the foundations of decay my chemical romance lyrics

[Verse 1: Gerard Way]
See the man who stands upon the hill
He dreams of all the battles won
But fate had left its scars upon his face

With all the damage they had done
And so time, with age
He turns the page
Let the flesh
Submit itself to gravity

[Chorus]
Let our bodies lay
While our hearts will stay
Let our blood and pain
The forgotten pain

If your convictions were a passing phase
May our ashes feed the river in the morning rays
And as the vermin crawls
We lay in the foundations of decay

[Verse 2: Gerard Way]
He was there, the day the towers fell
And so he wandered down the road
And we would all build towers of our own

Only to watch the roots corrode
But it’s much too late
You’re in the race
So we’ll press
And press ’til you can’t take it anymore

[Chorus]
Let our bodies lay
While our hearts will stay
Let our blood and pain
The forgotten pain

And if by his own hand his spirit flies
Take his body as a relic
To be canonized
And so he gets to die a saint
But she will always be the whore

[Bridge]
Let’s flip out
Against fate ([?] yellow)
Against all life (As if it must be pure)
Against change (Wander through the ruins)
We are free (Fifteen years ago)

[Verse 3: Gerard Way]
You must fix your heart
And you must build an altar where it was
When the storm decays at this dying rate
Let it flood


Let it flood
Let it wash away

At last, we’ll stumble through the last crusade
When you welcome your extinction in the morning rays
And as the swarming calls to lay in the foundations

[Outro]
Yes, it comforts me much more
Yes, it comforts me much more
To lay in the foundations of decay
Give up killing
