    The Academy Is...'s music video for 'About A Girl' from their album, Fast Times At Barrington High - available now on DCD2 Records / Fueled By Ramen. Download it at

    LYRICS
    One song about a girl
    Can't breathe when I'm around her
    I wait here every day
    In case she'll scratch the surface
    She'll never notice

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    (WHOA! )

    Last night I knew what to say
    But you weren't there to hear it
    These lines so well rehearsed
    Tongue tied and overloaded
    You never notice

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    I'm not in love
    This is not your song
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    To be loved, to be loved
    What more could you ask for?
    To be loved, to be loved
    Everyone wants
    To be loved, to be loved
    What more could you ask for?
    To be loved, to be loved
    Everyone...

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words...

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    I'm not in love
    This is not your song
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    LYRICS
    My eyes can't believe what they have seen.
    In the corner of your room you've stockpiled millions of my memories.
    Oh Doctor, Doctor, I must have gotten this sick somehow.
    I'm going to ask you a series of questions,
    And I want them answered on the spot, right now.
    Is it serious?
    I'm afraid it is.
    Am I gonna die?
    Well son, death is gonna catch up to all one day,
    But yours is coming quicker than ours, than ours.

    Some things I may have taken for granted again and again,
    well here's what was said then

    Hold your head high heavy heart.
    So take a chance and make it big,
    Cause it's the last you'll ever get.
    If we don't take it, when will we make it?
    I make plans to break plans,
    And I've been planning something big, planning something big, planning.

    I've never tried to make the best of my time,
    When I thought that I had plenty of it.
    Is this serious?
    I don't know what to think.
    Is it all a lie?
    Well one thing is for sure
    I'm taken back to the glory days
    When we were kids without a brash or bitter thing to say.

    Now my life is one big make it, or break it.

    Hold your head high heavy heart
    Save your strength for the morning after.
    So take a chance and make it big,
    Cause it's the last you'll ever get.
    If we don't take it, when will we make it?
    I make plans to break plans,
    And I've been planning something big, planning something big
    So take a chance and make it big,
    Cause it's the last you'll ever get.
    If we don't take it, when will we make it?
    I make plans to break plans,
    And I've been planning something big, planning something big, planning.

    LYRICS
    You were the only face I'd ever known.
    I was the light from the lamp on the floor,
    and only as bright as you wanted me to be.
    But I am no gentleman, I can be a prick,
    and I do regret more than I admit.
    You have been followed back to the same place
    I sat with you drink for drink.
    Take the pain out of love, and then love won't exist.

    Everything we had, everything we had,
    everything we had, everything we had
    Is no longer there.

    It was the only place I'd ever known.
    Turned off the light on my way out the door.
    I will be watching wherever you go,
    through the eyes of a fly on the wall.
    You have been followed back to the same place
    I sat with you drink for drink.
    Take the pain out of love and then love won't exist.

    Everything we had, everything we had,
    everything we had, everything we had
    Is no longer there, longer there.

    Well, you saw for yourself, the way it played out.
    For you, I am blinded.
    For you, I am blinded, for you.

    I am no gentleman, I can be a prick.
    And I do regret more than I admit.
    You have been followed back to the same place
    I sat with you drink for drink.
    Take the pain out of love, and then love won't exist.

    Everything we had, everything we had,
    (you have been followed, you have been followed.)
    everything we had, everything we had.
    (you have been followed, you have been followed.)
    Everything we had, everything we had,
    (you have been followed, you have been followed.)
    everything we had...

    I'll be with you wherever you go,
    through the eyes of a fly on the wall.

