Transcript of Panic! At the Disco x Allegory

x Allegory Who is P!atd? Panic! At the Disco is an American rock band from Los Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2005. They are known for there Individuality and unique rhythm. Beginning as a simple high school band, the group had never performed a live performance. Yet, by a single email to musician Pete Wentz, the band released its first album in a little over five weeks which went platinum within four months. By there third album, the band ranked no. 2 on UK Rock Albums, US Billboard Rock Albums and US Billboard Alternative Albums. What is an Allegory? According to Greg Johnson, "an allegory is a story that has second meaning beneath the surface." Behind the the Obvious, or literal meaning, resides more abstract significance. "I Write Sins, Not Tragedies" Literal Meaning: A wedding,Oh, well imagine, as I'm pacing the pew in a church corridor..., being called off because the "soon to be" wife is cheating on the groom, ...But i cant help but to hear an exchanging of words, "What a beautiful wedding," says a brides maid to a waiter..." Rumor of intimacy: wife

Allegorical Meaning: I'd Chime in, haven't you people ever heard of closing the...door,I would make a scene to get you to stop talking about this woman, but this isn't the occasion to do so, a sense of poise and rationality,this needs to be handled with class. Overall the allegory is "mind your own business and keep the door closed; keeping the gossip to yourself." "The Ballad of Mona Lisa" Literal Meaning: A man meets a woman, who he calls Mona Lisa for her mysteriousness, and questions her intentions, ...takes a moment to assess the sin she's paid for..., but when he asks her, her answers are unclear,...Say what you mean, tell me I'm right...I want to believe... Soon he becomes desperate and tries to pay her for the answer,He senses something, call it desperation Another dollar, another day ; still, no direct confirmation, keeping the game going, And if she had the proper words to say, she would tell him But she'd have nothing left to sell him. Craving the truth he commits an act with her,Mona Lisa, Wear me out, and discovers the answer to his question.

Allegorical Meaning: There's nothing wrong with just a taste Of what you've paid for; this one line wraps up to the allegory "you cannot complain about the outcome of the truth you sought." "Build God, Then We'll Talk" Literal Meaning: A Lawyer is cheating on his wife, ...Tonight's tenants range from a lawyer and a virgin..., when the wife discovers this, she herself begins to cheat on him, ...There was a terrible crash between her and the badge...

Allegorical Meaning: Rain drops on roses and girls in white dresses, Characteristics depicting innocence, sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses, interacting with foul beings, not thinking much about it, at the shade of the sheets and before all the stains, innocence is tainted by the foul, thus staining the pure white color, add a few more of your least favorite things, it is something that is not approved of. Overall Allegory is "innocence and the foul are bound to interact whether we like it or not." Meant to Be? Though Panic! At the Disco contains songs that can be portrayed as allegorical, their true purpose is unknown. To seek the answer to such a question would lead to asking the band itself. In opinion though, we believe that specific songs, such as "Build God, then we'll Talk" and "The Ballad of Mona Lisa," were intended to be allegories, yet songs like "I Write Sins, Not Tragedies" are merely interpreted as allegories.
