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

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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!

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!

    It's like the couple wants to just be friends but the girl wants to still be a couple so she gets mad and rubs it in about her new guy. Yea pretty awesome but not the guys gonna get back at her to from the random unspoken reason pretty awesome for me.

    “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!”
