We Were Giants, Loveless - Welcome To The Black Parade lyrics

When I was a young boy, my father
Took me into the city to see a marching band
He said, "Son, when you grow up would you be
The savior of the broken
The beaten and the damned?"
He said, "Will you defeat them? Your demons
And all the non-believers
The plans that they have made?
Because one day, I'll leave you a phantom
To lead you in the summer
To join the black parade"

When I was a young boy, my father
Took me into the city to see a marching band
He said, "Son, when you grow up would you be
The savior of the broken
The beaten and the damned?"

Sometimes I get the feeling
She's watching over me
And other times I feel like I should go

And through it all, the rise and fall
The bodies in the streets
And when you're gone
We want you all to know

We'll carry on, we'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
And in my heart, I can't contain it
The anthem won't explain it

A world that sends you
Reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Let's shout it loud and clear
Defiant to the end we hear the call

To carry on, we'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches

On and on, we carry through the fears
(Oh, oh, oh)
Disappointed faces of your peers (Oh, oh, oh)
Take a look at me 'cause I
Could not care at all

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
I won't explain or say I'm sorry
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scars
Give a cheer for all the broken
Listen here, because it's who we are
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
Just a boy who had to sing this song
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
I don't care

We'll carry on, we'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches on

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
(We'll carry on)
Do or die, you'll never make me
(We'll carry on)
Because the world will never take my heart
(We'll carry on)
Go and try, you'll never break me
(We'll carry)
We want it all, we wanna play this part
(We'll carry on)

Кліп відображає пісню - показані рідні стіни, землю, наших людей та український колорит. Цей контраст між селом і містом, до безтями проймає за серце, за рідною людиною, яка зараз не поруч, але клята
