[Outro]
You're here now. You have to help me
You have to help me
I need you. You have to help me
You have to help me
You have to help me
Please help me
Please help me
Please
Please help me
Please

There’s also a large probability that he is addressing the listener. He needs help from the listeners in general; he feels alone.

Gambino acknowledges the philosophical idea of Absurdism in the previous line.

In the outro, he gives it an existentialist slant, suggesting that since we all are stuck together we have an obligation to help each other.

He writes it specifically in the form of a personal plea, again symbolizing the conflict of the human condition with that of the mystery of life. We all need help, but Gambino is willing to admit it.

At the very end, you hear pages being flicked through. This symbolizes the beginning of the album’s story in “The Library” and the end of the story here. This is similar to how J. Cole’s Born Sinner and Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city start and end the same.

In the end of the Because the Internet screenplay the boy (the main character) gets shot and the story ends there, the reader doesn’t know whether the boy is still alive or not. This passage may be a hint on the end of the story, the “You’re here now” can be interpreted as the arriving of an ambulance on the crime scene as he begs for help hoping that they’ll save him.

At very end he repeats “It’s when you die”

This relates to the whole trolling idea.

Gambino is telling us this is when “The Biggest Troll” in life occurs, in the most ironic situation, death.
