Lunchbox Friends Lyrics
Oh-oh no, oh-oh no
You said, "Hey, girl, will you sit with me?
Table in the back of Cafeteria C?
We can be friends if you want to be
But only 'til the clock hits three
After lunch, we can walk to class
Talk about the...

I think it's about toxic or fake friends. Crybaby/Melanie makes some friends who she thinks are real at first. When they start ignoring her she realizes that she's made a mistake. It also may talk about a naive person making friends who turn out to be fake or toxic.I think fake because of the line
"After that I’ll ignore your ass” explaining the fact that they don't care, and might be using her.I also think maybe toxic because they may be trying to change her to be like them,to make friends and ditch them for the fun of it

Crybaby doesn't want fake friends that will only hang out with her at lunch time, but a friendship that will last forever, not just until the clock hits 3. She doesn't want to be a part of the group that gossips about people that they have no idea about, and just wants some real friends.

It’s totally about fake friends because the line we can be friends if you want to be but only til the clock hits three, it describes as if she wants to have real friends forever and not for just a little bit of time, and actually this song totally describes me with my friends

I think this song is about how she just wants real friends and not people who will only talk to her for gossip, and then dump her.

Could relate to how Melanie recalled finding it hard to make friends as a teenager in school and how people are fake and pretend to be someone they aren’t (e.g Timothy Heller)

This song is about “fake friends” and how crybaby wants real friends who understand her and will always be there for her! In lunchbox friends kelly is using her and says they can be friend untill three o clock
