"It's Time To Dance" as written by Brendon Boyd Urie, George Ryan Ross and Spencer James Smith....
Well, she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor
Just for the attention
'Cause that's just ridiculously odd
Well, she sure is going to get it
Here's the setting
Fashion magazines line the walls now
The walls line the bullet holes

Have some composure
And where is your posture?
Oh, no, no
You're pulling the trigger
Pulling the trigger
All wrong

Have some composure
And where is your posture?
Oh, no, no
You're pulling the trigger
Pulling the trigger
All wrong

Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention
Give me envy, give me malice, baby, give me a break!
When I say shotgun, you say wedding
Shotgun, wedding, shotgun, wedding

She didn't choose this role
But she'll play it and make it sincere
So you cry, you cry
(Give me a break)
But they believe it from the tears
And the teeth right down to the blood at her feet
Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and wearing aubergine dreams
(Give me a break)

Have some composure
And where is your posture?
Oh, no, no
You're pulling the trigger
Pulling the trigger
All wrong

Have some composure
And where is your posture?
Oh, no, no
You're pulling the trigger
Pulling the trigger
All wrong

Come on this is screaming photo op, op
Come on
Come on
This is screaming
This is screaming
This is screaming photo op.

Boys will be boys, baby
Boys will be boys
Boys will be boys, baby
Boys will be boys

Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention
Give me envy, give me malice, baby, give me a break
When I say shotgun, you say wedding
Shotgun, wedding, shotgun, wedding

Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and boys will be boys
Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and wearing aubergine dreams

    General Commentwhat only one comment?
    I love this song.

    I think its based on Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk.
    Especially with the "When I say shotgun, you say wedding"
    and "Hiding in estrogen and boys will be boys"

    General CommentYea, this song is absolutely based on "invisible Monsters"
    "Give me envy , give me malice, give me attention" is in the book as
    Flash, give me envy, Flash give me Malice , and so on..,

    The first like "she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor, just for the attention"
    Is obv about brandy but the irony in that line is that she/he does almost everything for attention. And even when brandy go shot she was being super dramatic.

    General Commentisnt this suposed to be like the typical famous people who when they have a problem they sell interviews and talk about many diferent stupid things to the press to not die,
    but also can be when you have a relatiomship and you want to force the other to do whatever you want.

    General Commenti personally think its about preps trying to be emo/goth or anything that they're not and not fitting into the misfit crowd possibly not knowing who you are such as sexuality like "Boys will be boys hiding in estrogen"

    General CommentI'm so glad I'm not the only one who got the Invisible Monsters references. I liked this song before I read the book, and didn't even think about this song when I later read the book, but after listening to the song after reading the book it's like a whole new song. Love it.

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone who is obsessed with perfection because they have always been pushed in order to achieve perfection, but they are beginning to become their own person and not what others expect of them and thus crack under the pressure.
    The chorus "Have some composure!
    Where is your posture?
    Oh no, no!
    You're pulling the trigger,
    Pulling the trigger all wrong"
    I think shows that pretty well :)
