okay so i've read every post for the meaning of this song and ppl seem to be depating between the friend who killed herself or adultry. i just want to say that songs can have more than one meaning. maybe he used adultry as a type of metaphor for her death of compared the two or something.

Where has all this adultery business come from? I heard that this was about his grandmother, and/or a good friend. The husband was mentioned, but I figured that was to imply what a jerk he is, and thus how miserable the deceased had been.

Oh, and that link to immortality project was very helpful to hear the "don't do it"s; thank you, Stigmatized Firith. It seems to occur only during the second verse, that I could hear, anyway...

Is the "way down" referring to the burial, I wonder? Or hell? I am a little unsure about that.

Hey, yeah--I hear it, too. But it's right before the "don't do it," not after.

going with the concept of the record, i think that the guy comes back from the dead as a ghost, so his lover can't see him. she's unhappy with her marriage in the dress your husband hates. [i actually think that she's forced into marriage by the guy's murderer, see "it's not a fashion statement..." for details], & misses her former lover & possibly feels guilty for getting re-married, so she kills herself right before the guy comes back fully human & he kisses her as she dies And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard.

this reminds me of romeo & juliet, with the whole bad-timing thing & one person thinking that the other is dead & killing themself but they're actually NOT dead. also the line Is this what you always want me for? makes me think that he's talking to either God or the Devil, which is like when romeo says "oh, i am fortune's fool!"

yeah i'm probably way off..but that's what i think.

Im pretty sure Cemetery Drive is about Gerard's girl friend cheating on him, and then killing herself, because this was a very personal song to Gerard...

At the very beginning of the second verse, the "don't do it"'s begin; they're very quiet, but you can hear them between words. You could go to theimmortalityproject.com and download the stripped version, to hear the song without the main lyrics, to hear it better.

WOW! someone who finnaly has the same idea that i've always had. I always thought "is this what you always want me for" as like, did u always want me as a wife to be here when you dont really want me type of thing. Thanks for clearly presenting, makes me think more indepth when i was earlier second doubting my translation, which is similar but not as thought out as yours. Wink
