all the good girls go to hell
Billie Eilish Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

My Lucifer is lonely

Standing there, killing time
Can't commit to anything but a crime
Peter's on vacation, an open invitation
Animals, evidence
Pearly gates look more like a picket fence
Once you get inside 'em
Got friends but can't invite them

Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don't say I didn't warn ya

All the good girls go to hell
'Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And heaven's out of sight
She'll want the devil on her team

My Lucifer is lonely

Look at you needing me
You know I'm not your friend without some greenery
Walk in wearing fetters
Peter should know better
Your cover up is caving in
Man is such a fool
Why are we saving him?
Poisoning themselves now
Begging for our help, wow!

Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don't say I didn't warn ya

All the good girls go to hell
'Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And heaven's out of sight
She'll want the devil on her team

My Lucifer is lonely
There's nothing left to save now
My god is gonna owe me
There's nothing left to save now





(I cannot do this snowflake)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "all the good girls go to hell" by Billie Eilish depict a dystopian view of the world caused by humans through the lens of religious imagery. The song refers to Lucifer and his loneliness suggesting that he is an outcast from heaven after his fall. His loneliness can also represent the evil that exists within the hearts of men. The verse "Standing there, killing time, Can't commit to anything but a crime" talks about how people are always looking for something to occupy their time, which often leads them to commit crimes.


The song also alludes to climate change through the lyrics "Hills burn in California, my turn to ignore ya" talking about how the wildfires in California are burning down hills, and people are still not taking it seriously, even though it affects everyone. Similarly, when the water starts to rise, people are running out of options, and they will end up embracing whoever can give them a solution, even if it means teaming up with the devil.


The chorus "All the good girls go to hell cause even God herself has enemies" highlights the fact that even God has enemies, and no one is perfect. The song implies that even though you could make the best decisions and righteous choices, they won't matter in the end because the world is messed up beyond repair. The singer Billie Eilish is trying to get this message through her audience that we must take urgent action to prevent the catastrophic outcomes of climate change.

John 8:44: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Romans 1:28: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;


Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.


James 2:19: You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that and shudder.

Ephesians 6:11-12: Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

​​@@PugBEANYou know that the Devil and his minions can lie, right? God Almighty only speaks the TRUTH. Sorry, got a little antsy there but I'm just really passionate. They can slip through the cracks and once they gain a foothold in a person's life, then they can change him/her to do their bidding. They preach their demonic messages behind supposedly good "messages". That's how clever these ancient beings are. The Devil even twisted God's Word when it tried to tempt Jesus Christ the second time by persuading Him to jump off the cliff.

Matthew 4:5-7
5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:

‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, in their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”

7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”

Dear person whoever reads this,

Hey, you, yes, I am talking right to you. I hope you will see yourself with the eyes I see you one day because I can tell you have some awesome music taste :) You’re such a beautiful human being and worth and enough. I hope you know that you do only need yourself to be happy, I know society builds up the standard that whenever you’re alone you’re not living a happy life. But in fact, that is not true, if you start to realize that you actually deserve all the good things happening to you, you will treat yourself a lot nicer. I hope you let yourself rest, don’t beat yourself up over past mistakes, over regret, and over everything your mind wants to destroy you. I wish I could remove all those demons inside of your head because you deserve to feel happy. If you ever feel lonely then watch the sky, because you know, someone, at the same time is watching the sky too, maybe feeling the same way...I am glad you exist and I hope you won’t ever remove your own spot in this world, maybe you don’t feel like you belong here but, Angel, then build your home here. I don’t want you to leave this world unhappy. I want you to live every little second, I want you to feel alive, I don’t want you to see yourself just existing. You deserve it. Whatever happened, it’s not your fault, the demons in your head recognize that you have a beautiful heart, they want to take it because they have never seen such a beautiful heart as yours, so why let them win over you? . You’re not selfish for isolating yourself, but you deserve to talk to someone. If you’re reading this then please never forget to breathe and smile.





Don’t live up to other standards! It’s your story and not theirs.







