Well, she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor
Just for the attention.
'Cause that's just ridiculous-ly odd
Well she sure is gonna get it
Here's the setting:
Fashion magazines line the walls now
The walls line the bullet holes...

Have some composure!
Where is your posture?
Oh no, no!
You're pulling the trigger,
Pulling the trigger all wrong

Have some composure!
Where is your posture?
Oh no, no!
You're pulling the trigger,
Pulling the trigger all wrong

Give me envy
Give me malice
Give me attention
Give me envy
Give me malice
Baby, give me a break!

When I say "Shotgun" you say "Wedding"
"Shotgun" , "Wedding"
"Shotgun" , "Wedding"

Well, she didn't choose this role
But she'll play it and make it sincere so
You cry, you cry
(Give me a break!)
But they believe it from the tears
And the teeth right down to the blood
At her feet
Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and wearing aubergine dreams
(Give me a break! Break! Break! Break!)

Have some composure!
Where is your posture?
Oh no, no!
You're pulling the trigger,
Pulling the trigger all wrong

Have some composure!
Where is your posture?
Oh no, no!
You're pulling the trigger,
Pulling the trigger all wrong

*Come on, this is screaming "Photo op." op...
Come on,this is screaming "Photo op. op........
Come on, come
This is screaming, This is screaming,
This is screaming, "Photo op."

*Boys will be boys baby
Boys will be boys
Boys will be boys baby
Boys will be boys

Give me envy
Give me malice
Give me your attention
Give me envy
Give me malice
Baby, give me a break!
When I say "Shotgun" you say "Wedding"
"Shotgun" , "Wedding"
"Shotgun" , "Wedding"

Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and boys will be boys
Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and wearing aubergine dreams

    owls_atmydisco is totally right!!
    and also wen the girl loses her composure, i think the whole idea of her shooting the wrong person and then shooting herself is wat inspired the title "its time to dance" - as the whole scenario is a false, unrehearsed dance...

    ...i think... lol

    I think this song is about a girl(supposedly an actrss or something like that) who is being forced to be something that she isn't. "she didn't choose this role"
    and then there is these two guys, one she's being forced to marry, and the other she loves. and i guess when it says "you're pulling the trigger all wrong" she kills the wrong one. And the setting is in her room. where the fashion magazines are. then after she kills the wrong one she loses her composure and runs into the bathroom and shoots herself.

    oh, and the boys with the aubergine dreams, i'm thinking that just has to do with all the drunk men she's forced to be around at parties.

    i'm probably completely wrong. but thanks for reading this anyways:]

    This one...er...I don't know really. I can't figure it out BUT I'm guessing it's either about religion OR just his life(his as in Ryan Ross, who wrote the song)
