Puppet Master
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I wanted to be real, wanted to be real

I′m the winner but I feel like a victim
Graduated from the situation, found a solution
Smoking on the pollution, all black suit
Black gloves on, just like a hitman
Trash Star Boys and we sleep in a coffin
Wake up, drinking coffee
I get to it often, might get to it this morning
Prada boots on, look like some Jordans
I'm playing, I′m scoring
DG, Nike, they supporting
Just do it, blade on me, I'm swording
I'm veiled when I′m wielding
Knife in my heart but, man, fuck how I′m feeling
Can't look at me, you′re dreaming
Can't even see me when you are sleeping
Black Volvo, we′re creeping

I had ups and downs but it's falling into place
Like the love from God when you look me in my face
I had dreams of life that were lost in empty space
I had almost drowned if I didn′t fuck with that drain
I had four, five strikes, at the sixth I lost my wings
I'm the puppeteer, put my puppets into play





Wanted to be real, wanted to be real
Wanted to be real

Overall Meaning

The lyrics in Bladee's song Puppet Master express the rapper's desires to be authentic and genuine. Despite his perceived success – "I'm the winner" – he feels like a victim, possibly of his own making. The line "graduated from the situation" suggests that he has overcome some adversity, but whether his success is due to hard work or something else is left unclear. Smoking on pollution may indicate a disregard for his health or the environment, but the all-black suit and gloves suggest some level of professionalism or seriousness. He associates himself with a hitman, furthering the impression of a dangerous or powerful figure.


Bladee's Trash Star Boys sleep in a coffin, an eerie and unconventional visual that contrasts with the mundane act of drinking coffee. The line "I get to it often, might get to it this morning" speaks to the rapper's work ethic and the possibility that his success is due to his persistence and consistency. He wears Prada boots that resemble Jordans, showing his attention to fashion and style. He references brands like DG and Nike, indicating their support of him. The line "just do it" implies a Nike endorsement that he uses to "sword" with the blade emblem on his clothing. He says he is "veil-ed" when he wields his knife, suggesting he may be hiding his true intentions from others. Even with a knife in his heart, he dismisses his emotions and tells himself "man, fuck how I'm feeling". He claims his presence is so elusive that people can't even see him in their dreams.


The chorus repeats the line "wanted to be real" thrice, emphasizing the rapper's desire to be authentic. He recounts his struggles and how they've led him to where he is now. He compares himself to a "puppeteer" who controls his own destiny and those around him. Through it all, he continues to strive for authenticity and realness.
