Lyricist Pete Wentz likes his cryptic titles and this is one of them. In a video interview Wentz refused to tell the New Musical Express what the title stands for. Instead, he said, people "will have to figure it out on their own."
This was co-written by and features Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes. Drummer Andy Hurley told The Neptunes website about the collaboration with the hip-hop producer: "That was one of the coolest experiences, because I love Pharrell and I love hip-hop. He ended up being one of the nicest and most down-to-earth dudes. He made me kind of nervous because he has just done so many good songs."

"my head's in heaven, my soles are in hell. Let's meet in the purgatory of my hips and get well." i think this is talking about a drug addiction and being high, but he feels terrible about it. And he tries escaping through sex. And the begining verse is saying he's younge, but he feels older bcuz of all the bad stuff that has happened to him. and while other ppl his age are going on and doing something with their lives, he's trying to escape it through drugs.

It is interesting how all of the songs directly about drugs are ones he says we "need to figure out on our own". There you go, kids, most of FOB's lyrics are about drugs, sex and horrible relationships. XD LOVE IT!

I think it's "Waiter, Actor, Model, Singer" because it says so on http://theneptunes.org/fall-out-boy-wams-waiteractormodelsinger-album-version/. I assume this is The Neptunes' official site. I'm not sure where the four words come from, my guess is it's about one of the musicians that performs in the song, or maybe each word describes a past job of each member of FOB seperately. I don't know what they did for a living before music so it's just a guess.
