Bury me standing under your window with the cinder block in hand
Yeah cause no one will ever feel like this again
And if I could move I'm sure it would only be to crawl back to you
I must have dragged my guts a block...they were gone by the time we (talked)

I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself
But you know that I could crush you with my voice

Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me
Hide the details I don't want to know a thing

I hate the way you say my name like it's something secret
My pen is the barrel of the gun. Remind me which side you should be on.

I wish that I was as invisible as you make me feel.

    General Comment:Bury me standing under your window with the cinder block in hand - he wanted to hurt her but couldnt as he loves her
    Yeah cause no one will ever feel like this again - sme as above
    And if I could move I'm sure it would only be to crawl back to you - stating he would go back to her no matter what
    I must have dragged my guts a block... they were gone by the time we (talked)...- his feelings were on the surface, but when he seen her he had no guts to tell her how he feels ?

    I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself - hes disapointed in himself
    But you know that I could crush you with my voice - the songs will get her back/ he could tell people what shes done

    Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me - looked into her window as shes cheating ?
    Hide the details I don't want to know a thing - shes admitted it to him

    I hate the way you say my name like it's something secret - ashamed of him
    My pen is the barrel of the gun. Remind me which side you should be on - she should be with him and not being wrote about like the rest of girlies

    I wish that I was as invisible as you make me feel. - she doesnt relise hes even their, like most of us have felt :)

    General Comment:i wouldn't say that fall out boy's lyrics are simple at all. i think they come up with some of the best metaphors that i've ever heard.

    General Comment:"I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself"
    That line is the best in the song...I don't know, it just seems like it describes most of my really pitiful relationships.
    Wow...that sounded really emo...

    General Comment:this is one of my favorite fob songs...especially the line "I hate the way you say my name like it's something secret "...totally relatable, when youre with someone and they act like theyre ashamed of it...it sucks

    General Comment:I was falling for this guy and then he went to Cali on spring break and never came back.........he came back last week looking for me but we didn't get to talk.............the line "if I could move I'm sure it would only be to crawl back to you" says just what I feel, if I could, I'd run back to him even though he fucked up bad......and it sucks 'cause I wish I could hate him but I can't.
