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
Will 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 they have made

Because one day I'll leave you
A phantom to lead you in the summer
To join the black parade

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

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
Though your 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

And we will send you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Lets shout it loud and clear
Do you fight it to the end
We hear the call to
To carry on
We'll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
You're weary widow marches on
And on we carry through the fears
Ooh oh oh

Disappointed faces of your peers
Ooh oh
Take a look at me 'cause I could not care at all
Do or die
You'll never make me
'Cause the world, will never take my heart
Though you try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
Won't explain or say I'm sorry
I'm not ashamed, I'm gonna show my scar
Give a cheer for all the broken
Listen here, because it's only
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
Just a boy, who's meant to sing this song
Just a man, I'm not a hero
I, don't, care

Carry on
We'll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
You'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
You're wiry widow marches on
We'll carry on
We'll carry on
