About The Take Over, The Breaks Over

""The Take Over, the Breaks Over"" (rendered with quotation marks as part of its title on the album track listing) is a song by American rock band Fall Out Boy and the fourth single from their third studio album Infinity on High (2007). The song impacted radio on August 7, 2007. The music composition was inspired by vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump's love of David Bowie, specifically the song "Rebel Rebel"; the lyrics were penned by bassist Pete Wentz. The song's title is a reference to Jay-Z's 2001 song "Takeover". The single found its greatest success in Australia, peaking at No. 17 on the singles chart there and finishing at No. 90 on the year-end chart. The song's music video won a Canadian MuchMusic Video Award for People's Choice: Favorite International Video, beating Flo Rida, Kanye West, Rihanna, and Timbaland. It was also nominated for Best International Video – Group at the ceremony but lost to Linkin Park's "Bleed It Out".""The Take Over, the Breaks Over"" features two guitar solos performed by guest guitarists Ryan Ross (formerly from Panic! at the Disco) and Chad Gilbert (from New Found Glory).

Baby, seasons change but people don't
And I'll always be waiting in the back room
I'm boring but overcompensate with
Headlines and flash, flash, flash photography

But don't pretend you ever forgot about me
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
Wouldn't you rather be a widow than a divorcee?
Style your wake for fashion magazines
Widow or a divorcee?
Don't pretend it, don't pretend

(We don't fight fair)
(We don't fight fair)

They say your head could be your prison
Then these are just conjugal visits
People will dissect us till this doesn't mean a thing anymore
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me

Wouldn't you rather be a widow than a divorcee?
Style your wake for fashion magazines
Widow or a divorcee?
Don't pretend it, don't pretend

We do it in the dark
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places
We do it in the dark
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places
We don't fight fair
(We don't fight fair)
We don't fight fair
(We don't fight fair)
We don't fight fair

We do it in the dark
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places
We do it in the dark
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places
We don't fight fair
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places
We don't fight fair

Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
We don't fight fair
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
We don't fight fair
