I though of the idea of this song when I was in history/geography. Something about older people and that they were taking up heaps of houses that younger and selfish people want.
This song is about a youth who didn't respect their elders and was a total douche. Then they got older, and didn't want to die, but they got their own medicine and young people wanted to get rid of them. Like a whole cycle.
So, yeah. Don't be a douche about old people, just think, when you're old you wouldn't want people seeing you as a burden to get rid of either. I love old people!

Did that make any sense? Haha.

You were once a budding rose;

Red and lush, with eyes so bright;

Thorns at the ready, ready for a fight;

You stuck to your bush and… smi-iled;

 

Well now your older, but not much bolder;

You lost you lustre over the bends and bumps;

Red turned to black, like your coal heart;

Withering away over ti-ime;

 

So now you’re just a dying rose;

Clinging to the bush, you just won’t go;

You are just a dying rose;

Lost and hurt, now that you’re old;

 

And so;

Over time;

I hope you re-a-lise;

That so far, so far, you haven’t done much good;

Kicked everyone out, now it’s your turn;

 

But you just won’t accept your death;

Holding on to your last breath;

You won’t stand to fade away;

Want a big exit?

Well, it’s too late.

 

You. You know;

Everyone gets old, older;

Yes, we all do;

Now it’s time for you!

 

You’re just a freaking dying rose!

Clinging to the bush, you just won’t go;

You’re just a effing dying rose!

Freaking grow up, now that you’re old!

 

Everybody dies…!

Everybody loses their light…!

Everybody dies…!

But you seem content living a lie.

 

So, please!

 

You cling, you grasp;

At the life you no longer have!

You. You’re trying in vain;

To clutch on, but you’re going insane!

 

Oh!

 

You’re just a freaking dying rose!

Clinging to the bush, you just won’t go;

You’re just an effing dying rose!

Freaking grow up, now that you’re old!

 

Oh, no one minds;

About your demise;

You, never had much friends;

Cause you were a douche even until the end;

 

Oh!

 

You’re just a freaking dying rose!

Clinging to the bush, you just won’t go;

You’re just an effing dying rose!

Freaking grow up, now that you’re old!

 

You’re dying, you’re dying, you’re dying, fool!

Think you’re gonna bloom;

But you’re just getting ready for your to-omb!

Oh!

 

Die, die, die!

Why do you lie?

To yourself, your just getting older;

Lost your petals long ago;

You’re stained with death, but you just won’t go.

Just leave!

Please!

Someone else has gotta take you place!

Please!

Just leave!

You’re taking up all the space…!

You’re just a freaking dying rose!

Clinging to the bush, you just won’t go;

You’re just an effing dying rose!

Freaking grow up, now that you’re old!

 

Dying, dying.

Wither away.

Die, die, die…

You’re just a dying… r-o-s-e!
