Desolation Row (MCR version) Lyrics - My Chemical Romance

Review The Song (2)

Selling postcards
Of the hanging
Well they're painting
The passports brown
And the beauty parlor
Is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
And now here comes
The blind commissioner
Well they got him in a trance
One hand is tied
To the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad
They're restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady
And I look out tonight
From Desolation Row

She seems so easy
"Well it takes one to know one"
She smiles
And she puts her hands
In her back pockets
Bette Davis style
And now in comes Romeo
"You Belong to Me I Believe"
And someone says
"You're in the wrong place
My friend
You better leave"
And then the only sound that's left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row

Now at midnight all the agents
And superhuman crew
Go out and round up everyone
That knows more than they do
They're gonna bring them 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

'Cause right now I can't read too good
Don't send me no more letters no
Not unless you gonna mail them
From Desolation Row

nope, my chem/gee didnt write this, Bob Dylan did, except the original went for about 11 minutes and had a lot more lyrics.
Gerard cut out a lot of those lyrics, and the band made the song shorter. They covered the song for the move The Watchmen which is coming out soon.


anyway, i loveeee this song! I think they did a great job :D

Well done MCR!!! | Reviewer: Aly-MCRMY | 2/5/09

althught it sounds very different from mcr's other songs. but its so good. did they write this song? i'm really confused.
some say its a cover and then some say they wrote it. the lyrics look like something gerard would write.

well freaking done mcr! its good to see you back in action!! can't wait for the new album!!!!
