this song sounds like fear but like... in a good way? like i know it’s ab drugs & stuff but i like to think of it as a nightmare type of thing? like a soundtrack to my fears.

Lyrics: So we party when the sun goes low Imminent annihilation sounds so dope I'm not shy but I refuse to speak Because I don't trust you to understand me You know me as the girl who plays with fire But this is the song I wrote you in the dark I'm not gonna sleep anymore (I hear they're calling my name) I'm not gonna sleep anymore The boys are such a bore The girls are such a bore I never trust the government And pray to God for sure, yeah I don't need to sleep anymore That's what the drugs are for Every city has a place like this Underneath the bridges where the tainted kiss Bullet wound with the butterfly wings So I can sing along while I break things You know me as the girl who plays with fire But this is the song I wrote you in the dark Ooh, you know me as the girl who plays with fire But this is the song I wrote you in the dark I'm not gonna sleep anymore I'm not gonna sleep anymore The boys are such a bore The girls are such a bore I never trust the government And pray to God for sure, yeah I don't need to sleep anymore That's what the drugs are for Paradise on the right, hell on the left The angel of death right behind me Paradise on the right, hell on the left The angel of death right behind me Paradise on my right, hell on my left And the angel of death, she said to God "Un-fuck the world, un-fuck the world You stupid girl, you stupid girl" I'm not gonna sleep anymore I'm not gonna sleep anymore The boys are such a bore The girls are such a bore I never trust the government And pray to God for sure, yeah I'm not gonna sleep anymore That's what the drugs are for That's what the drugs are for The boys are such a bore The girls are such a bore I never trust the government And pray to God for sure, yeah The boys are such a bore The girls are such a bore I never trust the government And pray to God for sure, yeah

Sarah Kate
Sarah Kate 16 days ago
@Kelsey Gonzalez I dont know what type of satanism you're referring to with your original comment, but levayan satanism has nothing to do with worshiping satan. Most satanists today dont believe in either god or satan but see satan as a symbol for individualism and self preservation, so it's not a bad thing. Hope that was informative lol
RVLQ
RVLQ 23 days ago
Kelsey Gonzalez oh I completely agree with you. Satanism is very real and sometimes we should be careful what we put our ears through. I love grimes, tbrh her “edginess” is what makes her more interesting to me rather than scare me away. I don’t practice occult stuff but I like to learn about it. I think not only is the lyrics symbolic but also the unofficial video lol
Kelsey Gonzalez
Kelsey Gonzalez 23 days ago
thetree666 my bad. I didn’t know people’s views on satanism were very different. From my knowledge, I’ve always thought of satanism as people worshipping satan and just basically being evil. I was with my friends and one of them educated me on how satanism is misunderstood through Bible.

@Margot agreed and appreciate your input. I may of at one time enjoyed this music but not my forte anymore I suppose but I am glad it brings others joy. Psychopaths (like loser Francis) who think they can judge an individual off one comment all because thier baby feelings are hurt bc not everyone aligns together imo shouldn't even have internet access. I'm sure hes a blast to hang out with. Mommy should have done better. Good day Margot! 😊

@Jonny Nuss that feeling of shame comes from societal pressure perpetuated by the homies, who are evidently too narrow minded to accept the kind of music he likes without thinking differently of him. it's the fault of the homies, it's the fault of society at large. if you're ashamed of the music you listen to, it's because society conditioned you to feel that way.

@O . O yeah that's what I was referring to, curious if this was it and it just changed names, but then again she talked about how much she loved the game dark souls so I thought it was weird of her to maybe change it but thought she could have run into a trademark issue or something.

@i am suffering All of it! But he's done a lot of stuff, and it varies considerably over time, while always sounding like him. "Rock Is Dead" was always my favourite, but that's quite hard glam rock, ironically. You might like "Coma White", "Great Big White World", "The Dope Show", as a starting point. To be honest, Grimes reminds me a lot vocally of Kelli Ali, original singer for the Sneaker Pimps, so 90s trip hop might be more your thing.
