Red: Death of Me

[Verse 1]
I should've seen all the signs all around me
But I was comfortable inside these wounds
So go ahead and take another piece of me now
While we all bow down to you

[Chorus]
You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all and still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding and you will be the death of me

[Verse 2]
How can you help my affliction
If you're the sickness and not the cure
Too long I've faked this addiction
Another sacrifice to make us pure

[Chorus]
You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all and still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding and you will be the death of me

[Chorus]
You tear me down and then you pick me up (Oooh, ooooh)
You take it all but still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me (Oooh, ooooh)
But I'm still bleeding and you will be the death of me

[Bridge]
I won't forget, I cannot forget this
I won't forget, I'll never forget this
I won't forget, I cannot forget this
I won't forget, I'll never forget
I won't forget, I cannot forget this
I won't forget, I'll never forget this
I won't forget, I cannot forget this
I won't forget, I'll never forget

I know I can never prove this illusion
You aren't the one that I thought you were
So I learn to embrace this delusion
The line that separates us starts to blur

[Chorus]
You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all but still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding and you will be the death of me

[Outro]
(Oooh, ooooh)
And you will be the death of me
I won't forget, I cannot forget this! (Oooh, ooooh)
And you will be the death of me
(Oooh, ooooh)
(Oooh, ooooh)
(Oooh, ooooh)

You're Somebody Else by Flora Cash.

It reminds me of past instances where I read people wrongly, but then eventually understood that they were taking advantage of me and why. (I also like the music video, as it's a symbolic animation about peeling back the layers of an identity.) When I'm in a reflective mood, then I usually feel this song a lot.

I interpret it like this:
Manipulators are playing a social game. Seeing through their manipulation is metaphorically winning this game--"I held the better cards"--but I feel fortunate to have been able to have seen through manipulation at some points in my life. I feel that this is also reflected in the lyrics, "every stroke of luck."
Since I did eventually realize, and they were winning for a while, they "held the balance of the time/that only blindly I could read you."
Yet, eventually realizing that someone isn't who they seemed still hurts. It's a sort of death, because the person who was thought to be there is gone forever, despite never really being there to begin with. They look like themselves, but they're somebody else.
And I feel like the first and last lines, "I saw the part of you that only when you're older/ You will see too, you will see too" is in reference to how manipulators feel superior and justify deception. One day, when old, then they will have moments alone, where they will reflect on the sum of their lives. I think that ego is harder to maintain in those moments, and that the pain caused to others becomes harder to justify. At that point, then they likely can't be in full denial anymore, and will also see that ugly part--even if they don't want to. They probably won't change, probably will still try denial, but they'll know truth deep down.
So, I'm not going to bold parts of the lyrics, because I have feelings on all the words.

Lyrics:

Quote:
I saw the part of you
That only when you're older you will see too
You will see too
I held the better cards
But every stroke of luck has got a bleed through
It's got a bleed through
You held the balance of the time
That only blindly I could read you
But I could read you
It's like you told me
Go forward slowly
It's not a race to the end

~Chorus~
Well you look like yourself
But you're somebody else
Only it ain't on the surface
Well you talk like yourself
No, I hear someone else though
Now you're making me nervous

You were the better part
Of every bit of beating heart that I had
Whatever I had
I finally sat alone
Pitch black flesh and bone
Couldn't believe that you were gone

~Chorus x4~

I saw the part of you that only when you're older
You will see too, you will see too

Remember This

Yeah, they say when we grow up
You'll understand when you're older
Guess I'm still a kid, I don't know it
If I'll ever let go of this (yeah)
Say goodbye to the old me
We ain't friends anymore, you don't know me (real music)
I know I could die any moment
If I do just remember this
Yeah, handouts create lazy people I'm not impressed with
You want something in life, then why don't you go and get it?
Actions speak louder than words do, it's pretty quiet, isn't it?
Look at the world we live in, defined by comment sections
Surround yourself with people that challenge how you think
Not people that nod their head and act like they agree
Those people will cut you open just to watch you bleed
Always be yourself, not the person that you pretend to be, no!
These people gon' tell you that you will never make it
Then when you do, they gon' say they knew you were goin' places
That's just how it works, next thing you know you'll be overrated
Hearing people say they miss the "old you, " it's crazy, ain't it?
And perfect people don't exist, so don't pretend to be one
I don't need pats on the back from people for my achievements
When I die I wanna know that I lived for a reason
Anyone can take your life, but not what you believe in, no
Yeah, they say when we grow up
You'll understand when you're older
Guess I'm still a kid, I don't know it
If I'll ever let go of this
Say goodbye to the old me
We ain't friends anymore, you don't know me
I know I could die any moment
If I do just remember this
Yeah, don't take opinions from people that won't listen to yours
If money's where you find happiness, you'll always be poor
If you don't like the job you have, then what do you do it for?
The cure to pain isn't something you buy at liquor stores, nah
The real you is not defined by the size of your office
The real you is who you are when ain't nobody watchin'
You spend your whole life worried about what's in your wallet
For what? That money won't show up in your coffin, woo!
Yeah, anger's a liar, he ain't got no respect
I fell in love with my pain and I slept with my regrets
Happiness saw it happen, maybe that's why she up and left
Joy called me a cheater, said she ain't coming back
I've always had a problem with relationships
But that's what happens when you see the world through a broken lens
Mistakes can make you grow, that doesn't mean you're friends
Who you are is up to you, don't leave it up to them, no
Yeah, they say when we grow up
You'll understand when you're older
Guess I'm still a kid, I don't know it
If I'll ever let go of this
Say goodbye to the old me
We ain't friends anymore, you don't know me
I know I could die any moment
If I do just remember this
Yeah, they say you got into music, you signed up to be hated
That's kinda weird cause I don't remember signing my name up
Coming from people that give advice but never take none
I like my privacy, but, lately, I feel it's invaded
I heard that life's too short, don't let it pass you by
We waste a lot of time crying over wasted time
It's not about what people think, it's how you feel inside
My biggest failures in life are knowing I never tried, woo!
I look at the world from a different angle
People change, even Satan used to be an angel
Think twice before you're bitin' on the hand that made you
Don't believe what you believe just 'cause that's how they raised you
Think your own thoughts, don't let them do it for you
Say you want a drink, don't wait for people to pour it on you
Cut out the lies, stay close to the people you know are loyal
Grab your own glass and fill it, don't let your fear destroy you, woo!
