Theme

This song is the aftermath of Carousel. It is about Melanie trying to distance her ex-boyfriend from her life. She's going crazy and is unable to forget him despite how much she tries to. The only way for her to forget is to remove the idea of his existence from her mind, is by killing him by ending his role in her life.

Lyrics

[Intro]
My condolences
I'll shed a tear with your family
I'll open a bottle up
Pour a little bit out in your memory
I'll be at the wake dressed in all black
I'll call out your name, but you won't call back
I'll hand a flower to your mother when I say goodbye
'Cause baby you're dead to me

[Verse 1]
I need to kill you
That's the only way to get you out of my head
Oh I need to kill you
To silence all the sweet little things you said
I really want to kill you
Wipe you off the face of my earth
And bury your bracelet, bury your bracelet
Six feet under the dirt
Rainy days and black umbrellas
Who's gonna save you now?
Can you cheat from underground?

[Chorus]
My condolences
I'll shed a tear with your family
I'll open a bottle up
Pour a little bit out in your memory
I'll be at the wake dressed in all black
I'll call out your name, but you won't call back
I'll hand a flower to your mother when I say goodbye

[Post-Chorus]
'Cause baby you're dead to me
(I'll mourn you when you go)
Baby you're dead to me
(I'll mourn you when you go)

[Verse 2]
I need to say sorry
That's the only thing you say when you lose someone
I used to say I'm sorry
For all of the stupid shit you've done
So now I'm really sorry
Sorry for being the apologetic one
But if I told you I cared, if I told you I cared
You would think I was crazy

[Chorus]
My condolences
I'll shed a tear with your family
I'll open a bottle up
Pour a little bit out in your memory
I'll be at the wake dressed in all black
I'll call out your name, but you won't call back
I'll hand a flower to your mother when I say goodbye

[Outro]
'Cause baby you're dead to me
(I'll mourn you when you go)
Baby you're dead to me
(I'll mourn you when you go)
'Cause baby you're dead to me
