Barrelin' down the line Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

He uses a little baseball imagery here, as “barreling down the line” is a common phrase to describe a baserunner sprinting at full speed towards the catcher — something that the MLB has since outlawed

This symbolizes an uncontrollable pursuit of something, which in this case represents the direction and intensity of their relationship.

This line is reminiscent of the age-old physics paradox: What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

I pull the shades down
It's all the same nowadays anyway
Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

This returns to the first verse where he mentions being woken up by the sunlight coming through his bedroom window. He is now awake and lowers the blinds to shade himself from the sun.

Metaphorically, this shows that he is aware of the flaws in the relationship, but chooses to ignore them.

6 o'clock in the morning and the sun is burning
A black hole through the sheets, at least give me a warning
Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

Sunlight is coming in through the window in the early morning, waking him up too soon. Though he tries to hide under the covers, they offer little protection from the bright sunlight.

This may symbolize a glaring realization of a flaw in the relationship that he is trying to ignore.

My rhymes's stuck on ya like scars Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

He uses a scar simile to describe how his songs get stuck in your head. Boots has you repeating his lines long after you’ve listened to the song.

Winter Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

As the title suggests, this song parallels seasons with stages in a relationship. Winter is the coldest season, symbolizing the tension and hard times between them.

Note the other seasonal symbolism. While autumn and spring are brought up throughout, the lack of summer — the time most representative of happiness and good times — shows that they are constantly heading into (autumn) or getting out (spring) of the bad times, but never experiencing prolonged satisfaction.

Said she hadn't had a bite to eat and I bought it
That's when she tightened up the leash to my wallet
Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

By buying her this meal, the girl now knew that she could get him to buy her more things — metaphorically having it on a leash.

Also note the wordplay, as “bought” could mean falling for her scheme of getting him to pay for her, or literally buying her the meal.

Now we ain’t saying she’s a gold digger, but…

That's 32 and I didn't even mention one motherfuckin' car Autumn (Lude I) by Boots (Ft. Kelela) 2

Mainstream rap is known for its constant references to “money, cars, clothes and hoes”, but Boots is not like your average rapper/singer. His 32 bar verse didn’t mention cars or any other material object.

LB D.J. Williams | 1-year, Bears 2014 Free Agency Tracker by NFL

Williams was placed on Injured Reserve after tearing his pectoral muscle in week 6 last season. He was having a very solid year as Brian Urlacher’s replacement before the injury, contributing 2 sacks, 19 tackles and one forced fumble in six games — four of which he started.

The 32 year old veteran will look to pick up where he left off early last season. Terms of the deal are currently undisclosed, but expected to be less than his one-year contract in 2013 where he made $1,328,000.
