Pierce The Veil – King For A Day lyrics

Pierce The Veil – King For A Day lyrics

[Verse 1]
Vic:
Dare me to jump off of this Jersey bridge,
Kellin:
I bet you never had a Friday night like this.
Vic:
Keep it up keep, it up let’s raise our hands,
Kellin:
I take a look up in the sky and I see red.
Vic:
Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy,
Red for the drink that’s mixed with suicide.
Kellin:
Everything red.

[Pre-Chorus: Kellin]
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 is no fucking fun.
You want a martyr, I’ll be one
Because enough’s enough,
We’re done.

[Chorus: Vic]
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.

[Verse 2: Vic]
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.

[Pre-Chorus: Kellin]
(Scream) until there’s nothing left!
So sick of playing, I don’t want to anymore.
The thought of you is no fucking fun,
You want a martyr I’ll be one,
Because enough’s enough we’re done.

[Chorus: Vic]
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:
Imagine living like a king someday,
A single night without a ghost in the walls.
And if the bass shakes the earth underground,
Vic & Kellin:
We’ll start a new revolution now!

[Hook: Vic]
(Alright here we go)
Hail Mary, forgive me,
Blood for blood, hearts beating.
Come at me, now this is war.
Fuck with this new beat!
Oh!

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

[Chorus: Vic]
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:
Imagine living like a king someday,
A single night without a ghost in the walls.
We are the shadows screaming take us now

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