*Hears the beginning of I Write Sins Not Tragedies* … *Jumps down stairs* *Crashes into room* OH. *Punches lamp* WELL IMAGINE *Kicks through window* AS IM PACING THE PEWS *Flips couch over* IN A CHURCH CORRIDOR *Throws coffee table out window* AND I CANT HELP BUT TO HEAR *Kicks wall* NO I CANT HELP BUT TO HEAR AN EXCHANGING OF WORDS *Grabs you by the shirt collar* WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING
I’ve been using Panic! At The Disco as a creative catalyst for over 10 years now. That fact seems so bizarre and yet so fitting. It’s such a part of me that I can’t picture what my life would’ve been like without this amazing journey so far.
Making “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out” was the album of “firsts” for me. First time I played a real part in a band. First time I lived away from home for longer than a few days. First time in a recording studio. First time writing and recording a full album. First time being the singer of a band.
Even after 10 years, it doesn’t seem so far away. The memories I associate with that time don’t seem so distant. I remember the bed I slept in. The smell of the instruments in the studio. The anxiety that nearly incapacitated me throughout the recording process. The hole in the apartment wall about the size of my foot.
Thinking of it all, I just want to say thank you. Thank you all for letting me do what I do. For letting me take you on this weird, wild trip with me. And so here’s to you and to 10 years of a fever I may never be able to sweat out. And I hope I never do.

I spent quite some time perfecting this, but here is two famous P!ATD songs strung together and remastered to have a fuller sound and just be smoother in general. The transition between the two songs is superb too. Enjoy guys!
(Further apologies, I had to compress this a bit more than i wanted to to get it to fit into the Tumblr audio player. You can download the full, uncompressed MP3 here! Enjoy!)
whisper babe..i’m as good as it gets in this town. whisper babe..i’m a fever you can’t sweat out. these are my deepest thoughts and secrets under a microscope or under a spotlight. forgive me if i’m not quite ready to give them to you. it’s just such a different feeling..when i see you smiling and singing back to me, i’m still playing different pictures in my head that aren’t so pleasant. i’m doing my best now to live in the song and not just the meaning
