Don't belive what they say
Were dead flies in the summer time
They leave us all behind
With duct tape scars on my honey
They don't like who...

I think the song is about how the Killjoys are determined to fight the bad guys, despite the overwhelming odds against them. The bad guys are not seriously thinking that the Killjoys are a real threat (They don't believe in us), but the Killjoys think they are a force to be reckoned with (But I believe we're the enemy). They will still go to war with the bad guys, despite knowing all too well they won't be able to win (Against the sun we're the enemy).

Most of their songs are ambiguous and refer to the album concept and a message in real life, be it war, politics, love. In this I agree with previous comments made about them thinking they are the bad guys. It could also be about the Killjoys wreaking as much havoc as they can as their numbers decrease, possibly revenge after S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W (most likely refering to a nuclear bomb and the fallout to ensue or the actual unit within BL/ind)

My opinion is that this song is about illuminati. It is like - everyone pushes and no one raises against the pressure. Gerard is singing about a rat that is the king of the street and we are the flies that hide. You know how flies are interpreted with something boring that should be destroyed. If you think we all are flies, then who can be the rat? I think there can be two answers: government and illuminati. But since illuminati are everywhere, you can even think they are the government. I will look at most of the verses so I will explain what I mean.
"Don't believe what they say" - I think someone is trying to make them, or just us, think something that we renounce.
"We're dead flies in the summertime
They leave us all behind" - we may be the flies. Those that are scared from the law, those that have been forced to hide forbidden things, those that have to bring their IDs everywhere and those that have been treated like a stock with barcode or something like this. We are those that have to hide in holes.
"With duct tape scars on my honey" - you know how flies stuck in honey. Also you know how when you touch the duck tape it leaves print. We, the flies, don't just stuck in the honey, but leave our scars. They know everything about us, we are no just a humans that born, live and disappear. They know everything about us.
"They don't like who you are" - the illuminati don't like the individuality.
"You won't like where we'll go" - "you" in this case may be the same illuminati.
"Brother, protect me now" - protection, because he sings this, I think.
"With blood they wash in the money!" - obvious. May be about wars or may be about just a little criminal that haven't been noticed by anyone. Someone just disappears and their (the illuminati's) hands are clean.
"You don't believe in God" - I think "you" is again the illuminati.
"I don't believe in luck" - means that contrariwise of their thoughts, Gerard, which is one of us, the people, believes in God.
"They don't believe in us" - the illuminati don't believe we are someone. They think we are zombies to manage.
"But I believe we're the enemy!" - we are the enemies of the illuminati.
"I'm sick down from the bones to the other side" - sickness from the illuminati or from how they drove someone to the other side.
"Red-mob, we insects hide" - address to the illuminati that we are forced to hide. The illuminati are red because of the blood on their hands.
"King rat on the streets in another life" - their life is different. All they know is to wield us. And they are the king of the streets - the streets are the place the flies live so it's their big world.
"They laugh, we don't think it's funny" - the things they make us believe we have to laugh at. It can be everything. But those that know what they are doing, don't laugh.
"If what you are
Is just what you own
What have you become
When they take from you
ALMOST EVERYTHING" - we are 0. That's it - they take from us out individuality, our intimate life, they govern us.
"Destroya" - it can mean that they are destroying you or that you should destroy 'em.
"Against the sun, we're the enemy" - they, the illuminati, think they matter more than we, those who know what they are doing, think. They think that they are the sun. But we are actually their enemies.
"I don't believe in God (you don't believe in God)" - what they think is we don't, but at the ground we do. We believe in God and they can't make us don't do.
"I don't believe in luck (I don't believe in luck)" - it's true. Today a lot of people don't believe in luck, like they don't believe in God (sadly). They are like robots with no hope for future. Like the community of illuminati made them. In the background Gerard sings he doesn't believe in luck, which means that he really doesn't. He believes in God.
"I don't believe in you (They don't believe in us)" - what first is heard is "I" but this is what illuminati think - we actually believe in us. They don't.
"I just believe we're the enemy (but I believe we're the enemy)" - "I just" is like said from a slave. When it is "but" it is like from someone that knows who he is and what he wants.
"So show me what you got, you children of the gun" - rising against the illuminati. They are the children of the gun, because that's what they do when something doesn't please them - destroy it, kill.
"Don't hide and we don't run!" - the illuminati don't run from us, but we, those that know who they are, also don't hide from them.
"Well I'm waiting for yaa Destroya Destroya" - we are waiting they to capitulate.

Okay, so "Destroya" is a robot. Gerard told us that.
This song is from the album "Danger Days" which was in a post apocalyptic world, so a giant robot named Destroya isn't too weird.
Now, the song seems to not have a lot of meaning, however there's a lyric that says:
"If what you are is just what you own, what will you become when they take from you almost everything?"
This kind of points out that what you own or how rich you are doesn't change you.
Now, as for the moaning in the song...they were drunk.
The drums are inspired by a festival where drums were a huge thing, and people moved with the drums, creating circle pits and having a good time.
This is one of my favorite songs.
Now, if you're mad about him saying he doesn't believe in God, get over it. If you like MCR, you should know by their songs Thank You For The Venom and WTTBP, that they aren't entirely Christian.
Keep running, Killjoys.

I mean right side sorry

But still near the end of the song the singer Gerard sings two different things at the same time. So if you have ear buds just try listening to it one at a time.
One of the things he said on the left side was "I don't believe in god, I dont believe in luck I don't believe in you I believe in the enemy" but the left side sings: "you don't believe god I don't believe in luck you don't believe in us I believe were the enemy". (I was shocked when he said I don't believe in god).

over all I think this song is simply about an underdog. Because you're not the "norm" or what society wants you to be you are treated like dirt. You are seen as a problem or an outcast.
"What you are
It's just what you own
What have you become
When they take from you
You are who you are, and others may not like that and they might try to strip you of who you are. if you let them take that passion away from you, you are nothing but another person on this earth who won't make an impact

Okay Dude I heard that this song was inspired by a Indian thing hence, the drum beat. Its about destroying the cast system in India. (I think)
anonymous Aug 5th, 2011 8:35pm report
I think this song talks about not.being like society, or the killjoys enemy, so since they/you arent following the rules.they make.or.believing in their strength/beliefs you.must be the enemy because you are not like them
anonymous Jan 13th, 2011 1:40pm report
The song is about how strong peoples faith is. It compares god to the sun and to the eyes of many faithful people, going against god is like trying to fight the sun which in that case, you can't win. Since usually the good guys always win, trying to fight the sun will make them the bad guys or the enemies. That's my interpretation of the song.
anonymous Jan 7th, 2011 1:51am report
I believe it is a song about going to war and they have a conscious so they believe they are the enemy. and the luck and god thing are different reason they go to war. because what some believe is god others believe is luck. They believe they are the detroya
anonymous Dec 30th, 2010 12:00am report
Yeah, it could have something to do with religion with the you don't believe in god i don't believe in luck line.
anonymous Dec 30th, 2010 12:08am report
This song reminds me of Appolyon the "destroyer" written in Revelation
anonymous Dec 29th, 2010 12:26pm report
I agree with you, I think that's what it means in the whole killjoy story, but in real life, i think it's just talking about being unsure of yourself. it could be in politics or anything else. like being afraid to agree with someone you consider to be an enemy
