You're not in this alone
Let me break this awkward silence
Let me go, go on record
Be the first to say I'm sorry
Hear me out
And if you take me down
Would you lay me out
And if the world needs something better
Let's give them one more reason now, now, now

We walk in single file
We light up rails and punch our time
Ride escalators colder than a cell

[Chorus]
This broken city sky, like butane on my skin
Stolen from my eyes
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
Tell me where we go from here
This broken city sky like butane on my skin
Stolen from my eyes
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
Tell me where we go from here

Tell, me we go from

And in this moment we can't close the lids on burning eyes
Our memories blanket us with friends we know, like fallout vapor
Steel corpses stretch out towards and ending sun, scorched and black
It reaches in and tears your flesh apart
As ice cold hands rip into your heart
That's if you've still got one that's left
Inside that cave you call a chest (cave you call a chest)
And after seeing what we saw, can we still reclaim our innocence
And if the world needs something better
Let's give them one more reason now

[Chorus]
This broken city sky like butane on my skin
Stolen from my eyes
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
Tell me where we go from here
This broken city sky like butane on my skin
Stolen from my eyes
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
Tell me where we go from here

Tell, me we go from here

    Yeah... this is the song Gerard wrote to help him deal with 9/11. I guess that he was so close that he could see people falling from the building and everything, real big impact on him. And I'm fairly sure that this was the very first song written for My Chemical Romance.
