Soul Punk hidden message

Certain letters in the lyrics of the the album booklet were highlighted a different color, spelling out a hidden message in Patrick Stump’s Soul Punk album. This is what it says:

Fear is killing us. - Explode

But true love can survive. - This City

If we cooperate. - Dance Miserable

We can beat doubt. - Spotlight

But first rebuild trust. - The “I” in Lie

Take responsibility. - Run Dry

Happiness is still free. - Greed

Though not always apparent. - Everybody Wants Somebody

When it’s right in front of us. - Allie

So keep calm. It’s gonna get better. - Coast


I’d been trying to write something, kind of social commentary, about the totally different experiences you can have in the same land mass, you know. There are a lot of songs about being from a city specifically, but there’s not a lot of songs about being from, in or around a city. Just that general shared culture that we share with pretty much most of the world.
