"Gravedancer" as written by Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, David G Kushner, Scott Richard Weiland and Mathew William Sorum....
She's all that I see and all that I breathe
Take a breath and hold her in as the shadows whispering
I can hear the laughter, knowing what they're after
And while she flies beside me, a man with broken wings

Take, take a look around, she's a pretty good dancer
She dances on my grave
Every time it goes down, every time she comes down
Every time we fall down, she dances all over me

She's the world in my feet, the sun that gives see
Take a rest and hold her near or she'll float away from here
'Cause I'm knowing what you fearing, an unsentimental jury
And every mile I guide you, I watch over everything

Take, take a look around, she's a pretty good dancer
She dances on my grave
Every time it goes down, every time she comes down
Every time we fall down, she dances all over me

And every time that we fail is just another long wasted night
And the dance that we do is just another way for you to roll over me
And the bed that we're sharing is the home that I wanna bring you
Wanna feel you, oh, I don't wanna hear you

Take, take a look around, she's a pretty good dancer
She dances on my grave
Every time it goes down, every time she comes down
Every time we fall down, she dances all over me
She dances all over me, she dances all over me

She's a pretty good dancer
Take, take, take a look around, she's a pretty good dancer
Pretty, pretty, pretty dancer
Every time she comes down, she comes down, comes down

    General CommentConsidering the bands past drug problems it would seem this song simply refers to a couples unfortnate experiences with the drug culture. With the women being perhaps the greater abuser and bringing more stress to her man when there using. Perhaps thats just his percepting to.

    General CommentI'm not sure what this song is about really, but it's a beatiful song. I love at the end, when Slash is soloing as it fades, and Scott's all "She's a pretty good dancer" - his voice sounds cool at that part.

    General CommentWhat a fantastic song to end the album with. Just as good a closer as 'Atlanta' was.

    General CommentI think this song is about Scott's wife Mary. I think it is about loving his wife very much but trying to give her some space to see how she will do on her own. when it says "She's all that I see, and all that I breathe", its about Mary. Mary means everything to him. then it says "Take, take a look around, Sh'es a pretty good dancer", this is about Scott noticing hw Mary can do fine on her own and Scott is just njow relizing this. I'm sure exactly if this is what it's about but i think it's an idea of what it's about.

    General CommentI believe this song is about his feeling about his drug. 'She' is the drug. 'Everytime we fall down, she dances all over me' is a statement referring to everytime something happens, 'she' is the drug that dances all over him. 'she' is a good dancer and she will probably be the death of him hence 'she dances on my grave'. It's basically the 'feeling' he experiences while he's high, like she's his companion and her doesn't want her to float away, or be far from 'her'
