Bones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When the birds fly south and the snow come down and the crops all die
Bitch I'm outside, rolling these bones now bones be high,
If I ever go broke like I was last year I'm not even gon' lie
Bitch I might ride, bitch I might steal, bitch you might die
(verse 1)
Browning logo, moving slow mo, cohoctah woods, but I'm still in noho
Eyes like go pros I catch the low low, I see what you don't I know what you don't,
Ghillie suits now, lying with goose downs
Skeptic critics say that I'm the proof now
Hope they hate me, I really mean that
Change the game bitch, who brought the scene back
(verse 2)
Let the fans down, I picked the fans up
Look a band down I got our bands up
Everything is just like i'm dreamin'
If you ain't you bitch you ain't leavin'
You ain't breathin', we ain't teasin' always droppin' never take a breather
Showin' up is just conceding
They wanna meet us, they wanna be us,
but they can't could ride in beamers but
we riding in vans, wanna see us, this around the van, with the window tint, make sure they can't
(hook)
I'm, just tryna get home safe
Roll me up a big ol' 8
I'm just tryna get home safe
Roll me up a big ol' 8
(outro)
Feeling something like Joni Mitchell,
I've seen some shit and speak on the issue,
you live in hand but you talkin pistol,
tell me how the fuck that work when they come with missiles,
they banging now, you laying down,
spraying rounds so you praying now,




don't be barking if you ain't gon' bite,
cause we all know people that will tonight
