-tattoo for my chemical romance with a lyric from the song our lady of sorrows

the lyric itself is if you would shed your yellow 
which continues [in the song]
take my hand and then
we’ll solve the mystery of laceration gravity


the crown is frank’s mary’s crown, and the switchblades are in reference for the lyric 
and cross the patron saint of switchblade fights 

the word ‘yellow’ in literary terms means cowardice, so the idea of stripping away my fears and having the guts to stand up to what i need to helps me get through a lot of things. this band has always been there when i fell, and the lyric helps me push through when all i want to do is crawl in a hole and hide from the rest of the world.
