Mad Hatter Lyrics

Play "Mad Hatter"
on Amazon Music

My friends don't walk they run.
Skinny dip in rabbit holes for fun.
Poppin', poppin' balloons with guns.
Gettin' high off helium.
We paint white roses red.
Each shade from a different person's head.
This dream, dream is a killer,...

    It's about Crybaby finally finding her clique,people who are just like her. She came from a broken home surrounded by madness so she kinda accepted her own craziness and embraced her crazy side.
    She finds normal people scary and that's a metafore for non-conformism and not fitting in with what's considered normal. Melanie herself actually is kinda "on the crazy side" so she decided to put it into lyrics...and nailed it :)

    I have a mental illness as well, so I understand the feeling of being a crazy person, and being very different from society. The normal people scare her because they cannot relate and they are trying to make her be someone else. There are many Alice in Wonderland references, that make sense as everyone there is crazy and makes her feel better. I do have depression/anxiety so this song is my favorite and is personally relatable. Thx 4 reading

    I think it means that crybaby is struggling to find a way to cope with her past and present emotions. According to the song it states that she is "getting high off helium" which means she is struggling too cope with the pain, so she turned to getting high. I like this song very much my favorite line is "so what if I'm crazy the best people are." Overall this song relates to me a lot

    Personally, in my opinion I think it's, (the song), is linked to Dollhouse. Her family is truly messed up and everyone thinks that there perfect, but in reality, they're the total opposite. Anyways, I think Mad Hatter is about how her family is sadly, messed up and she is trying to act perfect but then she realizes that she's different and needs people like her. (Different, not the same, unique)

    This is based off Alice in Wonderland. As seen by the quotes "we paint white roses red" and "skinny dip in rabbit holes for fun" because alice fell into a rabbit hole. This is about Crybaby being crazy and having her own little wonderland

    Being crazy means being yourself. The normals are the people that are fake, not themselves. She finaly found some crazy friends and accepts her self.

    As someone with a mental illness, her lyrics seem like she's fantasizing mental illnesses.

    It's is about CryBaby being crazy from her family and she is finally expressing it. She finally finds friends that are crazy with her. She is afraid of the normals because she doesn't fit in with them and they think she is weird.

    I think that people think CryBaby is sick so don't hang out with her. It makes sense because she comes from a abusive family as you saw in dollhouse. So she finally fines people who are just like her. When she finally embraces her flaws she does fine friends. She feels insane like when she says the lyric" the crazies make me feel sane" stating she finally belongs somewhere better than her family she comes from.

    Crybaby is finally excepting who she is. She doesn't care if people don't accept her she will just remember she is crazy, insane, and emotional. She was always afraid to tell people things but now she can step out of her comfort zone.
