Dumpster Baby
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everything hanging on a string, diamond earrings
I can't even blink, I am at your door, let me in
For you, I cut my wings, throw the phone, cut the SIM
I'ma cut the oxygen, evil smoke rolling in
Delete my number baby, leave me like a dumpster baby
Treat me like trash cause that's all I am
I'll be your doll, play with me
Leave me in a box, forget me
You dress me up, but you don't pick me up

When I wake up I think about you
When I go to sleep, when I brush my teeth
I can't even breathe, can't even move
I can't even see, I can't even speak

I can't even breathe, I can't even see, I can't even speak

Everything hanging on a string, diamond earrings
I can't even blink, I am at your door, let me in
For you, I cut my wings, throw the phone, cut the sim
I'ma cut the oxygen, evil smoke rolling in
Delete my number baby, leave me like a dumpster baby
Treat me like trash cause that's all I am
I'll be your doll, play with me




Leave me in a box, forget me
You dress me up, but you don't pick me up

Overall Meaning

Bladee's song Dumpster Baby is a plea for love and acceptance, even if it means being treated like trash. The lyrics express the depth of longing and desperation, as the singer seems willing to do anything for love or attention. The first verse features a manic description of the singer hanging everything on a string, even diamond earrings, expressing his willingness to give up all his material possessions for the object of his love. He even says that he cut his wings and will cut the oxygen to himself, implying that he would rather die than be without the person he loves. Unfortunately, he realizes that he is nothing but trash in their eyes, and willing to leave him like a "dumpster baby."


The second verse only intensifies the feelings of the singer. His entire life is consumed with thoughts of the person he loves, and he can't even function properly without thinking of them. He is consumed with thoughts of another person to the point where he can't even breathe, move or speak. The chorus repeats with the same desperate longing and acceptance of being treated like trash even though he is willing to be a doll and forgotten in a box. The song clearly highlights the misguided nature of love and the desperate lengths to which we can go to obtain it.
