Helena
~HELENA~

Long ago
Just like the hearse you died to get in again
We are so far from you

Burning on,
just like a match you strike to incinerate
The lives of everyone you knew
And whats the worst to take,
from every heart you break (heart you break)
And like a blade you stain
Well I've been holding on tonight

Whats the worst that I could say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Came a time
When every star fall brought you to tears again
We are the very hurt you sold
And whats the worst you take, from every heart you break
And like a blade you stain
Well I've been holding on tonight

Whats the worst that I could say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

And if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Can you hear me?
Are you near me?
Can we pretend?
to leave again?
We'll meet again,
when both our cars collide

Whats the worst that I could say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

And if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnightback to top
Give 'Em Hell Kid
Oh baby here comes the sound!
I took a train outta New Orleans and they shot me full of ephedrine.
This is how we like to do it in the murder scene.
Can we settle up the score?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear.
So go on live your life.
But I miss you more than I did yesterday.

You're beautiful

Well I'm a total wreck and almost every day.
Like the firing squad or the mess you made.
Well don't I look pretty walking down the street.
In the best damn dress I own?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear.
So go on live your life.
But I miss you more than I did yesterday.
You're so far away.
So c'mon show me how.
'Cause I mean this more than words can ever say.

Some might say we are made from the sharpest things you say
We are young and we don't care.
Your dreams and your hopeless hair.
We never wanted it to be this way.
For all our lives.
Do you care at all?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear.
So go on live your life.
But I miss you more than I did yesterday.
You're so far away.
So c'mon show me how.
'Cause I mean this more than words can ever say.

To the End
Artist/Band – My Chemical Romance
Album – Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Song – To The End

He calls the mansion not a house but a tomb,
He’s always choking from the stench and the fume,
The wedding party all collapsed in the room,
So send my resignation to the bride and the groom, Let’s go down,
This elevator only goes up to ten,
He’s not around he’s always looking at men,
Down by the pool he doesn’t have many friends,
As they are face down and bloated snap a shot with the lens,

Pre-Chorus:
If you marry me,
Would you bury me?,
Would you carry me to the end?,

Chorus:
(Say goodbye), To the vows you take,
(Say goodbye), To the life you make,
(Say goodbye), To the heart you break,
And all the cyanide you drank,

Woah ho, [x4]

She keeps a picture of the body she lends,
Got nasty blisters from the money she spends,
She got a life of her own and it shows,
By the Benz she drives at 90 by the Barbies and Kens,
If you ever say never too late,
I’ll forget all the diamonds you ate,
Lost in coma and covered in cake,
Increase the medication, share the vows at the wake,

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

(So say goodbye), To the last parade,
(And walk away), From the choice you make,
(Say goodbye), To the heart you break,
And all the cyanide you drank,

Woah oh, [x8]
Woah ho, [x8]

(Chorus)

(So say goodbye), To the last parade,
(And walk away), From the choice you make,
(And say goodbye), To the heart you break,
And all the cyanide you drank,

(Kiss…), To the last parade,
(The…), As the parties fade,
(Bride…), And the choice you make,

To the end…

You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison
Here is a little something because I havn't done much in a while, Enjoy..

In the middle of a gun fight...
In the center of a restaurant...
They say, "Come with your arms raised high!"
Well, they're never gonna get me,
And like a bullet through a flock of doves...
To wage this war against your faith in me,
Your life...will never be the same.
On your mother's eyes, say a prayer...say a prayer!

Now, but I can't
And I don't know
How we're just two men as God had made us,
Well, I can't...well, I can!
Too much, too late, or just not enough of this
Pain in my heart for your dying wish,
I'll kiss your lips again.

They all cheat at cards and the checkers are lost,
My cellmate's a killer, they made me do push-ups (in drag)
But nobody cares if you're losing yourself...am I losing myself?!
Well, I miss my mom,
Will they give me the chair,
Or lethal injection, or swing from a rope if you dare;
Ah, nobody knows...all the trouble I've seen!

Now, but I can't
And I don't know
How we're just two men as God had made us,
Well, I can't...well, I can!
Too much, too late, or just not enough of this
Pain in my heart for your dying wish,
I'll kiss your lips again.

To your room...
What they ask of you
Will make you want to say, "So long..."
Well, I don't remember,
Why remember...YOU?!

Do you have the keys to the hotel?!
Cause' I'm gonna string this motherfucker on fire! (FIRE!!)

Life is but a dream for the dead,
And well I, I won't go down by myself,
But I'll go down with my friends.
Now now now now...now now now...now now now!!back to top
I'm Not Okay (I Promise)
My Chemical Romance - i'm not okay (i promise)




I'm Not Okay (I Promise)

Well if you wanted honesty that's all you had to say.
I never want to let you down or have you go
it's better off this way.
For all the dirty looks, for photographs your boyfriend took.
Remember when you broke your foot from jumping out the scond floor?

