how wrong we were to think that immortality meant never dying

most people that i've talked about this line with don't understand it. "immortality does mean never dying" personally, i think losing someone you really care about helps you understand the lyric. my mom died 11 years ago and i still think of her every day. whenever i think about her, this lyric runs through my head... i was curious what others thought of the lyric (people who don't dismiss it as some emo dude trying to be existential)
Current Mood: hopeful
Current Music: buck o nine - round kid

This is my favorite MCR line. It is getting inked on me somewhere.

Personally to me, it means being so dead inside that you don't think you have anything left to live for. But, dying wouldn't make anything better. You would just be pysically dead, but never dead to the others that were in your life and cared about you. To them, you live and are immortal.
