"Poppin' Champagne" as written by Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Alexander William Gaskarth and Zachary Steven Merrick....
You've got me poppin' champagne, I'm at it again
Caught up in the moment but not in the right way
I'm falling in between, tearing up at the seams
We're just aiming to please and aesthetics don't hurt one bit

So follow me down, take this all the way
Any way you want to

Why don't you say so? I think I'm caught in between
The nights and days fly by when I'm lost on the streets
And my eyes, they despise you for who I am
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?

You've got me thinking that lately I've been wishing
The television set would show me more
Than just a picture of the things I've grown to detest
I strip down my dignity they can take all of me
But they won't ever take what I still believe

So follow me down, take this all the way
Any way you want to

Why don't you say so? I think I'm caught in between
The nights and days fly by when I'm lost on the streets
And my eyes, they despise you for who I am
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?

Give up and let go, I'm just a boy with a dream
And you can take one look as I fall in between
With my eyes just as wide as my mouth can be
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?

I know, I know, I know
That there's a place for me somewhere out there
I know, I know, I know
That there's a place for me somewhere out there

Why don't you say so? I think I'm caught in between
The nights and days fly by when I'm lost on the streets
My eyes, they despise you for who I am
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?

Give up and let go, I'm just a boy with a dream
And you can take one look as I fall in between
With my eyes just as wide as my mouth can be
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?

Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?
Why don't you say so? Why don't you say so?

    My Opinioni think its pretty ironic that this is their new single. they are saying they dont want too sell out, but the video was sell out, their talking about switching label, etc...i think that's why they chose this song as a single. they want people to know that they are trying to sell out. but, i think they are...
    sorry this has nothing to do with the song, but poppin? come on! they can say champagne but rappers can be sexist and have soft core porn in their videos [i agree exactly with cloudy eye]

    My InterpretationI love this song, one of my favorites by them.
    I was listening to it over and over, and I started to think it was about Holden from "The Catcher in the Rye," because there are quite a few similarities:
    He's lost in New York City on the streets most of the time, he judges people because he isn't happy with himself, & he's falling between childhood and the adult world.
    He's hoping that there's somewhere that he belongs in the world. And often, when he's upset or really depressed- perhaps feeling suicidal as he does plenty of times through out the novel-, he gets caught in the moment and drinks a lot, hence "poppin' champagne," in which he's doing it for all the wrong reasons.
    "So follow me down," is like Holden's fall, as Mr. Antolini describes it as a spiraling downward. And he's losing himself in the world, but one thing it won't take is his beliefs.
    I don't know, just my interpretation. I'm guessing ATL didn't mean to relate it so much to Catcher, or if they've even read the book, lol.(:
    But it's a great song, nonetheless.

    General CommentI think its his fears of making it big and not knowing what to do. Like the pressure of everything and stuff. I think it a great way to end the album.

    General Commenti agree with what chokeondrama said, that it's about it the pressure to be a certain way and how he's "falling in between" in Hollywood. Like he's scared to get left behind.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure that it is about being afraid of becoming huge.

    and becoming like the people he detests ["the television set would show me more than just a picture of the things I've grown to detest"].

    and it would be really obvious for him [for THEM] to feel that way. because honestly, they are going to be huge. and for some kids from maryland who drink a little too much, it must seem just a little weird, eh?

    he metions in a video [his youtube account is alexATL, i think] that he doesn't want people to think they are selling out. and that they love all their fans, and they want discriminate no matter what song/album you like. and that could be what the song is about? not knowing what to say because they don't want to disapoint anyone, but they don't want to sell-out either.

    =] the whole band is pretty nice. you should go see 'em live, and meet them. =]
