Dive in, take a breath
Blow the smoke through the hole in my chest
Still choking on the bed
Found your waste while the ember red keeps falling down and burning holes
Until the pillow and the mattress glow
Now I wanna be the tattoo ink that swims down through the needle in your skin
And I wish I was poisonous
Like a bottomless sound, like a violent drug
Do you remember the knife I kept?
The sharper it got, the more you wanted me to use it
I was lying to you, but you were lying too
So what's left to do?
What's left to say?
Stop making friends, just us
I'll decompose with you

So light the fuse inside your brain and we will detonate
You threw your drink at the wall
It started raining wine and glass so
Stay and warm me with the Gentlemen Jack
Gold locks on the cage
Turn your diamond keys
Open the door you'll see me digging out my getaway

Hang the stars who pulled the pin out of my heart

And just because you're screaming for my attention
Does not mean I will waste my time
So hold your breath and swim under the ice

And modern anxiety
That motherfucker never rests
Our adrenaline is kickin' in so play the beat faster
Head for the streets
We're the puke and decay
We're only dreaming, what's your problem baby?
Don't mean to break your heart
I'm the new fragrance in fermented jars
In area code (666)

And just because you're screaming for my attention
Does not mean I will waste my time
So hold your breath and learn how to swim underneath the ice

Kill me if I end up like you

And just because you're screaming for my attention
Does not mean I will waste my time
So hold your breath and swim under the ice
I know that it's not safe here
You did this to yourself but have no fear
Just hold your breath and swim under

    General Comment“This was the last song that we finished. We felt that it had no other place on the record other than at the very beginning, because it was a good example of who we are. If you wanted to introduce somebody to Pierce The Veil, you could play them that song, and they’d get it. Being on tour or even just being in the music industry can bring a lot of frustrations. You unfortunately see the realities of how it all works. We’re the kind of the band who try to keep everything very grassroots between our families and friends. When people try to belittle that vibe or taint that beautiful thing about music, it brings a lot of anger and frustration. The bridge of the song where I say, ‘Kill me if I end up like you,’ ties it all together. I never want to lose this honesty and passion for what we’re doing. We’ve toured with people who seem to have lost it and just do it for money. They don’t even want to go on stage every night. I don’t want to be around that, and it really brings me down.”