I'm not okay. I'm not, okay. I'm not okay, you wear me out.

What will it take to show you that it's not the life it seems?
(I'm not okay) I told you time and time again you sing the words (I'm not okay),
but don't know what it means to be a joke and look another line without a hook.
I held you close as we both shook.
For the last time, take a good hard look.

I'm not okay. I'm not, okay. I'm not okay, you wear me out.

Forget about the dirty looks, the photographs your boyfriend took.
You said you read me like a book, well the pages all are torn and frayed out.

I'm okay, I'm o-kay.
I' m okay now (I'm okay now).
But you really didn't listen to me because I'm telling you the truth,
I mean this I'm okay- trust me.
I'm not okay. I'm not okay.
Well, I'm not okay, I'm not o' f'ing kay.
I'm not okay. I'm not okay (okay).back to top
The Ghost of You
I never said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died we'd be together
I can't always just forget her
But she could try

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever ever...

Ever...
Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me

If I fall…
If I fall…
(Down)

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Never coming home
Never coming home
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna...back to top
The Jetset Life Is Gonna Kill You
Artist/Band – My Chemical Romance
Album – Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Song – The Jetset Life Is Gonna Kill You

Gaze into her killing jar I’d sometimes stare for hours,
(Sometimes stare for hours),
She even poked the holes so I can breathe,
She brought the last line, I’m just the worst kind,
Of guy to argue with what you might find,
And for the last night I lie,
Could I lie with you?,

Alright… give up… get down,
The hardest part of living,
Alright… she wants… it all,
To come down this time,

Lost in the prescription she’s got something else in mind,
(Something else in mind),
Check into the hotel Bella Muerte,
It gives the weak flight, it gives the blind sight,
Until the cops come or by the last light,
And for the last night I lie?,
Could I lie next to you?,

[x2]
Alright… give up… get down,
The hardest part of living,
Alright… she wants… it all,
To come down this time,

Pull the plug,
But I’d like to learn your name,
And holding on,
Well I hope you do the same,
Awww sugar,
Slip into the tragedy,
You’ve spun this chamber dry,

[x2]
Alright… give up… get down,
The hardest part of living,
Alright… she wants… it all,
To come down this time,

Pull the plug,
But I’d like to learn your name,
And holding on,
Well I hope you do the same,

Sister…,
I’m not much a poet but a criminal,
And you never had a chance,
Love it or leave it, you can’t understand,
A pretty face but you do so carry (on and on and on),
I wouldn’t front the scene if you paid me,
I’m just the way that the doctor made me,
(On and on and on and on),
Love is the red, the rose on your coffin door,
What’s life like bleeding on the floor?,
(The floor, the floor),

You’ll never make me leave,
I wear this on my sleeve,
Give me a reason to believe,

Chorus:
So gimme all your poison,
And gimme all your pills,
And gimme all your hopeless hearts and make me ill,
You’re running after something that you’ll never kill,
If this is what you want then fire at will,

Preach all you want but who’s gonna save me?,
I keep a gun on the book you gave me,
(Hallelujah, lock and load,)
Black is the kiss, the touch of the serpent son,
It ain’t the mark or the scar that makes you one,
(The one, the one, the one),

You’ll never make me leave,
I wear this on my sleeve,
Give me a reason to believe,

(Chorus)

(Guitar Solo)

You’ll never make me leave,
I wear this on my sleeve,
You wanna follow somethin’?,
Give me a better cause to leave,
Just give me what I need,
Give me a reason to believe,

(Chorus)

So gimme all your poison, (Fire at will),
And gimme all your pills, (Fire at will),
And gimme all your hopeless hearts and make me ill, (Fire at will),
You’re running after something that you’ll never kill, (Fire at will),
If this is what you want then fire at will,

Hang 'Em High
Artist/Band – My Chemical Romance
Album – Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Song – Hang ‘Em High

Wait until it fades to black,
Ride into the sunset,
Would I lie to you?,
Well I’ve got somethin’ to say,
Grab your six-gun from your back,
Throttle the ignition,
Would I die for you?,
Well here’s your answer in spades,

Shotgun sinners,
Wild eye jokers,
Got you in my sights,
Gun it while I’m holding on,

After all is said and done,
Climb out from the pine box,
Well I’m asking you,
‘Cause she’s got nothin’ to say,
The angels just cut out her tongue,
Call her ‘Black Mariah’,
Would I lie to you?,
That girl’s not right in the brain,

