The 10 Best Pierce the Veil Songs of All-Time
Pierce the Veil has been around since 2006. During that time, they have seemingly covered just about every type of genre you can imagine. That includes rock, metal, alternative and several others.
The truth of the matter is that they don’t like to be put inside a box. If something resonates with them, they are likely going to record it and they genuinely don’t care whether or not the material follows suit with anything they’ve done in the past.
Just in case you’re interested, here are 10 of the best songs they’ve ever done.
10. Props & Mayhem (2012)
What exactly are they talking about in this song? For the most part, it’s all about putting on a show. Granted, some of the lyrics refer to the show they put on when they play a concert, but they’re also talking about the show that individuals put on each and every day.
There is the side of people that they allow others to see and the side that they keep private. In doing so, they often use certain aspects of their life as if they were props in a show. The mayhem refers to the fact that sooner or later, all of that facade starts to fall away and people begin seeing these individuals for who they truly are, good bad or indifferent.
9. Bulletproof Love (2010)
Have you ever loved someone so much that you felt as though you could take on the whole world? That is precisely what the lyrics in this song refer to, a type of love so strong that everything else is a distinct second.
8. Hell Above (2012)
Sometimes hell can be found right here on Earth. When you’re going through something horrible and you don’t see a way to move forward, it feels like things will never get better. Before you know it, you start to feel like you might as well be in hell, because you’re living in your own version of it anyway.
7. Dive In (2016)
Sometimes the only way to do something is to jump in head first and sort out all the details later. This is a song that speaks to that fact on so many different levels. It’s a good one if you need some motivation to get moving or to start something new that you’ve been putting off.
6. Disasterology (2010)
It’s funny how people always seem to have the best of intentions, yet things often fail to go as planned. Who wakes up and thinks about doing something that will ultimate;y get them into trouble or derail their plans? Nevertheless, it happens all the time. You might think of this song as a musical dissertation on self-sabotage.
5. Tangled in the Great Escape (2012)
Who hasn’t looked at the life someone is living and thought things looked better than their own life? It’s the “grass is greener on the other side” mentality. The thing is, it’s usually not better. Unless you learn how to be happy in your soul, all you will ever do is get tangled up in a mess while you’re trying to emulate someone else’s life.
4. One Hundred Sleepless Nights (2012)
Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go as planned. If you’ve ever been through something that drove you absolutely mad, especially during those lonely night hours, you can identify with this song.
3. Hold On Till May (2012)
Sometimes you have to tell yourself that if you can just hold on a little while longer, everything will be okay. That’s essentially what the lyrics here are saying. It may not be the happiest song, but it is one that most people understand quite well. As a matter of fact, most people probably understand it better than they would ever like to admit.
That’s because you often have to find a way to keep going until things are better. If that means telling yourself that you only have to do something for another month or two just to keep from breaking down, then that is precisely what you do.
2. A Match Into Water (2012)
There are times when a single little spark is all it takes to make someone remember why they started doing something in the first place. Unfortunately, such a small spark can often be extinguished by all the pressures and demands of the world. In that sense, it is very much like putting a match in an entire body of water and then wondering why it went out. In life, the key is to find a reason to keep the spark alive.
1. King for a Day (2012)
Who wouldn’t want to be king for a day? If we’re all being honest with ourselves, we’d jump at the chance to be in charge, righting the things we perceive as wrong and making things better that we’ve likely been struggling with for a very long time.
That’s especially true if the changes made could be permanent. After all, who wouldn’t jump at the chance to give themselves and the people they love a better life? You can also take things a bit deeper with the lyrics of this song.
As opposed to seeing only what’s on the surface, you can use the lyrics as something of a metaphor for life. The king almost always gets his way. Any person who has ever lost someone they love or suffered a significant setback knows how it feels to be on the receiving end of a bad day/month/year. Imagine being able to somehow get around all that.
