1. Our lawyer made us change the name of this song so we souldnt get sued

Brothers and sisters put this record down Take my advice ('cause we are bad news) We will leave you high and dry It's not worth the hearing you'll lose It's just past 8 and I'm feeling young and reckless The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas." We're only liars, but we're the best (we're the best) We're only good for the latest trend We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends Besides, we've got such good fashion sense Brothers and sisters, yeah, put these words down Into your notebook (spit lines like these) We're friends when you're on your knees Make them dance like we were shooting their feet It's just past 8 and I'm feeling young and reckless The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas." We're only liars, but we're the best (we're the best) We're only good for the latest trend We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends Besides, we've got such good fashion sense We're only liars, but we're the best We're only good for the latest trend We're only liars, but we're the best We're only good for the latest trend We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

2. Of all the Gin and joins in the world

You only hold me up like this Cause you don't know who I really am Sometimes I just want to know what it's like to be you We're making out inside crashed cars We're sleeping through all our memories I used to waste my time dreaming of being alive (now I only waste it dreaming of you) Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness Cause all of our moves make up for the silence And oh, the way your makeup stains my pillowcase Like I'll never be the same You only hold me up like this Cause you don't know who I really am I used to waste my time on Waste my time on Waste my time dreaming of being alive (now I only waste it dreaming of you) Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness Cause all of our moves make up for the silence And oh, the way your makeup stains my pillowcase Like I'll never be the same I've got headaches and bad luck but they couldn't touch you, no I've got headaches and bad luck but they couldn't touch you, no I'm not trying You only hold me up like this Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness Cause all of our moves make up for the silence And oh, the way your makeup stains Like I'll never be the same

3. dance dance

She says she's no good with words but I'm worse Barely stuttered out "A joke of a romantic" or {just} stuck to my tongue Weighed down with words too over-dramatic Tonight it's "it can't get much worse" Vs. "no one should ever feel like.." I'm two quarters and a heart down And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds These words are all I have so I'll write them So you need them just to get by Dance, Dance We're falling apart to half time Dance, Dance And these are the lives you'd love to lead Dance, this is the way they'd love If they knew how misery loved me You always fold just before you're found out Drink up its last call Last resort But only the first mistake and I... I'm two quarters and a heart down And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds These words are all I have so I'll write them So you need them just to get by Why don't you show me the little bit of spine You've been saving for his mattress, love Dance, Dance We're falling apart to half time Dance, Dance And these are the lives you'd love to lead Dance, this is the way they'd love If they knew how misery loved me Why don't you show me the little bit of spine You've been saving for his mattress (mattress, mattress) I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me Dance, Dance We're falling apart to half time Dance, Dance And these are the lives you'd love to lead Dance this is the way they'd love (way they'd love) Dance this is the way they'd love (way they'd love) Dance this is the way they'd love If they knew how misery loved me Dance, Dance Dance, Dance Dance, Dance Dance, Dance

4. Sugar were goin down

Am I more than you bargained for yet I've been dying to tell you anything you want to hear Cause that's just who I am this week Lie in the grass, next to the mausoleum I'm just a notch in your bedpost But you're just a line in a song (A notch in your bedpost, but you're just a line in a song) Drop a heart, break a name We're always sleeping in, and sleeping for the wrong team We're going down, down in an earlier round And Sugar, we're going down swinging I'll be your number one with a bullet A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it We're going down, down in an earlier round And Sugar, we're going down swinging I'll be your number one with a bullet A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it Is this more than you bargained for yet Oh don't mind me I'm watching you two from the closet Wishing to be the friction in your jeans Isn't it messed up how I'm just dying to be him I'm just a notch in your bedpost But you're just a line in a song (Notch in your bedpost, but you're just a line in a song) Drop a heart, break a name We're always sleeping in, and sleeping for the wrong team We're going down, down in an earlier round And Sugar, we're going down swinging I'll be your number one with a bullet A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it [x2] Down, down in an earlier round And Sugar, we're going down swinging I'll be your number one with a bullet A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it We're going down, down in an earlier round (Take aim at myself) And Sugar, we're going down swinging (Take back what you said) I'll be your number one with a bullet (Take aim at myself) A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it We're going down, down (down, down) Down, down (down, down) We're going down, down (down, down) A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it We're going down, down in an earlier round (Take aim at myself) And Sugar, we're going down swinging (Take back what you said) I'll be your number one with a bullet (Take aim at myself) A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it

