I Constantly Thank God for Esteban
Panic! at the Disco Lyrics


Give us this day our daily dose of faux affliction
Forgive our sins forged at the pulpit
With forked tongues selling faux sermons
Because I am a new wave gospel sharp
And you'll be thy witness
So gentlemen, if you're gonna preach
For God sakes preach with conviction

Strike up the band
Oh, the conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, and let's sing it like you mean it
No, don't you get it, don't you get it, now
Don't you move

Strike up the band
Oh, the conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, and let's sing it like you mean it
No, don't you get it, don't you get it now
Don't you move

Just stay where I can see you
Douse the lights

We sure are in for a show tonight

In this little number we are graced by two displays of character
We've got the gunslinger extraordinaire
Walking contradiction
And I for one can see no blood from the hearts
And the wrists you allegedly slit
And I for one won't stand for this
If this scene were a parish you'd all be condemned

Strike up the band
Oh, the conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, and let's sing it like you mean it
No, don't you get it, don't you get it now
Don't you move

Strike up the band
Oh, the conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, and let's sing it like you mean it
No, don't you get it, don't you get it?
Don't you, don't you move

Just stay where I can see you
Douse the lights
We sure are in for a show tonight
Just stay where I can see you
Douse the lights
We sure are in for a show tonight
Stay where I can see you
Douse the lights

Strike up the band
Oh, the conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, and let's sing it like you mean it
No, don't you get it, don't you get it now
Don't you move

Strike up the band
Oh, the conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, and let's sing it like you mean it
No, don't you get it, don't you get it now
Don't you move
Don't you move
Don't you move
Strike up the band

Mike Matei Inspector Gadget

The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage - a quote from the Chuck Palahniuk novel Survivor

London Beckoned Songs About Money Written by Machines - quote from the Douglas Coupland novel Shampoo Planet

Nails for Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks - apparently a saying Ryan’s dad would tell him to toughen him up (the song is also about Ryan’s pops)

Camisado - the name of a surprise military operation that takes place at night or daybreak

Time to Dance - not an explicit reference but the lyrics are based entirely off the novel Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahnuik

Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off - quote from the movie Closer

But It’s Better If You Do - also a direct quote from Closer. I think the full line is ‘Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off, but it’s better if you do”

I Write Sins Not Tragedies - another quote from Shampoo Planet by Douglas Coupland

I Constantly Thank God for Esteban - reference to an infomercial that would frequently play advertising Esteban guitars and lessons, by the musician Esteban

There’s a good reason these tables aren’t numbered - Ryan said once that the title was actually a lyric from a song that was cut from the album

Build God, Then We’ll Talk - no one actually seems to know where this came from. People say it’s a quote from Choke by Chuck Palahniuk but apparently that’s wrong. Who knows



mama we all go to hell :p

Lyrics
Give us this day our daily dose of faux afflictions
And forgive our sins
Forged at the pulpit
With forked tounges selling faux sermons
Cause I am a new wave gospel sharp and you'll be thy witness
So gentlemen if you're gonna preach
For god sakes preach with conviction
Strike up the band woah oh
The conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, let's sing it like you mean it, no
Dont you get it, dont you get it, now dont you move
Strike up the band woah oh
The conductor is beckoning
Come, congregation, let's sing it like you mean it, no
Dont you get it, dont you get it, now dont you move
Just stay where I can see you
Douse the lights

In this little number we are graced by two displays of character
We got the gunslinger extrodinar
Walking contradictions
I for one can see no blood
From the hearts and the wrists you allegedly slit
And I for one won't stand for this
If the scene were a parish
Youd all be condemned
Strike up the band woah oh

Do they just name these titles so they can laugh when we struggle? WHY ARE THE TABLES NUMBERED? WHO IS ESTEBAN? WHY IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARTYRDOM AND SUICIDE?

Mike Matei Inspector Gadget

The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage - a quote from the Chuck Palahniuk novel Survivor

London Beckoned Songs About Money Written by Machines - quote from the Douglas Coupland novel Shampoo Planet

Nails for Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks - apparently a saying Ryan’s dad would tell him to toughen him up (the song is also about Ryan’s pops)

Camisado - the name of a surprise military operation that takes place at night or daybreak

Time to Dance - not an explicit reference but the lyrics are based entirely off the novel Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahnuik

I Constantly Thank God for Esteban - reference to an infomercial that would frequently play advertising Esteban guitars and lessons, by the musician Esteban

A lot of the titles are actually quotes from Chuck Palahniuk book.

Kazokadas

I almost flipped when people were like who is Esteban? It’s just the name of a guitar. Of, that hurts.

Right? I can't believe how much mileage I got out of this album, and still get! It's wild. How were they not more popular? Maybe they were and I never really paid attention? Why didn't they blow up like Paramore?
