Mili – Bathtub Mermaid

By Grover Koelpin 100 comments


Bathtub Mermaid Rise and fall Silver moon tide erased my foot prints Then I picked up broken scales Stuck them to my tail Ah If love truly makes you blind Then I guess There is no need There is no need to see I’ll trade my eyes So you can see for me Lulala Lulalila Stay with me You will never be sad I I will embrace Embrace your bubbles your fluids And keep you warm Then I will squeeze out Squeeze out your germs your spore your viruses I I will embrace Embrace your membranes your bones And keep you cool Then I will squeeze out Squeeze out your evil your grim and your woe Transform myself Once and for all Sink into the tub Reborn Reform Twist my legs to one and mind to none Tell me tell me What do you see In the mirror that’s covered in chalky steam Touch me touch me Kiss me to sleep Cut me open and give me gills So I can breathe With tweezers and nippers Trim off my fins And forever I’ll be yours I won’t fight or make you cry Whatever you need Whenever you need I’ll be by your side And then I gave you my eyes To see all the colours And then I gave you my ears To hear all the sirens And then I gave you my heart To fill in the emptiness in your chest And then I gave you my brain So that you can learn to love Tell me tell me What do you see In the water that’s clinging onto my skin Cut me cut me Please make it deep If I’m covered in scars Will you look at me Kiss me kiss me Don’t leave me be I’m a bathtub mermaid I cannot swim but only sing Just pull the plug Flush down all our memories Into the sea

個人覺得整首描述為了某個已經不再愛自己的人,用盡自己的一切只為了對方的一點注意,把自己搞得遍體麟傷、所剩無幾,最後導致惡行循環(產生空虛→無法填滿→想得到注意→奉獻→得到注意→彌補空虛→自己缺乏更多→又感到空虛→無法填滿→想再次得到注意→做出更多貢獻)。故事跟「少年小樹之歌」單一的貢獻有點像,但是這首歌結局並不溫馨。

This is what I interrupted- it’s really late. But I only found this one about an hour ago. And this is all just speculation. Sorry for spelling error- point any out and I’ll fix them. I was in a bit of a rush.

Okay so- I don’t think I can cover the entire song without writing a practical novel. But lemme just highlight what I think are the most important parts. The first red flag is “If love makes you blind, then I guess there is no need, no need, to see, I’ll trade my eyes, so you can see for me”. Here you can kinda pass this off as dark imagery.

“Twist my legs to one and my mind to none, tell me, tell me, what do you see, In the mirror that’s covered on chalky steam, touch me, touch me, kiss me to sleep, cut me open and give me gills, so I can breathe” She’s talking about twisting her legs here- I’m assuming she’s talking about breaking them or something of the sort (it’s seems extreme but it’ll make sense in the context of the rest of the song). And then at the end she talks about someone cutting her open so she can ‘breathe’. I think this is a metaphor for just flat out cutting yourself. It can feel like you can’t breathe- and in order to feel like you can again, you have to cut yourself open. Which sounds really bizarre. But it’s like your skin is choking you, squeezing you- and you only have one choice for escape. Cutting is like exhaling, breathing. Which again- sounds bizarre. There is also some lovey dovey stuff. But we’ll get back to that later.

“With tweezers and nippers, Trim off my fins” again- here it’s talking about items for self harm. I think. (It’s all based on opinion)- but practically anything can be used to hurt yourself. Nail clippers, pencil sharpers, tweezers.

“And then I gave you my eyes
To see all the colours
And then I gave you my ears
To hear all the sirens
And then I gave you my heart
To fill in the emptiness in your chest
And then I gave you my brain
So that you can learn to love” Here- she’s again talking about hurting herself in some way. That being metaphorically cutting out her heart etc. Shes “Sacrificing” things for her love I guess you could say.

“Cut me cut me
Please make it deep
If I’m covered in scars
Will you look at me”
This is just what confirmed my beliefs. And is my favorite part of the song. She’s literally just asking whoever she’s singing to to cut her. The line that sticks out to me is “If I’m covered in scars, Will you look at me?”. This is because, some people start self harm because they want someone to notice them, to get some kind of attention, so they can feel like someone cares about them or someone knows they exist.

So here she’s asking that if she’s hurting- scarred- will her love notice her then? Once she’s physically hurting?