Mass convulsions,
Strike the choir,
By the grace of god,
Gun it while I’m holding on,

But don’t stop,
If I fall,
And don’t look back,
Oh baby,
Don’t stop, bury me,
And fade to black,

[x3]
She won’t stop me, put it down, [x3]
So get your gun and meet me by the door,

She won’t stop me, put it down, [x3]
So baby,

[x2]
Don’t stop,
If I fall,
And don’t look back,
Oh baby,
Don’t stop, bury me,
And fade to black,

Don’t stop,

It's Not a Fashion Statement, It's a Deathwish
It's Not A Fashion Statement, It's A Fucking Deathwish

(For what you did to me
and what i'll do to you
you get what everyone else gets
you'll get a lifetime)

Lets Go!

Do you remember back when we met
you told me this gets harder
Well it did
Been holding on forever
promise me that when i'm gone you'll kill my enemies

The damage you've inflicted
temporary wounds
i'm coming back from the dead
and i'll take you home with me
i'm taking back the life you stole

We never got that far
this helps me to think
all through the night
bright lights that
won't kill me now
or tell me how
just you and i
your starless eyes remain

Hip hip hooray for me
you talk to me
but would you kill me in my sleep
lay still like the dead
from the razor to the rosary
we could lose ourselves
and paint these walls
in pitchfork red

I will avenge my ghost
with every breath i take
i'm coming back from the dead
and i'll take you home with me
i'm taking back the life you stole

This hole you put me in
wasn't deep enough
and i'm climbing out right now
you're running out of places
to hide from me

When you go
just know that i will remember you
if living was the hardest part
we'll then one day be together

And in the end we'll fall apart
just as the leaves change in color
and then i will be with you
i will be there one last time now

When you go
just know that i will remember you
i've lost my fear of falling
i will be with you, i will be with youback to top
Cemetery Drive
Artist/Band - My Chemical Romance
Album - Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Song - Cemetery Drive

This night… walk the dead,
In a solitary style and crash the…,
Cemetery gates,
In the dress your husband hates,
Way down… mark the grave,
Where the searchlights find us drinking by the mausoleum door,
And they found you on the bathroom floor,

I miss you,
I miss you so far,
And the collision of your kiss,
That made it so hard,

Back home… off the run,
Singing songs that make you slit your wrists,
It isn’t that much fun, staring down a loaded gun,
So I won’t stop dying, won’t stop lying,
If you want I’ll keep on crying,
Did you get what you deserve?,
Is this what you always want me for?,

I miss you,
I miss you so far,
And the collision of your kiss,
That made it so hard,

Way down…, [x8]

I miss you,
I miss you so far,
And the collision of your kiss,
That made it so hard,

I miss you,
I miss you so far,
And the collision of your kiss,
That made it so hard,
Made it so hard,

Way down…,
Way down…,
Way down…,
Way down…,
Way down…,
Way down…,

Way… down…,back to top
I Never Told You What I Do for a Living
Artist/Band – My Chemical Romance
Album – Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Song – I Never Told You What I Do For A Living

Stay out of the light,
Or the photograph that I gave you,
You can say a prayer if you need to,
Just get in line and I’ll grieve you,
Can I meet you alone?,
Another night and I’ll see you,
Another night and I’ll be you,
Some other way to continue,
To hide my face,

Another knife in my hands,
A stain that never comes off, the sheets,
Clean me off,
I’m so dirty babe,
The kind of dirty where the water never cleans off the clothes,
I keep a book of the names and those,
Only go so far, ‘til you bury them,
So deep and down we go,

Touched by angels though,
I fall out of grace,
I did it all so maybe,
I’d live this everyday,

Another knife in my hands,
A stain that never comes off, the sheets,
Clean me off,
I’m so dirty babe,
It ain’t the money and it’s sure as hell ain’t just for the fame,
It’s for the bodies I claim and they,
Only go so far, ‘til you bury them,
So deep and down we go down,

And down we go…, [x3]
And we all fall down,
Fall down, [x2 screaming]
And we’ll all dance along… to the suit of your death,
We’ll laugh again, we’ll laugh again,
And it’s better off this way,

[x2]
Well never again and never again,
They gave us two shots to the back of the head,
And we’re all… dead… now,

We’re dead…,
One more night… one more night,
Where I’m laughing, crying, laughing,
Well I tried, well I tried, well I tried,
‘Cause I tried, but I lied,
Well I…I tried, well I tried, well I tried, well…,
And we’ll love again, we’ll laugh again, we’ll cry again and we’ll dance again,
And it’s better off this way, so much better off this way,
I’ll get me your blood off the sheets in my brain,

Well never again and never again,
They gave us two shots to the back of the head,
And we’re all… dead… now,back to top
