Fall Out Boy Lyrics

American Beauty / American Psycho Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Irresistible

Coming in unannounced, drag my nails on the tile
I just follow your scent, you can just follow my smile
All of your flaws are aligned with this mood of mine
Cutting me to the bone, nothing left to leave behind
You ought to keep me concealed just like I was a weapon
I didn't come for a fight but I will fight til the end
This will not be a battle, might not turn out okay
You know you look so Seattle but you feel so LA

And I love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, yeah
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby

I'm gonna get you to burst just like you were a bubble
Frame me up on your wall just to keep me out of trouble
Like a moth getting trapped in the light by fixation
Truly free, love it baby, I'm talking no inflation
Too many war wounds and not enough wars
Too few rounds in the ring and not enough settled scores
Too many sharks, not enough blood in the waves
You know I give my love a f-f-four letter name

And I love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, yeah
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby

You're second hand smoke, second hand smoke
I breathe you in, but honey I don't know what you're doing to me
Mon chérie but the truth catches up with us eventually
Try to say live, live and let live
But I'm no good, good at lip service
Except when they're yours, mi amore
I'm coming for you and I'm making war

And I still love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, yeah
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby

American Beauty / American Psycho

[Chorus:]
She's an American beauty
I'm an American psycho
She's an American beauty
I'm an American
I'm an American
American Psycho
(whoa whoa whoa)

I'm an American
I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

I think I fell in love again
Maybe I just took too much cough medicine
I'm the best worst thing that hasn't happened to you yet
The best worst thing (whoa)

You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
And you can kill me, kill me or let God sort 'em out
And you can kill me, kill me or (whoa)

[Chorus]

I'm an American
I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

(whoa whoa whoa)

I'm an American
I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

I wish I dreamt in the shape of your mouth
But it's your thread count I really care about
Stay up 'til the lights go out
Stay up, stay up

You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
And as we're drifting off to sleep all those dirty thoughts of me
They were never yours to keep, keep (whoa)

Alter boys alter boys
We're the things that love destroys
(I'm an American, I'm an American)
You, me, us, them
We're just resurrection men
(I'm an American, I'm an American)
Us, we were only meant
to make you live again
(I'm an American, I'm an American)
Us, we were pity sex,
nothing more and nothing less
(I'm an American)

[Chorus:]
She's an American beauty
I'm an American psycho
She's an American beauty
I'm an American
I'm an American
American Psycho
(whoa whoa whoa)

I'm an American
I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

(whoa whoa whoa)

I'm an American
I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

Centuries

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries
And just one mistake
Is all it will take.
We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

Remember me for centuries

Mummified my teenage dreams
No, it's nothing wrong with me
The kids are all wrong,
The stories are off
Heavy metal broke my heart

Come on, come on and let me in
The bruises on your thighs like my fingerprints
And this is for tonight
I thought that you would feel
I never meant for you to fix yourself

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries
And just one mistake
Is all it will take.
We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

Remember me for centuries

And I can't stop 'til the whole world knows my name
'Cause I was only born inside my dreams
Until you die for me, as long as there is a light, my shadow's over you
'Cause I am the opposite of amnesia
And you're a cherry blossom
You're about to bloom
You look so pretty, but you're gone so soon

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries
And just one mistake
Is all it will take.
We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

Remember me for centuries

We've been here forever
And here's the frozen fruit
I could scream forever
We are the poisoned youth

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries
And just one mistake
Is all it will take,
We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

The Kids Aren't Alright

Stuck in the jet wash
Bad trip I couldn't get off
And maybe I bit off more than I could chew
And overhead of the aqua blue

Fall to your knees, bring on the rapture
Blessed be the boys, time can't capture
On film or between the sheets
I always fall from your window to the pitch black streets

And with the black banners raised
As the crooked smiles fade
Former heroes who quit too late
Who just wanna fill up the trophy case again

And in the end
I'd do it all again
I think you're my best friend
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright?

I'll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright?

I'm not passive, but aggressive
Take note, it's not impressive
Empty your sadness
Like you're dumping your purse on my bedroom floor
We put your curse in reverse

And it's our time now if you want it to be
Maul the world like the carnival bear set free
And your love is anemic, and I can't believe
That you couldn't see it coming for me

And I still feel that rush in my veins
It twists my head just a bit too thin
All those people in those old photographs I've seen are dead

And in the end
I'd do it all again
I think you're my best friend
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright?

