“The longer the album was out, the more and more it gained importance. i noticed over the years that people started to look back at their period of music and that era and ‘The Black Parade’ always comes up as one of the records of that era. But that’s been the crazy thing to see. Even the world that is in the record emerge through people’s art and writing into this entire universe. It’s been amazing to see the album regarded in the way it is today.
I feel like originally was a kind of warning. it felt like a display of organs that you reach in deep to and pull out for everything to take a look at. It’s exciting that people are discovering that again. But what’s the message? Stay alive. Live your life. Be kind. Don’t be so hard on yourself.”
