Dirt Room Lyrics

I'm like a ghost
I'll be living in a dirt room
Waiting for the day to be close
To the window when you're home
I'll be standing by your back door
Reaching for the knife in my coat
I'm going to put it to your throat
Sweaty piggy, you're a...

    I think it is Justin being the master over drugs now/ killing the addition. It sounds like he wants to kill someone, bury them alive but he's just personifying the drugs/ the dealers / the addiction, much in the same way Lupe Fiasco personify's "the streets" "the cool" and "the game" as people.

    It seems like some on who took something from the singer (money, as if in the lyrics, or something else possibly), and the singer is getting revenge. As in the first verse,


    "Waiting for the day to be close
    To the window when you're home
    I'll be standing by your back door
    Reaching for the knife in my coat
    I'm going to put it to your throat
    Sweaty piggy, you're a bad man
    What a fucking sad way to go"

    The Chorus is pretty straightforward.

    "You think you own me
    You should have known me
    You took the future and the food off my family's plate
    You think you'll use me
    I'm stronger than you
    You take my money, but it's useless
    We'll see what I do to you
    Look what I do to you"

    And the second verse continues after the first

    "Oh god then you awoke
    You started screaming through the duct tape
    Don't ever think I'm letting you go"

    The it comes back to a line in the first verse

    (Beginning of first verse)
    "I'm like a ghost
    I'll be living in a dirt room"

    (Near end of second verse)
    I'm busy digging you a hole
    Now you'll be living in a dirt room
    Breathing through the straw of your own

    So it becomes clear the singer is giving an "an eye for an eye" punishment.

    Then this line comes in and also concludes the song later, and it seems the singer may be using the villains pain for his pleasure, or something. I really don't know.

    "I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
    Then take a picture for the cover of our album!"

    Then there is the singer again with the villain, the signer with the villains "back against the wall".

    "And now I see you, oh
    'Cause your back's against the wall
    And finally you're mine
    You're mine"

    And then the song concludes with the chorus and then a piece from the second verse.

    "I really think that this is fun for the money
    We'll make you comfy for the time wasted making you rich
    I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
    Then take a picture for the cover of our album!"
