I think its about Gerard and the girl he had a crush on
That she was dirty and that her boyfriend took *Photos* of her
Gerard didn't like that
He thought she wasn't like that
So He's not ofuckingkay lol

Its about the girl he had a huge crush on
who took dirty pics with her boyfriend obviously.
I think it also has to do with how sucky his high school years were.
Every MCR fan knows how bad he had it in HS.

Well, i believe that he's telling you of how he went through high school, and there was this girl he really liked, who took demeaning photos of herself with her boyfriend who obviously wasn't Gerard.
but great song, great songVery Happy

It's about not being okay, through the trauma of everything Gerard has faced, just generally not being okay.

The song i'm not okay is about when Gerard was in high school and he was in love with his best friend but she broke his heart by taking some really scadalous pictures with her boyfriend. So in the song is saying that he is going to be honest and just come out and say he is not ok!!!!!

This song reminds me of me right now. Some of my friends are complete idiots and it frustrates me that I still hang out with them and I hate how awkward and stupid and fake middle school is. Just 4 more months and I'll be in highschool. Is there anyone here who can help me survive that long before I lose my freaking mind?

I'm not okay always seemed to me to be about feeling depressed ans desperately wanting help, but just can't figure out how to let anyone know

even though I know Gerard wrote this because of a girl, I believe it's about that even though you say you're okay, it doesn't mean it(I'm okay, trust me. I'm not okay!) and your friends may say they know you, but they don't really(you said you read me like a book, but the pages are all thorn and frayed now).

Personally I think it's about throwing away precautions and just yelling how you really feel. Because normally you just plaster a smile on your face and say you're fine. This song while telling you to say hwo you really feel shows you that others feel the same way. They want to hide how they feel yet they still shout it to the world.

Sorry if that's not what it actually means but this is what I feel it means

I think it's about not fitting in, being an outsider, being bullied for it, being picked on by the popular kids, and, towards the end of the official music video, eventually overcoming it.
