"Surrender the Night" as written by and Gerard Way Michael Way....
Everyone's a passenger tonight,
Just another accidental on the freeway of this life.
We'll drive on, and on, and on, and on.
We'll drive on, and on, and-
I'll remember this night when you're gone

You surrender your heart,
I surrender every dream,
Every weapon you've got,
Every secret that I keep,
You can fight this all you want,
But tonight belongs to-

Just another surgery tonight,
Well if you amputate the loneliness,
Anesthesia dims the lights.
So dream on, and on, and on, and on.
So dream on, and on, and-
I'll remember your eyes when you're gone

You surrender your heart,
I surrender every dream,
Every weapon you've got,
Every secret that I keep,
You can fight this all you want,
But tonight belongs to me

And I'll watch you in your sleep
'Cause tonight belongs to me
You can fight this all you want,
But tonight belongs to...

Sparks against the railing,
Distant phantoms wailing.
Through the windshield sailing,
With these airbags failing.

Now you surrender your heart,
I surrender every dream,
Every weapon you've got,
Every secret that I keep,
You can fight this all you want,
But tonight belongs to me

And I'll watch you in your sleep,
You can fight this all you want,
But tonight belongs to me,
But tonight belongs to me,
But tonight belongs to me.

    My InterpretationSome of the lyrics above are incorrect, but from the actual lyrics, I think this song is about the struggle to find happiness. "We'll drive on and on and on and on" is a metaphor to keep going, and the "accident on the freeway of this life" is all of the problems or possibly depression. The chorus explains how you just need to let go of everything, and how you might "fight this all you want" because lets face it, letting go is hard and terrifying, but is also the only way to cure the issues. "Well if you amputate the loneliness, let anesthesia dim the lights" I really love this line. He has said the same thing that he's been saying for the whole song, to let go. As I listen to it more and more, it sounds like he's singing about depression. I've felt what mild depression feels like and it is absolutley excruciating, and this song helped a lot.

    General CommentEveryone's a passenger tonight
    Just another accident
    Along the freeway of this life

    We drive on and on and on and on
    We drive on and on and on
    Remember this night when you're gone

    These lines really highlight the meaning of the song to me. I feel it's about he fight for attention but mostly about how people will watch a person self destruct slowly or what not and not do a thing and and how people dont really care about that until your dead (scuicide). In freeway accidents, everyone drives a little slower to take a look at the damage but they dont stop, they dont pull over (mostly b/c they cant but also b/c they dont care enough). People just "drive on" away, uncaring.

    the chorus is about at the moment of death, how you become nothing.
    "Just another surgery tonight
    Well if you amputate the loneliness
    Anesthesia dims the lights'
    is about the trying to get attention. Constant reconstruction of your self or lies and tweaks about your life to get attention and that the only way to get rid of the lonliness is drugs (which leads to eventual scucide/death (od))


    yeah and the lyrics are seriously inaccurate
