The Mighty Fall

Album: Save Rock And Roll (2013)


  • Bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz originally wrote this as a companion piece to the album's lead single, "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)."
  • G.O.O.D. Music MC Big Sean pops in halfway through with a demi-entendre-filled lovelorn rap verse. Wentz explained to Kerrang! "Lyrically and temp-wise, it made the most sense to bring him in on this song. With this record, we wanted to have a balance, so having Courtney, Elton and Foxes, I felt like there needed to be another voice represented, and Sean fitted the bill."
