Thee 9 Is Up
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Still fancy me?
Answer me
What will you do if I find someone else?
You're lying (whatever)

Told bro, "let's rock"
We gon' climb up and get chilly at the top
Girl, please don't talk
I'm not Christian but I'm busting down the cross (bust down)
The shield got locks
We put gates up and we double up on guards
The 9 is up
Work the wizard ways, I'm punching in the clock (pew)

Read a bless for us
If you believe in luck
Trust is sacred
Oh, just a touch
Just know it's not enough
A place beyond the lust and temptations of love
Complete annihilation of us
Walk in line, see with another eye
SG, we fortified

I've been down bad trying to get back up
Had to make it worse, even more so
So when I'm at my lowest, there's no other way
I'd only go up, I hope it's so
Fear of death and stress causes stress and fear of death
I can't lie, I must confess
Fear of death and stress causes stress and fear of death
I'm tryna see it as a test
I'm praying to God, please guard me, bless me (please God)
Still the same me but, baby, lately I've been messy
I must forgive myself before you can even forgive me
The shield looks pretty, the Devil's busy
Oh, looks desperately for a sign, its trials and tribulation, why?
Oh, the brave attempt fails and falls flat
He tries to take everything back
Oh, he's sure that something will go wrong
And that makes everything go wrong
Oh, but still I hope it's strong (the road is long and must go on)

(Your love, your love, your love)
I'm falling twice every time, I just take a look in your eyes
(Your love, your love, your love)
In your arms, I'm a child, in your arms
(Your love, your love, your love)
I'm falling twice every time, I just take a look in your eyes
(Your love, your love, your love)
Bless me up, bless me up

Told bro, "Let's rock"
We gon' climb up and get shieldy at the top, haha
The 9 is up
Work the wizard ways, I'm punching in the clock (pew)




The shield got locks
Put gates up and we double up on guards

''I can't lie, I must confess

Fear of death and stress causes stress and fear of death

I'm tryna see it as a test''

Being overly conscious of death and having an overwhelming fear of it, hearing brutally honest stuff like this in music I enjoy listening to means a lot; it makes me feel understood and reminds me that there are others out there who often think and feel the same way.

And despite their intrinsic simplicity, at the moment, I truly can't think of any other artist besides Bladee who'd say something like this and manage to have a powerful effect and evoke an emotional response in me; it just feels so honest and organic.

I commend Bladee for the honesty, thoughtfulness, and positivity he manages to convey through his music. Let me know if any of you feel the same way :)

[Intro]
Do you still fancy me?
Answer me
What will you do if I find someone else?
You're lying
(Whatever)

[Chorus]
Told bro, "Let's rock"
We gon' climb up and get shieldy at the top
The bliss dont stop
I'm not Christian but I'm busting down the cross (Bust down)
The shield gon' lock
We put gates up and we double up on guards
The 9 is up
Work the wizard ways, I'm punching in the clock (Pew)

[Verse]
Greatness for us
If you believe in luck
Trust the sacred
Oh, just a touch, it's not enough
A place beyond the lust and temptations of love
Complete annihilation of us
Walk in light, see with anothеr eye
SG, we fortifiеd
I've been down bad trying to get back up
Had to make it worse, even more so
So, when I'm at my lowest, there's no other way
I'd only go up, I hope it's so
Fear of death and stress causes stress and fear of death
I can't lie, I must confess
Fear of death and stress causes stress and fear of death
I'm tryna see it as a test
I'm praying to God, please god may you bless me (Please God)
Still the same me but, baby, lately I've been messy
I must forgive myself before you can even forgive me
The shell is pretty, the Devil's busy
Oh, looks desperately for a sign, it's trials and tribulation time
The brave attempt fails and falls flat, he tries to take everything back
He's sure that something will go wrong, and that makes everything go wrong
But still the hope it's strong (The road is long you must go on)


[Bridge]
(Your love, your love, your love)
I'm falling twice every time, I just take a look in your eyes
(Your love, your love, your love)
In your arms, I'm a child, in your arms
(Your love, your love, your love)
I'm falling twice every time, I just take a look in your eyes
(Your love, your love, your love)
Takes me up, lifts me up

[Chorus]
Told bro, "Let's rock"
We gon' climb up and get shieldy at the top, hahaha
The 9 is up
Work the wizard ways, I'm punching in the clock (Pew)
The shield got locks
We put gates up and we double up on guards
