Copy Cat Lyrics
Analyze my every move, what current state I'm in
'Cause you are colder than ice on my skin
Wanna get that A+, baby
So you take my shit
'Cause I am little, right?
I won't call you out
Teacher saying "You'd...

This is about people taking the credit for other people's work and not caring about the harm they may cause the original creator.

It sings about those who like to copy other people's hard work and claim it as their own and the person who created it doesn't get credit.

This song is about how some people copy other people's work and they get the credit but the people who have worked on it don't at all. The people that copy are referred to as copycats who are obsessed with the attention and power.
Melanie is talking about Timothy Heller :/ They were friends once but after Melanie was accused of rape and/or sexual assault twice, they weren't friends anymore. Timothy is also a song writer but obviously not as big as Melanie and people are saying Timothy said that because shes jealous but back to the point. Timothy Heller used that accusation to make Melanie idk drop or something? And the lyric "falling flat" can refer to Timothy's failing career.

This is about how someone steals someone else’s ideas and passes them off as their own, without giving the original creator the credit they deserve. E.g. Timothy Heller’s song “Sleep” has a very similar guitar riff/sound (at the beginning) to Melanie Martinez’ unreleased song “Night Mime”, which was released years after Melanie’s song was leaked. It is most likely that Timothy copied Melanie’s chord/riff- this song could be about Timothy.

WHO DID SHE CALL OUT?
Lizzo? Billie Eilish? Or maybe........TEIRRA WHACK!
No one Knows for sure but I think it is Tierra.

This song, to me, shows that somebody has done something to her in the past and wanted to tell the world about it. It’s the same with alphabet boy. That’s about one of her exes who thought he was teaching her about how to properly write songs
