Favorite Songs From Pierce The Veil!

“Hell Above”

Up!

I cannot spend another night in this home
I close my eyes and take a breath real slow
The consequence is if I leave I’m alone
But what’s the difference when you beg for love?

As I run through glass in the street
Kerosene hearts carry the name that my father gave me
And take the face of the wolf

‘Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there’s hell over me

I met a girl who never looked so alone
Like sugar water in your mouth lukewarm
She tied a cherry stem for me with her tongue
We fell in love and now we’re both alone

‘Cause I don’t need any more friends
And another kiss like a fire on pavement
We’ll burn it down till the end

Oh, oh

This is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there’s hell over me

The water is rusted, the air is unclean.
And there for a second I feel free
This is a wasteland, my only retreat

I’ve waited all this night to honor you and say,
“I know it’s hard, but who are you to fall apart on me, on me?”

This is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there’s hell over me

‘Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat
With heaven above you, there’s hell over me

You said what about us, well, what about me?
Hang from the gallows asleep in the rain
‘Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat
Paralyze me
Don’t let me jump, don’t let me fall

“A Match Into Water”

Let’s go!

I kissed the scars on her skin
I still think you’re beautiful
And I don’t ever wanna lose my best friend.
I screamed out, “God, you vulture (you vulture),
Bring her back or take me with her.”

Tear it down, break the barricade
I want to see what sound it makes
I hate this flavor with a passion and I fucking hate the aftertaste

How does it feel? (How does it feel?)
How does it feel? Well it feels like I’m on fire!
Wake up, I know you can hear me.

Make me a promise here tonight, love like a tidal wave
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way
The chemicals will bring you home again
This is it, when it’s done, we can say that,
When it’s sudden death we fight back
(Oh, yeah)

Pretend like I don’t entice you
I’ve seen you circling the sky above my head
You traitor

I will never be taken for granted again
Keep digging holes in the desert
Say a prayer for you

I know that you’re in pain
But if we die at the same time does it still scare you?

Make me a promise here tonight. Let’s go!
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way
The chemicals will bring you home again
This is it, when it’s done, we can say that,
Oh my God we’re not gonna make it

We will bring the tidal wave
We will bring the tidal wave
We will bring the tidal wave
We will bring the tidal wave!

We will bring the tidal wave
We will bring the tidal wave
We will bring the tidal wave
And nothing will remain

She’s mine
You stay away from her
It’s not her time.
‘Cause, baby, I’m the one
Who haunts her dreams at night,
Until she’s satisfied.

Make me a promise here tonight, love like a tidal wave
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way
The chemicals will bring you home again
This is it, when it’s done, we can say that,
When it’s sudden death we fight back!

Go!

Fuck it!

“King For A Day”
(feat. Kellin Quinn of Sleeping with Sirens)

[Vic Fuentes & Kellin Quinn]
Dare me to jump off of this Jersey bridge?
I bet you never had a Friday night like this
Keep it up, keep it up, let’s raise our hands
I take a look up at the sky and I see red
Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy
Red for the drink that’s mixed with suicide
Everything red

[Kellin Quinn]
Please, won’t you push me for the last time
Let’s scream until there’s nothing left
So sick of playing, I don’t want this anymore
The thought of you’s no fucking fun
You want a martyr, I’ll be one
Because enough’s enough, we’re done

[Vic Fuentes]
You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

[Vic Fuentes]
The thing I think I love
Will surely bring me pain
Intoxication, paranoia, and a lot of fame
Three cheers for throwing up
Pubescent drama queen
You make me sick, I make it worse by drinking late

[Kellin Quinn]
Scream until there’s nothing left
So sick of playing, I don’t want to anymore
The thought of you’s no fucking fun
You want a martyr I’ll be one
Because enough’s enough, we’re done

[Vic Fuentes]
You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

[Kellin Quinn]
Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
And if the bass shakes the earth underground
We’ll start a new revolution now
(Now! Alright here we go)

[Vic Fuentes]
Hail Mary, forgive me
Blood for blood, hearts beating
Come at me, now this is war!

Fuck with this new beat
Oh!

[Kellin Quinn & Vic Fuentes]
Now terror begins inside a bloodless vein
I was just a product of the street youth rage
Born in this world without a voice or say
Caught in the spokes with an abandoned brain
I know you well but this ain’t a game
Blow the smoke in diamond shape
Dying is a gift so close your eyes and rest in peace

[Vic Fuentes]
You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

[Kellin Quinn]
Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
We are the shadows screaming take us now

[Vic Fuentes]
We’d rather die than live to rust on the ground
Shit

“The First Punch”

(Where you from, fool?!)

