"Hangman" as written by and Joshua Allen Cain Justin Pierre Courtney....
Fed up with "I made you look"
And Dirty Crooks without a clue
You're here to save face
And I say hangman, I'm on to you

Hangman, it's not your fault
Commit this to memory
The bright ideas are wasted and lost along the way

Last call for medicine
To count me in and turn me loose
I never meant to hurt anything
But I never cared too

[Chorus]

COMMIT THIS TO MEMORY
(commit this to memory)
COMMIT THIS TO MEMORY
(commit this to memory)
COMMIT THIS TO MEMORY
(commit this to memory)
COMMIT THIS TO MEMORY

I'm just a guy that never tried
I'm just a stupid fuck with brilliant luck
And sometimes a bright idea
So shower me in a chorus of compliments
And verse I don't deserve
I might run but I'll never hide

Hey, that's not right
You can't complain
"everything's gonna be just fine"
Said the bird to the powerline
If memory serves, they're my flowers
This game's called "catch me if you can"
As if we haven't already been through enough

Fed up with "made you look"
And dirty crooks without a clue
You're here to save face
And I say Hangman I'm on to you

    General CommentI think you are all crazy. Mark Hoppus' part in this song is amazing the best part of the whole damn album. I love this song so much and I hate to see the lyrics all out of wack so,


    HERE ARE THE CORRECT ONES:

    [fed up with "made you look". and dirty crooks without a clue. they all wear the same face and it says "hangman, i'm onto you"

    hangman, it's not your fault. commit this to memory. the bright ideas always get lost along the way

    last call for medicine. so count me in and turn me loose. i never meant to hide anything but i'll never tell the truth

    commit this to memory

    i'm just a guy that never tried. i'm just a stupid fuck with brillant luck. and sometimes a bright idea. so shower me in a chorus of compliments. and verse i don't deserve. i might run, but i'll never hide.
    "hey, thats not right you can't complain everything's gonna be just fine". said the pen to the dotted line. if memory serves then mark my words. this game's called "catch me if you can" and with wine we salute all our bitterness]



    Fuck your bird to the power line. Don't put the lyrics up if you just listened to the song and wrote what you think you heard. Jesus fucking Christ. These are straight from the jacket.

    General CommentI love Mark Hoppus part. The lyrics he sings are amazing.

    "I'm just a guy that never tried
    I'm just a stupid fuck with brilliant luck
    and sometimes a bright idea
    So shower me in a chorus of compliments
    and verse I don't deserve
    I might run but I'll never hide"

    great part.
