"Young And Menace" as written by and Patrick Stump Pete Wentz....
We've gone way too fast for way too long
And we were never supposed to make it half this far
And I lived so much life, lived so much life
I think that God is gonna have to kill me twice
Kill me twice like my name was Nikki Sixx
I woke up in my shoes again but somewhere you exist, singing

Oops I, did it again, I
Forgot what I was losing my mind about
I only wrote this down to make you press rewind
And send a message, "I was young and a menace"

Young and a menace

Woke up on the wrong side of reality
And there's a madness that's just coursing right through me
And as far as the time, far as the time
Not sure I'm there yet but I'm searching out the ride, yeah

Oops I, did it again, I
Forgot what I was losing my mind about
I only wrote this down to make you press rewind
And send a message, "I was young and a menace"

Young and a menace

If I am off the deep end
I'm just here to become the best yet
I'm just here for the psych assessment
I'm just here for the, for the

(For!) young and a menace

We've gone way too fast for way too long

    Song MeaningHas Fall Out Boy gone way too fast for way too long? Okay, the basis of this song has a very evident meaning.

    "We’ve gone way too fast for way too long."
    "Oh, I only wrote this down to make you press rewind, and send a message that I was young and a menace."
    "And I lived so much life, lived so much life"

    Whoever the writer of this song may be, they are very metaphorically trying to communicate that their life has been crazy and they are now reflecting on it. This is evident by the "press rewind" lyric. What they are pressing rewind on is a life that was fast, bad, and fun. They considered themselves a menace when they were younger but it was what they considered the ideal romanticized living.

    I don't know who the primary song-writer of this song was but it was most likely Pete. These seem like his lyrics.
