Theme[]

"DGAF is different from my other songs. Yes, it has some swearing sorry mum but it’s also there for a reason, not gratuitously. I’m sorry if it offended you but sometimes I really DGAF. The song, at its core, is about feeling lost, trapped and confused. That feeling you get when you believed something so much then found out it was a lie. Sometimes it’s that your boss likes you, other times its when you tell someone a secret and they spread it around like it’s headline news. Other times it can be more insidious. The people you trust the most abandoning you when you needed them most. That last one is tough. And sometimes it’s not even real. We just think that’s what’s happening. And that’s okay. If you ever feel or are feeling now like you don’t know what’s true, maybe it’s time for you to throw your hands up and say I DON’T GIVE A F#$K!!!!"

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
I'm fighting to find it, the pieces are divided
I'm trying to hide it, you still disguise it
Their thoughts collided, it will be the end of me
I'm losing me, I'm losing who I want to be
Bounty hunters always look out, keeping, keeping track of me
They won't find me if you hide me
I'll keep your secrets safe beside me
Might keep trying to disguise me
But there's no way to divide me

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm lost, I'm gonna find it all, all
I'm lost, I'm gonna find it all, all

[Chorus]
I don't care what you're gonna say
I don't give a fuck anyway
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do
Starting to doubt everything I ever thought was true
I don't care what you're gonna say
I don't give a fuck anyway
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do
Starting to doubt everything I ever thought was true

[Verse 2]
My secrets confided in whispers, I lie in
No response to me, eyes shut, I'm trying to fake my disguising
No one will ever see
I'll set you free, take you to where you want to be
Eyes will mark the path, we walk as gates will open up to me
Don't bind us, just hide us
Chasing shadows off a blind path
Keep trying to disguise us but there's no way to divide us

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm lost, I'm gonna find it all, all
I'm lost, I'm gonna find it all, all

[Chorus]
I don't care what you're gonna say
I don't give a fuck anyway
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do
Starting to doubt everything I ever thought was true
I don't care what you're gonna say
I don't give a fuck anyway
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do
Starting to doubt everything I ever thought was true

[Bridge]
I don't know what you're asking of me
Pull back the shadows and set me free
Eyes wide open, I'm falling in
Fooled by those lies that you're spinning again
I don't know what you're asking of me
Pull back the shadows and set me free
Eyes wide open, I'm falling in
Fooled by those lies that you're spinning again

[Chorus]
I don't care what you're gonna say
I don't give a fuck anyway
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do
Starting to doubt everything I ever thought was true
I don't care what you're gonna say
I don't give a fuck anyway
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do
Starting to doubt everything I ever thought was true
