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 on
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

    Boys will be boys.

    Bullet holes line the walls.
    You're pulling the trigger all wrong.
    Give me attention.
    When I say Shotgun, you say wedding...

    Guns.

    Yes this book is based off of the book invisible monsters. Its a good book you should read it. Its about a girl who is a model and then her jaw is shot off and she is no longer beautiful. In the book she often expresses her emotions and thoughts by saying " give me empathy flash give me sympathy flash give me apathy flash" etc. Because her photographer would command at her different emotions to express for the pictures. So thats why the song says " give me envy give me malice give me your attention" and talks about " this is screaming photo op" when it says "shes not bleeding on the ballroom floor just for the attention" it is talking about another model (brandy) who is shot and bleeding all over the ballroom floor at a wedding and she is always wants attention but obviously in this it wasnt for the attention. " heres the setting fashion magazines line the walls now the walls line the bullet holes" is talking about how they are all models and brandy was shot and what not. "boys will be boys hiding in estrogen and abergine dreams" the main characters brother, who is ends up being brandy (hes a tranny) he is hiding from the main character that he is her brother so he is "hiding" in estrogen ( pills to make him have more estrogine because he is a tranny) and abergine dreams is the make up that he uses and is often talked about in the book.

    Fashion magazines line the walls now
    The walls line the bullet holes...

    Uh, people who are saying we're NOT real Panic! fans, if you actually bought the CD, or listen to it on Rhapsody, you know very well it's called /Time To Dance/. So shut up. :P

    Anyway, I think this song is either about some wedding attempted to be faked but is completely screwed up,
    Or an idea that's escaped my head. xP
