Pierce The Veil – Yeah Boy And Doll Face lyrics
Were you honest when you said,
"I could never leave your bed"?
Wake me up and let me know
You're alive
.

And will you fall in love again?
Is the scent slowly spreading?
I've been answering machines
All night.

Now the doctors dancing in,
While the ambulances sing.
Another boy without a sharper knife
.

The moment, that's where I
Kill the conversation, wrap this up
With a knife that loves to feel
,
How do you know how deep to go before it's real?

Take me home,
Can I even
Complicate your breathing?
I guess I'm just your average boy
.

This is me,
With a knife in the back and a grip on the grass, it's cold
And I don't want to be here.
I guess I'm never comfortable or situational

(Are we losing or beginning
To try a new life without you?)


The moment, that's where I
Kill the conversation, wrap this up,
With a lie that I'm enjoying
Every minute with myself
.

And she could make hell
Feel just like home,
So I'm never leaving her alone
.

But if your lightning lips aren't mine,
Then I don't know the awkward stranger to my right,
But she's crying.

I only need one hand to drive,
When you're with me.
You are my getaway.

Oh no,
And don't you ever feel alone?
And don't you wish you were home,
Cut the lust tonight?

Alright, alright tell me why my,
Little Mona Lisa told a lie
!

Do you want me,
Do you want to let me know that you're okay?
A diamond gold ring,
Customized to cut your circulation
.

But I couldn't let you go,
No, I never let you go my dear.
So keep talking cause I love to hear your voice,
Your voice again.

    A guy is emotionally unstable but has a lover that he really feels for but starts to question her loyalty. He tries to kill himself and it becomes apparent that she is cheating on him. He knows she's cheating on him but doesn't know what to do about it. He tries leaving her but feels he can't because he still has feeling for her. They both have emotional problems and their relationship is unstable yet they can't stop seeing each other.

    I feel like the "complicate your breathing" means that no matter what happens to him it still will not effect her in any way, she will continue on with her life like nothing happened. The "i don't know the awkward stranger to my right" means that no matter how hard he tries he will still not feel the same with a new random person. Its awkward meeting new people especially after you have been hurt. The fear of the same fate eats away at you on the inside. A hole. I pulsating but broken heart. It keeps going but you can't understand why.

    I honestly believe that the whole song was about a couple promising to be together until the end and in the end someone (the girl in this case) backs out leaving the other partner feeling lost and confused without her by his/her side. I assume it's a girl because of the Mona Lisa reference. Mona Lisa is an unknown female who is believed to be the wife of Florentine merchant Francesco del Giocondo. Nobody is really certain of her and her date though. Bringing me to believe that his "wife" reminds him Mona Lisa because her love is unknown to him. He feels it towards her but he knows that she doesn't love him the same. The awkward stranger part refers to if she is not his loving wife then he doesn't know this mysterious women who is crying anymore. His love with seemed to be a lie. In the end, he would rather his "wife" be dead than not loving him. The whole "a diamond gold ring" part really backs up that his love for was filled with good intentions until her prevalent un-interest in him settled in. All she has ever had towards him was lust and that was what killed him the most. In the end, she's dead and a mystery still, but he realizes the only thing that seemed to stay the same about her was the sound of voice. Now re-read the entire song. I feel like this plot makes the whole song come together in my head.
    This is only my opinion and I don't know if it's true or not, but if it was I praise Vic for hiding these meanings so carefully. Thank you for reading!

    I don't think my meaning is the only meaning, nor do I think mine is completely right. I'm basing this completely off what I can get from the lyrics and music video. I didn't google anything the band said about any meaning in this song. This is just my opinion. I think that his fiancé ("...diamond gold ring...") cheated on him ("...little Mona Lisa told a lie...") and so he attempted to commit suicide but failed. He feels like he can't give up on her, even though he knows he has to. That's what I get from the song, but I find different meaning if you look into the music video. What I get from that is maybe she broke up with him. Grieving with pain, he tries to kill himself. His ex finds him, calls and ambulance, and he lives. The parts he's saying that she's lying was her saying something like "I don't want to see you again" but she came and saved him after a suicide attempt. I'm not sure and probably wrong but one thing I defiantly catch from this is an unhealthy relationship and suicide. The song does make room for some interpretations though.

    "take me home," "dont you ever feel alone/ and dont you wish you were home" means he feels lost and alone, he doesn't know where he is, or what to do. He doesn't know who he is or where he belongs.
    I agree with the idea that he probably cuts himself over her because she's cheating. He says that if she is cheating, she's a stranger. This sounds like he's in denial, trying to cope and keep her. Lines that support the cutting theory include "wrap this up/ with a knife that loves to feel/how dfo you know how deep to go before its real," "i only need one hand to drive. "
    I also think she wouldnt marry him, but he was willing to wait for her and go on dating her for as long as he could. "a diamond gold ring/customized to cut yoru circulation/but i couldnt let you go. "
    Because he thought she was cheating, he didn't feel enough for her, "can i even complicate your breathing/i guess im just your average boy"

    I think where he says "wake me up and let me know your alive" its suppose to say "wake me up and let me know your life or lying" then I would like cmpletely understand it because she cheats on him he cuts himself "how do you know how deep to go b4 its real? " and that other part "another boy without a sharper knife! " and "customized to cut your circulation! " and a whole bunch of athoer parts. It's an awesome song! : d and I know those lyrics are right so ya, I just think itd make more sense. -_- ~obsession with pierce the veil and mcr~.