    LYRICS
    We're crashing cars we used to share
    With summer girls
    With summer hair
    We're driving around chasing the stars
    But the party's busted up
    Before it ever starts

    I'll never let you go
    Don't ever forget
    Tell me you'll remember
    Forever young
    I'll never let you fall
    It's not over yet
    You and me forever
    Forever young
    We're forever young

    Stop making plans, start making sense
    Don't you believe any word they said
    Sparked up, sparked up like a book of matches
    Falling through the night
    And rising from the ashes

    I'll never let you go
    Don't ever forget
    Tell me you'll remember
    Forever young
    I'll never let you fall
    It's not over yet
    You and me forever
    Forever young
    We're forever young

    Don't come any closer
    Don't tell me it's over
    Don't kiss me goodbye
    Here we are, am i taking this too hard?
    Don't say that it's easy
    The hardest part is leaving
    Don't you wonder why...
    Suddenly, we're all running out of time

    I'll never let you go
    Don't ever forget
    Tell me you'll remember
    Forever young
    I'll never let you fall
    It's not over yet
    You and me forever
    Forever young
    We're forever young
    We're forever young
    We're forever young

    LYRICS
    So there you are, and here I stand,
    As far as I remember you weren't half bad.
    Your bedroom behavior was never more than checkmarks on bedposts.
    For I remember we never had.

    You get me out of the rain, you get me out of my clothes.
    You hope I don't make a sound, you hope that nobody knows.
    You get me out of the rain, you get me out of my clothes.
    You hope I don't make a sound, you hope that no one...

    So suck your so called pity down.
    Hey, that's not so bad, is it?
    So take your cold, cold heart and drown
    and don't forget to take deep breaths.
    So suck your so called pity down.
    Hey, that's not so bad, is it?
    So take your cold, cold heart and drown
    and don't forget to take deep breaths.

    So don't explain cause I know exactly what your going to say.
    Big words, recycled phrases, and the bittersweet taste of other boys on your lips.
    So now just sit here and talk about how you wanted it all.
    So now just sit here and talk about how you wanted it all.

    Do you miss looking up from the floor at my face on a stage in a crowded room?
    Well it's not the same.
    I bet you're still a sucker for those famous faces.
    Downtown, looking down, down, looking over the crowd, I hope you're out there, look at me now.
    Well it's not the same.
    Just look at how we've changed.

    (I Do Not Own This Track)

    Lyrics:

    Close the door and take the stairs.
    Up or down? Ups and downs.
    Don't pretend you've never been there.
    You kiss me like an overdramatic actor who's starving for work,
    with one last shot to make it happen.
    You've won the role, you've played your part, you've been cordially invited.
    But I'm not impressed, and I'm definitely not excited.
    'Cause the film runs a shallow budget, and the writer's subject script isn't any deeper.
    So dive right in...

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
    hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them. I won't buy in.
    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
    hey you, who are you kidding?
    Don't quit 'til 47.
    Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster.

    [Chorus:]
    Take back everything you ever said.
    You never meant a word of it. You never did.
    Take back everything you said.
    You never meant a word of it. You never did.

    She said 'Alright, Alright, slow down!
    Oh no, oh no, we won't.
    'Cause I regret every thing that I said
    To ever make her feel like she was something special,
    Or that she ever really mattered.
    Or did she ever really matter?

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
    hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them. I won't buy in.
    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
    just don't count on this summer.
    Don't quit 'til 47.
    Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster.

    [Chorus]

    I'm not saying that I'm not breaking some hearts tonight, girl.
    Oh...
    I'm not saying that I'm not breaking some hearts tonight, girl.

    Alright, alright, slow down...

    [Chorus]

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
    hey you, who are you kidding?

    (I Do Not Own This Track)

    Lyrics:


    Don't be so scared, we will not lead you on like you've been doing for weeks.
    So you're selfish, and I'm sorry.
    When I'm gone you'll be going nowhere fast
    Nowhere fast, nowhere fast.

    [Chorus:]
    Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you,
    'cause I wouldn't believe you if you said the same to me.
    And near death, last breath, and barely hanging on.
    Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you?

    Don't be so scared to take a second for reflection,
    to take a leave of absence, see what you're made of.
    So I'm selfish, and you're sorry.
    When I'm gone you'll be going nowhere fast.
    So who's selfish, and who's sorry?

