"Pretty in Punk" as written by Patrick Martin Stump, Peter Lewis Wentz and Joseph Mark Trohman....
Walking off that stage tonight
I know what you're thinking
"He stands alone because he's high on himself"
But if you only knew..

I was terrified and would you mind if I
sat next to you and watched you smile
So many kids but I only see you
And I don't think you notice me
Well I've seen your boyfriend
and I don't think he treats you right
But that's none of my business is it?

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

The only girl who ever gave me the time
was the one who only wanted five minutes of mine
Knocking boots in the back,
How degrading is that?
I decline

I'm too terrified and would you mind if I
sat next to you and watched you smile
So many kids but I only see you
And I don't think you notice me
Well I've seen your boyfriend
and I don't think he treats you right
But that's none of my business is it?

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no, no

    General Commentthis song is just so great, i love the end, kind of TBS-esque, but still very fall out boy, and u all r very right, patrick does have an amazing voice, i dont like bands who play crappy music w/ crappy lyrics but everyone thinks they're great just cuz they scream, but fall out boy is a very talented band
