Album: I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your LoveReleased: 2002
This song is about a man and his wife who run away while trying to hide from vampires. Unfortunately, his wife gets bitten by a vampire, and though she says she loves him very much, he is forced to kill her before she becomes a vampire.
Monroeville is the town in Pennsylvania where the mall scenes from the movie Dawn Of The Dead
were shot. Lead singer Gerard Way said the song was inspired by the movie:
"The man and his love are hiding from the living dead, who are coming to kill them. Since the town is surrounded by mountains, they cannot get out. The living dead attacks the woman, and she turns into one of them. Though he loves her, he is faced with the difficult reality - he must take a gun to her in order to survive and 'End this direst.' Because she loved him and he loved her, the decision to kill her made 'things harder at best.'"
