Oh, well imagine, as I'm pacing the pews in a church corridor,
And I can't help but to hear, no I can't help but to hear an exchanging of words:
"What a beautiful wedding! What a beautiful wedding!" says a bridesmaid to a waiter.
"Oh yes, but what a shame, what a shame, the poor groom's bride is a whore."

I'd chime in with a "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of...

Oh, well in fact, well I'll look at it this way, I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne
Oh! Well in fact, well I'll look at it this way, I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne, pour the champagne

I'd chime in with a "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door!"No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.

Again...

I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door!"No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.

Again...

    The video doesn't show a real wedding, it shows the "groom's" mind.
    The man knows his wife is cheating, the waiter and bridesmaid symbolize other people who obviously know this girl is a "whore."
    brendan urie plays the mans conscience. He is telling the man to come to his senses, by showing him how much of a circus his relationship to the woman is. When urie and the circus come in, she is the only one who is truly worried, because she knows the truth. At the end, the man realizes that she doesn't love him and he should move on. This is symbolized by him and his consciense becoming one again at the end of the video and we see the man is happy.

    Oh! There is A meaning right here!
    @Twilight Rox; read on my friend! : ]

    Once more I'll type this and people better take note. Ryan ross wrote these songs (On A fever you can't sweat out) about his cheating girlfriend, religion, and his life!

    This one is also about his cheating girlfriend. So it's about a guy and a girl, common, and they are getting married but when she goes off she meets up with her "other lover" and they go and make out and sh* and they get caught. Then the groom says "Haven't you people ever heard of closing the God damn door!" Obviously, he wouldn't have mined if he wouldn't have found out his wife-to-be had or was cheating on him; he would have liked it the other way(not knowing).
    So there! Is your meaning! And trust me, their songs have meanings and if you listen and do your research you don't have to rely(sp?) on me! : ] (Oh, and I'm not saying your stupid! Honestly!)

    Uhm, maybe it's like if you see the vid the grooms side of the church, it's empty, maybe the whore did'nt let him bring any of his friends to the wedding, cuz they seem to come in with Brendon and sit on his side, maybe they are trying to tell him that his wife to be is cheating. And she is nervous cuz she thinks his friends knows, and she gets all mad cuz he brings his friends to theire wedding, I dunno it's just a guess.
