When I was a young boy
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band

He said son when you grow up
Would you be the savior of the broken
The beaten and the damned?

He said will you defeat them
Your demons and all the non-believers
The plans that they have made?

Because one day I’ll leave you
A phantom to lead you in the summer
To join the black parade

WHEN I WAS A YOUNG BOY
MY FATHER TOOK ME INTO THE CITY
TO SEE A MARCHING BAND

HE SAID SON WHEN YOU GROW UP
WOULD YOU BE THE SAVIOR OF THE BROKEN
THE BEATEN AND THE DAMNED.

Sometimes I get the feeling
She’s watching over me
And other times I feel like I should go

When through it all the rise and fall
The bodies in the streets
And when you’re gone we want you all to know-

We’ll carry on…..We’ll carry on
And though you’re dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on…..We’ll carry on

And in my heart I can’t contain it
The anthem won’t explain it

A world that sends you reeling
From decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all

So paint it black….And take it back
Let’s shout it loud and clear
Defiant to the end we hear the call

To carry on….We’ll carry on
And though you’re dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on….We’ll carry on
And though you’re broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches

On and on we carry through the fears
Disappointed faces of your peers
Take a look at me
Cause I can not care at all

Do or die…..You’ll never make me
Because the world
Will never take my heart….Go and try
You’ll never break me
We want it all…We want to play this part

Wont explain or say i’m sorry
I’m unashamed
I’m gonna show my scar
You’re the chair, for all the broken
Listen here, because it’s only..
I’m just a man,….I’m not a hero
Just a boy, who’s wants to sing this song
Just a man,…I’m not a hero
I — don’t — care
We’ll Carry on….We’ll carry on
And though your dead and gone believe me Your memory will carry on….You’ll carry on
And though you’re broken and defeated You’re weary widow marches on

Do or die
You’ll never make me
Because the world
Will never take my heart
Go and try….You’ll never break me
We want it all….We want to play this part

Do or die
You’ll never make me
Because the world
Will never take my heart
Go and try…You’ll never break me
We want it all….We want to play this part.
