Reality Surf
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Tree so ripe, we got fruit
We got crowns, salute it (yeah, it's real)
Put a concept on that feeling
Take a word and change the meaning
Only you, deck the halls, open the ceiling
On Hawaii island, reality surf
Reality surf, reality surf, reality surf, oh
Venom in the vile
Enemies closer than you
Trick them into buying
Snakes slither in the spine, take the fruit
Still a dirty city throwing cards (yeah)
Everything related back to you (back to you)
I have never been the one to talk
Cinderella, Cinderella, wear it if it suits
Build it just to watch it fall apart
Looking for the arrow when you shoot
You take yourself seriously, just stop
Listen to your heart
Mirror, mirror, the reflection of the law
I just wanna show you something new (new)




Everything is funny when you see it
DVD, my life is a cartoon

Overall Meaning

In Bladee's song Reality Surf, the lyrics explore themes of reality and perception. The opening lines, "Tree so ripe, we got fruit, we got crowns, salute it," could be interpreted as a metaphor for the abundance and potential of life. The lyrics go on to suggest taking a concept or word and changing its meaning, perhaps indicating the malleability of reality and the power of perception to shape our experience.


The chorus repeats the phrase "reality surf" three times, suggesting a kind of fluidity or mutability to reality, as if one can ride the waves of perception and ride out whatever comes one's way. This idea is reinforced by the bridge, which describes how "everything is funny when you see it," and the closing line, "DVD, my life is a cartoon," which seems to echo the idea that life is a series of perceptions and experiences that can be interpreted in different ways.


Throughout the song, Bladee's lyrics are abstract and poetic, weaving together different ideas and images like "venom in the vile," "snakes slither in the spine," and "looking for the arrow when you shoot." Overall, the song seems to be encouraging listeners to view reality as something fluid and changeable, and to embrace the power of perception to shape their lives and experiences.
