So What
Bladee feat. ECCO2K Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Chains around your throat all your words come out
Cocaine in my throat that my nose dripped down
Going with the flow with the wind go out
Coming from the dark with my Stockholm sound
I be in the park off a pill, so what
You did this a year, but for me for life
Drain Gang CEO, Im the ice king now
I don't give a fuck on my way back down

I survived a snake bite
I live in the late night
I can't see the hate right
Smoking on the grey skies
I went to hell 8 times
Now I got a sick mind
I know that you won't mind
Heard it through the grapevine
I don't know your star sign
I been going snow blind
I don't need to slow down
Put me in a ghost ride
I am going rogue now
Zip lock full of low now
Codeine in my blood fam
Shout out to the shield gang

Chains around your throat all your words come out
Cocaine in my throat that my nose dripped down
Going with the flow with the wind go out
Coming from the dark with my Stockholm sound
I be in the park off a pill, so what
You did this a year, but for me for life
Drain Gang CEO, Im the ice king now
I don't give a fuck on my way back down

Don't know how to show love
Please don't get your hopes up
You might get your soul crushed
Closed up like a rose bud
I just got my throat cut
Hope I don't get cold blood
Now I'm going ghost
Feel like Phantom of the Opera
Shifting my persona
Codeine in my soda
Slipped into a coma
Wish I never woke up
Ever since we sold out
People say they know us
Margiela loafers
But I know he's a poser

Chains around your throat all your words come out
Cocaine in my throat that my nose dripped down
Going with the flow with the wind go out
Coming from the dark with my Stockholm sound
I be in the park off a pill, so what
You did this a year, but for me for life




Drain Gang CEO, Im the ice king now
I don't give a fuck on my way back down

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee's "So What" explore themes of discomfort, pain, and disconnection from the world. The opening lines, "Chains around your throat all your words come out, Cocaine in my throat that my nose dripped down," describe a feeling of being trapped and unable to express oneself clearly, possibly due to addiction. The singer then discusses feeling disconnected and aimless, "Going with the flow with the wind go out, Coming from the dark with my Stockholm sound," suggesting that he is lost and searching for a sense of direction.


In the chorus, Bladee discusses his willingness to indulge in self-destructive behavior, "I be in the park off a pill, so what, You did this a year, but for me for life, Drain Gang CEO, I'm the ice king now, I don't give a fuck on my way back down." Here, he seems to suggest that he's willing to do whatever it takes to numb his pain, even if it means destroying himself in the process. The final verse touches on themes of betrayal and a loss of trust, "Ever since we sold out, People say they know us, Margiela loafers, But I know he's a poser," suggesting that Bladee feels disillusioned and betrayed by those around him.


Overall, Bladee's "So What" is a bleak and introspective exploration of addiction, disconnection, and the pain of feeling lost in the world.
