As many of you know, I am a HUGE Fall Out Boy fan! When I heard they were getting back together I had no choice but to get my ticket right away. In honor of the band’s return, I will take you through 5 days of Fall Out Boy leading up to their SOLD OUT concert in Columbus on May 17 for their Save Rock and Roll tour.
“Golden” by Fall Out Boy is one of my all time favorite songs, ever! This song is so beautiful and has a lot of meaning.
My interpretation of the song: we are taught at a young age to follow the “golden rule”, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (Matt. 7:12) but how is this a fair rule when people are constantly treating us like s*&%? Why should I treat this person with respect when they don’t give me any? It is a cruel rule, but it is how God intends for us all to behave. Because of this, when I look into the eyes of the enemy I see God, so I have no choice but to turn the other cheek and give them respect.
This song is short, which sucks, but I love it. Listen to it and check out the lyrics:
