  • Jon from Mishawaka, Ini think this song is about being so obsessed with the physical part of a relationship that you dont stop to actually be in the realtionship. "we're making out inside crashed cars"in this part, they are more worried about making out than the fact that they have just been in a car accident "you only hold me up like this cuz you don't know who i really am" this one's obvious "all of our moves make up for the silence" they barely know each other so they have nothing to talk about but they still manage to stay together because they just wanna have sex
  • Brittany from Townsville, AustraliaYeah, Yeah, Yeah FOB is awsome with thier lyrics
  • Alyssa from Milwaukee, WiAlot of FOB songs are about sex incase you haven't noticed!
  • Dan from Cincinnati, NvFall out boy are genious it is about sex sex is a way of life in america so why not write about it
  • Kayla from Port Orcard, WaThis song is basically about sex, in case people haven't figured that one out.
  • Kayla from Port Orcard, WaLuv this song.
    "Oh the way your makeup stains my pillow case"
