Birdbath
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's just another day in the crazy world
Never take a win if you don't take a failure
Needles and pins in my skin, I'mma let it hurt
Trash star, had to find how to make it worse
Post up in a veil for my sin, ask forgiveness first
And it hurts my soul when I have to put business first
It hurts my soul
Rock-star lifestyle, make my kidneys hurt
Night time, lifestyle, it's so linear
And I'm living so fast, you can't keep up
Drain Gang hotel, or the beach club
You shouldn't go in, you can't go back
When I let my faith out just to throw it back
Drain Gang, weaklings, it will collapse
Taking on weakness, that's the real trap
And we on that lizard shit, yeah we'll grow back
And we drinking Listerine with the birch sap
And we ain't closed till the end, then it's purge time
You can't swim, gotta fly in the birdbath

It's just another day in the crazy world
Never take a win if you don't take a failure
Needles and pins in my skin, I'mma let it hurt
Trash star, had to find how to make it worse
Post up in a veil for my sin, ask forgiveness first




And it hurts my soul when I have to put business first
It hurts my soul

I listened to this on Spotify and thought “how could I not have heard this?”
Come to Youtube to see what the community thinks of the song cuz I love it and sure enough I had already viewed this video! Sometimes listening on a different day is all it takes, I wonder why it’s so volatile like that?
