You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison
by My Chemical Romance



In the middle of a gun fight,
In the center of a restaurant
They say, "Come with your arms raised high!".
Well, they're never gonna get me.
Like a bullet through a flock of doves
To wage this war against your faith in me.
Your life will never be the same!
On your mother's eyes, say a prayer, say a prayer!

Now, but I can't.
And I don't know
How we're just two men, as God had made us.
Well, I can't, well, I can't!
Too much, too late, or just not enough of this
Pain in my heart for your dying wish?
I kiss your lips again.

They all cheat at cards and the checkers are lost.
My cellmate's a killer, they make me do push-ups in drag,
But nobody cares if you're losing yourself.
Am I losing myself?
Well, I miss my mom.
Will they give me the chair
Or lethal injection, or swing from a rope if you dare?
Ah, nobody knows all the trouble I've seen!

Now, but I can't.
And I don't know
How we're just two men, as God had made us.
Well, I can't, well, I can't!
Too much, too late, or just not enough of this
Pain in my heart for your dying wish?
I kiss your lips again.

To your room ...
What they ask of you,
Will make you want to say, "So long".
Well, I don't remember,
Why remember you?

Do you have the keys to the hotel?
'Cause I'm gonna string this motherfucker on fire!
(Fire!)

Life is but a dream for the dead.
And well, I, I won't go down by myself
But I'll go down with my friends!

Now! Now, now, now!
Now, now, now!
Now, now, now!
Yeah! Yeah!
