    This song is about mental health. No way around it. The person feels like there's too much on their shoulders and they're starting to break.

    I read somewhere that Freddie and David were partying together, using massive amounts of cocaine and went into the studio and each of them recorded the first thing that came to mind. Later they cleaned it up.

    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.

    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.
