"Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of Things to Do Today" as written by and Wentz/stump/trohman/hurley....
Light that smoke for giving up on me
And one just cause they'll kill you sooner than my expectations
To my favorite liar, to my favorite scar:
"I could have died with you"
I hope you choke on those words, that kiss, that bottle I confess
Now ash yourself out on the insides, when I said I loved you I swear I lied

Let's play this game called "when you catch fire"
I wouldn't piss to put you out
Stop burning bridges and drive off of them
So I can forget about you

So bury me in memory
His smile's your rope
Wrap it tight around your throat

On the drive home
Joke about the kid you used to see
And his jealousy
Breaking hearts has never looked so cool
As when you wrap your car around a tree
Your makeup looks great next to his teeth

    General CommentI think it's super weird that nobody who's seen the movie (let alone fall out boy themselves) didn't get the quote as it appears in Rushmore verbatum.. In the movie Max says "tell that stupid mick he just made made my list of things to do today".
    but hey, ace song anyway
