"I Wanna Be a Warhol" as written by and Derek Grant Matt Skiba....
I wanna be a little piece of history
Let's go, I wanna be a painting for all to see
Let's go, take a trip, take a big hand full of these
And swallow, just a headache a fuzzy memory
Tomorrow

I wanna be a Warhol
Hanging on your wall
You down there looking up at me

I wanna be a Warhol
Displayed on your wall
Hung up there staring back at you
Staring back at you

Give me a taste of your misery
Let's go, won't you please come play chemistry
And sorrow, I can't believe anything that you're telling me
Let's go, the walls are closing in and melting
Nice and slow

I wanna be a Warhol
Hanging on your wall
You down there looking up at me

I wanna be a Warhol
Displayed on your wall
Hung up there staring back at you
Staring back at you

I wanna be a Warhol
Hanging on your wall
Staring down at you

I wanna be a Warhol
Displayed on your wall
Still hung up on you
Still hung up on you
Still hung up on you

    My InterpretationAt first I thought this was about Skiba's enjoyment of painting and art, and it is.
    At first I thought it was influenced by Andy Warhol's paintings but it turns out Skiba is good friends with Monica Warhol, a painter, hence the painting and art references.

    General CommentIts more than that
    with lines like "Still hung up on you"
    he doesn't just want to be liked, he wants an Ex (presumably Rosie O'Laskey) to be into him again

    My InterpretationLooks like a song about someone who wants to be admired, praised, looked up on, just like a piece of art
