Jack Stauber – Baby Hotline lyrics
Baby Hotline
Please hold me close to you
Baby flatline
Still time to do it too
Baby snack time
Chow down to earth but in your head

She's a hoarder of quarters
And no boundary boredom
No boundary boredom

I can tell that your drinking eye
Has never opened
I insist somebody will die
And I hate moping
Wishing that the pills let you cry
And I hate hoping
Someday I will go back outside
And see her ok

    Maybe it’s like the song “the riddle anthem” there is no actual meaning to the words.. the song is just there for you to make up a meaning? Besides, idk if the creator of the song will say it’s true meaning or not.. hopefully they do if the song has an actual meaning so we’re not left in confusion..

    I always thought the song explained the death of a spouse after birth and the child survives and left for him to take care of said child and baby hotline is kinda like any other hotline but maybe for single parents that have no clue what to do or how to raise a child the line "hold me close to you" stands for most likely expresses what the man felt as he watched her leave so suddenly just having every urge in his body to hold her close hoping for it to not be true. The line baby flatline would stand for the flatline on the beep beep machine (I forget the name) and when she died. The line "still time to do it too" might stand for abortion or try again and start fresh (as in an illution like he still has time) if it is abortion he couldve not wanted the child from the beginning almost scared about parenting (yes this is a thing look it up if you must) the line "baby snack time" could stand for before the child was born (going farther into his delusions still seeing her there despite her being gone) as in it's time for a snack and hes reminding her its snack time. Now the line "chow down to earth but in your head" goes into his hallucinations deeper as if imagining he is on a date with her. "Shes a hoarder of quarters and no boundary boredom no boundary boredom" now bare with me the quarters stand for him barely scraping by money wise to take care of his child and is pretty poor and he remembers the his old spouse used to collect quarters (as if to make a good memory out of the bad one before (or trying to cope with the pain)) then he also remembers back to a time he was never bored with her but now he is always bored with his child around (cause would you rather have a baby to talk to or a full grown human being?) "I can tell that your drinking eye Has never opened" stands for addiction as in he is now drinking as a coping mechanism (it's more common than most would think) he then falls into despair that everyone will die on him just as his spouse had (it's quite a hopeless feeling I've have suffered from it before) but he hate dwelling on what happened but also cant control it "I insist somebody will die and I hate moping". The lines "wishing the pills let you cry and I hate hoping" stands for how he had been prescribed but the pills arent helping (which can be common aswell) and coping with the pain isnt any easier and he hates hoping for the pills to work despite he always still will. And last but not least "someday I will go back outside and see her ok" is him wishing she was still here with him raising their child together rather than him raising them alone. But that's just my thoughts think what ya like

    one of my closest friends insists that this song is about abortion which is whack but the more I listen to it I guess I can kind of see it I don't remember everything he says but the "I insist somebody will die" part is saying that the fetus will be deletus but that'd just a theory and I don't want to say something controversial by accident I don't know if everyone here is pro-choice like me

    I think that it may be about somebody who has gone through a traumatic experience as an adult, which has depressed them, and the varying mood of the song is their mood swings on anti- depressants. I think they are remembering the person who passed and are trying to convince themselves that they are still out there somewhere, but deep down they know that it's too good to be true for example in this phrase;
    "Someday I will go back outside and see you? Okay..."

    I also think that it is the person remembering a happier time, for example, when they were a child, and them wanting to go back to that happier time, by trying to call it, the baby hotline.

    This is just my theory I don't know tho. Jack Stauber is a god

    At the very last part that starts with "I can tell that your drinking eye is never open" that lyric I think that the whole last part means that somebody close to ___ Could have died. ___ insists that she will die but nobody listens and the part with the pills could be "Happy pills" maybe but I'm not sure. ___ wishes that their pills would let them cry. And ___ hates hoping that she will come back. They believe that they will go back outside and that she will be ok once again. I might be reaching but I don't know I'm kind of new to this. I might have left a lot of holes in this theory so be aware.

    What if the song is
    Just there and there is no meaning?
    What makes us believe that we need an explanation for a song? We're just needy little gremlins aren't we? Yeah.
    Though I like listening to this song whenever I draw angsty stuff (yknow how it be sometimes) and honestly it be cool.
    But like
    Why ?
    What's the point of anything?
    Just make one up if ur desperate for an explanation.
    Dam.
