Bones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ride dirty, motocross (vroom, vroom)
Used to crawl like a frog
Now I fly like Macross (phew, phew)
Across the land and through the fog
Chris Jericho, I break it down (break it down)
Y2J countdown (countdown)
Hands wrapped like Crash (like Crash)
Five packs in the bag (in the bag)
If you ever had my back (had my back)
Know I got you like tag (like tag)
I will get there in a flash (in a flash)
A lot of ram, no lag
Wait

Life don′t stop (stop)
Everybody rot (rot)
Might as well be the only skeleton on the top (top)
Sit, just watch (watch)
This is why I'm hot (ah)
Prepping like specs but I′m looking like Nacht
Okay, you pulling up in the drop (in the drop, in the drop)
Me, I just walk up in the spot (in the spot, in the spot)




Jotting notes like Bach (like Bach, like Bach)
Let me hear what you got (what you got, what you got, bitch)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bones's song MissingProjectFiles are filled with references to motocross, wrestling, and music while also having a reflective tone about life. The opening lines are about racing and riding a bike, comparing the speed of the bike to Macross fighter planes from a Japanese anime series. The next two lines mention former struggles and the now fluidity of movement. This could be interpreted as Bones highlighting his personal growth from crawling like a frog to soaring like a Macross. The following lines reference Chris Jericho, a former professional wrestler from WWE, and his famous countdown gesture during his entrance. Bones also references wearing hand-wraps like Crash, a character from the video game franchise Crash Bandicoot. He briefly digresses to mention having someone's back like a game of tag before returning to the idea of speed and efficiency.


The chorus serves as a reflection on life and death, with Bones comparing himself to a skeleton on top of everyone else. He seems to be observing life and acknowledging how quickly it seemingly passes by, telling the listener to sit and watch. The line "this is why I'm hot" appears to be a tongue-in-cheek self-affirmation as Bones is noting the cyclical nature of life while still maintaining his own relevance. The final lines of the song speak to collaboration and improvement, with Bones requesting to hear what someone else has got. The reference to Bach, a famous composer and musician, reinforces the idea of improving one's craft through constant refinement and study.
