"Homesick at Space Camp" as written by and Wentz/stump/trohman/hurley....
Landing on a runway in Chicago and I'm grounding all my dreams of ever really seeing California, because I know what's in between is something sensual in such non-conventional ways.

Tonight the headphones will deliver you the words that I can't say.
Tonight I'm writing you a million miles away.
Tonight is all about "We miss you."

And I can't forget your style or your cynicism,
Somehow it was like you were the first to listen to everything we said.
My smile's an open wound without you...and my hands are tied to pages inked to bring you back.

These friends are, new friends are golden.

    General Commenti think this song is about taking in the old with the new, keeping old ties that are important and also cherishing new friends that come along at different times and places in your life

    General Commentthis also is good to listen to you making the transition coming home for the summer from college, trying to maintain those friendships you just made up at school while hanging out with all your old friends

    yea i agree.. this song is really good. i think it means the same thing, going away, or being away from a loved one or a friend that lives far away. i love fob, not many people no about them.

    General Commentyea i agree with most of what you guys said, it seems to be about being away from important friends/families and missing them.

    "and my hands are tied to pages inked to bring you back" imply that they're keeping their loved ones in mind wherever they are by writing them... aww :)

    "tonight the headphones will deliver you the words that i can't say" could mean their songs speak for them when the people the guys are close to listen to it, and they can't be there themselves to say it...

    wow FOB just rock!
