Roses are red
And violets are blue
One day we’ll cruise down Blood Gulch Avenue

It’s red versus red
And blue versus blue
It’s I against I and me against you

Violets are blue
Roses are red
Living like this we were already dead

Hop in my car it don’t have any doors
It’s build like a cat
It lands on all fours
My cars like a puma
It drives on all fours

It's red versus red
Blue versus blue

    My InterpretationPersonally, i see this song as being a culmination of all the fights everyone has had in that god forsaken canyon, Blood Gulch.

    But looking at a much wider picture, it could also resemble all conflicts we have with ourselves, others, etc.

    #referencing team colored division

    One day we’ll cruise down Blood Gulch Avenue
    #referencing map name used to record first episodes

    Living like this we were already dead
    #referencing AI origin status, especially Tex (Real one is dead)

    Hop in my car it don’t have any doors
    It’s build like a cat
    It lands on all fours
    My cars like a puma
    It drives on all fours
    #referencing one of first dialogs, where they discuss apperance and name of vehicle Warthog.
