My Chemical Romance: Sing Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2010
Boy you got to sing what tomorrow brings
Sing it out,
Girl you got to be what tomorrow needs
For every time that they want to count you out
Use your voice
Every single time you open up your mouth
Sing it for the boys, sing...

This song, I actually came to this website looking for an interpretation myself, but when I found it didn't have one, I decided to write my thoughts. I think the song basically means that the generation today, has to speak up and be like, the leaders of tomorrow. "Sing it out, boy you got to see what tomorrow brings, Sing it out, girl you got to be what tommorow needs," we gotta speak and look ahead to what is coming in the future and learn to be what the world will need for what the future holds. "For every time, that they want to count you out, use your voice, every single time you open up your mouth," lots of older people today don't care what the young people have to say, and every time they wanna shut them out, the kids of today gotta talk their own opinions no matter what. The chorus, basically the entire thing says, "Sing it for the world and for everyone who can't speak for themselves ("sing it for the deaf, sing it for the blind") And it's also saying that we have to speak up before the leaders we have today screw us up too much and when they drown us out, we have to speak louder, which is what these lines are saying, "Sing it out, boy they're gonna sell what tommorow needs, sing it out, girl they're gonna kill what tommorow brings, You've got to, make a choice if the music drowns you out, and raise your voice every single time they try and shut your mouth." And then the next part of the song seems to me, to be like a chant, or something, getting louder and louder, the "Cleaned up corporation progress, dying in the process," and "Children that can talk about it," because whats goin on now, the kids will be the ones affected and will be the ones to talk about it in the future. And "Sell it till your last days, buy yourself the motivation!" meaning never quiet down until you die and get the motivation to do so. Then the next lines confuse me a little, but, "I am not the singer that you wanted but a dancer," I think might mean that I am not what you wanted, I am what I want to be and have my own opinions, and it also says, "Talk about the past sir, and wrote it for the ones that wanna get away," might mean that you need to talk about the past to know anything about the future, and they are talking down on people who dont want anything to do with today's problems, and that is who they wrote the song for to kind of motivate them. And they end with the chorus basically to again reinforce the fact to people that they must get involved and speak loud their own opinions. That is what I think the song is saying, just they use more... "musical" terms in saying it. Thanx for reading took a lot of time in writing this.:)

I believe that this song is about standing up for what you love and what you believe in.
"Sing it for the boys,
Sing it for the girls" is basicly saying that you need to say what you wanna say
"sing it for the ones that'll hate your guts" and
"For every time that want to count you out, use your voice every time you open up your mouth" both mean that no matter who doesn't like what you say or believe, you should not care what they think. Every man, woman, and child is entitled to thier own opinions and beliefs.
"sing it out, girl they're gonna kill what tomorrow needs" means that now is the best time to voice your opinions and beliefs, because there isn't much time left, because you grow closer to dying every day, and you never know exactly when you die. This is a beautiful song, and I firmly believe that this song is a great reminder to voice your beliefs.

I think the whole meaning of the song is basically 'speak up and stand up for yourself and don't let anyone tell you different'

THIS IS THE BEST SONG
This song was my favorite thing, I listened to this about 6382 times. I still listen to it after all this time, I’m still into it.

I took this as a song about protesting. That may be a little far fetched, but please read this:
"Sing it out, boy you got to see what tomorrow brings."
Meaning that the law may or may not change due to his actions, but it's worth a shot!
"Sing it out, girl you got to be what tomorrow needs."
Tomorrow, something terrible will happen again if we don't speak out about it.
"For every time that they want to count you out, use your voice every single time you open up your mouth"
Share your putrid opinions with the world or nothing will happen!
"SING IT FOR THE BOYS, SING IT FOR THE GIRLS, EVERY TIME THAT YOU LOSE IT SING IT FOR THE WHOLE WORLD!"
Duh, protest...the whole chorus is about protesting a little more specifically.
"Sing it out, boy they're gonna sell what tomorrow means!"
The newspapers have the protest featured in it, giving people an idea of a new and improved future.
"Sing it out, girl before they kill what tomorrow brings!"
People have an idea of what the world should look like. If something doesn't match your idea of a perfect world, then they'll just fight that.
"You've got to make a choice if the music drowns you out, and raise your voice every single time they try and shut your mouth!"
Make a choice: Either go to prison for protesting or stay home and live in a sad blanket of silence. And when you're protesting, and people are hating your ideas and stuff along that line, then ignore them and keep on going with your mindset.
Skip a few verses...just repeating the chorus...
"Cleaned up cooperation progress, dying in the process
Children that can talk about it
Living on the railways
People moving sideways
Sell it til your last days"
Technically saying that you're trying to fix the world with a risk of dying. People who are homeless are protested for and against, I couldn't think of much better than that for that line...the society is bent...and we'll keep on sharing our ideas until we die.
"Buy yourself motivation, generation nothing, nothing but a dead scene, product of a white dream, I am not the singer that you wanted but a dancer, I refuse to answer, talk to the past, sir, wrote it for the ones who want to get away!"
Buy yourself motivation....all I can think of is pep drugs. Generation nothing, we're lazy and haven't been much help. Nothing but a dead scene, switching perspectives from an old person who probably thinks millenials and gen zers are lazy and worthless, and the kids probably think that old people are good as dead since they're so old. Product of a white dream, I believe, means white supremecy, which has been protested against a lot lately. More BLM, actually, I think. Not a singer but a dancer...I may have wrote that in a way that makes it look like Gerard is saying he is a dancer, not a singer. I think he means that kids like Tik Tok dances, so he changed his dream of being a singer to be a dancer for popularity. I guess that's protested against...YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER HOW DARE YOU - I think this is about how people don't have much of an idea why they're protesting. Like, with George Floyd, people protested because a white cop killed a black person who payed someone with a counterfit 20 dollar bill, but they don't know if George attacked the cops first or if the cop kneeling on his throat thought it was fine and he was just trying to get free. I have no proof of that either btw. Talk about the past? I am! Okay, so I think they mean it as an answer after they have a gun to their head, so they will answer instead of refuse (what). And their answer is to look back at the terrible things that happened. Wrote it for the ones who want to get away, that is, I think, supposed to break the 4th wall again and say, like, "WE NEED YOU TO SPEAK OUT OR WE'LL BE STUCK IN THE SOCIETY AJJ SINGS ABOUT!!!" So yeah
Never stop spreading your message kiddo!
This is just my guess. It's probably not accurate.

