My Chemical Romance – The Foundations of Decay Lyrics

My Chemical Romance The Foundations of Decay Lyrics

See the man who stands upon the hill
He dreams of all the battles won
But fate had left its scars upon his face
With all the damage they had done
And so with time, with age
He turns the page
Let the flesh
Submit itself to gravity

Let our bodies lay
While our hearts will stay
Let our blood invade
If I die in pain
Now, if your convictions were a passing phase
May our ashes feed the river in the morning rays
And as the vermin crawls
We lay in the foundations of decay

He was there, the day the towers fell
And so he wandered down the road
And we would all build towers of our own
Only to watch the rooms corrode
But it\’s much too late
You\’re in the race
So we\’ll press
And press \’til you can\’t take it anymore

Let our bodies lay
While our hearts will stay
Let our blood invade
If I die in pain
And if by his own hand his spirit flies
Take his body as a relic
To be canonized
And so he gets to die a saint
But she will always be the whore

(Let\’s flip out!)
Against fate (Antihero)
Against all life (As if it must be pure)
Against change (Wander through the ruins)
We are free (Fifteen years ago)

You must fix your heart
And you must build an altar where it was
When the storm decays at this dying rate
Let it flood
Let it flood
Let it wash away
At last, we\’ll stumble through your last crusade
When you welcome your extinction in the morning rays
And as the swarming calls to lay in the foundations

Yes, it comforts me much more
Yes, it comforts me much more
To lay in the foundations of decay
Give up killing
