    This song is about the victims of a horrible Tsunami,(I'm not sure when it was...). I know this because when The Used and My Chemical Romance performed this live back in 2005 or 2004, Bert stated that it was about a Tsunami.

    Since every my chemical Romance fan knows that the lead singer was struggling with drugs and alcohol adicsion and depression so I think that he was under pressure.

    This was done by MCR and The Used.

    This was a cover of Queen's song.

    The lyrics deal with how pressure can destroy lives, but love can be the answer.

    Maybe it's about the pressure of being yourself? Or maybe about peace.
    I am not so sure.

    Hey, this is a QUEEN song. But it's still brilliant when MCR is doing it.
    I think it's all about how fast life is passing nowadays, without any time for individuals.
    Love MCR!

    This is about the Tsumani and was to show support for all the people who lost loved ones, their homes and their possestions.
    It was performed by the used and my chemical romance live at a show some years back.

    Yeah, I knew it was originally by david bowie and queen, but I think that my chemical romance and the used, both being my favorite bands, did a much better job performing it...

    I agree with Angelmisty and the person above them. It was originally performed by Queen and David Bowie, and was covered for charity.

    I agree with pronggs666. Its talking about how we are under pressure of the sorrows of the word and if we gave a bit more love, we'd all be better off

    Does no one realize that this song (though performed wonderfully by The Used and mcr) is actually a song by David Bowie and Queen from a long time ago?
