Album: The Black Parade (2006)
  • And if your heart stops beating
    I'll be here wondering
    Did you get what you deserve?
    The ending of your life

    And if you get to heaven
    I'll be here waiting, baby

    Did you get what you deserve?
    The end and if your life won't wait
    Then your heart can't take this

    Have you heard the news that you're dead?
    No one ever had much nice to say
    I think they never liked you anyway
    Oh take me from the hospital bed
    Wouldn't it be grand ain't it exactly what you planned
    And wouldn't it be great if we were dead

    Oh dead

    Tongue tied and oh so squeamish
    You never fell in love
    Did you get what you deserve?
    The ending of your life

    And if you get to heaven
    I'll be here waiting, baby
    Did you get what you deserve?
    The end and if your life won't wait
    Then your heart can't take this

    Have you heard the news that you're dead
    No one ever had much nice to say
    I think they never liked you anyway

    Oh take me from the hospital bed
    Wouldn't it be grand
    To take a pistol by the hand
    And wouldn't it be great if we were dead

    And in my honest observation
    During this operation
    Found a complication
    In your heart, so long
    'Cause now you've got
    Maybe just two weeks to live
    Is that the most the both of you can give?

    One two,
    One two three four
    La la la la la
    La la la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    Well come on
    La la la la la
    La la la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    Oh motherfucker

    If life ain't just a joke
    Then why are we laughing?
    If life ain't just a joke
    Then why are we laughing?
    If life ain't just a joke
    Then why are we laughing?
    If life ain't just a joke
    Then why am I dead?

  • Oskari from Turku, FinlandBut The Patient doesn't die until Welcome To The Black Parade. Personally I think it's about someone close to The Patient who has died so he's probably just lying in the hospital bed and thinking: "We'll be together again soon."
  • M from Asdfjkl;, IlI think the song is about how people kill themselves like " no one ever had much nice to say i think they never liked you anyway," but it could also means other things too.
  • Punkgal from Leeds, United Kingdomthe guy doesnt realize hes dead... this is kinda like dude your dead
  • Angela from Cartersville, Georgiai agree with larissa, i think thats what the song can also mean and its sorta sad
  • Larissa from Blue Mountains, Australiaitcan also be interpreted as saying someone is dead to you. "did you know you were dead?" plus "you banned me from the hospital bed"
