Pierce The Veil – Props & Mayhem lyrics

[Verse 1]
Self medicate,
While they sleep we let the night chase evil things away.
And we're like animals homesick from shows,
We've got to kill everything before the night gets wasted.
Maybe it's seem so strange,
But we don't even stress at all.
'Cause we've got poisons in our lungs.
(Poisons in our lungs)

Come at me with everything you've got.

Burst into flames, scream in the dark.
I'm gonna light up this place,
And die in beautiful stars

[Verse 2]
Does it even make a difference?
When I'm sober, I feel pain.
As we run under the stars through cemetery backyards (backyards),
Celebrate the way the night hides scars.
So dance! If it moves you
Jump in the fire! If it burns you
I'll throw my arms around you darling,
And we'll turn to ashes,
Drown me in the flames.

Scream in the dark!
I'm gonna light up this place and die in beautiful stars!

But if these demons keep falling from the sky? (It's alright)
'Cause sometimes I love the way
You swing the blade at everything in sight!

Separate me from my own two hands, I've killed so many times,
But I can't save the world from the creatures that don't die.
Kinda like the way you tell me, "Baby, please come home,
I need you here right now,
I'm crying in the water so you don't hear the sound. "

Burst into flames (What do you do when you're out of time?)
Scream in the dark (Where do you go when they're right outside?)
I'm gonna light up this place (And how do you scream when there's no one around?)
(Nobody around?)

And I will be the only light,
I'll be the only light!

  • p
    -I wrote myself into the movie Attack the Block for this song. The film is about a bunch of thug kids in London who save the world from an alien invasion. I threw in a lot of personal experience and added a love story to make things interesting as well. I wrote the main riff and chords to the song on an instrument called a -Kalimba" that I bought in Switzerland while we were on tour. "
