Build God, Then We'll Talk Lyrics - Panic! At The Disco

Review The Song (167)



It's these substandard motels on the (lalalalala) corner of 4th and Fremont Street.
Appealing only because they are just that un-appealing
Any practiced catholic would cross themselves upon entering.
The rooms have a hint of asbestos and maybe just a dash of formaldehyde,
And the habit of decomposing right before your very (lalalala) eyes.

Along with the people inside
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

Tonight tenants range from: a lawyer and a virgin
Accessorizing with a rosary tucked inside her lingerie
She's getting a job at the firm come Monday.
The Mrs. will stay with the cheating attorney
moonlighting aside, she really needs his money.
Oh, wonderful caricature of intimacy.

Yeah (Yeah)

And not to mention, the constable, and his proposition, for that "virgin"
sponsored links
Yes, the one the lawyer met with on "strictly business"
as he said to the Mrs. Well, only hours before,
after he had left, she was fixing her face in a compact.
There was a terrible crash (There was a terrible crash)
Between her and the badge
She spilled her purse and her bag, and held a "purse" of a different kind.

Along with the people inside
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

There are no raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses.
It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses
At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things.

Raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses
It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses
At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things.

Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

Raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses
It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses
At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things.

Raindrops on roses and the girls in white dresses
And sleeping with the roaches and they taking best guesses
At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things.

like the song but it is confusing until i sang it | Reviewer: a fan of PATD | 1/17/13

so the song is about how an actual virgin sleeps with a lawyer in a not so great motel for prostitutes and the wife knows about it but stays with the cheating lawyer because she is like the virgin who needs money and virgin gets the job buts stays with the lawyer i think the wife is cheating on the lawyer with a cop and either the virgin or the wife gets pregnat and lawyer doesn`t care and the lawyer and wife stays with the lawyer but they cheat on each other andthe don`t care if they do nasty things with each other and they call it free marriage or somthing like that

My guess! | Reviewer: Maxine | 11/15/12

In my opinion the song is about a broke virgin who needs not only a job but money too so she agrees to be f**k up by the layers for a job. During this the lawyer is lying and cheating on his wife who only married him for the money. So the virgin and the lawyer do the dirty and the lawyer leaves and the part about a different purse is saying that she is pregnat and the police come to the hotel and find her. (My opinion is that she f**ked up the cop too to get off) an there's a part in the beginning there's a part when they talk about rosary in her lingerie and I think that is connected when the sing "rain drops on roses".
So pretty much this song is a story of a girl that gets f**cked up for money and gets pregnat! Well that's my idea of it. :)

Just my idea | Reviewer: Kimpenny | 1/21/12

I thought the song means tht a lawyer n a virgin hav sex and the wife of the lawyer knows n doesnt care becuz he pays her money 2 shut up or she doesnt care of him just his money then the wife cant take him cheatin so she cheats on him "there was a terrible crash", i think tht means tht lawyer found out and is angry at his wife for doin wat he was doin to his wife thn " raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses is sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses and shades on the sheets and before all the stains and a few more of your least favorites things", which means tears make thm more attractive and innocent girls sleep wit nasty men shades on the sheets and before all the new stains they will create n more disguisting things

the meaning. | Reviewer: Shannon | 1/10/12

Basically, its a sarcastic song. Ha.
It talks about a motel where men go and cheat on their wives at, and is used to a fair deal of scrubbing down. "What a wonderful caricature of intimacy." Is the sarcastic way of saying "Shit display of love." As in, the man doesn't love his wife, and the people who go to the motel do not have love on their minds.

The virgin, so called, is actually a prostitute. "A terrible crash between her and the badge." Means the police. And her "purse of a different kind." Means her "Clients purse." Which is a book filled with client names. Which prostitutes use. A personal opinion is maybe after she had sex with the man. His wife sent the police. Just a personal thought.

