To The End song meanings

This song was based on a short story by William Faulkner, "A Rose For Emily". Emily falls in love with a man named Homer.. however he's always looking at men, so it is assumed that he's homosexual. Anyway she ends up killing him (he won't marry her when she proposes) with cyanide, and keeps his dead body in her room, where she sleeps with it. So unless it's a coincidence I think that is what the song is about.
