Album: The Black Parade (2006)
  • Now come one come all to this tragic affair
    Wipe off that makeup, what's in is despair
    So throw on the black dress, mix in with the lot
    You might wake up and notice you're someone you're not

    If you look in the mirror and don't like what you see
    You can find out firsthand what it's like to be me
    So gather 'round piggies and kiss this goodbye
    I'd encourage your smiles I'll expect you won't cry

    Another contusion, my funeral jag
    Here's my resignation, I'll serve it in drag
    You've got front row seats to the penitence ball
    When I grow up I want to be nothing at all

    I said yeah, yeah
    I said yeah, yeah

    Come on, come on, come on I said
    (Save me) get me the hell out of here
    (Save me) too young to die and my dear
    (You can't) if you can hear me just walk away and
    (Take me) Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Indigo from Adelaide, AustraliaI always thought it was called Father until i bought the actual cd and it was changed to The End. i love this song and the story that goes with the whole album. this song sounds great live, but the version on the video here isn't as good.
  • Brad from Lexington, KyThis song sounds very similar to the opening track of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album, "In the Flesh", but this was probably intentional.
