Bleeding from my Prada shoes like they raw
I always been real with you, from the start
Tryna hold it in my hand but it falls apart
Yeah, it falls apart, tearing us apart
I′m just tryna play the game but it's joker cards
I′m just drinking Ace of Spades like it's no tomorrow
Coach put me in the game and I'm going hard
I′ma strike the ball, going to the stars

Home run, yeah, I go like 600 yards
They want give me a red card when I hit the mall
Fendi scarf around my arms, bleeding from my palms
Drain show in a black car with ′bout 20 guards
There's a voice in the night, I can hear it call
Night call, you know I pick up, wanna hear you whisper
I know ′bout the water but the blood coming thicker
In your dream, its a scripture, I take it like a picture
Find out what you on and parasite you
I see light blue but sometimes it's pink too
I can be your fog you′ll be my queen like it's England
I′m just tryna kick it, trust me like religion
Find out what's your shape and then I'm shifting
Toxic waste, I′m glitching, trapped in my own prison
I can′t live without you like nutrition
Catch you when I'm blinking, want you like I′m Jason
Four, five rings on like a mason
Feeling like I'm Jordan, three point, yeah, I′m scoring
I might get it late or in the morning
Hit you with a forehand, I been laying dormant

Beat the evil like a hole-in-one
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden one
Beat the evil like a hole-in-one
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden one
Beat the evil like a hole-in-one
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden boy
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden boy
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden boy
You make me feel like the golden one
You make me feel like the golden boy
You make me feel like the golden one




You make me feel like the golden boy
You make me feel like the golden one

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee's "Golden Boy" express the artist's feelings of alienation, disillusionment, and emptiness despite his material success. The opening line "Bleeding from my Prada shoes like they raw" sets the tone for the rest of the song as Bladee expresses his discomfort with his current lifestyle. The reference to Prada shoes highlights the material wealth that he possesses but the fact that they are causing him pain suggests that his success has come at a cost.


Bladee then goes on to talk about how he has always been real and honest with his audience from the start, but despite his efforts, things seem to be falling apart. He uses the metaphor of trying to hold something in his hand but it falls apart to express his helplessness and inability to control the situation. The reference to "joker cards" highlights the unpredictable nature of his life in the music industry.


Ultimately, Bladee seeks solace in the love and affection of another person. He talks about hearing a voice in the night and wanting to hear someone whisper. He is aware that there are negative aspects to this relationship, represented by the lines "I know 'bout the water but the blood coming thicker", but he is still drawn to it. The repeated refrain "You make me feel like the golden one" suggests that the other person is able to provide him with the validation and sense of worth that he has been seeking.
