I gotta know, bitch, I be lurking outside your door, wait, wait
I gotta go, 24/7 live on the low, wait, wait
I gotta know, bitch, I be lurking outside your door, wait, wait
I gotta go, 24/7 live on the low, wait, wait

Match in the gas tank, bitch, boom boom
I was left in the bath, froze lips turning blue
Who knew screw loose fall and make a new noose
Scale the highest shit around, smoke and jump like Footloose (ah)
I ain′t talkin medicine when I say I got the juice (ah)
Cold pressed every day, I'm sipping and peeling fruit (ah)
It′s funny how they all the same, you say it, they said it too (ah)
I'd surely be at peace if I just get my mind the mute (what?)
Shut both my eyes, lay my head back (back)
Envision nothing but forests that still intact (-tact)
I see a place with no pavement, I right click save it
No painter could ever paint it, no scholar could ever say it (what?)

Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (ah)
Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know
Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (I can't take another day, I can′t take another day)
Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (I can′t take another day, I can't take another day)
(Ah) Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (ah)
Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (ah)
Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (ah) (I can′t take another day, I can't take another day)
Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know (ah) (I can′t take another day, I can't take another day)
I don′t know what you been thinking
I been doing lots of that
I been doing lots of that
I been doing lots of that
I been doing lots of that
I been doing lots of that

What?
I gotta know, bitch, I be lurking outside your door, wait, wait
I gotta go, 24/7 live on the low, wait, wait




I gotta know, bitch, I be lurking outside your door, wait, wait
I gotta go, 24/7 live on the low, wait, wait

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bones's song System Preferences seems to be a reflection of his mental state and the confined life he lives as a performing artist. The first four lines of the chorus ("I gotta know, bitch, I be lurking outside your door, wait, wait / I gotta go, 24/7 live on the low, wait, wait") can be interpreted as Bones feeling restless and trapped in his continuous cycle of touring, performing and living out of a suitcase.


The second part of the song's chorus ("Ready to, ready to go now, please just let me know / I can't take another day, I can't take another day") emphasizes Bones's dissatisfaction with his current lifestyle and the need for change. Throughout the song, the artist makes several references to substance abuse and the detrimental effects of constantly being on the move.


The verse "Match in the gas tank, bitch, boom boom / I was left in the bath, froze lips turning blue / Who knew screw loose fall and make a new noose / Scale the highest shit around, smoke and jump like Footloose" vaguely refers to a suicide attempt and Bones trying to find ways out of his current situation. The artist also mentions his need for mental peace, with lines such as "I'd surely be at peace if I just get my mind the mute" and "Shut both my eyes, lay my head back / Envision nothing but forests that still intact".


Overall, the lyrics of SystemPreferences paint a picture of an artist struggling with the effects of fame and the constraints of the industry, and calling for a change in his lifestyle before it's too late.
