"Piercing" is a song written by Katy Perry (then Katy Hudson), Brian White, and Tommy Collier, who also produced the song, for Hudson's self-titled album, Katy Hudson.

Background

Hudson explained the story behind the song on her site in 2001.

"This is an aggressive song because I hate how people are so blinded by the so-called "necessities" of life, when truly nothing on this earth will ever satisfy you. I wanted to write a song about how people are so infatuated with the things of this world. We wrote about how everyone is so blinded with what they want, but they don't know what they really need."

Lyrics

Living in fear is not what you had in mind for me
But holding to you is so hard,
I cling to what I see

In a world where my emotions
Seem to rule my every move
They will challenge my devotion
To seek and know the truth

You're piercing me
This self will bleed
You're killing all of my securities
Lord, help me see the reality
That all I'll ever need is You

Here in this haze a distant light seems to draw me near
But in the shadow of my doubt
My faith just disappears

In a world where my emotions
Seem to rule my every move
They will challenge my devotion
To seek and know the truth

You're piercing me
This self will bleed
You're killing all of my securities
Lord, help me see the reality
That all I'll ever need is You

You're piercing me
This self will bleed
You're killing all of my securities
Lord, help me see the reality
That all I'll ever need is You

You're piercing me
This self will bleed
You're killing all of my securities
Lord, help me see the reality
That all I'll ever need is You
