Riff: Bullet For My Valentine – “Saints & Sinners”

Feb 12, 2013

Saint’s, don’t be afraid/Let it out, I wanna hear your thunder/Sinners, are you ready to rage

from Saints & Sinners lyrics by Bullet For My Valentine

Historically saints have had more of a revolutionary impact than sinners, which seems to fly right over the heads of BFMV. In just that little snafu they expose their indifference towards truth – a fundamental element in revolution.
