The Phoenix

Lyricist: Fall Out Boy    Composer: Fall Out Boy

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
He-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 lining
So we can take the world back from a 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
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 and 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
Wearing all 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
The war is won before it’s begun
Release the doves, surrender love
The war is won before it’s begun
Release the doves, surrender love
The war is won before it’s begun
Release the doves, surrender love

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
Wearing all 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

Put on your war paint
