"We Built Another World" as written by and Arlen Thompson Dan Boeckner....
At the party we got chained at the wrists
Outside there's girls saying
It's not gonna be just only a kiss
Everyone's disguised just a little bit

I had a bad bad time tonight
I had a bad bad time tonight
Bad things happen in the night
Where we built another world
Styles surround you
Here comes the night time
Where we built another world
Evening time

I made a loud sound and shake some teeth
Saw the lights pale across the street
It's not gonna be just only a kiss
Everyone's disguised just a little bit

I had a bad bad time tonight
I had a bad bad time tonight
Bad things happen in the night

Where we built another world
Styles surround you here comes the night time
Where we built another world
Evening time

Where we built another world
Hang ghosts from the trees and that's what I saw
Where we built another world
Hang ghosts from the trees and that's what I saw
Where we built another world
Where we built another world
Where we built another world
Here comes the night time

    General Commentthis is turning into one of my favorite songs on the cd, the way the drums break every so often, and how the backup vocals are used when the lead vocals are saying how we built another world. just real layered when you really listen to it

    General CommentI dont know why but I dont really like this song. I dont like the way he sings the chorus

    "I had a bad bad time tonight
    Bad things happen in the night"

    General CommentI like the lyric "everyones disguised just a little bit" because its so true everyone you meet in life puts up a facade whether or not its to be accepted or what, I dont know.

    General CommentTo me, this sounds like he had sex with an underage girl. "At the party we got chained at the wrists"= getting arrested
    "Everyone's disguised just a little bit"= she looked older than she was, and he looked younger, and they didn't know
    "Outside there's girls saying
    It's not gonna be just only a kiss"= the girl's friends knew it was going to happen, or it happened before.
    The whole "I had a bad bad time tonight" thing works with my theory.
    "We built another world"= When it happened neither of them where really thinking about it, they were in their own world

    General CommentThey at this party and this girl is with her friends, she is a virgin and hooks up with this guy she's been eyeing for a long time. He just wants to hit it but she wants more. She gets pregnant they are "chained at the wrists" and they built another world as the negative nuclear family. (:
    Just kidding.

    General CommentYou know how you might go to school or work during the day, but your nightlife is completely different from anything you do during the day? and the clubs and bars we go to at night, they're all absically the same. Thats what i think hes trying to get at in this song."where we built another world.../ the evening time." The stereotypical trashy white girls "It's not gonna be just only a kiss" and throngs of pale, nightl-ife people "Hang ghosts from the trees and that's what I saw" overencumber everything allowing no room for any unique identities "At the party we got chained at the wrists.../ I had a bad bad time tonight."

    General CommentWell, if you're going to read it literally, it could just be Halloween, couldn't it?
    Pale lights from pumpkins, garbage bag ghosts hanging from trees, the demonistic emotions that are tied up in there.
    The "not only a kiss" could be seen as a pact with the devil.

    I don't agree with the above, but I don't think (when one takes the rest of the album into consideration) that the song has a meaning as base as the ones proposed in previous posts (or in my own).