I'll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright?

And sometimes I just wanna sit around and gaze at my shoes, yeah
And let your dirty sadness fill me up just like a balloon

And in the end
I'd do it all again
I think you're my best friend
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright?

I'll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright?

Uma Thurman

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
Oh, oh, keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
Bury me till I confess
She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
And I can't get you out of my head

The stench, the stench, of summer sex
And CK Eternity, oh hell yes
Divide me down to the smallest I can be
Put your, put you v-v-v-venom in me

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
Oh, oh, keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
Bury me till I confess
She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
And I can't get you out of my head

The blood, the blood, the blood of the lamb
It's worth two lions, but here I am
And I slept in last night's clothes and tomorrow's dreams
But they're not quite what they seem

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
Oh, oh, keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

You'll find your way
And may death find you alive
Take me down the line
In Gem City we turn the tide
You'll find your way
And may death find you alive
Take me down the line
In Gem City we turn the tide

She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
Bury me till I confess
She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
And I can't get you out of my head

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
Oh, oh, keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
Oh, oh, keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

Jet Pack Blues

I got those jet pack blues
Just like Judy
The kind that make June feel like September
I'm the last one that you'll ever remember

And I'm trying to find my peace of mind
Behind these two white highway lines
When the city goes silent
The ringing in my ears gets violent

She's in a long black coat tonight
Waiting for me in the downpour outside
She's singing "Baby come home" in a melody of tears
While the rhythm of the rain keeps time

And I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"

Did you ever love her? Do you know?
Or did you never want to be alone?

When she was singing "Baby, come home"
"Baby, come home"

I've got those jet pack blues
Fight off the light tonight and just stay with me
Honey, don't you leave

Don't you remember how we used to split a drink?
It never mattered what it was
I think our hands were just that close
The sweetness never lasted, no

She's in a long black coat tonight
Waiting for me in the downpour outside
She's singing "Baby come home" in a melody of tears
While the rhythm of the rain keeps time

And I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"

Did you ever love her? Do you know?
Or did you never want to be alone?

When she was singing "Baby, come home"
"Baby, come home"

She's in a long black coat tonight
Waiting for me in the downpour outside
She's singing "Baby come home" in a melody of tears
While the rhythm of the rain keeps time

And I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"
I remember "Baby, come home"

Did you ever love her? Do you know?
Or did you never want to be alone?

When she was singing "Baby, come home"
"Baby, come home"

Novocaine

This is a black, black ski mask song
So put all of your anger on
In the truly gruesome do we trust
I will always land on you like a sucker punch

Singing I am the worst, I am the worst nightmare
I am the worst, I am the worst nightmare

If you knew, knew what the bluebirds sang at you, you
We'd never sing along
Cast them out cause this is our culture
These new flats are nothing but vultures

Because they took our love and they filled me up
Filled me up with novocaine and now I'm just stuck
Now I'm just stuck
And they took my name, I'm just a son of a gun
So don't stop, don't stop until your heart goes numb
Now I'm just stuck
Don't feel a thing for you

I'm just a problem that doesn't want to be solved
So could you please hold your applause
Take this sideshow and all it's freaks
And turn it into the silver screen

Singing I am the worst, I am the worst nightmare
I am the worst, I am the worst nightmare

If you knew, knew what the bluebirds sang at you, you
We'd never sing along
Cast them out cause this is our culture
These new flats are nothing but vultures

Because they took our love and they filled me up
Filled me up with novocaine and now I'm just stuck
Now I'm just stuck
And they took my name, I'm just a son of a gun
So don't stop, don't stop until your heart goes numb
Now I'm just stuck
Don't feel a thing for you

I'm still afraid the battle's gonna swallow me whole
I ?? like a photo that's been over-exposed

They took our love and they filled me up
Filled me up with novocaine and now I'm just stuck
Now I'm just stuck
And they took my name, I'm just a son of a gun
So don't stop, don't stop until your heart goes numb
Now I'm just stuck
Don't feel a thing for you

Fourth Of July

(You and I were, you and I were fire.
You and I were, you and I were fire.
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fire)

It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom, too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I'd never miss you
But I guess you'll never know
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home
On the fourth of July

I'll be as honest as you let me
I miss your early morning company
If you get me
You are my favorite "what if"
You are my best "I'll never know"

I'm starting to forget
Just what summer ever meant to you
What did it ever mean to you?

