Bury Me In Black song meanings

Gerard Way is pissed off. Really pissed off - "I wanna see what your insides look like/I bet you're not fucking pretty on the inside". This song was written when Gerard was still a heavy alcoholic, and the song is about a drinking partner he has who has stopped drinking ("You've worn out all your dancing shoes this time"). Gerard is, once again, drunk ("These eyes have had too much to drink again tonight") and is now off to tell his ex-drinking partner just how angry he is at being abandoned. First he tries to call him ("I've been calling you all week for my shotgun/Pick up the phone") but then decided he'll go visit him. He gets into a drunken fight with him ("And well I can explain/What happened to my face late last night".)
