1D
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Still in the night, I should be knighted
You pay the member fee, but you′re still not invited
I get the feeling that you're brain dead
They said I should′ve stayed dead, but the spotlight, I crave it
You only like me cause I'm famous
Turn up to the drainers, wake up all your neighbors
Had this sickness since the cradle
OG got me lazy, in traffic with Cady

Reach in the well for a necklace
Blood on the moon, it's crescent
DG the new One Direction (One Direction)
10k, I count my blessings
Reach for the stars, am I destined? (Destined)
Turn a note into ash for the dragon (dragon)
Bleed on the block for my brethren
Trash Star shining bright in dog heaven

Late in the fall like I′m a dead leaf
I lost my memory, but it came back and drenched me
I have a feeling that I′m crazy (crazy)
I know that they hate me, but they wanna be me
I roll up kushy in a dead leaf (dead leaf)
Chilling at the dead sea, it's just me and Lusi
I might pass out in the back seat
Back seat of a taxi, drop me on a backstreet

Love, the end is near (hold on)
I can take us there (somewhere)
I can drop it all (something)
Just to see it fall (go on)

Reach in the well for a necklace
Blood on the moon, it′s crescent
DG the new One Direction (One Direction)
10k, I count my blessings
Reach for the stars, am I destined? (Destined)
Turn a note into ash for the dragon (dragon)
Bleed on the block for my brethren
Trash Star shining bright in dog heaven

Reach in the well for a necklace
Blood on the moon, it's crescent
DG the new One Direction (One Direction)
10k, I count my blessings
Reach for the stars, am I destined? (Destined)
Turn a note into ash for the dragon (dragon)




Bleed on the block for my brethren
Trash Star shining bright in dog heaven

Overall Meaning

In "1D" by Bladee, the lyrics depict a sense of longing for validation and recognition in a world that can feel isolating and judgmental. The opening lines, "Still in the night, I should be knighted / You pay the member fee, but you’re still not invited," suggest a desire for acceptance and belonging despite being overlooked or excluded. The singer believes they should be recognized and celebrated, craving the spotlight and fame.


The lyrics also touch upon the notion of superficial admiration, with the line "You only like me cause I’m famous." It reflects the understanding that some people may be drawn to the singer solely because of their fame rather than genuinely connecting with their true self. This can create a sense of loneliness and disconnect.


Throughout the song, Bladee reflects on his own journey and struggles. Lines like "Late in the fall like I’m a dead leaf / I lost my memory, but it came back and drenched me" suggest a feeling of being lost, disconnected, and potentially dealing with mental health issues. Despite these challenges, there is a sense of resilience and determination, as expressed in the lines "Turn a note into ash for the dragon / Bleed on the block for my brethren."


Overall, "1D" explores themes of longing for recognition, the dichotomy of fame, and personal struggles with mental health and self-identity.
