"I'd Rather Die Than Be Famous..." as written by and Victor Vincent/fuentes Fuentes....
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
Come on Holly put the gun down for me
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You love money and the sex in your veins
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
They're tryin' to take it from us, they're tryin' to take it from us
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You're so pretty when you dress for the grave

Love me as you lay
Dizzy and falling your legs dangling
Although accidents happen, they happen to me
Try to forget the beginning and end

Forget the world without removing the glass from your lips
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You love money and the sex in your veins
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
They're tryin' to take it from us, they're tryin' to take it from us
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
The sun's comin' up and we're still awake

Am I the trigger of your gun
Your pretty eyes don't give me much choice
But I'll take them home
I've done some thinkin' of my own
And when I come home
I want to be done, don't want to be famous no more

Leave that girl alone
My teenage heart-attack keeps talking back
Keeps talking back to her
And I can't pretend that off this balcony
We wouldn't want to jump off of it
And put an end to this
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You love money and the sex in your veins
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
Doll up and sleep walk
Until we have some teeth marks
Narcotic sweet talk
Until we have some teeth marks
This whole place is gonna burn.

    General CommentFirst off, their band broke up because first, their bassist left the band to pursue a career. Then a few months later, their rhythm guitar player left the band to go do other things with his life.

    And I think this song is more about becoming famous and getting caught up in the party like a rockstar life style with all the sex drugs and booze. That he gets caught up in all of that and forgets whats really important to him.

    General Commenti think they are talking about human sins and how this earth is going to burn at the end of the world like it says in the bible...

    General Commenti agree, the song is probably about hollywood, and getting caught up in fame and everything that comes with it. pierce the veil is one of my favourite bands of all time.
