Panic At The Disco Write Sins Not Tragedies

Panic! At The Disco, up and coming Las Vegas band, are in the running for a number of awards for their music video made for “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”. The music video for “I Write The Sins Not The Tragedies” begins with a close up of a table in a wedding chapel, presumably in Las Vegas. A clergyman holds a Bible and faces a bride and groom. The couple exchange vows of love while a young member of the congregation whispers to a friend that the bride is a whore. The door opens, letting in the tophat-wearing lead singer and a number of actors with painted faces. “Haven’t you ever heard of closing the door?” The wedding guests and visitors break into dance while the couple argue. The bride storms out. The lead singer takes the groom through the door, to reveal her embracing one of the painted men. Caught red-lipped!

Lyrics for I Write The Sins Not Tragedies

Oh, well imagine; as I’m pacing the pews in a church corridor,
and I can’t help but to hear, no I can’t help but to hear an exchanging of words.
“What a beautiful wedding!, What a beautiful wedding!”
says a bridesmaid to the waiter.
“Ah yes, but what a shame, what a shame,
the poor groom’s bride is a whore.”

I’d chime in with a “Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the god damn door?!”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I’d chime in “Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the god damn door?!”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of hope.

Well in fact, well I’ll look at it this way,
I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for, a toast so, pour the champagne
Oh! Well in fact, well I’ll look at it this way,
I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne, pour the champagne.

I’d chime in with a “Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the god damn door?!”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I’d chime in “Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the god damn door?!”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
