Album: Folie à Deux (2008)
  • In a video interview, lyricist Pete Wentz told the New Musical Express that this is one of the songs he'd like people to figure out on their own. He added: "Just think about getting past 27. I've got a lot of friends that I want to make it there."
  • 27 is the age when Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Pigpen from the Grateful Dead, Al Wilson from Canned Heat, Brian Jones from The Rolling Stones and Kurt Cobain all died.

  • Amanda from Evansville, InThis song is obviously about drugs. "I've got a lot of friends who are stars, but some are just black holes". The people he wants to make it are those that don't really care about themselves. An addict is the worst friend to have, take it from me. Great song!
  • Joyce from Jensen Beach, FlMy favorite song off the album too, and this is my favorite FOB album...every song is AMAZING and different from the others. And they all make you stop and think. Pete and Patrick out did themselves this time!!
