Miss Jones taught me English
But I think I just shot her son
'Cause he owed me money
With a bullet in the chest you cannot run
Now he's bleeding in a vacant lot
The one in the summer where we used to smoke pot
I guess I didn't mean it
But man, you should've seen it
His flesh explode
Slow motion, see me let go
We tend to die young
Slow motion, see me let go
What a brother knows
Slow motion, see me let go
Now the cops will get me
But girl, if you would let me
I'll take your pants off
I got a little bit of blow we could both get off
Later bathing in the afterglow
Two lines of coke I cut with Draino
And her nose starts to bleed
A most beautiful ruby red
Slow motion, see me let go
We'll remember these days
Slow motion, see me let go
Urban life decays
Slow motion, see me let go
And at home
My sister's eating paint chips again
Maybe that's why she's insane
I shut the door to her moaning
And I shoot smack in my veins
Wouldn't you
See my neighbor's beating his wife
Because he hates his life
There's an arc to his fist as he swings
Oh man, what a beautiful thing
And death slides close to me
Won't grow old to be
A junkie wino creep
Hollywood glamorized my wrath
I'm a young urban psychopath
I incite murder for your entertainment
'Cause I needed the money
What's your excuse
The joke's on you
Slow motion, see me let go
Oh yeah
Slow motion, see me let go
Slow motion, see me let go
oh yeah

    General Commentthis song is incredible...brendon does it so well. i love the "death slides close to me line" and the part about her nose running ruby red...just like in fall out boy's "the (after) life of the party", dont you think?

    General Commenti saw this on youtube...and a lot of people were saying "they suck." blah blah blah and i found it odd how i was one of a few people who actually like how brendon did on this cover.
    i love brendon's voice throughout the whole song.

    General CommentTo be completely honest I like this cover more than 3EB's original. Brendon's voice is haunting, for lack of a better word. It's beautiful.
    A great amount of props to 3EB for this song though. If they never wrote it Panic! could never have covered it.

    General Commenti agree with killmyending, i think they did a better job at it, coz i find the singer's voice in the 3EB one really annoying

    amazing cover, i cry at this song, brendon is so talented

    General Comment:]
    This cover is amazing.
    Honestly, it's brilliant.
    I can't get over his voice from 'My sisters --- to --- beautiful thing'.
    It pretty much kills me every time.


    And as to the negative-ism (?) on youtube, hah, I was defending them like no other.