“I’m a bathtub mermaid
I cannot swim but only sing
Just pull the plug
Flush down all our memories
Into the sea”
So here she says she’s a “bathtub mermaid”. That seems kinda random- but wait. She also says she can’t swim but only sing, and then asks whoever she’s singing to to pull the plug and get rid of all their memories of them being together. I think this whole song is leading her up to the singer killing them-self. The significance of them being in a bathtub can be lost. You see- in the media at least- cutting yourself and bleeding out in a bathtub is a popular portrayal of suicide. This actually doesn’t happen very often in real life. (This method of suicide). And it usually isn’t successful. But I have to admit- it is dramatic.

So the entire song she’s asking someone to cut her open- mutilate her- so she can bleed out in her bathtub. She says she can’t swim, only sing. This means that she can’t save herself (by “swimming”)- only tell you how she feels and the truth in her final moments/suicide letter. Hence her only being able to sing.

And lastly she says to pull the plug on the whole thing and to forget her. Because now that’s she’s dead and gone- she dosent want whoever she is singing to hurt because of it. And she thinks Itd be better if they just forgot about her. So they won’t hurt.

About the whole love thing- I think they’re saying threw out the entire song to please notice her, and she tries to make them (by hurting herself) but in the end she just decides to finish herself off. Because until she dies no one will care. Not even if she’s hurting. Maybe they won’t even care when she dies- who knows.

I find myself drawn to these sorts of songs- because they’re able to express and convey emotions i cant explain. They also have them (sometimes) hidden. Which I like- because it makes me feel like I’m able to understand someone when others aren’t. Because we can relate in some ways.

So the song gets progressively darker as it goes along. The cheery and dreamy sounding melody and the pastel background also symbolizes how these things can be hidden in anywhere- and you need to look closer and read into things.

The art is also beautiful. The color palette is so soft and pastel-y. But then you notice her gorged our eye, the person drowning under her, her cut out heart and brain, her legs being twisted and broken to form a “tail”. The art is also what made love the song so much too.

The song is quite similar to the movie I watched long ago. The story is about a man w/ his wife who text while driving, cause an accident leaving so many deaths and he's the only person survived. Consumed by guilt, he donate his organs. At the end of the movie, there's someone who need a heart and eyes so he commits suicide by dunking himself into a ice cold water with a deadly jellyfish in a bathtub, leaving a note to donate all his organs.The movie title is Seven Pounds.Just look at the bathtub, it looks like a jellyfish, the one who take his life away.

I want so use this song as a lullaby but i haven't have much success…
Maybe that's because i am unable to kno what love is.
But i like the vocals, lyrics and piano notes dancing waltz.
Maybe i will die virgin but that doesn't concern me, maybe i shoud. Hhmm. I'm too old to bother with anything, i just live to suffer and i can't even feel pain anymore.

At first i thought the song is about a girl who would sacrifice her organs for the person she love but i guess it was a much more simpler explanation…So a girl loved this guy to the point she would do plastic surgery (opo) but the guy doesn't show any love back so it was no use in the end…so the only way to do is to forget the past…crei

If I loved every Mili album as much as I do Miracle Milk they'd be possibly my all time favorite band or at the very least one of them; as it is I still really love them but only like a few off of Mag Mel and a few off of Millennium Mother, and basically all of Miracle Milk. Still that's a better enjoyment ratio than I have for most bands. As long as they keep making music I'll keep checking it out and will hope for another one I love as much or more than this one.

This song is so dark. It kinda describes the moments when a girl doesn't love me, so I would sacrifice my life and donate my brain so she can learn to love me, my ears to hear the beautiful music I currently hear (but not anymore when I give her my ears), and my eyes to see a more colorful and brighter world and not being in a dark world full of dark clothes and items and etc (like all 14-year-old or older teenage girls these days which mostly are in a black world wearing black clothes and have black items in their world. my sister is 9 years old and she lives in a very colorful & happy world without any black stuff in general!…..) 😭😢😖😣 bc only girls that are 14-24 Y/O live in a darkened and miserable world!!!!
Anyways, I love to spread long shit. The 3/4 waltz rhtyhm makes this song even more romantic

これって、もしかして臓器移植(transplant)と、そのドナー(organ donor)の視点で語られた歌なのかな。
自分の臓器(いのち)と相手の侵された臓器(いのち)を交換して生まれ変わる、って意味なのかも。
ピンセットやトゲ抜きが手術器具で、冒頭と最後の方は手術中のドナーの心情という気がする。
そして、イラストの全体像を見ると、バスタブが移植先の相手の身体で、そのバスタブ(からだ)の中で相手と共に生き続ける、って感じだと思う。
歌の終わりに近付くにつれて、ドナーである彼女が最後を迎える瞬間への覚悟が感じられて、切ないながらも命に関する強い想いと愛が伝わってきました。

