Insect

Drain Gang

Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect
Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect
Flowers in winter
Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect
Flowers in winter
The smell of Windex
Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect
Flowers in winter
The smell of Windex

The night I am, I got it quite bad
I made your swag, like I'm your dad
The light I have, I turn it all black
I can't go back, like MJ, it's bad
The drain it's mad, it feels like a stab
I smoke the grams like it's nothing
The ground I stand it turns into sand
I fall again, I'm stuck in the jam

Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect
Flowers in winter
The smell of Windex
Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect
Flowers in winter
The smell of Windex

The night I am, I got it quite bad
I made your swag like I'm your dad
The light I have, I turn it all black
I can't go back, like MJ, it's bad
The drain it's mad, it feels like a stab
I smoke the grams like it's nothing
The ground I stand it turns into sand
I fall again, I'm stuck in the jam

And I'm still holding on
But I can't wait forever
Drain Gang

Life I lost interest
Now I'm an insect




Flowers in winter
The smell of Windex

Overall Meaning

Bladee’s song “Insect” talks about the loss of vitality and enthusiasm in life, creating an existence that is dull, repetitive, and empty. The first line “Life I lost interest, Now I'm an insect” sets the tone of the entire song. The metaphor of turning into an insect could be interpreted in various ways. On one hand, insects live their life cycle repeatedly with no real purpose or meaning. On the other hand, insects are seen as lesser beings in society, insignificant, and easily disposable. The next line mentions “Flowers in Winter”, which also contributes to the overall theme of stagnancy, as flowers typically bloom and grow during spring and summer.


Bladee then says “The smell of Windex” which can be seen as a reference to cleaning or erasing something, almost like the feeling of wanting to start anew or wipe the slate clean. The following lines “The night I am, I got it quite bad, I made your swag, like I'm your dad” suggests a sense of insecurity and inferiority. The “light” mentioned represents self-confidence and positivity, which Bladee erases entirely, symbolizing his descent into a state of desolation.


Throughout the song, Bladee repeats himself, emphasizing his repetition of the daily grind and how it has worn him down. The mention of “Drain Gang” at the end of the song could indicate a sense of unity or camaraderie with the group he is associated with, even in the face of the difficulties of life.


Line by Line Meaning

Life I lost interest
I'm no longer interested in life


Now I'm an insect
I feel small and insignificant, like an insect


Flowers in winter
Out of place, like flowers in winter


The smell of Windex
Something unpleasant and chemical


The night I am, I got it quite bad
I'm struggling, feeling low


I made your swag, like I'm your dad
I influenced your style and attitude, like a father figure


The light I have, I turn it all black
My positive outlook turned negative


I can't go back, like MJ, it's bad
I can't turn back time, like Michael Jackson's controversies


The drain it's mad, it feels like a stab
My problems feel overwhelming and painful


I smoke the grams like it's nothing
I consume drugs to numb the pain


The ground I stand it turns into sand
I feel unstable and insecure


I fall again, I'm stuck in the jam
I keep failing, unable to progress


And I'm still holding on
I haven't given up yet


But I can't wait forever
I know I need to change or things won't improve
