Virginia was a lot lizard from FLA
She had a compound fracture in the trunk
It started when she ran away
Thumbs out on the interstate
She hitched a ride to misery

Mr. Whirly had a catastrophic incident
He fell into the city by the bay
He...

    I don't know what the song is actually about but 1st of all: I checked out this song earlier today, 2nd of all: the melody of the song, the song title itself, and even the lyrics of the song, actually reminds me a lot of my personal favorite character: "Misery" from one of my favorite cartoons Ruby Gloom. since Misery knows about history related things that unsuccessfully turned out really wrong years ago and I think I'm guessing the lyrics of the song mentions several historical events, does it? so the melody, the lyrics, even the song title fits the Ruby Gloom character "Misery" herself, it fits her really well don't you think? :)

    ~Virginia was a lot lizard from FLA
    She had a compound fracture in the trunk
    It started when she ran away
    Thumbs out on the interstate
    She hitched a ride to misery~

    Virginia was a hooker/street walker in a certain town, but then she got beat up or something. Thus she ran away and hitched a ride to somewhere else, which turned out to be worst then the place she had came from.

    ~Mr. Whirly had a catastrophic incident
    He fell into the city by the bay
    He liquidated his estate
    Now he sleeps upon the haight
    Pan handling misery~

    "Mr. Whirly" cheated the mob, or some kind of crime ring, so he got killed because he cheated them, thus he is dead the whole misery plot over again.

    ~And he's gonna get high-igh-igh
    When he's low low low
    The fire burns from better days
    And she screams, "Why, oh why?"
    I said, "I don't know"
    The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
    Of misery~

    He thought that a high would make him feel better, but now he's just a brunt out. His lover or someone who cares about him wants to know why he has done this, and he has no clue why.

    ~Well Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam
    He ran the drug cartel in Tinseltown
    They found him in a Cadillac
    Bludgeoned with a baseball bat
    In the name of misery~

    He was killed.

    ~Regina hit the road to New York City
    Mysteriously the night Vinnie croaked
    She stopped in Vegas to elope
    With Virginia and the dope
    And kissed the bride eternally~

    They left, after they killed a man, and they stopped to elope, and sadly they both died from a OD, seeing as how it says 'kissed the bride eternally.'

    ~Hell hounds on your trail now once again boy
    It's groping on your leg until it sleeps
    The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow
    Cause it's not what you make it's what you leave~

    You're past will always be there, and until you can expect it you'll never get pass it. You'll always regret the big mistakes in you'r life. The last line, just says, that no matter what you have made out of your life, it's how you lived it that truly matters.

    (This is just how I think of what this song means.)
