Styrofoam
Lil Ugly Mane Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hello?
Yes, this is Purgatory! The Devil, speaking!

My teeth are contraceptives
They keep the words inside my mouth
My seat′s been ejected
Now I'm flying past your house
I feel tired and I think I′m done with trying
If everything was styrofoam
Love would cost a dime

Crime scene photos of a moth without its wings
Goes unnoticed
But it still hears everything

Smoke is heavy and I think I'm going blind
If everything was styrofoam
You'd still be on my mind

It′s always midnight
And the day shift never starts
And I just pick fights
And I fall asleep in bars

I feel tired and I think I′m done with trying




If everything was styrofoam
I wouldn't be alive

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to "Styrofoam" by Lil Ugly Mane explore themes of exhaustion, disillusionment, and the idea that everything in life is disposable. The opening lines, with the devil speaking from purgatory, set a dark and eerie tone for the song. The reference to teeth being like contraceptives suggests that the singer is withholding their true thoughts and emotions, keeping them locked away. The line "My seat's been ejected, now I'm flying past your house" could symbolize the singer feeling detached from their surroundings and moving on from relationships or situations.


The chorus further illustrates the singer's weariness and resignation. They express feeling tired of trying and suggest that if everything in life were as disposable as styrofoam, then love would lose its worth. This indicates a sense of disillusionment with relationships and a belief that love has become cheapened and superficial.


The second verse introduces the metaphor of a moth without its wings, symbolizing someone who is damaged or vulnerable. The lyrics suggest that despite feeling unnoticed, this person still hears and absorbs everything around them. The mention of heavy smoke and going blind could represent the singer feeling overwhelmed and detached from reality.


The final verse portrays a sense of perpetual darkness and aimlessness. The singer feels stuck in a never-ending cycle, always picking fights and seeking distraction in places like bars. The repetition of feeling tired and done with trying reflects their exhaustion and possible desire to give up. The closing line, "If everything was styrofoam, I wouldn't be alive," suggests that the singer sees their existence as pointless in a world where nothing has lasting value.


Overall, "Styrofoam" paints a picture of someone grappling with deep disillusionment, fatigue, and a sense of detachment from the world around them. It conveys a feeling of hopelessness and the longing for something more substantial in life.
