This Is The Best Day Ever was one of the last tracks from Bullets to be completed.


The song was written about several stays in the hospital that Gerard made while making the album due to ill health. The title refers to how happy he would be on the day he left hospital for good.

I wrote the lyrics for This Is The Best Day Ever the morning of, and I remember hopping in a car, getting Dunkin’ Donuts, still having not finished them.

And we can run, from the backdrop of these gears and scalpels
At every hour goes the tick-tock bang of monitors as
They stared us down when we met in the emergency room
And in our beds, I could hear you breathe with help from cold machines

Every hour, on the hour, they drew blood

Well I felt I couldn’t take, another day inside this place
From silent dreams we never wake, and in this promise that we’ll make
Starless eyes for heaven’s sake, but I hear you anyway
Well I thought I heard you
Say I like you, we can get out
We don’t have to stay, stay inside this place

Someday, this day, we kept falling down
Someday, this day, set the ferris wheel ablaze
You left my heart an open wound
And I love you for
This day, someday we kept falling down
One day, this day all we had to keep us safe
And if we never sleep again, it would never end
Well I thought I heard you say to me
We’ll go so far, far as we can
And I just can’t stay, one day we’ll run away
