I've been let loose and now I'm crawling up the walls
Word is I got away and now I must be caught

Don't leave, take it from me
I've been more than a king
I can't take that, I can't take that

I'm going crazy and I've been awake for days
My mirrors are stained with pain and portraits of your face

Don't leave, take it from me,
You're my dirty disease.
I can't take that, I can't take that

My flatlined inhibition is my ammunition
I'm just fighting to get by
Just give me some direction
I'll be your affection
How could you leave me behind?

I'm a mess and you're worse
Just give me time
To give you a waste of time
One of those nights
When you leave me for no reason
I'll give you a reason

[Brendon Urie]:
If seconds heal the wounds
I'll put these tips on you

I brought apologies I've tied in a bouquet
Just to find out that my face had been replaced
Deceived, it was a breeze,
I was tossed to the street

I can't take that, I can't take that

My flatlined inhibition is my ammunition
I'm just fighting to get by
Just give me some direction
I'll be your affection
How could you leave me behind?

I'm a mess and you're worse
Just give me time
To give you a waste of time
One of those nights
When you leave me for no reason
I'll give you a reason
(X2)

[Brendon Urie]:
If seconds heal the wounds
I'll put these tips on you
When faith is left to prove
It's all you have to lose.

[Patrick Stump]:
I'm a mess and you're worse
Just give me time
To give you a waste of time
One of those nights
When you leave me for no reason
I'll give you a reason

I'm a mess and you're worse
Just give me time
To give you a waste of time
One of those nights
When you leave me for no reason
I'll give you a reason

    So, this is one of my new favorite songs. I had forgotten about if for a while there, because I knew it when it first came out, and I'm completely obsessed with fall out boy and I admire the work of the cab and panic! So I think the song means that the guy is having trouble making decisions about his girl because she drives him crazy in both a good and bad way. This is particularly shown in the part "pain and portraits of your face" because of his mixed feeling about the girl-one minute she's a painful memory and the next she's gorgeous and stunning and the only one for him. My favorite parts of the songs are all the metaphors and quirky lyrics. That's one of the top things I like about fob. This is such a great song(=
