Panic at the Disco - Say Amen

Been traveling in packs that I can't carry anymore
Waiting for somebody else to carry me
There's nothing that's left for me at my door
All the people I knew aren't who they used to be
And if I try to change my life for one day
There would be nobody else to save
And I can't change into a person I don't wanna be
So, oh, it's Saturday night

I pray for the wicked on the weekend
Mama, can I get another amen?
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night
Swear to God, I ain't ever gonna repent
Mama, can I get another amen?
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah

Every morning when I wake up
I wanna be who I couldn't say I've ever been
But it's so much more than I ever was
If every night I go to sleep knowing
That I gave everything that I had to give
Then it's all I could've ask for
I've been standing up aside everything I've ever said, but
Oh, it's Saturday night

I pray for the wicked on the weekend
Mama, can I get another amen?
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night
Swear to God, I ain't ever gonna repent
Mama, can I get another amen?
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah

If I had one more day to wish
If I had one more day to be better than I could have ever been
If I had one more day to wish
If I had one more day I could be better, but, baby
Oh, it's Saturday night

I pray for the wicked on the weekend
Mama, can I get another amen?
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night
Swear to God, I ain't ever gonna repent
Mama, can I get another amen?
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah
It's Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah
Swear to God, swear to God, swear to God
Oh, oh, it's Saturday night, yeah

Interpretation of Say Amen

The religious title is deceptive, because actually Say Amen is about the transition to a new lifestyle. For the narrator, the tradition in which he grew up no longer feels good and right. Also the people in his environment have changed. He does not want to become a person he does not like. Therefore, he gives up earlier traditions and continues to evolve.

Religious rhetoric is confronted with a secular reality, following the tradition of Saturday night. While Saturday night is not explicitly described, the connotations of that word are party, drinking, exuberance. His new mantra of faith is that as long as he is able to "sleep knowing that I gave everything that I had to give" then it really is "all I could've ask for". These values are more important for him.