5. nobody puts baby in the corner

Drink down that Gin and Kerosene, And come spit on bridges with me, Just to keep us warm. Light a match to leave me be. Light a match to leave me be. I keep my jealousy close, 'Cause it's all mine. And if you say this makes you happy, Then I'm not the only one lying. [Chorus: x2] Keep quiet, Nothing comes as easy as you. Can I lay in your bed all day? I'll be your best kept secret And your biggest mistake. The hand behind this pen relives a failure every day. And I keep my jealousy close, 'Cause it's all mine. And if you say this makes you happy, Then I'm not the only one lying. Drink down that Gin and Kerosene, And come spit on bridges with me, Just to keep us warm. Light a match to leave me be. Light a match to leave me be. [Chorus x2] So wear me like a locket around your throat. I'll weigh you down. I'll watch you choke. You look so good in blue. You look so good in blue. [x3] [Chorus: x3] [comes back in during chorus 2nd time:] (So wear me like a locket around your throat. I'll weigh you down. I'll watch you choke. You look so good in blue. You look so good in blue.)

6. I've Got A Dark Alley And A Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth (Summer Song)

Joke me something awful just like kisses on the necks of "best friends" We're the kids who feel like dead ends And I want to be known for my hits, not just my misses I took a shot and didn't even come close At trust and love and hope And the poets are just kids who didn't make it Who never had it at all And the record won't stop skipping And the lies just won't stop slipping And besides my reputation's on the line We can fake it for the airwaves Force our smiles, baby, half dead From comparing myself to everyone else around me Please put the doctor on the phone because I'm not making any sense Blame everyone but me for this mess And my back has been breaking from this heavy heart We never seemed so far I'm hopelessly hopeful, that you're just hopeless enough But we never had it at all And the record won't stop skipping And the lies just won't stop slipping And besides my reputation's on the line We can fake it for the airwaves Force our smiles, baby, half dead From comparing myself to everyone else around me to everyone else around me everyone else around me everyone else around me

7. Seven minutes in heaven

I'm sleeping my way out of this one With anyone who will lie down I'll be stuck fixated on one star When the world is crashing down I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I'm not the desperate type But you've got me looking in through blinds I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I'm not the desperate type I’m sitting out dances on the wall Trying to forget everything that isn't you I'm not going home alone Cause I don't do too well on my own I’m sitting out dances on the wall Trying to forget everything that isn't you I'm not going home alone Cause I don't do too well on my own The only thing worse than not knowing Is you thinking that I don't know I'm having another episode I just need a stronger dose I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I'm not the desperate type But you've got me looking in through blinds I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I'm not the desperate type I’m sitting out dances on the wall Trying to forget everything that isn't you I'm not going home alone Cause I don't do too well on my own I’m sitting out dances on the wall Trying to forget everything that isn't you I'm not going home alone Cause I don't do too well on my own I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I'm not the desperate type But you've got me looking in through blinds I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I'm not the desperate type I’m sitting out dances on the wall Trying to forget everything that isn't you I'm not going home alone Cause I don't do too well on my own

8. Sophomore Slump Or Comeback Of The Year

Are we growing up or just going down? It's just a matter of time until we're all found out Take our tears and put them on ice Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light We're the therapists pumping through your speakers Delivering just what you need We're well read and poised We're the best boys We're the chemists who've found the formula To make your heart swell and burst No matter what they say, don't believe a word Cause I'll keep singing this lie if you'll keep believing it I'll keep singing this lie I'll keep singing this lie Are we growing up or just going down? It's just a matter of time until we're all found out Take our tears and put them on ice Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light We're traveled like gypsies Only with worse luck and far less gold We're the kids you used to love But then we grew old We're the lifers here till the bitter end Condemned from the start Ashamed of the way The songs and the words own the beating of our hearts Cause I'll keep singing this lie I'll keep singing this lie Are we growing up or just going down? It's just a matter of time until we're all found out take our tears and put them on ice Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light There's a drug in the thermostat to warm the room up And there's another around to help us bend your trust I've got a sunset in my veins And I need to take a pill to make this town feel okay The best part of "Believe" is the "Lie", I hope you sing along and you steal a line I need to keep you like this in my mind So give in or just give up [x2] Are we growing up or just going down? Are we growing up or just going down? It's just a matter of time until we're all found out Take our tears and put them on ice Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light

9. champagne for my real friends real pain for my sham friends

You are a getaway car, a rush of blood to the head But me, I'm just the covers on top of your bed You steer away in a rear view mirror, you make my head swim I keep you warm and won't ask you where you've been With your backless black dress soaked to the skin When it's said and done they're all scrambling And we're friends, yeah we're friends Just because we move units Strike us like matches, cause everyone deserves the flames We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame At least everyone is trying, everyone is shining Everyone deserves the flames but it's such a shame Such a shame The sounds of this small town make my ears hurt Oh yeah, you caught me. But I caught you one worse They say, "You want a war? You've got a war." But who are you fighting for? The tides out, the ship's run aground We drown traitors in shallow water With your backless black dress soaked to the skin When it's said and done they're all scrambling And we're friends, yeah we're friends Just because we move units Strike us like matches, cause everyone deserves the flames We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame At least everyone is trying, everyone is shining Everyone deserves the flames but it's such a shame Such a shame At least everyone is trying, everyone is shining Everyone deserves the flames but it's such a shame Such a shame Strike us like matches, cause everyone deserves the flames We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame At least everyone is trying, everyone is shining Everyone deserves the flames but it's such a shame Such a shame

