    General Comment:Well you guys, Panic At The Disco LOVE Chuck Palahniuk, if you have not read any of his books, you should go out and buy some. So what this song is, Its a tribute to Chucks Books, His stories always give you the end first and then he does a flash back to what happened. So in this song you can hear what some of the songs are going to sound like before the CD even starts. And you can also hear a guy saying something in Polish, that's maybe cuz Chuck is Ukrainine and speaks Polish, might be a Msg to him. So ya just some info.

    General Comment:it is polish. there is a meaning to that. read the bio of panic! if you can get something out of that.
    as i have explained in other panic! songs, panic! believed their popularity to be "passing", as the man says. they mock themselves, really. it's quite obvious in "london beckoned.."
    panic! still jokes about their popularity, and still believe it to be some kind of prank. if you keep this in mind, a lot of the lyrics in the CD can be connected to it.
