"My Heart Is the Worst Kind of Weapon" as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman and Andrew Hurley....
Spent most of last night
Dragging this lake
For the corpses of all my past mistakes
Sell me out the jokes on you
We are salt and you are the wound

Empty another bottle
And let me tear you to pieces
This is me wishing you into the worst situations
I'm the kind of kid that can't let anything go
But you wouldn't know a good thing
If it came up and slit your throat

Whoa
Whoa
Oh
Whoa
Whoa

Your remorse hasn't fallen on deaf ears
Rather ones that just don't care
Cause I know that your in between arms somewhere
Next to heartbeats
Where you shouldn't dare sleep
Now, I'll teach you a lesson
For Keeping secrets from me

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

And did you hear the news?
I could dissect you
And gut you on this stage,
Not as eloquent as I may have imagined
But it will get the job done
And you're, done

Every line is plotted and designed
To leave you
Standing on your bedroom window's ledge
And everyone else
That it hits, that it gets to
Is nothing more than collateral damage

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

    General CommentAnyone else hear the new version of this yet?

    It's pretty sick.

    I love how fob keep it real. Like they have all this success but still don't forget their roots. Like the drummer was on mtv the other day with a 7 angels 7 plagues hoodie. And there's definitely a breakdown at the end of the electric version of this song, just tacked on.

    And pete mentioned his dogs circle pitting to hatebreed on the q and a of their site one time. it's just so cool how they are hardcore kids making pop punk for the masses, but still staying down with the scene. Even if I could take or leave their fuct era material, I still really dig their older stuff.

    Eh, I'm just rambling now..

    General Comment"sell me out, the jokes on you
    he is salt and you are the wound" - feeling betrayed, the girls flirting and it hurts so much and with that guys it hurts more (imagine adding salt to your wound?)

    "empty another bottle
    and let me tear you to pieces
    this is me wishing you into the worst situations" - liquors for the broken-heart cursing the girl hoping she'll feel the way you feel

    "your remorse hasn't fallen on deaf ears
    rather ones that just don't care
    cause i know
    that you're in between arms somewhere
    next to heartbeats where you shouldn't be asleep
    now i'll teach you a lesson for keeping secrets from me" - don't try to tell me too forgive you that easily you've been cheating me!

    "and did you hear the news
    i could dissect you and gut you on this stage
    not as elequent as i may have imagined
    but it will get the job done
    you're done

    every line is plotted and designed
    to leave you standing on your bedroom windows ledge
    and everyone else that it hits
    that it gets to
    is nothing more than collateral damage" - hey listen up! made this song to reach you... I can spill out all your dirty works here bust we may be ruining our career as the FOB for being to personal and same for you...you'll be messed up... listen to the lyrics... every single was made artistically to sting you..and oh...just consider this a payback for the pain you cause me (nothing more than collateral damage)

    General Commenta beautifully angry acoustic song. i think the best part about what FOB does is that their lyrics can be so resentful and bitter, yet their music is so upbeat. rock on.

    General CommentObviously, if you are dating the lead singer from FOB you don't want to cheat on him. The emotion that FOB puts into their songs is definitely what makes them different from all those other punk bands.

    General Commenti love fall out out boy to death but it does seem like a lot of their lyrics are "magically" similar to lyrics of other bands....this ep is dynamite

    General Commentgod...i'd have to agree with everyone here. i doubt you can like Fall Out Boy (commonly referred to as FOB haha) unless you've had your heart ripped from your chest.

    on my super sad nights, i rake my lake of mistakes, and it only makes the tears more bitter. we were happy...we were on top of the f***in world. but then this ass decided that he'd take her away. from the very first time i saw him...like back in 6th grade or so...there was a worry i felt towards him. but for like 4 years, nothing ever happened...so i threw out my worries. but now, that tell-tale fear came back and drove her words into my heart: "i like someone else now..." my heart was ripped right out, and torn apart to the puppetry of her words. damn...i couldn't go on. it killed me...and it might not have been so bad if it wasn't him. i still hope that something goes wrong and she realizes that he's not the right choice. maybe that'd bring her back to me. maybe not. i sound terrible hoping something wrong happens to the girl i love, but FOB's doing it haha. i'm the kind of kid that can't let anything go...and it sucks. "...maybe you should try saying no once in a while..." : beautiful.

    i'm through with it though. if there was ever a second chance, of course i'd go for it again. i'm just a hopeless romantic with a shrivled heart. i look at life like for every bad thing that happens, something good comes from it. so, the way i'm going, my life is gonna be phenominal. yeah, i'd say i'm pretty emo...