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean any of it
I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa
In between being young and being right
You were my Versailles at night

It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom, too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I'd never miss you
But I guess you'll never know
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home
On the fourth of July

My 9 to 5 is cutting open old scars
Again and again 'til I'm stuck in your head
Had my doubts, but I let them out
You are the drought
And I'm the holy water you have been without

And all my thoughts of you
They could heat or cool the room
And no, don't tell me you're crying
Oh, honey, you don't have to lie

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean any of it
I just got too lonely, lonely, whoa
In between being young and being right
You were my Versailles at night

It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom, too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I'd never miss you
But I guess you'll never know
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home
On the fourth of July

I wish I'd known how much you loved me
I wish I cared enough to know
I'm sorry every song's about you
The torture of small talk with someone you used to love

It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom, too
It was the fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I'd never miss you
But I guess you'll never know
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home
On the fourth of July

Favorite Record

Do, do do, do you remember when we drove, we drove
Drove through the night
And we danced, we danced, to [?] we danced, we danced

And I confessed, confessed to you riding shotgun
Underneath the purple skies
And we danced, we danced, with windows down
And we danced, we danced

You were the song stuck in my head
Every song I've ever loved
Played again and again and again
And you can get what you want but it's never enough
And I'll spin for you like your favorite records used to
And I'll spin for you like your favorite records used to

And I can't, I can't, I can't remember
Just how to forget, forget the way that we danced
We danced, to [?] and we danced, we danced

And when you asked, you asked me how I'm doing
Like you know, you know how much better off I am
And when we danced, we danced, with windows down
And we danced, we danced

You were the song stuck in my head
Every song I've ever loved
Played again and again and again
And you can get what you want but it's never enough
And I'll spin for you like your favorite records used to
And I'll spin for you like your favorite records used to

I'll spin, I'll spin, I'll spin, I'll spin
For you, for you, for you, for you, for yeah...

(Spin for you like your favorite records used to...)

Immortals

They say we are what we are,
But we don't have to be,
I'm bad behavior but I do it in the best way,
I'll be the watcher (watcher),
Of the eternal flame,
I'll be the guard dog,
of all your fever dreams

Oooooooh
I am the sand in the bottom half,
Of the hourglass (glass, glass)
Oooooooh,
I try to picture me without you but I can't

'Cause we could be Immortals, Immortals,
Just not for long, for long,
And live with me forever now,
Pull the blackout curtains down,
Just not for long, for long,
Because we could be Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals

Sometimes the only pay off,
For having any faith,
Is when it's tested again and again,
Everyday,
I'm still comparing your past,
To my future,
It might be your wound, but they're my sutures,

Oooooooh
I am the sand in the bottom half,
Of the hourglass (glass, glass)
Oooooooh,
I try to picture me without you but I can't,

'Cause we could be Immortals, Immortals,
Just not for long, for long,
And live with me forever now,
Pull the blackout curtains down,
Just not for long, for long,
Because we could be Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals

Immortals,
And live with me forever now,
Pull the blackout curtains down

Because we could be Immortals, Immortals,
Just not for long, for long,
We could be Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immooooooo- Immortals,
Immortals

Twin Skeletons (Hotel In NYC)

There's a room in a hotel in New York City
That shares our fate and deserves our pity
I don't want to remember it all
The promises I made if you just hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

I just need enough of you to dull the pain
To get me through the night
Until we're twins again
Until we're stripped down to the skeletons again
Until we're saints just swimming in our sins again
And there's a jet black crow droning on and on and on
Up above our heads droning on and on and on
keep making trouble till find what you love
I need a new partner in crime and your shotgun

There's a room in a hotel in New York City
That shares our fate and deserves our pity
I don't want to remember it all
The promises are made if you just hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

A birth and a death on the same day
And honey I only appear so I can fade away
I wanna throw my hands in the air and scream
And I can just die laughing on your spiral of shame
And there's a jet black crow droning on and on and on
Up above our heads droning on and on and on
Hit it never quit it I have been through the wreck
But I can scream enough to show my face in the light of day

There's a room in a hotel in New York City
That shares our fate and deserves our pity
I don't want to remember it all
The promises are made if you just hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on [3x]
