Fall Out Boy - The Phoenix

Another amazing song from Fall Out Boy newest album (at least for me). But first, let's take a look at the lyrics (credit to plyrics.com):

Put on your war paint

You are a brick tied to me that’s dragging me down
Strike a match and I’ll burn you to the ground
We are the jack-o-lanterns in July
Setting fire to the sky
Here, here comes this rising tide
So come on
Put on your war paint

Cross walks and crossed hearts and hope-to-dies
Silver clouds with grey linings
So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you’re waiting for the song to start
So dance alone to the beat of your heart

Hey young blood
Doesn’t it feel
Like our time is running out
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix
You’re wearing our vintage misery
No; I think it looked a little better on me
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix

Bring home the boys and scrap scrap metal the tanks
Get hitched, make a career out of robbing banks
Because the world is just a teller and
We are wearing black masks
“You broke our spirit,” says the note we pass

So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you’re waiting for the song to start
So dance alone to the beat of your heart

Hey young blood
Doesn’t it feel
Like our time is running out
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix
You’re wearing our vintage misery
No; I think it looked a little better on me
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix

Put on your war paint

The war is won
Before it’s begun
Release the doves
Surrender love
[4x]
(Wave the white flag)
(Wave the white flag)

Hey young blood
Doesn’t it feel
Like our time is running out
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix
You’re wearing our vintage misery
No; I think it looked a little better on me
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix

Hey young blood
Doesn’t it feel
Like our time is running out
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix
You’re wearing our vintage misery
No; I think it looked a little better on me
I’m gonna change you like a remix
Then I’ll raise you like a phoenix

Put on your war paint
 The music video on YouTube:


This music video is the prequel of My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark music video. It show Fall Out Boy standing over a briefcase. Obviously a precious briefcase, looking at how Patrick then cuff it to his wrist for safekeeping. And then Patrick is abducted by those sexy mean women. They cut his hand and torture him. Eww.. Then one by one, Fall Out Boy members abducted. MTV said that this video is the 2nd chapter out of 11. Wow.. I'm looking forward to the 3rd chapter! But can they spare Patrick please? He's miserable enough (laugh).

He didn't realize he was in grave danger.
If you interested, you could download the video here.

So, come on! Put on your war paint!
