from what ive heard, it was a discontinued song from three cheers for sweet revenge following the story of the 2 lovers on the cover of the cd. after everything that happens on the cd, they die in the desert, hence the name desert song

i think that its about someone who lost someone very close and then they begin to suffer.

from backstage to the doctor = the suffering as begun

from the earth to the morgue = it probably means that the person lived then died

we hold in our hearts = that person will always remember that person who died

i can see you awake.....in my mind = the dead guy will always be with the person who is still alive.

I think it's like Gerard inviting someone to a one person show.
Like, he's just rockin out for the dead, for that one special person.
A loved person.
Maybe he's talking in the man's point of view, since its the main song on LOTMS, and it's like the man is mourning his love, and he's describing his pain and suffering. He just wants to sing her one last song, and just rock out for the dead.

Did we all fall down?
From the lights to the pavement
From the van to the floor
From backstage to the doctor
From the Earth to the morgue


This section reminds me of a video someone sent me of Gerard- drunk, because they thought it would be funny.

Did we all fall down? this bit illustrates his confusion.
From the lights to the pavement He's off-stage now.
From the van to the floor He's been drinking in the van and fallen to the floor.
From backstage to the doctor He's been taken to the doctor.
From the Earth to the morgue He's gone.

lol, this is just the way I see it. I think it's pretty much what everyone else has said though...

I'm not sure if I read this here, or if I thought it up, but I think that

From the lights to the pavement, from the van to the floor
From backstage to the doctor, from the earth to the morgue

is illustrating how the drinking/drug problem worsened. It started with him getting drunk and collapsing on the sidewalk (go to youtube.com and look up "drunk gerard" ). Eventually his problem spilled out into his performance, and he would collapse in the van. It's not hard to imagine that "backstage to the doctor" means that during or after a performance, he might have been in such bad shape he needed a doctor. Eventually, "earth to the morgue"--it's gonna kill him if he keeps it up.

Beautiful song...

well, i personally think that it's about the band. like how there lives were going, the lyrics: "well tonight, will it ever come? spend the rest of our days rockin out." tonihgt reffers that the band just wants to get the gig over with that night and the reso of our lives part means that they intend to do this for the rest of their days.

anyone else agree?

Hey, I was just checking out the board under "Ghost of You," and they said there that the song played backwards is a completely different song. I looked it up on youtube, and there's a video with lyrics for it. "Desert Song" is another one, and it seems to go along with the Demolition Lovers plot. If you want to hear "Desert Song" backwards, go to youtube.com, and watch the video (version 2--better audio).

it's a beautiful song. in the song, i think he is either talking to himself or the dead.
spending the rest of your days
rockin out just for the dead

he's waiting to be dead.
well, tonight
will it ever come?

that's what i think.

Ava Adore.:
Gerard is just good at making metaphors.

And I hate the whole idea of this board (sorry Dujo) because metaphors are meant to speak to somebody in a way that they believe means the most to them.

If we can relate to them, thats great, but Gerard writes the songs for himself, not just the fans, meaning,

Gerard is the only one that knows the exact meanings.


Yeah! Gerard has a great imagenation, and we can obviously see how much effort he has done to make it like this.
Its a very metaphoric and interesting song... I love it!

I think that this song is about death...mostly about loosing someone who is dear and close to you. The first time I heard the line "I can see you awake, anytime, in my head..." Thats what popped into my mind. Someone important was very lost, but if you try hard enough, and if you think of them, they can be with you.

I freakin love this song.

Gerard isn't the only one
who writes the songs, it get so miss interepreted
because he's the front man. but anyways ..
i think this song is about carrying on, even though
everything has in your life has been taken away from
you or youve lost it in some form or another.

I think it's about Gerard realizing he's killing himself slowly with his drug and alcohol addiction...

Suide_n_her_gothnss:
i think that Gerard is doing this like another tribute to his gramgram but he is like telling her what he's been through since shes been dead and like how he's fallen so much and when he says from the earth to the morgue he means leaving the earth is his old alcoholic and drugged self and entering the morgue to reach another spiritual point in his life is the brand new gerard trying to reach her better to sorta ask her to be closer in spirit
<just my opinion>


I really like this answer
Maybe this is what the song is talking about
It makes sense

This song is creepy. I think of a secret underground hospital where "doctors" butcher "patients" mercilessly, and toy around with their bodies for some sort of sick twisted fun. This could be about witnessing a death. It seems to go with the desert death.

Reminds me of a platinum desert...a fantasy place where everyone's dead...man, something's wrong with me.

Honest thoughts from a dead boy,
