The first time I heard this song I wasn't in to MCR I just liked the song and considering I was young I didn't pay attention to who played it.But the song is basicly about Gerard and Mikey's grandma,Elena's death.I felt bad for them because thier grandma was important to them.

when someone dies, a person falls into deep depression, he thinks that he wants to follow that person to wherever he went. but decides he wants to remain the world after all, "well if you carry on this way, things are better if I stay."
I love this song, a great meaning.

This music really makes me feel weird...
Every time I listen, I feel a need to cry...
I know how it feels to lose someone you love so much...
This music is so f****** inspiring..........

I LOVE IT

Actually i've come to hear that this song is about a girl he was in love with that past away. They argued a lot! because of all the drugs and alcohol, so it got ugly. That's why he says " like the hearse you die to get in AGAIN" again because she's been hurt before in their relationship. When he says "and like the blade you stain, well i've been holdin on tonight", he talkin bout how he almost killed himself when she died, but didn't "things are better if I stay" he knew that not what she would've wanted. "Can we pretend to leave and then, we'll meet again when both our cars collide" He talkin bout how he wishes it was all a dream, or that life would just rewind and they would re-meet and he could stop it (he prays for it in the video). Then the balarina was because his GF loved to dance, I believe she was a balarina when she was a little girl. (It's most likely the girl he met in high school - I'm not okay-)

This ones easy!!
Its a tribute to Gerard and Mikeys Grandma Elena when she died, her friends called her 'Helena' as a nickname.
I also think this song was kinda like therepy for Gerard, Just like getting it out into the open to say like the final goodbye... Its a really sweet song! Very Happy

This was the first MCR song I ever saw the music video to, which I now watch about 3 or 4 times in a week.

AWWWW (runs ff sobbing for awhile)

(comes back) i wish i could hv been there 2 hug him!

i actually really resonate with the line, "What's the worst that I could say"...this may not be related to the song, but personally I think of it when i try to giv someone my condolences that their beloved has passed away, but then feel silly bcoz there's no way my puny words could make a dent in their grief at that moment. "Since it's better if I stay" ...it's kind of like, "i'll be there for you if u need anything, but im not going to whisper meaningless words of cmfort just for the sake of it"

just a side interpretation. feel free to shoot me down, but thats just what i feel. may not belong in this thread but its true
