"Run Dry (X Heart X Fingers)" as written by and Patrick Stump....
One more shot, then I'm quitting forever
Cross my heart, cross my fingers
Woke up this morning
The room was spinning
And I don't remember what I did last night
Beg the ceiling for forgiveness
And I don't want to remember what I did last night
When I was drunk I might have said some things I didn't mean
It's nothing wrong with you, it's something wrong with me

I'm running dry from now on
How come no one believes me?
Believe me

Step one: drink
Step two: make mistakes
Step three: pretend you don't remember
Step four: drink a little more
Step five: I need to run dry
I need to run dry

My liver's killing me
But willingly I'm going to tell whoever asks that I feel all right
I beg the ceiling for forgiveness
And I don't want to remember what I did last night
When I was drunk I might have said some things I didn't mean
It's nothing wrong with you, it's something wrong with me
Step one: drink
Step two: make mistakes
Step three: pretend you don't remember
Step four: drink a little more
Step five: I need to run dry
I need to run dry
I'm gonna take one more shot
Then I'm quitting forever
Cross my heart
Cross my fingers

I'm gonna take one more shot
Then I'm quitting forever
Cross my heart
Cross my fingers

I get drunk a little too much
For it to be healthy
No one wants to tell me
Whisky
I'm trying to cut back
Wine
I'm trying to cut back
They say everything in moderation
But I'll drink you under the table
I'm not just drunk
I really think I'm in love with you
(Okay, I really am just drunk)

Step one: drink
Step two: make mistakes
Step three: pretend you don't remember
Step four: drink a little more
Step five: I need to run dry
I need to run dry

I'm gonna take one more shot
Then I'm quitting forever
Cross my heart
Cross my fingers

I'm gonna take one more shot
Then I'm quitting forever
Cross my heart
Cross my fingers

    Lyric CorrectionOne more shot then I'm quitting forever
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers

    Woke up this morning, room is spinning
    I don't remember what I did last night
    Beg the ceiling for forgiveness
    'Cause I don't wanna remember what I did last night

    When I was drunk I might have said some things I didn't mean
    Yeah
    And there's nothing wrong with you
    It's something wrong with me

    I'm running dry
    And how oh how come no one believes me?
    Believe me

    Step one: drink
    Step two: make mistakes
    Step three: pretend you don't remember
    Step four: drink a little more
    Step five: I need to run dry
    I need to run dry

    My liver's killing me
    But willingly I'm gonna tell whoever asks that I feel alright
    Beg the ceiling for forgiveness
    'Cause I don't wanna remember what I did last night
    When I was drunk I might have said some things I didn't mean
    Yeah
    And there's nothing wrong with you
    It's something wrong with me
    Yeah

    Step one: drink
    Step two: make mistakes
    Step three: pretend you don't remember
    Step four: drink a little more
    Step five: I need to run dry
    I need to run dry

    I'm gonna take one more shot
    Then I'm quitting forever
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers

    I'm gonna take one more shot
    Then I'm quitting forever
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers

    I get drunk a little too much for it to be healthy
    No one wants to tell me
    Whiskey, I'm trying to cut-cut-cut back, back
    Wine, I'm trying to cut-cut-cut back, back

    They say everything in moderation
    But I drink you under the table
    I'm not just drunk
    I, I really think I'm in love with you, baby

    (Okay, I really am just drunk)

    Step one: drink
    Step two: make mistakes
    Step three: pretend you don't remember
    Step four: drink a little more
    Step five: I need to run dry
    I need to run dry

    I'm gonna take one more shot
    Then I'm quitting forever
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers

    I'm gonna take one more shot
    Then I'm quitting forever
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers
    Cross my heart, cross my fingers


    (Impress me, good luck)
    (Impress me, good luck)
    (Impress me, good luck)
    (Impress me, good luck)

    I'm not from Williamsburg or Silver Lake
    Does anybody have any other obvious complaints?
    Stop trying, 'cause I can almost hear you trying to hard, yeah

    Just saw a shadow of the freak you're in the night
    Something on human feet from the seat of the crime
    Those little flashes just wreak havoc on the mind

    I don't have to prove myself to you
    I don't have to prove myself to you
    You're standing with your arms crossed
    Nose turned up like you're saying "impress me"
    (Good luck)
    Impress me
    (Good luck)
    And I don't have to prove myself to you

    They got the search party looking for the ghost of the child
    But what if it grew up?
    He didn't die
    And he's all I want to get the evil(?) little feeling
    Like you're under dead eyes, yeah

    To those who all agree(?), you just might exist
    But come in in the morning if their misconceptions still persist
    Some days I may express myself in curious ways

    I don't have to prove myself to you
    And I don't have to prove myself to you
    You're standing with your arms crossed
    Nose turned up like you're saying "impress me"
    (Good luck)
    Impress me
    (Good luck)
    And I don't have to prove myself to you

    I don't have to prove myself to you
    I don't have to prove myself to you
    You're standing with your arms crossed
    Nose turned up like you're saying "impress me"
    (Good luck)
    Impress me
    (Good luck)
    I don't have to prove myself to you

    General Comment**** Cryptozoology, you just might exist

    I looked up the song on youtube and apparently the title of the second part is cryptozoology. :P

    Call me in the morning if that misconception still persists
    Some days I may express myself in curious ways

    My Opinionthis song is great

    My InterpretationI think that Run Dry is a about not blindly following something such as religion, or whatever a particular person's religion is. For example, when Patrick says "Beg the ceiling for forgiveness" it could be referring to the fact that you can pray to God as much as you want but it won't change anything you have dome previously. Also, it could mean that you are praying to nothing to the ceiling as there is no God (which would make sense as Patrick is an atheist.)
    Cryptozoology is all about not having to prove oneself to anybody, much like when in Explode he says "If i'm never your hero, i can never let you down"

    Song MeaningPatrick has talked about how right after the hiatus with Fall Out Boy, he had a really bad breakup and went on a month long drinking binge. He was really sad and was going through a lot of tough stuff. He eventually recovered, but this song is about how it felt when he had kind of given up on everything.
