Sippy Cup Lyrics

[Chorus]
Blood still stains when the sheets are washed
Sex don't sleep when the lights are off
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

He's still dead when you're done with the bottle
...

    “blood still stains when the sheets are washed”-no matter how hard you ignore something it's still going to there even when you ignore it

    “sex don't sleep when the lights are off”-even though your sleeping doesn't mean ur partner is.

    “pill diet, pill diet, if they give you a new pill then you will try it, it they say to kill your self then you will try it”-the vulnerability of hopping on the band wagon and believing if you were to do these things and change your self for another person, basically like the saying 'if he jumped off a cliff, would you do it' and how everyone doesn't do anything for themselves it's always for someone else.

    “kids are still depressed when you dress them up and syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup”-no matter what you dress it in it won't change what it is and remains the same it's the 'same problem, different day'

    This is basically telling us "...what goes down in the kitchen..." Cry Baby's mother finds out about her husband cheating, and in a drunken state kills her husband and his mistress. When she finds out that Cry Baby saw what happened, she drugs her. It's also about how trying to hide things doesn't change what it is.

    I think its a continuation of Crybaby and doll house based on the mother of the girl whom is crybaby. How the mother is an alcoholic and has to deal with many problems. She finds out her husband is doing illegal stuff and then soon finds out he is having an affair like how they show in dollhouse. How she has to deal with her 2 children which one is quote a crybaby and the other is a pot head and an absent husband whom is also cheating, and her own problems on top of it. Then she breaks down killing him. And regrets what she had done knowing that she still loves him. Like the lyrics in the song " He's still dead when your done with the bottle" pretty much saying she's getting drunk to forget that she killed her husband. The song is saying that even things are presented a different way their still the same. Kinda like in dollhouse where they are a perfect family on the outside and the inside its not what it seems. Where she is presenting herself or other things to seem a certain way when they aren't.

    I know this song is a continuation of Crybaby's story after Dollhouse, but there's more meaning to it than just that. The main chorus tells us that no matter how much you try to believe and say that just doing a little something will change it entirely, it's still the same whether you like it or not. In verse 1, it states: "Blood money, blood money. How did you afford this ring that I love, honey? "Just another shift at the drug company," He doesn't think I'm that fucking dumb does he?" This tells us that the mom (as interpreted in the album and story), used the inheritance money to buy herself a nice (and probably pricey or expensive) ring she saw. The inheritance money came from her husband after she murdered him. We can tell that he was cheating on her too just with the next two lines. We can infer that he was sexist and thought she would be too dumb to figure out anything about the affair because she's a woman. The next few lines in this verse tells us about how the mother had returned home early, to which she finds her husband cheating and having an affair. He explains to her all the things she doesn't have compared to his new lover, one of which being her ass. The mother proceeds to tell him that her ass is only the way it is because of plastic surgery, hence "You call that ass your own, we call that silicone." The next verse is "Pill diet, pill diet, if they give you a new pill then you will buy it. If they say to kill yourself, then you will try it. All the makeup in the world, won't make you less insecure. You got weights in your pockets, when you go to the doctors. Your favorite candy's cotton, that's why all your teeth are rotten." The first three lines in the second verse tell us about peer pressure and what it can do and how badly it can affect people. The next lines tells us about how girls will put on makeup to make them feel less insecure, but it doesn't. The last few lines refer to the Cotton Ball Diet, which would cause some people to have rotten teeth.

    Honestly I think this song is representing trying to push someone or something away. Some thing you think is causing you pain or anxiety.

    About child abuse/neglect with crybaby “blood still stains when the sheets are washed” trying get rid of something. “Sex don’t sleep when the lights are off” either crybaby’s dad cheating on her mom or sexual abuse. “Kids are still depressed when you dress them up.” Showing how crybaby has a bad life or her mom/family pretending everything is alright. “Syrup is still syrup in a soppy cup.” Nothing changing. And then in the video it seems crybaby’s mom murders crybaby’s father who is cheating on her with a “slut”(dollhouse) and then it seems with the video and the lyrics crybaby is drugged. Thank you for reading.

    i think maybe it might be about crybaby's brother or relative dead in some sort of way (idk yet) but i think this because it says "Of course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle" so maybe its because that sibling died. this is my best guess but i really dont know

    Like others, I believe this has something to do with the family in the "Dollhouse" music video.
    "Blood still stains when the sheets are washed"- I think it's referring to no matter how much you try to get rid of something, it's still going to be there- or the mother killed the father.
    "Sex don't sleep when the lights are off"- I think it's referring to the father, and how he's cheating on the wife.
    "Kids are still depressed when you dress them up"- This is referring to Crybaby, and I'm guessing she's depressed from having such a shitty life, and how she's dressing up (Or her mother is) to make it seem like she's perfectly happy.
    "Syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup"- this is either referring to how nothing changes no matter how much you pretend it had, or the mother drugging the child.
    "He's still dead when you're done with the bottle"- the mother killed the father learning about his affair, and is drinking so she can pretend everything is fine and lovely.
    "Of course it's a corpse that you're keeping in the cradle"- either the mother killed her baby (she may have had another child as crybaby and her brother don't seem like babies) or she didn't take care of it and it died, so she's pretending it's still alive.

    This is just a guess but the line "syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup" could refer to the mum trying to hide her alcahol addiction. If you read Melanie martinez's book the page for sippy cup says "she took a drink from a sippy cup that's pink because of that you'd never think that she'd pass out under the sink"

    also the line "kids are still depressed when you dress them up" could refer to the fact that some people think that if you have designer clothes and look good your life will be perfect but it won't this idea is also mentioned in another song called orange juice in the line"everyone wants what the other one's working."
    Also the line"your favourite candy's cotton that's why your teeth are Rotten" could refer to an eating disorder called cotton ball diet or bullimia this is also referred to in orange juice in the line "for another round of bulimia"

    This is all a complete guess and not a very good one tbh

    Crybaby's mom kills Crybaby's dad because he cheated on her and Crybaby is in fear of what will happen to her. (This is just my theory)

    Crybaby's dad was cheating on her mom so her mom kills her dad and his mistress. Crybaby sees it happen and her mom try's to kill her by drugging her sippy cup. "Drugs diet drugs diet" her mom only allows her to eat drugs.

    You all might be thinking too deep into this. It means how small actions can't fix what has happened. "Blood still stains when the sheets are washed." You can't cover what has happened. It doesn't fix anything. "He's still dead when you're done with the bottle."

    This is the first time I've heard of this song or her but What you guys are missing is this part

    "syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup
    He's still dead when you're done with the bottle
    Of course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle"

    This is talking about killing her baby and keeping the babies corpse in the crib still these lyrics describe infant murder drugging the child and that the child's still dead when she's done with the bottle it could mean an alcoholic bottle or in her psychosis she is still using a bottle to feed her babies corpse that she keeps in the crib

    Sippy cup is like a deeper look into crybaby's family life which was mentioned in the song Dollhouse with the lyric (one day they'll see what goes down in the kitchen). In the first scene we see her mom passed out under the sink when her husband comes back drunk with another woman. Her mom then ties them both in chairs and killed them. Crybaby finds the bodies and her mom drugs
    One time during her tour she answered a question the fans were asking whether cry baby died at the end of the music video she said No Cry Baby didn't die her mom just drugged her to make her go to sleep to forget what she saw

    (Sorry I know I’m basically repeating everyone else)

    Sippy cup is what “goes down in the kitchen”
    Crybaby’s mom is heavily drunk and finds her husband with the sl*t from dollhouse.
    (“Mom please wake up, Dad’s with a sl*t”)

    Super drugged and hungover, she murders the dad and his mistress.
    Crybaby finds the bodies, and her mom drugs her so that she never knew what happened.

    The metaphor “blood still stains when the sheets are washed” is about how just because you try and fix something doesn’t mean the problem is gone. The sheets will forever have history of the blood even after you wash them.

    The metaphor “syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup” means that you can’t cover up something by making it seem innocent; you can’t feed a baby straight syrup, but if you put it in a sippy cup then it’s fine

    Sippy Cup is 'what goes down in the kitchen', a lyric from Dollhouse. It talks about Crybaby's mother's problems. She is very insecure about her looks (All the make-up in the world won't make you less insecure) and weight (You've got weights in your pockets, when you go to the doctors). She tries to keep her kids happy and is angry at her husband for cheating (he doesn't think I'm that f***ing dumb does he). The husband comes home with another woman, and the mom, in a drunken rage, stabs them both. Crybaby is horrified when she sees their bodies so her mother forces a liquid drug in a sippy cup down her throat to make her forget everything.
