Okay, you get money, okay, you fuck bitches
Okay, you get higher than...

Okay, you get money, okay, you fuck bitches
Okay, you get higher than anyone living
Okay, you be sipping, suppressants, you mix ′em
Prescriptions, you need 'em like breathing, I get it
You cooler than who be the coolest and more
But Bones got something that you need to know
You are the same as everyone out
Only the weak take the popular route
Feel like you popping ′til we come around
Get a big hit when they bumping your sound
Think you untouchable up until now
Skeleton touch will you make you turn around
Vanish now, where do you think I am now?
Evaporate, rise up turn into cloud
Never seen you when the rains coming down
I touch every drop before it touches the ground

I'm real, J. Lo, Ja Rule
They don't do it like I do
I′m real, J. Lo, Ja Rule
They don′t do it like I do

Check it out guys, it's your man
Burning the voicebox in the fucking underground and we′re back here
You know what I mean
I can't wait to fucking wrap my hands on this new Bones project called Unrendered
You already know man, straight from the fucking underground, you know what I mean?
You know, every now and then he drops that singing pussy shit
But we can get past that as long as he keeps dropping those bangers
(Yo, if you′re listening to this Bones, stop with the pussy shit)
Aye man, keep dropping those fucking bangers

And we're gonna keep showing up man, know what I mean?
Gotta give us that real shit, dawg




But anyways (that fucking skinny white pimp, man)
Hell yeah

Overall Meaning

The first verse of "MustBeARealDragWakingUpAndBeingYou" by Bones is an introspective take on the idea of success and fame. The lyrics point out how some people may feel accomplished by making a lot of money or having sexual partners, while others seek feelings of euphoria through drug use. Bones, however, offers a different perspective, pointing out that these things do not make a person unique. He asserts that popularity and success are not measures of a person's individuality or strength. Bones also addresses the idea of impermanence in life, stating that even those who believe they are untouchable will eventually encounter forces beyond their control.


The refrain "I'm real, J. Lo, Ja Rule / They don't do it like I do" could be interpreted as a sarcastic remark on the concept of authenticity in the entertainment industry. The reference to J. Lo and Ja Rule, two well-known pop artists, highlights the artificiality of the music industry while Bones asserts that he is the only artist doing something genuine. The second verse features a conversation between Bones and what seems to be a group of fans or fellow musicians discussing his upcoming album release. Bones' fans demand that he continue to create music that is both honest and reflective of his underground roots. The lyrics as a whole point to Bones' unique perspective on the current state of the music industry and its effects on individuality and creativity.