Life for those who couldn’t, smile for those who forgot what a genuine smile is, love like there’s no other, hug-like it's your last one.




I love you and send you hugs.



You’re so strong, you’re still here, and I am proud of you.







YOU ARE NOT USELESS. READ THAT AGAIN.



YOU ARE WORTH IT. READ THAT AGAIN.



YOU ARE LOVED. READ THAT AGAIN.



I AM GLAD YOU EXIST. READ THAT AGAIN.



YOU ARE NOT A PROBLEM. YOU ARE HUMAN AND YOUR FEELINGS ARE VALID. READ THAT AGAIN.



YOU ARE NOT BEING DRAMATIC.





You’re not a burden to anyone, don’t be afraid to talk, to use your voice.





You’re beautiful inside out. Your body is beautiful the way it is.





Please don’t starve yourself. Please eat, I know it’s hard but you deserve food. You deserve to eat and drink.





I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. READ THAT AGAIN.





I WISH I COULD HUG YOU RIGHT NOW, SO A VIRTUAL HUG WILL DO.







It hurts me to see you’re in pain :( you deserve so much man, don’t let your emotions control you. Don’t let them get the best of you.




I love u I love u I love u I love u I love u please don’t go.







I am sorry that no one is hearing you, I am sorry no one is noticing that you have lost yourself. I wish I could take your pain away, it hurts me to see the pain in your eyes. I love you through my words and I mean it. I just want you to stay, hold on a little longer okay? Please? For me.??





I hope you have an awesome day/ morning/ evening/ night.





If it’s night for you, go to sleep, I know it’s hard to fall asleep right now but you deserve a good sleep. If you have nightmares, please, don’t let them fight you.





If it’s day for you, don’t start it with such sad music, I know it’s impossible to have a good day with such a mindset but take baby steps, start by drinking two cups of water in the morning, and so on... You will start building little healthy habits.





If it’s evening for you, you’re probably overwhelmed and stressed, I want you to know it’s okay to feel the way you feel. You don’t need to be scared, of course, you’re overwhelmed or stressed, I mean who wouldn’t? But it’s important to know that when you feel that way you should do a little self-care, such as taking a bath for example? You deserve to feel at ease and relaxed.

And if you are somewhere in between I hope you know that you’re stronger than you think, I know you will make it :)



Now wipe those tears away and smile for me, you really don’t know much a smile can brighten someone’s day, do you? I hope one day yours will become a genuine one where you don’t need to fake it anymore, because I can’t say this enough, you deserve a good smile and to feel alive. You’re worth more than every fucking cent in this world.





Remember crying is not weakness, let it out as much as you can but don’t let the emotion control you by giving up. It’s okay, you’re here, you’re safe, you can let it out.





Did anyone ask you, how you are feeling today? If not, how are you really? I don’t think you’re doing good, but you will feel good at one point. Don’t give yourself up.





I am sorry you feel misunderstood.





But anyone who gets to be with you doesn’t know how fucking lucky he/ she/ they are :).





Enough with beating up yourself for today, okay?!





- The stranger that cares about you more than anything.





I hope this is enough for you to stay today, tomorrow will be a new day, a new start, let go now. I hope you can stay.



This is your sign to stay and treat yourself with love, you deserve it.



And in case no one told you today, again, I am so proud of you.





I hope you will remember my words :)






Until tomorrow, my friend :)

@theharshtruthoutthere

@@gabrielcalebe750 The real reason singers became world wide pop stars and his solo career blow up was because of the freemasonry hand signs he show`d again and again. The 2 popular hand signs M J used often were 666 and devil horns.

In most cases the singer shows at least 4 hand signs and these are:
666
devil horns
one eye
tongue showing aka mocking.

The talent may be there, but the hand signs must be there. Thats how a soul becomes a “rich and famous” singer or actor.

When this came out I was homeless, on drugs, and then jail. I now have a house, job, and husband. This song and “Clover Cage - In The Sky” are the two songs that helped get rid of my depression. I just want to send love to everyone and I want everyone to know things will get better. We are in this together..I love you ❤️
