“So, after Black Parade we were like... Anyway, we made a bunch of songs and we really liked them and something didn’t feel right, I don’t know what the fuck it was, but whatever. We didn’t put it out. And, then we made Danger Days which we fucking loved. And that was rad. And we’re playing some of the stuff off Conventional Weapons. There’s a few songs on that that we never released because we rerecorded them for Danger Days. One of those is a song called Bulletproof Heart, but that was the title that came later. It was originally always called Trans Am.” x
Amphitrite (Αμφιτριτη meaning ‘Encircling Third’) was the goddess queen of the sea, wife of Poseidon (god of the sea), and eldest of the fifty Nereides (sea nymphs) in Greek mythology. When Poseidon first sought Amphitrite's hand in marriage, she fled his advances, and hid herself away near Atlas in the ocean stream at the far ends of the earth. Delphin (god of the dolphins) eventually tracked her down and persuaded her to return to wed the sea-king which resulted in the birth of their son Tritôn. Sadly not much else is known about Amphitrite but she does show up in various works of art from the time. In them she always wears the robes of a queen, and carries a three-pointed sceptre called a Trident.

“When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times… I learned very early in life that: ‘Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain’t got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend - without a song’. So I keep singing a song. Goodnight. Thank you.”
