"The Cheap Bouquet" as written by and Victor Vincent/fuentes Fuentes....
Stay young
And at the top of our lungs
Our hands are free
Our lives have just begun
It's getting dark we should go back
But what's the use if what you love is what you have
And I could die right now
For something beautiful to take me somewhere else

Oh, I try
But I can't calm down
As I drag myself along these severed hands
Are doing the very best they can
I'm gonna buy a cheap bouquet
Before it dies on the display

Gonna break down
Break down the better side of me
The better side of me
Well I know, I know
If I die young

Then we can wake up screaming in your bed
And our lungs are begging us to calm down
And I scare myself with all that talk of severing
Doing the best or so it seems
You've been mistaken

Your finger is on the scale
Burn like you never have before
Stop, drop and roll don't work in hell
So what if I forget regret
So what if I
So what if I forget regret
I want you to know that I
That I've wrote this line a thousand times Forget regret
This must be the way it ends
Calm down

As I drag myself along these severed hands
Are doing the very best they can
As I drive my car into the sea
I taste you like a hammer through my teeth
Will someone tell me what it means

To be alive
It feels just like the feeling when you die
Oh, alright
I'm dead and I don't care if it's cold outside anymore
So come on
Let's have some fun

    My InterpretationSo to me this song is about suicide. In the beginning "Stay young and at the top of our lungs. Our hands are free.Our lives have just begun" to me this means the person's life has barely just began.

    "It's getting dark, we should go back
    But what's the use if what you love is what you have?
    And I could die right now
    For something beautiful to take me somewhere else
    Oh, I try to calm down.
    As I drag myself along these severed hands
    (Severed hands) Are doing the very best they can" To me this means that the person is going into depression and suicide. Trying so hard to get past the pain.

    "I'm gonna buy a cheap bouquet. Before it dies on the display" meaning the person is going to try and find the beauty/hope (bouquet) within himself no matter how small. (cheap) before it disappears.

    And then it goes into, what if there's no hope in getting out of this hell. ("stop drop and roll dont work in hell")
    Even though you are trying so hard, "what if I forget regret?" meaning even though I might not be able to save myself now, what if I just stop living life regretting every single mistake.

    General CommentAbout the "forget regret" line, I personally think he is going to let go of all his past regrets and stop thinking about them, he is forgetting all that he is ashamed for.

    favorite lines;
    "And our lungs are begging us to calm down"
    "Gonna break down, break down the better side of me"
    I want you to know that I, that I've wrote this line a thousand times"

    General CommentNo comments eh? What a shame! lol.
    Well this song, for me, is quite confusing. He seems to be trying to commit suicide for the wrongdoings his girlfriend has commited against him perhaps. "Burn like you never have before, Stop drop and roll don't work in Hell" So she must've done something to cause such harsh feelings towards her, and he says "I taste you like a hammer through my teeth" which is far from a good thing. lol. Back to the suicide, this seems evident when he says "As I drive my car into the sea" and he seems to want to know how it feels to be dead, so he's going to try it out lol. "So come on, let's have some fun"
