Pierce The Veil – The First Punch lyrics

[Intro]
(Where you from fool?!)
This world is about to change!
In 1, 2...
1, 2, 3, 4!

[Verse 1]
Look into my eyes,
And look at the words you say.
Blood on your tongue with a crass embrace,
A photo kiss on the day we met said
"This will be a night we won't forget".
Speak slow now, I don't want to miss when you cry.
Glass over diamond blue eyes.

[Chorus]
And it's good enough to make me wanna fall in love,
So move a little bit closer, 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
.

[Verse 2]
Such a shame you had to go and run your mouth!
Your mouth is what you make it, but at least I've got real friends.
Can you hear me now? Now that I'm a big star!
Fuck you and your new love for yourself.
(It don't mean shit)


[Chorus]
And it's good enough to make me wanna fall in love,
So move a little bit closer, 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.

[Hook]
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.

[Bridge]
And it's good enough to make me wanna fall in love,
So move a little bit closer, 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!

[Outro]
This is the breath that will take my life,
There's no future but matches and propane.
And through the mutated words I write,
Kill it fast and never watch it die!

    I agree with @PTVfan for most of it, but just to reiterate and add on to that, this song is simply about an on and off relationship. The couple breaks up, stay friends, then they end up getting back together. No matter how many times they say that they're never getting back together, they always do. They can't just stay friends because their emotions get in the way. When Vic says "Speak slow now, I don't want to miss when you cry. Glass over diamond blue eyes," he's basically saying that he knows what she is about to say because their relationship has became so predictable. It's just vicious cycle that they can't control. Also when Vic says "And it's good enough to make me wanna fall in love," He's explaining that no matter how much they fight, he always falls for her again. He knows that she's gonna "throw the first punch," basically meaning that she's gonna start wanting to get back with him. I had a relationship A LOT like this except the guy I was with always "threw the first punch," so I can relate to this song a lot.

    -The First Punch' is about re-uniting with someone after you've both decided that we should just be friends. It's about losing all self-control and letting your emotions guide you. It can make for an unhealthy relationship but sometimes we let our emotions get the best of us. We co-wrote the music for this song with our good friend Tom Denney in Florida. I always take at least one trip out there to write with Tom because our styles seem to work well together, plus it's one of the only times that we really get to hang out so it's always a good time! "
