My Chemical Romance – It's Not A Fashion Statement, It's A Deathwish lyrics

For what you did to me
Or what I'll do to you
You get what everyone else gets
You get a lifetime!

Let's go!

Do you remember back then when we met
You told me this gets harder
Well it did
Been holding on forever
Promise me that when I'm gone
You'll kill my enemies
The damage you've inflicted
Temporary wounds
I'm coming back from the dead
And I'll take you home with me
I'm taking back the life you stole

We never got that far
This helps me to think all through the night
Bright lights that won't kill me now
Or tell me how
Just you and I
Your starless eyes remain

Hip-hip-hooray for me
You talk to me
But would you kill me in my sleep
Lay still like the dead
From the razor to the rosary
We could lose ourselves and paint these walls in pitchfork red
I will avenge my ghost with every breath I take
I'm coming back from the dead
And I'll take you home with me
I'm taking back the life you stole

This hole you put me in
Wasn't deep enough
And I'm climbing out right now
You're running out of places
To hide from me

When you go
Just know that I will remember you
If Living was the hardest part
We'll then one day be together
And in the end we'll fall apart
Just like the leaves change in color
And then I will be with you
I will be there one last time now
When you go
Just know that I will remember you

I've Lost my fear of falling
I will be with you
I will be with you

    Well. I think the guy was in love with the girl, but she killed him.
    "this hole you put me in, wasnt deep enough, and im climbing out right now" think. Hole you put me in = grave. And now hes coming back so they can be together once again. It even says it in the beginning of the song. Haha.
    I really do love this song. Mcr helped me through a lot, and taught me many lessons. They put their heart and soul into their music unlike most music nowadays. Anyways awesome song.

    Well, according to the band, this album is the continuation of the previous album. In this scene, the men who was killed by her love in the previous album, returns from hell for her love. To get revenge. In this song in particularly, I think the man has found his love/killer and tells her, practically, that for everything that she did to him, she will get a lifetime (of suffering, I'll guess). And according to what the song's lyrics tells us, is pretty much a similar story, a guy gets killed [?] and comes back from the dead, to "take her home with him" and "take back the life she stole". And the part when he "Climbs out of the hole she put him in" (that wasn't deep enough, apparently) probably means that this woman tricked him (she doesn't want to face the guy, obviously), but it didn't work and now she's "running out of places to hide from him". Anyway, I would guess, by how the song ends, that the two lovers, finally met again, and will me together (maybe not the best idea, but wth.)
    It's a great song, one of my favorites, btw.
