"Once Upon Your Dead Body" as written by Travis Stever, Claudio Sanchez, Michael Todd and Joshua Eppard....
If hello could only drop its "O"
And it stayed in the front door's way
Of your home, would you live there still?
Could that make you everything I hate?
Wait

Do you remember why you did it? (No, I don't)
Do you remember why she left?

No, I hope you die right now,
Will you drink my chemical?

Is there price to burn this paradise?
Where you left all parts that hurt to mend
If I don't stay awake
Will she come here again?
For my wish of only one last kiss

Do you remember why you did it? (No, I don't)
Do you remember why she left?

No, I hope you die right now,
Will you drink my chemical?
And If you cry out loud,
It'll only make me feel too good

Once upon your dead body

    General CommentClaudio Sanchez: “Its Ten Speed trying to get the Writer to kill off Claudio. And the Writer sees it as Ten Speed trying to talk him into killing off his love interest. And the Writer saying he’s no murderer.”
    (I think Claudio said kill off Ambellina not Claudio, AP might have got it wrong.)

    It’s probably accurate that AP mixed up Claudio and Ambellina’s names. That means Ten Speed is continuing his campaign to convince Writer to kill Ambellina to stop his own torture, since she is the anchor to his painful lost relationship with Erica. Still, Writer resists, so Ten Speed continues. This time, Writer begins to accept the idea.

    General Comment"Will you drink my chemical?"

    Chemical? like, poisoned shabuite?
    This might be a reference to killing somebody the in the same fashion as Matthew and Maria.

    There seems to be a lot of references to Claudio, or maybe Al, being pissed at Newo Ikkin. (see Welcome Home, the Suffering, the WIlling Well II: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness) She may be the target of the deathwish in this song as well.

    General Commenti thought she died in "The Willing Well III: Apollo II The Telling Truth" because the lyrics say something like, "jessie, look at what your brother did to that little whore's body" or something along those lies.

    this has to be about someone else, maybe whoever was behind his family's murder.

    General Commentum, dude,

    Josephine's fiance' is named Patrick. (who witnesses Josephines death at the hands of Coheed, but bitches out and runs away)

    Jessie, the prizefighter inferno, is Coheed's brother. Who, at the time of Josephine's death, is out looking for Coheed and Cambria.

    But yeah, Patrick (Josephine's boyfriend-fiance') dies in '33'

    Do you remember why she left?

    No, I hope you die right now,
    Will you drink my chemical?

    For my wish of only one last kiss
