It's perfect | Reviewer: xoDESTROYA | 10/14/13
Great song. I only come to this site for lyrics seeing as all the raging and bitching in the reviews is pretty damn hillarious. Y'all take it too seriously. My Chem are great, my fav band for ever. I know everything about them, but guys, really, don't show off for fuck's sake, it's just kinda irritaiting. Especially when you're one of those people who doesn't even know who Bob Bryar is.
JUST STOP | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/19/11
If you want to stop labels, stop talking about them. Stop acknowledging there is such thing as labels and what labels are and your opinion on them. Same goes with racism, to stop racism you stop talking about it, because talking about it is being racist. Are you following? If everyone stopped saying emo, it would eventually die out, like so many words. Words from the 70's and other famous decades like that fade out, no one uses them regularly any more. We all just criticise labelling right now, but soon enough it will stop. Just do your fair share, and stop it yourself. (I know this sounds hypocritical cause here I am going on about it, but you get what I mean).
Moving on, I love the comment before saying the "Fashion statement" is the label. It all just clicked it my mind and I don't see it from any other perspective. Thanks!

one of my favourite songs from MCR. they kinda saved me too but not in the serious way like suicide or selfharm, more in the personal way that i couldn't act myself and relax which prevented me from having many good friends and after a while i felt fed up and quite depressed inside, discovering this band and their songs was like a pill which made me feel like expressing myself and just getting out there, thats why i've made sure everyone i know knows that MCR is my favourite band because of how they helped me and millions of other fans :) their concert will definetly be one of the most memorable days of my life because of how much they helped me find me, my chemical romance <3 just had to share lol :) <333
OK, first off I'd like to say I LOVE MCR and they have helped me through a lot of problems I was going through before I found them. They taught me to be myself and not try to be "normal" as I was trying to be, I found myself thanks to them.
Some people call me emo, or ask if I am, and the truth is, I don't care.
They can label me if they want, but I personally think I'm just me. Some people have "Cliques" and file people away under categories, but everyone is different and unique and may not always fit with all the criteria of a certain category.
One of my mates though, admits to it. He came into the school after summer and was completely different, he had dyed his hair and it was long and covered one eye, and a friend of mine cracked a joke about how he was hiding behind his "Fashion statement" (side fringe) And suddenly a meaning hit me and this was no longer just a song to me. He got picked on a lot because of his "fashion statement" so it became a Fucking Death wish XD
He was willing to take this persecution because he was proud to be himself, and all the pain that came with that.
I know this might not be the meaning that was intended, but hey, different people see different meanings, right? This one relates to my life, about how people are often persecuted because of the way they dress or the way they look, so this is the message I see.
I haven't got their first album, but I love both Three Cheers and The Black Parade, each of them means something to me. And I don't see why people are hating on The Black Parade, so they tried something different. So what? It's good to change things up a little and they're still equally as good.
In art GCSE you have to do experimental work. Silk painting, batik, prints etc. Basically new stuff that doesn't use traditional means. Sometimes, you find you don't like how it worked out and that's good. You won't try it again, but other times it works out surprisingly well, and you find that you want to continue working with that medium to get some new and interesting results. You may even mix it with some traditional mediums to get some REALLY interesting and beautiful work!
Same goes with music.
If you don't change you're sound every once in a while, people will get bored.
The Black Parade is like experimental work i think, and I personally think it worked out well, and hope that maybe a happy compromise can be reached in their next album which has their good old original sound from Three Cheers, but incorporating some of what they learnt whilst working on The Black Parade to really mix it up and make their sound truly unique.
Sorry, I kinda rambled a bit there lol! but it had to be said
I'm not much a poet, but a criminal. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/8/09
Lizzy Rose, actually the correct title for this song DOES have the word "fucking" in it. Therefore there is no need of fixing the title to the song on this website. Besides that fact, I would like to say this is an amazing song and that I love this band immensely. They have helped me through an awful lot during my life, and I love them to pieces for it. As for people debating on which album is My Chemical Romance's best album, I would have to say I enjoy "I brought you my bullets you brought me your love" the most. I'm not exactly sure why I do, but it just is my favourite for some reason that is unknown to myself.

