Billie Eilish – Therefore I Am Lyrics

Therefore I Am Lyrics

I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am

Stop, what the hell are you talking about?
Get my pretty name outta your mouth
We are not the same with or without
Don’t talk ’bout me like how you might know how I feel
Top of the world, but your world isn’t real
Your world’s an ideal

So go have fun
I really couldn’t care less
And you can give ’em my best, but just know

I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am

I don’t want press to put your name next to mine, we’re on different lines
So I wanna be nice enough, they don’t call my bluff
‘Cause I hate to find
Articles, articles, articles
I’d rather you remain unremarkable
Got a lotta interviews, interviews, interviews
When they say your name, I just act confused

Did you have fun?
I really couldn’t care less
And you can give ’em my best, but just know

I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am

I’m sorry, I don’t think I caught your name
I’m sorry, I don’t think I caught your name

I’m not your friend or anything (I’m not your friend)
Damn, you think that you’re the man
(They wanna, they can try to)
I think, therefore, I am (Damn)
I’m not your friend or anything (Friend, they wanna)
Damn, you think that you’re the man (You’re the man)
I think, therefore, I am (Therefore, I am)


mixture and lyrics:
“Therefore I Am” is an uptempo pop, dark pop, and electropop track that has hip-hop influences.
Both the title and corresponding lyric are a reference to “Cogito, ergo sum”, a philosophical statement coined by René Descartes.

Music critics have commented that the song features minimalist production consisting of bass guitar, kick drum, “disaffected vocal performance” and a “swaggering beat”.

Moreover, the track has braggadocios rapped verses and use of a synthesizer repeated throughout the hook.

Lyrically, Eilish sings about disregarding people’s opinions towards her.
She explains that she is an individual with a mind of her own and does not require anybody making decisions on her behalf.

In the chorus, Eilish makes fun of an unknown person, telling them that they believe they are “the man,” while beginning to wonder the reality of existence.

As the song continues, Eilish does not feel the person is what they believe themselves to be.

In the first verse, Eilish expresses disdain towards the constant media coverage about her and demands the charlatans to stop speaking Eilish’s name as if they know her personally.

Laura English of Music Feeds theorized that she is singing about “articles about her baggy getups to paparazzi shots when she wears normal clothes.”

In the bridge, Eilish laughs as she pretends she does not know who they are, asking whether they know her name.
