Pierce The Veil – Phantom Power And Ludicrous Speed lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm mastering the art of miracles and flawless tragedies
In here I spend everyday trying to fit in
Devoured while the walls grow hands and teeth
I cried and listened to the rain in a rental car
And one day somebody's gonna go and get pushed too far
But now I don't know what to say
Shall I deny my lungs their breathing rights?

So give it up give it up
Don't let your mind slip away
Don't drink, don't get so high
Your beat's too obvious
Not gonna say what you want me to say
I guess you're right...

[Pre-chorus]
The less you're seen, the less you are
But I don't even care anymore

[Chorus]
Anatomy of a ghost, invisible friend
I won't pay for sanity, 'cause I don't wanna know
Some things are better left alone
But thanks for your concern and calls

[Verse 2]
I'd put a bullet in my head if I ever lost you now
Never even owned a bed
Just a blood red couch
You think you're getting the best of me
Disarm this smoke alarm
Fuck you, no one is gonna ruin all our fun
All that we want is this temporary release and distraction

[Chorus]
Anatomy of a ghost, invisible friend
I won't pay for sanity, 'cause I don't wanna know
Some things are better left alone

[Bridge]
It seems
I'm not everything you wanted me to be
I suggest you pray for a full recovery
A full recovery

Your words were written in
Your words were written in
Cold blood

Now

Even with phantom power and ludicrous speed
I can't run because betrayal won't come from my enemies

[Chorus]
Anatomy of a ghost, invisible for anyone
They pay for sanity so
Baby here's a toast to things much better left alone

[Outro]
It seems
I'm not everything you wanted me to be
In a dream on a way to a hospital I slip away
What's happening to me?
And as you drag the lake
Pull me out do you feel the same inside you
And as my body lays before you now, do you feel my skin?
It's cold

    I think this song really is just a lash on us. We expect so much out of Vic for this album and I think that's why he says that basically no matter what he does someone will be unhappy with him. I think it's named Phantom Power And Ludicrous Speed because we all rushed him so much for this album and he kinda took that anger out and created this song. I really could be wrong on this one, but honestly that's what I got from it. He was just telling us to chill out. I also think he was scared of losing us because we are his whole world now. When he said "I'd put a bullet in my head if I ever lost you now.
    Never even owned a bed.
    Just a blood red couch" made me think that he is talking to us directly.
