Welcome to the Black Parade
by My Chemical Romance



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,
Will 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 out loud and clear.
Defiant till 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,
Will carry on!
And though your 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!
Go and try,
You'll never break me!
You want it all,
You wanna play this part!
I won't explain,
I'll say I'm sorry!
I'm unashamed,
I'm gonna show my scar!
Gonna cheer
For all the broken!
Listen here
Because it's ???
I'm just a man,
I'm not a hero,
Just a boy!
I'm gonna 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,
You'll carry on!
And though your 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!
You want it all,
You wanna play this part!
Do or die,
You'll never make me
Because the world
Will never take my heart!
Go and try,
You'll never break me!
You want it all,
You wanna play this part!
