maybe someday this will all make sense we were so much older back then now we wonder why we ever mattered and we carry on with our day can't you see that the streets are freezing am I staring at another ceiling? when the words don't match your feelings how long do we keep believing? I'll become your ghost I'll follow you wherever you go I'll become your ghost And we're waiting, waiting, fading away we all breathe the same air anyway we all struggle as we try to keep ourselves above the fray swimming backwards and dragging out our yesterdays so what's in store today? I'll become your ghost I'll follow you wherever you go I'll become your ghost And we're waiting, waiting sometimes we lose sight of all we ever wanted to hide when there's no one by your side I'll become your ghost I'll follow you wherever you go I'll become your ghost And we're waiting I'll become your ghost I'll follow you wherever you go I'll become your ghost And we're waiting, waiting, fading away

There is no one coming to save the world So it has to be us And it's beautiful and sad And it's all that I have So that will have to be enough There is no one coming to save the world I've been asking myself if I've done enough for this To be worthy of the world that I have made for us And in the shadows of the man I was And the woman I've always been The truth is I am enough I've been asking for revolution Panic and chaos without resolution When the panic inside was all I could see Now I find that I'm cleared in my own decisions I am enough and the world, it has to catch up Everything that I used to know Is lost in the past where it belongs No looking back just further on Three cheers for the end of the dark Everything that I used to know Is lost in the past where it belongs No looking back just further on Three cheers for the end of the dark There is no one coming to save the world Three cheers for the end of the dark Three cheers for the end of the dark Everything that I used to know Is lost in the past where it belongs No looking back just further on Three cheers for the end of the dark Everything that I used to know Is lost in the past where it belongs No looking back just further on Three cheers for the end of the dark Everything that I used to know Is lost in the past where it belongs No looking back just further on Three cheers for the end of the dark

Top Side 02:59
Yeah I'm old but I'm under-rated And I don't want to overstate it I'm more panicked every single day Yeah I'm working and I get by On a diet of alcohol and Facetime But I miss my friends and the songs we play There's empty tables everywhere And darkened theatres; I swear I saw a ghost last night in my backyard staring My tremor's getting worse somehow I can't help but remembering how down I felt eight years ago and maybe it's worse now I write songs but no one hears me I'm fucking sad, don't say I'm lazy And it just keeps getting worse each day We're all here hoping it gets better Trying to get to now from never And I just can't bring myself to say That I'm okay That you're okay That I'm okay That we're okay We can make it top side We can crawl out of this mess we're in I can make it top side I can climb out, I'll be whole again We can make it top side We can crawl out of this mess we're in I can make it top side I can climb out, I'll be whole again We can make it top side We can crawl out of this mess we're in I can make it top side I can climb out, I'll be whole again We can make it top side We can crawl out of this mess we're in I can make it top side I can climb out, I'll be whole again We can make it top side We can crawl out of this mess we're in I can make it top side I can climb out, I'll be whole again

Satsuma 01:39
Now that we're waiting For another understanding to end I'm already moving on to "begin" So when this all ends up with us friends Then we'll remember how we all start again And again I try to recommend The way back to your heart Is a bullet to the back of my head So strike that thought and strike my name from your list And we'll go back to separation again I know you'll just forget in the end So meet me down by the water We'll take our chance and go to the slaughter Come back and make up a goodbye Ok alright, I might just try To wake up and meet you by the water

I wonder if they'll ever find we're out here The colors stretch as far as I can see And I'm feeling like the lot of us will die here But at least I know it's not all up to me The hull is taking on all sorts of pressure And at any moment it's all about to breach So get your women and your children all out of here Before there's no air left for them to breathe I'll find a way to keep you safe From everything that we have made For today we'll hide away I'll keep the light on til we're safe Captain, I've been thinking of our time here How oxygen is all we really need The deck is now our graveyard and we all fear That death is coming sooner than we believe So gather up your families and your belongings The fire makes it hard for us to see And if God herself had word in all that's happening She'd say "Earth is where the human race should be" I'll find a way to keep you safe From everything that we have made For today we'll hide away I'll keep the light on til we're safe Flying high at night We found the light It burned our eyes Flying high at night We found the light It burned our eyes I'll keep you safe Whoa-oh oh Whoa-oh oh Whoa-oh oh I'll keep you safe Whoa-oh oh Whoa-oh oh Whoa-oh oh I'll keep you safe