this song is barely a love song. quite the contrary, actually
its about a girl who changes herself, gives everything, and in return gets nothing from the man that she loves. she desperately wants him to love her back. he doesn't care about her at all and it's usually implied both heavily and vaguely at times
"and then I gave you my heart, to fill in the emptiness in your chest. and then I gave you my brain, so you could learn to love" (implying he doesn't love her, or is just an emotionless husk of a person altogether)
"transform myself, once and for all" "reborn, reform" (implying she wants to change herself so that the man will love her)
"if im covered in scars, will you look at me?" (implying he doesn't pay attention to her or shuns her for her appearance and/or her personality or obsession with him altogether)
she convinces herself that being with him is going to be possible, and that he will love her too. she goes to such extents that assures her that it means he HAS to love her after everything she does for him.
it's a very sad and dark song if you go in depth. the man is horrible to her, but she wants love and attention; she has chosen him to be the one that provides said love and attention, going beyond her limits just so she can feel appreciated and acknowledged. she pledges herself to him to insistently. so desperately. she's lost all train of thought and lacks common sense, being literally BLINDED by this love she has invented.

shit's fucked, yo!

(tw for abuse, manipulation, murder, and mutilation)
So I typically don't comment on videos a lot BUT I really like this song and have had this analysis in my head since the first time I listened to it (being in a past abusive/toxic relationship myself) SO!!! I'M GONNA POST IT!!! IT'S GONNA BE SUPER LONG BUT HERE GOES!!!

"Rise and fall

Silver moon tide erased my footprints

Then I picked up broken scales

Stuck them to my tail"

She is leaving behind her humanity/true self (erased my footprints) and choosing to live her life as a "mermaid" (picked up broken scales, stuck them to my tail), which is a metaphor for something her abuser likes / wants. She is willing to change, be it physically or personality-wise, for them.

"If love truly makes you blind

Then I guess

There is no need (There is no need to see)

I'll trade my eyes

So you can see for me"

This statement speaks for itself; she is blinded by love. In this case, she thinks that her abuser knows what is best for her, so she "trades her eyes" to them so they can "see for her" and essentially control everything she does.

"I will embrace

Embrace your bubbles, your fluids

And keep you warm



I will embrace

Embrace your membranes, your bones

And keep you cool"

The speaker loves her abuser and is willing to accept them and all of their baggage. She will "embrace" all of their bad parts, but will try to see past them in favor of their good.

"Then

I will squeeze out

Squeeze out your germs, your spore, your viruses



Then

I will squeeze out

Squeeze out your evil, your grim and your woe"

I see this part as a metaphor for "squeezing out" all of the bad in her abuser. She's experiencing a form of Florence Nightingale/Nursemaid syndrome; she thinks she can change them and make them better than how they used to be. Regardless of how much "evil" she "squeezes out", her abuser is never going to change.

"Reborn, Reform

Twist my legs to one and mind to none"

She is undergoing her "transformation" from who she used to be into the "mermaid" I discussed earlier. The "twist my legs to one" isn't literal in this case, rather making it sound more like she's turning into an actual mermaid. But her mind being "twisted to none" is VERY literal. She loves her abuser so much that she is literally ignoring all common sense; any sense of danger or toxicity in this person she is ignoring. She's "blinded" by her love for them.

"Touch me touch me

Kiss me to sleep

Cut me open and give me gills

So I can breathe"

The stark contrast between the softness of "touch me…kiss me to sleep" and the raw gore of "cut me open" is important. She's living in a fantasy where she sees her abuser as soft, gentle, and loving no matter what. Even if they "cut [her] open", literal or not, she sees it as a way for her to "breathe".

"With tweezers and nippers

Trim off my fins

And forever I'll be yours

I won't fight or make you cry"

She's allowing her abuser to "trim off her fins", which is similar to the metaphor "clipping my wings". It means that her abuser now has full control over her and where she goes. She won't fight them on this, either. She may just see it as her abuser being "protective" and "wanting what is best for her", but instead it's a manipulative way to keep her in line.

*Now there are TWO ways I interpreted the ending to this song
*

A) Her abuser now gets physical and beats her, but she stays regardless.

B) Her abuser kills her and throws her in the bathtub.


PRETTY STARK DIFFERENCES THERE so I'm gonna be splitting the rest of this analysis up into two endings.

END A



"Whatever you need

Whenever you need

I'll be by your side"

Despite all of the hurt she's gone through, despite everything she's already given up, she is still willing to stick by her abuser because she loves them. She'll keep giving and giving, but her abuser will never give anything in return.

