This night, walk the dead
In a solitary style
And crash the cemetery gates.
In the dress your husband hates
Way down, mark the grave
Where the search lights found us
Drinking by the mausoleum door
And they found you on the bathroom floor

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 dyin, won't stop lyin
If you want I'll keep on crying
Did you get what you deserve?
Is this what you always want me for?

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

Way down, way down
Way down, way down
Way down, way down
Way down, way down

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

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

Way down, way down
Way down, way down
Way down, way down
Way down, way down

Way down

    I think this song is about a wife that cheats on her husband. But I think it means something totally different as well.
    "And crash the cemetery gates/In the dress your husband hates"
    This shows she was obviously seeking revenge on her husband, even if it meant just something simple, like wearing the dress he hates that she owns.
    "Where the search lights find us/Drinking by the mausoleum door"
    And this obviously means that she was with another man (not her husband) and thus she was cheating.
    "And they found you on the bathroom floor"
    "It isn't that much fun, staring down a loaded gun"
    And these show that she obviously died, somehow but in the chorus:
    "I miss you, I miss you so far/And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard"
    It suggests that maybe the man she was cheating with helped her by assisted suicide. because he says that it was very hard for him to do it, and that she was depressed, based on this line in the song:
    "singing songs that make you slit your wrists"

    "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?"
    Obviously her husband feels guilty for all the things he did to her, and he still loves her, but maybe she got what she deserved because she cheated on him and all.

    So yeah I think this song is more than just about cheating, but also about assisted suicide.

    It's about a couple of friends that used to meet in the cemetery and drink together. But the woman was married and had problems with her husband, so as a kinda screw you to him she wore a dress the husband dislikes, and used her friend to "relieve stress". I.E. "the collision of your kiss". The part about the song singing is just her at home being depressed and singing songs that make her WANT to slit her wrists. but she actually died by the gun shot. If its to be interpretted that she died. Way Down is just how far down the cemetary graves they were. Or it can be interpretted as way down under. "6 feet under"

    It's kind of like a dangerous romance--you know, you love each other, but it's no use trying, or you'll hurt each other. But--there's always something drawing you back to that certain person, even if they are going to pontentially harm you.
