The Carpal Tunnel of Love Lyrics

Play "The Carpal Tunnel of Love"
on Amazon Music

We take sour sips from life's lush lips
And we shake, shake, shake the hips in relationships
Stomp out this disaster town
You'll put your eyes to the sun and say, "I know
you're only blinding to keep back what the clouds are hiding."

And...

    This song is about how they think life sucks because when ever there is love they find love hurts like in the disturbing music video

    and by the way pete's dateing ashlee simpson!!

    Duuude, I love this song, but y'all shouldn't take up space conversing... just sayin'. >.>;; Anyway, I guess to me it's like they're tired of rumors and lies and want people to realize things... I dunno. I'm not good at this stuff. xD

    I do think that this song is about lies, but I don't think that "We bullet the words at the mockingbirds, singing" has to with lies destroying the innocent. That doesn't make sense, since "We" refers to Fall Out Boy. It means that Fall Out Boy exposes the lies that naive people are easily convinced into believing. And this song doesn't have anything to do with Pete's girlfriend, by the way. It is more about the band, as a whole, and the message they try to convey through their music.

    "We Take sour sips from life's lush lips

    And we shake, shake, shake the hips in relationships"

    Means that they enjoy their lives

    "Stomp out this disaster town

    You put your eyes to the sun and say 'I know you're only

    blinding to keep back what the clouds are hiding'

    And we might have started singing just a little soon

    We're throwing stones at a glass room"

    Means that they might have conveyed their message too soon

    for some people, and that they try to expose lies.

    "Woah, We're so miserable and stunning

    Woah, Love songs from the genuinely cunning"

    Means that Pete Wentz is an egomaniac.

    And its 3 a.m. and I don't feel like writing anymore.

    I guess I should submit a real interpretation, so here it is: I think this song talks about lies. To me "we're throwing stones at a glass moon" says they are trying to stop the lies. And "we bullet the words at the mockingbird's singing" says the lies are destroying the innocent

    The part at the end when pete speaks his mind
    he is saying

    :It was ice cream headaches and sweet avalanche
    When the pearls in our shells got up to dance
    You call me a bad tipper of the cradle
    But I'm just tired yawns for fawns on hunter's lawns
    We're the has-beens of husbands
    Sharpening the knives of young wives
    Take two years and call me when you're better
    Take tears of mine, find yourself wetter...

    and what that's is supposed to mean is
    :yea I'm no good atleast I addmit it, and no matter how bad I am you will always be worse

    The part towards the end where they start shouting is really weird, but I love it. And the lines where they say they're so miserable and cunning and stunning or whatever. Also, the part about throwing stones at a glass moon. They are all so beatiful.

    This was meant to be an interpretation of the song but it turned out to be a short discussion on whether Pete is single or not!! typical!

    Wow

    Pete is single

    he wouldn't lie to his fans and if he had a girlfriend he shouldn't be ashamed of her

    and, uh, sweetie, it is June 2007 and he's on tour right now so I don't think he's gonna get married very soon

    i think that the songs title is about pete wentz's constant texting to his girl friend. Since he never sees her texting is the only way to contact her.