This is one of my favorite songs from My Chemical Romance. But you know what I'm tired of? POSERS! All they say is "OMG! I LOVE GERARD!" it's very annoying. But some people come onto these lyrics to hate on emos and MCR. I'm really tired of that. So, please stop if you are any of these people. No offense, I like Mikey, but you don't see me saying "OMFG!!! I LOVE MIKEY!". So...yeah.
Its an amazing song and personal i love both Three cheers for sweet revenge and Black Parade.
I can find no mistake in the Lyrics altho the title is wrong, there is no "Fucking" in the title acording to the offical CD cover!

"You get, what everyone else gets,
You get a lifetime!"
This line was blatently taken from The Sandman graphic novel... excellent reference...
I saw MCR when they toured The Black Parade, concert was suprisingly good, but there encore was all the old stuff, and the energy at the concert just exploded. Even though the lyrics of "I Brought You My Bullets" and "Three Cheers" were much more... depressing, I think the style of the albums is what makes them so much more superior to "The Black Parade". This song is definately one of my favorites though, but "This is the Best Day Ever" is my absolute favorite.
Any word on a new album?
It really is NOT a fashion statement. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/10/08
Sorry if this causes offense, but i think anyone who is "emo", and hurts themself purely for that reason,is full of shit. I struggled with self harm for years, and the reason I never told anyone is because I knew I would be labelled. MCR are awesome, and they've helped so many people. I am one of them. Please, will everybody who isn't really depressed just stop pretending already?! You're stopping people from getting the help you need, and it's not a fashion statement.If you've suffered from depression, you know just how real it is, and people shouldn't make a joke of it.
LONG LIVE MCR! And for all the people out there who are REALLY dealing with depression, stay strong! We can get through this!
PS, I'm not angry with anyone who wears emo clothes or listens to emo music, I'm just pissed off at all these kids who label themselves and PRETEND that they have problems.
Um, Aleks, no . . | Reviewer: WhoCares | 8/30/08
I'm not even going to bother talking about the lyrics on the new album. I will say that I hate the new album, because the music itself sucks.
I can listen to shitty lyrics with great music, but mediocre lyrics with shitty music? No. And no.
Revenge. | Reviewer: Aleks
Although I’m not a huge fan of My Chemical Romance, I think Gerard was a better writer when the first two albums were made due to his depression, although this is not a good thing. I think this was because he was able to write something that other people connected with. On the other hand if he had continued to write about how depressed he was My Chemical Romance would have become very stagnant very fast.
When it comes to The Black Parade, they either wrote a concept album just because they could, or it could have been that concept albums are hard to write because it makes the story more personal to the writer and not everyone’s story is exactly the same, making it harder for people to connect with the songs, explaining why others may thing their previous albums are better.
And for anyone that thinks being ‘emo’ is a good label to give themselves it’s not, it’s pathetic, no arguments, no empathising, nothing. “Wanting to die on the outside so no one can see the pain on the inside” is a psychological condition, not a fashion statement. So I suggest you either get help or shut up because you obviously don’t know what you are talking about. Got a fucking death wish?
Perhaps now you know what the title means.
Anyway, I think this song is about someone misleading Gerard promising him everything yet giving him nothing, glorifiying the life of drugs and alcohol. Gerard finally realised what it was really doing to him and wants to get revenge and 'take back the life they stole.' He's telling whoever it is, this lifestyle is not a fashion statement, it's a deathwish.
^_^ one of the best songs | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/10/08
this has so much meaning to it, not everyone understands it but i always feel all his songs have a meaning. If he didn't write his songs i would never know that i was emo. It makes me feel so much better to know what i am.
I love this song, and all the others, too. MCR is the best band ever, I hope that they will never break up. I'm serious. They helped me through alot of pain in my life. Thanks.
p.s. if u spell my name backwards, you'll see its true meaning..
Powerful | Reviewer: Emokid | 1/30/08
I've always listened to this song but never felt it's true meaning.. Then i said the name over in my head reandomly completely out of the blue: It's not a fashion statement, its a fucking deathwish... I'm emo. i'll admit it. But being emo does not mean that you paint your nails black or have black hair or wear black clothes.. I sometimes wear pink clothes actually but thats not the point.. vbeing emo is not a fashion statement.. Its wanting to die to cause youself pain on the outside so no one else can cause you pain on the inside anymore because it has been suppressed by the physical harm which you have created.. That you can control
find out what there really like !!! go 2 u tube meeting mcr | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/23/08
