Transcript of Lyric Presentation- CENTURIES


by Fall Out Boy
Some legends are told

But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries

Remember me for centuries


No, it's nothing wrong with me
The kids are all wrong
The stories are off

Come on, come on and let me in

And this is supposed to match
The darkness that you felt
I never meant for you to fix yourself
And I can't stop 'til the whole world knows my name
Until you die for me as long as there is a light, my shadow's over you

We've been here forever
And here's the frozen proof
I could scream forever
We are the poisoned youth
Andy Hurley, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman, and Pete Wentz
(from left to right)

Some turn to dust or to gold
And just one mistake
Is all it will take.
We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

"Some turn to dust or to gold"
-career and fame

-legacy in music

-Fall Out Boy wants to be around for centuries

- describes the put downs they've been through

- being an "underdog" during their career life
I was only born inside my dreams
I am the opposite of amnesia
You're about to bloom
You look so pretty, but you're gone so soon
you're a cherry blossom
"I was only born inside my dreams "
"I am the opposite of amnesia"
"You're a cherry blossom. You're about to bloom. You look so pretty, but you're gone so soon"
Verbal Imagery
Metaphoric Literary Device
Effectiveness of the Literary Devices:

"I was only born inside my dreams"

"And just one mistake is all it will take. We'll go down in history"
"Remember me for centuries"
Effectiveness of the Literary Devices:
"Some turn to dust or to gold"
- referring to the legends
- forgotten like the dust on forgotten objects
- treasured like gold-shiny, precious, valuable
"And just one mistake, is all it will take. We'll
go down in history"
- history remembers those who didn't give up
- exaggerating the amount of mistakes
- mistakes may ruin your reputation for "centuries"
"Remember me for centuries"
- some are just here for a minute- "one hit wonders"
- wants to be the golden legend
- lives on in the hearts of fans
- advising others to accomplish their dreams and goals
Writer uses Verbal Imagery, making it effective at saying Fallout Boy wasn't free and alive.
The writer gives us an image of being alive when he does something that he's passionate about. Fitting into the whole song by giving the idea that Fallout boy wants to be freed and noticed.
"I am the opposite of amnesia"
Metaphor suggests that he will be remembered. Since when someone has amnesia; they forget everything. Fallout Boy then compares himself to be the OPPOSITE of amnesia.
It fits into the whole song: "remember me for centuries."

"We've been here forever"

"And here's the frozen proof"

"I could scream forever"

"We are the poisoned youth"
Metaphoric literary device


Verbal Imagery

Effectiveness of Literary Devices
"We've been here forever"
"And here's the frozen proof"
"Frozen proof" is verbal imagery because it gives you the image of the proof (this song) that's frozen and encased in ice forever, like it will forever exist.
personification because "frozen" an adjective is given to an in-animated object "proof".
Lastly, there's connotation which is proven by the word "frozen" it's a figurative symbol that symbolizes things that are cold, hard, and trapped.
"We are the poisoned youth"
"We are the poisoned youth" is a important line that sums up the song because its a effective metaphor that shows how they were effected when they were young.
Poisoned by the dream of wanting to become famous. They are entrapped in society's expectations for them. Always wanting them to release more songs, more albums, and hold more concerts
shows how our generation is being really negative about creativity, they don't really care anymore and are mostly after the money
Everything the song is about does not have to be about Fall Out Boy, it could be just them giving advice to the world and to sum things up, "Centuries" would be a song that tells others to enjoy life, aaccomplish things to be remembered by others. Like a legacy.
Hyperbole is a literary device used to exaggerate a word to give it more effect
exaggerated "forever" in this case.
No one can live forever, Fall Out Boy, the american rock boy band has existed for so long and it feels like forever to them.
"Heavy metal broke my heart."
"Mummified my teenage dreams."
"The bruises on your thighs like my fingerprints"
Mummified my teenage dreams
Heavy metal broke my heart
The bruises on your thighs like my fingerprints
Effectiveness of the Literary Devices
"Mummified my teenage dreams"
- put away dreams in order for
'real life' or 'adult hood'
"Heavy metal broke my heart"
- wanted to be musicians
- was doubted by others
- been told to give up
"The bruises on your thighs like my
double entendre
Double Entendre
"you're a cherry blossom. You're about to bloom. You look so pretty, but you're gone so soon."
The Author provides a Symbol to explain his message. Fallout boy uses a concrete object, in this case a flower, to portray a more abstract idea he is trying to give you.
Fallout boy says something you love does not always last. Like the brief magnificence of their glory and fame.
- worked hard
- drums and guitar caused injuries
