"Heaven Help Us" as written by and Frank Iero Bob Bryar....
Hear the sound
The angels come screaming
Down your voice
I hear you've been bleeding

Make your choice
They say you've been pleading
Someone save us

Heaven help us now
Come crashing down
We'll hear the sound
As you're falling down

I'm at this old hotel
But can't tell if I've been breathing or sleeping
Or screaming or waiting for the man to call
And maybe all of the above
'Cause mostly I've been sprawled on these cathedral steps
While spitting out the blood and screaming
Someone save us

Heaven help us now
Come crashing down
We'll hear the sound
As you're falling down

And will you pray for me?
Or make a saint of me?
And will you lay for me?
Or make saint?

'Cause I'll give you all the nails you need
Cover me in gasoline
Wipe away those tears of blood again
And the punchline to the joke is asking
Someone save us

Heaven help us now
Come crashing down
We'll hear the sound
As you fall

And would you pray for me?
(You don't know a thing about my sins)
(How the misery begins)
Or make a saint of me?
(You don't know)
(So I'm burning, I'm burning)
And will you lay for me?
(You don't know a thing about my sins)
(How the misery begins)
Or make a saint?
(You don't know)
('Cause I'm burning, I'm burning)

'Cause I'll give you all the nails you need
(I'm burning, I'm burning again)
Cover me in gasoline again

    General CommentYay, It's up here... Now the lyrics are pretty self explanatory but I guess its better that way, I see they still carried onto this album their Catholic references :p nails, tears of blood, cathedral steps and angels. Thought they'd gave up on that but I'm glad they didn't.

    Nice song overall, it takes two listens to get the feeling out of it, I listened one at night, and woke up yearning for it , since then, love it (wich was three days ago so I'm overdoing it)

    Cheers to MCR

    General CommentI love it. I love it. I love it. I love it. And from what I've heard, the new album will be awesome! My favourite bit of the song is "You don't know a thing about my sins/ How the misery begins"

    Anyway, fan-girling over (ironic, seeing as I'm in possession of the Y-chromosome), yeah, the song's fairly self-explanatory... kinda... :S

    General Comment^^^ It's a B-side on the WTTBP single so it won't be.

    I'm pretty sure these of the correct lyrics:

    Hear the sound
    The angels come screaming
    Down your voice
    I hear you've been bleeding

    Make your choice
    They say you've been pleading
    Someone save us

    Heaven help us now
    Come crashing down
    We'll hear the sound
    As you're falling down

    I'm at this old hotel
    But can't tell if I've been breathing or sleeping
    Or screaming or waiting for the man to call
    And maybe all of the above
    Cause mostly I've been sprawled on these cathedral steps
    While spitting out the blood and screaming
    Someone save us

    Heaven help us now
    Come crashing down
    We'll hear the sound
    As you're falling down

    And will you pray for me?
    Or make me say don't leave?
    And will you lay for me?
    Or make us change?

    Cause I'll give you all the meds you need
    Cover me in gasoline
    Wipe away those tears of blood again
    And the punchline to the joke is asking
    Someone save us

    Heaven help us now
    Come crashing down
    We'll hear the sound
    As you fall

    And would you pray for me?
    (You don't know a thing about my sins)
    (How the misery begins)
    Or make us say don't leave?
    (You don't know)
    (So I'm burning, I'm burning)
    And will you lay for me?
    (You don't know a thing about my sins)
    (How the misery begins)
    Or make us change?
    (You don't know)
    (Cause I'm burning, I'm burning)

    Cause I'll give you all the meds you need
    (I'm burning, I'm burning again)
    Cover me in gasoline again

    General CommentWow, and this song didn't even make the album cut??

    To me, it seems to be about some person who's going through a really rough time and tries to turn to religion, but it doesn't help. Actually that doesn't really make sense at all. I don't particularly know the exact meaning.... Hard to explain.
