"American Beauty/American Psycho" as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman, Andrew Hurley, Sebastian Akchote and Nikki Sixx....
She's an American beauty
I'm an American psycho
She's an American beauty
I'm an American, I'm an American
American Psycho
I'm an American, I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

I think I fell in love again
Maybe I just took too much cough medicine
I'm the best worst thing that hasn't happened to you yet
The best worst thing
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
And you can kill me, kill me or let God sort 'em out
Kill me, kill me or

She's an American beauty
I'm an American psycho
She's an American beauty
I'm an American, I'm an American
American Psycho
I'm an American, I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

I'm an American, I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

I wish I dreamt in the shape of your mouth
But it's your thread count I really care about
Stay up 'til the lights go out
Stay up, Stay up
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
And as we're drifting off to sleep
All those dirty thoughts of me
They were never yours to keep

Altered boys, altered boys
We're the things that love destroyed
(I'm an American, I'm an American)
You, me, us, them
We're just resurrection men
(I'm an American, I'm an American)
Us, we were only there, to make you live again
(I'm an American, I'm an American)
Us, we were pity sex, nothing more and nothing less
(I'm an American)

She's an American beauty
I'm an American psycho
She's an American beauty
I'm an American, I'm an American
American Psycho
I'm an American, I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

I'm an American, I'm an American, I'm an American psycho
I'm an American, I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

    My InterpretationMost part of the clip is about the differences between an american psycho and an american beauty, she hits a lot of bad dudes which attack her, and it hurts the Boy who is the interpretation of american, half psycho and half beauty and young, at the end another kid comes like if it meant another president comes and the same happens, the members of the group are here to take the bodies out, like if they had to do all the shitty job.

    The lyrics now

    There are lots of repetitions, like the boy at the start and the new one at the end of the clip, he says he's crazy and he loves her, and he is hurting him just as in the clip, saying she's taking the truth, but not all of it. He says that the american beauty will kill him one day, his love will. So it's a love song quite hidden in the lyrics, written from a guy which is maybe poor and in a bad situation, to a girl which has got everything and is really beautiful.
