Orange Juice Lyrics
I'm watching from the bathroom
Making sure I don't choke, choke
From the words you spoke
When you're screaming at the mirror
Now you're sitting in the cafeteria
Shoving clementines and orange bacteria

Crybaby's classmate, Fleur, suffers from bulimia.
Bulimia is where you throw up all the food you ate to lose the weight gained from it. Crybaby is trying to tell her she's perfect the way she is and begs her to stop her eating disorder. This is telling people that it doesn't matter what they look like, just accept yourself for who you are.

The song addresses eating disorders, specifically bulimia. She talks about wanting to be more attractive by being skinnier.
The use of oranges in the song can be contributed to the fact that vomit can taste similar to orange juice due to acidity.

This song is about bulimia and eating disorders. Turning “oranges to orange juice” is a metaphor for people who purge or throw up their food so they can be skinnier.
“Your body is imperfectly perfect.”
That couldn’t be truer.
