Pacify Her Lyrics

Pacify her
She's getting on my nerves
You don't love her
Stop lying with those words

I can't stand her whining
Where's her binky now?
And loving her seems tiring
So boy, just love me, down, down, down

    This song is about jealousy. There is a man she is in love with, but she sees him with a new girl. And she can’t stand it. She knows these two definitely are a thing. She knows deep down that the right thing to do is leave them alone and stay out of their relationship. But she just can’t help but be jealous and upset. She believes this man doesn’t truly love the other girl, and that she’s the only girl right for him. Not her.

    I think this song is about an argument with two lovers about cheating. The male lover just wants the female to be quiet, that's where the; "Pacify her, she's getting on my nerves!" and the; "Where's her binky now?" parts come into place. The pacifier and the binky isn't meant to be literal, it's metaphorical for wanting something that'll make the female go quiet, similar to how pacifiers make babies go quiet when they cry, wanting to suckle that. That's also, most likely, why in the video, the girl in blue places a piece of torn paper in her mouth/tongue, a sarcastic tone of what the male wants. The part where she tears the dolls' heads, is a similarity to how toddler's throw tantrums whenever they want something, it's how the male sees the female. The part with her head is most likely a literal version of the "blasting her head off" metaphor, she's shouting so much she blasts her head off.

    The song has a love triangle vibe and a boy who can't chose the right person. It seems blondie the whore likes him just for sex and seems like she has nobody for it so she trying to keep him by showing her boobs. I'm guessing crybaby sees what's going on and wants him to not go the wrong way. But he goes the wrong way anyway. When I hear this song, I feel crybaby knows what's real and what's not. I think she knows based on actions and etc. But its heart breaking because a boy she once loved don't know what's real and fake. So, he chose to stay in a fake and toxic one. Some people can relate to this song because some people can tell if something is real or fake.

    I believe she feels that she is being cheated and that the mam doesn’t actually have feelings about the other woman and is basically saying I am the best and this woman does not stand a chance because he only loves me. In other words, I am the only one no one else.

    Basically Crybaby is in love with the blue boy, but he is dating BB ( Basic Bitch), and BB only want sex with the blue boy and CryBaby just want him to love her because she loves him for him. at the end when Crybaby and the blue boy went to kiss, BB flashes him, and he chose BB, tbh hes a jerk.

    From my interpretation, the song is about the confrontation between two girls who are interested in a man, one of them is his partner and they have a relationship that seems normal at the beginning, but the other girl who is interested in the man arrives and tries to get his attention to leave his girlfriend, he behaves like any man who is interested in being with another woman without caring about his girlfriend's feelings, so she desperately tries to get her man to stay with her, showing her breasts, giving him to understand that she will satisfy his sexual needs, getting to stay with him. In conclusion, I think it's two girls wasting their time, fighting over a man who isn't worth it.

    This song is about pacifying an interest in a specific woman so that one can come to completion better during a hand job. It's very similar to the 38 special song hang on loosely and anyone who thinks that both of these songs are not about masterbation are total and utter idiots. End of story. To the man that said otherwise in 2011: YOU ARE WRONG AND I AM RIGHT.

    Crybaby wants to date blue boy, who is dating basic bitch, even though she has no love for him, and "pacify her, she's getting on my nerves, you don't love her" Is basic bitch crying and whining for her boyfriend to love her and not crybaby, and crybaby is telling her to shut up and is telling blue boy that he loves her, not basic bitch, and for him to leave basic bitch and stay with crybaby.

    Everyone's saying that crybabys in love with blue boy but in the crybaby storybook it says "Not out of love but just a game." Crybaby's trying to get him to escape is girlfriend and find something that loves him.

    I think in this song Melanie is expressing some sort of obsession with love and "boy". She wants to be the one he loves, not her and she's tired of having to witness this repeating pain of "boy" choosing "basic bitch" over Melanie. In some cases it can be a form of jealousy and having an obsessive mindset over this boy who she clearly wants.

    As you can see, the blue boy doesn't seem too interested with the Basic Bitch. It seems that crybaby has a desperate need to be with him and tried and tried to get him, but the BB showed her own body and it seems that the boy's ultimate goal was only for her body, which crybaby did not have.

