"Sending Postcards from a Plane Crash (Wish You Were Here)" as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman and Andrew Hurley....
I am such a sucker
And I'm always the last to know
My insides are copper
And I'd kill to make them gold
Conversation got me here: another night alone in the city
So make my bed the grave and shovel dirt onto my sheets

Every friend we ever had in common
I will sever the tie with you
You can thank your lucky stars
That everything I wish for will never come true

When you go, I will forget everything about you

I've seen sinking ships go down with more grace than you

Turn this up I'll tune you out
Another night alone in the city
Fake it like you matter cause that's a lie we can both keep

    General CommentI am such a sucker
    And I'm always the last to know- he falls for the wrong ones, and finds out
    My insides are copper
    I'd kill to make them gold- he wants to be a better person
    Conversation got me here: another night alone in the city- arguments with someone
    So make my bed the grave and shovel dirt onto my sheets- he caused the argument so he has to deal with it

    Every friend we ever had in common
    I will sever the tie, sever the tie with you- doesnt want anything to do with her
    You can thank your lucky stars
    That everything I wish for will never come true- he knows his life is 'fucked' without her

    When you go, I will forget everything about you
    When you go, I will forget everything about you

    I have seen sinking ships go down with more grace than you- she made it obvious that she was cheating maybe and she could have hid it better

    Turn this up I'll tune you out
    Another night alone in the city, yeah
    Fake it like you matter-that's a lie we can both keep, ohh- sex reference ?

    Every friend we ever had in common
    I will sever the tie, sever the tie with you
    You can thank your lucky stars
    That everything I wish for will never come true

    When you go, I will forget everything about you
    When you go, I will forget everything about you

    I will forget
    (When you go, I will forget everything about you)
    When you go
    (I will forget everything about you)

    Every friend we ever had in common
    I will sever the tie, sever the tie with you
    You can thank your lucky stars
    That everything I wish for will never come true

    General Commentthis one is another basic "I'm pissed because you broke up with me" tune. what sets fall out boy's stuff from the sea of other "I'm pissed because you broke up with me" songs is the dazzling wordplay. I think in this one, he his former lover to die (evident in the song's title, and elsewhere), and then he wants to die too (the "make my bed the grave..." line). but as always, he only half-means what he's saying, which is evident in the chorus.
