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)

Here's my take on this lyrics (it's actually my very favorite line of MCR lyric)

I think it's about feeling like you're dead inside, yet trudging along every day, going through the motions, Breathing in and out, waking and sleeping. It's almost as if you've no reason to live but no reason to die either. It feels like your immortal in a sense that you aren't really LIVING.. merely existing... You're not physically dead.. but inside you are.

I have personally felt that way countless times. That's why its so important of a lyric to me. I related to this meaning.
