"Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" as written by and Frank Iero Bob Bryar....
The future is bulletproof
The aftermath is secondary
It's time to do it now and do it loud
Killjoys
Make some noise

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na

Drugs, gimme drugs, gimme drugs, I don't need it
But I'll sell what you got, take the cash and I'll keep it
Eight legs to the wall, hit the gas, kill them all
And we crawl, and we crawl, and we crawl you be my detonator

Love, gimme love, gimme love, I don't need it
But I'll take what I want from your heart and I'll keep it
In a bag, in a box, put an X on the floor
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more, shut up and sing it with me

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(From mall security)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(To every enemy)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(We're on your property)
Standing in V formation

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Let's blow an artery)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Get plastic surgery)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Keep your apology)
Give us more detonation

More, gimme more, gimme more

Oh, let me tell you about the sad man
Shut up and let me see your jazz hands
Remember when you were a madman
Thought you was Batman and hit the party with a gas can

Kiss me, you animal

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(You run the company)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Fuck like a Kennedy)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(I think we'd rather be)
Burning your information

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Let's blow an artery)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Get plastic surgery)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Keep your apology)
Give us more detonation

And right here, right now
All the way in Battery City
The little children raise their open, filthy palms
Like tiny daggers up to heaven

And all the Juvie halls and the Ritalin rats
Ask angels made from neon
And fucking garbage scream out what will save us
And the sky opened up

Everybody wants to change the world
Everybody wants to change the world
But no one, no one
Wants to die

Wanna try, wanna try, wanna try
Wanna try, wanna try, now, I'll be your detonator

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Make no apology)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(It's death or victory)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(On my authority)
Crash and burn, young and loaded

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Drop like a bullet shell)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Just like a sleeper cell)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(I'd rather go to hell)
Than be in a purgatory

Cut my hair, gag and bore me
Pull this pin, let this world explode

    General CommentThe song's happy upbeat and lyrics make me think "live your life to the fullest", "go out with a bang".

    Watching the music video, that is essentially what its all about. They are non-conformists. The wackiness is kind of ironic because it is how I live my life, which I've been told I remind some people of the comic character "The Creeper". Mwhaha! ;)

    "Everybody wants to change the world, but no one wants to die. Wanna try?"

    That lyrical line is how you should live your life to the fullest. Just release yourself as if you are trying to change or save the world. It is a win/win because if you die, you still change the world.

    General CommentI think it's about American culture more specifically the excess, materialism and conformity that's within our culture especially the music today. I think Gerard said that this is sort of an "anti party record you can party too" so that kind of fits. At the end he's sort of saying that he won't conform to the drugs and partying culture of today to fit in/sell records. Still not as good as anything on Three Cheers but pretty fun song with a good message nonetheless. I like this new direction.

    General CommentI think this song is about everything being wrong but yet they're so happy. The "na na na na na na na" part sounds really care free in a rebellion sort of way.

    Song Meaningthe songs means it's a kind of rallying song, calling for revolution: "Everyone wants to change the world, but no-one, no-one wants to die. Gunna try."
    "I'll be your detonator" seems to imply that Gerard will be the instigator of this revolution. as said on yahoo answers by. phil thanks phil

    General CommentMy older cousin Rissy introduced me to this song when I was about 6 or 7. Of course,I saw the censored version where instead of saying "drugs give me drugs give drugs" it said "beep! Give me beep! Give me beep!" But that just ended up scaring the living soul out of me because on the "beep!" It showed a picture of like, static with 911 written in black, and I could've sworn I saw the "static monster" waving at me behind the 9. I still, love the song but that freaking picture creeps me out.
    Also, she told me it was about a guys little brother being taken from him while babysitting and that they had to go look for them and that the mom would NOT be happy when she got home, but I'm not sure. Do any of you know?

    General CommentThe intro from the Art is the Weapon video isn't in the actual song, and you're missing more than half of the lyrics... :(

    My Interpretationthis is the my interpretation of the actual song since it doesn't actually include the intro of the 'art is the weapon' video

    Drugs, give me drugs, give me drugs!
    I don’t need it but I’ll sell what you got
    Take the cash and I’ll keep it
    Eight legs to the wall
    Hit the gas animal!
    And we crawl! And we crawl! And we crawl!
    Give me my detonator!

    Love, give me love, give me love!
    I don’t need it but I’ll take what I want from your heart
    And I’ll keep it in a bag, in a box
    Put an X on the floor
    Give me more! Give me more! Give me more!
    Shut up and sing it with me!

    For my security
    To every enemy
    We’re on your property
    Standing in V-Formation

    Explode an artery
    Need plastic surgery
    Keep you apology
    Give us more detonation!

    Let me tell you about the sad man
    Shut up and let me see your jazz hands!
    Remember when you were a madman?
    Thought you was Batman
    And hit the party with a gas can
    Kiss me you animal!

    You run the company
    A fucking Kennedy
    I think we’d rather be
    Burning your information

    Explode an artery
    Need plastic surgery
    Keep your apology
    Give us more detonation!

    And right here, right now,
    All the way to Battery City
    The little children raise their open, filthy palms
    Like tiny daggers up to heaven
    And all that you caused, and the writhered(?) rats
    As angels made from neon and fucking garbage scream out
    “What will save us?”
    And the sky opened up

    Everybody wants to change the world
    But no one, no one wants to die
    Want to try!? Want to try?! Want to try!?
    I’ll be your detonator!

    Make no apology
    It’s just obituary
    I’m my authority
    Crash and burn
    Young and loaded

    Drop like a bullet shell
    Just like a sleeper cell
    I’d rather go to hell
    Than be in purgatory
    Cut my hair
    Gag and bore me
    Pull this pin
    Let this world explode!

    General Comment@Adalia3x0h
    Sorry...
    In my defence though, I did post the other lyrics before the full version of this song was released.

    I've corrected them, and I think the ones that are up now are pretty much correct, but if anyone thinks otherwise please feel free to tell me. :)
