Innocence.
Sunk the glow and drowned in covers,
Send for all your absent lovers things.

Sheepish Wolves.
Looking lived in eating buttons,
Wink, just don’t put your teeth on me.

Accidents.
Let the evening in the backdoor,
filled the room ceiling to the floor.

Beat backbones.
Grazed the poem and made it strange,
I wasn’t born to be a skeleton.

Go on,
Grab your hat and fetch a camera.
Go on, film the world before it happens.

Jealous orchard.
The sky is falling off the ceiling
While I’m tucking fibs into a cookie jar.

Bombed reverie.
It’s useless searching in the cupboards
When everything you have is on your back.

    >_O can we please stop calling them emo? I think we've already established that they're not!!! Emo would be Hawthorn Heights or My Chemical Romance.

    Seriously, if you think they're emo, you must be tarded or something. Either that or your not a true fan. True fans don't just turn on their band when they put out an album you don't like.

    Oh-Shit Casey has a few good points. It's that ya, there afraid of being labled "emo", which is far from what they are. But, they changed there style DRAMATICALLY which was a suckish move.

    Okay. First of all...
    To clear it up.

    This album took 4 years to write because Ryry re-wrote everything.
    And no, THey didn't change because they were labled 'Emo'.
    If you think they are so freaking horrible, go listen to your own gothic emo stuff.

    Panic's return was hard for them.
    They lost a band member a while ago, remember?

    They wanted to try something different. And it resulted insomething very great. After a while you start to appriciate the album.
    And also, Their last album's piano section was similar.
    It's not a sucky album!

    And now the song:
    This song is telling you that you should slow down.
    Be whatever you like.
    Dont get malicious or angry, jealous, or anything.

    Cuz it is what it is. :]

    'Film the world before it happens'

    Means that you shouldnt want to know anything before it happens at all.

    Ok Darkchild.
    There is an interview with Panic where Brenden Uri said they were called "EMO" by the press and soi they decided to change it up a bit.
    I'm a Panic fan but not to this album.
