Cavetown - Sliipping Lately Lyrics




Picture this, promises, yeah
You're a stitch, you'll tell them anything
Hear me out, don't be difficult
We'll work this out, and then mess it up again

Oh I've been slipping lately, I've been slipping lately

Call it quits, dwelling's criminal
Sorry miss, condition's critical
Soda fizz, is stuck in his blood stream
Diagnosis, probably attention seeking

I've been slipping lately, oh I've been slipping lately
I've been slipping lately, oh I've been slipping lately

It doesn't really matter
You know what's real
Burning on your fingers
You know how to feel

I've been slipping lately, oh I've been slipping lately
I've been slipping lately, oh I've been slipping lately

Oh I've been slipping lately, oh I've been slipping lately

Cavetown Sliipping Lately Comments
  1. The B in LGBTQ

    I listened to this on Spotify and thought it was an advert

  2. Su Orion

    At the beginning of the song, your voice is really similar to Tom Holland's.

    Potato Solstice

    its not his voice, it's from a movie, back to the future (its really good I'd recommend watching it :))

  3. Rowan

    I'm not sure about the meaning,, can someone explain?

    Sam Hail

    idk if this is right but i personally think its about how robbie (cavetown) felt like he was losing control in life and how he has been "slipping lately". he was probably facing metal disorders like depression and anxiety and basically no one really helped him since he was "probably attention seeking" so hes left to face them on his own. idk hoped this helped.

    Rowan

    @Sam Hail Thank you so much!

  4. Cløudjckt _

    Using samples like lofi songs

  5. 0k nOtHiNg

    Its late night 3:30AM at 31 of december and i just want to stop thinking anymore

  6. Fern McLean

    when the people are talking at the start of this song I always say what their saying with them and it makes me so happy and euphoric im not sure why but it just does

    _robin_

    hey, u might like the film back to the future...

  7. Stranger Danger

    What’s that on the beginning?

  8. lizza 217

    those 70 people who disliked are just mad because they got coal on x-mas, im sorry to those 70 people

  9. dooblydoo

    im confused about the back to the future part😆 do i need some context or this is just a little thing robbie put

    _robin_

    I think its just a little thing Robbie put, I mean, some parts of the song, I can kinda see how they relate to the three films, but I think that's just my sub conscious making up stuff

  10. Bvbbles MSP

    the voice at the beginning sounds like tom holland's voice

    _robin_

    wtf is wrong with you? (lol, jk) its from back to the future, you should watch it some time, amazing film!!

  11. Allie

    Instead it's "My grades been slipping lately"

  12. listeningtothemoon

    if u didn't know, the dialogue in the background at the beginning of the song is from the movie "Back To The Future", ur welcome uwu

    _robin_

    it hurts me deeply when I see ppl who don't know that in the comments.

  13. Faith Kelly

    ONE POINT TWENTY ONE GIGAWATS!?!????

  14. Maxim Tandon

    I JUST NOTICED IT HAS TWO i's IN SLIIPPING NOW WHAT IS LIFE

    Daniel Caplan

    Maxim Tandon he doubled letters in most of the album’s songs

  15. a human being :D

    “What the hell is a gigawatt?”
    me too, buddy.
    but what I do know is that this is a great song

    _robin_

    wow, you actually don't know what that's from?

    an actual bird

    @_robin_ I didn't

  16. Samantha Arroyo

    In second 2:50 what noise do you guys hear?

    Daniel Caplan

    Samantha Arroyo a loading of a gun(?)

    Hopelessly Queer

    A gun being loaded/cocked

  17. Emily Wilson

    this is the first cavetown song i got into, because of the back to the future intro ;)

  18. oreokoiboy

    GREAT SCOTT!!

  19. oreokoiboy

    i just realized that the sample was from back to the future and i regret not knowing it sooner

    _robin_

    wow, im disappointed

  20. Wait For Me

    *1.21 G I G A W A T T S*

  21. kennedy davis

    58 people have no taste

  22. _robin_

    so this song is just about the three back to the futures? I mean that's what I hear, if uv watched the films it kinda makes sense, anyone have ideas? or just know?

  23. Savvy714

    I randomly thought of this song after months, love it. ♡

  24. Setsuko 313

    now i really wanna watch back to the future again

  25. DJ overkill

    Anyone else notice the back to the future reference 1.21 gigawatts!!

    (Edit) Btw sorry if i spelt gigawatts, jigawatts whatever

    Aubrey Phillips

    That's not a reference, that sounds like the exact audio from the movie

    Danneh SG

    Aubrey Phillips it is

  54. Miriam

    This is so so good

  55. -destryinaraincoat-

    This song is supposed to be sad but the beginning always makes me smile

    robbie you are precious best caveboy and you can't change my mind

    _robin_

    oh its suppose to be sad? I thought it was about the three back to the future films, im not very musically inclined, forgive me

    Imagine if it was Cavetown instead of t series

    sessu

    Cavetown would lose a lot of the relatablity that makes his music so great if he was that famous

    Spider Pan

    Big Foot nah I’m good

  62. Monique Lopez

    I love this song Spooky Lynn should do a lyrics video of this song

  63. 5'7 mouse

    this is so underrated and idk if i love or hate that :/

    BiBi

    Sam Singing And Stuff your pfp is pure gold. Btw i prefer that he has little fans... when you start getting way more fame, you loose the contact with your fans. Idk if that sad for Robbie but it is for me:p

    Little Beau Blue

    @BiBi I think he will still be interactive. It is very good for him to make money and he loves his fans. He has 1 million subs now holy crap. And he posted a regular video recently.

  64. Playlist Central

    This got stuck in my head without listening to it and so I listened to it and then it got more stuck. It still is stuck

    Emma

    mcsirwhattheduck theduck I got the joke but I wanted to call it out so they could edit and fix it

  69. Robin Urlings

    Why does this song have so little views it's such a good and unique song!!

    thotithehotti

    It’s bc it’s auto generated not uploaded by Robbie himself
    Auto generated videos are deleted by YouTube and reuploaded like once or twice a year I think? So yeah

  70. GhostDoggo

    oh yessss

  71. the random artist

    This is a really good song!

  72. Ana Sanchez

    1.21 GIGAWATTS!!

    Kashiroozz

    Pinoy Productions it’s a scene from Back to the Future. The movie might’ve been part of Robins childhood or something, not sure

    BlueDrew 2

    @John Parslow A gigawatt is equal to one billion watts. For reference, an iridescent light bulb uses 60 watts per hour. The amount of energy needed, 1.12 gigawatts, is equal to powering over 20 million light bulbs for an hour. The Delorean needed a ton of energy!

    Paula ••

    Pinoy Productions its from back to the future😂

    oreokoiboy

    Paula •• lol now i know this and i regret not knowing it sooner! the movie is a classic
