316, 316, 316 ways to kill the industry 316 Ways by Murs

316 is a number that Murs uses frequently throughout his music. This is because it holds a special meaning for him. As stated by Murs in the song “20 Answers”:

It’s my birthday, fool: 3-16
Plus the formula for the every rap song that you sing

Plus, rap songs usually consist of 3 verses each made out of 16 bars. Finally, “John 3:16” is also one of the most widely quoted verses from the Bible:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life

Murs may be using this in a sarcastic way. The verse talks about being given everlasting life, yet the industry is being “killed.”

I'm trying to find the happiness that couples claim to be
But it's hard to balance loving when you busting over beats
Sounds strange but it's hard to explain it over beats
In the lab daily rocking two or three shows a week
Going mad crazy stressing over press and your release
Trying to please labels while you keep your rep up in the streets
At the same time trying to breath

Please don't take it personal
But I gotta go and work some more
And I know deep down it hurt ya soul
But I'm a blue collar worker, girl(2x)
Blu Colla Worker by Blu

This hook summarizes the entire song. Females that are in a relationship with Blu want more attention from him ,but he can’t because he is constantly working on his rapping career or at a job.

The last line “But i’m a blue collar worker, girl” is a play on the word blue. Blu is his rapper name and a Blue collar worker is reference to a citizen that is a member of the working class. Blue collar Workers typically do manual or physical labor.
