My Chemical Romance: Blood Meaning

Blood Lyrics

Well they encourage your complete cooperation,
Send you roses when they think you need to smile.
I can't control myself because I don't know how,
And they love me for it honestly, I'll be here for a while.

So give them blood, blood, gallons...

    I think this song is about the patient, but also, to a larger extent, the world and us. Its about how we all love blood sports, and we all want to see the train wreck. It isn't literal. There are no vampires. Its about everyone loving him because he's dying. "I'm the kind of human wreckage that you love."

    I think this song could be about how obsessed fans can be, and how they can want so much out of their idols and how MCR might feel that even though they do all they can its never enough for their fans or other people.
    'Give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff, give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough'
    As if they are giving their very souls in their work, pouring out every ounce of them into what they do and how some people can still want more.

    Might not be though. Just what I think.

    It is actually about "THe Patient"
    going into the hospital and referring to the nurses
    as vampires,
    because they are always taking blood.
    and how it is never enough,
    for nay of them.
    and how his "problem"
    can be fixed "with a bit of luck"

    I think "Blood" is about either The Patient talked about through the whole album, and maybe they are in the psychiatric ward of the hospital. "They encourage your complete cooperation" as in, you have to cooperate as they conduct their tests, I'm sure some doctors say that exact line for that reason. "Send you roses when they think you need a smile" patients in hospitals do get flowers as gifts to cheer the, up. "I'll be here for a while", he will probably be in ward for a while because of reasons (which as other interpretations have said could be cutting, "I can't control myself because I don't know how" as it can be addictive).

    Also, "they can fix proper with a bit of luck" he believes he needs to be fixed, or he has been told he needs to be fixed, which furthers that he is in a psychiatric ward. There are also many lines of the song that point to self hatred.

    I personally think that this song is setting up the storyline of "Danger Days: The Secret Lives of the Fabolous Killjoys", with 'giving blood' being the creation of Kosh and the Draculoids. The Patient, the next to be turned, runs away to survive in the desert. Meanwhile, Better Life Industries takes more and more "blood" from the populace of Battery City, this time blood being freedom of thought. The Patient then goes on to become none other than Party Poison/MouseKat.

    In my opinion, the song describes a patient that is insane, in a mental asylum maybe, and i believe heis self-harming and cutting himself. When he says, "I'm such an awful fuck." I think he hates himself and he's confused on why the nurses and the doctors like him when he believes he is insane.

    While yes, this entire concept album is about the patient, each and every song has a meaning larger than the patient. Each song relates to us and to real life. I think this song is about how we can give our all, we can give sweat, blood, and tears, and yet people will still expect more. I also think this may relate to mcr as a band and how they have poured their lives and souls into their work but the fans always expect more.

    I think that this song is about a girlfriend who is sucking him dry. and about all of the adoring fans and he considers himself a bad person. and also how after it all he is just a human wreck.

    I'm pretty sure it's about The Patient, isn't it? Because I think The Black Parade is a concept album (and I think it follows the story of The Patient).
    Though I'm probably wrong. Most likely tbh.

    This song could potentially be about the patient, reassuring the fact he has seen war. He is refering to the army, where they encourage your cooperation, no matter the cause. Where children and loved ones send you roses during tough times. Where you'll be for, quote honestly, a while. The soldiers are shedding blood, blood, gallons of the stuff.And sometimes, it will never be enougg.

    The album tells the story of "the patient". I've been told it's a rock opera. It's easy enough to understand that "the patient" is an actual patient. His problem can't be fixed without, "a bit of luck". Also, they would have to take blood samples of a patient. They would have to keep taking them for tests. That's why it's never enough.

    I see this song as a metaphor for greed and the people who will always give them what they are greedy for. Let me explain.

    "Well they encourage your complete cooperation,
    Send you roses when they think you need to smile. I can't control myself because I don't know how, And they love me for it honestly, I'll be here for a while."

    I see this as the greedy person obviously wants you to give them what they want, and some are very deceptive to get what they want, from "Send you roses when they think you need to smile". Now the person-or patient I guess- just agrees, which of course the greedy take advantage of.

    "So give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff! Give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough. So give them blood, blood, blood. Grab a glass because there's going to be a flood!"

    This is the patient giving them what they want, and a whole lot of it, too! But,the greedy will always want more, resulting in just so much of what it is the greedy want, represented by the "flood".

    "A celebrated man amongst the gurneys. They can fix me proper with a bit of luck. The doctors and the nurses they adore me so, But it's really quite alarming cause I'm such an awful f**k. (Oh thank you!)"

    "The gurneys" I see again as the greedy people, as well as "The doctors and the nurses." In the song, it says how he is celebrated and adored by these things, which, if he always gives them what they want, makes sense. I see "They can fix me proper with a bit of luck." as a little cry for help, saying that he is kind of in a situation he can't really get himself out of, now that he has given the greedy so much, but with just a little luck, he could get out of it somehow. Also, the final line reveals that he is surprised at the fact that although he has given the greedy what they want, probably turning him into a pretty bad person because of the expenses that feeding them what they want, the greedy don't care and still like him, only because he still gives them what they want.

    The final chorus in the song is almost the same as the previous one, but the final line "I'm the kind of human wreckage that you love!" reveals that the greedy people have worn him down to be even more vulnerable than he was before, making him an even easier target to get what it is they want.

    But hey,what should I know about the meaning of songs, I'm only an eighth grader!

    I think it is about someone in a mental hospital and is going crazy thinking that everyone is drinking blood. Also that he thinks his loved one is crazy enough to drink blood.

    I think it's about his self harm. The blades are the vampires and he could only be saved by luck because he's addicted to self harming

    I think this song is how society wants everything from you even to the extent of your blood.

    It is about cutting and how you give all the haters blood for all the hurtful things they say.

    I think it is the cancer talking on this song, cuz i cant control itself and when you find it, it has been already in your body for a while, and it is a illness that you need luck to recouver from and it is the most studied illness by doctours and nurses... It all makes sense to me to be the cancer talking. Specially when the album is whole about cancer as well.
