The Lyrics

Another obscure OS for the comps. Here's the original Fall Out Boy
Mom’s Basement…We’re Going Down

I am just too emotional now
I’ve been crying all morning
Make-up running down my face
And I’m just such a sissy-boy
Sit on the couch…upset and nauseated
I want to call for my Mommy
But she’s heard my whining too long
(please come rub my tummy…and then sing me a happy song)

“Modest Chair”
“Giant’s Mouse”
We're always naming bands…and gaming
In my Mom’s house

I’m going down, down…hiding under the ground
Mom’s Basement…that’s where I am living
My Dad says “take my finger and pull it”
A gun I should rent…then purchase a bullet

Friends coming down, down…for songwriting we’ve found
Mom’s basement,…the place for emoting
We’ll use each other’s shoulders for weeping
A pile of depression…heaping and steeping

Is this song that we’re writing done yet ?
I just thought of a band name
“Suburban Pigliacci”
Why does my angst addiction bother you ?
Let’s stop this clowning…now it’s time for my confession
I got caught piercing my pimple
My Mom said that I could go blind
(It just seemed so simple…but now I think I’m in a bind)

Stab my eye
With a stick
I’m always acting out…reacting
With the same schtick

We're singin’ bye,bye…we’re emotional guys
Mom’s basement…we’ll never be leaving
We’ll have a fun time when we play Twister
And crank up the jukebox…with Mister Mister

Dad’s asking why, why…can’t you just say good-bye
Mom’s Basement…should have other uses
I think it’s time that you all departed
Remember that couch is where you got started

No, no we’re not planning to go
Mom’s basement…is our little haven
It’s where we keep our funky black glasses
And skin-tight jeans that will ride up our asses

We're really cool, cool…though we’re hated at school
Mom’s basement…is where we’ll be hiding
We’ll wear some beads we got from Bette “Mitler”
And take our black bangs and… style ‘em like Hitler

We're gonna cry,cry
Sigh, sigh
We're wanna die, die
Although we are “chicken”…just like a pullet

We are so new, new…and I feel kinda blue
Mom’s basement…our “cutting edge” project
I think a song named “Crying” will say it
Just then my old Dad says…”here’s Roy…now play it !”

Emo-tastic!!! This really covered all the bases when it comes to the Emo lifestyle (Or wannabe deathstyle)... The only thing that didn't seem all that Emo to me was "We’ll have a fun time when we play Twister And crank up the jukebox…with Mister Mister", because I can't see Emo kids playing Twister, or listening to 80's rock, but everything else was classic emo-age.

Great work here Invisible Boy!!! I loved the line: "And take our black bangs and… style ‘em like Hitler" (And the picture you posted on the forum to go with it!)

(Artistry) Heil IB! Very creatively done, especially forsaking the original ryhme scheme. I was going to do this song, but felt very closed in by the did a lot with them. This will be a top ranker, I think.

(Artistry) I don't really know much about emos, but this was pretty funny, particularly the Hitler line. In short: Wunderbar! Fünf fünf fünf!

VERY clever, VERY well paced. I like the Hitler mention, I saw this as more loser than emo, but hey I'm not picky when it comes to that, it works for btoh and you got me a few good chuckles there. Nice mention of Mister Mr. in there too.
