MERRY-GO-ROUND
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

(Three star)
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go
Go around
Merry-go-round
It's all in my head, got imaginary friends
I'm stuck in a trance
I can only dance
Castles made of cards and I watch it go down

Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (in the)
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (in the)
Merry-go-round

Time will stand still
Wish you dance, doing ballet
I come in, open up and I fall in
It's like silk, in the wind, flowers swaying
In the rain, in perfect union
It's like love, it's just like in a fairy tale
Not enough, it's just not true enough
Catch a breath, I can't even breathe, baby
Feels so fresh, just one and only one

Go around, go
Merry-go-round
It's all in my head, got imaginary friends
I'm stuck in a trance
I can only dance
Castles made of cards and I watch it go down

Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (merry-go-round)
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (merry-go-round)
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (merry-go-round)
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (merry-go-round)

Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round
Merry-go-round (go, go)
Merry-go-round (go, go)
Merry-go-round (go, go)




Merry-go-round
(Go, go, go)

Overall Meaning

In Bladee's song "MERRY-GO-ROUND," the recurring motif of the merry-go-round is used as a metaphor for the cyclical and repetitive nature of life and the artist's own mental state. The lyrics "Go, go, go, go" repeated at the beginning of the song can be interpreted as a command to keep moving forward, to keep pushing through the ups and downs of existence. The merry-go-round itself symbolizes a sense of motion and constant change, yet also a feeling of being stuck in a loop.


The mention of imaginary friends and being stuck in a trance suggests a sense of isolation and disconnection from reality. The singer feels confined within their own mind, surrounded by illusions and fragile constructs like castles made of cards. The line "I can only dance" implies a sense of resignation or surrender to the whims of fate, as if the singer is simply going through the motions without any real agency.


The imagery of dancing, ballet, silk, and flowers swaying creates a dreamlike atmosphere, highlighting a yearning for beauty and grace amidst the chaos. The reference to love and fairy tales juxtaposed with the acknowledgement that it may not be enough or even true enough speaks to a sense of disillusionment or dissatisfaction with idealized notions of romance and happiness. The struggle to catch a breath and feeling overwhelmed by the weight of existence adds a layer of vulnerability and raw emotion to the narrative.


Overall, "MERRY-GO-ROUND" captures the complexity of human experience, from the fleeting moments of bliss to the pervasive feelings of uncertainty and melancholy. The repetition of the merry-go-round motif reinforces the idea of life as a continuous cycle, where one must navigate the highs and lows with resilience and acceptance. Through introspective and evocative lyrics, Bladee invites listeners to reflect on the ephemeral nature of reality and the enduring search for meaning in a world that often feels like a dizzying merry-go-round.