I believe they are saying everyone with good intentions has to speak up and do whats right, stand up to those who are doing something wrong, speak for those who cant (the blind/deaf/someone who is scared/has no way to) and use any advantage you get to make the world a better place for tomorrow...
anonymous Dec 30th 2013 report
It's trying to say, do what you love. Who cares what people do or think? As long as you're happy, that's all that matters.

I believe it is a song against the corporate agenda, the depth of which the illuminati has infiltrated every aspect of our lives. Music is the MOST influence means of media on the human mind and spirit, what better way to "Drone" people then through music. Simply the illuminati is wanting our souls, each and everyone and I do hope that MCR is on the side of the good guys.

I think that this song is basically telling you to sing no matter what anyone says. Its telling you to speak yur mind and let your voice be heard. To cross boundaries and make the world a better place. So use it in the best ways,not the worst.
anonymous Apr 8th 2012 report
My interpretation of the song SING is that its saying you have to stand up for those who can't do it for themselves.
"Sing it for the deaf
Sing it for the blind"
You have to speak up for everybody,doesn't matter if you know them or not.
"Sing it for the boys,
Sing it for the girls
Everytime you lose it sing it for the world"
You need to "sing" for the world!

I think it means something different for all of us. For me, personally, it's Anti-Illuminati, and I've Loved MCR all my life. I don;t know what I'd do if they started working for the Illuminati!
Oh, and a question. If we actually had a chance to kill the Illuminati and the Government, would you be in there like a bullet... Or would you walk away?
anonymous Dec 14th 2011 report
Whoever said that about bl/ind... you're right because also in the video the symbol is about a happyface looking up like he's high... it's because that's a subliminal message that we are blind for believing in God... But i believe in god, so SCREW YOU ILLUMINATI AND SATANISTS! no offense given to anyone...:)

Please interpret the line.....
PRODUCT OF A WHITE DREAM.
I would love to hear what you have to say about that.
anonymous Nov 21st 2011 report
You all are wrong. This is propaganda at it's finest. READ the lyrics. Everything mentioned here is immediately then negated. For instance, "Cleaned up Corporation Progess" dies in the process. "Children that can talk about it" are living on the railways. When does motivation ever have to be bought? What generation would ever refer to themselves as "Nothing" and a "Dead Scene". And the fact that because they are "Generation Nothing" is because they are the "Product of White Dream." Then after telling everyone to sing their heart out.....you are not a singer after all, you are a dancer merely going throught the motions.
Cleaned up, corporation progress
Dying in the process
Children that can talk about it
Living on the railways
People moving sideways
Sell it 'til your last days
Buy yourself the motivation
Nothing but a dead scene
Product of a white dream
I am not the singer that you wanted but a dancer.
They lyrics "SING" for themselves.
anonymous Jul 4th 2011 report
I think this song has a very strong meaning that you should stand up for yourself and for others who can't. I think the lyrics "dying in the process, children that can talk about it livin on the webways" means that children these days are spending so much of their time in cyberspace, the real world is dying. This song is really just saying that people need to "see what tomorrow brings" and make a stand to change it for the better.

To me, this song is about standing up for what you believe in, whether your opinions are followed by others, or you're standing alone.
It tells me to stand against mainstream corporations, (ex: BL/ind), and step away from the conforming state that the world is being pushed into.
This is one of the most moving songs on the Danger Days album; and it seems to push a the most meaning of the band, out into one song.
