"La Rivalita" as written by Seth James Johnson, Joseph Matthew Lussa, Ryan O'connor and Daniel James Stevens....
Am I the one you see in your so-called nightmares?
Wake up and dance, dance to the beat of the drama.
Since beggars can't be choosers, I'll play the victim while you play the fool.
This one goes out on, this one goes out on popular demand.

So hit me back, here's another track you can count on losing.
So take that, here's our plan of attack so count on bruising.

We are the ones you've named the, the unaccepted.
Wake up and dance, dance to the beat of the drama.
Since liars can be bruisers, you'll play the victim while we play the fool.
Tonight this goes out on the shelves because of popular demand.

[Repeat: x5]
So hit me back, here's another track you can count on losing.
So take that, here's our plan of attack so count on bruising.

    General CommentYeah, they talk about it in AP. They sound VERY much like Panic! At the Disco. But Dance, Dance is a Fallout Boy Song. Both those bands are on the same label, i think its one of them. Probs F.O.B.

    General Commentthis song (i feel) is directed towards Fall Out Boy (hense the whole "Dance, Dance" reference) I've been told that Pete Wentz heard about the idea of their song while writing "Under the Cork Tree..." and decided to use it as his own. Unfortuntaly for the Audition, FOB's album was coming out before theirs so they had to change the idea around bc their song/ song idea was stolen. So they used this opperunity to write one about how they felt about what happened and it's my favorite song on the record (go buy it, bitches!)

    General CommentI don't think the song is necessarily directed towards falloutboy. I think all that shit happened just recently. theaudition was pissed that falloutboy kind of "borrowed" their dance dance thing or whatever, and said something about it. And by the way, Falloutboy sucks and the audition sounds NOTHING like panic at the disco.

    General Commenthaha, the reason this song has "dance, dance" in it is because of Fall Out Boy's song. But yeah I was kinda shocked by the whole thing myself.
