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.

yea, i totally agree. wow, that's like me...that's how i interpreted it. i really love this song.

Well, it's about not being OK. About Gerard's experiences in HIGHSCHOOL. About everything going bad, wrong and stuff.

Sounds to me like he had a crush go waaaay wrong. Actually I think it was more than a crush... " I held you close as we both shook" sounds sexual to me.

Yeah! This song's self-explanatory. I'M NOT OKAY!
It's really about a young Gerard Way in high school. He had a friend who was a girl and he was really in love with her. But she went all skank with her boyfriend and they started taking stupid skank photos and THAT broke Gerard's heart and now, I know the poor girl regrets it.

I thought that this was the best explanation of it but really now, I thought everyone had this all figured out by now..

I am lik totally obessed with this song now.
Like I was watching the film clip at school.
It is so funny. I love it.
Like when Frankie gets shit chucked at him and he looks at Gee.
And he just shakes his head.
That used to me and my friends at school.
And how someone crash tackles Gee, I think it is him.
And Frankie is just there shaking HIS head. Then they all crash tackle the mascot.
I fucking love it. That stuff used to happen to me and my friends.
It doesn't as much now.
But, like, watching that makes it funny.
And also, this song helps me through my life SO FUCKING MUCH!
If I didn't have them to listen to I would go fucking mental.
Gerard always said he wanted his music to help people and change their life.
Well guess what Sweetie? It fucking does!
I LOVE THEM.

Yeah.
And made him have to resort to making out with Frankie.
Which is good.
So in a way I guess it is like Thank You for being a slut.
Stupid bitch. She can go die.

Like, I can't watch that film clip without laughing.

It's about being in a depression, and in that mental state, you feel like no one will understand you. Thus, you would not go to someone and say, "I'm not okay." It's basically a cry for help in a song.
And, like everyone knows, it's about that girl who took sleazy photos with her boyfriends. x)

chapped and faded.:
Liike. I didn't know about the Gerard thing.
Well.
All I can say is the girl is a complete LOSER x1000000000. >.<

i completely agree, man. i didnt know about the girl thing either. where did everyone get where he said that stuff? but poor gerard. he has gone through so much crap. not like we all havent though, either. but to put it into words and a song is cooler. and not just keep it all to yourself. but i am SOOO glad that gerard is happily married now!!!! lyn-z had better treat him well.
