Astro-naut

What you know about rollin' down in the deep?
When your brain goes numb, you can call that mental freeze
When these people talk too much, put that shit in slow motion, yeah
I feel like an astronaut in the ocean, ayy

What you know about rollin' down in the deep?
When your brain goes numb, you can call that mental freeze
When these people talk too much, put that shit in slow motion, yeah
I feel like an astronaut in the ocean

She say that I'm cool (damn straight)
I'm like, "Yeah, that's true" (that's true)
I believe in G-O-D (ayy)
Don't believe in T-H-O-T
She keep playing me dumb (play me)
I'ma play her for fun (uh-huh)
Y'all don't really know my mental
Lemme give you the picture like stencil

Falling out, in a drought
No flow, rain wasn't pouring down (pouring down)
See, that pain was all around
See, my mode was kinda lounged
Didn't know which-which way to turn
Flow was cool but I still felt burnt
Energy up, you gon' feel my surge
I'ma kill everything like this purge (ayy)

Let's just get this straight for a second, I'ma work
Even if I don't get paid for progression, I'ma get it (uh, get it)
Everything that I do is electric
I'ma keep it in a motion (ayy, yeah)
Keep it moving like kinetic, ayy (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Put this shit in a frame, better know I don't blame
Everything that I say, man, I seen you deflate
Let me elevate, this ain't a prank
Have you walkin' on a plank, la-la-la-la-la, like
Both hands together, God, let me pray (now let me pray)
Uh, I've been going right, right around, call that relay (Masked Wolf)
Pass the baton, back to them all
Swimming in the pool, Kendrick Lamar, uh
Want a piece of this, a piece of mine, my peace a sign
Can you please read between the lines?
My rhyme's inclined to break your spine
They say that I'm so fine (fine)
You could never match my grind (true)
Please do not, not waste my time (Wolf)

What you know about rollin' down in the deep?
When your brain goes numb, you can call that mental freeze
When these people talk too much, put that shit in slow motion, yeah
I feel like an astronaut in the ocean, ayy

What you know about rollin' down in the deep?
When your brain goes numb, you can call that mental freeze




When these people talk too much, put that shit in slow motion, yeah
I feel like an astronaut in the ocean

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Masked Wolf's song Astronaut In The Ocean suggest a feeling of courage that comes from achieving one's goals and living up to one's beliefs, even in the face of ridicule and criticism from others. The first line, "What you know about rollin' down in the deep?" suggests a deep dive into the experiences of the subconscious mind. When "your brain goes numb," that's "mental freeze," but using that energy effectively requires putting "that shit in slow motion." The singer's confidence shines through in the repeated declaration of feeling like an astronaut in the ocean.


The repetitive verse "I feel like an astronaut in the ocean" implies that even though he may be surrounded by chaos or difficulty, the artist is on a mission towards success. The lyrics indicate the sense of freedom that comes with achieving your goals, especially when facing different types of obstacles, whether that be social constructs or personal turmoil. The final verse, where the artist mentions swimming in Kendrick Lamar's pool and the relay race, again captures the essence of achieving success through action despite continuous setbacks.

I have a lot of people ask me "what made you write Astro ... what is it about?" The art of music is that it means one thing to me but so many other things to other people... for me it was about knowing i was on a journey like an astronaut but I wasn't where I wanted to be... I wanted to be in space... I wanted to do what astronauts do.. me saying im in the ocean means i felt I was somwhere I didn't belong.. but I knew I was close to finding myself as an artist and getting the recognition I wanted from people about my music.. also "whatchu know about rolling down in the deep actually meant what do you know about being down in life and depressed.. i was kind of saying.. have you been similar to me and my down time.. have you been in the rough and the trenches.. some people also say why is the video not in the ocean.. well because I have found my spot in the world.. i know who I am with my music now.. so i'm not in the ocean.. i'm now in space.. where I belong... 2021 gonna be even bigger :) peace
