"Tiffany Blews" as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman and Andrew Hurley....
I'm not a cry baby
I'm the cry baby
A caterpillar that got stuck
Mr. Moth come quick with any luck
A long walk to a dark house
A Roman candle heart keep us far apart
I've got your body doing alright
Hate me baby, maybe I'm a piece of art

Oh, my friends all lie and say
They only want the best wishes for me
Oh, three, two, one
We go live

[Chorus]
Oh, baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
You're a faded moon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
Whoa, whoa
And oh, baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
But you'll be faded soon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
Whoa, whoa

I can make your heart slow
I can feel the weather in my bones
Wish hard enough, I can turn it to what I like
Your pupils they're big
They're rolling like dice
They say they only want the best wishes for me
(They only want the best for me)
Oh, three, two, one
We go live

[Chorus]

Not the boy I was
The boy I am is just venting, venting
Dear gravity, you held me down in this starless city
Dear gravity, you held me down in this starless city

Not the boy I was
The boy I am is just venting, venting
Dear gravity, you held me down in this starless city
Dear gravity, you held me down in this starless city

They say they only want the best wishes for me
(They only want the best for me)
Oh, three, two, one
We go live

[Chorus]

Whoa, whoa

    General Commenti agree with staytragic, this has to be the next single.

    "Ohh baby you're a classic
    like a little black dress
    you're a faded moon
    stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)"

    I feel like the chorus is referring to ashlee. lol i think its because i remember reading someone referring to pete as a "hot tranny mess" in the tabloids. so its like ashlee is married/stuck to pete and he doesnt really know why cuz all he is is just a 'little hot mess'

    "I'm not a crybaby
    I'm the crybaby"
    Everyone knows fall out boy is classified as emo, even pete admitted it. so he's saying they're not just an emo band, they are THE emo band.


    "A caterpillar that got stuck
    Mr. moth come quick with any luck
    A long walk to a dark house
    A Roman candle heart keep us far apart"
    no.fucking.clue. Might have to do with one of the fairy tales or books pete has read or movies he's watched or something. he sometimes does that.

    "I got your body doing alright
    hate me baby maybe i'm a piece of art"
    I'm thinking this line is referring to how pete is so hard to read and understand [like some pieces of art], and a lot of ppl hate him for that. i mean usually when ppl look at art, everyone feels and thinks their own emotions and thoughts, but what ppl rly want to know is what the artist was feeling and thinking when creating it.
    or else it can be how ppl hate pete based solely on the way he looks or what the press writes about him.

    "I can make your heart slow
    I can feel the weather in my bones
    We're starting off and can turn it to what I like
    your pupils big roll like dice"
    just going on again on how he knows the lyrics and songs affect and addict us

    lovee this song :D

    General CommentWayne's small part is awesome. Gives it a darker feel. Anyway, chorus is great. One of my favorite songs on the album.

    General CommentWell y theory on the title is that it does indeed allude to Breakfast At Tiffanys.

    If you read the title outloud it reads 'Tiffany Blues', maybe Peter didnt want to make it so effin obvious so he used 'blews' instead.

    In the movie, Audrey Hepburn's character Holly loves to go to Tiffany's because she loves the way she feels there, she feels at home.

    Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
    Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
    Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
    Paul Varjak: Sure.
    Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!


    Maybe that has something to do with the meaning of the song.

    General CommentThis song is just so pretty. When I go to the gig in March I hope I'm not all by myself. It would blow my mind to actually be with a girl when they play this record. Does anybody else feel the same?

    This record is probably my third favourite on the album. :]

    General CommentI always thought it was "I'm not a prop baby, I'm the prop baby". Especially because later it talks about them going live on a show.
