Spent most of last night
Dragging this lake
For the corpses of all my past mistakes
Sell me out, the jokes on you
We are salt and you are the wound

Empty another bottle
And let me tear you to pieces
This is me wishing you into the worst situations
I'm the kind of kid that can't let anything go
But you wouldn't know a good thing
If it came up and slit your throat

Whoa, whoa
Ooh
Whoa, whoa

Your remorse hasn't fallen on deaf ears
Rather ones that just don't care
'Cause I know that your in between arms somewhere
Next to heartbeats
Where you shouldn't dare sleep
Now, I'll teach you a lesson
For keeping secrets from me

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

And did you hear the news?
I could dissect you
And gut you on this stage
Not as eloquent as I may have imagined
But it will get the job done
And you're done

Every line is plotted and designed to leave you
Standing on your bedroom window's ledge
And everyone else
That it hits, that it gets to
Is nothing more than collateral damage

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying "No once in a while"
"Oh once in a while"

    General Commentgod...i'd have to agree with everyone here. i doubt you can like Fall Out Boy (commonly referred to as FOB haha) unless you've had your heart ripped from your chest.

    on my super sad nights, i rake my lake of mistakes, and it only makes the tears more bitter. we were happy...we were on top of the f***in world. but then this ass decided that he'd take her away. from the very first time i saw him...like back in 6th grade or so...there was a worry i felt towards him. but for like 4 years, nothing ever happened...so i threw out my worries. but now, that tell-tale fear came back and drove her words into my heart: "i like someone else now..." my heart was ripped right out, and torn apart to the puppetry of her words. damn...i couldn't go on. it killed me...and it might not have been so bad if it wasn't him. i still hope that something goes wrong and she realizes that he's not the right choice. maybe that'd bring her back to me. maybe not. i sound terrible hoping something wrong happens to the girl i love, but FOB's doing it haha. i'm the kind of kid that can't let anything go...and it sucks. "...maybe you should try saying no once in a while..." : beautiful.

    i'm through with it though. if there was ever a second chance, of course i'd go for it again. i'm just a hopeless romantic with a shrivled heart. i look at life like for every bad thing that happens, something good comes from it. so, the way i'm going, my life is gonna be phenominal. yeah, i'd say i'm pretty emo...
