TheGrandestNothing
Bones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No good for my health, not good to myself, I am no use to anyone
Rip my eyes out, throw them down,
Once they hit the ground no seeing you now
Now I can only trust my reaction,
Gotta learn to walk without ending up in traffic
Lights off just staring at the wall,
Cut to me, lights on, just nobody home
I′m shaking, I'm panicking, seconds I′ll never get back
'Cause I throw 'em away like some evidence
Ready for reckoning, smoking, no questioning
Juice in the mason, make calls like I′m checking in
Look at the burial, see the resemblance
Between myself and the ones who I′ve ended
Hope it's to me that they pay no attention
Shoo ′em away to my dungeon I vanish
Deadboy, I could never ever stop, no
Yelling underground but you making pop songs
I could lie and say you got something going on
But since day one, bitch, you got it all wrong
Always living in contrast and trying to compare
Wish they could feel okay in the skin they wear

Stomp you in some shoes I ain't drop yet
Eyes drop to the floor, I′m a hot mess
I scream into the night like stop this
Every time I do some shit I'm like let′s drop this
Stomp you in some shoes I ain't drop yet
Eyes drop to the floor, I'm a hot mess
I scream into the night like stop this
Every time I do some shit I′m like let′s drop this
Stomp you in some shoes I ain't drop yet
Eyes drop to the floor, I′m a hot mess




I scream into the night like stop this
(Every time I do some shit I'm like let′s drop this)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bones's song TheGrandestNothing disclose the artist's inner conflict and self-destructive tendencies. The opening lines illustrate that Bones recognizes that his behavior is detrimental to his own well-being as well as to others. The following lines, “Rip my eyes out, throw them down, Once they hit the ground no seeing you now,” depict the artist's attempt to get rid of his pain and avoid facing his problems. However, this ultimately results in his isolation from those around him. He only trusts his reactions and has to learn to navigate the world without endangering himself.


The subsequent lines highlight that Bones is in a dark moment and struggling with addiction. He is aware that his actions have consequences, and he wishes that he could make amends, but he accepts that some people might never forgive him. The lines, “Deadboy, I could never ever stop, no, Yelling underground but you making pop songs,” indicate that Bones feels like he is the only one who can truly understand or relate to his struggles, and he feels like he is being disregarded by the music industry. The last lines show that he wishes that everyone could feel comfortable in their own skin and not have to compare their strengths and weaknesses to others.
