Heaven help us, save us from ourselves
I think I'm going headfirst for halos
And it's dragging me down to hell
So run away, kill all your friends
And get locked up in desolation row
The early sunsets over Monroeville
Will rid you with sorrow.
When you wake up, you'll listen to their famous last words
Before they hang 'em high
But the interlude was rather long
And it made you cry all night.
Helena was a sad, sad girl
But you let her into your mind
Her melancholy face filled your dreams
So you told her to "look alive, sunshine."
You thought you had a bulletproof heart
But you were tested through and through
You felt yourself breaking but then came summertime
She screamed: "I don't love you."
Into your cubicles you locked yourself
All you wanted to do was sleep
But you needed your mama there with you
And all you could do was weep
Our lady of sorrows was keen to help
She said she'd always be at your aid
But you were disenchanted and you could hear your father
"Welcome to the black parade."
