Fall Out Boy – The Phoenix lyrics

Put on your war paint

You are a brick tied to me that's dragging me down
Strike a match and I'll burn you to the ground

We are the Jack-O-Lanterns in July
Setting fire to the sky
Here, here comes this rising tide so come on


Put on your war paint

Cross walks and crossed hearts and hope-to-dies
Silver clouds with grey lining


So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
One maniac at a time we will take it back

Time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
Dance alone to the beat of your heart


Hey, young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing all-vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix

Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Bring home the boys in scraps
Scrap metal the tanks

Get hitched make a career out of robbing banks
Because the world is just a teller and we are wearing black masks
"You broke our spirits," says the note we pass


So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
One maniac at a time we will take it back
Time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
Dance alone to the beat of your heart

Hey, young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Wearing all-vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Put on your war paint

The war is won before it's begun
Release the doves
Surrender love

X4

Hey, young blood, doesn't it feel
Like our time is running out

I'm gonna change you like a remix
Wearing all-vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Hey, young blood, doesn't it feel
Like our time is running out
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Put on your war paint

    After the band's hiatus, they rise up again as the reborn Fall Out Boy. All the problems of the past have been forgotten. They've returned to tell us that their music lives once again. They were gone for a few years but now they have returned. They will do their own thing regardless on other people's opinions. We now see them as more confident, more developed and more mature. The kids from yesterday have grown up to be men with families.

    Am I the only one who think and feels that this songs talks about the younger generation and how we can do something about the current state of our living and our country. The oppression, affliction and the not so satisfactory results of some government offices in terms of the safety, quality of life of us citizens?
