Missing Person
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

Missing person, I'm a missing person
I'm gone, that's for certain
If they love me, I might hurt them
So I stay behind the curtains
Missing person, I'm a missing person
I'm gone, that's for certain
You won't find me, stop the searching
I stay lowkey when I'm lurking

I quit life, wasn't working
The whole world full of serpents
If you cross me, then you're cursed man
Cut your face off like a surgeon
Off the grid, gone off detergents
I can't be seen, it's disturbing
I don't go out cause I'm nervous
I won't come back to this world man
I wanna know what love is
I wanna know what it feels like
Wanted to see you in that light
Now I'm too deep in the night
I'm just ash now, I been burning
When it's rain out, then I'm surfing
Know it's late now, but I'm learning
Everything calm on the surface

Missing person, I'm a missing person
I'm gone, that's for certain
If they love me, I might hurt them
So I stay behind the curtains
Missing person, I'm a missing person
I'm gone, that's for certain
You won't find me stop the searching
I stay lowkey when I'm lurking





I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone...

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Bladee's song "Missing Person" explore the idea of being disconnected from the world, intentionally isolating oneself from others, and grappling with difficult emotions. From the opening lines, "I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone," Bladee establishes a sense of distance, detachment, and absence. He later repeats the phrase "missing person" emphatically, emphasizing the sense of being lost or unaccounted for.


The reasons for this self-imposed isolation seem to be twofold. Firstly, as Bladee suggests, being around others can be a source of pain or discomfort, leading to the possibility of hurting those we care about. Secondly, the world itself can be a challenging and threatening place, full of "serpents" and curses. For Bladee, the best way to cope with these difficulties is to withdraw from society, to stay "behind the curtains" and "off the grid."


Despite acknowledging the drawbacks of isolation, Bladee struggles with the emotional longing for connection, expressed through lines like "I wanna know what love is / I wanna know what it feels like / Wanted to see you in that light / Now I'm too deep in the night." This sense of regret and yearning is compounded by Bladee's fatalistic tone, with lines like "I won't come back to this world man" implying a sense of finality or inevitability.


Overall, "Missing Person" is a powerful meditation on the challenges of navigating the modern world, balancing the desire for connection with the need for self-preservation and the realities of living in a world that can often be hostile or overwhelming.
