Drugs & Money
Chase Atlantic Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I, I think I'm God and some other shit, yeah
You know how I get when I'm in my head, yeah
Pink shadows in the basement, whoa
What's that pink shadow in the basement?

Mama, I'm sorry, reality's boring
I cut it up, wash it all down with a forty
I probably won't snort it
My head is discarded
I try to ignore it, I try to ignore it
I'm searching for a drag, girl, you know the story
Girl, you know the story

Drugs and fucking money
I can hear the birds sing
Drugs and fucking money
Fucking up this whole thing
Drugs and fucking money
Only thing that I need
Drugs and fucking money

Yeah, drugs and fucking money
I can hear the birds sing
Drugs and fucking money
Fucking up this whole thing
Drugs and fucking money
Only thing that I need
Drugs and fucking money, yeah
Drugs and fuck-

Gold plated chain in my pocket
I could make it rain if I wanted to
She said, "You got drugs 'cause I want 'em"
Hell, no
I told you that money got to stop it

Mama, I'm sorry, reality's boring
I cut it up, wash it all down with a forty
I probably won't snort it
My head is discarded
I try to ignore it, I try to ignore it
I'm searching for a drag, girl, you know the story
Girl, you know the story

Drugs and fucking money
I can hear the birds sing
Drugs and fucking money
Fucking up this whole thing
Drugs and fucking money
Only thing that I need
Drugs and fucking money

Yeah, drugs and fucking money
I can hear the birds sing
Drugs and fucking money
Fucking up this whole thing
Drugs and fucking money
Only thing that I need
Drugs and fucking money, yeah

Drugs and fucking
Damn, I love it
Maybe I should drop it, pick a different subject
Maybe it's deliberate if it's lacking substance
Baby, you still listen so I know you love it
I know you love it

Oh, are you sucking cells so nicely
Or write about at light speed
I'm sure your parents wouldn't like me
These circumstances can be frightening
Guess I managed all your time, please
Balance addiction on a tight string
Money and drugs are all I think about
So I'ma drop this song and let the birds sing

Damn, I love it
Maybe I should drop it, pick a different subject
Maybe it's deliberate if it's lacking substance




Baby, you still listen so I know you love it
I know you love it

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Drugs & Money" by Chase Atlantic are about addiction and the desire for materialism. The chorus, "Drugs and fucking money, only thing that I need," shows the singers' complete apathy for everything else. The opening lines, "I think I'm God and some other shit, yeah," shows a level of confidence born out of their addiction. They know they can get high and make money, and that's all that matters to them.


The next lines, "Pink shadows in the basement, whoa, what's that pink shadow in the basement?" allude to shadows cast by illicit drugs, which are often pink or purple. The singer is looking for their next fix and sees the shadows as a sign that they're getting closer to it.


The rap verse only emphasizes the singer's addiction and their complete disregard for reality. They'd rather wash down their pills with a forty-ounce beer than face their problems. Despite this, they're aware of their addiction, "My head is discarded, I try to ignore it." They're just unable to overcome it.


The song's outro, "Maybe it's deliberate if it's lacking substance, baby you still listen so I know you love it," is self-aware. The singer knows they're writing a song about drugs and money, but they also understand that people want to hear it. It's not about substance; it's about giving the people what they want.

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NIV‬

ROMANS 10:9-11 “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame”

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭19:10‬ ‭

God wants us to believe in His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who died for our sins :D When we truly believe in our hearts that Jesus is the Son of God, who died for our sins so we could have eternal life with God, we are saved from the eternal fire and have eternal life in Christ Jesus!! 💖 May God bless you all! 🕊💗

I'm searching for glory girl you know the story,
Girl you know the story,

Only thing that I need,

Fucking up this whole thing,
Drugs and fucking money,
Only thing that I need,
Drugs and fucking money,

Balance addiction on a tight string,
Money and drugs are all I thin about,
So imma drop this song and let the birds sing,

Maybe it's deliberate if it's lacking substance,
Baby you still listen so I know you love it,
