Hayley Williams explained to Kerrang! magazine that, “this song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they’re living a fantasy life. It’s one thing to have goals and dreams but it’s another thing when you never know where you’re standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that.” She also added: “Brick By Boring Brick is about not accepting reality and understanding that you don’t have to make everything frilly or pretty-sounding for it to be interesting. Life doesn’t have to be some grand production, and some of the boring parts of being alive are actually the greatest. The song is about breaking down those walls and finding out that the centre of it is what really matters.”” (Source Brick by Boring Brick Songfacts).
