Immortals
Fall Out Boy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

They say we are what we are
But we don't have to be
On bad behavior, but I do it in the best way
I'll be the watcher (watcher) of the eternal flame
I'll be the guard dog of all your fever dreams

(Ooh)
I am the sand in the bottom half of the hourglass (glass, glass)
(Ooh)
I try to picture me without you but I can't

'Cause we could be immortals, immortals
Just not for long, for long
And live with me forever now
Pull the blackout curtains down
Just not for long, for long
We could be immor-immortals
Immor-immortals
Immor-immortals
Immor-immortals

Sometimes the only pay off for having any faith
Is when it's tested again and again everyday
I'm still comparing your past to my future
It might be your wound but they're my sutures

(Ooh)
I am the sand in the bottom half of the hourglass (glass, glass)
(Ooh)
I try to picture me without you, but I can't

'Cause we could be immortals, immortals
Just not for long, for long
And live with me forever now
Pull the blackout curtains down
Just not for long, for long
We could be immor-immortals
Immor-immortals

(Immortals)
And live with me forever now
Pull the blackout curtains down

We could be immortals, immortals
Just not for long, for long
We could be immor-immortals
Immor-immortals
Immor-immortals
Immor-immortals
(Immortals)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Fall Out Boy's song "Immortals" are quite thought-provoking and meaningful. At first, the song talks about the idea of being what we are, but also the possibility of not having to be, of striving for something better but doing it in the best way possible. The singer then portrays himself as the watcher of the eternal flame and the guard dog of all your fever dreams, which is a metaphor for protecting someone's hopes and desires. The chorus then talks about the possibility of living forever and being immortals, but only for a short while. The lyrics suggest that while we may not be able to live forever, we can still make the most of the time we have with those we love.


The song then delves into the idea of the payoff for faith only coming through testing, and how the singer is still comparing someone's past to his future. He refers to it as his sutures, implying that he is willing to take on someone else's pain as long as they are together. The chorus is repeated with the same message of living forever, but only for a short time. The song ends with a repetition of the chorus, emphasizing the message of making the most of the time we have with those we love.