This world is about to change
1, 2 …
1, 2, 3, 4

Look into my eyes
And look at the words you say
Blood on your tongue with a crass embrace.
A photo kiss on the day that we met said
“This will be a night we won’t forget”

Speak slow now, I don’t wanna miss when you cry
Glass over diamond blue eyes

And it’s good enough to make me wanna fall in love
So move a little bit closer
Hear the sound of your voice
We’re screaming, “Why can’t we just be friends?”
It’s not that easy, but it’s half of the fun
To see you throw the first punch now

Such a shame you had to go and run your mouth
…is what you make it, but at least I’ve got real friends
Can you hear me now?
Now that I’m a big star
Fuck you and your new love for yourself
It don’t mean shit.

And it’s good enough to make me wanna fall in love
So move a little bit closer
Hear the sound of your voice
We’re screaming, “Why can’t we just be friends?”
It’s not that easy, but it’s half of the fun
To see you throw the first punch now

I’ve got so much to give, but
I would kill just to feel less invisible
And you’ve got so much to learn about gravity
So live it up baby, don’t look down
Live it up baby, don’t look down

And it’s good enough to make me wanna fall in love
So move a little bit closer
Hear the sound of your voice
We’re screaming, “Why can’t we just be friends?”
It’s not that easy, but it’s half of the fun
I saw it coming when you threw the first punch
You threw the first punch
Now it’s your turn to run

This is the breath that will take my life
There’s no future but matches and propane.
And through the mutated words I write.
Kill it fast and never watch it die.

“One Hundred Sleepless Nights”

I can’t wait to see your brilliant face
Light up the room around the pillowcase
She said, “Can you come over to my LA place
I got something to tell you and it just can’t wait”
When I showed up you held the door in tears
Sat on the couch under the chandeliers.
You said you’re having a baby and before I could cry
You’re leaving me just when I thought you were mine.

But I don’t see your face,
Taken by the one hearted race home now,
But, don’t tell your other man
I got a hell of a plan

Failing lights amass one hundred sleepless nights
And I might be holding on too tight
But there is a beast in my heart and he won’t let you leave alive

Nightmares
No longer wait for sleep
Crawl on the ground on both your hands and knees
Just like a, lion and you’re the queen of the pride
And we will feast together till the bones are dry.

But I don’t see your face.
Taken by the one hearted race home now,
But don’t tell your other man.
He’s not a part of the plan

Failing lights amass one hundred sleepless nights
And I might be holding on too tight
But there is a beast in my heart and he won’t let you leave alive

Do you still love me? I am dying to know.
Or did you forget what we shared?
Out of sight out of mind I was never even there

Failing lights, amass one hundred sleepless nights
And I might be holding on too tight
But there is a beast in my heart and he won’t let you leave alive

This is the price you’ll pay
Thoughts in your head that will never die.

So don’t you forget what we had
It’s like I was never even there.

Go!

“Hold On Till May”
(feat. Lindsey Stamey)

She sits up high, surrounded by the sun
One million branches and she loves every one
“Mom and dad, did you search for me?
I’ve been up here so long I’m going crazy!”

And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound
And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
3-2-1 where did it go?

Now don’t be crazy
Yes now of course you can stay here.
Been in a touring band for going on ten years.
“Big deal,” she said, “I guess you’re official.”
I only said it ’cause I know what it’s like to feel burned out

It gets you down,
We’ve all been there sometimes
But tonight I’ll make you feel beautiful once again

And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound (over the sound)
And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
3-2-1 where did it go?

If I were you I’d put that away
See, you’re just wasted
And thinking ’bout the past again
Darling, you’ll be okay

And she said,

[Lindsey:]
“If you were me, you’d do the same
‘Cause I can’t take anymore
I’ll draw the shades and close the door
Everything’s not alright and I would rather…”

And as the sun went down we ended up on the ground
I heard the train shake the windows
You screamed over the sound (over the sound)
And as we own this night
I put your body to the test with mine
This love was out of control
Tell me where did it go?

