"If U Like", alternatively titled "If You Like", is an unreleased song by Poppy. The song is an outtake from the "Bubblebath" EP.

Theme

"If U Like", similar to "American Kids", is about Poppy and other stereotypical millennials. The first verse concerns the media feeding the public logic and information (which Poppy calls "light"), despite the public not agreeing with it. Though her and other millennials attempt to protest against it, the media fails to recognize these protests. In the chorus, she sings that everyone is sick of feeling numb, which is mostly likely a reference to ignorance and how it keeps the public happy. In the second verse, she confesses that she is blunt due to her being young and will not ignore something she cannot afford, nor will she "hop on the bandwagon" leading to it.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
They feed us through our eyes
Too scared to speak our minds
So speak up
We try to rendezvous
But they don't want us to
Why can't they see the light like I do?

[Chorus]
We are so young
But we're not dumb
We're not so different
We're just a little bit sick of it
We're done feeling numb

[Verse 2]
If I seem a little blunt
It's 'cause I'm a little girl, and I'm bored
I'm waiting for the day I hear somebody say
"Here's one you can't afford, hop on board!"

[Chorus]
We are so young
But we're not dumb
We're not so different
We're just a little bit sick of it
We're done feeling numb
We are so young
But we're not dumb
We're not so different
We're just a little bit sick of it
We're done feeling numb

[Chorus]
We are so young
But we're not dumb
We're not so different
We're just a little bit sick of it
We're done feeling numb
