Release date: 25 September 2009
Third album maturity amounts to the anger being turned up, and effectively so
You can see it in the pointed use of lower case lettering in the album title on the artwork, in the cruelly dismembered and mounted butterfly on the cover and in the tormented song titles – ‘Turn It Off’, ‘Ignorance’, ‘Playing God’. Paramore have not only grown up, but grown into a cynical bunch. Despite being largely invisible to the ‘serious’ music fan in your life,...

Think of me when you're out, when you're out there
I'll beg you nice from my knees
And when the world treats you way too fairly
Well, it's a shame I'm a dream
I can't make my own decisions
Or make any with precision
Well, maybe you should tie me up
So I don't go where you don't want me
When I was younger, I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart and I watched
As he tried to reassemble it
We still live in the same town, well, don't we?
But I don't see you around anymore
I go to all the same places, not even a trace of you
Your days are numbered at 24
1, 2, 3, 4
I'm going away for a while
But I'll be back, don't try and follow me
I scraped my knees when I was praying
And found a demon in my safest haven, seems like
It's getting harder to believe in anything
Than just to get lost in all my selfish thoughts
If I'm a bad person, you don't like me
Well, I guess I'll make my own way
It's a circle, a mean cycle
I can't excite you anymore
I settle down a twisted up frown
Disguised as a smile, well, you would have never known
I had it all, but not what I wanted
'Cause hope for me was a place uncharted and overgrown
Give me attention, I need it now
Too much distance to measure it out, out loud
Tracing patterns across a personal map
And making pictures where the lines overlap
Things are looking up, oh, finally
I thought I'd never see the day when you smile at me
We always pull through, oh, when we try
I'm always wrong but you're never right
Well, she lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind
