Pierce The Veil – Stay Away From My Friends lyrics

Wakin' up your neighbors, downstairs
I've been inside your bedroom a thousand years
And as you tie me to the bed for good I say
That I
want you in the most un-romantic ways

Louisiana, you're
torturing me with a beautiful face
Ana come on, I thought we had a damn good thing (damn good thing)
A penny
in the couch and the diamond ring

So baby
stay away from my friends
'Cause I need them to carry me
When it's over
I'll count back from ten and
You can listen to glass hearts shattering

I don't know
how you got into me
Down my throat and made a home in my veins
They used to be the rivers that would take us away
But now you only call me every Christmas and my birthday
I still can't believe how
you look next to me
Just like a strip club bedroom scene

Baby stay away from my friends (my friends)
'Cause I need them to carry me
When it's over I'll count back from ten
And you can listen to something that you've never heard before
(Never heard before, never heard before)

But you don't know what it's like
To wake up in the middle of the night
Scaring the thought of kissing razors
This blood evacuation is telling me to cave in
Stay away (away)
No, oh, oh, oh
,
Oh, no, oh, oh, oh
Just stay away (away) from my friends (from my friends)

    I have heard that this song is about self harm and anorexia and relationships. The song means stay away from my friends so I will have someone to rely on. Like when wanting to cave in and start cutting or starting to be anorexic again. So he needs someone like his friends to keep him going so he wont feel so hurt from a broken heart and start to cut again or become anorexic again.

    For some reason I feel like this is about self-harm, 'Louisiana" and 'ana' could be "ana"anorexia, and his "friends" could be his blades. "Cause you don't know what its like, to wake up in the middle of the night. Scaring the thought of kissing razors. This blood evacuation is telling me to cave in" I just connect these lyrics to self-harm. I know Vic used to suffer from self-harm, so idk this is just how I feel about this song.
