My condolences. I'll shed a tear
with your family.
I'll open a bottle up, and 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 black.
I'll hand a flower to your...

    Melanie had someone who meant a lot to her, Could be platonic or not, either way that person had to leave. Melanie couldn't get that person out of their head so she went and "killed him".

    She is talking about someone stuck in her mind. He won’t go away and she acts like he’s dead. She doesn’t want to think about him so she says he’s dead to her. This never had anything to do with murder.

    Everyone's saying this is about Melanie losing sanity and murdering the guy that cheated on her, but I couldn't disagree more. It's more-so about her trying to get him out of her head. He is't actually dead, but his existence, to her, is. The lyrics about the funeral just adds to this figurative language. He isn't literally dead, but he's dead to her. She doesn't fuck with him anymore.

    Crybaby loved someone but they weren't who she thought they where. She needed to "Kill Them" or get them completely out of her head or she'll take him back. She's sorry because she really liked him and thought he was a good person but he pushed to until she knew the truth.

    This song is about a guy she was with. He cheated on her, but he didn't think she knew. She kept thinking about it and she lost it and killed him,but she just acted like she didn't and went to the funeral and mourned.
