Well I was there on the day
They sold the cause for the queen,
And when the lights all went out
We watched our lives on the screen.
I hate the ending myself,
But it started with an alright scene.

It was the roar of the crowd
That gave me heartache to sing.
It was a lie when they smiled
And said, "you won't feel a thing"
And as we ran from the cops
We laughed so hard it would sting

Yeah yeah, oh

If I'm so wrong (so wrong, so wrong)
How can you listen all night long? (night long, night long)
Now will it matter after I'm gone?
Because you never learn a goddamned thing.

You're just a sad song with nothing to say
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
Well if you think that I'm wrong,
This never meant nothing to ya

I spent my high school career
Spit on and shoved to agree
So I can watch all my heroes
Sell a car on tv
Bring out the old guillotine
We'll show them what we all mean.

Yeah yeah, oh

If I'm so wrong (so wrong, so wrong)
How can you listen all night long? (night long, night long)
Now will it matter long after I'm gone?
Because you never learn a goddamned thing.

You're just a sad song with nothing to say
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
And if you think that I'm wrong,
This never meant nothing to ya

So go, go away, just go, run away.
But where did you run to? And where did you hide?
Go find another way, price you pay

Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah

You're just a sad song with nothing to say
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
And if you think that I'm wrong,
This never meant nothing to ya, come on

You're just a sad song with nothing to say
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
Well if you think that I'm wrong,
This never meant nothing to ya

At all, at all, at all, at all...

    this song is basically just about how life in general is just a big disappointment for him and he has lost all belief that life is at all worthwhile, but he still can remeber some of the good times before when he still had optimism toward life. and then in the song he says how like life is just a long wait for a hospital stay cause many people end up in the hospital and then die, and all their life before that was just leading up to that. its really a sort of depressing song when you think about it but that doesnt stop me from loving it, its just so touching even if its in a sad way, i think anyways. and ya if it reminds you of someone that you loved that makes it even better.

    "Disenchanted" means things that end badly. Usually start okay, and end badly. And Gee uses many metaphoric lines to point that out: "I hate the ending myself/but its started with an alright scene" and "We laughed so hard it would sting"

    I beautiful, moving, sad song; one of my favorites and always will be. MCR means a lot to me, and so does this song

    the guy loved a depressed girl. but how can he continue loving her if she can't love her own self. he's been trying to build her up but still, she's the one who makes her own life complicated. "she doesn't learn a goddamn thing", until he gave up and let her find her own way.
