"Mama" can also be particularly wrenching. It's got that *very* My Chem, "and man, am I pissed!", gas-masks-and-angst thing going on - but you can't get away from the fact that it's about a boy going to war and struggling to come to terms with the fact that he's become a killer, and that his mother is going to have to accept that he probably won't come home.
Then there is "The Ghost of You". It's a very freakin' sad song, mkay?
The video, dear God. Specifically the look on Gerard's face as he watches Mikey die, and the fact that the others are literally dragging him back so he doesn't get shot too. It can really break one's heart.
The song "Cancer". "Because the hardest part of this is leaving you..."
Oh god, Cancer. If you've had a relative die from cancer than you really can relate.
The video to SING shows the situation this song is talking about in regards to the storyline of the album; Fun Ghoul (Frank) has a chance to get out of the building with Jet-Star (Ray) and Girl, but instead stays inside to, as the title says, hold the bad guys back.
See also: "Kill All Your Friends", "Cemetery Drive", and worst, "Demolition Lovers".
"Famous Last Words" also, and "Cancer" to most fans is this.
Especially considering it was the last song they played live. Meaning, "So long and good night" were the last lyrics they ever sang live.
Pity those who heard about the band because of their break up and then realize, halfway through their youtube binge, that they will never get to see them live.
From their last project "Conventional Weapons" in the third round "The world is ugly". It's not particulary depressing, but... it strikes a chord and leaves me bawling. Ugy balwing. This AND the fact I nevr get to see them live.
