" The Phoenix"
Fall Out Boy

Simile
Hey young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out?
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing our vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Idiom
Simile
Personification
This song serve as a warning to the younger generation that were given chance of rock and roll. Now that Fall Out Boy is back, they're going to take back the rock and roll world and show the younger artists how it's done.
Allusion
Personification
"So we can take the world back from a heart attack
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance along to the beat of your heart"

Idiom
"You are a brick tied to me that's dragging me down
Strike a match and I'll burn you to the ground
We are the jack-o'-lanterns in July
Setting fire to the sky
"

The two idioms serve as a warning to the "brick"(younger generation) that if he/she start any problems, they'll be burnt.
They're tired of new bands giving rock and roll a bad name, so they're burning old bridges and "showing those bands how it's done."
The first metaphor is addressing someone holding him back like an anchor, dragging him down.
Not sure what the second metaphor stand for.
The personification in this part of the song represent time being pass as people do nothing as they wait for the song to start.
The two similes serves as the artist's way of saying "let us show you how to make songs with real meaning and be a REAL rock musician, then it's up to you to rise up."
The first allusion convey that everyone thought FOB was in the past and newer bands would've taken their place, but this is their way of saying "nope, back off; we're just getting started."
Hey young blood, doesn't it feel like our time is running out?
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing our vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
The second allusion is them saying "no one can do 'rock&roll' better than us".
