When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.

He said
"Son when you grow up,
Would you be the savior of the broken,
The beaten, and the damned?"

He said
"Will you defeat them,
Your demons and all the non-believers,
The plans that they have made?

Because one day
I'll leave you;
A phantom
To lead you in the summer,
To join the black parade."

Sometimes I get the feeling
She's watching over me.
And other times I feel like I should go.
When through it all,
The rise and fall,
The bodies in the streets,
And when you're gone we want you all to know.

We'll carry on,
We'll carry on,
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on,
You'll carry on,
And in my heart I can't contain it,
The anthem won't explain it.

A world that sends you reeling
From decimated dreams.
Your misery and hate will kill us all.
So paint it black and take it back,
Let's shout it loud and clear.
Do you fight it to the end, we hear the call

To carry on.
We'll carry on,
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will
Carry on.
You'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated,
You're weary widow marches,

On and on we carry through the fears.
Ohhhhh

Dissapointed faces of your peers.
Ohhhhh

Take a look at me,
'Cause I could not care at all.

Do or die, you'll never make me.
Because the world will never take my heart.
And though you try, you'll never break me.
We want it all, we wanna play this part.

I won't explain, or say I'm sorry.
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scar.
Give a cheer, for all the broken.
Listen here, because it's only...

I'm just a man, I'm not a hero.
Just a boy, who wants to sing this song.
Just a man, I'm not a hero.
I - don't - care.

We'll carry on.
We'll carry on,
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will
Carry on.
You'll carry on,
And though you're broken and defeated,
You're weary widow marches on

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world, will never take my heart.
And though you try, you'll never break me.
We want it all, (We'll carry on) we wanna play this part.

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world, (We'll carry on) will never take my heart.
And though you try, you'll never break me.
We want it all, (We'll carry on) we wanna play this part.
