7 Minutes In Heaven Lyrics
With anyone who will lie down
I'll be stuck fixated on one star
When the world is crashing down
I keep telling myself
I keep telling myself
I'm not the desperate type
But you've got me looking in...

It's about how pete almost over dosed on atavan...That's obvious...

Come on now... The drug is called atavan... pay attention, now, as a friend from high school of the band (wilmette, IL) pete od'd on atavan... nearly killed him (or did for what felt like 7 minutes... Song title?)

but that's just like a blanket to describe his overall feeling.
Fall Out Boy has mostly songs about relationships...i mean they are borderline emo...dont get me wrong,theyre awesome, but emo nonetheless.
the song is about relationships and how people use sex and relationships as a means of relief and simultaneous self destruction. Sex and atavan are both tools he uses for relief, this song just makes that connection

Wow. This has gotta be the most civilized argument about the meaning of a song I've ever seen. Cheers to you all.
Personally I have no idea. I just know that the song's totally awsome. :)

About the straight-edge thing, not everyone includes the sex part.
I don't know about Pete's personal beliefs, but I think it's debating with himself whether he wants to dwell on his relationship gone awry or whether he wants to get over it. What he knows is that he doesn't want to be alone anymore and he's trying to figure out what he wants to do about it.
And I think "I'm having another episode, I just need a stronger dose" as well as the title are references to Pete's depression and reference to the incident in "Summer Song."

"'It's about how he almost ODed anyway'
Uhh, no, that's "I've got a dark alley and a bad idea that says you should shut your mouth" about the OD get the facts straight"
You're right, I misspoke. I meant to say that's what the "atavan" part of the title was referring to. I'm aware of what "I've got a dark alley..." is about.

"What does being straight edge have to do with who he sleeps with? Straight edge means they don't do drugs/drink alcohol. He can sleep with whomever he wants..."
Another part of straightedge is no promiscuous sex. He can sleep with whomever he wants, but doing it just to ease the pain is breaking edge.
It's about how he almost ODed anyway
