Thursday Thirteen (And My 100th Post)


Panic at the Disco's (formerly Panic! at the Disco) new album is out, Pretty. Odd. I gotta say, even though it's WAY different than their first album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, it's still rockin' my world. So here are thirteen of my favorite lyrics from Pretty. Odd.




1. Back to the street
Down to our feet
Losing the feeling of feeling unique
Do you know what I mean?
(Nine in the Afternoon)

2. Clouds are marching along, singing a song, just like they do.
If the clouds were singing a song, I'd sing along, wouldn't you too?
If you just knew what they could do.
Oh, if you just knew, what would they do?
And if the birds are just hollow words flying along, singing a song,
What would they do?
If they just knew what they could do.
Oh, if they just knew.
(Do You Know What I'm Seeing?)


3. Take a chance, take you shoes off, dance in the rain
And I was flashing around
And the news spread all over town
I’m not complaining that it’s raining I’m just saying that I like it a lot
More than you think
If the sun would come out and sing with me.
(I Have Friends In Holy Spaces)


4. Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon, don't you go down
Sugarcane in the easy mornin'
Weathervanes my one and lonely.
(Northern Downpour)

5. When the moon fell in love with the sun
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night
When the sun found the moon
She was drinking tea in a garden
Under the green umbrella trees
In the middle of summer
When the moon found the sun
He looked like he was barely hanging on
But her eyes saved his life
In the middle of summer
In the middle of summer
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night
Summer
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night
Summer, summer, summer, summer
All was golden when the day met the night
So he said, "Would it be all right
If we just sat and talked for a little while
If in exchange for your time I give you this smile?"
So she said, "That's okay
As long as you can make a promise
Not to break my little heart
Or leave me all alone in the summer."
Well he was just hanging around
Then he fell in love
And he didn't know how
But he couldn't get out
Just hanging around
Then he fell in love
In the middle of summer
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night
Summer
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night
Summer, summer, summer, summer
When the moon fell in love with the sun
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night
In the middle of summer . . .
(When the Day Met the Night)

6. Imagine knowing me
It's the greatest thing you'd ever imagine
But you'll never know until you're there
No, you'll never know until you're there
(Pas De Cheval)

7. She's the smoke
She's dancin' fancy pirouettes
Swan diving off of the deep end
Of my tragic cigarette
(The Piano Knows Something I Don't Know)

8. And we're all too small
To talk to God
Yes, we're all too smart
To talk to God
(Behind the Sea)

9. Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two
Where summer's lasted longer than
Longer than we do
When nothing really mattered
Except for me to be with you
But in time we all forgot and
We all grew
(Folkin' Around)

10. She held the world upon a string
But she didn't ever hold me
Spun the stars on her fingernails
But it never made her happy
Cause she couldn't ever have me
She said she won the world at a carnival
But she could never win me
Cause she couldn't ever catch me
(She Had the World)

11. I don’t love you
I'm just passing the time
You could love me if I knew how to lie
But who could love me?
I am out of my mind
(She Had the World)

12. The sun was always in her eyes
She didn't even see me
But that girl had so much love, she'd wanna kiss you all the time
Yeah, she'd wanna kiss you all the time
(She Had the World)


13. I'm sure it didn’t ruin her
Just made her more interesting
(She Had the World)


Bonus! 14. But there ain't no sunshine in his song
We must reinvent love
(Mad As Rabbits)

I'm relieved to hear they got rid of the damn '!'. It pretty much destroyed my world every time I had to type it.
