I think this song is about the people you grow up with in High School and the things they do to hurt you, and then growing up and seeing them as regular people who didn't really amount to everything they acted like they would've. Kind of spitefully saying "Well you did this to me, and you hurt me really badly, and now I'm here and I can sing these sad songs for the world while all you can do is your sad little job."
The life long wait for a hospital stay, I think, is just life in general, in the end all coming down to a possibly triumphant, but also possibly quiet and overall "disappointing" death. Disappointing isn't the best word, but you get it.

disenchanted | Reviewer: megan
obviously the song has been drawn from parts of gerards life and how he was feeling cause he wrote it and you cant just make that stuff up, but i think that in regards to the record and the story of the patient, the patient was looking back on his life, realising how little he had accomplished, that his whole life basically lead up to the hospital stay.
"a lifelong wait for a hospital stay"

Feeling... | Reviewer: Someone | 7/27/07
This song gave me feeling about someone feeling lonely. Unusually I felt something like that in a song. I think this is one of Gerard' s letter to his life. He can gave me his feelings with his voice and his words on this song. Congratulations if he ment it, share his feelings with someone.

Perfect | Reviewer: Vincent | 5/28/07
This is without a doubt one of the best songs in the album. And we can see that this song is probably Gerard's own life but I like the fact that people can connect with it's lyrics in a deep way, kinda in the way of being in Gerard's place. It's a real sad song but it's wonderful
i happen to like itt... | Reviewer: AnarKiss
MORE THAN THAT, I LOVE ITT.
its a very emotional song, with realworld connections. whoever that was that sed the whole sellout thing, yea, its written for that, but theres also emotion in it. pure emotion. you dont sing like that live (ATL 4/24/07) just for show.
