This song is about friendship. The lyrics, "stand up f--king tall, don't let them see your back," and, "Take my f--king hand and never be afraid again," are saying that there are people in the world who are out to get you, but if you have your friends with you then you'll be all right.
When performing this live, Gerard Way often said something like: "You probably came with your best friend or one of your best friends... I want you to turn to that motherf--ker, grab him by the throat and say, 'You're my best f--king friend, and I would die for you!'"
Gerard Way has said that his favorite lyric from one of his own songs came from this one: "How wrong we were to think that immortality was never dying."
