"Red Flag" as written by Mercedes Lander and Morgan Lee Lander....
I feel trapped and it's all
In my dirty hands
These walls are closing in

You always were so hard
To please
You thought you had me on
My knees

I think I'm going under
Red flags for all of this

You're cold and calculating
A knife held to my lips
And this anticipating
Blade bleeding for a kiss

This is the day, and you wait
Is this fate, laying waste
And you'll stay here forever
Stay here forever

And all that's left are scars
And lies
Whispering while beauty dies

I claw my neck for answers
As last life slips away

Take me away

    General CommentI reckon it's about a girl who's so upset that her boyfriend left her that she commits suicide. Again I may be completely wrong but hey this is my intepretation:

    "I feel trapped and its all in my dirty hands
    These walls are closing in"
    She's trapped inside her suicidal state of mind and she feels like all her options have run out, there's nothing left to live for

    "You always were so hard to please
    You thought you had me on my knees"
    She's saying he was always a hard guy to please (duh) and he thought he had control over her all along

    "I think I'm going under
    Red flags for all of this"
    And it turns out he really does

    "You're cold and calculating
    A knife held to my lips
    And this anticipating
    Blade bleeding for a kiss"
    She longs for the day that she can touch him and kiss him again but so far the only thing touching her is the blade (self harm?)

    "This is the day and you wait
    Is this fate, laying waste
    And you'll stay here forever
    Stay here forever"
    Today is the day she will die, just he wait...it's fate to her, even though it's a cruel fate to live up to and she's saying he'll be stuck without her forever and he'll stay there cos she doesn't want his pain once she's dead

    "And all thats left are scars and lies
    Whispering while beauty dies"
    All that's left of her are old self harm scars and the lies he told and she can hear whispers from others while she's slowly dying inside

    "I claw my neck for answers
    As last life slips away"
    She hangs herself, but while she's slowly dying she's trying to get out of it cos she wants to know why he did this to her?

    "Take me away"
    Well yeah, death takes her from the world

    General Commenti my mind i see this song as wanting something so bad that it wears you down and tears at you, it'd say its about a guy tho tearing her down because of the scars he left behind and how she wants death and its coming

    General CommentI feel trapped and its all
    In my dirty hands
    These walls are closing in.
    You always were so hard
    To please
    You thought you had me on
    My knees.
    I think I'm going under
    Red flags for all of this.

    I think is all about. How she was so in love with this guy. That betary her so much. That she want to die so bad.

    You're cold and calculating
    A knife held to my lips
    And this anticipating
    Blade bleeding for a kiss.

    It hurt so much. That she want the pain to stop. But the only she is harming her self. because she want this suffering to stop.

    "This is the day and you wait"
    Is this how he really about
    "Is this fate, laying waste"
    Was all these feeling she felt for him was a waste of time. Did he really care for her
    " And you'll stay here forever
    Stay here forever."
    She is still in love with this guy. But at the sametime he beatary. And she feel so ashamed that she trusted him.
    with all her life

    And all thats left are scars
    And lies
    Whispering while beauty dies.

    All the love he had for was fake. And thing he said to her was lies. And she so confuse. that she doesn;t know what to do.

    I claw my neck for answers
    As last life slips away.

    She want to know. Why he did this to her.

    I think this is a part. When it hard to heard. What she saying. But i got it.

    " To be and don't live
    To be...."

    As she slowly dieing. She wonder why this happen to her. what did she do wrong.

    Take me Away.

    Well ya. she dies.
