Noblest Strive
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Turn your mental prison to a maze
Turn the maze into a place where you′re safe
We're not stepping on the graves even
Everything will wither and decay
But the energy will stay
Everyday or delay, every second even
Turn away for nothing just in case
A sensation but it′s strange
In the way everything is a secret even-
Call myself a vessel, not a name
Call a taxi in the rain
Take a plane out of space to confess, I need it

Endlessly reflecting in your gaze
With the mirror and it breaks
Seven years, seven tears, seven different heavens
Blue and black I change another shade
And I'm trapped and in the grey
Change the rainbow in my brain, it's a ray of colour
In the secret world with no mistakes
Just to find out what it takes
To be crazed, separate, differentiate it
You hold on to me, the part that stays
Makes me crawling in the wave, fly away
But today I′ll go up, I know it

I swear, all my sympathy′s away
Break my card, will be a ace
But my palm won't move a face
I can′t stand to watch it
Everything is perfect, can't avoid
I don′t want it to be spoiled
I avoid it for so long, but I can't forever
(But I can′t forever)

Endlessly reflecting in your gaze
With the mirror and it breaks
Seven years, seven tears, seven different heavens
Blue and black I change another shade
And I'm trapped and in the grey
Change the rainbow in my brain, it's a ray of colours
In the secret world with no mistakes
Just to find out what it takes
To be crazed, separate, differentiate it
You hold on to me, the part that stays




Makes me crawling in the wave, fly away
But today I′ll go up, I know it

Overall Meaning

Bladee's song "Noblest Strive" talks about turning one's mental prison into a maze and then turning that maze into a safe space. The lyrics speak about the impermanence of everything but the energy that remains, even when everything else will wither and decay. The use of metaphor in the lyrics is intense, from the seven tears, seven different heavens to the changing rainbow in the brain to the use of the words "crawling in the wave" and "fly away," which could imply a yearning for escapism from the struggles of daily life.


The lyrics also explore the idea of secrecy, expressed in the lines "everything is a secret even" and "in the secret world with no mistakes." Bladee calls himself a "vessel, not a name," suggesting that he is transcending himself to explore these themes. The song presents a sense of confusion, disorientation, and wanting to escape from the struggles of life. However, in the end, the song offers hope as Bladee asserts that "today I'll go up," indicating a desire to rise above these struggles and to find an inner peace.


Line by Line Meaning

Turn your mental prison to a maze
Transform your internal struggles into something more complex and meaningful


Turn the maze into a place where you're safe
Find security within the intricacies of your own mind


We're not stepping on the graves even
We do not wish to harm or disrespect the deceased


Everything will wither and decay
All things must eventually come to an end


But the energy will stay
Despite material things fading away, the essence of them remains


Everyday or delay, every second even
Time continues to move forward no matter what we do


Turn away for nothing just in case
Be aware of potential dangers and do not ignore them


A sensation but it's strange
An experience that is unfamiliar and unusual


In the way everything is a secret even-
Despite appearances, the truth may not always be apparent


Call myself a vessel, not a name
Identify as a conduit for something larger than oneself, rather than just an individual


Call a taxi in the rain
Make a desperate attempt to get away from something, even in difficult circumstances


Take a plane out of space to confess, I need it
Go to great lengths to seek forgiveness or absolution of guilt


Endlessly reflecting in your gaze
Continuously seeing oneself reflected in another's eyes


With the mirror and it breaks
The reflection that one sees is shattered


Seven years, seven tears, seven different heavens
A significant amount of time and emotion has been invested in various things


Blue and black I change another shade
Continuously shifting and evolving in personality and emotions


And I'm trapped and in the grey
Feeling stuck in a state of confusion and lack of direction


Change the rainbow in my brain, it's a ray of colour
Alter one's perception and understanding of things to bring vibrancy and brightness to life


In the secret world with no mistakes
A hidden realm where one's actions and decisions cannot be scrutinized or judged


Just to find out what it takes
Continue searching for the answer or solution to something


To be crazed, separate, differentiate it
To become obsessed, disconnect from others, and distinguish oneself


You hold on to me, the part that stays
Someone is clinging to a lasting aspect of oneself


Makes me crawling in the wave, fly away
Feeling both trapped and liberated by a difficult situation


But today I'll go up, I know it
Today, things will begin to improve


I swear, all my sympathy's away
No longer feeling compassionate or empathetic towards others


Break my card, will be an ace
Taking risks and gambling in order to succeed


But my palm won't move a face
Feeling stuck or paralyzed in a difficult situation


I can't stand to watch it
Unable to tolerate or witness something unpleasant


Everything is perfect, can't avoid
Despite all the flaws and imperfections, everything seems ideal


I don't want it to be spoiled
Wishing to preserve the current state of things


I avoid it for so long, but I can't forever
Avoiding something for a significant amount of time, but realizing it cannot be avoided indefinitely

Turn your mental prison into a maze
Turn the maze into a place where you're safe
Right now stepping on the graves even
Everything will wither and decay
But the energy will stay
Everyday, early, late, every second even
Turn away for nothing, just in case
A sensation but it's strange
In a way everything is a secret even
Call myself a vessel, not a name
Call a taxi in the rain
Take a plane out of space to confess, I need it
Endlessly reflecting in your gaze
Drop the mirror and it breaks
Seven years, seven tears, seven different heavens
Blue and black, I chase another shade
And I'm transcending the grey
To the rainbow in my brain, this array of color
Endlessly go over my mistakes
Just to find out what it takes
To be great, separate, differentiating
You hold on to me, the part that stays
Makes me grounded in a way, fly away
But today I'll go up, I know it
I throw all my sympathyies away
Pray my card will be a ace
Put my palm over a face
I can't stand to watch it
Everything is perfect in the void
I don't want it to be spoiled
I avoid it for so long, but I can't forever
Endlessly reflecting in your gaze
Drop the mirror and it breaks
Seven years, seven tears, seven different heavens
Blue and black, I chase another shade
And I'm transcending the grey
To the rainbow in my brain, this array of color
Endlessly go over my mistakes
Just to find out what it takes
To be great, separate, differentiating
You hold on to me, the part that stays
Makes me grounded in a way, fly away
But today I'll go up, I know it

I’m sorry but I just don’t get how people can sleep on Bladees lyrics anymore... this shit is pure art, like a wave of existential angst set against a field of flowers

@harshh9000

I’m in bliss

@1shyy524

I don't think bladee wrote this alone though

@bluesquiddemon

I think it because the production melds his vocals and the beat so much that people don't really pay attention to it. his music is just as beautiful to me if I pay attention to the lyrics or not though

@jays4210

Fr he's a legit songwriter
