Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't go much,but tonight I'm in the shubz off a xan
With a bottle I might throw up
What's with all the hold up
I don't know no , Said that id slide late, 
I don't wanna go no
3 missed calls I said girl I hit you back later 
Foreign plugs bro working as a translator  
I could tell you something basic
Like how I'm sippin codeine to numb the pain
But I just sip it till i feel faded 
Mmhm
What's your name i forgot , wait
I can tell I ain't got to say what you want
What you doing where u been
It's been a while , what you on
Girl you probably should go back to your guy , I ain't the one no
Said she ain't like this , but she lied to me
Told her run it back girl while i run up my money
Said she wan vibe with me , ride with me
Im hearing sirens now I got to hide from em
Like I don't know what you took but it
Sure did inflate your ego
I don't know what looks better
The main shot or the b roll
The main one or the freak hoe
Same shit new spot same people
Some cold cold insane people
2X nah what does that equal
Me fucked up , shirts undone wearing shades indoors
I don't know what's what
I'd probably answer your third call
When your not at home
Perfume and ash on her fur coat
Mmhm
What's your name I forgot
Wait
I can tell I ain't got to say what you want
What you doing where u been at
Been a while , what you on
Girl you probably should go back to your guy , I ain't the one no
Said she ain't like this , but she lied to me
Told her run it back girl while i run up my money




Said she wanna vibe with me , ride with me
Im hearing sirens now I gotta hide from em

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to "Rosetta" by Adonis Rose & The N.O. Vaders describe a night out filled with ambiguity, drugs, and a sense of detachment. The singer sets the scene by mentioning they are not a frequent attendee at such events, but tonight they find themselves in the nightlife under the influence of Xanax, potentially leading to throwing up from excessive drinking. The sense of impatience is evident with the questioning of "What's with all the hold up", indicating a desire to move on or get to the point.


The lyrics delve into a conversation where there were promises of meeting up later but were not kept, as indicated by the missed calls and the dismissal of the girl's attempts to reconnect. The mention of a "foreign plug" acting as a translator adds an element of dealing with shady or unfamiliar situations in the pursuit of escapism through substances like codeine. The numbness from the drugs is described as a coping mechanism to deal with emotional pain, suggesting a desire to escape reality through substance abuse.


There is a sense of indifference and detachment in the singer's interactions with others, as shown by forgetting names and avoiding deeper conversations. The singer seems to prefer avoiding confronting situations or emotions by choosing to remain faded and detached from reality. The mention of potentially answering a call only when the person is not at home hints at a reluctance to engage sincerely with others and preferring isolation or superficial connections.


The lyrics also touch upon themes of deceit and self-preservation, with the singer acknowledging being lied to and recognizing the need to protect themselves. The mention of sirens and hiding further intensifies the sense of danger or consequences looming in the background. The repetition of certain lines reinforces a feeling of disorientation and uncertainty, mirroring a chaotic and unpredictable night where boundaries blur and self-preservation takes precedence over genuine connections.
