Lyrics

I’m a fucking jug, close your circle with my hooves
I’ll snub you faster, I’ll fuck you in half
My gauge go true vulture
I hate you, I hate you colder
My hate crush your shoulders, but you feel me in your liver
My funeral’s all the blister, all corrosive and rupture
My lingo roaches fucker, I feast on you

I fucked you in half
I see you fiending marvelous
Gagballs drooling pools ’cause
I see you fiending marvelous
Gag ’til I’m all drenched
Gagballs drooling pools ’cause

My cum hatch in you
Struck books of match in you
Subwoofer I’m dry-humping
‘Lectrify me, I’m fucking
Apparitions, fire
We desire agony, exposure
Ground flesh in heat
Human flesh wreath can’t go nowhere
Too iron to rant, I lift my hammer
Drives us red, bottomless pit rising
Out and through my hammer, like the dead

I fucked you in half
I fucked you in half
I see you fiending marvelous
Gagballs drooling pools ’cause
I see you fiending marvelous
Gag ’til I’m all drenched
Gagballs drooling pools ’cause

My hooves’ll snub you faster
I fucked you in half
My hooves’ll snub you faster
I fucked you in half
My hooves’ll snub you faster
I fucked you in half
My hooves’ll snub you faster
I fucked you in half

I see you fiending marvelous
Gag ’til I’m all drenched
Gagballs drooling pools
‘Cause this pit’s bottomless

I’ll bleed you through this tase, don’t get depressed, you won’t survive
I’ll reap you through this maze of masochists bulging with hives
Let this craving slave you bad appoint your fix
My chemicals molest your sanity, anoint at risk
Death classic, bitch
Gag on it, bitch
I see you fiending marvelous
Gag ’til I’m all drenched

I fucked you in half
I fucked you in half
I see you fiending marvelous
Gagballs drooling pools ’cause
I see you fiending marvelous
Gag ’til I’m all drenched
Gagballs drooling pools ’cause

I fucked you in half

Full Lyrics

The sonic and lyrical onslaught that is Death Grips’ ‘Bottomless Pit’ may at first seem like a chaotic barrage of rage and explicit imagery. Yet, beneath the surface of the abrasive beats and aggressive vocals lies a complex tapestry that speaks to the human condition, power dynamics, and an internal struggle that refuses to be silenced.

As listeners brave the auditory maelstrom, they discover layers of meaning within each line, metaphor, and guttural cry. The song’s title itself suggests an abyss—a metaphor for the inescapable depth of emotions, addiction, or perhaps society’s penchant for self-destruction—a theme that proves just as bottomless as the pit it describes.

Hammering Through the Facade: Aggression as a Veil

The ferocious language employed within ‘Bottomless Pit’ is not gratuitous but intentional, acting as a shield for vulnerability. The vehement ‘hate’ and the depiction of violent acts come across not just as literal expressions of anger, but as a defense mechanism against the world.

By delivering lyrics that teeter on the edge of comprehension and discomfort, MC Ride creates a sonic embodiment of a psyche under siege, using his ‘hammer’ to crush external perceptions and reach for a stark truth beneath.

Into the Vortex: The Hidden Meaning of Desperate Pleas

‘I fucked you in half,’ a recurring line in the song, speaks to more than a mere physical action. It echoes a sense of division within the self, a brutal severing of what once was whole—whether referencing identity, society, or interpersonal relationships.

Moreover, ‘I see you fiending marvelous’ could suggest a sardonic commentary on society’s addiction to chaos and spectacle, a voyeuristic craving for destruction that is morbidly ‘marvelous’ to our baser instincts.

An Anthem for the Disenfranchised: Rage Against Conformity

Despite—or perhaps because of—its abrasive nature, ‘Bottomless Pit’ is an anthem for those who feel stifled by societal norms. The mention of ‘hooves’ and the aggressive stance against being ‘snubbed’ resonate as a rebellion against being herded or domesticated by mainstream expectations.

In this context, the song embodies a raw escape from the herd mentality, a primal roar from the depths of individuality that refuses to be tamed.

Disintegration of the Ego: ‘This Pit’s Bottomless’

Themes of self-destruction and transformation permeate the entire track. The constant flux of ‘I fucked you in half’ to the acknowledgement of ‘this pit’s bottomless’ serves as a relentless reminder that in the quest for the true self, one must confront the abyss.

This confrontation, however, is not simply an end—it becomes a journey of disassembling the ego, where one peels back layers of persona until nothing but the raw, unfiltered core remains.

Memorable Lines That Claw at the Psyche

‘My funeral’s all the blister, all corrosive and rupture’ stands out as a brilliantly distressing image. It suggests a legacy of pain and damage, a life that leaves a mark not through beauty but through its corrosive impact.

Equally haunting is ‘Let this craving slave you bad appoint your fix’, a line that encapsulates not only addiction but also the human tendency to submit to destructive patterns in search of elusive satisfaction. These words remind listeners that what they crave may just be the chains that hold them captive.
