The Phoenix
by 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
Here comes this rising tide

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
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 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
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
Wave the white flag

The war is won
Before it’s begun
Release the doves
Surrender love
Wave the white flag

The war is won
Before it’s begun
Release the doves
Surrender love
Wave the white flag

The war is won
Before it’s begun
Release the doves
Surrender love
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

Put on your war paint