    [Chorus]

    Someone, somewhere said some things that may have sparked some sympathy, but don't believe.
    Don't believe a word you've heard about me.

    Don't be so scared. It's harder for me.
    Don't be so scared.
    Don't be so scared, It's harder for me.
    Don't be so scared, It's harder for me.
    Don't be so scared, It's harder for me.
    Don't be so scared.

    [Chorus]

    Someone, somewhere said some things that may have sparked some sympathy, but don't believe.
    Don't believe a word you've heard.

    Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you?
    'Cause I wouldn't believe you
    Wouldn't believe you now

    LYRICS
    I took a step back as the room was filling up
    And I was packed against some people
    Who were tossing up a strong vibe
    Now the door's locked and the shower's on
    And I realize I don't recognize anyone but I don't mind

    Well, the neighbors have complained damn near every night
    The neighbors have complained damn near every night

    You shoulda shown up, shoulda shown up by now
    You shoulda shown up by now
    With a knock at the door
    The knock at the door as it goes
    Whoa, whoa

    Well, now everybody's losing control

    Intoxicated circulation
    Just try to sit back, get my palette wet
    Getting mentally prepared for the consequences
    [Incomprehensible] you know why

    Because that knock at the door calls the crowd to quiet
    The neighbors have complained damn near every night

    You shoulda shown up, shoulda shown up by now
    You shoulda shown up by now
    Give it a rest, give it a rest, give it a rest

    You shoulda shown up, shoulda shown up by now
    You shoulda shown up by now
    With a knock at the door
    The knock at the door as it goes
    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

    There's no one left lying on the second story floorboards
    And I'm sure they heard next door but the bottles are hollow now
    And there's room at the bottom and I would take it back
    If I could, but I won't

    Sit back, get my palette wet
    Getting mentally prepared for the consequences
    [Incomprehensible] you know why

    Because the neighbors have complained damn near every night
    The neighbors have complained damn near every night

    You shoulda shown up, shoulda shown up by now
    You shoulda shown up by now
    Give it a rest, give it a rest, give it a rest

    You shoulda shown up, shoulda shown up by now
    You shoulda shown up by now
    With a knock at the door
    The knock at the door as it goes
    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

    Wake up, think fast, three weeks have passed.
    We are changing. No sleep, no gas, no excuses will pass these lips
    Cause we're shapin' up to be all you wish you could have been
    To write the hits and to turn their heads
    And to open eyes (open your eyes) to a brand new season,
    A brand new season.

    So show me something we haven't heard yet,
    But I'm not convinced and your heartless songs won't stick.
    But I, I'll sing you something you won't forget
    For the first time I know this is now who I am.

    Wake up, think fast, three weeks have passed these lips

    Directed by Jack Edinger

    LYRICS
    It's winter again.
    A white-washed and frozen...sky.
    I came to the door,
    Eyes maladjusted...from the light,
    But your voice rang clear.

    You said, For all I thought I'd ever need,
    It's hard to face the holidays without.
    Well I've left my last message on your machine.
    It's hard to face the holidays
    When you're looking for the words to say.
    When you're looking for the words to say.

    So you've found a friend,
    To spend all your cold nights with him,
    But if I was there
    Then I'd wonder why,
    You still wear my jacket
    Closed with traces of my scent.

    And I said, For all I thought I'd ever need,
    It's hard to face the holidays without.
    Well I've left my last message in your machine.
    It's hard to face the holidays,
    When you're looking for the words to say.

    So stay with me here.
    Nose to nose,
    Cold enough to see as our breath
    Slowly escapes and exchanges...
    From my lungs to yours,
    From your mouth to mine.

    For all I thought I'd ever need,
    It's hard to face the holidays without.
    Well I've left my last message on your machine.
    It's hard to face the holidays
    When you're looking for the words to say
    (stay with me here
    Nose to nose,
    Cold enough to see as our breath)
    When you're looking for the words to say.
    When you're looking for the words to say.
    (stay with me here
    Nose to nose,
    Cold enough to see as our breath)
    When you're looking for the words to say.
    When you're looking for the words to say.

