i also think that when the lyrics change to "i'm okay" istead of "i'm not okay" thats its relating to pretending that everythings fine to cover up your real feelings. I also love the way that it perfectly decribes being in high school and feeling alone.

i agree with all of that. i think the deeper message in the song is about the girls gereard liked. a point everyone else missed is that its on an album entitled "three cheers for sweet revenge" and after someone breaks your heart you want them to feel your pain. not to mention the entire cd is based around love


oh yeah huh...

It's obviously about Gerard being the outkast in High School,. Coz he only had one friend and was always picked on.

this song is about a girl Gerard used to know who took disturbing pictures with her boyfriend and showed them to Gerard , this is a really strong song cause it is obvious that Gerard was a loner because he only had one friend in high school !!!! i know how it feels i only have to real friends because of how i dress and the music i listen to , so i really understand this song !! Crying or Very sad

Its about the girl gerard liked in high school and how she took dirty pics with her boyfriend. " the photographs your boyfriend took"
Literally, but figurativitly its about hiding how hurt you are and pretending your ok when really your dying inside, and are not ok.

Mine too.

Highschool sucks, lol.

Oh and yeah well it's obvious what this song is about. Being the loner in school and about that whole thing with Gerard and the girl he liked. HA I'd love to see her now. She probably totally regrets not giving him a chance. Hah.

This song is my anthem. It's like...about me, really.

I think it is about being left alone at high school or maybe even somwhere else. About being different, having different feelings and trying to hide them.
And that girl with her boyfriend of course...urgh.