Basically the song is about liars and prostitutes and fake love. Enjoy.

my view | Reviewer: ryli velix | 12/15/11

I think the motels are “appealing only cause they're just that unappealing” means they are the only place to go because they are the place no one looks for a rich man and his mistress and “wonderful caricature of intamacy” because a caricature is a picture that exaggerates your worse qualities and this shows intamacys dark side

What I think the lyrics are about | Reviewer: Brandy | 11/12/11

I think that the first verse is describing the place were all this forncation is happening (the motel. "Appealing only because they are just that un-appealing" I mean going with a prostitue is discusting but peopl do it anyway because it feels good.'m not sure about asbestos but if the motel smells like formaldehyd it's form disinfecting all the nastyness that goes on in there.
When it comes to "Along with the people inside
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy" I think he's being a bit sarcastic and sort of saying the people who end up in these hotel rooms end up exposed some how (which I'll explain later) and that wha they do is an example of intamacy (this is where I think he's being sarcastic).
The next 2 verses I think is sort of a backround story. I think what's happening is the lawer is cheating on hs wife with a "virin". If this "virgin" sleeps with him she'll get a job at the firm come Monday. I think that the wife knows he's cheating on her but stays with him anyway. And this is a "wonderful caricature of intimacy"
Now the line I'm unsure about is "she was fixing her face in a compact." is this the "virgin" or the lawyers wife? if it's the wife I think she's also cheating on him, or if it's the "virgin" she fixing her self up for him (or after she slept with him). Either or I think the terriable crash is the exposure I had mentioned before. Either the lawyer found out about all the men the wife cheated on him with,or the the "virgin" isn't really a virgin and that she slept with a bunch of men too. which is why I think the main verse say "Along with the people inside" because they crashed along with the things in her "Purse" of a different kind.
I think that "There are no raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses." means there is no real romance or pure innoscent women but instead
"It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses". Meaning women (and men) are just sleeping with anyone and just guessing they're telling the truth (like the "virgin" lying about bing a virgn.I think "At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things." meansthat along with all the sex stains on the sheets the people are getting STDs (their least favorite things).
So in the end what I think happend is the lawer got an STD for the so called "virgin" or the wife got one from cheatng too, or both.








raindrops on roses | Reviewer: Rebecca | 10/15/11

everyone reviewing this song seems to be coming up with their own ideas about:
"Raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses
It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses
At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things."
and i just thought that i should point out that those lyrics are not entirely made up by panic! at the disco. they are adapted from the lyrics to "My favourite things" from the musical "the Sound of Music". look up the lyrics to that song and you'll see what i mean, they mention "raindrops on roses" and "girls in white dresses" except at the end the lyrics are "these are a few of my favourite things" instead of "and a few more of your least favourite things". Some of you probably already knew this, there just seemed to be some that didn't.

Good song | Reviewer: Cyndi Lion | 9/17/11

I sort of agree with what everyone else is saying about this song. The video doesn't help much in attempting to figure out the meaning, but I guess that's why google invented lyric sites :P. I don't fully get why they are calling the virgin a virgin...

Correction? | Reviewer: mirage | 7/6/11

I think it's really:

Raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses
And sleeping with roaches and taking their chance

Which would mean that even innocent pure women are resorting to desperate measures to earn a living, as opposed to no more innocent pure women, only promiscuosity as implied in the lyrics.

At least, that's what I think it says.

Meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/8/11

PLEASE READ! Ok people, the motel is run down because its the kind of place that condones prostitution but that night is different because the girl is not a prostitute but a good little catholic virgin who is forced to screw her boss (the attorney) because she needs the job at his firm. She needs the job because she desperately needs the money from the job, not prostitution. The lawyers wife has no idea or is blinded by his money that her husband is forcing his employees to have sex with him. He just tells her its "strictly business". After the deed is done the lawyer leaves and she is cleaning herself up when police raid the room, breaking down the door("there was a terrible crash"). She drops her things in shock but she holds a different "purse"(a baby in her womb). "What a wonderful caricature of intimacy" talking about the the conditions of how this poor baby was concieved.

