Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off Lyrics
And all you think about in bed?
When the lights are dim and your hands are shaking as you're sliding off your dress
Think of what you did
And how I hope to God he was worth it
When the lights are dim and...

This song's about him dating this chick and she banged some other guy and cheated on him and he found out. He got mad... He broke up with her and now he's like, was he worth it? "Then think of what you did and how I hope to god he was worth it" he's asking her if her fling with that guy was worth wrecking their relationship

I think that these guy and girl went out, and they were like really close, then broke up - not sure why. anyway so this girl goes out and does another guy, just a one night stand, totally meaningless and a stupid attempt to get over her ex. but by sleeping woth another guy she's totally ended the relationship with the guy she really loves, because he won't have her back once he knows what she's done, even though he knows she still loves him "You know it will always just be me" but now he just thinks she's a slag, and he's determined to let everyone know what he thinks "I hope you didn't expect to get all of the attention" and it doesn't matter how bad she felt after her one night stand "Shock sets in and the stomach acid finds a new way to make be sick" she's totally ruined their chances of ever being together again.
The song is about a girl who had a meaningless one night stand and when her lover found out he dumps her. He's saying that he's the best she'll ever have and that he knows she's sorry and still loves him but he won't have her back. Then he throws it in her face to show her how much she hurt him. He's saying it was one of the biggest mistakes of her life and something she will always regret.

This porn star that is trying to prove his point to a girl that he did on camera. Lyrics "get these teen hearts beating faster" as in masturbation while "dance on beat" meaning ejactulate on cue, like most pornstars must do.

He Is Talking About A Girl Cheating On Him, Obviously. "Testostorone Boy And Harlequin Girls"
It Means The Boys Are Raging With Hormones, And The Girls Are Fools, Giving Them What They Want.
"You know it will always be just me." She has made a terrible mistake. She had it all, but she threw it away for sex in the backseat of another guys car.

I feel like this song is about more than just Ryan and his ex-girlfriend. For one thing, the lyrics ask,
"So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?"
It brings other people into the big picture. For instance, does he suggest that all relationships- be they plutonic or romantic- are far too prone to betrayal? Or does he ask, "Will you testosterone filled boys, and girls with no minds of your own continue to dance to this beat?" "This beat" refering to the betrayal. Will you hold your lover close, instead of the one who loves you, who you claim to love?
I apologize for the AP over-analysis, but really, could this be a statment about a generation, and not just some break-up song?

I went to P!ATD's concert the other night, and this is basically how he explained the song: "This next song is about f***ing completely random strangers, and all that fun stuff." So, pretty much it's a girl cheating on her signifacant other with someone she doesn't even know. And the title explains how she lies about what she did.

The amount of people they've had sex with are represented by fish. And when she follows the trail she picks up the fish (her) because her husband's only love was her (he had only one fish) and so she decides to kill herself because she loved him. They get carried to the ocean and Live Happily Ever After :D
anonymous Oct 4th, 2011 10:29pm report
if you look at the video.
Every Fish represents every guy she slept with. and if you remember she picked up a fish. which she meant she slept with someone AND while she was dating someone. so the guy kills him self
and so does the girl.
then they go to the sea and thats where fish are set free, and they dont have to worry about anything!

If you watch the official music video on youtube on Fueledbyramen's channel there is someone who had a great guess, that the Fish in the tanks represents the number of people you've slept with and then the person explained more detailed, I read it and I was like amazed by how that person figured it out.

I always figured this song was about two people acting a 'love scene' and the girl is really nervous while the guy has done so many of these type of scenes that its almost second nature while the girl is incredibly apprehensive. The guys is so used to the limelight almost 'diva-ish' while this is the girl's first love scene, I think this makes a little sense when it says'camera man swing the focus' IDK just my take.

He's said at 2 of his concerts I was at it's just about people fucking everyone and each other all the time :)

Is it still me that makes you sweat
Am I who you think about in bed
When the lights are dim and your hands are shaking as you're sliding off your dress
This is about a guy and a girl who used to be together, but he caught her cheating. Full of spite, this song was directed at her. He asks her if she misses him at all, or if she feels guilt or remorse before she sleeps with her new lover.
Then think of what you did
And how I hope to God he was worth it
When the lights are dim and your heart is racing as your fingers touch your skin
More of the same, really. The guy asks her if her new guy was worth destroying what they had. These first two sections seem to show that she slept with the new guy based on surface features or sexual prowess.
I've got more wit, a better kiss, a hotter touch, a better fuck
Than any boy you'll ever meet, sweetie you had me
The guy does a bit of bragging here. It appears he is trying to make her feel remorse, by saying how much better he was than the new guy.
Girl I was it, look past the sweat, a better love deserving of
Exchanging body heat in the passenger seat
No, no, no you know it will always just be, me
More of the previous, but the words "a better love" indicate that the girl was into the first guy, not simply based on surface things.
Let's get these teen hearts beating, faster, faster
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close
A harlequin was traditionally a "comic servant," indicating the guy is saying that girls are just jokes.
So I guess we're back to us, oh cameraman, swing the focus
In case I lost my train of thought, where was it that we last left off
(Let's pick up, pick up)
This is a lead-in for the second verse. The first guy is saying "let's go back in time to see what happened"
Oh now I do recall, we just were getting to the part
Where the shock sets in, and the stomach acid finds a new way to make you get sick
This is the first guy describing how the girl felt when she was caught.
I hope you didn't expect that you'd get all of the attention
Now let's not get selfish
Did you really think I’d let you kill this chorus
The is basically saying that, though he is upset, he feels this was just a cry for attention, and it worked a little too well. The guy is over her, thus not letting her kill his chorus.

