“Why aren’t you scared of me? Why do you care for me? When we all fall asleep, where do we go?”
What do you want from me? Why don’t you run from me?
What are you wondering? What do you know?
Say it, spit it out. What is it exactly?
You’re payin’? Is the amount cleanin’ you out? Am I satisfactory?
Today, I’m thinkin’ about the things that are deadly
The way I’m drinkin’ you down
Like I wanna drown, like
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna… end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna…
Keep you in the dark. What had you expected?
Me to make you my art and make you a star?
And get you connected?
I’ll meet you in the park, I’ll be calm and collected
But we knew right from the start that you’d fall apart
‘Cause I’m too expensive
It’s probably somethin’ that shouldn’t be said out loud
Honestly, I thought that I would be dead by now (wow)
Calling security, keepin’ my head held down
Bury the hatchet or bury a friend right now
The debt I owe, gotta sell my soul
‘Cause I can’t say no, no, I can’t say no
Then my limbs are frozen, my eyes won’t close
And I can’t say no, I can’t say no
Step on the glass, staple your tongue (ah)
Bury a friend, try to wake up (Ah-ah)
Cannibal class, killing the son (ah)
Bury a friend, I wanna end me
Why aren’t you scared of me? Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?
“Bury a Friend” is literally from the perspective of the monster under my bed. If you put yourself in that mindset, what is this creature doing or feeling?
I also confess that I’m this monster, because I’m my own worst enemy. I might be the monster under your bed too.Billie Eilish
