  • Are y'all ready where you are?
    Are y'all ready where you are?
    Are y'all ready where you are?

    Na na na na na, na na na na na
    Na na na na na, na na na na na

    Right now

    I hope you're ready for a firefight
    'Cause the devil's got your number tonight (they say)
    We're never leaving this place alive
    But if we sing these words we'll never die

    Get off the ledge and drop the knife
    Not a victim of a victim's life
    Because this ain't a room full of suicides
    We're believers, I believe tonight

    We could leave this world, leave it all behind
    We could steal this car if your folks don't mind
    We could live forever if you've got the time

    Na na na na na, na na na na na (if you save yourself tonight)
    Na na na na na, na na na na na (if you save yourself tonight)

    I'll tell you all how the story ends
    Where the good guys die and the bad guys win (who cares)
    It ain't about all the friends you've made
    But the graffiti they write on your grave

    And all of us who've seen the light
    Salute the dead and lead the fight
    Who gives a damn if we lose the war
    Let the walls come down
    Let the engines roar

    We could leave this world, leave it all behind
    We could steal this car if your folks don't mind
    We could live forever if you've got the time, oh, oh, oh
    I'm the only friend that makes you cry
    You're a heart attack in black hair dye
    So just save yourself and I'll hold them back tonight

    Are y'all ready where you are?
    If you save yourself tonight
    'Cause they're coming for you
    Can you save yourself tonight?

    Right now

    Cannot hold them back

    We could leave this world, leave it all behind
    We could steal this car if your folks don't mind
    We could live forever if you've got the time

    You motherfucker (whoa)

    Through the broken glass and the morning light,
    Be a burning star if it takes all night
    So just save yourself I'll hold them back tonight

    Na na na na na, na na na na na (if you save yourself tonight)
    Na na na na na, na na na na na (can you save yourself tonight?) Writer/s: BOB BRYAR, FRANK IERO, GERARD WAY, MICHAEL WAY, RAY TORO
