Dollhouse- Melanie Martinez
Conclusion?
I guess this is the end! I hope you liked the song and found SOME sense in my connection. Golly, its hard to put in words...
But yeah, random fact:
I saw Melanie in concert last October, and oh my god she talked to me!!!
It was one of the best days ever tbh and I love her. Anyway,
Personal Connection~
Growing up, I've learned that things aren't always what it seems. I admit, I am quick to judge. I see a happy person, always smiling, always laughing, carefree and all, but when you really get to know them, you learn a thing or two. Not going into detail, but I have too many times in my life assumed people's lives. Never had I thought that -So&So- never had a dad? Never would I assume -So&So- is clinically depressed and bulimic! But little did I know of all these things. Point is, I love how this song is so blunt. Yeah, things happen, you can't live under your ignorant shell forever, sweetheart. You can't just look at a book's cover and write a 10 page essay about it.. I guess I don't know what I'm saying, but I feel for this song really hard. Its a great song.
Meaning~
I think this song is about how people everywhere are messed up and know one can know. The seemingly picture-perfect role model family has no worries at all, and are all lovey and close, right? Wrong. No one really knows what's happening in this dollhouse family. No one CAN know, or it'll ruin them! Melanie's tune is dark as she sings about a "beautiful" family that is much more troubled under the surface.
Lyrics~

Chorus (obvi)
Hey girl, open the walls
Play with your dolls
We'll be a perfect family
When you walk away
Is when we really play
You don't hear me when I say
Mom, please wake up
Dad's with a slut
And your son is smoking cannabis
No one ever listens
This wallpaper glistens
Don't let them see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places
Get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains


D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees


Hey girl, look at my mom
She's got it going on
Ha, you're blinded by her jewelry
When you turn your back
She pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity
Uh oh she's coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic
No one ever listens
This wallpaper glistens
One day they'll see what goes down in the kitchen

Places, places
Get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains
Hey girl
Hey girl, open your walls
Play with your dolls
We'll be a perfect family
Places, places
Get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains
