PIERCE THE VEIL - The Divine Zero

This single was released on Jun 19, 2015.
I loved the vibe of this song. The rhythm and the production felt great, the vocals were powerful and made the song really interesting. The lyrics felt confusing, but it had some deep meaning inside. The kick and the snares were perfect, I loved the hi-hat works as well. The only downside to this song is the dead bass guitar.

[INTRO] C#m A
[VERSE]
A
Maybe I could swim into your thoughts like your drugs do 
F#m
Paralyze your body
F#m
Sick and tired of waking up too
F#m
Burning eyes and cigarettes
F#m
I'm falling through the couch like a suicide mission tonight 
F#m
My God, here comes the downside 

C#m
Wild eyes of terror pray for sex on the beach while 
C#m
Oceans of kerosene will soak into me
A
I'm not meant for this world, I just don't see the point
A
So I don't think about it, don't over think about it 
F#m
And life is a joke 
F#m
But everything's riding on me tonight 
                    A
Been counting the stars and scars 
A                         B
How I'm becoming a work of art 

[CHORUS]
    C#m                          E
In desperate times and desperate measures 
           A
I come so close, my hopes are severed by the downside 
B                      Abm                A
A million waves in the ocean crash at once to make you smile 

[VERSE]
C#m
The whispered words You'd better hide the bullets
C#m                                       A
You stayed on the phone and talked to me day and night 
                          A
Trigger my nightmare once again 
 A                         F#m
And it's fucking loaded in hand 
F#m                  C#m
And we'll let the fire rage
F#m
The smoke and the drowning flames 
     A
My bedroom computer light is the only menace to my new faux wooden blinds

[CHORUS]
    C#m                          E
In desperate times and desperate measures 
           A
I come so close, my hopes are severed by the downside 
B                      Abm                A
A million waves in the ocean crash at once to make you smile

[BRIDGE]
C#m          E                   B
Now, I only pray when it all goes down 
         A                        C#m         B         E
I'll be surrounded by all of the ones I've loved and cared about 
            F#m
And then burn it down 

[INSTRUMENTAL] C#m
[INSTRUMENTAL] C#m A F#m

[BRIDGE]
F#m
And life is a joke
F#m
But at least I can love you, naked and tattooed
             A
Counting the stars and scars
A
And if the pain is a sound, let's slow it down 

[CHORUS]
    C#m                          E
Desperate times and desperate measures
           A
I come so close, my hopes are severed by the downside 
B                      Abm                A
A million waves in the ocean crash at once to make you smile

C#m          E                   B
Now, I only pray when it all goes down 
         A                        C#m         B         E
I'll be surrounded by all of the ones I've loved and cared about 
            F#m
And then burn it down 

[INSTRUMENTAL] C#m B C#m B x2