Dressed all in black on this Halloween night And up from my phone beamed a fabulous sight Can this be true, tell me it's real That MCR rises like phantoms with zeal Where's my shirt from The Black Parade Does it fit me still My Chemical Romance is back from the dead Don't buy yourself tickets Get me a pair instead I'd buy them myself but my bank account's low Tell Liza Minnelli I must see the show My job is soul-sucking, you don't even know Please get me please get me please get me some I don't have any disposable income What if I'm working, what if I'm up late What have I become How do I prove that I'm really worthy A conspiracy remark about John F Kennedy I'll sing for the world, I'll do push ups in drag To witness the show and then later brag "I was so close to Gerard Way I almost touched his hand Oh my god, he actually Looked at me, I swear" My Chemical Romance is back from the dead Don't buy yourself tickets Get me a pair instead I'd buy them myself but my bank account's low Tell Liza Minnelli I must see the show My job is soul-sucking, you don't even know Please get me please get me please get me some I don't have any disposable income Please get me please get me please get me some My Chemical Romance is back from the dead Don't buy yourself tickets Get me a few instead I'd buy them myself but my FICO score's low Tell Liza Minnelli it's on with the show My job is soul-sucking, you don't even know Please get me please get me please get me some I don't have any disposable income What if I'm working, what if I'm up late What have I become Please get me please get me please get me some I don't have any disposable income What if I'm working, what if I'm up late What have I become

There's something rotting In the pit of my stomach And it's waiting for something to break out through my skin I don't think I am able To bring too much to the table I'll just keep my voice down and try to keep it in Keep everything in There's nothing waiting No more worlds in the making Nothing better than me, nothing stronger than all that we are So I keep myself silent So much for being defiant I'll just drifting while everything's falling apart Falling apart And I don't think I've found the science To live up to my defiance So I trip over my tongue And fall back into my bad habits I run and try and try again Just to end up back where I begin Draw the circle tight and disappear These hospital dreams Break me down at the seams All my guns are raised and horror's down below again Time stays and sticks around So I go back underground In the hopes the sun might peek below the horizon Another horizon And I don't think I've found the science To live up to my defiance So I trip over my tongue And fall back into my bad habits I run and try and try again Just to end up back where I begin Draw the circle tight and disappear Just stand up straighter Sing even louder Nothing can touch you if you don't believe it's real Just stand up straighter Sing even louder Nothing can touch you if you don't believe it's real If you don't believe you're real And I don't think I've found the science To live up to my defiance So I trip over my tongue And fall back into my bad habits I run and try and try again Just to end up back where I begin Draw the circle tight and disappear Draw the circle tight and disappear Draw the circle tight and disappear

Santa Gritty 01:52
Up on the Philly rooftops You might see a Santa Grit He knows if you've been bad or good But he doesn't give a shit He knows what you are thinking So be careful what you say And sleep with one eye open He's not messing around today He's got cigarettes and condoms For all the good jawns in this city So say your prayers, shut your mouth WATCH OUT, it's Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty Santa Gritty He's coming for you!

No Shake Bed 01:39
You make a line About coming back today Like I can't see through another You're waking up And going back to sleep I can't see you tomorrow I while the time away Bringing it back to me Like the time I saved But I can't wait for tomorrow

Weight 04:55
Up at 5:07 Getting older in my own head No one can fix you, to find a way back So I can smile I can't find my way home We were four years old We were kids, we were so still The fire is dying And straying along in our lives What a night It's not time What a lie We can tell ourselves Finding a way back home Tell me a lie That we're all fine If we can imagine All of the weight of it for tonight Take the pictures down Sometimes wonder why I keep them around Wait for a moment For something to hide my eyes What a lie It's not time What a lie We can tell ourselves Finding a way back home Tell me a lie That we're all fine If we can imagine We can imagine it And time has taken its toll on me And I can't find my way back to the Night we met, night we said All the things we've forgotten again Is this you or me tonight It's not time What a lie We can tell ourselves Finding a way back home Tell me a lie That we're all fine If we can imagine We can imagine it That we're alive That I'm alive That you're alive That we're alive When all I have is tonight We were four years old Once we had it all Now just the weight is left

Not My Exit 03:23
For the people I don't care about The ones I know and can do without You know who you are I'm so much more, much more than this I've left my past behind in the evening mist I'm better now by far You can take this anchor And the weight behind you And throw it away With all the years I've spent afraid 'Cause I won't sink I will keep on rising We're not falling For all the goddamn lies About how it's all too much to take We'll keep on fighting for our own sake I'll stand up, I'll face it 'Cause this is not my exit They all say "You're old and overrated Give up, move on, and fade away" Stuck inside all their past mistakes Lost in the woods without a path to take We can make it out alive 'Cause I won't sink I will keep on rising We're not falling For all the goddamn lies About how it's all too much to take We'll keep on fighting for our own sake I'll stand up, I'll face it 'Cause this is not my exit All I know is what I don't know 'Cause I won't sink I will keep on rising We're not falling For all the goddamn lies About how it's all too much to take We'll keep on fighting for our own sake I'll stand up, I'll face it 'Cause this is not my exit
