"Thnks fr th Mmrs" as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman and Andrew Hurley....
I'm gonna make it bend and break
(It sent you to me without wings)
Say a prayer but let the good times roll
In case God doesn't show
(Let the good times roll, let the good times roll)

And I want these words to make things right
But it's the wrongs that make the words come to life
"Who does he think he is?"
If that's the worst you got
better put your fingers back to the key

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great
He tastes like you, only sweeter
One night, yeah, and one more time
Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
See, he tastes like you, only sweeter, oh

Been looking forward to the future
But my eyesight is going bad
In these crystal balls
It's always cloudy except for (except for)
When you look into the past (look into the past)
One night stand (One night stand oh)


(They say) I only think in the form of crunching numbers
In hotel rooms, collecting page six lovers
Get me out of my mind and get you out of those clothes
I'm a liner away from getting you into the mood


One night and one more time (One more night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
"He tastes like you only sweeter" (Oh)
One night, yeah, and one more time (One more night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories (Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories)
"See, he tastes like you only sweeter" (Oh)

    My InterpretationI've always been fairly certain this is about being Christian and struggling with your sexuality, and the first 4 lines seal it for me.

    "I'm gonna make it bend and break
    (They sent you to me without wings)"

    He's gonna bend and break the rules of modern day male/female relationships. I think the second line refers to the man he's gonna have this 'one night stand' with, because he certainty wasn't pointed towards this man by God.

    "Say a prayer, but let the good times roll
    In case God doesn't show"

    Homosexuality is supposed to be forbidden, taboo, anti-Christian etc etc. The narrator is apologizing for his 'sins', but he's gonna continue to engage in them anyway cause God might not be the fag hating being he's portrayed to be, or he might not even be real at all.

    And of course, the 'he tastes like you only sweeter' line.

    General CommentIt's "he tastes like you, only sweeter". It's a line from the movie Closer.

    My favorite song on the album. I can't help but sing along every time I hear it.

    I am in love.

    General Commentas I think everyone knows the song is loosely based on the film 'Closer', Pete admitted that he found the film painfully true. People have said there are connections to Chris, but I don't really know the full details of that, and surely he'd be over all that by now?

    General CommentPossible gay undertones here? I realize it's a quote from a movie but wouldn't the line "he tastes like you only sweeter" be inappropriate for a male best friend unless they were secret lovers?

    General CommentThis song is clearly about the end of Pete Wentz's friendship with childhood friend Christopher Gutierrez. It's sort of a long story, but most of the legit. fans know what I'm talking about.
    The whole "put your fingers back to the keys" thing definitely references Chris's tirade against Pete in his livejournal. And the lines about one-night-stands support the theory that Pete was messing around with Chris's girlfriend, Kate.

    General CommentWhen I'm dead and gone, I want to be buried with the words 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs' on my coffin/gravestone and to be laying arms crossed with 'Take This To Your Grave' in my hands. Is that weird, or does that mean I'm a really devoted fan?

    General Commentand *better put your fingers back to the keys*

    But anyway, this song seriously screams HeyChris vs. Pete.

    Who does he think he is?
    Is that the worst you’ve got?

    Totally Pete calling him out.
    Aaah, I wonder if there's any hidden meanings about Morrisey posters and taking pictures of yourself. =]

    General CommentIt's still spoken as 'Thanks For The Memories' but the correct title is 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs', the other title minus any vowels. As so aptly pointed out above as text message language.
