We could be perfect one last night
And die like star-crossed lovers when we fight
And we can settle this affair
If you would shed your yellow take my hand
And then we'll solve the mystery of laceration gravity
This riddle of revenge please understand it has to be this way

Stand up fucking tall
Don't let them see your back
Take my fucking hand
And never be afraid again

We've only got once chance to put this at an end
And cross the patron saint of switchblade fights
You said we're not celebrities, we spark and fade, they die by threes
I'll make you understand and you can trade me for an apparition

Stand up fucking tall
Don't let them see your back
Take my fucking hand
And never

Trust, you said
Who put the words in your head
Oh how wrong we were to think
That immortality meant never dying

Take my fucking hand
Take my fucking...

Stand up fucking tall
Don't let them see your back
Take my fucking hand
And never be afraid again

Just because my hands around your throat!

    I think it means MCR will always be there.
    No matter what till they die they will be there for their fans and their fans should take comfort in that and be strong.

    and its
    not NEVER TRUST.
    And speaking of trust-
    I think it means that you should really trust aynone, but you shouldt e afraid to trust the people you want to.
    "dont let them see your back" - dont trust them.
    i think hes saying there are certain people you HAVE to trust with certain things or your life would be damn difficult, but dont give them knives to use against you thn turn ur back, coz thats just asking to be stabbed.
    If you keep your knives close to your chest and your back against wall u need "never be afraid again".
    I think he (the persona) is saying take my hand, do like i do and you'll be fine, but f u think you can cope with being stabbed in the back go for it, ut when you decide you cant anymore my hand will still be there, outstretched to pull you back up off the floor.
    Peace. Keep it Chemical xx
