Story about this misheard lyric by: Tara

When I first heard this song, I would always say this and my best friend would always get frustrated and he would tell me to take time and read the lyrics and study them and the next time I see him I should know them or he was gonna be mad and do something to me, thank God I got it right the next time I saw him at school. Btw: Idk what he was gonna do to me and till this day I still don't know what he wanted to do.

Song Parody Fragments:

"Welcome to the Black Parade"
Better Lyrics:
When I was a young girl...erm I mean boy,

My father took me into the village,

to see the great plague.

He said son when you grow up,

would you be,

The saviour of the chicken,

The sauteed & the fried

He said wil you defeat them,

The plaguests & all the grim reapers

The plans that they have made

Becasue one day,

I'll leave you,

my fortune

of 39cents

to fight the great plague
Original Lyrics:
When I was a young boy,

My father took me into the city,

To see a marching band.

He said son when you grow up,

Would you be,

The saviour of the broken,

The beaten & the dammed.

He said will you, defeat them,

The demons & all the non believers,

The plans that they have made.

bacause one day,

I'll leave you,

a phantom,

to lead you in the summer,

& join the black parade.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Teenagers"
The Funny Lyrics:
Teenagers scare the living *** out of me
They could care less as long as someone'll bleed
So darken your clothes or strike a violent pose
Maybe they'll leave you alone but not me
Why They're Funny:
This song is absolutely hilarious, it's about how the teenage fan-base of MCR just won't give them any peace. Let's say for instance I started dressing in black or "striking violent poses" no one would care. But those apathetic, hurtful teenagers won't leave poor Gerard Way and his band alone... and frankly, he finds them to be slightly scary human specimens.

"My Way Home Is Through You"
The Funny Lyrics:
Well my gun fires seven different shades of s**t
So what's your favorite color punk?

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Give me the chair
Lethal injection,
I'll swing from a rope if you dare.
Why They're Insincere:
Well,It's all the ways you could die in prison, and thats not exactly sincere, because people have died in all those ways before.

And now the red pills make me fly,

Mama, we're all gonna die.
And when we go don't blame us, yeah.
We'll let the fires just bathe us, yeah.
You made us, oh, so famous.
We'll never let you go.
And when you go don't return to me my love.
Mama, we're all full of lies.
Mama, we're meant for the flies.
And right now they're building a coffin your size,
Mama, we're all full of lies.
Well Mother, what the war did to my legs and to my tongue,
You should've raised a baby girl,
I should've been a better son.
If you could coddle the infection
They can amputate at once.
You should've been,
I could have been a better son.
And when we go don't blame us, yeah.
We'll let the fires just bathe us, yeah.
You made us, oh, so famous.
We'll never let you go.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Desolation Row"
The Lyrics:
They gonna bring 'em to the factory
Where the heart-attack machine
Is strapped across their shoulders
and then the kerosene!
Is brought down from the castles
By insurance men who go
Check to see that no one is escaping to
Desolation Row
Why:
The song, I'm pretty sure, is about people condemned to death by the system. But you can't hear the lyrics, really, when you listen to the song--I actually kept it on loop while my anti-My Chemical Romance friend listened.

Crime Records:

"Cancelling a Show"
sometime in November, My Chem had to cancel a show at a university because Bob [Bryar, drums] was injured. The University sued My Chem for this, even though the law clearly states that if a musician has to cancel for illness or injury it's perfectly fine. My Chem paid the university, and offered to play again in the spring there, but the college turned them down stating "they won't let it happen again."

Hidden Messages:

"Cemetery Drive"

"I Gave You My Bullets, You Gave Me Your Love"
On the outside of the CD, where the duplication warning normally is, it says, "Unauthorised duplication is a violation of applicable laws and will result in Gerard coming to your house and sucking your blood."

"Helena"
Play the song backwards and listen closely. The song talks about (supposedly) Gerard's grandmother, which is ironic since his Grandmother had died a few months before the album came out.
