  • This is called My Blood, and I wanna explain one of the verses

  • It means a lot to me.

  • This song is... I guess you could wrap it up and say it's about family.

  • But more specifically; there's this story that

  • when I was younger I had some older cousins

  • that lived in Michigan,

  • and I always looked up to them because they were older and cooler.

  • And, umm...

  • there was this story where the, umm...

  • the younger brother (of my cousins)

  • was kind of a loud mouth, got into a lot of trouble,

  • very cocky.

  • And his older brother, who also played football with him, was much more quiet.

  • Didn't talk a lot.

  • And, it got to the point where...

  • the younger cousin was running his mouth so much...

  • the rival high school football team showed up to his house.

  • So in this song I talk about...

  • people at the end of your driveway, calling out your name.

  • It's in reference to the story because

  • what happened is

  • the older cousin, who was always very quiet, kept to himself...

  • No one knew that he was a black belt.

  • [laughs]

  • And he went on to the end of the driveway and he took care of business

  • And so, that story was stuck with me.

  • You know, defending your family, sticking up for them.

  • And, as I was writing this song, I was thinking about, if I were in that position...

  • if I had to go defend my family

  • I realized...

  • I would probably need a weapon, so I'm gon-

  • [laughs]

  • so I'm gonna introduce a bat into this story.

  • Because my soft hands probably wouldn't be able to punch anyone (?) in the face

  • When everyone

  • you thought you knew

  • deserts your fight,

  • I'll go with you.

  • You're facing down

  • a dark hall.

  • I'll grab my light

  • and go with you

  • I'll go with you,

  • I'll go with you,

  • I'll go with you.

  • Surrounded and

  • up against a wall

  • I'll shred them all,

  • and go with you.

  • When choices end,

  • you must defend.

  • I'll grab my bat,

  • and go with you,

  • I'll go with you,

  • I'll go with you,

  • I'll go with you, yeah.

  • Stay with me,

  • no.

  • You don't need to run, stay with me,

  • my blood.

  • You don't need to run.

  • Stay with me,

  • no.

  • You don't need to run, stay with me,

  • my blood.

  • If there comes a day

  • people posted up at the end of your driveway

  • they're calling for your head and they're calling for your name,

  • I'll bomb down on them, I'm coming through.

  • Do they know I was grown with you?

  • if they're here to smoke know I'll go with you.

  • Just keep it outside, keep it outside, yeah.

  • Stay with me, no.

  • You don't need to run, stay with me,

  • my blood.

  • You don't need to run.

  • Stay with me, no.

  • You don't need to run,

  • stay with me, my blood.

  • You don't need to run.

  • Oh, oh.

  • You don't need to run.

  • Oh, oh.

  • You don't need to run.

  • Oh, oh.

  • You don't need to run.

  • Oh, oh.

  • If you find yourself

  • in a lion's den,

  • I'll jump right in,

  • and pull my pin,

  • and go with you,

  • I'll go with you,

  • I'll go with you,

  • I'll go with you,

  • my blood I'll go with you.

  • Stay with me,

  • no.

  • You don't need to run,

  • stay with me, my blood.
