Paramore's Monarch Internal World

Quick post on Paramore per an emailer's request (sorry for generally crappy slow responsiveness to emails by the way, been a hectic week for me due to non-blog stuff) as the video linked to is especially blatant I feel. The band have started picking up their use of Monarch and Illuminist symbolism in recent photo shoots/videos, now with this Monarch slave suggestive video for 'Brick by Boring Brick' which strikes me as a very Masonic sounding title (though I feel it is referencing 'building'/programming a 'stable' internal system if you read the lyrics, which is a long, laborious, boring process; so the structures don't fall apart and the whole system collapse [the lyrics reference a wolf blowing down the house; 3 Little Pigs is an extremely Masonic tale anyway, see my 'Disney/33 little masonic pigs' post]). I was fully expecting something like this though having seen their album cover (below) for 'Brand New Eyes' a few months ago (seeing something with "brand new eyes" has pretty obvious interpretations in terms of mind control). The butterfly is a tiger butterfly combining the two most commonly used animals [butterflies and cats] used in dehumanized sexual alter programming, it is pinned with it's wings divided/separated/split apart from it's body.

Here are it's 100% mind control symbolic lyrics which are probably worth a deeper analysis but you can pick up on it, if you understand dissociation and mind control it makes a lot more sense:
She lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind
It's all about the exposure the lens I told her
The angels were all wrong now
She's ripping wings off of butterflies

With her feet on the ground
And her head in the clouds
Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Ba da ba da ba

So one day he found her crying
Coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her
And the rest you can figure out
But it was a trick
And the clock struck twelve
Well make sure, to build your house brick by boring brick
Or the wolves gonna blow it down

With her feet on the ground
And her head in the clouds
Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
We'll bury the castle, bury the castle

Well you built up a world of magic
Because your real life is tragic
Yeah you built up a world of magic
If it's not real
You can't hold it in your hands
You can't feel it with your heart
And I won't believe it
But if it's true
You can see it with your eyes
Oh, even in the dark
And that's where I want to be, yeah

Go get your shovel
We'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Ba da ba da ba...

The video (directed by Meiert Avis, the band came up with the idea though; perhaps they've been reading too much MK material) portrays Hayley William's child alter personality working her way through her fairy tale programmed internal world. Hayley herself is portrayed on a swing (swinging back and forward/up and down, hypnotic/dissociative symbolic) as her little girl alter (coincidentally called Harley, that 'making of' video explains almost nothing by the way) runs past her (and the 'grave digger' who presumably symbolizes the programmer taking her "deeper and deeper" into a trance/programming [you'll notice there is a white rabbit in it confirming this symbolism], played by Josh Farro who Hayley had been in a "relationship" with until 2007). This post is very rushed, but here is my interpretation anyway.

She is holding a doll and wearing Monarch butterfly wings and goes through a gateway (accessing another part of the mind, upon entry the previous area is symbolically locked by the invisible programmer, that part of the mind now inaccessible to the alter only opened by the "key"/lock/trigger/code symbolized by the key disappearing into light dust).

The area/compartment she is now locked in is like a wilderness wonderland with fireflies or fairies trapped in glass jars (the symbolism comes up here too; she releases one and drops her doll), flowers and Monarch butterflies (she picks one up).

She moves out of the wilderness, progressing deeper into her internal world to a place with giant mushrooms (Amanita muscaria looking) symbolizing dissociative hallucination (+ drugs like that are often used).

Note the red chess piece by the Knight (blurred, to the left).

Alice in Wonderland is further invoked with a mad tea party type scene shown above (with a wolf-like man and an older lady), a Queen of Hearts (not strictly, but this is clearly implied by the heart shaped box of chocolates she uses to lure Hayley), more red/white spotted mushrooms (+gnome), even a Knight. These characters are guardian alters placed into her system to stop her from accessing parts (they are trying to stop her getting to the castle) that the programmer knows might be dangerous to her system (or could help to break out of the programming)

It's hard to make out some of the stuff in the video due to the blurred visual effects but the character to the left of the dwarf/gnome looks like the caterpillar (emphasized by it's relaxed demeanor, like the hookah smoking caterpillar on the mushroom in Wonderland).

You can see that they are guardians as they try to lure her in by offering drinks and such but she runs off scared of them (knowing they are there to stop her, they are essentially booby traps placed into her internal world to keep her in line) to the apparent safety of the castle. Where her goal seems to be, the castle represents a similar area to that of the Emerald City in Oz programming; castles are known to be commonly used as an internal structure contained in Monarch internal systems/worlds. This one acts almost like the 'hub' of the MPD system with all the mirrors giving access [when allowed/triggered] to the many alters contained in the system, the little girl appears to be trying to access and perhaps reintegrate with her core personality, the grown up Hayley as she is shown reflected in the mirror before the more severe guards chase her off.

