BB Poison
Death Grips Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Obey me

I sneak up on me
I shed my shh
My shock, my body clear
Obey me, poison
Obey me, obey me
I sneak up on me
I shed my shh
My shock, my body clear
Obey me, poison
Obey me, obey me

Where's your heat at?
It won't lit
I'm not surprised, check your thermostat, no digits
I drop a dime, you can have that, collect your tip
Go buy a rhyme and bring my cash back, you broke-ass bitch

I sneak up on me
I shed my shh
My shock, my body clear
Obey me, poison

Never betray me, oh and while you're at it
Double my inhibitor, I can't hack it
Be my buffer, my habit hunger havoc
I digress, I can't live in this contagion
I spread into incisions on occasion
Heavily stricken, witness visions
Omens wall-to-wall followed by a loss of any and all symptoms
It won't lit

You're like, "hold on, fuck, it won't lit"
Stay put, you're the wrong one, bitch don't fit
Too shook, your flows of blood, this won't hit
Got no hook, true or false, though you can't spit
Bitter face, Frida Kahlo the Costco remix, you're a case
All you got though free shit, what a waste
How can you not know?
So which is it, love or hate?
You'd rather not know why shit won't lit, fucks hesitate

I sneak up on me
I shed my shh
My shock, my body clear
Obey me, poison
Obey me, obey me
I sneak up on me
I shed my shh
My shock, my body clear
Obey me, poison
Obey me, obey me

Didn't mean to, I, I
Just assumed it'd be you, I, I
Never knew no idea, I, I
Was confused, excuses
It won't lit's a Rubik's Cubicle
For the new cog to chew off
To sulk with and flask on
How the sick with it put my mask on

Zach hit them off like, "it won't lit," they shit bricks
BB-poltergiest don't touch this, don't insist
Favorite the copyright then go home, bitch, no homeless
I'm in your house like, "oh shit, I own this"
I'll kick your ass out, don't bitch, bitch, it's winter, bitch
Take my trash out real quick or live in it
Where's my cash-out promo slip?




I'm skipping shit
When I'm tacked out, my it won't lit's it won't lit

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "BB Poison" by Death Grips are cryptic and require some level of interpretation. The song talks about a person who is struggling with themselves, and their focus is on their self-destructive tendencies. The person is being advised or ordering themselves to obey, indicating a self-inflicted pain or harm that they need to avoid. The lyrics "I sneak up on me, I shed my shh, My shock, my body clear, Obey me, poison, Obey me, obey me" suggest that the person is battling through internal conflicts, and they are trying to avoid becoming their worst enemy.


Furthermore, Death Grips exposes the frustration and desperation exhibited by the person, which they try to suppress. For instance, the line "Double my inhibitor, I can't hack it, Be my buffer, my habit hunger havoc, I digress, I can't live in this contagion" demonstrates the person's desire to leave their current situation or state of mind. However, they lack the necessary willpower to accomplish their goals, leaving them feeling trapped within. The repetition of "it won't lit" throughout the song is a symbol of how the person's life is not going well, and they are struggling to make the necessary changes needed for things to work out.


In summary, "BB Poison" is an introspective track that covers a person's inner battle and the difficulty of maintaining self-control. The lyrics are complex, full of symbolism, and require some in-depth analysis to uncover the meaning.

This song is about ego death
I (ego) sneak up on me
I shed my shh(ego)
My shock (mind) my body clear
Obey me poison
Obey me (ego)
:) This song is just...a....masterpiece
Or as I dub it, vibrations of gold
Death Grips are ascended masters fr

It's a shame that death grips goes harder than literally anything, like what else do I listen to after this?

Percy Bysshe Shelley

You could try some more extreme stuff like actual noise music, but that‘s honestly not the same; it doesn‘t generate the same kind of hype.

jake craycraft

@Percy Bysshe Shelley yea... not the same. I'm just grateful DG has a rather large library of material

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Roy Noisivid I agree, they‘re one of the few bands that have content I personally enjoy on every single one of their albums!

Double

Only bands that make me go hard are Death Grips, early system of a down, Rage against the machine, and sometimes Nirvana

Kayi
