They clearly yellin ‘duck
From the right and the left
He can’t hear
Both his ears on a double date with deaf
They are telling him to duck away from the bullets, but he can’t hear them out of either ear.
Also notice the word play on death and deaf (as in he can’t hear)
Note that “They clearly yellin' duck” is repeated twice, panned through the right speaker and once through the left speaker.
