Lets go

I kissed the scars on her skin
I still think you're beautiful
And I don't ever wanna lose my best friend
I screamed out god you vulture
Bring her back or take me with her

Tear it down break the barricade
I want to see what...

    No offense to anyone but the actual meaning of this song is to his ex girlfirend. She wasn't depressed or cutting. She had breast cancer and finished her last chemo- therapy treatment. He wrote this song for her to show her how he proud he was of her for dealing with all the pain on her own.

    Well, as the song was dedicated to Vic's ex, the lyrics suggest that it's about a girl (Most likely loved by the narrator of this song) who has been going through depression, and self harm. I'm just assuming this because the opening lyrics "I kissed the scars on her skin, I still think you're beautiful, and I don't ever wanna lose my best friend. I've screamed out 'God you vulture! Bring her back or take me with her'" and the lyrics "She's mine! You stay away from her it's not her time" which I think mean that the narrator of the song is speaking to whoever bullied/did anything to the girl

    what i think is that this song is about a girl who he loves or loved and she is dealing with self harm, depression or anything like that. I got that idea of self harm from the first stanza when it says 'I kissed the scars on her skin,I still think you're beautiful' What i thought here is that even though shes covered in scars he just sees beauty. Also i also think its about how he blames god for taking her away or that he blames her.Because it suggests that shes committed suicide and he blaming her for leaving him and he wanted her stay or he'd go with her. You get the sense that he blames god because it could mean that god could of fixed her but instead god left her to take her own life
    Thats my interpretation.
    But it also could be argued that its about his ex-girlfriend who died due to cancer, and that he still loved her and that she was the one that he will always love, thats why he wrote the song maybe. But if it is i dont see why he'd blame her for it because she cant help getting cancer it sometimes just happens.

    To conclude i would say its more like a girl dealing with self harm/depression etc or that he lost his ex girl friend to cancer and either way he is blaming god for taking her away

    If you watch a PTV interview, Vic says that he wrote this song for his ex gf who was battling breast cancer at the time. So he wrote this song for her. She has fully recovered now.

    The song was a "gift" from Vic to his ex while she was battling breast cancer. She has recovered now though.

    The song is about Vic's ex girlfriend who was battling breast cancer. I believe she fully recovered, though.

    This song is about Vic Fuentes' ex gf or his friend and her battle with cancer, she had scars from the chemo and he knew she was dying but he was outraged at God for allowing this to happen to her.

    this song is about a friend of one of the band members who was battling cancer and had to go through chemo therapy which is why it says "the chemicals will bring you home again." and she probably died because the lyrics also say "bring her back or take me with her"
