  • They're these terrors, and its like
    It feels like as if somebody was gripping my
    They're theses terrors and its like
    It feels like as if somebody was gripping my throat

    Like last night, uh, they're not like tremors
    They're worse than tremors they're, they're theses terrors
    Like last night, uh, they're not like tremors
    They're worse than tremors they're, they're theses terrors

    And its like
    It feels like as if somebody was gripping my throat
    And squeezing and
    It feels like as if somebody was gripping my throat

    Some say, now suffer all the children
    And walk away a savior
    Or a madman and polluted
    From gutter institutions
    Don't you breathe for me
    Undeserving of your sympathy
    'Cause there ain't no way that I'm sorry for what I did

    And through it all
    How could you cry for me?
    'Cause I don't feel bad about it
    So shut your eyes
    Kiss me goodbye
    And sleep
    Just sleep

    The hardest part is letting go of your dreams

    A drink for the horror that I'm in
    For the good guys, and the bad guys
    For the monsters in our beds
    Three cheers for tyranny
    Unapologetic apathy
    'Cause there ain't no way that I'm coming back again

    And through it all
    How could you cry for me?
    'Cause I don't feel bad about it
    So shut your eyes
    Kiss me goodbye
    And sleep
    Just sleep

    The hardest part's the awful things that I've seen

    Sometimes I see flames and sometimes
    I see people that I love dying and, it's always

    Just sleep
    Just sleep
    Just sleep
    Just sleep
    Just sleep
    Just sleep

    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    And I can't, I can't ever wake up Writer/s: Bob Bryar, Frank Iero, Gerard Way, Michael Way, Ray Toro
