FLEXING & FINESSING
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Let me tell you a little story about this guy that's not important (I'm working on dying)
Let me tell you about these crazy clothes he's sportin'
Let me tell you about these Cold Visions I've been havin'
Cold Visions, man, let's fuckin' go

Excel in everything, I ain't talkin' about an Excel sheet
It's bad she's bad
The vibes are bad every time that we meet
I cut my hand like Jesus did I bleed, I bleed, I bleed
I'm up so late
I'm violently drug abusin' weed
I still remember the first time I realized that nothing's fine
I'm still rememberin' the rise since then it's been a big decline
How could these cowards take my kindness for a weakness?
Thank God for every blessin'
I'm gettin' bored of all this stressin'
Back to flexin' and finessin'
Hangin' with peasants gets depressin' I'm reppin' Crest (Crest, Crest)
The mental weak
I know it's not a competition but shit, I'm winnin', winnin', winnin'
It's all I know
I know I'm fallin' off but shit, I can't let go
I wipe my nose, it's all I know
Stumblin' through the door and stumblin' down
(There's somethin' hidden in this riddle)
Between the lines, no, I'm just kiddin'
There's somethin' cold about my vision
My fortune paints an ugly picture
If I should trust my intuition
I probably could do it different
To catch my drift I'm goin' fishin'
On my way back from goin' missin' (listen)
Should do the dishes in the kitchen (I'm back, ha)
But I am lackin' the ambition
I let the neon diamonds glisten (diamonds, diamonds)
I'm speakin' codes so, baby, listen
This damn depression is my prison
Pink Floyd, the diamond is a prism (prism)
Your threat towards us is nonexistent
I'm in the hills, I'm pissin' wishes
I give you everything, just listen
SG malicious (malicious business)
I got a funny disposition
Bust down the cross but I'm not Christian
I'm talkin' shit
Cold Visions, is it?
Is it Cold Visions?
If you get hit then you get hit then
I'm bein' rude like a Parisian
I keep it true like I got 'tism
I'm in the sewers on a mission
Somethin' was true in my suspicions
There's somethin' brewing in the distance
Without gettin' into specifics
Let's address a couple issues
I'm fresh to death, I'm dressin' different
I'm truly sculpted in His image
Try catch these things from my perspective
Without gettin' into specifics
My hoodie on, I look suspicious
Your hidden talents, keep it hidden
Don't wanna see you be a victim
Don't wanna wake up and remember (ha)
The visions colder than December
DG the core we in the center (hahaha)
The blade be spinnin' like a blender (Bladee)
It's habit formin', I'm dependent
No stainless steel in this here pendant
Tell them stop stealin' my agenda
I'm pushin' Drain Gang propaganda
High in the hills like I'm a Jenner
I'm him, did you assume my gender?
I'm HD clean, you need to render
The accountant told me stop the spendin'
I'm spendin' like the world is endin'

Let me tell you a little story about somethin' unimportant
Let me tell you about this shit I've been importin'
Truly gifted
Let me tell you about this ice that I've been sportin'
Let me- let me tell you about these crazy clothes he's sportin'




Let me tell you about these cold visions I've been havin'
(Cold Visions)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee's "FLEXING & FINESSING" delve into themes of materialism, mental struggles, self-reflection, and resilience. The opening lines set the stage by introducing a character who is portrayed as not significant, yet they wear extravagant clothing and inspire "Cold Visions." This can be interpreted as a metaphor for the superficiality and allure of material possessions that can lead to deeper contemplation and introspection.


The next set of lyrics touches upon the pressure to excel in various aspects of life, beyond just material wealth. The mention of bleeding like Jesus and struggling with drug abuse alludes to a deeper sense of pain and self-destruction amidst societal expectations of success. There's a contrast between the facade of success and the internal turmoil faced by the singer, emphasizing the disconnect between outward appearances and internal struggles.


As the song progresses, there is a sense of disillusionment and bitterness towards those who misinterpret kindness as weakness. The singer expresses gratitude for blessings but also acknowledges the overwhelming stress they face. The reference to flexing and finessing can be viewed as a coping mechanism or a way to mask insecurities and inner turmoil through materialistic displays.


The repeated references to cold visions and a sense of foreboding suggest a feeling of being haunted by uncertainties and dark thoughts. The singer grapples with depression and a lack of motivation, symbolized by the imagery of neon diamonds and sinister prison metaphors. Despite this, there is a defiant tone of standing true to oneself and one's unique perspective, even amidst societal pressures and mental health struggles.


Overall, "FLEXING & FINESSING" can be interpreted as a complex exploration of identity, struggles with mental health, and the masks we wear in a world obsessed with appearances and success. The lyrics offer a raw and introspective look into the internal battles faced by the singer, encouraging listeners to confront their own vulnerabilities and complexities within a society that often values superficiality over authenticity.
