"Saturday" as written by and Stephen Fretwell....
I'm good to go and I'm going nowhere fast
It could be worse, I could be taking you there with me
I'm good to go, but it looks like I'm still on my own

I'm good to go for something golden
Though the motions I've been going through have failed
I'm coasting on potential towards a wall at a hundred miles an hour

When I say

Two more weeks, my foot is in the door
I can't sleep in the wake of Saturday
Saturday, when these open doors were open ended

Pete and I attacked the Lost Astoria
With promise and precision and mess of youthful innocence
I read about the afterlife, but I never really lived more than an hour

When I say

Two more weeks, my foot is in the door
I can't sleep in the wake of Saturday
Saturday, when these open doors were open ended

Saturday, when these open doors were open ended

I read about the afterlife, but I never really lived
I read about the afterlife, but I never really lived

Two more weeks, my foot is in the door
Me and Pete in the wake of Saturday
Saturday, when these open doors were open ended
Saturday, when these open doors were open ended

Saturday
Saturday

    General Commentthis song's basically about being lazy and living in the past when you could get away with it

    General Commenti think this song is about regret....and how he always saw people wasting their lives, but never really thought that'd happen to him. how people shouldn't take anything for granted

    General Comment"And I read about the afterlife
    But I never really lived"

    Pretty much sums up the song, it's about regretting the times, the 'Saturdays' that you missed, and how quickly they went by...

    General CommentI heard on the behind the scenes on song with pete and patrick and they said it was about the stress that was going on with them about college. And that card was like a certificate on collge and everytime they would look at it the stress would burst. My mom didn't understand what the song meant but I did. Sort of.

    General CommentYeah i agree.
    Its deffinately about them being in high school, i think they felt like everyone else knew what they wanted to.. and it was realistic. But they were chasing the dream of being in a band, and nobody believed in them. So they started wasting their potential.

    I think they also sing about not fitting in. They didnt live because they never enjoyed their time, because people probably didnt accept them.. and they never went out on "saturday" night etc.. cos they were so unpopular.

    And Patrick wrote this.
    Its why its one of my favourites.
    And the video, is good too.

    General CommentI would just like to revisit and rekindle the importance of this song.

    Saturday defines everything fall out boy is and isn't. Saturday speaks to why fall out boy is still the same fall out boy they were 6 or 7 years ago. It really is just a group of a couple suburban hardcore dudes with some boredom. Life is a journey and not a destination and they are enjoying the journey and not letting anyone impede that. They are doing what they want to do and at the same time remembering and never forgetting where they came from and all the shittalking, resistance, and non believers they came across along the way. Saturday is about how a band can save your life.

    I still believe and always will.
