Fall Out Boy - Part 9 of 11 - Rat A Tat ft. Courtney Love

Music Video

Rat a Tat is a song by Fall Out Boy, featuring additional vocals by Courtney Love, that is included on the band's fifth studio album, Save Rock and Roll. Released on April 12, 2013, the lyrics and music were written by Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman, Andy Hurley, and Courtney Love.

Music Video Edit

The song's music video sees Courtney Love leading an all-female evil army who hook Patrick Stump up to some equipment that brainwashes him into hating music. The promo is the ninth installment in The Young Blood Chronicles series of clips, which explain how the band ended up blindfolded in the back of the black van in "The Phoenix" visual.

LyricsEdit

It's Courtney, bitch
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey!
No thesis existed for burning cities down at such a rampant rate
No graphics and no fucking Powerpoint presentation
So they just DIY'd that shit and they built their own bombs
She's his suicide blond, she's number than gold

Are you ready for another bad poem?
One more off-key anthem
Let your teeth sink in
Remember me as I was, not as I am

And I said "I'll check in tomorrow if I don't wake up dead"
I kept wishing she had blonde ambition
And she let go to my head

Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
If my love is weapon, there's no second guessing when I say
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
My heart is a grenade, you pull the pin and say
We're all fighting, growing old, we're all fighting, growing old
In the hopes of a few minutes more
To get, get on St. Peter's list, but you need to lower your standards
'Cause it's never getting any better than this

We are professional ashes of roses
This kerosene's live, you settled your score
This is where you come to beg, unborn and unshaven
Killing fields of fire to a congress of ravens
This is what we do, baby, we nightmare you

I'm about to make your sweat roll backwards
And your heart beat in reverse
Our guts can't be reworked
As alone as a little white church in the middle of the desert getting burned
But I'll take your heart served up two ways
I sing a bitter song
I'm the lonelier version of you, I just don't know where I went wrong

Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
If my love is weapon, there's no second guessing when I say
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
My heart is a grenade, you pull the pin and say
We're all fighting, growing old, we're all fighting, growing old
In the hopes of a few minutes more
To get, get on St. Peter's list, but you need to lower your standards
'Cause it's never getting any better than this

Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this

She's sick and she's wrong, she's your dirty blonde
And you sink inside her like a suicide bomb
He says "I've seen bigger", she says "I've lit better"
And they throw the matches down into the glitter
Not a dry eye left in the house
Go boy, go boy, run for your life
Go boy, go boy, run for your life
Go boy, go boy, run for your life

We're all fighting, growing old, we're all fighting, growing old
In the hopes of a few minutes more
To get, get on St. Peter's list, but you need to lower your standards
'Cause it's never getting any better than this

Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
Rat a tat, tat, rat a tat, tat, tat, hey
It's never getting any better than this
