Penelope Scott Song Meanings - Dead Girls

11 months ago 173 Interpretation:

  • It's about suicide particularly young girls but also with some other elements like romanticizing death. It's from a perspective of a girl who reads about all the other young girls who die too young and thinks about them and misses them despite her not even knowing them. She sympathizes them but she also feels guilty as she is trying to forget a girl committed suicide and this is her seeing the girl. It's like how society does in real life. 
  • It could be also about starting to struggle with your mental health, and not wanting to accept it yet, but suddenly being acutely aware of all the unliving going on around you and the fact that people are like that makes you feel like the only way to get attention is to unalive yourself.
