#5DaysofFOB – Day 3

As many of you know, I am a HUGE Fall Out Boy fan! When I heard they were getting back together I had no choice but to get my ticket right away. In honor of the band’s return, I will take you through 5 days of Fall Out Boy leading up to their SOLD OUT concert in Columbus on May 17 for their Save Rock and Roll tour.

 Day 3

“Golden” by Fall Out Boy is one of my all time favorite songs, ever! This song is so beautiful and has a lot of meaning.

My interpretation of the song: we are taught at a young age to follow the “golden rule”, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (Matt. 7:12) but how is this a fair rule when people are constantly treating us like s*&%? Why should I treat this person with respect when they don’t give me any? It is a cruel rule, but it is how God intends for us all to behave. Because of this, when I look into the eyes of the enemy I see God, so I have no choice but to turn the other cheek and give them respect.

This song is short, which sucks, but I love it. Listen to it and check out the lyrics:

#5DaysofFOB – Day 2

As many of you know, I am a HUGE Fall Out Boy fan! When I heard they were getting back together I had no choice but to get my ticket right away. In honor of the band’s return, I will take you through 5 days of Fall Out Boy leading up to their SOLD OUT concert in Columbus on May 17 for their Save Rock and Roll tour.

Day 2

“Drink down that gin and kerosene and come spit on bridges with me. Just to keep us warm, light a match to leave me be.” 

The opening lines to Fall Out Boy’s “Nobody Put’s Baby In The Corner” is saying in so many words, “go kill yourself and leave me alone”. My interpretation of the song: it is about someone who is bitter because they have just got their heart broken and they want that person to disappear off of the face of the earth. The only problem is, though their heart is broken, they are still in love and too jealous to completely leave this person in fear that they will go be with someone else. So they put up with all of their drama and the chance to be free and happy because they are still in love. Everyone has been there right?

A crazy, bitter, and tear jerking love story sung beautifully.

Below is the song and a link to lyrics so you can see what I mean. Let me know what you think:
