Milk and Cookies Lyrics

1, 2, melatonin is coming for you
3, 4, baby, won't you lock the door?
5, 6, I'm done with it
7, 8, it's getting late, so close your eyes, sleep the days

Hush, little baby, drink your spoiled milk
I'm fucking crazy, need my prescription...

    This is just one of my experiences, but when I first got into The crybaby album I Dead thought it was when crybaby was still a baby/kid and that It was her mother having postpartum depression or Just Depression, and wanting to get rid of Crybaby,did anyone else think that? and since in the last songs, she was reavealed as an achoholic, i assumed she knew about drugs too

    MY OPINION: i think that the wolf was a kidnapper and a rapist and he was forcing Melanie to make "desert" (witch is probably sex) and she puts him to bed with melationin, because melationion are sleep pills basiclly so she can escape.

    When she first wakes up from the wolf guy drugging her, she wakes up in a toy box, and mabey thats a symbol of her being just a toy to the wolf to 'play with'

    My interpretation is the song is about running away/ exposing your abuser. The lyrics, "S*it behind the curtain that I'm sick of sugar coating" makes me think that it's about exposing your abuser. It could also be about hiding your plan. Also, the lyrics"5, 6, I'm done with this" could be them getting the courage to get away from the abuser. Them poisoning the wolf could be them waiting until they have a moment to get away. I don't know how good this is but it'll be ok.

    Cry Baby (protagonist) got kidnapped and got taken to Big Bad Wolf (kidnapper)'s house. He orders her to make dessert, and she gives him melatonin, so that he falls asleep and she can make an escape plan. Then she puts some kind of poison in the cookies, causing him to either pass out or drop dead. Then she leaves the house and escapes.

    When i first heard the song (not watching the double feature) i thought it might be that she is taking the perspective of an abusive mother hinting towards "Hush little baby drink your spoiled milk" And through the years there has been some stuff on the news about mothers being abusive due to a medical condition, drug or alcohol abuse or trauma. I just wanted to put what i thought because i didn't see it on here yet.

    Crybaby gets kidnapped but the cashier hears her say Bad Wolf will kidnap her and gives crybaby a bottle of poison knowing what will happen and saves crybaby's life with the poison in Milk and Cookies. So it really is the cashier who saved Crybaby's life.

    More literal theme: This is the sequel to the music video “Tag your it” when the big bad wolf kidnaps her. In this song she makes poisonous milk and cookies and kills him so she can escape.

    This is what continues after Tag You're it. Crybaby bakes a batch of cookies for her kidnapper, but poisons them. She says things like "Need to put you to bed" and 'Sing you a lull-a-bye where you die at the end" probably planning her escape. "S**t behind the curtain that I'm sick of sugar coating" she's tired of making sure her kidnapper doesn't know what she's doing.

    It’s basically a continuation of Tag You’re It (you have to watch both of them to fully understand the song.) In TYI, Crybaby is given a bottle of poison by the cashier who hears her saying that the wolf is trying to kidnap her. Then the wolf kidnaps Crybaby and she wakes up and has to bake for the wolf (possibly sexual). She finds the bottle of poison on the floor and puts it in the cookie dough while the wolf is on the phone and not watching her. Then he eats them and dies, and she leaves after pouring milk on him (probably to degrade him).

    In "Tag You're it", Crybaby got kidnapped by the wolf. He could've possibly raped her. He might even be in love with her. And one day she serves him milk and cookies that she poisoned.

    She brings the poisonous milk and cookies up to him as a gift. But it's really a trick to kill him.

    She runs away after she poisons him.

    Crybaby might be killing a abusive boyfriend with poisoned milk and cookies. She probably killed him so she could escape him.

    So the song milk and cookies is basically a sequel for tag you're it where Crybaby poisons the wolf who kidnapped her in tag you're it. Crybaby poisons him by giving him milk and cookies.

    I think that when she says "think twice before you pick up the phone" pretty much means that if your home alone dont pick up the phone

    I think that the wolf is a symbol for a predator that kidnaps children. In Tag your it/Milk n cookies double feature she wakes up in a toy box. The wolf might be using the toys to calm the kids down so that they won't be mad. Milk and cookies may be a sign of ( you know what). The melatonin is to escape her kidnapper.

    I agree with all of this stuff I thought of this as he was wanting her to do sexual stuff to him and her trying to get away.

    How about the a interpretation from the lyrics, not the video.
    She thought of metaphors making the song and a situation.
    Not a damn music video.

    My interpretation may be a bit weird, but I'm hoping it will get people to understand the videos. Wolf=Captor(boyfriend or possibly rapist). Melanie (Crybaby) = is being demanded by wolf to make "dessert "(sex?). Milk and Cookies = "dessert " (crybaby was possibly in an abusive relationship) . Melatonin = Poison (No Duh!)
