Sippy Cup Lyrics
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

I think the message of this is very simple. No matter how something is presented, its nature remains the same. Blood will still stain even if it is washed away. If you make someoone depressed look presentable, it won't changed that they are depressed. If you put syrup in a sippy cup, it desn't change what it is.

The story behind this is when Crybaby's mother proves her suspicions about her husband cheating so she tracks down his mistress and kills both of them. Crybaby wakes up in the middle of the night and walks in to see the corpses, then her mother drugged her so she wouldn't remember what happened.
This song is about a person's unwillingness to accept one's own reality, even if you make it look like something else. Blood still stains on sheets, love is not asleep when the lights are off, kids still have depression no matter how they look, and syrup in a sippy cup is still syrup.

The song Sippy Cup is based on Cry Babys mother after finding her husband cheating, so she traps him and the woman and kills them. Harsh right? Then Cry Baby finds out but her mother puts her in bed and feeds her a so called syrup/drug. This way she won't remember.
(Ps. plz vote five stars thx)

No matter what illusion you may put up with, the reality never changes. No matter how much you try to hide it, it will eventually slip out.

The song meaning is no matter how much you try to cover up the truth the pain will still alwas be there.

I think it's about Crybaby's husband (After most of the songs in the album but before dollhouse) cheated on her with some other chick (If you watched the Mrs. Potato Head music video, you might recall that Crybaby's husband (he was the guy that bought her the plastic surgery B.T.W) Cheated on her with a specific girl. This girl looked like old Crybaby. So this girl (we will call her Amy) made love with Crybaby's husband so, when Amy had her baby, Crybaby killed the baby and Amy. The Husband was broken hearted and kept the child's corpse in a cradle. "Of course it's a corpse that you keep in the cradle." So now, the 2 children crybaby had are depressed because their mom and dad are always fighting, and that's a lot of pressure on a child. Crybaby's husband have been in debt, so they money somehow right? That means that they would do anything for money. So, now Crybaby's husband (I'm naming him Sam) started working at a drug company that he bought drugs from (which was spending their money, making them in debt) "Just another shift at the drug company" So, That's a song over analyzed for yall

So clearly anyway you present something its not different from they way it truly is. Like if you wash a sheet that had blood on it still shows just not clearly. If you put nice clothes on kids it still doesn't matter if they are depressed and sad and syrup is not any different in a sippy cup.

This is really hard to tell because there can be so many different things. What I think is that someone is having a really big struggle in their life, they are an alcoholic, doing drugs ("if they give you a new pill then you will buy it"), struggling with an eating disorder ("you got weights in your pockets when you go to the doctor"), and just a bunch of other horrible things.

Crybaby's mom is a huge alcoholic which causes her to act over the top. The father thinks that Crybaby's mom doesn't know so he thinks he'll get over things. Crybaby's mom still doesn't know but she had to much alcohol, and she killed him and her mistress. Crybaby's brother is still sleeping but Crybaby knows something is wrong. Crybaby knows what happened and the mother poisoned her. So the meaning is similar to Dollhouse, so Crybaby's family puts the mask on for the public eye but people just think them as Angels straight from heaven. But Crybaby's mom gets out of her comfort zone so their going over the top.

I think this song is about someone covering a intense situation up (well at least trying to) and give the child a "mixture" refered to as syrup in a sippy cup so the kid won't snitch.

second part to dollhouse. it is 'what goes down in the kitchen'. cry babys mom finds her husband cheating in which she kills them both and trys to hide it from crybaby "blood still stains when the sheets are washed" although she find out leaving her mother to drug cry baby to forget about what she has seen.no hate <3

I think this song means that people try to see things differently when they know they are doing something wrong. "Syrup is still syrup in a Sippycup" refers to that you can't pretend that your doing something good when you know you are doing something wrong. In this song, they go through a series of lines comparing things like, "kids are still depressed when you dress them up" as in, you can't pretend things are all okay when they're not.

I think the parents where acholics and omne night the mom got drunk and started too kill her children Melanie comes in and sees the dead bodies and instead of killling her the Mom drugs her up so she forgets and is fake for the rest of her life because the drugs didn't do the job and she's afraid of her mom
That's a pretty dumb interpretation but the best I could do

I think this song is about the girls and boys messing around with each other but it gets intense. But the line "syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup" means that the mom put a drug that is liquid and gave it to cry baby because cry baby wont remember what happened that night and kids didnt want to be friends with cry baby because of the sippy cup.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

I think the meaning is Little girls and teens wanting to look more pretty. So they get surgery to make them pretty. Like how it says "syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup" It's saying be yourself. Syrup is still the same if you put it in the container. It stays itself. Being fake is changing who you are!!

I think the song is about how everyone being fake and trying to hide and cover everything bad up. Like how it says that "Blood still stains when the sheets are washed" and "You call that A*** your own, we call that silicone." Means that people are trying to be fake, That's my terrible interpretation.
