I researched a lot for this. Just saying.

There are many debated theories to the meaning of Cemetery Drive. The most popular one being that the song is about adultery, the tale of a woman who has been cheating on her husband ("So I won't stop dying, won't stop lying" ), and can no longer stand the pain of keeping it a secret. She takes her own life ("They found you on the bathroom floor/[...]Singing songs that make you slit your wrist/It isn't that much fun, staring down a loaded gun" ).

A second, more personal theory is that 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.


Ok, I'm done.

Hm...before reading that I thought it was about a person having a hard time killing herself...like she wanted to die...but she just couldn't. Neutral

Yeah.
That's why in the background you can hear him say "don't do it" over and over again.
Cause he doesn't wan her to kill herself.

The "don't do it" part is very faint. He whispers it during the chorus. I really had to listen, and I don't think I would have understood what he was saying if someone didn't tell me.

It is like this woman and she is cheating on her husband and she meets this guy at the cemetary like, regularly and she dies/kills herself/he kills her but she dies ultimately. I think it is in the guy that she cheated with's point of view because he misses her and knows about all that went on. I think.

Like everyone said it's about a chick cheating on her husband with the guy singing the song.... and she's tired of that game already, so she can take it anymore and kills herself, but her lover doesn't want her to die... (the "don't do it" part is so heartbreaking!)
At the end you realize that the lover was just a game, a distraction... and she's very selfish!!! I think the lover was deeply in love with her and she couldn't see that or simply didn't care (If you want I'll keep on crying, did you get what you deserve? is this what you always wanted me for?)

yeah... being the "other one" sucks!!!

Firith On The Floor:
but her lover doesn't want her to die... (the "don't do it" part is so heartbreaking!)

OMG, I totally agree!

For those of you who never caught the "don't do it" part, it's when he's singing "Way down. Way down. Way down." Not at the first "way down"s, but listen to the last two or three and you can hear someone screaming "don't do it!" It's right between the "don't do it's"

I bet it is. It's so emotional, you almost think he's really screaming that to someone he loves who is about to kill themselves.
