Pretty Handsome Awkward Lyrics

Kickin' it out

Your dream vacation is my hostage refuge
A work in progress you bleed
Just like you puke while running a mile
I beg to differ, make me an offer
Walks on the rain you bleed
Just like you puke while running a mile

Hey, are...

    I think it's about sellouts and how they give away wat they believe in for money and fame

    I read an article where Bert said that this was written when he moved to LA about all the fake people and how they didn't even know they were being fake since they acted so for so long. There are certainly a lot of bleached blonde. I bet this song was recorded before the Black Parade even came out.

    "because gerard got clean and doesn't party with Bert anymore.."
    Guess what? Gerard was still friends with Bert a while after he got sober. So that is hardly the case. ;)
    He hardly said it was about Gerard. It is about someone with "Short blond hair." which isn't exactly Gerard. Heck, it could be about Quinn for all we know.
    I think it is about partying, though.

    2020 calling: Bert confirmed the song was about Gerard at the Rockstar Disrupt Festival in 2019. So basically the theory about this song is true

    im very torn about what this song may mean. it could be about gerard way, but if it was, would bert even tell us? it seems like that would cause a lot of drama which he might have wanted to avoid. Im just gonna go with what bert said and what hes stuck to: that its not about gerard.

    Bert actually told Kerrang! that this song was not about Gerard. http://www.kerrang.com/blog/2007/05/the_used_i_couldnt_give_less_o.html

    I think he wrote it about when The Used and MCR fell out with each other (this is what I've heard anyway), and I think it's a little childish that he wrote a song just because of the fact that MCR did so well with The Black Parade, and that they weren't friends because he wouldn't get drunk with him anymore.
    Anyway that's just my opinion on what I know.

    I think it is about bert because in the video he gets so messed up everyone kept asking him are you ok???

    Um excuse me but this song is about Gerard Way. They got into a fight because Gerard got clean even though he still smokes he doesn't drink and get drunk and party with him anymore.

    It's about Gerard Way. I forgot where but Bert said exactly that it was about Gerard.

    Amazing song!

    It's about Gerard way and how MCR sold out with the black parade. "Your market value. Your resurrection. Your shallow concept"

    It's NOT about Gerard. Bert only said 'someone with short blond hair' that hardly means "Gerard Way."

    I think it's about himself and the side of himself he doesn't like
    sort of seeing your own dark side and wanting to do something about it but not being able to.

    This song is about Gerard Way and that's it. They (the used) even said it
