Music Video

The music video for the song is the first of the Young Blood Chronicles, a series with the band filming a video for every song on Save Rock and Roll. It begins late at night, with a figure - later revealed to be rapper 2 Chainz - walking away from a black van parked in a forest clearing. He starts a bonfire by pouring gasoline over a wood pile and lighting it up with a match. Two women then exit the van, carrying various music instruments belonging to Fall Out Boy which the band members then toss into the fire. Among the items they throw in are the band's guitars, a bass, drumsticks and various drums and cymbals. They also throw in amplifiers and Fall Out Boy records such as Take This To Your GraveFrom Under the Cork Tree, and Live in Phoenix, along with a Fall Out Boy wristband and Fall Out Toy Works comics. 2 Chainz then uses a flamethrower to speed up the incineration process, while the women return to the van and open its rear doors, revealing four hooded, bound men that are implied to be Fall Out Boy themselves. The camera then closes in on 2 Chainz's face as he holds up a match and stares at the band menacingly, ending the video.

Fall Out Boy's capture is shown in the music video for the following single, "The Phoenix", released on March 25, 2013.

LyricsEdit

Oh woah, oh woah
Oh woah, oh woah

Be careful making wishes in the dark, dark
Can't be sure when they've hit their mark, mark
And besides in the mean, meantime I'm just dreaming of tearing you apart
I'm in the de-details with the devil so all the world can never get on my level
I just gotta get you off the cage, I'm a young lover's rage
Gonna need a spark to ignite
My songs know what you did in the dark

So light 'em up, up, up, light 'em up, up, up
Light 'em up, up, up, I'm on fire
So light 'em up, up, up, light 'em up, up,up
Light 'em up, up, up, I'm on fire
Oh woah, oh woah
In the dark, dark
Oh woah, oh woah
In the dark, dark

Riders keep riding with their pride
Somewhere another pretty vein just dies
I've got the scars from tomorrow and I wish you could see
That you're the antidote to everything except for me
A constellation of tears on your lashes
Burn everything you love then burn the ashes
Hit me and everything collides
My childhood spat back out the monster that you see
My songs know what you did in the dark

So light 'em up, up, up, light 'em up, up, up
Light 'em up, up, up, I'm on fire
So light 'em up, up, up, light 'em up, up,up
Light 'em up, up, up, I'm on fire
Oh woah, oh woah
In the dark, dark
Oh woah, oh woah
In the dark, dark

My songs know what you did in the dark
My songs know what you did in the dark

So light 'em up, up, up, light 'em up, up, up
Light 'em up, up, up, I'm on fire
So light 'em up, up, up, light 'em up, up,up
Light 'em up, up, up, I'm on fire
Oh woah, oh woah
In the dark, dark
Oh woah, oh woah
In the dark, dark
Oh woah, oh woah
