7 Teenagers - My Chemical Romance

Because the drugs never work
"They're gonna give you a smirk
Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They gonna rip up your head
Youre aspirations to shreds"
- Andii

Yes yes yes. Teenage violence. Did you know Gerard Way wrote this on the train? Yep. He was afraid of the teenagers he saw there. This song rocks. I didnt know it was that short.

Pure My Chemical Romance. It's got everything to make you look up and like it. The best song in a long long time guys. And it's so short too! And by the way, Queen sucks. And so does 'We will, we will rock you'. Duds.