10. i slept with someone in fall out boy and all i got was this stupid song written about me

I found the cure to growing older And you're the only place that feels like home Just so you know, you'll never know And some secrets weren't meant to be told I found the cure to growing older I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends And I am sorry my conscience called in sick again And I've got arrogance down to a science Oh, and I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends [Chorus: x2] Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's So fitting, so fitting of the way you are You can't cover it up Can't cover it up Find a safe place, brace yourself, bite your lip I'm sending your fingernails and empty bottles you've sipped Back to your family cause I know you will be missed So you can find a safe place, brace yourself They call kids like us vicious and carved out of stone But for what we've become, we just feel more alone Always weigh what I've lost against what I left Progress report: I am missing you to death [Chorus: x2] Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's So fitting, so fitting of the way you are You can't cover it up Can't cover it up Someone old No one new Feeling borrowed Always blue Someone old No one new Feeling borrowed Always blue Someone old No one new Feeling borrowed Always blue Someone old No one new Always borrowed Always you I found a cure to growing older I found a cure to growing older [Chorus: x2] Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's So fitting, so fitting of the way you are You can't cover it up Can't cover it up

11. a little less sixteen candles a little more touch me

I confess, I messed up dropping "I'm sorrys" like you're still around And I know you dressed up said "hey kid you'll never live this down" And you're just the girl all the boys want to dance with And I'm just the boy who's had too many chances I'm sleeping on your folk's porch again, dreaming She said, she said, she said, "Why don't you just drop dead?" I don't blame you for being you But you can't blame me for hating it So say, what are you waiting for? Kiss her, kiss her I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late Write me off, give up on me Cause darling, what did you expect I'm just off a lost cause a long shot, don't even take this bet You can make all the moves, you can aim all the spotlights Get all the sighs and the moans just right I'm sleeping on your folk's porch again, dreaming She said, she said, she said, "Why don't you just drop dead?" I don't blame you for being you But you can't blame me for hating it So say, what are you waiting for? Kiss her, kiss her I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late I'm just always on You said you'd keep me honest (you're always on) But I won't call you on it I don't blame you for being you But you can't blame me for hating it So say, what are you waiting for? Kiss her, kiss her I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late

12. get busy living or get busy dying

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters We never stood a chance And I'm not sure if it matters If you are the shores, I am the waves begging for big moons I’m mailing letters to addresses in a ghost town (your secret's out) I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to) Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one And it's mind over (you don't don't) matter This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters But it must be said again that all us boys are just screaming Into microphones for attention Because we're just so bored We never knew that you would pick it apart, oh I'm falling apart to songs about hips and hearts (your secret's out) I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to) Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one And it's mind over (you don't don't) matter I used to obsess over living, Now I only obsess over you Tell me you'd like boys like me better In the dark lying on top of you This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters [x4] I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to) Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one And it's mind over (you don't don't don't don't) matter [Talking:] From day one I talked about getting out But not forgetting about How my worst fears are letting out He said why put a new address On the same old loneliness When breathing just passes the time Until we all just get old and die Now talking's just a waste of breath And living's just a waste of death And why put a new address On the same old loneliness And this is you and me And me and you Until we've got nothing left

13. xo

I comb the crowd and pick you out My mouth moves too fast for you to figure it out It starts eyes closed to fingers crossed "To I swear, I say" "To I swear, I say" To hands between legs, to "whatever it takes" To drinks at the club to the bar To the keys to your car To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door To the love, I left my conscience pressed Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer "What did it ever do for me" I say (I say, I say, I say) It never calls me when I'm down Love never wanted me But I took it anyway Put your ear to the speaker And choose love or sympathy But never both Love never wanted me "I hoped you choked And crashed your car" Hey "tear catcher", that's all that you are And ever were From the start I swear, I say I swear, I say To hands between legs, to "whatever it takes" To drinks at the club to the bar To the keys to your car To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door To the love, I left my conscience pressed Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer "What did it ever do for me" I say It never calls me when I'm down Love never wanted me But I took it anyway Put your ear to the speaker And choose love or sympathy But never both, no To the love I left my conscience pressed Through the keyhole I watched you dress Kiss and tell (Loose lips sink ships) [x3] To the love I left my conscience pressed [x3] Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer "What did it ever do for me" I say