Inside the castle is another predictable mind control scene with multiple magic mirrors as little girl Hayley is multiplied and then looks in the mirror (the reflection combing her hair, looking content and happy; how the programmer wants her to look but she herself isn't at all).

Multiple Marionette puppets exit the mirrors (above), then the scary gnome (from the mushrooms earlier) is shown.

Day turns to night (with lightning flashes) and the images become scarier, with a screaming lady (the Queen of Hearts from earlier who looks to be wearing some sort of mask/heavy silver makeup) who moves like a mechanical robot and appears to disintegrate or something in the mirror as the little girl becomes increasingly more disturbed and anxious, eventually her image disintegrates/turns to chrome (not sure how best to describe that) in the mirror.

The kinds of scenes portrayed in this video should be very familiar to those who have read up on Monarch mind control.

She removes the Monarch butterfly wings as a robber (black/white duality + mask) then a man wielding an axe, who reminds me of the Tin Woodsman due to his axe (this axe wielding guy is another Guardian alter; essentially 'comply with the programming or you will have your head cut off', if the alter comes too close to a part which would allow her more access to her system than the programmer wants the Guardian would scare/chase them back as is shown in this video).

She runs in fear (the axe wielding man forcing her to give up on her goal to reach her primary alter in the castle), exiting the castle through an archway into the night through a dead forest scene and into the wilderness area which you'll remember was locked from the outside (preventing her from accessing that compartment, which is now open as the guardians probably want her to reach the safety of the rabbit hole/grave), the wilderness encroaches on her as it comes alive/grows and tries to trap her.
She is able to get away, taking her doll with her and exit through the now unlocked door back to where her primary/core personality of Hayley is waiting, where it is constantly under the light of the sun; but the little girl has brought the darkness into this 'safe' compartment.
She manages to fall back into the hole (symbolic grave/rabbit hole, shown obviously by the white rabbit), still trapped 'deep' in the programming having failed in her attempt, it's quite a dark video. Adult Hayley, looking very sad picks up her porcelain doll and throw it into the hole with her.

The horns hand sign of course means "rock and roll" and nothing else, and is entirely innocent; ignore the fact that she's framing her eye with them... which adds no deeper significance at all. I did not do a hugely indepth search for their images by the way so probably missed some symbolic ones.

The band were given their major break (it's when I first heard of them anyway) with the main track for the first of those shitty Mormon vampire romance movies based on the books by Stephenie Meyer (I get that a lot of people like it but I found it painful to sit through, I had to stop before the end because I was drifting off which I rarely do in films. Having said that there is a fair bit of symbolism in the films and obviously on the book covers).

I have no time to go through all their videos but I had noted their lyrics to "Ignorance" (first single off 'Brand New Eyes' butterfly cover album), essentially telling their fans the truth (note the word TRUTH on the bass drum too [Edit: yes I am aware it is a drum kit manufacturer, I assumed it was originally but I have been told a few times now, it may have still been specifically chosen to portray a message, either way I still view it as pertinent], truth/light/illumination/Luciferianism), that "Ignorance is your new best friend" as Hayley waves an entirely non-symbolic light bulb in front of their faces as she is trapped in the tiny box room, it's just a light bulb right? Stop being so paranoid! ;) Note later on the strobe/flashing lighting, then she enters a symbolic infinite mirror type thing (various size/shaped mirrors all around her) as she acts insane and dissociative, going "out of her mind" (with crazy hair [or horns/animal ears] and some kind of white jumpsuit with random black zippers ["unzipping" alters also 'splitting' symbolic which is similar]). The video ends very symbolically with the light covering her face as the rest of the band coil the light's cord around her leaving her in bondage to the light (also serpent symbolic). The clich├ęd explanation for the song/video doesn't wash with me ('it's about tension in the band and nearly breaking up', which sounds like a stock explanation bands often come up with; at least they tried instead of completely avoiding it like in the 'Brick by Boring Brick' making of video I linked to further up), and hopefully Taylor is just joking around (either that or he is in a dissociative, altered state).

One of their photo shoots with the Texaco logo used symbolically (Pentagram in a circle with Tau Cross, though on the surface obviously it's just represents the Lone Star and the T of Texas, it's a shame people never look beyond the surface), note her checker pattern top.

Paramore with those duality twins from Oz The Veronicas (in usual black, black/white stripes [which Hayley is often seen in], leopard print).
Lisa's (from the Veronicas) Halloween photos are relatively disturbing (beyond your standard Halloween horror themes), appropriately as (M)Alice in Wonderland to end this short post.
