Music Monday – King For A Day by Pierce The Veil (feat. Kellin Quinn)

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! For this week’s song, I have chosen King For A Day by Pierce The Veil (feat. Kellin Quinn).

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


King For A Day by Pierce The Veil (feat. Kellin Quinn)

King For A Day features on Pierce The Veil’s 2012 album, Collide With The Sky. It was also released as a single the same year.

I am throwing it right back with this one! I used to absolutely LOVE this song, and to be honest, I still do. I think anyone around my age who went through the emo phase (IT’S NOT A PHASE) will agree that Kellin Quinn teaming up with Pierce The Veil for this song was one of the greatest things to ever happen, haha!


Lyrics:

Dare me to jump off of this Jersey bridge?
I bet you never had a Friday night like this
Keep it up, keep it up, let’s raise our hands
I take a look up at the sky and I see red
Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy
Red for the drink that’s mixed with suicide
Everything red

Please, won’t you push me for the last time
Let’s scream until there’s nothing left
So sick of playing, I don’t want this anymore
The thought of you’s no fucking fun
You want a martyr, I’ll be one
Because enough’s enough, we’re done

You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

The thing I think I love
Will surely bring me pain
Intoxication, paranoia, and a lot of fame
Three cheers for throwing up
Pubescent drama queen
You make me sick, I make it worse by drinking late

Scream until there’s nothing left
So sick of playing, I don’t want to anymore
The thought of you’s no fucking fun
You want a martyr I’ll be one
Because enough’s enough, we’re done

You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
And if the bass shakes the earth underground
We’ll start a new revolution now
(Now! Alright here we go)

Hail Mary, forgive me
Blood for blood, hearts beating
Come at me, now this is war!

Fuck with this new beat
Oh!

Now terror begins inside a bloodless vein
I was just a product of the street youth rage
Born in this world without a voice or say
Caught in the spokes with an abandoned brain
I know you well but this ain’t a game
Blow the smoke in diamond shape
Dying is a gift so close your eyes and rest in peace

You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
We are the shadows screaming take us now

We’d rather die than live to rust on the ground
Shit
