Album: A Fever You Can't Sweat OutReleased: 2005
This song is about the novel by Chuck Palahniuk called Invisible Monsters
. This is evidenced by the lyrics "Walls line the bullet holes" (the book opens with a shooting), as well as, "Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention." This is the prose Palahniuk uses in the book, mocking a photographer telling the model how to feel. Also, "Boys will be boys hiding in estrogen" refers to the transgender individual in the novel, and "Wearing aubergine dreams" refers to that character's favorite color of makeup.
Palahniuk's most famous book is Fight Club
, which was later turned into a movie with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, but he has written quite a few very intriguing books. His uniquely strange style has given him somewhat of a cult following, and Panic At The Disco are huge fans.
