You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison

May Death Never Stop You
rock emo my chemical romance alternative punk


The song is about a man who is involved in a crime ("In the middle of a gunfight, in the center of a restaurant"). He believes that the police will be unable to catch him ("Well they're never gonna get me, I'm like a bullet through a flock of doves"), but he is arrested and sent to prison. The rest of the song refers to prison life: "Will they give me the chair or lethal injection or swing from a rope if you dare." This refers to the thoughts of the prisoner. The line, "What they ask of you will make you want to say 'so long"' refers to him contemplating suicide and may also refer to prison rape and other abuse. Bert McCracken of The Used provides backup vocals during the second verse of the song, with one line being "Do you have the keys to the hotel? We're gonna start this motherfucker on fire!"

You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison - My Chemical Romance

In the middle of a gun fight
In the center of a restaurant
They say, "Come with your arms raised high"

Well they're never gonna get me
And like a bullet through a flock of doves
To wage this war against your faith in me

Your life will never be the same
On your mother's eyes say a prayer, say a prayer

Now, but I can't, and I don't know
How we're just two men as God had made us
Well I can't, well I can

Too much, too late or just not enough of this
Pain in my heart for your dying wish
I'll kiss your lips again

They all cheat at cards and the checkers are lost
My cell mate's a killer, they make me do push-ups in drag
But nobody cares if you're losing yourself, am I losing myself?

And well I miss my mom, will they give me the chair?
Or lethal injection or swing from a rope, if you dare
Oh, nobody knows all the trouble I've seen

Now, but I can't, and I don't know
How we're just two men as God had made us
Well I can't, well I can

Too much, too late or just not enough of this
Pain in my heart for your dying wish
I'll kiss your lips again

To your room, what they ask of you
Will make you want to say
So long, but I don't remember
Why remember you?

Do you have the keys to the hotel?
'Cause I'm gonna set this bastard motherfucker on fire, fire

Life is but a dream for the dead
And well I, I won't go down by myself
But I'll go down with my friends

Take it like a man
