Centuries by Fall Out Boy

Some legends are told

Some turn to dust or to gold

But you will remember me

Remember me for centuries

And just one mistake

Is all it will take

We'll go down in history

Remember me for centuries

Hey-ya, hey, hey-ya

Remember me for centuries

Mummified my teenage dreams

No, it's nothing wrong with me

The kids are all wrong

The story's all off

Heavy metal broke my heart

Come on, come on and let me in

Bruises on your thighs like my fingerprints

And this is supposed to match

The darkness that you felt

I never meant for you to fix yourself

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Some legends are told

Some turn to dust or to gold

But you will remember me

Remember me for centuries

And just one mistake

Is all it will take

We'll go down in history

Remember me for centuries

Hey-ya, hey, hey-ya

Remember me for centuries

And I can't stop 'til the whole world knows my name

Cause I was only born inside my dreams

Until you die for me

As long as there's a light

My shadow's over you

Cause I-I am the opposite of amnesia

And you're a cherry blossom

You're about to bloom

You look so pretty

But you're gone so soon

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Some legends are told

Some turn to dust or to gold

But you will remember me

Remember me for centuries

And just one mistake

Is all it will take

We'll go down in history

Remember me for centuries

Hey-ya, hey, hey-ya

Remember me for centuries

We've been here forever

And here's the frozen proof

I could scream forever

We are the poisoned youth

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Do-do-do-do do-do-do-do

Some legends are told

Some turn to dust or to gold

But you will remember me

Remember me for centuries

And just one mistake

Is all it will take

We'll go down in history

Remember me for centuries

Hey-ya, hey (We'll go down in history) hey-ya

One type of stylistic device used in this song is "we are the poisoned youth" that is an example of a metaphor. It is an example of a metaphor because they are referring to maybe them being sick or something wrong with them and not actually poisoned.

A second example of a stylistic device used in this song is "Heavy metal broke my heart" and that is an example of a hyperbole. They are exaggerating that they don't like heavy metal by saying that it broke their heart when that not possible.

I think they used these types of stylistic devices to connect with people who are listening and get an image of what they are saying.

Jack Frost Poem

Birth is something we all go through

But memories we have none

Why is it that we have no thought?

When life has just begun

From then on in we start to grow

We blossom every way

Our childhood flashes past so quick

Every single day

We grow up fast we fight the world

We struggle through every year

We want to better everyone

We must out do our peers

As age comes fast to everyone

We look back and reflect

We wonder why we fought so hard

When no one gives a heck

And now I sit and see my past

I look at what I’ve done

I have cried some tears and had some pain

But mostly I’ve had fun

So what’s to come what is ahead?

When death creeps ever near

Maybe we will start again

And cry those baby tears

An example of figurative language is our childhood flashes past so quick is an example of a metaphor because your life doesn't actually go by in an instant but it is just saying that it went by fast.

A second esxample of figurative language is and now I sit and see my past is also an example of a metaphor because it isn't possible to actually sit there and see your past but you can sit there and think about it and that is what it is referring to

I think he used those stylistic devices to make it interesting for people to read or listen to instead of just saying how it is.

Another Jack Frost poem "work"

Work is the curse of the working class

The rich just bide their time

Work gives riches to all but me

The rich just get by fine

Work is the cures of the working class

The ratio is not clear

The rich get most of all that’s earnt

The worker just little I fear

The worker is not a happy soul

The rich sit back in glee

And if he gets but half a chance

they’ll take everything from me

If I get rich I would like to think

That wealth I would want to share

But something tells me when you’re rich

You never seem to care

So all I ask is half a chance

To prove that theory wrong

Give me half a million quid

And see how I get along

No’ give me two’ no give me three

Sod it give me four

Just look what happens when you’re rich

You’re always wanting more

So maybe work will keep me down

My feet firm on the floor

I have my wife my health my kids

Who could ask for more.

The worker is not a happy soul is an example of personification because souls can not be happy. He used this to describe the soul with emotion.

The rich sit back in glee is an example of a metaphor because they don't literally sit back and watch everyone else that is struggling. The authors purpose for this one would be to just give another example and give people an image.

Self Written Poem

I sit here today to think about life

There are some good days

There are some bad days

I never know which day it will be

The good days are like sunshine

The bad ones are like a stormy night

You can always turn a bad one into a good one but its not easy

The good ones easily turn into a bad one sometimes without trying

The people around you influence what goes on in your daily life

You always have to enjoy every day that you have like its your last

And try to make others days as best you can

The good days are like sunshine is an example of a simile because it uses like or as. I used it to create an image of what I am trying to say.

The bad ones are like a stormy night is another example of a simile because it uses like or as. I used this one to also create an image for whoever that is going to read this.
