There-there's these terrors
And it's like, it feels like as if
Somebody was gripping my
There's these terrors
And it's like, it feels like as if
Somebody was gripping my throat
Uh, they're not like tremors
They're worse than tremors
There-there's these terrors
Like last night
Uh, they're not like tremors
They're worse than tremors
They're-there's these terrors
And it's like, it feels like as if
Somebody was gripping my throat
And squeazing and I felt
Like as if somebody was gripping my throat

Some say
Now suffer all the children
And walk away a savior
Or a madman and polluted

From gutter institutions
Don't you breathe for me
Undeserving of your sympathy
'Cause there ain't no way that I'm sorry
For what I did

And through it all
How could you cry for me?
'Cause I don't feel bad about it
So shut your eyes
Kiss me goodbye
And

Sleep
Just sleep
The hardest part
Is letting go of
Your dreams

A drink
For the horror that I'm in
For the good guys and the bad guys
For the monsters that I've been
Three cheers for tyranny
Unapologetic empathy
'Cause there is no way that I'm coming back again

And through it all
How could you cry for me
'Cause I don't feel bad about it
So shut your eyes
Kiss me goodbye
And

Sleep
Just sleep
The hardest parts
The awful things that
I've seen

Sometimes I see flames
And sometimes I see people that I love dying
And it's always-
I see flames and I-

Just sleep

And it's always

Just sleep
Just sleep
Just sleep
Just sleep
Just sleep

And I can't
I can't ever wake up

    This is what some guy said on a YouTube video. Not sure if this is what happened, that's why I came here to see if it was true:.
    "i love this song. It's really interesting, and i did some really good research on this. What i found (if you trust the internet of course) is that mcr went to paramore mansion. It was a haunted place. In the beginning it states the man feels as if he's being choked. While gerard was staying, he felt someone choking him. It also states "i see people that I love dying. " well it turns out, mikey dreamt of his family dying.  quite interesting, and a very catchy tune as well. ♥.

    When I heard Gerard Way explaining the meaning of the album he mentioned that the patient goes on a journey after the black parade comes to get him. He meets characters along the way who share their experiences with him. In my opinion this song is about one of these characters. This one is a man who has been executed for his crimes. The more I listen to these songs, the deeper the meanings get. It can be quite profound in the middle of the night.

    Seeing his past self. Maybe he was a troubled child and you can walk away from the dump of your children ok or not ok. That he can drink away or sleep away the pain but can never really run away. Maybe he has an alter ego(s) and has a temper that can be a bad guy or a good guy. Or maybe it was one of his parents that was a good guy or bad guy and you can never really know in this world. That he has sinned and sorry for it and what he's done to the world. Perhaps it's a suicide note 'and there ain't no way I'm coming back again\'.

    In the first and before anything I wanna say iam agree with massakurr23, In the beginning he says "Now suffer all the children" not save. And I wanna say I think its about a child that sufferd becase of a bad man he says about suffering and in the bieginig he say I always hope that someone come and rescue me and then it say about madman that suffer him and polluted streets and then he say I don't need you're sympathy becase I didn't do something wrong and I forgive you so Sleep then it say what the bad man say(A drink for. Coming back again)
    Well its my idea sorry if it's any mistake in my comment. English is my 2 Language.
