White Meadow
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Waves crash down, clouds fly by
The hands still warm but I've turned cold now
Face dragged down, crowds pass by
The years go on, life finds new meaning
Sky comes down, peace be found
The noble strive, the great perfection
Deep, deep down, silent shout
A flower sprouts, tries to reach heaven

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

You know, every footstep follows you around
Pick the sweetest poison
You know this, don't you?
Pick the sweetest poison
You know, every footstep follows you around
Pick the sweetest poison
You know this, don't you?
Pick the sweetest poison

(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)

Blue light siren call, behind the city wall
Asphalt, acid wash, wash up against the rocks
Blue light siren call, behind the city wall
Asphalt, acid wash
Closer in, come closer in
I wonder
Closer in, come closer in
Closer, closer in, come closer
Closer, closer in, come closer
Closer, closer in, come closer
I wonder




Closer in, come closer in
Closer in, come closer in

The second stanza alludes to a sense of self-destructiveness that the person is aware of, but they cannot help but "pick the sweetest poison."

The blue light siren call behind the city wall represents the chaos and turmoil of modern urban life.
