"Dead Flower" is the fourth track on Melanie's fourth studio album, Gummies

Theme

This song is about what Cry Baby was plotting during Chalkboard. As it turns out, she was plotting to kill Sophia's father by trapping him in a hole he couldn't climb out of and he eventually dies of thirst after not having anything to drink for too long.

Lyrics

You were a flower



A pretty one at that



But you smelled like a dead body



Well, now you are one, too



I was so caught up



In the sights and sounds



Of the trees rustling in the breeze



But when I managed to look past your pretty face



I managed to see you were the bane of the human race



You were nothing but a pretty purple corpse flower



Now you're a dead flower, dead flower



There are plenty of other fish in the sea



Other flowers in the garden staring at me



I happen to have quite a green thumb



I pity anyone who saw the good in you



Oh wait, that was me



I was so caught up



In the sights and sounds



Of the trees rustling in the breeze



But when I managed to look past your pretty face



I managed to see you were the bane of the human race



You were nothing but a pretty purple corpse flower



Now you're a dead flower, dead flower



Oh, but when I managed to look past your pretty face



I managed to see you were the bane of the human race



You were nothing but a pretty purple corpse flower



Now you're a dead flower, dead flower



'Cause when flowers don't get water, they die


Trivia

  • The "dead body" lyric is possibly a reference to Band Aid.
