My Chemical Romance - Dead!

[Verse 1]
And if your heart stops beating,
I'll be here wondering;
Did you get what you deserve?
The ending of your life.

[Pre-Chorus]
And if you get to Heaven,
I'll be here waiting, babe,
Did you get what you deserve?
The end, and if your life won't wait,
Then your heart can't take this!

[Chorus:]
Have you heard the news that you're dead?
No one ever had much nice to say,
I think they never liked you anyway.
Oh, take me from the hospital bed!
Wouldn't it be grand?
It ain't exactly what you planned,
And wouldn't it be great if
We were dead.
Oh, dead.

[Verse 2]
Tongue-tied and oh-so squeamish,
You never fell in love,
Did you get what you deserve?
The ending of your life.

[Pre-Chorus]
And if you get to Heaven,
I'll be here waiting, babe;
Did you get what you deserve?
The end and if your life won't wait,
Then your heart can't take this!

[Chorus:]
Have you heard the news that you're dead?
No one ever had much nice to say,
I think they never liked you anyway.
Oh, take me from the hospital bed!
Wouldn't it be grand to take a pistol by the hand,
And wouldn't it be great if we were dead?

[Hook]
And in my honest observation,
During this operation,
Found a complication,
In your heart, so long.
'Cause now you've got,
Maybe just two weeks to live,
I said, "Is that the most the both of you can give?!"


(Guitar solo)

[Bridge]
One, two,
One, two, three, four!
La la la la la,
La la la la la la,
La la la la la la la.
Well c'mon,
La la la la la,
La la la la l'oh la,
La la la la la la la.

(Continue lalala)

Oh, motherfucker
If life ain't just a joke
Then why are we laughing?
If life ain't just a joke
Then why are we laughing?
If life ain't just a joke
Then why are we laughing?
If life ain't just a joke
Then why am I dead?

[Outro]
Dead!

On “Dead!”, Gerard Way takes on the roles of Mother War, The Patient, and the doctor, setting up the rest of the album to be a journey through The Patient’s final two weeks of battling cancer. The lyrics in “Dead!” are kept strictly to the concept of the album, but it’s possible the song could have multiple meanings. The song tells about The Patient having cancer with just two weeks to live. Gerard Way plays the roles of himself, the doctor, and The Patient.
