RX Queen
Deftones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I won't stop following you
Now help me pray for
The death of everything new
Then we'll fly farther

'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me, I won't mind

We'll stop to rest on the moon
And we'll make a fire
I'll steal a carcass for you
Then feed off the virus

'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me, I won't mind
'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me, I won't mind

(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)

I see a red light in June
And I hear crying
You turn newborn baby blue
Now we're all the virus

You're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me, I won't mind
'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me, I won't mind

(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(And now look at 'em
Look at 'em now, look at 'em, sting)
(Sting)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Deftones's song RX Queen are cryptic and open to interpretation, but at their core, they seem to be about a person's infatuation and devotion towards their lover, regardless of the consequences that come with it. The opening line, "I won't stop following you," suggests a certain level of obsession and desire to be with this person, even if it means praying for "the death of everything new," which could symbolize the end of anything that threatens their relationship or standing in the world. The desire to be with this person is so strong that they're willing to travel to the moon with them and sustain themselves by feeding off of the virus.


The refrain of "you're my girl and that's alright, if you sting me I won't mind," further emphasizes the idea that this person is willing to endure any pain or hardship for their love, and that they see the sting as worth it if it means being with them. The final lines, "I see a red light in June and I hear crying, you turn newborn baby blue, now we're all the virus," introduce new surreal and unsettling imagery, suggesting that the relationship has taken a dark turn, and that their devotion to this person has blended them together into one entity.


Overall, the lyrics to RX Queen are a haunting and poetic exploration of the consequences of desire, obsession, and devotion, and how they can ultimately consume a person and leave them unrecognizable.

@samharris4793

I've been there. Here's my interpretation:

I won't stop following you
- addict chasing drug
Now help me pray for
The death of everything new
- recovery for both
Then we'll fly farther
- imagine sobriety for us, no more chase
'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
- despite being poisonous, it's ok because I need your connection
If you sting me
I won't mind
- fuck me over I don't care, I still need my fix
We'll stop to rest on the moon
And we'll make a fire
I'll steal a carcass for you
- empty promises to pay back a front
Then feed off the virus
- biproduct of addiction
'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me
I won't mind
'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me
I won't mind
- fuck me over I don't care, I still need my fix (same delusion)
I see a red light in June
And I hear crying
You turn newborn baby blue
- upset she's moving away around summer and I will be nothing without you
Now we're all the virus
- nobody can hide from it
You're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me
I won't mind
'Cause you're my girl
And that's alright
If you sting me
I won't mind
- redundant
