Been gone more days this year
Than I have been home
Trading friends
For trips to the coast
This hotel room feels
More-oh like a tomb

Been gone more days this year
Than I have been home
Trading friends
For trips to the coast
This hotel room feels
More-oh like a tomb

It's not gossip
If it's the truth
I'm sick of always writing songs
For you to slit your wrists to

So which is it?
"The boy who writes the songs
or "The boy who's in them?'
Who's the girl?
Is this truth or is he writing fiction?

Hand over my heart, gun to my head
I swear to God I'm through with this
I am the worst liar I know

It's not gossip
If it's the truth
I'm sick of always writing songs
For you to slit your wrists to

So which is it?
"The boy who writes the songs
or "The boy who's in them?'
Who's the girl?
Is this truth or is he writing fiction?

So which is it?
"The boy who writes the songs
or "The boy who's in them?'
Who's the girl?
Is this truth or is he writing fiction?

(So which is it?)
So which is it? Which is it?

Who's the girl?
Is this truth or is he writing fiction?
Which is it?
"The boy who writes the songs
or "The boy who's in them?'
Who's the girl?
Is this truth or is he writing fiction??

Been gone more days this year than I have been home

    General CommentThis song seems to be the "little brother" to Brand New's song "I Will Play My Game..." the topic seems to be about the same, but FOB just lacked the lyrical style of BN.

    This song is damn catchy though.

    General CommentI haven't heard too many of the songs from the new CD, but reading the lyrics, I'm a little disappointed. It seems that there are so many allusions to other songs by other bands, most likely unintentional. It just seems like FOB lost its lyrical touch that made their last 2 releases so good.

    General Commentmaybe it's because you guys don't understand the song. the lyrics aren't terrible. i'd like to see you guys write this well.

    this song is about a guy whos in a band, and he's getting tired of it. being the guy who writes the songs that mean so damn much to kids, and the questions he's asked about them.

    General CommentPete always manages to get a great line or two in each song.

    Hand over my heart, gun to my head.

    It's not gossip if it's the truth.

    General CommentThe other day I saw Fall Out Boy's members giving handjobs to the members of New Found Glory. Wow, that is gay. The singer for New Found Glory penetrated the bunghole of Fall Out Boy's drummer. Disgusting.
