My Chemical Romance – The Kids From Yesterday lyrics

Now this could be the last of all the rides we take
So hold on tight and don't look back
We don't care about the message or the rules they make
I'll find you when the sun goes black

And you only live forever in the lights you make
When we were young we used to say
That you only hear the music when your heart begins to break
Now we are the kids from yesterday

All the cameras watch the accidents and stars you hate
They only care if you can bleed
Does the television make you feel the pills you ate?
Or
every person that you need to be

Cause you only live forever in the lights you make
When we were young we used to say
That you only hear the music when your heart begins to break
Now we are the kids from yesterday

Today, today
We are the kids from yesterday
Today, today

Here we are and we won't stop breathing
Yell it out 'til your heart stops beating

We are the kids from yesterday
Today

Cause you only live forever in the lights you make
When we were young we used to say
That you only hear the music when your heart begins to break
Now we are the kids from yesterday
We are the kids from yesterday
We are the kids from yesterday
We are the kids from yesterday
Today, today

    "you only live forever in the lights you make"
    You only "live on" if you've made a point across to the world. Once you're dead and everyone who knows you are dead, then no one will know who you were. Unless, you make a point and somehow the world remembers you years after you've died.
    "when we were young we used to say"
    when they were young, obviously that means when they were young. "that you only hear the music when your heart begins to break"
    the first time you truely understand the depth of music and feel like someone understands you out there, that's when you've had heart broken. "now we are the kids from yesterday"
    now they are older and they are just of the past.

    Omg, this song is just unbelievably awesome. I agree with the comments about how mcr are the kids from yesterday, 'today'. I dread the thought that there is a meaning in here that there's some sort of finality to their work. Some of the lines in this track are just class - here's a thought - I want a tattoo of one of the lines on my neck and can't make up my mind which one to go for! They're all just so amazing. Anyone help? What would you guys go for? My front runner at the moment is the first two lines, but then I keep changing my mind. Maybe i'll get the whole song done!

    I think this song is about living life. Living life and never looking back, because you never know what's going to happen next. This song is for every single killjoy out there, whether you're just an outcast and a reject, or whether you're the person that everyone loves. This is about being whoever you are, no matter what, and being totally fearless about it. That's just what I think- and yeah, I know, I just practically said like three gee quotes. But no one can really explain these things better than him.

    It makes me cry because I think of all my friends that are now 200 miles away since I moved and this reminds me of all the fun I used to have with them. My chemical romance are truly amazing talented people who can make me laugh cry and get goose bumbs all in the space of 5 minutes. If it wasn't for them, god knows where I would be right now. If I ever met them all I would be able to say is thank you, you saved my life.

    This is a brilliant song, and even though it means so much to all us fans, I think mcr really wrote it for themselves: they're saying how much they've matured and grown and changed over the years, but they can still be the same people. Gerard and frank becoming fathers (it's so sweet, I'm proud even though I don't know them personally) had something to do with it, as they are saying they're really not kids any more, but they can still have an impact on kids' lives. They sure saved mine! Great!
