"Besitos" as written by and Michael Fuentes David Yaden....
You're my favorite explosion.
(You know the only real way to cure pain is to add a little more,
because everything new distracts the old.)
A violin with no hands plays symphonies with no words.
A drowning boy with no voice prays someone up there's telling me,
You'd better not get back up!
I spit my heart into this red cup.
I'd better pick it back up, it might ruin your night.

And she said,
"Baby, leave the water by the bed for later,
And I woke up without a single drop.

I told myself I'm tired of holding up your backup plans.
Go down your list and be satisfied if all you have is not enough.

(True love comes from more than just the heart)

She said paint a picture on me,
Throw your dress up and your heart away.
Yeah, I heard what you said.
A friend of a friend, these strangers at the party never paid.
And if that doesn't turn you on.
I'll keep talking till something does.
As we're covered in sand, you roll over and smile.

I told myself I'm tired of holding up your backup plans.
Go down your list and be satisfied it's all you have.
And until that day,
I'll steal you flowers from the cemetery, red roses.
Red rose of the dead.
How does it feel to breathe oxygen inside her head?

So say it, say I'm in love, cause you called me
Crying from your job, said you just got fired.
And you don't have a backup plan,
so don't expect me to understand.

(A diamond bullet and a gun made of gold, she was covered in blood last seen in San Francisco)

Yeah!
We all breakdown.
Sometimes the bedroom walls become my only friends,
But they were there from beginning to end.

I'm tired of holding up your backup plans.
Go down your list and be satisfied it's all you have.
You know I've never held a gun in my life,
But now I carry one around in case I see you tonight.
Bedroom walls.
Oh, these bedroom walls.
Oh, I hate what it tastes like.

    General CommentThis song very openly features the Spanish side of Pierce The Veil's music. We always try to incorporate at least a hint of Latin influence in every song, but with this one, we just went all the way with it. Lyrically, it's about my dysfunctional relationship with a girl I couldn't stop hurting over and over again. It's meant to be her speaking to me, asking me why I'm not satisfied with what we had. I wanted to write it from her perspective to try and understand what she was going through at the time. It ends with her wanting to kill me for all the stuff I've put her through.

    General CommentInstead of "You know I never had the gun in my heart."

    I think it's "You know I never held a gun in my life."

    Thank you. Changed.

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I think instead of "The day you'd listen" it's something like " until you're distant " .. definitely something distant.

    General CommentI think it's "and you don't have a backup plan" as oppose to "And you don't have no backup plans."
    And I'm not too sure about this, but I hear "And if that doesn't turn you on" instead of "And you're stopped as I turn you on." but then again, I'm not entirely sure

    General CommentI believe it's

    "I'm tired of holding up your backup plans
    LOOK DOWN YOUR LIST AND be satisfied it's all you have"

    General CommentI just came on to post the same thing that ohhihello did. I definitely hear "I'm tired of holding up your back up plans, look down and be satisfied it's all have you have."

    General CommentAlso, you missed a line between

    "I told myself. I'm tired of holding up your backup plans.
    Until you listen. Be sastified, if all you have is not enough.

    She said, paint a picture of me.
    So you dress up, hand your heart away?"

    It goes:

    "I told myself. I'm tired of holding up your backup plans.
    Look down your list and be satisfied if all you have is not enough.

    True love comes from more than just the heart." then goes into "She said, paint a picture of me" etc.
