Don't be so down on her. People make bad choices, thinking they can trust someone and they can't. Plus that was awhile ago, and I don't get the feeling that Gerard wrote the song so that we would hate her (but maybe I'm wrong about that one).

to the person who said they should get over their problems and move on... UM HELLO IF THEY DID THAT WHERE THE HELL WOULD THEIR INSPIRATION COME FROM?!?!? mcr's point is to share their feelings and sorrows, not be all jolly and happy and whatever, in case you didnt notice, THEY LIKE BLACK.

still rock anyways XD

by the way, wherever that f**kn chik is, lets shoot her! omfg.

Hester Pryne:
Blue_Demon:
Personally I feel that it's also to do with teenager's today as well; or people in general now that I think about it, who say that they are Okay, and that they feel fine ect; when deep down they aren't okay, there not fine, they are really depressed and need to talk to someone but they don't know who they can talk to without feeling like they might betray them in some way.


Definitely. When you're depressed you wonder what would happen if, when someone asked you how you're doing you, you actually told them, because the only thing anyon expects to hear is "Fine, and you?"


Yeah, I think that's exactly what this songis about. I mean, sure, he wrote this because he had all these feelings about this girl who took sleazy pictures with her boyfriend, but it's really... I cry for help, no, I don't know, but as you said, Hester_Pryne, if somebody ask you 'how are you?' you just say 'fine, and how are you?' because the person who asked is not expecting another answer. If you would say 'I feel like shit, I don't know how I'm going to survive this week' that person would only feel uncomfortable and don't know how to handle the situation. It's like society doesn't accept people that aren't okay and happy.

Well if you wanted honesty, that's all you had to say
I never want to let you down or have you go
It's better off this way

Maybe I'm thinking all wrong but about this lyric I think that, well hey, if you really, REALLY wanted to know how I was, you just had to tell me that. I just didn't say anything beacuase I didn't want to mess up what we had. It's better if I just pretend everything is fine. But I'm sorry that I hurt you, I didn't want to.
I don't know, maybe you really care about the person you sing this to, but this person... Doesn't really see you, or hear you. 'What will it take to show you that it's not the life it seems?' What do I have to do to make you understand?

Jeez, this became really fucked up, probably no one will understand but I just had to write something about this song.

i think that this song is about Gerard's thoughts while going through depression in highschool. but i also think that anyone who is going through depression can relate to this song,

I don't know why any of you are being so harsh to the girl. Gerard really liked her so she was proberly nice to him but she was dating a popular jock so he could never tell her how much he really liked her. When the photographs came out, she was proberly shamed and got dirty looks from people at school and Gerard wished he could have been there for her, this made him angry and upset. He was gutted that she had been used and exploited in this way. And it pained him because he knew he could never be close to her as she was one of the popular crowd.

This song is like the teenage anthem for God sake! It applies to everyone at some point in their sad life!

Bit like I think 'Famous Last Words' should be an anti-bullying anthem____hehe