    I think this song is about a relationship where the guy is so deeply in love with a girl but she doesn't have as strong feelings towards him. It seems like he can't handle all the emotions he's going through and tries to release them through cutting himself. He appears blinded by his love for this woman 'i don't know the awkward stranger to my right'. He doesn't see anything else but her and what they have. Or rather 'had'. She's obviously not who he had originally thought and may have betrayed his love and trust. It's a deep and meaningful song. I love it. Seems to have so many meanings.

    I think its about a boy who loves a girl but she stabs him in the back (with a knife in the back). He wants to kno if all the things she said about loving him we're real (were you honest when you said). He can't bring himself to hate her or even stop loving her even tho she hurts him alot (she could make hell feel just like home) but he pretends he's ok (with a lie that I'm enjoying evry minute with myself) he feels like she might really love him but he also isn't really sure if he really knos her at all. (if your lightning lips arent mine/ then I don't kno the awkward stranger to mi right). Btw watever it means I really love this song. :}

    To me, this song seems to be about a boy who felt the pain of a relationship gone wrong. He keeps replaying, in his head, memories from their time together and then is reminded again how she stabbed him in the back. "With a knife that loves to feel" as in she has done this before; "how do you know how deep to go before it's real" he couldn't let her go before so how many times does she have to do it until he can realize it. He's never comfortable with the knowledge that he would have to live without her and so "with a lie that I'm enjoying every minute with myself" explains that he gladly lives this lie if it means he won't have to lose her "she could make hell feel just like home" touches on the part about how she keeps hurting him, yet he doesn't care.

    I think he's killing himself over a girl. She said she loved him, but she's broken his heart plenty of times. "another boy without a sharper knife"; he didn't quite kill himself. "Can I even complicate your breathing, I guess I'm just your average boy"; he isn't anything special to her. He wants to "try a new life" without her. I'm not sure what the "Awkward stranger" part means. Overall, she's killing him inside, but he can't live without her, or with her. It's a live-hate thing. She's a drug. He loves her more than she would ever love him, and he can't live knowing that.

    I'm definitely thinking the "will you ever love again part" and the "another boy without a sharper knife" part go hand in hand. Like, shes cheated or moved on, but the new guy hurt her, yet didn't quite break her heart (kill her). So the chick goes back to the original, and they try to make it work, and he goes back and harms the second guy who hurt the girl. But, the original is always worried shes gonna leave again, so he suffocates her with his affection. And theyre always together cuzza the ring and all, but shes slowly dying (suffocation) and he's always in denial about her being a "stranger" next to him.

    I no this is a strange interpretation. But it sooo makes sense. Woookay, I reckon that this is about a suicide pact that went wrong. Where the chick died but the guy didn't. Hence the medical s*t in the beggining. Lines such as 'Wake me up and let me know you're alive' and 'will you ever love again' could mean that he is saying please tell me that you are alive and that you can love again cause when ur dead you can't love. 'Another boy without a sharper knife' - where his knife wasnt 'sharp' enuf thus didn't dig deep enuf to kill him.
    'How do you know how deep to go before it's real' - how deep do you have to dig with the knife before you know that its actually going to do something. 'To try a new life without you' - shes dead. 'When you're with me, You are my getaway' - whenever he remembers her he feels as though he escapes. 'But I couldn't let you go - No, I never let you go my dear' hes thinking of killing himself cause he can't live without her. Lol I know its rong but it just made me think of that and reminded me of 'three days grace - its not to late\'.

    The boy finds out that the girl he was going to marry ("diamond gold ring") she doesn't feel the same way so she left him, she didn't even tell him the reason why, she lied to him. His little everything lied to him to get out of being with him. And when he try's to kill himself he fails. When people brung up their situation and uf he can live life without her, he "kills the conversation" he diesnt want to talk avout it. Because he can't live without her. He saw her again. But seeing her now if she isn't his anymore, then she's just another ("awkward stranger") he tells her he is happy alone, and ("enjoying every minute with himself") he lied. But she is like mona lisa because no one knows what she's thinking or why she left him. But he wants to know what she has been thinking. Does she want him back? Has she been okay? He tells her that she was going to ask her to marry him and as she explains he says he will never give up, but he listens to everything she has to say.
    *I pretty much explained ever line that means somthing in this song. I know I'm right. So here's the meaning!
