(Yeah)
Well let's go back to the middle of the day that starts it all
Oh I can't begin to let you know just what I'm feeling
And now the red ones make me fly
And the blue ones help me fall
And I think I'll blow my brains against the ceiling
And as the fragments of my skull begin to fall
Fall on your tongue like pixie dust just think happy thoughts

And we'll fly home
We'll fly home
You and I, I
We'll fly home

Well now I'm back in the middle of the day that starts it all
Oh I can't begin to let you know just what I'm feeling
And now these red ones make me fly
And the blue ones help me fall
And I think I'll blow my brains against the ceiling now

We'll fly home
You and I, I
We'll fly home

Now honestly, that's what I said to her, what I said to her

Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts
Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts
Think ha - woo

    General Commentgood i'm so glad some one else thought peter pan. I definitely see where people are coming from with the drug references, but he's talking about pixie dust and flying home. he repeats over and over to himself "think happy thoughts" just like peter pan did in order to fly

    My InterpretationDEFINITELY about suicide. "Think happy thoughts and we'll fly home.." Think happy thoughts to clear your mind and not scare yourself so you can get through your suicide peacefully. Not a happy song.

    General Commentone of my favorite songs on the cd. i really like the duality of the upbeat sound and dark lyrics. pretty sure this is a song about drugs...anyways, if you haven't already, i would highly recommend seeing these guys live if you have the chance, they put on an incredible show for such a new band

    General CommentI saw MCR recently on tour with Finch and was blown away. I picked up the cd and this song is probably my favorite. It just has a great beat.
