That Green Gentleman

promo cover
*This song (5th track on 'Pretty Odd', by PANIC! AT THE DISCO) is aka 'Things Have Changed'.


I just liked the video (below), but this week's 'Green' theme inspired me to pay a bit more attention to the lyrics:

'That Green Gentleman'

Things are shaping up to be pretty odd.
Little deaths in musical beds.
So it seems I'm someone I've never met.

You will only hear these elegant crimes,
Fall on your ears from criminal dimes.
They spill unfound from a pretty mouth.
Everybody gets there and everybody gets their,
and everybody gets their way.
I never said I missed her when everybody kissed her,
Now I'm the only one to blame.
Things have changed for me, and thats okay.
I feel the same, I'm on my way, and I say.
Things have changed for me, and thats okay.


I want to go where everyone goes,
I want to know what everyone knows,
I want to go where everyone feels the same.

I never said I'd leave the city,
I never said I'd leave this town.
A falling out we won't tiptoe about.

{chorus mash-up}

Things have changed for me.


Good fun - P!ATD's '80's style video:
{3 min}

Has he truly come to terms with how things stand?
...or is he just regretful?
...or resentful - but trying to hide it?

Or is the poor guy still 'green-eyed'?...





fyi:
string quartet tribute to the song
also: a 'text' video, w/ full lyrics
