Panic! At The Disco Build God, Then We'll Talk OFFICIAL VIDEO

The song's official music video.

The video director is unknown, however it is rumoured to be Andy Soup. The music video depicts the story of a "pornomime" and a girl who falls in love with after seeing one of his performances. Their relationship is a mimed one. Both "relationships" encompass a false feeling of intimacy and are essentially devoid of meaning.

The mime and his girlfriend both walk in on each other having affairs (mimed, of course), again symbolizing the emptiness of their mimed relationships. They are not having sex with real people—it is an illusion. The video is the first from the band to be web-exclusive, mostly because they felt it was too vulgar for television, but it aired on MTV2 in the UK and on A1 in Russia anyways. It was available on Music Choice On-Demand as well.

The band does not appear in this video. Ryan Ross has stated that he was annoyed that the video didn't get MTV airplay.

There have been several interpretations of this video, including references to a bad relationship by band member Brendon Urie.

Lyrics

It's these substandard motels on the (lalalalala) corner of 4th and Fremont Street

Appealing only because they are just that un-appealing

Any practiced catholic would cross themselves upon entering

The rooms have a hint of asbestos and maybe just a dash of formaldehyde,

And the habit of decomposing right before your very (lalalala) eyes.


Along with the people inside

What a wonderful caricature of intimacy

Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy


Tonight tenants range from: a lawyer and a virgin

Accessorizing with a rosary tucked inside her lingerie

She's getting a job at the firm come Monday

The Mrs. will stay with the cheating attorney moonlighting aside, she really needs his money

Oh, wonderful caricature of intimacy.


Yeah (Yeah)


And not to mention, the constable, and his proposition, for that "virgin"

Yes, the one the lawyer met with on "strictly business"

as he said to the Mrs.

Well, only hours before,

after he had left, she was fixing her face in a compact.

There was a terrible crash

(There was a terrible crash)

Between her and the badge

She spilled her purse and her bag, and held a "purse" of a different kind.


Along with the people inside

What a wonderful caricature of intimacy

Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy


There are no raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses

It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses

At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains

And a few more of your least favorite things


Raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses

It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses

At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains

And a few more of your least favorite things


Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy


Raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses

It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses

At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains

And a few more of your least favorite things


Raindrops on roses and the girls in white dresses

And sleeping with the roaches and taking best guesses

At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains

And a few more of your least favorite things
