Toxic
BoyWithUke Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

All my friends are toxic, all ambitionless
So rude and always negative
I need new friends, but it's not that quick and easy
Oh, I'm drowning, let me breathe

I'm better off all by myself
Though I'm feelin' kinda empty without somebody else
Oh, I hear you cryin' out for help
But you never showed for me when I was ringin' your cell phone
Oh, you don't know how it feels to be alone
Baby, oh, I'll make you know, I'll make you know

(I'm drowning, let me breathe)
(I'm drowning, let me breathe)
(I'm drowning, let me breathe)
(I'm drowning, let me breathe)

But life is immaculate, backin' it up a bit
Countin' my hours and knockin' on wood
Avoidin' my opposites, chewin' on chocolate
Had a bit limited time, but I should
Be good for a minute, don't want to admit it
I'm runnin' on seconds, I'm rigid, I'm screwed
Don't know what to do, I'm thinkin' of you
I'm drinkin' up bottles and bottles of booze

I'm better off all by myself
Though I'm feelin' kinda empty without somebody else
Oh, I hear you cryin' out for help
But you never showed for me when I was ringin' your cell phone
Oh, you don't know how it feels to be alone
Baby, oh, I'll make you know, I'll make you know

I fell into your river, that's where you told me lies
You said that I'd feel better, but this is where good guys die
You took my pride away, but you cannot take my life
I'll find another way out, but now you're takin' my life
Don't you see how I

I'm better off all by myself
Though I'm feelin' kinda empty without somebody else
Oh, I hear you cryin' out for help
But you never showed for me when I was ringin' your cell phone
Oh, you don't know how it feels to be alone
Baby, oh, I'll make you know, I'll make you know, oh, oh

I'm better off all by myself
Though I'm feelin' kinda empty without somebody else
Oh, I hear you cryin' out for help
But you never showed for me when I was ringin' your cell phone




Oh, you don't know how it feels to be alone
Baby, oh, I'll make you know, I'll make you know

Overall Meaning

The song "Toxic" by BoyWithUke talks about the struggles of dealing with toxic friends and the need to distance oneself from them. The first few lines describe the singer's friends as "toxic" and "ambitionless," which is a clear indication that they are not good influences. The singer expresses how difficult it is to find new friends because it is not an easy process. The lyric "Oh, I'm drowning, let me breathe" emphasizes the struggle and the feeling of suffocation that comes from being around toxic people.


The second verse talks about the singer's individuality and how they feel better off alone. The line "I'm runnin' on seconds, I'm rigid, I'm screwed" suggests that the singer is very aware of the limited time they have and how they don't want to waste it on toxic people. The line "I'm drinkin' up bottles and bottles of booze" describes how the singer may be trying to cope with their loneliness and emptiness but it is not a healthy solution.


The chorus repeats the idea that the singer is "better off all by myself" but also acknowledges the feeling of emptiness that comes with that. The bridge talks about how the singer was misled by someone, who took away their pride, but cannot take their life. The final chorus repeats the message that the singer does not want to be alone but is willing to distance themselves from toxic friends.

You don't understand how lonely it can be without someone to fall back on


Baby, oh, I'll make you know, I'll make you know
But I will help you experience it if you're willing to learn

I am in a great spot in life and taking a moment to appreciate it

I am cautious and hoping for things to continue going well


Avoidin' my opposites, chewin' on chocolate
I'm staying away from people who have opposing views, and I'm munching on some chocolate


Had a bit limited time, but I should

I'll be fine for a short time, but I don't want to accept that


I'm runnin' on seconds, I'm rigid, I'm screwed
I am out of time, and everything seems to be falling apart


Don't know what to do, I'm thinkin' of you
I am having trouble deciding what to do and am considering your opinion


I'm drinkin' up bottles and bottles of booze
I am drinking too much alcohol to try and cope with my problems


I fell into your river, that's where you told me lies
I trusted you and believed your deceitful words


You said that I'd feel better but this is where good guys die
You told me that things would work out, but it only ended in disappointment


You took my pride away, but you cannot take my life
You hurt my self-esteem, but I am not letting you control me completely


I'll find another way out but now you're takin' my life
I will find a new path to follow, but it feels like you are holding me back
