SmartWater
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Big bottle of dirty water
Onto the street, walk around with dirty Pradas, I feel like F1LTHY
Gotta win something, just let me have it
Just let me hold something, I'm not an expert

If you stand for nothing, what would you fall for?
Fell through a trap door, turned to an actor
Just let me try one time, that's all I ask for
That's all I ask for, nothing too special
If we could merge to one, then we could build something
To recreate myself, I have to kill something
If you would want me dead, I would be into it
I just want your attention

Be my star, three wishes
One that is you
I'm almost gone, grey city
Darkness falls again, one last time

Step on spiders in my Prada loafers
Got them in Austria
Windows open because I got claustrophobia
Paranoid but I feel sober
DG9 CEO striker, bloody Nikes
Living dirty forever, trying to die nicer
Deo freeze you, I'm a icer
Dirty weed, it smell like rubber
I've been workin' undercover
I can't go out like a sucker
Bloodless I don't wanna go there
Run the city like it's Gotham
Link ten bags, I had to lock 'em
Virgin blood, I like it fresh man
See three stars, I must collect them
Evil calling, I neglect it
ECCO2K, we talkin' to dolphins
I won't talk to no imposter
Quit this shit, I pulled the Joker
Sit down with me, start it over
Hot or cold, I'm coming closer
I can't go out like a loser, I can't go out when it's sunny

Big bottle of dirty water
I do the street, walk around with dirty Pradas, I feel like F1LTHY




Gotta win something, just let me have it
Just let me hold something, I'm not an expert

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee's song SmartWater are seemingly disconnected, with the artist jumping from topic to topic without a clear throughline. However, a closer examination reveals themes of emptiness, competitiveness, and the desire for attention. Bladee starts the song with a metaphor for his own dirty thoughts, comparing them to a big bottle of dirty water. He walks around in dirty Pradas, feeling like F1LTHY, a reference to his frequent collaborator who is known for his graphic lyrics and disturbing imagery. Bladee is trying to win something, to fill the void inside him, and pleading with someone to just let him have or hold something without being an expert in anything.


Bladee then asks a philosophical question - if you stand for nothing, what would you fall for? This is followed by a reference to falling into a trap door and becoming an actor, possibly referencing the feeling of losing oneself in the pursuit of fame or success. He asks for someone to let him try one time, and that's all he asks for, indicating that he is constantly seeking validation and recognition. He expresses a desire to merge with someone else and create something, but acknowledges that in order to do so, he has to kill something about himself and recreate himself anew. The song ends with Bladee's signature themes of darkness and isolation, with the imagery of a grey city and darkness falling again for one last time.
