Bellyache Lyrics

Mind
Mind

Sitting all alone, mouth full of gum
In the driveway
My friends aren't far, in the back of my car
Lay their bodies

Where's my mind
Where's my mind

They'll be here pretty soon, looking through my room
For the money
I'm...

    I think its a way for her to express that she has hurt the people around her, and she knows its her fault. She might feel almost like a psycho for the things she has done. She hurts her friends, and now they might as well be dead. Her lover is already gone and hurt. The repetitiveness of people being hurt around her makes her feel insane, like she's losing her mind. And the guilt gives her a bellyache.

    Okay I'm gonna tell you the real meaning to this song. But before I do let me say this. NO this song is not about a girl who killed all her friend LITERALLY. Thats an iditic way to look at it. All the lyrics in this song are metaphors.

    The song is about how Billie became famous and inventually hurt all her friends {emotionally} which is why they are dead in the music video. The 'bellyache' she feels is the guilt because her friends probably just think she did it for money.

    She also broke up with her boyfriend because she couldnt take the pressure and doesnt like just dating one person at a time ( she said this in a interview) He was proabably heartbroken so it feels like she left him in a gutter. The cops in the song she talks about are her inside demons or rather her conscience knowing she'll pay for what she did to the people she hurt.

    THANKS FOR READINGGG

    She portrays a psychopath that kills her friends and lover. At first she thinks she’s fine, but the guilt follows her. She can’t deal with the guilt and it gives her a “bellyache”. She doesn’t know what to do and it’s making her crazy. So at the end of the day she ends up taking her own life.

    Billie explain a character who have lost her feelings. She abandoned her lover (maybe it's in a gutter where I left my lover). She probably has a blood feud with someone ( my V is for Vendetta). Billie belly ache is a song I like and relate to.

    Billie has said something along the lines of “the song is about doing terrible things and not knowing why”. She killed her friends, her ex (who she left in the gutter) and possibly more. By doing this she is committing a vendetta.

    I think its just all about a girl that hurt her friends maybe because they offended her and now she has a belly ache which is a metaphorical word for guilty..

    I think a family was willing to pay her to kill the murderer of another family member to avenge them hence the line "my V is for vendetta" now she is regretting it hence the line "now I got bellyache"

    Does someone know if it has anything to do with the movie "v for vendetta"? I mean, there are no coincidences, right?

    This song is about and individual who is a psychopath guilty about committing murder but doesn't care that he/she is a psychopath....Idk if that makes any sense...

    It portrays a larger than life picture of how vulnerable the human conscience is..

    Apparently the psychopath died eventually

    The song is quite literally about someone committing a murdering and guilt. Billie has stated multiple times that she and Finneas enjoy writing in somebody else's point of view.

    To me, this is about being reckless, then regretting it soon. Billie has destructed many things (in the song) and then got a bellyache she was so worried.

    Maybe the lyrics "My V is for Vendetta" meant that she felt played by the people closest to her and acted on impulse trying to kill them. After that realised that even though she wanted to do that the guilt took over and could no longer distinguish the truth from the guilt and it started driving her insane.

    With respect,
    Ghost

    The meaning of the song is about a girl that killed her friends. This is the real interpretation of it, because Billie Eilish states that it is "flat out about murder"

    I know this is a weird interpretation but what if "my v" can be interpreted for a girls virginity (ok ok stay with me) and maybe when she goes "vendetta" she may reference that she slept with some one for revenge , maybe for her previous boyfriend which maybe in the "gutter" which could be a signal for her mind. Like when people say 'get your mind out of your gutter' , it could indicate that maybe her ex is stuck on her mind and she is unable to get him out and she is so frustrated that she went with someone else? And the next line she goes "i thought that id feel better" which could indicate a sense of quilt for what she has done towards her ex, which demonstrates that this maybe a night or a couple of nights after she did the deed and now she is feeling regretful. When she repeats "where's my mind" throughout the song, it could imply that this is spinning in her mind as she is always thinking about it. Then on the line "Now ive got a bellyache" could imply guilt or maybe even pregnancy. In the beginning she says "Where's my mind" which later moves to " I lost my mind, I don't mind" which could demonstrate that maybe she has changed her mind and maybe she has done something to her baby which references to the term "lost" - abortion? Or maybe she is accepting that she has a this baby/guilt which is why she says "i dont mind". I know it's a little far fetched but if you look at it by not viewing that Billie Eilish sang it and by looking at it at a diffrent angle, you can kinda see what im coming from.