Kay well actually at a concert, brendon even said himself..
That this song is about f****** a complete stranger.
anonymous Jul 8th, 2011 7:39pm report
Brendon said this song is about having sex with strangers at the concert at Summerfest 2011.

I was just at the Vegas concert, and Brendan introduced it as "sometimes, you see someone walking down the street and you just say 'hey, lets f***!' and then you do, and that is what this song is about." But that is just according to him.

ok first of all about the guy that slammed panic! just cause you don't like them dosnt mean you need to talk shit about them cause there are people who will beat you for saying that about bands they like and second of all i also like most of the bands you like so.... people can like all different kinds of music and just cause someone likes panic! dosn't mean their emo and about the people being asses to him he dose have a right to his oppinon just this may not have been the best place to post it.......
and for what the song means..... i think its about a girl who did a guy in a one night stand trying to get over her ex but he really wanted her back but not after her cheating and the chorus is pretty much just saying hold what you have close and dont fuck it up........ well thats it! goodbye all! i love you all (even the p!atd hater) and um... ceack out my other song meanings please

The song is about how a man was loyal to his wife , but his wife had sex with numerous other guys. The man found out and killed himself. Then the woman realized none of the guys were worth it. She kills her self too because she lost one of the most important things to her.
anonymous Mar 27th, 2011 3:09pm report
I mean, isnt it kind of obvious? boy and girl were together, she cheated on him, they break up. Now shes stuck with the guy she cheated on boy with. Boy knows he is much better than the other guy ("i got more wit, a better kiss, a hotter touch, a better fuck, than any boy youll ever meet"). He is asking her if it was worth it in the end to cheat, because she had him, who was the best. Girl knows boy is better too, but she doesnt want to admit it.
The line in the movie that the title comes from is "lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off, but its better if you do." so the "sequel" to this song is but its better if you do, where the boy goes to a strip club cuz he feels lonely and to show the girl what she did to him.
Oh panic!, you are brilliant. ;)

A boy and girl were going out. Then the girl goes out and cheats on him.
This ruins their relationship, so her ex is saying that she should think of the consequences and that he hopes it was worth it. He then says that he's better than any other guy, and that she'll regret it for the rest of her life.
The chorus is about guys only thinking about sex and girls all being just actors and pretending to love.
The second part is returning to how he dumps her. She's shocked and probably thought that he wouldn't dump her even after she cheats on him because she means enough to him to get away with it.
He's saying that she shouldn't think so much of herself.

This song is amazing how it can relate lying to sex, the entire first stanza is about the confrontation of having to ask if the girl is still thinking of the guy, instead of the many she's slept with. And of course, the pre-chorus will always say, that "He" is the the one that she accually loves, and she'll never be able to forget about him, regardless of how many men she sleeps with.
In addition, the frase "Where the shock sets in, and the stomach acid finds a new way to make you get sick" Is something that you feel both when you're found in a lie, as well as when you're about to have an orgasm and you're holding your breath.

This is a song about young love. The narrator grew very close to and even fell in love with a girl. The girl broke up with him. The part about exchanging body heat in the passenger seat shows there is still tension between them. Also, they didn't end on bad terms like her cheating him. Maybe because he was too into her or for another reason like she just wanted to be friends. But the part "look past the sweat, a better love deserving of" makes it seem like he had romantic ideals, while she got cold feet for some reason. When she did move on, the new guy meant nothing except a distraction from the past. He's not saying he really is better in bed when he says he's got a better fuck, he saying that he cared so it was special. Someone who really cares is rare (especially with teens) and she threw it away. Her stomach gets upset because the new men are purely carnal pleasure, they don't even really know her, so it feels wrong. The chorus is saying that boys are fueled by lust and girls but on a flashy, colorful facade to impress them. The part about the camera man swing the focus and not letting her kill the chorus means that the chorus is about a wide-spread issue and not just her, or the two of them for that matter. The chorus itself means one of two things. It is either saying that that's just how romance is sometimes and you should take the chance anyway. Once again, the teen hearts at the beginning of the chorus implies that this is especially true for young love. They could also be challenging the young lovers. Asking if they will try to not hurt someone the same way and be fueled purely by lust. Saying they shouldn't fall into this sad trend, and really care for their lover that they tell them to hold close. Either way, the fact that he asks if they will dance to this beat shows that he is asking a question to the audience, as opposed to just instructing them
