There might be something outside your window
But you'll just - never know
There could be something right past the turnpike gates
But you'll just - never know

If my velocity starts to make you sweat then just don't let go
And if their heaven ain't got a vacancy
Then we just, then we just, then we just, then we just
Get up and go

Ladies and gentlemen
Truth is now acceptable
Fame is now injectable
Process the progress
This core is critical, faith is unavailable
Lives become incredible
Now please understand that

I can't slow down, I won't be waiting for you
I can't stop now, because I'm dancing
This planet's ours to defend
Ain't got no time to pretend
Don't fuck around this is our last chance

If my velocity starts to make you sweat then just don't let go
Cause the emergency room got no vacancy
And we just, and we just, and we just, and we just
Get up and go!

Who they want you to be
Who they wanted to see
Kill the party with me and never go home
Who they want you to be
Who they wanted to see
Just leave the party with me
And never go home

You're unbelievable
Ah so unbelievable
Ah you ruin everything
Oh you better go home
I'm unbelievable, yeah I'm undefeatable
Yeah let's ruin everything, blast it to the back row

They sell presentable, young and so ingestible
Sterile and collectable
Safe and I can't stand it
This is a letter, my word is the berretta
The sound of my vendetta
Against the ones that planned it

If my velocity starts to make you sweat, then just don't let go
Cause the emergency room got no vacancy
Tell me who do you trust, do you trust
And we just get up and go!

Who they want you to be
Who they wanted to see
Kill the party with me and never go home
Who they want you to be
Who they wanted to see
Just leave the party with me and never go home

You keep eternity give us the radio
Deploy the battery, we're taking back control
Engage the energy, light up the effigy
No chance to take it slow
By now I'm sure you know, know, know, know, know
Get up and go!

Who they want you to be
Who they wanted to see
Kill the party with me and never go home
Who they want you to be
Who they wanted to see
Just leave the party with me and never go home

Are we still having fun?
Are you holding the gun?
Take the money and run, we'll never go home
I've got nothing to lose, you've got nothing to say
And we're leaving today
We'll never go home

Go home

I think this song is a primary part of the plot in which the Killjoys return to life
"And if their heaven's got no vacancy then we just get up and go"

I agree with the post above. It seems like it talks about life with BLI and the way everything is so controlled and 'fake':
"Truth is now acceptable
Fame is now injectable
Process the progress..."


The "never go home" part refers to how the Killjoys are always on the run.

"You're unbelievable
Ah so unbelievable
Ah you ruin everything
Oh you better go home"
//Seems to me like someone from BLI talking to/about the Killjoys.

"I'm unbelievable, yeah I'm undefeatable
Yeah let's ruin everything..."
//The Killjoys' reply to BLI.

Also, if my theory is right, in this song, the Killjoys become part of BLI Industries. Sort of 'one of them'. But then, towards the end (of the song) they 'break free'.
"we're taking back control"
"And we're leaving today"


One final note, Gerard said in an interview that the album has only a kind of "high concept". It doesn't have a clearly defined storyline so the songs have another meaning besides telling the Killjoy story. I guess this would be talking about how life has become so mainstream and materialistic.
"They sell presentable, young and so ingestible
Sterile and collectable"

And how My Chemical Romance is against it
" and I can't stand it"

Edit:
This video-interview with Mcr helps support the last bit of what I was saying. The relevant transcription:
Q:There are so many poetic lines on the record, and "Fame is now injectable" especially stands out. Was there anything significant about that line for you?

Gerard Way: That was big one for me. That was what I had been wanting to say. I wanted the lyrics to be direct but couldn't find my voice on that first attempt. I wanted them to be these slogans that you could put on a billboard or you could say as a pirate radio DJ. It's funny because all of the slogans are very interchangeable between the corporation, the DJ and the gangs. They're all using the same verbiage and language, yet it means something different depending on who's using it. "Fame is now injectable" was a really big line for me. There are few lines on the record that stand out. "Planetary (Go!)" has a lot of them. That's what I wanted say. I'm also saying, "Faith is unavailable" as well. I feel like that's the kind of world we live in right now. Fame is injectable, but faith is unavailable to us.

i think its about not letting people control you and not letting all this materialism take over your life, live life how you want

I don't really think that the song is about the Killjoys concept..for me it is the bands way of defying the rock world-essentially what they did was to write a pop song,and that isn't what most people would associate My Chemical Romance with.I think that the song isn't the Killjoys defying Bl/ind within the albums storyline,its My Chem defying the world by writing what they want rather that even what we the fans want.
Awesome song Smile

All the songs on Danger Days were written before they knew they were going to use the Killjoy concept.

Its a song that is loud and energetic. Its MCR's way of rebeling against the rock n' roll community by making a loud and fast dance song. Its completely original and has lots of awesome slogans (i.e. "Faith is Unavailable"Wink that can be relateable to almost anyone. Thats probably why I love the song so much because its like nothing I've ever heard from MCR before.

Gee's being so wonderfully open on his twitter about these songs : "Hahaha..."Planetary" is fucking awesome. Control room was like a rave when we did it. Prob the most "bold claims" of any lyrics I've written"

So even if we don't know what the song means at least we know it's bold!

I think it means that sometimes the world around us wants to stay trendy and be normal but sometimes things like this call us to be different to stand out to scream " i am a killjoy! " and not be afraid of what the outcome will be.
