"Hospital" as written by and Robert C./howard Mccracken....
This feeling never leaves you alone
You pull the trigger on your own
You're hiding in your safe place
Hiding with your eyes shut tightly
On the way to the hospital

Not will you ever rest your head
You end up feeling mostly dead
Pretending you're the last one
Hiding with your eyes shut tightly
On the way to the hospital

Before I cross my heart and hope to die at all
I take off my mask
And leave the lies to the liars

It never used to hurt before
It isn't funny anymore
You're feeling so alone now
Funny how you wish some way that you could die at the hospital

You're quiet on the car ride home
You're waiting for your head to explode
You're hiding in your safe place
Hiding with your eyes shut tightly
All the way to the hospital

Before I cross my heart and hope to die at all
I take off my mask
And leave the lies to the liars
(Before I close my)
Before I close my eyes
I hope to give it up
(Take off my)
I take off my mask
And leave the lies to the liars
And leave the lies to the liars

He thinks he fooled them all
(Hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray)
He thinks he fooled them all
(Hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray)
(Hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray)

Before I cross my heart and hope to die at all
I take off my mask
And leave the lies to the liars
(Before I close my)
Before I close my eyes
I'm gonna give it up
(Take off my mask)
I take off my mask
And leave the lies to the liars
Leave the lies to the liars
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Leave the lies to the liars
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Leave the lies to the liars
Hey, hey, hey

    General CommentI'm suprised at all The Used fans commenting on this song and not knowing that this song is straight up written about a recurring dream Bert has where he dies on the way to the hospital. Check almost any interview with Bert about this album, you'll find it there.

    Here is MY interpretation of the song: There is one Bert singing to another version of Bert in the back of an ambulance. One is dying and the other is not. Dying Bert knows he's going to die soon and before he does he wants to get some things off his chest, but the other side of him doesn't want him to. His other side, decides that the lies have worked so far, and thus don't need to be known.

    But the Dying Bert persists saying:

    "before i cross my heart and hope to die at all... (i'll) take off my mask and leave the lies to the liars."

    the Lying Bert tells him that it could be a rash decision...

    "Will you look them in the face? Could you look me in the face? Three cheers you fooled them all.Come on now, Hip Hip Hooray."

    Basically the Lying Bert is telling him, it's done and it'd be pointless to change it, but Dying Bert decides that before he finds his final resting place, he wants his conscience cleared... hence the final chorus.

    Wow. See that guys? A whole "Lies For The Liars" song meaning and it has NOTHING TO DO WITH MCR or GERARD. Christ... Haven't any of you heard the rumors that the "feud" isn't a feud at all?

    Here's what MIGHT have really happened: Gerard got clean. Bert didn't. They don't hang. Press sees this. Press looks at their old clippings and see Gerard and Bert kissing outside Times Square and spin some asanine story of betrayal and backstabbing. The Used get tired of fielding questions about the sudden fame and success of MCR and start avoiding the issue which makes it look worse than it is. MCR still talk about The Used and it's all positive and for the most part vice versa. And for you diehards, look no further than the DVD portion of Berth which was released a couple of months ago. A circa 2005-era Gerard Way is talking about The Used being a real band... genuine and not fake at all. I know it's old footage, but would you show a clip of your newly-anointed mortal enemy calling you "a good guy"? Fucking think for yourselves, man.

    That's all I ask...

    side note: This song at one point was called "Cross My Heart And Hope To Die"... don't you think if it was directed at Mr Way, it would've been called "Cross YOUR Heart"? Just saying...

    General Commenti just listened to this on their myspace and im pretty certain its about Gerard Way.

    theres a quieter sort of interlude part where bert puts on a voice and says:
    "i dont feel okay,
    i dont feel alright,
    Help me,
    i dont know."
    teamed with his mad laughing that he so good at.

    the whole "not feeling okay" thing is in this song and pretty handsome awkward which is also most definately about Gerard.
    it does sound like his bad drink and drugs days.

    if he is 'The Liar' it makes me wonder what he did...

    General CommentFUCK great song!!! I couldn't make the part of the three cheers (well only the three cheers, before that I heard the voice but not the words) and I realize this song is too about the feud :D , so fucking awesome, it seems the best songs are those, well the only exception to my personal taste is the slow song Find a way.. that has nothing to do with the feud but its effing great as well.

    This song is clearly talking about Gerard, being the liar blah blah, but also Bert exposing the truth and leaving the "lies for the liars" .

    Woah this one could not be missinterpreted just because the seriously mocking "I don't feel ok" he's patronizing MCR song, from the also mentioned album three cheers (wich I also agree was the biggest sellout lie, in Bert's eyes, I thought three cheers was a neat album, way neater than the parade)

    Fucking amazing once again, this time the efects on the vocals and also the lyrics :)
