Death Grips Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Get so fuckin' dark in here
Come come fuck apart in here
I die in the process
You die in the process
Kettle drum roll hard shit
Fuck I said fucker don't start shit
Come come fuck apart in here
I hover above you
Life pulled out your mouth
I become you
Opening of the mouth
Unlawful possession
Jellyfish in cold sweat deep end
Hollow shell twitch disconnection
Pupils swell
My entrance
Hijacked no questions asked
Stretch you on like latex mask
My sigil's your epitaph
Come come fuck apart in here I die
I'm not you
Fear
You wear it well
Mademoiselle
Here's to your destiny
Hysterics scream help
Don't worry in a few you'll all be somewhere else
Prepare yourselves
Freelance motherfucker

Get so fuckin' dark in here
Come come fuck apart in here
I die in the process
You die in the process
Kettle drum roll hard shit




Fuck I said fucker don't start shit
Come come fuck apart in here

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Death Grips's song "You Might Think He Loves You for Your Money But I Know What He Really Loves You for It's Your Brand" are truly intense and chaotic. The song talks about a power struggle, possession, and surreal imagery. The opening lines, "Get so fuckin' dark in here, Come come fuck apart in here," sets the tone for a dark and disturbing atmosphere. The singer expresses his desire to take over the subject's body, "Life pulled out your mouth, I become you, Opening of the mouth, Unlawful possession." The imagery of "jellyfish in cold sweat deep end" and "pupils swell" add to the surreal and unsettling nature of the lyrics. The singer's takeover is portrayed as a violent process, "Stretch you on like latex mask, My sigil's your epitaph."


However, the song is not just portraying the singer's violent tendencies but also explores the subject's fear and vulnerability, "Fear, You wear it well, Mademoiselle." The chorus, "Get so fuckin' dark in here, Come come fuck apart in here," can be interpreted as a plea for release from the possession or a celebration of the chaos that the singer is causing. The song ends with "Freelance motherfucker," which could be a nod to the singer's power and freedom.


Overall, the lyrics of "You Might Think He Loves You for Your Money But I Know What He Really Loves You for It's Your Brand" are a disturbing depiction of possession and power dynamics. It is up to the listener to interpret the meaning behind the surreal imagery and chaos portrayed in the song.

Honestly this became one of my favorite Death Grips songs pretty quickly, Exmilitary really is some of their best work, shame they can’t get the samples cleared

EndOfSmallSanctuary

Adolescence is thinking any other DG album is their best. Adulthood is realising it's Exmilitary.

I've been in a car accident with this song on. That's what this always reminds me of. Kinda enhances the song actually.

I was recently run over by a car blaring "I've Seen Footage"
I cherish that memory.

I almost hit two cops in their patrol car while blasting this fucking surprisingly catchy Takyon/Gangnam Style mashup out the windows. I think about it so much.
