Like a rush shot through you,
Everyone is watching (watching) you.
Told you why I see no need for the sun,
(I found a reason to say)
A love you light is a love soon gone,
If this is it,
Don't bother cause this love is a lie.
I'm a chemical kid,
You're a mechanical bride.

When every vein is red out of the blue,
I held a diamond to the sun to count the moments on account of the way you
Smile, smile for me.
Oh, we're in slow motion when you,
Smile, smile for me.

But oh my God I've been looking,
But I still hold your breath so you won't leave.
Pastel red and porn star white ,
Ghost on the altar, we breathe, don't leave.

Say that the night sings alone,
And if there's a God then I'm letting Him go,
All for you,

You alone,
Raise my hands,
At the thought of you leaving me alone...
(Light Fires, light fires, light fires, all, damn, day! )

Don't torture me, or beg me.
Can you make me believe in tiring?
As you fall fast asleep it reminds me,
Of the slow symphonies behind me.

(They sing along)
All the nightmares you'll see tomorrow,
All the stars on your ceiling they glow,
But not for you.
Through the trees I'll blow

    This song means that love is a lie and were basically lying to each other that we love each other when were just obsess , i guess . Love doesnt exist nor does it last . And when someone gets hurt , basically what she or he does is have all those memories crowded in his or hers mind that maybe one day he or she will get back with him or her and love him or her like no other ..

    Its basically like about falling in love with the wrong person, how much it hurts. The song is trying to tell us how much love can hurt us when its wrong, but when its right its worth it, i do believe in love but barely. Its a scary topic to be honest. Very feared, because it can make you lose your mind. But there is one thing stronger than fear and that is hope

    I think that it's about someone who's love is real (the chemical) who loves someone who's love is just a lie (the mechanical). But he doesn't want to give up on her , cuz he finally found someone he loves so much. He doesn't care that she doesn't really love him.

    I think it means that the chemical kids had a lot of problems in the past so he is complicated like a chemical. And the machanical bride is like a robot, she is programming her self to be exactly what the chemical kid want so he will love her do she can finally prove to her self that some does love her.

    The chemical kid is the one who obsesses and tries to prove to the mechanical bride that kid loves bride, but the mechanical bride has suffered through so much pain, bride doesn't believe it. As soon as bride sees that kid is obsessing for bride, bride realizes the love is a lie. And the chemical kid is vic, wondering what if i still care about you? Can you make me believe that you aren't really as incredible as i think you are? As you, a mechanical bride, refuse to see your own beauty and fall fast asleep, it reminds me of my past and yours, the pain we've endured and how this means we'll never be together.