“Caraphernelia”
(feat. Jeremy McKinnon of A Day to Remember)

Sunshine, there ain’t a thing that you can do that’s gonna ruin my night.
(But, there’s just something about)
This dizzy dreamer and her bleeding little blue boy.
Licking your fingers like you’re done and,
You’ve decided there is so much more than me.
And baby, honestly it’s harder breathing next to you, I shake.
I brought a gun and as the preacher tried to stop me.
Hold my heart it’s beating for you anyway.

What if I can’t forget you?
I’ll burn your name into my throat.
I’ll be the fire that’ll catch you.
What’s so good about picking up the pieces?
None of the colors ever light up anymore in this hole.

Nobody prays for the heartless.
Nobody gives another penny for the selfish.
You’re learning how to taste what you kill now.
Don’t mind me, I’m just reaching for your necklace.
Talking to my mom about this little girl from Texas.

What if I can’t forget you?
I’ll burn your name into my throat.
I’ll be the fire that’ll catch you.
What’s so good about picking up the pieces?
None of the colors ever light up anymore in this hole.

Just give her back to me.
You know I can’t afford the medicine that feeds what I need.

So, baby, what if I can’t forget you?
(What if I can’t forget you?)
Collide invisible lips like a shadow on the wall,
And just throw, oh no.
You can’t just throw me away.

So, what if I can’t forget you?
I’ll burn your name into my throat.
I’ll be the fire that’ll catch you.
What’s so good about picking up the pieces?
What if I don’t even want to?

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh.

What if I can’t forget you?
I’ll burn your name into my throat.
I’ll be the fire that’ll catch you.
What’s so good about picking up the pieces?
None of the colors ever light up anymore in this hole.

Just give her back to me.
You know I can’t afford the medicine that feeds what I need.
So, baby, what if I can’t forget you?
(What if I can’t forget you?)
I’d better learn to live alone.

What’s so good about picking up the pieces?
What’s so good about? What’s so good about?
What’s so good about picking up the pieces?
Oh.

“Bulletproof Love”

I breathe you in with smoke in the backyard lights (backyard lights),
we used to laugh until we choked into the wasted nights (wasted nights).
It was the best time of my life, but now I sleep alone (sleep alone),
So don’t, don’t, don’t wake me up, ’cause my thrill is gone.
(Say I’m wrong)
and the sunset turning red behind the smoke,
forever and alone.
Yeah!

You’ve gone and sewn me to this bed, the taste of you and me
will never leave my lips again under the blinding rain.
I wanna hold your hand so tight I’m gonna break my wrist,
and when the vultures sing tonight I’m gonna join right in.

I’ll sing along, oh
‘Cause I don’t know any other song.
I’ll sing along,
but I’m barely hanging on.
No, I’m barely hanging on.
By the time you’re hearing this I’ll already be gone,
and now there’s nothing to do but scream at the drunken moon.

This isn’t fair!
(No!)
Don’t you try to blame this on me.
My love for you was bulletproof but you’re the one who shot me.
And god damn it, I can barely say your name,
so I’ll try to write it and fill the pen with blood from the sink.
Whoa oh
But don’t just say it, you should sing my name.
Pretend that it’s a song ’cause forever it’s yours,
and we can sing this on the way home.

I’ll sing along, oh
‘Cause I don’t know any other song.
I’ll sing along,
but I’m barely hanging on.
No, I’m barely hanging on.
By the time you’re hearing this I’ll already be gone,
now there’s nothing to do but tear my voice apart.
Nothing to do,
and scream at the drunken moon.

“Stay Away From My Friends”

Waking up your neighbors downstairs,
I’ve been inside your bedroom a thousand years.
And as you tie me to the bed for good I say
that I want you in the most unromantic way.

Louisiana, you’re torturing me with a beautiful face.
Ana come on, I thought we had a damn good thing.
A penny in the couch and a diamond ring.

So baby stay away from my friends,
’cause I need them to carry me.
When it’s over I’ll count back from ten,
and you can listen to glass hearts shattering.

I don’t know how you got into me,
down my throat and made a home in my veins.
They used to be the rivers that would take us away,
but now you only call me every Christmas and my birthday.
I still can’t believe how you look next to me,
just like a strip club bedroom scene.

Baby stay away from my friends,
’cause I need them to carry me.
When it’s over I’ll count back from ten,
and you can listen to something that you’ve never heard before.

But you don’t know what it’s like
to wake up in the middle of the night,
scaring the thought of kissing razors.
This blood evacuation is telling me to cave in.
Stay away.
Oh no.
Just stay away from my friends.
