Been calling for days
My searches are safe
As you woke up sick
For the second month today

Oh I don't know if they
Don't know if it's right
And you can't seem to tell me
If you're alright

Patience, oh patience, please
Take your time with me

When you thought
Yeah you thought we were high
No clue
That there ain't no way that this could work

What about your plans?
Will they all get fucked up?
There ain't no way in Hell
That this is gonna work

Patience, oh patience, please
Take your time with me

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
But who's to say you do it alone?

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
But who's to say you do it alone?

You said besides the decision
Well it was yours to make an angel
That's not fair, that's not fair
Let's be fair

So patience, oh patience, please
Take your time with me

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
But who's to say you do it alone?

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
But who's to say you do it alone?

Alone
Alone
(Both in your rule book and your room)

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here"

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"

For Christ's sakes we're just kids

"My body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
But who's to say you do it alone?

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
But who's to say you do it alone?

Alone

(Both in your rule book and your room)
But who's to say you do it alone?
(Both in your rule book and your room)

"It's my body, boy
Not your body, look here
For Christ's sakes we're just kids"
You didn't wanna do it alone
So who's to say you do it alone?

    General CommentBy far one of my favorite song by them. It's just so powerful in the lyrics and the beat.

    I think its about an abortion. She didnt want to tell him about the child or even what the child because they were too young.

    I don't think it's about pregnancy like I think it's about withdraw. We all know Adam has been on drugs and he has to have met some pretty messed up people I think this is about someone he was close to trying to come off a drug. To me the whole "It's my body boy not your body" thing is like I am going through all the sickness and pain not you so you shouldn't be trying to boss me around and tell me how to handle this we are just kids so you don't know..... And the womb is where something is created so if they are both in that person's womb they are being created.
    Read through the lyrics with withdraw in mind and you will see more similarities.

    My OpinionAm I the only person that thinks this song is about why his relationship with Chantelle DuPree ended? They were just about to get married and then the wedding was called off. It would make sense that she didn't want to have a child at the height of her success.
    "What about your plans?
    Well they'd all get fucked up?
    There ain't no way in Hell
    That this is gonna work"
    I can understand why she would feel that it wouldn't work - two busy, touring parents and she felt that she would get the raw end of the deal and he would go off and tour and she would do it all alone. Obviously he tried to convince her otherwise.

    I don't believe it is about his wife and child now as I feel that it is pretty obvious that the end result was an abortion. When you listen to the song, you can hear the pain in his voice. I doubt he would sound like that if there was a happy outcome. Also, I don't believe that he would have written a song about his now-wife considering having an abortion whilst pregnant with his now very alive son. How much would that screw up his son? It may also explain why he and his wife decided to have their son and how happy he seemed to be after this had happened not too long beforehand.

    I may be completely off the mark, but I don't think I am.

    The pro-life pop-punk anthem.
