"The Ripper" as written by and Robert C./howard Mccracken....
Time kills
Go ask Jesus
I'm done
Makes no difference
Stare straight
Stare at the sun
I'm done
Makes no difference

Time takes us all
So, why am I not just living for today?
Time takes us
Time takes us all
Will I die right now?
I'm only seconds away
Time takes us

Move on
Gone forever
I'm done
Makes no difference
Poison
Time kills slowly
You're done
Makes no difference

Time takes us all
So, why am I not just living for today?
Time takes us
Time takes us all
Will I die right now?
It could be seconds away
Time takes us

Time will now be
Time will now be
Time will now be (time will now be) the chopping block
Leave my head
Time will now be the chopping block
So leave my head!
Leave my head!
Leave my head!

Time kills
Makes no difference
I'm done
(Makes no difference, makes no difference)

(Time takes us all)
So, why am I not just living for today?
Time takes us
Time takes us all
Will I die right now?
It could be seconds away
Time takes us

Time takes us all

    General CommentTo me it sounds like this is just a song telling you to get off your ass and live life like its your last day. Constantly reminding you that time will catch up to you and you could regret it when its too late. I dunno.

    General CommentThis songs alright, but their new album isnt as good as their last two...I hope they dont become too popular. I know it would be good for them but i hate it when that happens to bands.

    General Commentyeah it does suck when your favorite bands get popular, but what kind of band wants to stay small forever? this album isnt as screamo as the last two but i still think its great.

    General CommentFor some reason this song reminds me of David Bowies' "Rock 'N' Roll Suicide"; lyrics wise that is.

    General CommentI don't think they've become mainstream yet, they just evolved in the direction they were meant to.. This song has way too much changes within itself to be a "TRL hit" meaning that the teeny bopers won't like it because it's hard to understand (I don't mean the lyrics, but the beat changes and arrangements)

    Good for them, this one also takes two plays to get nicely...

    Go ask Jesus?

    General CommentThe chorus is ok.. Not sure about the verses though.
    This album kinda dissapointed me, the only good songs are, The Bird & The Word, Pretty Handsome Awkward and Liar, Liar. Theres hardly any screaming in this album, which sucks cas Bert can scream so well. This album sounds so much like MCR's Black Parade, poppy.

    General CommentEvery lyric i've looked at for this new album someone has linked something to MCR, weather it be Bert and Gerards falling out or whatever.
    I dont think this album is anything like Black Parade.

    I agree with dag_102 that some people wouldnt understand this song cause it changes so much. I think it keeps you captivated and alert, like; ''ooh i wonder what'll come next''

    I love this new album, and I love the other two aswell.

    General Commentwow dude i agree with u iheartme. their other albums were awesome. i was like so excited the new cd was gonna come out but once i heard their songs i was like woah some difference. the only song that i think is good on thier new album is the bird and the worm. and thats weird cause i really didnt dislike any of their old songs....so this is a first. i guess im dissappointed i mean it was one of my favorite bands...and i miss branden, i dont really like dan. it just seems like the band changed alot. i probably sound likie an idiot who really doesnt make sense but oh well....
