My Chemical Romance – House Of Wolves lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well, I know a thing about contrition,
Because I got enough to spare.
And I'll be granting your permission,
Cause you haven't got a prayer.
Well I said, hey hallelujah,
I'm gonna come on, sing the praise.
Let the spirit come on through ya,
We got innocence for days!

[Chorus]
Well I think I'm gonna burn in hell,
Everybody burn the house right down.
And say, yeah, what I wanna say,
Tell me I'm an angel, take this to my grave,
Tell me I'm a bad man.
Kick me like a stray, tell me I'm an angel,
Take this to my grave.

(S-I-N, I S-I-N,
S-I-N, I S-I-N,
S-I-N, I S-I-N,
S-I-N, I S-I-N)

[Verse 2]
You play ring around the ambulance,
Well like you never gave a care.
So get the choir boys around you,
It's a compliment, I swear.
I said, ashes to ashes, we all fall down,
I wanna hear you sing the praise.
I said, ashes to ashes, we all fall down,
We got innocence for days!

[Chorus]
Well I think I'm gonna burn in hell,
Everybody burn the house right down.
And say, yeah, what I wanna say,
Tell me I'm an angel, take this to my grave,
Tell me I'm a bad man.
Kick me like a stray, tell me I'm an angel,
Take this to my grave.

[Hook]
You better run like the devil,
Cause they're never gonna leave you alone.
You better hide up in the alley,
Cause they're never gonna find you a home.
And as the blood runs down the walls,
You see me creepin' up these halls,
I've been a bad motherfucker,
Tell your sister I'm another!
Go! Go! Go!

[Bridge]
Well I said say, what I wanna say,
Tell me I'm an angel, take this to my grave,
Tell me I'm a bad man.
Kick me like a stray, tell me I'm an angel,
Take this to my grave.

Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man,
Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man,
Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man,
Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man.

[Outro]
So get up! So get out!
S-I-N, I S-I-N!

    It is about a man who is now laying in his death bed remembering what an awful sinner he was in his youth so now he wants someone to tell him hes a good man so he can (think that he will) go to heaven. I'm 14 and I figured this out. But He realizes moments before his death that what he did was unforgivable and that he is doomed to hell.

    I think it's about someone-- and since this is on The Black Parade album, I'm guessing it's The Patient-- who sinned at some point, and now that he know's he's going to die, he wants to be forgiven. And he's not sure if he will be, that's why it keeps going from "tell me I'm an angel" to "tell me I'm a bad man". But then near the end the angel part goes away and he's just saying he's a bad man, so he figures that he wont be forgiven and that he is doomed to hell.
