Whammy
Death Grips Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I get off and rid of 'em
I nail the coffin lid on 'em

Whatchu want some don't want none your
Number one is my two dollar whore
So whatchu bought that for?
Why you wanna rock that for?
Come here drop much more
Slow down turbo look down vertigo
Turn around, where'd she go?
Wah tried ta slip alpha bone game
Whammy

Knew you had it comin' grabbed your plum and your gomez
Even though I said don't go there, that's ho flair
Don't be a bitch and you know that's not even on the low, can't see check the Kodak
Who me yeah you feel me climbin out your stomach
Gettin queasy, easy does it, can't help yourself suck it
Whammy

I get off and rid of 'em
I nail the coffin lid on 'em

Collar popper holler but all I hear's nada
All this talk about dollars need ta stop real quick
Real shit ain't Prada you lost it, you slipped
Musta forgot who dis
Whammy
You're reaction I-man the cause
I'm buyin' land and gun while you're at the mall
Big man is small man wit' a tall can of flaws




You're head in my hand my hand in my
Whammy

So whatchu bought that for?

¿Por qué quieres rockear eso?

Reducir la velocidad turbo mirar hacia abajo vértigo
Slow down turbo look down vertigo

Date la vuelta, ¿a dónde se fue?
Turn around, where'd she go?

Wah trató de deslizar el juego de hueso alfa
Wah tried ta slip alpha bone game

What does that even mean?

David Miles

***** While all the vapid and artificial people are spending their time and money on material items and falling for advertisement schemes, ride is investing his time and money into buying his own large plot of secluded land and enough firepower to protect it and himself. He's alluding to the idea that one day shit is going to hit the fan and it will be chaos every man for themselves type situation and he will be fully prepared while the normies that were worried about the latest iPhone and supreme drops will have NOTHING and will be fucked.

While you were doing drugs I studied the blade
