rocket fuel lyrics - DJ Shadow Lyrics


Singer DJ Shadow
If you were to ask a group of people what "Rocket Fuel" was about, most would say it was a love song. The question is that, "what is it about"? Well, it's a love song about a relationship that fell apart after a very intense, joyous time together. In this article I will attempt to explain the lyrics and what they mean.
"Rocket Fuel" is an amazing song by the legendary rapper, DJ Shadow. It's actually one of his best work because it's full of lyrics that accurately depict how he felt during that point in his life. It's about a young girl and the bigoted, uncaring people who constantly seem to hurt her and destroy her happiness. I think the lyrics are pretty funny because the girl and her family seem so ungrateful, selfish, and obnoxious.
Many people have tried to explain the meaning of "Rocket Fuel" in rap lyrics, but they haven't all been successful. This is the first time I've heard someone explain it properly so I'm going to explain it to you. It's a classic love song that tells a story about how a young, inexperienced woman who just moved into a new place that she never knew about had a great time, even though the house was cold and there were "no places to eat". Everything seemed perfect for her, then the "D.J" showed up and ruined everything. Because of the song's beauty, the girl eventually broke up with him and moved on. Everyone gets hurt in the end, but the true message is that no matter how much you put into a relationship, if it doesn't make you happy, it's worthless.

Ladies and gentlemen
Ladies and gentlemen
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Get ready, y'all
Get ready
Ready, set
Steady, bet

Ready, set
Steady, bet
Get ready
This be the green light, go, tires burn the pavement
People wanna know where Mase, Pos' and Dave went
Still here, still in ya ear
With a style so hot, you'll see where all the sun rays went
Legs, arms, and head all being moved in a frenzy
The blends we all the right cred'
Meaning credentials
Best of both worlds
When we rocking over pearls in the instrumental
Are you ready? (Ready) set? (Set)
Jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Keep it steady (steady), to the let it rock (bet)
Turn it up, we giving a show
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
What you talking 'bout? Space or out your mind?
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
That's a close encounter, of what kind?
I'm a disc jockey
What's a disc jockey?
When it was time to get it lit we got it hot like fever
Sick with the talk, pass to your receiver
All a'bout running the spot
And you know we got breath control so no need to take a breather
Cardio kingpins
Subjugate the dubplate
And you know we can't wait to bring spins
Aced all quizzes, A-plussed the final
Vocals we align' we move it all simultaneously
Over joints, we rock
We earned, thirty years
And you can say we got, three terms
Live off the board, armed like you and your chest men
When you stormed out and you and your yes men
And if the game have veins we'll insert the yeah
Upheaval the ground
'Cause the adrenaline we blend with the sound
Is our thing, we leaving the kings of all crown
So are you ready? (Ready) are you set? (Set)
Then jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Keep it steady (steady), to the let it rock (bet)
Turn it up, yo and peep the flow
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
What you talking 'bout? Space or out your mind?
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
That's a close encounter, of what kind?
Ready, set
Steady, bet
Then jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Turn it up, yo and peep the flow
Are you ready? (Ready) set? (Set)
Jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Keep it steady (steady), to the let it rock (bet)
Turn it up, we giving a show
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
What you talking 'bout? Space or out your mind?
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
That's a close encounter, of what kind?
Ready, set
Steady, bet
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
