My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from New Jersey. Even though they decided to explore different things in 2013 the Black Parade will Carry On!


Teenagers was the anthem of all alternative bar / pubs and almost everyone sang along, even if they weren’t in the rock scene. The lyrics to the song would seem self explanatory but it goes deeper than that.

It explains how society wants teenagers to conform to their standards and way of living even knowing that it is a lie with all the lies in the books. Remember that History is always written by the winning party, which makes you think how true is it really…but i digress.

Society seems is so paranoid and hung up on what teenagers or the young generation do that they will try anything to keep them from rebelling, even turn to medicate them. If that doesn’t work, they will try to destroy your ambitions They gonna rip up your heads Your aspirations to shreds. By telling you that you need to work hard for what you want, a 9 to 5 job, work your way up, no one starts at the top, you begin to believe it and not try to test it, your ambition slowly fading.

Truthfully, the reason they would go through this method is because they are scared of the new generations. These new ideas, way of thinking, energy is frighting to them the fear of the unknown which they see as a threat.

Then of course, as it goes, someone will snap. If you don’t fit in at school and society is trying to kill your spirit where is there to go? To who can you turn to..it is then where this line fits in  But if you’re troubled and hurt, What you got under your shirt Will make them pay for the things that they did. And once again Teenagers scare the living shit out of me as if it is their own fault that they took these extreme measures.

It is an endless cycle, society believes teenagers or any new generation poses a threat to them, and instead of hearing them out or just being open minded to what they have to offer, they want to conform them. By restricting their free spirit and down playing their ambitions, it is no wonder they feel like they are about to implode.

Be open minded, listen to understand, communicate to learn and see the value of each individual because we all matter.

 


Artist: My Chemical Romance

Song: Teenagers

They’re gonna clean up your looks
With all the lies in the books
To make a citizen out of you
Because they sleep with a gun
And keep an eye on you, son
So they can watch all the things you do

Because the drugs never work
They’re gonna give you a smirk
‘Cause they got methods of keepin’ you clean
They gonna rip up your heads
Your aspirations to shreds
Another cog in the murder machine

They said all
Teenagers scare
The living shit out of me
They could care less
As long as someone’ll bleed
So darken your clothes
Or strike a violent pose
Maybe they’ll leave you alone
But not me

The boys and girls in the clique
The awful names that they stick
You’re never gonna fit in much, kid
But if you’re troubled and hurt
What you got under your shirt
Will make them pay for the things that they did

They said all
Teenagers scare
The living shit out of me
They could care less
As long as someone’ll bleed
So darken your clothes
Or strike a violent pose
Maybe they’ll leave you alone
But not me

Oh yeah

They said all
Teenagers scare
The living shit out of me
They could care less
As long as someone’ll bleed
So darken your clothes
Or strike a violent pose
Maybe they’ll leave you alone
But not me

All together now

Teenagers scare
The living shit out of me
They could care less
As long as someone’ll bleed
So darken your clothes
Or strike a violent pose
Maybe they’ll leave you alone
But not me

Teenagers scare
The living shit out of me
They could care less
As long as someone’ll bleed
So darken your clothes
Or strike a violent pose
Maybe they’ll leave you alone
But not me
