed ryan as the sun and himself as the moon, and as he (with a bit of help from pete) became the primary lyricist post split that carries over as well (let the sun rain down on me, if the sun should lift me up, i may never sleep tonight as long as you’re still burning bright)

so basically i think that they viewed each other as the sun and therefor each of them saw themself as the moon, meaning while referencing ryan’s lyrics brendon IS the sun, but when referencing brendon’s lyrics it’s ryan

that is my Fake Deep Onion™
