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
You will 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 
(Oh, oh, oh)
 Disappointed faces of your peers 
(Oh, oh, oh)

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 
You can try
You'll never break me

We wanna all
We want to play this part
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 your 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 
You can try
You'll never break me
We wanna know
We want to play this part

Do or die (we'll carry on)
You'll never make me (we'll carry on)
 Because the world (we'll carry on)
Will never take my heart 
You can try
You'll never break me
We wanna all
We want to play this part (we'll carry on)
