RIVER FLOWS IN YOU
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Wake up, F1LTHY)
Death
It's cold (Cold Visions)

I'm operating under panic and I'm trying to master plan it
I lost everything, I'm trying to be glad I had it
I'm not tryna be sad about it
Took advantage
Shit been getting hard to manage
But I'ma be stuck in glory like rush hour traffic
Burning out rapid like matches
Each piece of clothing matches
In these places I imagined
In the darkness beyond sadness
In a purple coloured mansion
In a ring we spin like Saturn
Phantom tryna catch the dragon
I'm the king of nothing matters
In this castle that's abandoned (drain)
My body rotten, it's the price of being modern
Who said what 'bout me? Go call 'em
GTB, we way more awesome
One day gone but not forgotten
One day gracefully departing
One day when I'm just a body
They will act like we were buddies
Suffering more in imagination
Tryna switch the concentration
Just let go, be like water
I'm the most famous ex-model
I'm the boy that sends the bottles
I'm controlling all the markets
I control and I conquer
Do you think of me? I wonder
I'm the one, the one hit wonder
Light awaits outside this tunnel
Towards light through this tunnel (river flows in you)
Suffering more in imagination
