Analyzing the Lyrics of “Fed Up” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”

Remember, this is only my opinions and even if stated in an accurate way is not meant more then as my opinion.

Hello, everyone! I apologize that his piece has been a little slow in the last couple of week. If I can, I am going to try to do the rest of the songs fairly quickly soon. I have quite a few articles I need to write and will be working on catching up, so bear with me!

Happy for now to get this one out to you. So let us listen to and see if we cannot understand the song “Fed Up” by Recap better!

(Chorus)
I’m sick of waitin’ on this world to change
Guess I’ll pack up
My bags I’m leavin’ on a space plane
Guess I’m fed up
Guess I’m fed up

So the chorus of this song is a summary of the general theme of the song. Overall a turning of your back on the world and other people sort of thing. I do not want to go into the full theme here, though, as it is better to understand it from the lyrics, so read on.

Earth

(Verse 1)
(Sigh) Earth what the hell’s the matter with you Can’t ya see that your status as a civilized planet Is shatterin’ can you see the pattern yet

Our aliens are talking to us, asking us why aren’t we logically looking at our choices and decisions, what they are causing to happen, and making a change. I saw a Meme recently that said something along the lines of Those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and those that do will get to watch it repeated because no one else will. Something along those lines. Very apt to this verse!

Blood in syringes

Think you’ve come far but the blood’s still splatterin’ All over the world people die with teeth chatterin’ From the cold while these brats badgerin’

In general, I believe that as a species we feel we have accomplished a lot. We have! Computers, Nano Technology, Space travel, take your pick. Yet, with all of our accomplishments in many areas, we haven’t grown nearly as much regarding how we care for each other, and life on the planet. As a whole, we have remained a very selfish species. We have improved, but we still have a long way to go as there is a lot of NEEDLESS suffering in this world.

Fuckin’ dad for an ipad again and again

Not only being materialistic but needlessly so.

Y’all evolve slower than a mothafuckin’ mannekin

We know and have known for a long time know about all kinds of issues, concerns, problems, whatever you want to call them, that exist in this world. Some of these things are not easy to resolve, but some are. They continue to be issues. It’s insanity to want everyone to be the same, yet that has been the “social” acceptable norm for much of history.

Why does it always have to end this way
With me dismayed over all the horror every which way

Every time you feel like maybe we are progressing, things are changing. Something happens that makes you wonder how far we have progressed. No matter how hard you try and work, sometimes it feels like we continue to do and repeat the same mistakes. It sometimes feels like two steps back and one forward rather than two forward and one back.

If I were to bet I’d be takin’ the odds
You keep killin’ each other over fuckin’ paper and God

No matter how good it starts to look, it is starting to feel like it will just go wrong every time. Something will cause it. Money, religion, maybe politics or something else. Regardless when you look at the future it begins to feel like that is the history we are doomed to just keep repeating.

So let’s be realistic there ain’t a way to fix it
And if I stay here I’ma end up with my wrists slit
So make a quick list couple wings and a stick shift
Shootin’ for the stars guess we gonna need a ship kids

The metaphor on requiring a ship to leave is that people just find escapes rather than try to deal with things. Whatever your escape may be, music, books, games. That doesn’t mean those things are always an escape, but sometimes they can be. When they are used in a way to just hide and get away from the real world, is the metaphor being spoken of here.

(Verse 2)
That’s it I’m gettin’ off of this bitch yo
Earth is just a shitshow of schizo sickos
At each other’s throats like pit bulls it’s so Obvious they need help but fuck this yo Phase 1 I went and bought an RV
But it hardly would start we needed parts see Couldn’t fall asleep all week and 3 days Searchin’ for flux capacitators on ebay Scourin’ all of the yard sales
Gettin parts mailed to my house hey are there
Any packages from Carbondale with new hardware
I don’t need a bumper when there ain’t no poles or guard rails
Up there where we goin’ we ain’t gonna slow for no one
We don’t need no chauffeur bro when I can drive on my own and solo Hopin’ that the heat ain’t broken oh you know we coulda used Cloaking for the cops oh well guess it’ll have to do

This is all just a great fun metaphor extending on the previous one, for flavor and enjoyment. Except that there is also an underlying reference of building a ship and going to a planet is all a metaphor for withdrawing, however, it is you do it. Into your safe place and own sanctuaries.

In some cases, it can also be a preparation for suicide as a way to not have to deal with the world anymore.

(Chorus 2x) (Outro)
I’m up all night daydreamin’
Every time I close my eyes I see the way gleamin’ (Guess I’m fed up)
Goodbye to pain and sorrow
I can’t wait anymore I leave tomorrow
(Guess I’m fed up)
I’m up all night daydreamin’
Every time I close my eyes I see the way gleamin’ (Guess I’m fed up)
Goodbye to pain and sorrow
I can’t wait anymore I leave tomorrow
(Guess I’m fed up)

We leave out with the chorus again, and move onto the next song!
