Video Synopsis Edit

A steel brief case with glowing contents is delivered to Fall Out Boy. Andy handcuffs Patrick's hands to the case and he heads out. As he walks down the street looking for predators, a boy on a bicycle approaches him. As he is staring at the bicycle boy a hooded women sneaks up behind him, then tazes and kidnaps him. They bring him to a dark room with vixens. The vixens torture him in various ways then chop off his hand and have the boy deliver it to Pete while at his girlfriend's house. Finding the chopped hand in the bag, Pete frees a falcon on a rooftop. Nearby band member Andy sees it right before getting kidnapped by vixens in a parking lot via truck, and Joe gets kidnapped in a gas station. Pete gets kidnapped on the rooftop. Meanwhile, the vixens continue to torture Patrick by laying him on a flatbed while sticking probes into his body and removing some of his organs. Patrick is then strapped to a chair following the next video, "Young Volcanoes." The screen blanks out after Patrick snaps.

LyricsEdit

Put on your war paint
You are a brick tied to me that's dragging me down
Strike a match and I'll burn you to the ground
We are the jack-o-lanterns in July setting fire to the sky
Here, here comes, there's a rising tide so come on
Put on your war paint
Cross walks, crossed hearts and hope-to-dies
Silver clouds with grey lining

So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance alone to the beat of your heart

Hey young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out?
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing our vintage misery, no I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Bring home the boys and scrap, scrap, metal the tanks
Get hitched, make a career out of robbing banks
Because the world is just a teller and we are wearing black
"You broke our spirit" says the note we pass

So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance alone to the beat of your heart

Hey young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out?
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing our vintage misery, no I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Put on your war paint

The war is won before it's begun
Release the doves, surrender love
The war is won before it's begun
Release the doves, surrender love
The war is won before it's begun
Release the doves, surrender love
The war is won before it's begun
Release the doves, surrender love

Hey young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out?
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing our vintage misery, no I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Hey young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out?
I'm gonna change you like a remix, then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Put on your war paint
