Song

The song was relesed on May 4, 2006 and was written by Ryan Ross as a CD single. It was the third single to be relesed, and the second to be relesed with a music video.The concept of the song is "about being in a strip club but not actually liking being in there. So I wanted it to be about the sort of complex inner-monolog

Images-1

the theme in the video is a mascarade style strip club in which the band is preforming in

ue," he said. "It's not completely fiction, though. It's based on a scenario when I was going through a breakup with a girl. Because in reality, I don't like strip clubs. I think they're kinda perverted," says Ryan Ross. Ryan also said "

When I wrote it, I never thought about it being played in strip clubs. But I guess it would be kind of a change from what they usually play in there," he also stated "It would be a surreal experience, for sure. I think the tempo is too fast, though. So maybe someone would have to do a Chopped and screwed version or something." The title was quoted from the movie "Closer " in which the character portrayed by Natalie portman says:Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off... but it's better if you do". Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off which is also the name of a Panic! At The Disco song.

Lyrics

Now I'm of consenting age to be forgetting you in a cabaret.


Somewhere downtown where a burlesque queen may even ask my name


As she sheds her skin on stage


I'm seated and sweating to a dance song on the club's P.A.


The strip joint veteran sits two away


Smirking between dignified sips of his dignified peach and lime daiquiri


And isn't this exactly where you'd like me


I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know


Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety


Oh, isn't this exactly where you'd like me


I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know


Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety


But, but I'm afraid that I


Well, I may have faked it


And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place


Well, I'm afraid that I


Well, that's right, well I may have faked it


And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place


And isn't this exactly where you'd like me


I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know


Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety


Oh, isn't this exactly where you'd like me


I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know


Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety


Well, I'm afraid that I


Well, I may have faked it


And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place

Well, I'm afraid that I


Well, that's right, well I may have faked it


And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place


And isn't this exactly where you'd like me


I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know


Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety


Oh, isn't this exactly where you'd like me


I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know


Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety


Praying for love and paying in naivety


Praying for love and paying in naivety, oh
