Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes

Album: Folie à Deux (2008)
  • I'm coming apart at the seams.
    Pitching myself for leads in other people's dreams.
    Like buzz, buzz, buzz.
    Doc, there's a hole where something was.
    Doc, there's a hole where something was.

    Fell out of bed.
    Butterfly bandage,
    But don't worry.
    You'll never remember,
    Your head is far too blurry.
    Put him in the back of a squad car
    Restrain that man
    He needs his head put through a cat scan.
    Hey editor, I'm undeniable
    Hey Doctor, I'm certifiable
    Oh, I'm a loose bolt of a complete machine
    What a match,
    I'm half doomed and you're semi-sweet

    So boycott love
    Detox just to retox
    And I'd promise you anything for another shot at life
    Imperfect boys
    With their perfect ploys
    Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy

    (Wants to hear you sing about tragedy)

    Oh,

    Little girl
    You got my staring odd, oh
    Or was it just a telescopic camera nod
    Painted doors in the highway
    Truck stop stalls
    Lot-lizards scales to deny my rules
    All the rookies leave your badge and your gun on the desk, when you leave the room

    I'm a loose bolt of a complete machine
    What a match,
    I am half doomed and you're semi-sweet

    So boycott love
    Detox just to retox
    And I'd promise you anything for another shot at life
    Imperfect boys
    With their perfect ploys
    Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy

    (Wants to hear your sing about tragedy)

    Detox just to retox
    Detox just to retox
    Detox just to retox
    Detox just to retox
    So boycott love
    Boycott love

    So boycott love
    Detox just to retox
    And I'd promise you anything for another shot at life
    Imperfect boys
    With their perfect ploys
    Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy

    (Wants to hear you sing)
    Nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy

  • That One Emo Kid No One Likes from Here, In Death Valleydetox just to retox kinda made me think about how you would say that you won't love anyone again, but really you just need time to yourself to heal your broken heart so that you can go back again, you're detox-ing from love, leaving it and doing your best not associate with love, only to fall back in love
  • Delphine from IrelandDetox Just To Retox for me means how I had to boycott Fall Out Boy to concentrate on my exams (cause if I listened to them in the morning I couldn't work after, but if I did it in the evening I wouldn't sleep!) It was a tough few weeks, but I took comfort in the knowledge that right after I would have a month of freedom to retox as much as I wanted :D
