This Is Gospel by Panic! At The Disco
Transcript of This Is Gospel by Panic! At The Disco
Part 1: The Surgery
0:00 - 1:19
- The background of the scene is entirely dark, drawing attention to the actors and their actions.
- The face of the protagonist (Brendon Urie) is half in the dark and half in the light, representing duality.
- The scene transitions from entirely dark to entirely light.
- The surgeons tape an X over his heart and attempt to cut it out, both physically and symbolically attempting to cut out his life force.
- He attempts to break away from those who are trying to hold him down and force him to submit.
- Their hands cover his mouth, trying to keep him from speaking out
Part 2: The Burial
1:20 - 2:06
- He is dressed in a suit and groomed to the standards of the hands that manipulate him.
The hands then drag him into a coffin, trying to force him to submit to them.
- He is shown to be wearing a pair of Converse sneakers with his suit, a symbolic "part of himself" that he manages to hold onto, even after being influenced by the hands
- The coffin fills with water, but instead of drowning, he bursts out of the confines.
Part 3: The Death
2:07 - 3:11
- He breaks through walls in an attempt to escape his pursuers.
- His shirt is opened to reveal a coiled rope that is then used to tie him up. Symbolically, this represents society using his individuality (what is inside) to restrain him
- He reaches his hands through the rope in an attempt to escape
- Rope flies around him as he runs away
- He approaches a light as he escapes the pursuers, symbolizing that he was only able to escape the suppression of his individuality through death
The overarching theme of the video is the suppression of the individual by society. The surgeons represent the sterilized society that can not accept someone attempting to speak out. They react to the protagonist's attempts to break free with hostility, restraining him and ultimately bringing him to his death.
