"It's Hard to Say "I Do", When I Don't" as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman and Andrew Hurley....
I speak fast and I'm not gonna repeat myself
So listen carefully to every word I say:
"I'm the only one who's gonna get away with making excuses today,

You're appealing to emotions that I simply do not have"
Blackmailed myself
Cause I ain't got anyone else
"This is a stick up
Give us all your.."
I've got the red carpet blues baby

"Put your hands in the air and don't make a sound
But don't get the wrong idea
We're gonna shoot you
We're gonna shoot you
And there's nothing in your head or pocket, throat or wallet
That could change just how this goes
No
We're gonna shoot you
We're gonna shoot you"

When I said that I'd return to you I meant more like a relapse
Now again I think "His and her's" "For better or worse"
But the only ring I want buried with me are the ones around my eyes

"You're appealing to emotions that I simply do not have"
I've got the red carpet blues baby

"Put your hands in the air and don't make a sound
But don't get the wrong idea
We're gonna shoot you
We're gonna shoot you
And there's nothing in your head or pocket, throat or wallet
That could change just how this goes"
And everyone shakes to the beat with a barrel down their throat

    i just feel like he's not giving you options. you have to feel what he's feeling and theres no way out of it.

    General Commentcongrats to Colin from the okc for naming this one
    the titles perfect
    as for the meaning...
    I think Pete’s been contemplating settling down with someone
    not sure what all the shooting people bits are about though

    General Commenti don't think he's settling down judging from the lyrics. "It's hard to say I do when I don't." is sort of implying that he does want to "settle down" because he doesn't love them.

    General Commentyeah sorry i should have said that someone else is thinking of settling down with pete

    and shrodes I cant give you linkage cause the song hasn’t even been recorded yet
    the only reason why the lyrics are here is because someone took them of the ock site and posted them here, something that we were expressively asked not to do