    I think the song depicts a toxic desperation for love. It is shown at the beginning of the video that BB and Blue Boy are romantically involved with one another to some degree (the hand holding). Despite Crybaby's cognizance to this relationship, she actively pursues her own romantic interests towards Blue Boy even when she knows he isn't available, neither physically nor emotionally. Given the other songs on the "Crybaby" album, she doesn't come from a stable household where she has been given a healthy representation of what love should look like; hence her fruitless attempts at trying to get Blue Boy. The toxic outcome of Crybaby's love style isn't just shown through her own toxicity, but also through Blue Boy's when he starts leaving BB for Crybaby, and is only lured back to his initial lover when she reveals her breasts to him (a symbol of sexual offers). The overall theme of the song isn't about who's the homewrecker or who stole Blue Boy from who, but rather, it's about someone with a lack of love making desperate attempts to obtain love, even if it means trying to get it in toxic ways and/or even going after toxic people just for the reassurance of having what they think is "love."

    Tired blue boy was forced by basic bitch to hold her hand [not his choice) Melanie knew she was a slut so she asked him if he could play meaning sex with her this being ripped by bb makes her mad and she begins to rip toy heads of the bodies making bb uncomfortable finally removing hers bb leaves and blue boy and Melanie find the time to “play” and bb seeing this flashes her stuff tellin* him she wants sex and u know boys he gradually runs away with her

    I feel this song is about Crybaby being in some kind of love triangle. The blonde girl (or basic bitch) is with blue boy who is crybaby's crush at the moment. The blonde girl is always trying to separate the two because she knows that they like each other and blue boy actually likes crybaby and not her. The blonde girl is using her body to keep blue boy with her and blue boy is falling into that trap. Blue boy knows that he likes crybaby, but is going for the blonde girl because of her body. I also think blue boy is blind to his love for crybaby because he's more interested in the blonde girls body. This fact makes crybaby mad because she knows she can give him a real relationship. My theory is based around the lyrics-
    "Someone told me stay away from things that aren't yours. But was it yours if he wanted me so bad?"
    I'm really bad at explaining things but that's my interpretation of the song.

    so my interpretation was blue boy is annoyed with his girlfriend that the song calls basic bleep and ask crybaby to help him prank basic bleep by making her use a pacifyer so yeah.....

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    pacify her is about a girl that has deluded herself into thinking a boy she likes wants to be with her instead of his current girlfriend. she keeps trying to convince him that he loves her and not his gf, but he doesnt want to break up with her because he is content, hence the lines ”you don’t love her / stop lying with those words” and his act of choosing his gf over crybaby in the end. it is likely that he is not actually tired of her and its all in crybaby’s head.

    why everyone keep saying is the basic girl fault??? basic bitch slut, basic bitch steal, basic........etc. in the video and lyric is clearly basic bitch is the one who is in relationship with the blue boy. Not crybaby.

    Tired, blue boy walks my way
    Holding a girls hand
    (blue boy is holding basic bitch hand, they are couple!)
    That basic bitch leaves finally
    Now I can take her man
    (crybaby is the 3 person, and she is in love with Blue boy, she want steal basic bitch men)

    Someone told me stay away from things that aren't yours
    (crybaby friend, or someone she told this about, tell her to stop, basic bitch is blueboy girlfriend)
    But was he yours, if he wanted me so bad?
    (crybaby think blue boy love her, even blue boy have girlfriend, she don't care. and she think blue boy don't love basic bitch)

    Pacify her
    She's getting on my nerves You don't love her
    (basic bitch know something is going on between crybaby and blue boy, so basic bitch piss off of crybaby)
    Stop lying with those words
    (crybaby think blue boy should stop saying love her to basic bitch, because crybaby think blue boy love her, not basic bitch)

    I can't stand her whining
    Where's her binky now?
    And loving her seems tiring
    So boy, just love me, down, down, down
    (crybaby is angry and piss off of basic bitch, because she have blue boy as boyfriend. crybaby think basic bitch is control freak, blue boy should love her)

    close to the video blue boy is start to walk toward crybaby (they are cheating, on basic bitch, not the other way around people)
    than basic bitch saw this, and showing blue boy her boob (is like saying, basic bitch is saying yes to have sex with blue boy, before they never have sex)
    the blue boy saw basic bitch boob and walk away with her......
    and crybaby is crying, because blue boy don't want her anymore.

    well, is very clear, blue boy is not hers in the first place. otherwise at the beginning of the video should show crybaby and blue boy play together. but no, blue boy walk in with basic bitch meaning THEY are together!
    CRYbaby is the third person and want STEAL other girl man!
