Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide

Make a wish when your childhood dies
Hear the knock, knock, knock when she cries
We're all alone tonight

Hold your breath when a black bird flies
Count to seventeen and close your eyes
I'll keep you safe inside

He burns my skin
Never mind about the shape I'm in
I'll keep you safe tonight, y-yeah

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide
Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide

Blow a kiss at the methane skies
See the rust through your playground eyes
We're all in love tonight (all in love tonight)

Leave a dream where the fallout lies
Watch it grow with the tearstain dries
To keep you safe tonight

He burns my skin
Never mind about the shape I'm in
I'll keep you safe tonight, y-yeah

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide
Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide

Love, love, love won't stop this
Bomb, bomb, love won't stop this
Bomb, bomb, love won't stop this
Bomb

Run, run, bunny run
Run, run, bunny run

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide
Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide
Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide
Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the scarecrow
Everybody hide

    Everyone who says mcr is emo and that they have lost their substance are so wrong, when you do listen all the album you figure our they have grown a lot musically

    Scarecrows have a two-fold purpose: to protect (the plants/feild/crops etc... ) and to induce fear (into the crows/predators etc... )love is often a form of a security blanket or protection to people, just the same as war induces fear and is a predator to people. The scarecrow is a representation of how two factors are in conflict of each other and can reform the view of the world through the eyes of an innocent. The world in the song is one of destruction, gradually increasing in ruin yet relying on the stability and security that love provides. Love is often seen as the more unrealistic and dreamlike factor compared to war and it appears that in the chorus "everybody hide" is a reference to taking a realist approach to a situation or factor, automatically viewing the scarecrow as the predator, just the same as war is likely to be stronger focus than love.

    I've just noticed this song recently, and I love it like every other song from MCR! I think each song from them is telling what we want to be told, whatever that might be. Like someone already has said, this song, when speaking of the creators of this song, is about war, childhood, whatever. But according to me it's an individual thing, and to me it makes me calm and then I'm surely able to relax afterwards. Thanks for having a good time, MCR! I will always love you, no matter what!

    Meh. Maybe he was just testing the world to see who really pays attention to batman. I totally passed. Batman is amazing.
