  • Ellen from Sydney, AustraliaWow... this song is everything i love in music. One thing i love about Panic is their Clever Lyrics (Thankyou Ryan!!!). They aren't stupid meaningless lovesongs, they use sophisticated language, and are different and unique! I dunno about their new album though, When the moon fell in love with the sun, and the clouds dance by and there were also rainbows and puppies and... well you get it...
  • Lexi from Buffalo, Nyoh and Ryan's dad died in July of 06 just fyi.
  • Lexi from Buffalo, Nyyeah it's about ryan's (abusive) alcoholic dad.
    he hsan't said "my dad was abusive" or anything, but "the bruises and contusions will remind me what you did when you wake" kind of gave it away.
  • Kayla from Port Orcard, Wa"Long live the car crash hearts", thats right.
  • Kayla from Port Orcard, WaLove Panic! But I agree with Natalie, Fall Out Boy is the best!
  • Emma from Dorset, Vtyeah this is about ryan's dad's alcohol addiction. his dad was in the hospital and stuff for all of that.and when he says "we deal we deal" its because he had to deal with it all even though it was tough.
  • Krissy from Boston, MaI love this song. I love Panic! At The Disco.
  • Natalie from Chicago, IlThis song is amazing! I love Panic! But I love Fall Out Boy even more!
  • Katherine from Akron, OhI love this song too, but I think it can be any type of self-destructive behavior
