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."

    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 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.

    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.

    Has anyone here read Dracula? Because I can't help but feel that this is all about Renfield, the psychotic patient of Dr.Seward. :/.

    "Blood"
    The whole song is actually talking about the world, society, people. It's the deeper meaning.

    "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."
    - the government, work, school, parents, friends, everyone and everything expect you to corporate with them and do what's told
    - when you're feeling down sometimes they do things to help you
    - sometimes you don't know how to stop giving when you need to start taking
    - people will love you if all you do is give without complaining or anything so they'll want you to stick around
    "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!"
    - so you give and give and do what they want you to and you'll do what is asked but still it's not enough so they ask and you give

    " 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 fuck. (Oh thank you!)
    - when people finally start getting sick, people will love them when they start getting sick and stuff and start giving to that person who has gave
    - but yet if the person is valuable, they'll pay as much needed to get them back to health to continue
    - everyone seems to adore you when your on your death bed even if you did turn sour

    And the last part continues on with the chorus... Sort of and talks about how he has given and given but had gotten tired of it. Like you can listen to people and do what they need and be mean and rude but as long as you do their favors they'll love you for it.

    - Savannah

    I took it to be literally about him about letting as much blood go as possible while thinking of his demons but they won't notice and his inner bullies will still be there to annoy him and get in the way also the roses part is family and friends denying things to attempt to make him smile and 'fix' his depression etc
    The doctors and the nurses they adore me so
    They are used to him being around due to frequent trips to the hospital and are starting to like him but he doesn't understand why as people who struggle with depression and the addiction to cutting hate themselves so don't understand why people would like them
    This is just my opinion though so probably not what the song is actually about

    To me, I think it's about self harm, specifically cutting.
    Just think about it.

    i think it is about him being in a hospital and the Docs and nurse are Vampires and they are taking his blood and drinking it cause of "Give them all that they can drink and it will never enough" alos as in they keep asking him to give them his blood and then when it says "I gave you blood,blood gallons of the stuff i gave you ALL that you can drink and it has NEVER been enough"-(cause they keep drinking it)and "Well they encourage you"-(basically end up making you doing it in a way)-"I CANT control myself cause i dont know how"-as in(kinda) he doesnt really know how to stop himself-"And they love me for it"-giving them blood-"honestly, i'll be here for a while so give them blood,blood, gallons of the stuff " as in he cant really stop him self cause he likes being loved like that or something but he cant really control it they are like bring him in to the a trap
