Kill all Your Friends Lyrics

Well you can hide a lot about yourself,
But honey, what're you gonna do?
And you can sleep in a coffin,
But the past ain't through with you.

'Cause we are all a bunch of liars.
Tell me, baby, who do you wanna be?
And we are all about to sell...

    Like most of you have said, yeah, i think a man and a woman are like, in love, and they only meet at funerals. so they kill everyone to see each other. that's the way i see it anyway.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    the story about the drunk dude in the loveless marriage is true but when i first heard this song initially, i thought about a funneral where the victums friends aren't too sad about the passing of their friend.It kind of reminds me of "Pretty Little Liars" and how the girls were sad that Ali. died but as they remembered the way she treated them they begin to sort of rejoice that "wanna party when the funneral ends" they don't have to deal with that any longer...especially if you read the book "Perfect" in the p.l.l. series in the begining of the book the Spencer has a flash back of the girls talking about how they sometimes they wished Alison would die

    When i read the lyrics of this song , i immediately thought of a horror movie plot . Let just say we have a Kliq , a crew of friends , then 1 day , 1 of them accidentally got killed by one or more of the others . The rest of the group decided to keep their mouth shut , but then ' 8 bitter years ' , ' 9 bitter years ' and then ' 10 f'n years ' , they disappeared one by one , leaving the singer ' die in this place ' and ' drown in the fear ' . My thought of the twist here is either the ' zombie friend ' is returning for revenge , or it's all inside the singer's head , driving him crazy and eventually to the point of ' bury his friends ' meaning kill the rest of the group .

    In the Black Parade tour, Gerard asked Frank to explain the meaning of the songs on the B-Sides, Frank Iero Says Kill All Your Friends it's about a drunk man who kills his wife and eventually finds out she doesnt love him and kills all who are important to him.

    I think this song is about war. It connects to Mama and Mother War. A man becomes a soldier to run from his life, all the soldiers are 'a bunch of liars'. They'll all have to 'bury [their] friends' as death is not selective - it takes everyone it touches.
    When the song reaches 'you'll never take me alive...', the drums change to that of marching. The soldiers are marching to war, the only instinct is 'to survive'. Perhaps the soldier was great friends with someone who was killed, and now it's been 'ten fucking years' since they died. Death is devastating.

    This song is about two men that were out drinking and got really drunk. They then drive out to the city where one of the men's girlfriend (the other man was single,) works and they accidentally hit and kill her. The widower (i guess we call him that...) then hides her dead body in his car. Then the cops come to the widower's door. he then tells them that he didn't know anything about the dead body, when they were really going to tell him to move his car from off the spot it was in. so they get curious and enter the house and search for the body. the widower then pulls a gun on them and shoots them through the chest. he piles their bodies in his trunk.

    the next day, the widower cries about the death about the death of the of his girl.

    Eight years later, he finds his girl's cell and sees all the shit she talked and almost started regretted dating her.

    He starts killing all of her friends so that she wont be lonely in heaven. He still loved her.

    The next year, he checks the phone to see if she said anything else and saw she hated his family. Now he wished he could yell at her for disrespecting his family. So, he kills her's so she knows he knows about the things she said.

    The next year he checks AGAIN and finds she hated him. so he kills everyone in town and brutally murders the man he was with in the car when he hit his girl. he then shoots himself so he could torture her in heaven, but realizes his actions would drag him to hell instead of meeting her in heaven and realizes he really did love her after all.

    This is part of the story to Three Cheers but didn't make the album itself.

    I think this song is about a girl (let's call her Sue) and boy(let's call him Joe) that don't meet so often, they've got the same friends and the only time that Sue and Joe meet is when some of their friend dies. After the funeral they have a party and get really pissed.
    And after a while their friend get less and less and soon it'll only them left and Joe wonders who's gonna surivive the longest. I suspect that she wouldn't mind killing him to be the one last standing but I'm not sure...

    btw - this is ONLY my thoughts, I haven't checked anything about the song so don't judge me if I'm totally wrong.
