BENADRYL SUBMARINE
Lil Ugly Mane Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Time′s lost every night I sleep
Eyes crossed trying not to blink and just to breathe
There's ivy twisting through the bricks outside
Is it taking over or just clinging on for life?

Wonder where your dogs′ll go
When they realize there's no bombs to find
Stuck back in that welded worm with you
Slink around the farmers house without our shoe

Ask your talk show questions
Kick me around
I'll pretend I paid attention
Then I′ll paddle out and drown

Feeling like I′m just a bridge for you to cross a stream
You watch me fall apart and never intervene
Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine

Feeling like I'm just a bridge for you to cross a stream
You watch me fall apart and never intervene
Benadryl submarine, run away like I′m 17

Feeling like I'm just a bridge for you to cross a stream
You watch me fall apart and never intervene
Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine

Feeling like I′m just a bridge for you to cross a stream
You watch me fall apart and never intervene
Benadryl submarine, run away like I'm 17

Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine
Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine
Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine




Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine
Benadryl submarine, Benadryl submarine

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Lil Ugly Mane's song "BENADRYL SUBMARINE" convey a sense of disorientation and detachment from reality. The opening lines suggest a state of sleep deprivation or restlessness, where time seems to slip away while the singer struggles to simply breathe and keep their eyes open. The mention of ivy twisting through the bricks outside could be interpreted metaphorically as the intrusion of nature into urban spaces, questioning whether it is a takeover or a desperate clinging to life.


The next lines introduce a sense of confusion and aimlessness. The mention of dogs searching for bombs, only to realize there are none, suggests a loss of purpose or meaning. The mention of a "welded worm" refers to being trapped in a constricted and uncomfortable situation. The phrase "slink around the farmers house without our shoe" further emphasizes a sense of aimless wandering or trespassing.


The following lines introduce a theme of passive interaction and the singer's frustration with being treated as a bridge or a mere stepping stone by someone else. They feel watched and fall apart, but the observer never intervenes. The repetition of "Benadryl submarine" throughout the song indicates a dissociative state, where the singer may be seeking escape or numbness from their reality. The mention of running away like they're 17 implies a desire to break free from the burdens of adulthood and responsibilities.


Overall, "BENADRYL SUBMARINE" portrays a sense of disconnection, confusion, and a desire for escape from the pressures and expectations of life.
