I'm coming apart at the seams.
Pitching myself as leads in other people's dreams.
Like buzz, buzz, buzz.
Doc, there's a hole where something was.
Doc, there's a hole where something was.

Fell out of bed.
Butterfly bandage,
But don't worry.
You'll never remember,
Your head is far too blurry.
Put him in the back of a squad car
Restrain that man
He needs his head put through a cat scan.
Hey editor, I'm undeniable
Hey Doctor, I'm certifiable
I'm a loose bolt of a complete machine
What a match:
I'm half doomed and you're semi-sweet

So boycott love
Detox just to retox
And I'd promise you anything for another shot at life
Imperfect boys
With their perfect ploys
Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy

Little girl
You got my staring eye
Or was it just a telescopic camera lie
Pretty dolls in the highway
Truck stop stalls
Lock-less jails to deny my rules
So rookies leave your badge and your gun on the desk when you leave the room
I'm a loose bolt of a complete machine
What a match:
I'm half doomed and you're semi-sweet

Boycott love
Detox just to retox
And I'd promise you anything for another shot at life
Imperfect boys
With their perfect lives
Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy

Detox just to re-tox
Detox just to re-tox
Detox just to re-tox
Detox just to re-tox

So boycott love (Boycott love)
Detox just to re-tox
Boycott love ((Boycott love)

So boycott love (Boycott love)
Detox just to re-tox
And I’d promise you anything for another shot at life
Imperfect boys with their perfect lives
Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy
(wants to hear you sing)
Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy
(wants to hear you sing about tragedy)

Whoooa oooah

    steve0827 - The only part of this song that is taken from Baba O'Riley is one chord progression used by the rhythm guitar and bass. I'm sure Fall Out Boy isn't the only band to write a song using this progression. The Who probably wasn't even the first to use it. If artists wrote songs with 100% original scores, there wouldn't be anymore new music. You've cited 24 seconds that Fall Out Boy has taken from The Who. What's next? Are you going to tell us how they shouldn't have stolen the name Thriller from Michael Jackson? Did you know that Aerosmith has a guitarist named Joe? I bet Fall Out Boy stole that idea too. Man, I guess they've lost it. They can't even write an album without stealing from classic rock bands and recycling old lyrics. It's a shame that they wrote an album with 13 new tracks and they had to steal 24 seconds of it from The Who.

    Anyway, I love this song. The sample of Baba O'Riley really adds to the power of the intro and verses. I saw FOB live in Maryland a week ago and they opened with this song. It's even better to see it live.

    Steve0827 -- I'm left to wonder if you've ever even heard Baba O'Riley. Fall Out Boy copied nothing. The drum beat is sort of similar, but it's definitely not the same thing.

    On topic with the song, this is pretty amazing. I didn't know the lyrics before, and some of these are wrong, but they're still really awesome. It's a memorable opener, to be sure.

    It's "Painted dolls in the highway truck-stop stalls, lot lizard scales cool your nightlife moods," and "Imperfect boys with their perfect ploys." Basically, it's a song about crime and punishment. The guy in the first verse was either drinking or on drugs and committed a crime, and the guy in the second verse solicited sex from a truck-stop prostitute and got busted by the cops.

    yes. i'm sooo agreeing! pete ha the most amazing lyrics. during an interview with ap he said that he tried to write this album from all the band members P.O.V so i'm guessing that this song was written about joe and his recent engagement. i think pete is trying to convey the message of joe may not be to sure about the engagement yet his fiance completes him. and i think that he is promising the fiance anything for him to experience this part of his life again, maybe he had a former relationship that didnt turn out so well? idk

    no matter how much i love fall out boy, they can not get away with stealing part of the background for baba o'riley by the who. and for all those who don't know who the who are, they are a classic rock band from the 60's. it is obvious that they took the background and put it in the song from :32-:56. i'm kind of sad about this.
