All I Want
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

How many times do I have to have the same lesson before I can change?
For real (haha)
I feel so strange
I feel so strange

I feel so strange
So many times I tried to change but I'm stuck in my ways (stuck)
Uh, uh, uh (uh), uh, my body shakes
I would tell you the reason but I can't say (no)
Can't go on like this forever
I swear I can't go on like this forever
I can't go on like this forever
I swear I can't go on like this forever
Change the tide, I'm just happy to be alive
Visualize your change and then go to that place
And just be in that place, and just stay in that place
And just be in that place, and just stay in that place
Back again, back and it's worse than ever
The years go by, the years go by and so do I
The story's great, I know of a beautiful ending
It's the way I want, I want it that way
Super glue me, but it won't stick
There's no happy endings without you and me
First I'm running, then I sink
Then I sit down by myself, and I just think (and I just think)

I can't complain
I am the master of my fate and I'm having my way
Uh, uh, uh, uh, I have myself to blame
But I'm not blaming anyone, oh I want it that way
I want it that way, I want it that way (it's all up to you, man)
I want it that way, I want it that way (what you want to be like, is this the one?)




I want it that way, I want it that way (yes, yes)
I do want it that way

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee;Mechatok's song "All I Want" express a sentiment of feeling stuck in one's ways, of wanting to change but finding it difficult to do so. The repetition of "I can't go on like this forever" emphasizes the urgency of the desire for change, while the references to the body shaking and the inability to explain the reason behind it suggest that this desire is tied to a deeper emotional turmoil. Despite this, the chorus asserts a sense of agency: "I am the master of my fate and I'm having my way." The singer acknowledges their responsibility for their own situation, but also affirms their own power to shape their future. The repeating phrase "I want it that way" feels like a mantra, an assertion of the singer's determination to create the kind of life they want for themselves.


On a musical level, "All I Want" is built around a hypnotic, droning keyboard riff, which contributes to the sense of being stuck in one place. The sparse percussion and atmospheric synths create a dreamlike atmosphere that supports the introspective lyrics. Bladee's vocal delivery is characterized by a flat affect and an almost robotic tone, which lends a surreal quality to the track. The overall effect is of a song that captures the feeling of being trapped within oneself.


Overall, "All I Want" is a compelling exploration of the struggle to change oneself, with a hypnotic musical backdrop that emphasizes the feeling of being stuck. The lyrics are introspective and thoughtful, and the repetition of key phrases helps to reinforce the song's compelling message.

Hook]
Baby, you're all that I want
But you don't see me at all, and I fall
It gets so dark, it gets hard, but I'll walk
I'll walk a mile in your shoes, on my heart
Give me your scar, leave me scarred with your mark
Leave me for life and I'll leave you my all
Write on my wall, on the floor, in my hall
Do it for you, I'd spill blood on my star

[Chorus]
Blood
I'd spill blood
Blood
I'd spill blood
Blood
I'd spill blood
Blood

[Verse]
I love it, I love it
You're beautiful, I'm ugly
I want it, I want it
You got it, you got it
I'm honest, you're modest
I call it how I see it
I need it, I need it
But I know I'm not needed
I'm off it, I'm fiending
Drain gang, I'm always bleeding
You see it, you see it
I try to be nice, I'm evil
You leave me, deceive me
I bleed the stars, I'm bleeding
I wish you knew the meaning
I can't wake up, I'm dreaming about you
