...And when the lights all went out
We watched our lives on the screen
I hate the ending myself,
But it started with an alright scene

I love these lines. The meaning is pretty clear: the beginning of our life was turning out great, but it went downhill from there. If we took it according to the story of TBP, it would be about the Patient giving up on everything and eventually dying. And because of that, this song makes me think of all the wrongs I've done in my life, and if it ended now: would I be happy about it? Would I think the life I lived was worthwhile? These lines always remind me that, after looking back for a short period of time, I should always remember to look forward, too, and always try to live my life to the fullest. Although the message is represented by the band so many other times, these lyrics really stand out to me because of the way they are presented in the song.

Wow, I think the exact same thing. Like looking back at your life and how you might not be satisfied with how it ended up...

As said before, I think the same thing about these lyrics.
And everytime I play the song I also think to myself, "Would I be happy about dying right now?" "Did I live to the fullest?"

My Chemical Romance helps me live my life and for it to be worthwhile.

My thoughts (which are lame as usual):

I honestly think it's about how when you have a dream of something big you want to do you can see it all in your head and it looks fantastic but as you start living that dream, or trying to live that dream you find that it doesn't quite look the way you thought it would. It's a harder road or there are things you have to sacrifice that you never thought you would have to. The idea of it.. the beginning looked good but the ending.. the reality isnt' looking so good.
