R.I.P. 2 My Youth Lyrics

R.I.P. to my youth
And you could call this the funeral
I'm just telling the truth
And you can play this at my funeral
Wrap me up in Chanel inside my coffin
Might go to Hell and there ain't no stopping
Might be a sinner and I might be a...

    Hes talking about how the world is cruel it can be for young kids and how it can be a struggle "RIP TO MY YOUTH" can mean that there is so much I've seen and my young and innocence is over.

    In my point of view, he is explaining that his father died and his youth is gone because he must took the role of his father.

    It’s directed towards a mother.
    Some mother child issue here.
    Lack of love from the mother.
    They say if you have love of your mother the child in you stays alive.
    Basically he’s saying goodbye to the mother.
    She locked the doors on him.
    Wish I could dedicate this song to my mother
    As if she would change or ever understand:((

    It's about a man , ostracized in life , no family ... the random suicidal guy . The suicidal mentions ... "Throw me in the box with the O2 off ... and dn call a cop" , show his depression . Yk , the line "I'm using white lighters to see" .. shows that he sees life from a sort of gloomy perspective , and he doesn't give a fuck about dying ...

    I personally think that is about how he lost his innocence and his child hood because of many things I don’t think he’s wanting to kill his self I just think he is showing what it was like for him when a could slow feel his child hood fading away and he also took great detail into looking like Kurt Cobain and he was apart of the 27s club just saying but he’s asking them to play this song at his funeral and for his sister to not cry because he’s with his dad abs he’s happy

    in my pov this person is very suicidal and ready to give up. theyre going to end it and giving a message to everyone that the cruel world drove them there. there are many suicidal mentions and things that just show that they dont care if they die anymore.

    My interpretation of this song is that the person who wrote it was full of anxiety and pain and with the song he tries to send that message to the world, in the part of "Throw me in a box with the oxygen off
    You gave me the key and then you closed every lock
    When I can't breathe, I won't ask you to stop
    When I can't breathe, don't call a cop
    I was naive and hopeful and lost
    Now I'm conscious and trapped in my thoughts "I feel like it's a way of saying that I can't continue or at least that's how I interpret that part, this is a really good song and the most important thing is one of those songs that doesn't matter how many times I hear it, I will always like it

    I think it is about a man who is driven by the cruelty of the world and struggles of growing up into his own suicidal thoughts.

    In my opinion the song is about being depressed and suicidal because of family issues which made the kid in him die and he became someone else.

    A kid talking about the fact they might die soon and acknowledging the fact death is inevitable.. :D

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
