Panic! At The Disco – Roaring 20s lyrics
[Verse 1]
Broadway is black like a sinkhole
Everyone raced to the suburbs
And I'm on the rooftop with curious strangers
This is the oddest of summers

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Maybe I'll medicate, maybe inebriate
Strange situations, I get anxious
Maybe I'll smile a bit, maybe the opposite
But pray that they don't call me thankless

[Hook]
My tell-tale heart's a hammer in my chest
Cut me a silk tie tourniquet

[Chorus]
This is my roaring, roaring 20s, I don't
Even know me, roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
Roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
My roaring, roaring 20s, I don't
Even know me, roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
Roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna, I wanna go home

[Verse 2]
Oscars and Emmy's and Grammy's
Everyone here is a trophy
And I'm sipping bourbon, the future's uncertain
The past on the pavement below me

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Maybe I'll elevate, maybe I'm second rate
So unaware of my status
Maybe I'm overjoyed, maybe I'm paranoid
Designed me up in straight jackets

[Hook]
My tell-tale heart's a hammer in my chest
Cut me a silk tie tourniquet

[Chorus]
This is my roaring, roaring 20s, I don't
Even know me, roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
Roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
My roaring, roaring 20s, I don't
Even know me, roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
Roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna, I wanna go home

[Bridge]
Hallucinations only mean
That your brain is on fire
But it's Lord of the Flies in my mind tonight
I don't know if I will survive
Lighters up if you're feelin' me
Fade to black if you're not mine
Cause I just need a sign or a signal inside

[Last Chorus]
This is my roaring, roaring 20s, I don't
Even know me, roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
Roll me a, roll me a blunt
This is my roaring, roaring 20s, I don't
Even know me, roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna go home
Roll me like a blunt,
Cause I wanna, I wanna go home

[Outro]
Oh-woah
Oh-woah
I wanna go home
