VampireInTheCemetary:
The song was written about a friend of Gerard and Mikey's, who committed suicide just days before MCR left for their first tour. She allegedly shot herself in her bathroom, and Gerard wrote this song about her while he was grieving.

hmmmmm good thought
i bet you that might be it

The "don't do it" part sounds really slurred in the background, no wonder somepeople are missing it.

Contrary to the belief that it was a friend of both Gerard and Mikey, wasn't it a girlfriend Gerard had in college, while he was still studying art? The lyric "And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard" pushes a romantic relationship, and I doubt Mikey and Gerard would have had a romance with a female friend of theirs.

Well, I wonder if perhaps it is indeed partially about a friend, but the "kiss" bit could be reference to the Demolition Lovers. I believe the song could pertain to both.

I think that it is about a woman who cheated on her husband/boyfriend then he found out and got really mad at her then started abusing her so she decided to commit suicide in her bathroom.

Personally i believe this song is from the husband`s point of view. My version is the wife tells her husband she has been cheating on him and she cant live with the shame so she comitts suicide.

I miss you, I miss you so far
And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard

Back home, off the run
Singing songs that make you slit your wrists
It isn't that much fun, staring down a loaded gun
So I won't stop dying, won't stop lying
If you want I'll keep on crying
Did you get what you deserve?
Is this what you always want me for?

it seems like the husband is saying it doesnt matter what she did he just wants her back and he is crying about it
after all this is just what i have thought about the song feel free to message and discuss it

it's not about a chick cheating, gerard siad in an interview it was about his and mikeys friend who commited suicide. he's hoping this song can help people relize how hurt their friends are if they commit suiside, thats why in the background they say don't do it. and then it says "do you care at all?are you there at all" they want to helpand save lives. this song hands down saved mine.

you know the 'dont do it' part? i've been trying so hard to hear it for the past few years and i still can't hear it! grrs. i think it's about adultery but i feel that the guy whom she committed adultery with thinks that she's only having an affair with him for her own sake but despite knowing the truth he still misses her.

i think when it saws"and the collision of your kiss that made it so hard" maybe about meeting her, cause in a way a its a collision to meet someone cause you never know what might possibley happen between you two, and in some countrie its costumery to kiss a girls hand when you first meet

Well what i thought it meant was about a girl he was very close to, and one day commit suicide and found her on her bathroom floor " they found you on the bathroom floor" and maybe it is about a girl but they seem to be writing a lot of their songs about a girl (i think) dying or leaving gerard, having him write songs with words like " i miss you" and other lyrics not in revenge but also it seems to appear on TBP =]
