The Void
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
I'm aching for it, aching for it
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
I'm aching for it, aching for it
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
One step back, two steps forward
One foot into the vortex
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
Aching for it, I'm aching for it
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
Two steps back, one step forward
One foot into the vortex
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
Aching for it, I'm aching for it

Forget it, tell me the truth, don't lie to me
You in mind but won't remember in 21 seconds
Forget it, tell me the truth, don't lie to me
You in mind but won't remember in 21 seconds

Had to save the date, what a day
We don't know what to say anyway
Flip up on the way, went away
You in mind, but won't remember in twenty one seconds

I got away but I will wait again
Nah, nah, nah, no more surprises
I got my eyes red from the weed again
Fall, fall, fall, I can't accept

I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it (I'm aching for it)
One step back, two steps forward
One foot into the vortex




I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it
I'm aching for it, I'm aching for it

Overall Meaning

In "The Void," Bladee, Ecco2k, and Thaiboy Digital express their longing for something they can't quite define. The repeated phrase "I'm aching for it" creates a sense of desperation and desire, while the lines "One step back, two steps forward / One foot into the vortex" suggest a willingness to take risks in pursuit of this unknown goal, even if it means getting sucked into the unknown.


The second half of the song brings in the perspective of another person or perhaps a voice within the singer's own head: "Forget it, tell me the truth, don't lie to me / You in mind but won't remember in 21 seconds." Here, the singer is searching for clarity from someone who either can't or won't provide it, and the final lines "I'm aching for it / One step back, two steps forward / One foot into the vortex" suggest that they'll continue to pursue this goal even in the face of uncertainty.


Overall, "The Void" is a powerful exploration of both desire and ambiguity, using haunting synth lines and disorienting production to create a sense of unease and longing.
