If you was in a pine box
I would surely break the lock
I'd jump right in and fall asleep
Cause you are the death of me
This might seem like a straightforward message of him talking about how much he cares about someone, but really it’s nothing like that at all. He’s using death as symbolism for becoming mainstream or “selling out”.
What’s inside the box is his true self, the one before the fame, the millions. He would rescue his former self if one day “he’s buried alive,” meaning he’ll never let the fame change him or his creativity.