"And then I gave you my heart

To fill in the emptiness in your chest

And then I gave you my brain

So that you can learn to love"

She's hopeful that by her being there, her abuser's "chest can be filled" and that they can "learn to love" and change from their abusive ways, like what she's wanted all along.

"If I'm covered in scars

will you look at me"

If she's covered in the "scars" from giving everything she had to her abuser, she hopes that her abuser will be grateful and change for the better.

"Kiss me kiss me

Don't leave me be

I'm a bathtub mermaid

I cannot swim but only sing"

Our speaker is afraid of abandonment. She's been clinging onto her abuser because she is afraid of being left alone; she would rather have somebody that treats her horribly than nobody at all. She "cannot swim", meaning that she can't do anything her abuser doesn't allow her to do (see back to "trim off my fins"), but she can still "sing". She can entertain her abuser, keeping them company and giving them someone to manipulate.

END B



"And then I gave you my eyes

To see all the colours

And then I gave you my ears

To hear all the sirens"

The speaker has given everything she had to her abuser, and in the end, she was manipulated and they ended up killing her. With her "eyes", they can see all of her blood. With her "ears", they hear the police sirens approaching; someone else has heard the attack and has called the police, or the abuser has called themselves.

"Tell me, tell me

What do you see

In the water that's clinging onto my skin

Cut me cut me

Please make it deep"

The abuser has thrown the speaker's body into the bathtub, perhaps staging it to look like a suicide by slitting her wrists.

"Just pull the plug

Flush down all our memories

Into the sea"

I believe the "just pull the plug" line is a sort of pseudo-metaphor for death. In a hospital, if somebody is on life support and asks you to "pull the plug", they know that that plug being pulled will kill them. (Probably not EXACTLY what Mili was going for but that's what I pulled from it.) The "pull the plug" line ALSO works as a metaphor for the end of a relationship. The abuser, now faced with the death of their victim, is forced to "pull the plug" on their toxic relationship and watch as all of their memories with their victim are "flushed into the sea".

WHEW okay so that was super long and I stayed up until 6 AM writing this SO I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY READING THIS because my back hurts now hghhghgh

Rise and fall
Silver moon tide erased my foot prints
Then I picked up broken scales
Stuck them to my tail

Ah
If love truly makes you blind
Then I guess
There is no need (There is no need to see)
I'll trade my eyes
So you can see for me

Lulala Lulalila
Stay with me
You will never be sad
I
I will embrace
Embrace your bubbles, your fluids
And keep you warm
Then
I will squeeze out
Squeeze out your germs, your spore, your viruses
I
I will embrace
Embrace your membranes, your bones
And keep you cool
Then
I will squeeze out
Squeeze out your evil, your grim and your woe
Trasform myself
Once and for all
Sink into the tub

Reborn
Reform
Twist my legs to one and mind to none
Tell me tell me
What do you see
In the mirror that's covered in chalky steam
Touch me touch me
Kiss me to sleep
Cut me open and give me gills
So I can breathe

With tweezers and nippers
Trim off my fins
And forever I'll be yours
I won't fight or make you cry
Whatever you need
Whenever you need
I'll be by your side
And then I gave you my eyes
To see all the colours
And then I gave you my ears
To hear all the sirens
And then I gave you my heart
To fill in the emptiness in your chest
And then I gave you my brain
So that you can learn to love

Tell me tell me
What do you see
In the water that's clinging onto my skin
Cut me cut me
Please make it deep
If I'm covered in scars
Will you look at me
Kiss me kiss me
Don't leave me be
I'm a bathtub mermaid
I cannot swim but only sing
Just pull the plug
Flush down all your memories
Into the sea

Here's my interpretation for this song: The Bathtub Mermaid was so in love with "that person" and would change herself for "that person", the reason she needed to change is because she wanted "that person" to love her back not as herself but as the being "that person" expected her to be. In the end, she realised it was pointless (because she was never the girl "that person" had been dreaming of) and she ended up forgetting everything she did.

神曲すぎるって・・・今までずっとMarigoldを超える音楽はないって確信していたけど、これはちょっと次元が違うような・・・
それともこの曲を初めて聞いたからかな?まあ、でもやっぱりM2Uさんの曲も、xiさんの曲も、iceさんの曲も、morimoriatushiさんの曲もどれも好きだわ・・・この曲を通してMiliさんの曲ももっと知りたくなったわ・・・ 
 二年後自分が音大入ったらこういうDTMを絶対に倣って作りたい。

To me it seems this is connected to extention of you. After the mermaid destroys itself giving part to whatever is in extention of you the thing after reciveving all the part and finnially becoming what it thought was human realizes what happens and after learning about death and loss it finnally becomes human
