Nails For Breakfast, Tacks For Snacks Lyrics - Panic! At The Disco

Review The Song (21)



Watch your mouth
Your speech is slurred enough
That you might swallow your tongue
You'd want to give up the ghost
With just a little more poise than that

Or was it God who chokes
In these situations, running late?
No, no, he called in, he called in...

The hospice is
A relaxing weekend getaway
Where you're a cut above all the rest
Sick and sad patients
On first name basis with all the top physicians

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
sponsored links
You know you should take
It a day at a time

That's when you stutter something profound
To the support on the line
And with the way you've been talking
Every word gets you a step closer to hell

No I just can't help it
To say what everyone else is thinking
Let me state the obvious again..

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should take
It a day at a time

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should take
It a day at a time

I am
Alone in this bed, house, and head
And she never fixes this
But at least she...

I am
Alone, in this bed
She never fixes this
But at least she
Makes me forget

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should take
It a day at a time

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should take
It a day at a time

this song is tits | Reviewer: baka | 1/5/10

though i dont much care for the album version i love this song. they should have kept the original though. It seems like this also suggests his dad or whoever this song might be referring to, if it is reffering to anyone, likes them some heroine too. Note the phrase "the shakes" which is a common slang term for heroine withdraws. Methadone, opana, and many other opiates are "prescribed" to fight these so called shakes.



Ah, Panic at the Disco... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/28/09

I really love Panic at the Disco. Their songs tell stories. But they aren't stories that most people know about, things that happen that people aren't completely aware of.
It takes skill to write such great lyrics :P

this song is sooo amazing. its my 3rd favorite PATD song. its especially reaaaaally pretty when brendan (♥) sings: i am alone in this bed, house, and head. i no ryan is amazing for writing the most genius, clever, amazing lyrics ever but im already way too much in love with brendan, and his beautiful singing voice. PATD forever!!

i love panic at the disco. i think its really cool how theres a story behind their songs. like how this one is about his alcoholic dad. ryan ross is a lyrical genius. love him. & brendon. & spencer& jon. u know what i love this whole freaking band!!!



Ryan Ross Writes Amazing Songs | Reviewer: Mikayla? | 1/19/08

I love how everyone of P!ATD's songs has a meaning behind them. Like how this one is about Ryan Ross' alchoholic dad and how 'Lying Is the Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off' is about how his ex-girlfriend cheated on him. I wish everyone's songs had stories, but that's what makes Panic! unique. An amazing song.
