"Sippy Cup" as written by Melanie Martinez, Jeremy Dussolliet and Timothy Sommers....
Blood still stains when the sheets are washed
Sex don't sleep when the lights are off
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup
He's still dead when you're done with the bottle
Of course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
Syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

Blood money, blood money
How did you afford this ring that I love, honey?
Just another shift at the drug company,
He doesn't think I'm that fucking dumb does he?
It doesn't matter what you pull up to your home
We know what goes on inside
You call that ass your own, we call that silicone
Silly girl with silly boys

Blood still stains when the sheets are washed
Sex don't sleep when the lights are off
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup
He's still dead when you're done with the bottle
Of course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
Syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

Sippy cup, s-s-sippy cup, in a sippy cup, sut sippy cup
In a sippy cup, in a sippy cup, in a sippy cup, in a sippy cup

Pill diet, pill diet, if they give you a new pill then you will buy it
If they say to kill yourself, then you will try it
All the makeup in the world, won't make you less insecure
You got weights in your pockets, when you go to the doctor's
Your favorite candy's cotton, that's why all your teeth are rotten
Silly girl with silly boys

Blood still stains when the sheets are washed
Sex don't sleep when the lights are off
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup
He's still dead when you're done with the bottle
Of course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
Syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

Sippy cup, s-s-sippy cup, in a sippy cup, sut sippy cup
In a sippy cup, in a sippy cup, in a sippy cup, in a sippy cup

Blood still stains when the sheets are washed
Sex don't sleep when the lights are off
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

    General CommentI feel like this is about a mixture of bad parenting and how it fucks you up with hints of molestation. Also about society and how it fucks you up. It's not really cotton candy, it's just cotton. Models eat cotton to feel full. Her teeth are rotten because of malnutrition and purging. I feel like this song also references parents who keep their kids sick for attention, syrup with some sort of poison.

    My InterpretationWhat I think is

    Just because you want me to think one way about something, doesn't mean I will

    "Blood still stains when the sheets are washed; Sex don't sleep when the lights are off"

    I really think these lines are saying just we aren't stupid and you aren't sneaky.

    "He's still dead when you're done with the bottle; Of course it's a course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle":

    No matter how you disguise or cover up the situation to sugar coat what it really is, people can always tell.

    "Kids are still depressed when you dress them up; Syrup is still syrup in a Sippy Cup"

    The gist of the song (to me) is basically you aren't being as sneaky as you think you are

    General CommentI feel like this song means that although you try to hide the truth you can't: 'Kids are still depressed when you dress them up' and 'syrup is still strup in a sippy cup' because syrup looks better in a sippy cup right? And blood still stains even if you clean it and all the makeup in the world won't make you less insecure so again you try to hide it So basically you try to hide the truth that is behind all these makeup and nice stuff and clothes. You hide it to the world and it works but it doesn't for yourself

    General Commenti thinks its about a mom who drinks too much and no matter what it is it is still a drink. her kids are depressed about what is happening and scarred. she does stuff like have sex but then also kills them from being drunk (and i think she thinks her husband is lying to her)

    My InterpretationI think that it relates a lot to virginity and stuff. 'Blood on the sheets' is usually relates to sex. So even if you wash the sheets that fact still remain that you have sinned. When the lights go off, youre supposed to sleep, but you will still sin (sex dont sleep.) No matter how much you try to cover it up, or dress it up, your mistake still remains just as bad. Syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup, a spade is a spade.

    My InterpretationFor the part "Kids are still depressed when you dress them up," I think that it means that even if it doesn't seem like it, some one can still be depressed. For example someone could be depressed (Kids are still depressed) even if they hide it, with a fake smile or just pretending they're ok (When you dress them up)

    General Comment(I'm not very good with words, but bare with me)

    The way I see it, is basically it's still the same.. So when she says "Syrup is still Syrup in a sippy cup".. It's still syrup no matter what it is it. It's not juice becuase it's in a sippy cup.. And where it says "Kids are still depressed when you dress them up" just because you dress them up. and say go outside and have fun ect.. they're still depressed...

    (I'm 500% sure that doesn't make sense."
