RIGHT NOW!

I hope you're ready for a firefight
Cause the devil's got your number tonight (They say! )
We're never leaving this place alive
But if we sing these words we'll never die

Get off the ledge and drop the knife
Not a victim of a victim's life
Because this ain't a room full of suicides
We're believers, I believe tonight

We could leave this world, leave it all behind
We could steal this car if your folks don't mind
We could live forever if you've got the time...

Na na na na na
If you save yourself tonight...

Na na na na na
If you save yourself tonight...

I'll tell you all how the story ends
Where the good guys die and the bad guys win (Who cares! )
It ain't about all the friends you've made
But the graffiti they write on your grave

And all of us who've seen the light
Salute the dead and lead the fight (Hail hail! )
Who gives a damn if we lose the war?
Let the walls come down
Let the engines roar!

We could leave this world, leave it all behind
We could steal this car if your folks don't mind
We could live forever if you've got the time
I'm the only friend that makes you cry
You're a heart attack in black hair dye
So just save yourself and I'll hold them back tonight...

Are y'all ready where you are?
If you save yourself tonight
Cause they're coming for you...
Can you save yourself tonight! ?

Right now!

Cannot hold them back!

We could leave this world, leave it all behind
We could steal this car if your folks don't mind!
We could live forever if you've got the time

You motherfucker!
Woah!

Through the broken glass and the morning light,
Be a burning star if it takes all night!
So just save yourself I'll hold them back tonight!

Na na na na na
If you save yourself tonight

Na na na na na
Can you save yourself tonight?...

    A song about life, and how important it is. Not to let any one bring you down, or tell you other wise. Saying it doesn't matter that you're different. These guys mean everything to me :3

    It's anti suicide. It's saying why let the people who are bringing you down win? Be yourself. Who cares what they say?
    Gerard really means this because this is how his life as a teenager was.
