Advice Lyrics

I lost all my lunch
I threw it on the ground
I don't wanna talk
Don't wanna be around
I know you're trying to help
I think that's really nice
But I know myself
I don't need your advice
I've got a hint for you
Take it
Are you hungry?

    I think this is about toxic friends trying to pull you down,and justs being general bullies.when he gives 100% all the time,they only give 1% back.he is constantly killing himself for them,but all he gets back is abuse

    I feel like this song is about toxic friends who only give a shit about themselves. They always vent to him but they never even took the time to think about how he felt. He just wants someone to listen and care, he gives his 110% always and everyone only gives him 5% back. He wants people to just like him and not take him for granted. He's always there for them but they are never there for me. Sorry this is just my interpretation because I went through something similar recently

    I think he’s just sick of everyone thinking they know what’s best and telling him what to do but he knows himself best (as does everyone) and just tired of being told the same thing all the time in general

    i think its about a trans kid in a school where they are out to the school in the line i am not your conversation people could be talking about how they are trans also in the line i cant be my self with out expansion could be to that they want to change genders and people are questioning why they would want to do and the line i don't want your advice could be talking about how they don't want to hear people talking about how they should transition or act but idk if this is me projecting

    In my opinion, it focus on how annoying is to be receiving advices all the time (pretty obvios right). He’s just tired; he knows they’re trying to help, they’ve tell him so many times the same stuff that he can’t listen to that no longer. People is always saying stuff like “you told me not to quit. Said: This is how it is, you're giving them your life”

    He just wants space and being himself. “I can be myself without explanation”
