"The First Punch" as written by and Michael Fuentes Victor Fuentes....
This world is about to change
One, two
One, two, three, four

Look into my eyes
And look at the words you say
Blood on your tongue with a
I found a kiss on the dew and I said,
"This will be a night we won't forget"

Speak slow now, I don't want to miss when you cry
I saw her diamond blue eyes

And it's good enough to make me wanna fall in love
So now you'd better think close
And 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 mind
Love is what you make it, but at least I've got real friends
Know that I'm
F*** you that you're no longer yourself

And it's good enough to make me wanna fall in love
So now you'd better think close
And 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 now you'd better think close
And 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 throw the first punch
You threw the first punch
Now it's your turn to run

This is the part that will take my life
There's a future of
And never watch it die

    Song MeaningThe way I see it:

    Like in almost any Pierce The Veil song it's about 2 lovers.
    The start of the song expresses it clearly.

    However they made their relationship into a war:
    "I don't wanna miss when you cry, glass over diamond blue eyes"
    "See you throw the first punch"
    "It's such a shame you had to go and run your mouth."
    "Fuck you and your new love for yourself. It don't mean shit."

    Apparently they know it's bad for them and want to stop it when they scream "Why can't we just be friends?"
    Not necessarily breaking up, just behave like friends and not enemies.
    Although breaking up can be an alternative, and they're so obsessed with each other that they keep "breaking the rules" because they're tempted).

    About the "first punch", it has 2 options too.
    He's either wanting to see the first punch (not necessarily physical) so he could justify when he strikes and claim that the other side started it.
    The other option is that he can't wait to see it because he enjoys this game or the pain in it (even tho he knows it's bad for him).

    The fact that he's saying that it's just half of the fun matches both of these scenarios. The first half (enjoying that war or pain) or the second ("justified" conscience-clean revenge that would probably hurt twice than it should).

    General Comment“The First Punch” is about a few different things, but I’ll tell you about one of them. We tour with a lot of bands that act like little rockstars and treat their fans like shit. It’s kind of a ‘fuck you’ to those kinds of people. I don’t ever want to be like that.
