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 savior of the broken 
The beaten and the damned 
He said will you defeat them,
Your demons, and all the non-believers
The plans that they have made?
 Because one day I'll leave you
A phantom to lead you in the summer 
To join the black parade

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 savior of the broken 
The beaten and the damned 

 Sometimes I get the feeling she's watching over me
And other times I feel like I should go
And through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets 
And when you're gone we want you all to know

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I can't contain it
The anthem won't explain it

A world that sends you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Let's shout it loud and clear  Defiant to the end we hear the call

To carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated 
Your weary widow marches 

On and on we carry through the fears  Disappointed faces of your peers 
Take a look at me cause I could not care at all

Do or die, you'll never make me
 Because the world will never take my heart 
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part

I won't explain or say I'm sorry 
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scar
Give a cheer for all the broken  Listen here, because it's who we are
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
Just a boy, who had to sing this song
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
I! don't! care!

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated 
Your weary widow marches on

Do or die, you'll never make me
 Because the world will never take my heart 
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part (we'll carry on)

Do or die, you'll never make me (we'll carry on)
 Because the world will never take my heart (we'll carry on)
Go and try, you'll never break me (we'll carry)
We want it all, we wanna play this part (we'll carry on)
