The Pope lights a candle at Auschwitz.
But there can never be light there.
It was dark when the numbers were inked onto skin.
It was night when families were separated into fit and frail.
It was black as they climbed over each other as the gas came.
No lights, no birds, no God.
So the Internet almost melted when it was presumed that My Chemical Romance were getting back together, so much so that the band actually put out a statement to shoot down the rumour. Instead on September 23rd, we will be getting a ten year anniversary (!!!!) edition of The Black Parade, complete with a second album of rough mixes and demos, all unreleased. ‘The Five Of Us Are Dying’ is an early version of Welcome To The Black Parade. You can get the two disc edition of The Black Parade, or a three disc vinyl version, along with a MCRX flag at the official site : http://www.mychemicalromance.com

Can you believe this amazing song is 25 years old today? A mess of eyeliner and spray paint, Manic Street Preachers arrived and changed my world. Love you boys and all the friends I have made thanks to you, all the books I have discovered thanks to Richey and Nicky and the 30-40 gigs I have enjoyed. STAY BEAUTIFUL! ❤
Gotta love Belial! 🙂
