"House Of Wolves" as written by and Frank Iero Bob Bryar....
I know a thing about contrition
Because I got enough to say
And I'll be grantin' your permission
'Cause you haven't got a prayer

I said, hey hallelujah
Well come on, sing the praise
Let the spirit come on through ya
We got innocence today

Well I think I'm gonna burn in hell
Everybody burn the house down
She says well, what I wanna say
Tell me I'm an angel

Take this to my grave
Tell me I'm a bad man
Kick me like a slave
Tell me I'm an angel
Take this to my grave

S-I-N, S-I-N, S-I-N, S-I-N
S-I-N, S-I-N, S-I-N, S-I-N

Well a ring around the ambulance
Like I never gave a care
I said, choir boys surround you
It's a compliment, I swear

And I said, ashes to ashes, we all fall down
I wanna hear you sing the praise
I said, ashes to ashes, we all fall down
We got innocence for days

Well I think I'm gonna burn in hell
Everybody burn the outside
And says, ha, what I wanna say
Tell me I'm an angel

Take this to my grave
Tell me I'm a bad man
Kick me like a stray
Tell me I'm an angel
Take this to my grave

You better walk like the devil,
'Cause they're never gonna leave you

You better hide em in the alley
'Cause they're never gonna find you a home

And as the blood runs down the walls
You see me creepin' up these halls
I've been a bad motherfucker
Tell your sister I'm another
Go, go, go

And I say, what I wanna say
Tell me I'm an angel
Take this to my grave
Tell me I'm a bad man
Kick me like a stray
Tell me I'm an angel
Take this to my grave

Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man
Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man
Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man
Tell me I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad man

So get up
So get out

S-I-N
S-I-N

    General Commenti get the idea that he (the patient) is talking to a priest before he dies. and the priest is trying to give him a blessing before he dies, but hes so in such a dark place that hes deliberately mocking the priest and telling him he knows hes going to hell.

    General Commentam I the only person who finds this song ridiculously sexy?
    it has some mad d/s undertones, even if it is about religion at first listen.
    heh. or maybe i'm just screwed up. .__.

    General CommentThe Patient is accepting the fact that he's doomed to hell and is playing with several religious ideas(Contrition, ashes to ashes, hallelujah, praise etc.) Walk like the devil means he needs to know how to act like a demon because he's going to hell, if he acts like an angel he won't be left alone by hell. Hiding in the alley is telling him to leave, he'll never get home. The blood and the halls is a reference to a hospital.

    General Commenti LOVE this song. I cannot wait for the album! I think that this song may be up there with my favourite MCR songs of all time!
    It's obvious that Frank can up with a lot of this song... you can tell from the musical vibe.
    xXx
    Oh and do the 'I think i'm gonna burn in hell' parts remind anyone else of the misfits? I think it's great!
