Skin
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't want to go back to that place again
Nothing will ever be the same again
Never even cared if it's fake pretend
Maybe you can show me what it takes to end forever
Emptiness it came again
When its from inside you know you can't defend against it
Writing but I can't press send
Kisses from the raindrops tell me wait again, one last time

Clean, clean, clean, cut the rope let me in
Wings, wings, wings, I grow wings I go in
Scars, scars, scars I got scars on my arms
Fall, fall, fall out of love and apart
Skin, skin, skin let the skin touch the skin
Wind, wind, wind, never was never been
I'm sinking it goes up to my chin
White, white, white grey to black ever since

Clean, clean, clean, cut the rope let me in
Wings, wings, wings, I grow wings I go in
Scars, scars, scars I got scars on my arms
Fall, fall, fall out of love and apart
Skin, skin, skin let the skin touch the skin
Wind, wind, wind, never was never been




I'm sinking it goes up to my chin
White, white, white grey to black ever since

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee's song Skin explore feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, and a desire to escape from the pain that the singer is experiencing. The opening lines refer to a place that the singer doesn't want to return to, which could be a metaphor for a past situation or a state of mind that they have fought hard to overcome. The next lines seem to suggest that the singer has come to realize that nothing will ever be the same again and they are resigned to this fact. The next two lines, "Never even cared if it's fake pretend/Maybe you can show me what it takes to end forever," could imply that the singer is trying to break free from the cycle of negative emotions and is looking for someone to help them find a way out.


The next verse talks about the emptiness that the singer is experiencing and how it's impossible to defend against it. The line "Kisses from the raindrops tell me wait again, one last time" is a poignant reference to the fleeting nature of happiness or joy, and how it's often short-lived. The song then moves on to the chorus, which seems to suggest that the singer wants to break free from the pain and confusion that they are experiencing. The repeated references to "clean cut", "wings", and "skin" could be interpreted as the singer's desire for a fresh start or a new beginning. The line "I'm sinking it goes up to my chin/White, white, white grey to black ever since" is a powerful image of being consumed by darkness, and the constant repetition of the lines only serves to reinforce the sense of hopelessness and despair.