    (I Do Not Own This Track)

    Lyrics:

    Attention! Attention!
    May I have all your eyes and ears to the front of the room,
    if only, if only for one second.

    This table has taken a turn for the worst.
    Rock bottom and over the edge
    well it's not like it hurts that much anyway.
    Upside down and inside out.
    When I leave here I'm going alone.
    Well it's not like, it not like it hurts much anyway.

    Attention! Attention!
    May I have all your eyes and ears to the front of the room,
    if only, if only for one second.
    Will you hear what I have to say?
    Oh, did I mention when I see you it stings like hell?
    To the fact that we could have something that'll never happen.
    Will you hear what I have to?

    This balance has weighed out our heart's desire.
    I'm trying to make it alone.
    Well it's not like it hurts that much anyway.
    Upside down and inside out.
    When I leave here I'm going alone.
    But I'm dying, I'm dying to touch.
    And it's not like, it not like it hurts much anyway.

    Attention! Attention!
    May I have all your eyes and ears to the front of the room,
    if only, if only for one second.
    Will you hear what I have to say?
    Oh, did I mention when I see you it stings like hell?
    To the fact that we could have something, something.

    Attention! Attention!
    May I have all your eyes and ears to the front of the room,
    if only, if only for one second.
    Will you hear what I have to say?
    Oh, did I mention when I see you it stings like hell?
    To the fact that we could have something that'll never happen.
    Will you hear what I have to (say)?

    Attention! Attention!
    Upside down and inside out.
    Attention! Attention!
    Upside down and inside out.

    In 2004 the band headed to Florida to record their Fueled by Ramen debut Almost Here, produced by James Paul Wisner, who has worked with Dashboard Confessional, Something Corporate, Further Seems Forever, and Underoath. After recording the album and doing a summer tour, the band underwent a lineup change. Thomas Conrad, formerly of Chicago local band 5o4plan, replaced LaTrace as the second guitarist/backing vocalist and Andy Mrotek, formerly of Last Place Champs, replaced DelPrincipe as the drummer. Andy Mrotek and Thomas Conrad are listed in the liner notes, but were added to the band after the recording of Almost Here to replace DelPrincipe and LaTrace, respectively. They hit the road hard, touring with Fall Out Boy, Something Corporate, Midtown, Matchbook Romance, Motion City Soundtrack and Armor for Sleep. The album was released on February 8, 2005 and the following summer, the band embarked on their first headlining tour alongside Plain White T's, Days Away and June. On Billboard's charts Almost Here peaked at No. 7 on Top Heatseekers, No. 16 on Independent Albums, and No. 185 on The Billboard 200.[6] Later on in 2005, while Pete Wentz was finishing up work on Fall Out Boy's second album From Under the Cork Tree and his latest side project with John Janick of Fueled by Ramen, he discovered Panic! at the Disco and helped them release their debut album A Fever You Can't Sweat Out through his label Decaydance. The Academy Is... was also signed to Decaydance that year.

    LYRICS
    Like a cold day in August
    I was not prepared for this
    You think that nobody noticed
    The way that you still care about it...

    With all the people we need to love and hate,
    Everybody makes the same mistakes
    Divided by these walls,
    Together we are lost

    We are the same blood
    all of us. we are. we are
    While half of us were lost
    The other half forgot

    We are the same blood
    We are the same blood
    We are the same

    You remind me of August
    The way that I still care about
    All the things that you promised
    When I was still around
    Pick you up and drive you down

    We are the same blood
    all of us. we are. we are
    While half of us were lost
    The other half forgot

    We are the same blood
    We are the same blood
    We are the same blood
    We are the same...

    Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh...

    We are the same blood
    all of us. we are. we are.
    We are the same blood
    all of us. we are. we are.
    We are the same blood

    While half of us were lost
    (Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)
    The other half forgot

    We are the same blood
    We are the same blood
    We are the same blood
    We are the same blood

    Hey hey hey
