My Chemical Romance – Blood lyrics

Well they encourage your complete cooperation
Send you roses when they think you need to smile
I can't control myself because I don't know how
And they love me for it honestly I'll be here for a while

So give them blood, blood
Gallons of the stuff
Give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough
So give them blood, blood, blood
Grab a glass because there's going to be a flood.

A celebrated man amongst the gurneys
They can fix me proper with a bit of luck
The doctors and the nurses, they adore me so
But it's really quite alarming cause I'm such an awful fuck (Why thank you!)

I gave you blood, blood
Gallons of the stuff
I gave you all that you can drink and it has never been enough
I gave you blood, blood, blood
I'm the kind of human wreckage that you love!

    Not just their fans, but critics, recorders, producers, etc. I think they're saying their supporters try to help them, but they just feel pressured to do more than they're capable of actually doing. "Send ya roses when they think you need to smile."
    And towards the end it's directed at "you," perhaps meaning that no one is ever satisfied and everyone just wants 'more, more, more! '
    This song reminds me largely of 'teenagers' in which he mentions violence. But this song mentions gurneys, like maybe they don't mind the giving of the blood, as opposed to having it beat out of em. The gurneys part also makes me think of blood donors? Like maybe he's willing to keep giving the blood? Not having it beaten out of him. Maybe. The part "fix me proper with a bit of luck" and "such an awful f*k" leads me to assume he's broken in a way. After which comes the "why thank you" perhaps meaning he doesn't want to be fixed? He also says "kind of human wreckage that ya love" with a sort of enthusiasm. The way it's put, I think he's ok with his broken self if we're ok with it. I doubt he'd care what we think anyway! Don't get me wrong, he's a totally awesome guy that's not afraid to do his own thing! And we totally love him for it!
    I also want to point out that I'm a huge fan of mcr! Good music and I love what they do.

    Lol, Zolo9, I understand ur predicament. When I had this cd, it said their were 14 songs on my cd player even though the back of the case said 13, so I sat there for awhile waiting for something to play, and figured they had accidentally done that to the disc, so I started reading and then all of a sudden the piano starts and I laughed so hard about the part where he says "cuz i'm such an aweful fuck" cuz on the edited version its just this really long beep, lolz, and I found it pretty funneh. Anyways, mcr rox!

    Think this song could be about how obsessed fans can be, and how they can want so much out of their idols and how mcr might feel that even though they do all they can its never enough for their fans or other people.
    'Give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff, give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough\'.
    As if they are giving their very souls in their work, pouring out every ounce of them into what they do and how some people can still want more.
