My empty shell shedding me

from Death Grips – Artificial Death in the West Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The song is a very powerful description of the process of death. An absolutely gorgeous one, too.

Normally when the spirit leaves the body this would be described as shedding your shell but here MC Ride describes the reverse the body discarding him.
