Ego Death
Ty Dolla $ign Lyrics


You used to know how to love me right
You used to know how to love me right

Ooh, yeah

You've got some things on your mind
I would hate to see you cry

Ego death is where you find happiness
That's the only place you find happiness
Off too many drugs, it's so bad for us
One too many drinks and you had enough

Murdered my ego when you walked away
It hurt my ego when you walked away
Gave you my all, that wouldn't make you stay
Murdered my ego when you walked away

You wear this look on your face
So much animosity

Ego death is where you find happiness
That's the only place you find happiness
Way too many drugs, it's so bad for us
One too many drinks and you had enough

Murdered my ego when you walked away
It hurt my ego when you walked away
Gave me your all, that wouldn't make me stay
Murdered my ego when you walked away

Hold on, this train going by
Free to do what you want to do
You've got to live your life

Lotta people be thinkin', but I'm just a sayer
Artists can't perform the Super Bowl, but it's okay for the players?
All these half-way movements, need a whole lotta improvement
Everybody wanna talk, everybody wanna type
Ain't nobody finna do sh-
And everybody throwin' dirt, all that talk won't work
All that talk don't work, now, who you think you talkin' to nerd?
W-w-w-w-wait, it get worse
Wait it, wait it, wait, it been bad
Showin' up to the Grammy's mad
Tryna win some' we already have
Tryna become some' we already are
Don't make me go Rastafar'
We doin', no tryin', no dyin', we livid, I'm livin', I get more specific
All these admirations, likes, and false validations
Feeding to our ego, talk for somethin', negro
One in four get locked up, your girlfriend get knocked up
Plan B was they Plan A to lower the count of our families
To lower the count on our damn votes

(Your joy isn't tied to me) let the man quote
Who dropped drones on 'em?
(Your joy isn't tied to me, yeah) Ye, don't take that tone on 'em
Don't go Watch The Throne on 'em
(Your joy isn't tied to me) just hit a billi', he goin' on 'em
(Your joy isn't tied to me)

I let my ego down and then I rise back up
I let my ego down and then I'll be stronger
I'm armed, to let a sucker step up and get bombed
By a beat created by my producer
I am losin' my mind 'cause your heart's so blind
When you left me outside, I be losin' my mind
I am losin' my mind 'cause your heart's so blind
When you left me outside, I be losin' my mind

It's gonna cost you to be great
You will have to sacrifice something to be great

Really want to hear the story behind how this song came together? Were all of you at a party discussing 'Ego Death' experiences & got inspired? Did Skrillex have a concept? Had TY had that hook on repeat for weeks before showing the others? Would love to know the story behind how this song came together, because it's a song with a lot of depth and a lot going on

hi mynameis

Judging from the lyrics, whoever created it has never experienced ego death.

I'm proud of Skrillex. He's evolving as a Dj and an artist. Really glad to see him branch out into other musical genres like this, as it's something unique to him. Can't wait to see him try out Future House / Bass

@WickedWenchEnt When I first heard the Nuawr version, I was shocked that Ty would copy this without giving any credit, but when I further looked into it, I realized that is was released through Distrokid, and a feature they offer is the ability to "previously release" a track. What that does is it tells the streaming services that even though a record is being uploaded in the current year, it was actually recorded and released a while ago (Think how Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side Of The Moon" is on Spotify, and says it was released in 1973, even though Spotify hasn't existed since 2006). So I think that Nuawr heard Ego Death, decided to make their own version, and then make it seem as if it was released 4 months before "Ego Death." Skrillex would never steal something this blatantly without giving appropriate credit. I don't know if this was a move by Nuawr to get more attention, cause if it was, it did not work.
