Get Got
Death Grips Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Get get get get
Got got got got
Blood rush to my
Head lit hot lock
Poppin' off the
Fuckin' block knot
Clockin' wrist slit
Watch bent thought bot

Tail pipe draggin' volume blastin' bailin' out my brain
Red light flash
Dem stop I smash
Abraxas, hydroplane, massive
Catch this flight flow
Rainin' madness
Mastered mine and laced
The ave with black cat fish tailin' waves of stratus
Curb right ta far left lane

Don't wait for me, if I care
Bout anything, anywhere
Losin' myself, I get the stares
What I'm lookin' at, wasn't there
(Wasn't there)

Nothin' out there
Can't stay inside
Hit the bar, sleep deprived
Who drove the car
I'm still alive
Up in smoke, moon was low
How'd you know
Didn't say I did
Whose is this, you know what this is, but do you know

Get get get get
Got got got got
Blood rush to my
Head lit hot lock
Poppin' off the
Fuckin' block knot
Clockin' wrist slit
Watch bent thought bot

Fly inside out
Rot dem big shot simp slot shit but a one hit quick stop

So many ways
Ta skin the frame
Remember when
First got strange
Now I just think it life obey
So what comes next
Right away
(Right away)

Raise the cup, tilt it dry
Come black cloud
Cover the sky
Tongue thought pupil
Of your eye
Sickness moves you can't deny
Lickin' thought you mastermind
For mercy man cry

Yeah I'm knowin' and
You know why
Nail thought mental
Ever dem try
Pigeon hole me get crucified
Can't clone this edge
What's it cost
To lose your head
Wit out end up lost
Should be askin'
Where's the safe
Born wit a ski mask
On my face

Get get get get
Got got got got
Blood rush to my
Head lit hot lock
Poppin' off the
Fuckin' block knot
Clockin' wrist slit
Watch bent thought bot

Lycanthropic manic cycles
Fire water burnin' bibles
Wake up ragin' call a taxi
Take me to the nearest city
Cell light up yeah get at me make it quick though blood I'm busy (get busy)

Drilled a hole into my head
Pierced the bone and
Felt the breeze
Lift my thoughts out
Dem sick bed
Wit a pair of crow
Skeleton wings
Know nothin' since then
It seems
Been floatin' thought
The nexus threadin' dreams

Get get get get
Got got got got
Blood rush to my
Head lit hot lock
Poppin' off the
Fuckin' block knot




Clockin' wrist slit
Watch bent thought bot

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Death Grips's song Get Got are highly abstract and open to interpretation, but they seem to express a sense of manic energy and chaotic rebellion. The repetition of "get get get get, got got got got" creates a hypnotic rhythm that is both menacing and compulsive. The blood rush to the head and the wrist slit watch are images of self-destructive behavior, while the tail pipe drag and volume blasting suggest reckless driving or drug use. The references to Abraxas and hydroplaning add to the sense of chaos and danger, as if the singer is careening out of control.


The lyrics also suggest a sense of detachment and alienation from society. The singer seems to feel lost and disconnected from reality, staring at things that "weren't there" and feeling the stares of others. They seek escape in sleep deprivation, alcohol, and drugs, and are haunted by thoughts of losing their mind or being crucified. The imagery of drilling a hole in their head and lifting their thoughts out of a sick bed with crow skeleton wings is both surreal and disturbing, hinting at a possible descent into madness or death.

@big_man_on_the_scene

this is literally best track they could've ever chosen as an opening track, it doesn't nurture you as you enter the crazy manic yelling side of death grips but it doesn't throw you into it either

@zakman4584

Honestly I feel like it rlly does throw you into it in a good way

@BrobleYT

One of the best album openers of all time imo

@alexr6527

i always kinda wondered why this song is their most popular, it’s good but idk. maybe it’s cause i’m used to heavier music already