meaninggg | Reviewer: Kiara | 12/25/10

In my opinion, the lyrics mean something like this:
The motel, which would be described as dirty and gross. No matter how gross they are, they're there when you need them (dirty deeds haven haa). So, anybody who is against sin would pray to God the moment they enter. Asbestos is a type of fiber, and it makes things fireproof. (not sure how it pertains though)Formaldehyde is a type of disinfectant and preservative. Since it's made in various plastics that could symbolize the "wonderful caricature of intimacy" *note sarcasm*
So adding the type of people who go in to these motels, he's using dark humor by saying it's a wonderful example of romance or intimacy.
The lawyer and the virgin are pretty straightforward. The girl needed money and a job, he was going to give it to her if she had sex with him. The lawyer's wife knew this was going on, but she needed the money that he was bringing in so she was going to stay with him. So turns out they had a not so wonderful caricature of intimacy as well.
So after the lawyer left, this "virgin" was probably leaving and fixing her makeup and what not in the mirror and ran into the police. Between the two, she dropped her stuff but held the money she received from the lawyer ("purse of a different kind" being the sum of money she received) So instead of bringing her in he said that if she did something unmentionable with him he'd drop the charges. Needless to say, she probably slept with the constable.
"raindrops on roses" in my opinion is legitimate love and the "girls in white dresses" means pure woman. He's saying that instead of that we have disgusting men and the woman who sleep with them. I think it says "chances" instead of "guesses" but i could be wrong, regardless i think it means hoping for the best out of the worst. I also think he says "so tear off the sheets, and before all the stains, add a few more of your least favorite things" though i am probably wrong. However, i think the message is pretty straight forward.
I could be totally off base here, but it's just my opinion. I've loved PATD for years, it's a shame they broke up. I wish Ryan's lyrics stayed as theatrical and symbolic as he made them in "a fever you can't sweat out". Pure poetry,stuff like that is hard to find these days ): However, they've always been my heroes, and probably always will. (:

A different version of the story | Reviewer: Matthew | 12/6/10

Well the first lines are obvious: shistey motels in Vegas (the sin city, which can easily be derived from 4th and Freemont) hide dirty deeds. Boom intro.

Now, the lawyer meets an innocent virgin girl that's poor and needs a job. She'll get a job if she jumps on his junk, which happens in the hotel room. This is lewd bribery and pretty illegal I'm sure. He tells his wife its "business" but she's not dumb, just in need of his bank, so she stays with him.

Meanwhile some oinker (cop, police, constable, etc.) finds out about this business. I don't know if he gets with the virgin or the wife, but he definitely puts his dilly in one of 'em. AND i have no idea where anybody is getting prostitution or blowies from considering they weren't even relatively mentioned in the lyrics. But OOOPS somebody forgot their rubbers and now she has a baby on board. IE "a purse of a different kind" purse=womb o0o0o0o0o0o0o0hhhhh snap

The final lines are easy too, its not a pretty picture, but an ugly one filled with disgusting images and doubt. Boom outro.

A wonderful caricature of intimacy. (if you honestly need help with this line [after a dictionary and a common sense course] there's a secret potion that helps... mix ammonia with bleach and breath heavily right above the mixture. Oh, and you have to yell "Dar win? NO! I win!")

Just wanted to say... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/10

This is one of my favorite songs. And I completely agree with Brittany about A Fever You Can't Sweat Out; the next album really disappointed me, as their music seems to have lost its content. I get that Ryan Ross wants to write "lighter" songs that are just about enjoying it. That's his choice, but I was really hoping he would go back to his old style, even if in a different band, since he was the best songwriter ever.

Who cares? | Reviewer: Anon. | 8/27/10

What it's exactly about? It's a damn good song and we should all enjoy it. People are entitled to their own opinions.

This is a really great song, even though the lyrics aren't really "appropriate". :P

Just wanted to let y'all know | Reviewer: Erin | 8/10/10

Okay, so real fast I know for a fact that when the song is talking about a purse of a different kind it is referring to a whore's purse, which was mentioned earlier. Anyway, o just wanted to let y'all know that. :)
