Champagne for My Real Friends, Real Pain for My Sham Friends – Fall Out Boy

From Under the Cork TreeYou are a getaway car 
   – a rush of blood to the head
But me, I’m just the covers
   on top of your bed
You steer away in a rear view mirror
   – you make my head swim
I keep you warm and won’t ask you
   where you’ve been

With your backless black dress
   soaked to the skin
When it’s said and done
   they’re all scrambling
And we’re friends, yeah we’re friends
Just because we move units

Strike us like matches, cause everyone deserves the flames

We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame
At least everyone is trying, everyone is shining
Everyone deserves the flames but it’s such a shame
Such a shame

The sounds of this small town make my ears hurt
Oh yeah, you caught me.
But I caught you way worse
They say, “You want a war? You’ve got a war.”
But who are you fighting for?
The tides out, the ship’s run aground
We drown traitors in shallow water

With your backless black dress soaked to the skin
When it’s said and done they’re all scrambling
And we’re friends, yeah we’re friends
Just because we move units

Strike us like matches,
cause everyone deserves the flames
We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame

At least everyone is trying, everyone is shining
Everyone deserves the flames but it’s such a shame
Such a shame

* Fall Out Boy; From Under the Cork Tree (C) 2005 Chicago X Softcore (BMI)

    Oh my Pete! Hehe. Now I really have to watch OTH. =| How about the others? No special appearances?

    Yup. I bought FOB’s cd around March, I think. I’ve liked “Sugar, We’re Going Down” but when I heard “Dance, Dance,” heh, told meself that I have to buy their album. =P “Champagne…” is my current LSS hehe. After “Nobody Puts Baby…” and “Sophomore Slump…” and… OK. I’ll stop.

    Do you have their first album?! Waah. I want to hear something from their prevs album e. Di ko naman alam yung title. =| Lam mo naman sila, kakaiba mag-title ng songs hehe.
