"Dead N' Gone" as written by and -/jyrki 69 Bazie....
She's done with playing Jesus
She's gonna need a friend
I don't wanna stay here
Cause I know how this will end

She had another falling
She knows just what to do
Just like Sid and Nancy
I will be bleeding after you

Dead n gone!
Like a sad song!
Baby hold on!

Dead n gone!
I can play along!
Baby so long!
Dead n gone!

She's done with playing Jesus
She knows just what to do
I don't wanna stay here
I will be bleeding after you

D-d-d dead n gone!
Like a sad song!
Baby hold on!

Dead n gone!
I can play along!
Baby so long!

Dead n gone!
Like a sad song!
Baby hold on!

Dead n gone!

Just to lay here and light turned
Just to hold it in
But if blood can lie then...

I don't need your love!!

Dead n gone!
Like a sad song!
Baby hold on!

Dead n gone!
I can play along!
Baby so long!

Dead n gone!
Like a sad song!
Baby hold on!

Dead n gone!
I can play along!
Baby so long!
Dead n gone!

I cannot stay I cannot play along
Dead n gone
It's so called ruined just like a sad song
Dead n gone!
Why do we stay why do we play along
Dead n gone!
It's so called ruined just like a sad song
Dead n gone...
Dead n gone...

    General CommentThis is my interpretation:

    It's a love song, about knowing that the relationship won't work out, but knowing how hard it will be to let go so you try to keep the relationship together.

    "She's done with playing Jesus, she's gonna need a friend" means that she's done with praying to stay alive, and she's going to need someone to bring down with her. This is metaphorical though. In the relationship, she's done with trying to keep the relationship alive and if her heart gets broken, so will his.

    The line "Just like Sid and Nancy, I will be bleeding after you" refers to Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen. Nancy was found dead in a hotel room, and a few months after, Sid committed suicide with a note saying that they had a death pact, and to bury him next to Nancy. The song is saying that if one of them gets hurt, the other will too.

    So the line "I don't wanna stay here, I will be bleeding after you" means that he doesn't want to stay in the relationship, because if he does, they'll both end up getting hurt in the end.

    "Why do we stay, why do we play along" is saying why do people stay in the relationship and pretend everything is good when it's not going to work out?
    "I can play along, baby so long" means that he can only pretend it's fine for a while.
