Who drains the blood from my head? I do! I do!
Who comes through with the meds? I do! I do!
Blackened seeps you're gonna need these-FREEZE!
The common ancestor, the pressure of industry!
Who sleeps in the grease grease wax & trails of mutual deceit?
I heard that growth was gettin' weak!
Who taps the line? Records my mind?
Twisted agenda align my spine!
Whose got the steeples of people and scepters?
The rocks on the beaches? The angles? The vectors?
Who drains the blood from my head? I do! I do!
Who accepts me as I am? I do! I do!

Relationships are a tool that can fuel the façade over my disguise.
Fulfill my ego. I do what I do with unrelenting compromise.
When it's all on the table, you know I'll be able
to duck, dodge, and run, and hide.
Got a good education in disinformation, adept at constructing lies.

The crack in the staircase I smoked out of boredom!
My kitchen is filled with meat and chloroform!
Squirming colors, metastasize!
Upon viewing the world the fetus eats its own eyes!

Acting the fiction and signing the right away!
Transistor electrocute, wiping the order away!
Awkward offensive-HOLD! Perfectly natural!
They can't speak 'bout my brand because I'm dead and white!
Acting the fiction and signing the right away!
Transistor electrocute, wiping the order away!
Awkward offensive-HOLD! Perfectly natural!
They can't speak 'bout my brand because I'm dead and white!

I'm the one, I'm the one
with my hands around the gun!
I am not afraid, I am not afraid.
I'm the one, I'm the one
with my hands around the gun!
I am not afraid, I am not afraid.
I'm the one, I'm the one
with my hands around the gun!
I am not afraid, I am not afraid.
I'm the one, I'm the one
with my hands around the gun!
I am not afraid, I am not afraid.

So what (I'm the one, I'm the one)
I'll die (with my hands around the gun.)
alone (I am not afraid, I am not afraid.).
So what (I'm the one, I'm the one)
I'll die (with my hands around the gun.)
alone (I am not afraid, I am not afraid.).
So what (I'm the one, I'm the one)
I'll die (with my hands around the gun.)
alone (I am not afraid, I am not afraid.).
So what (I'm the one, I'm the one)
I'll die (with my hands around the gun.)
alone (I am not afraid, I am not afraid.).
So what (I'm the one, I'm the one)
I'll die (with my hands around the gun.)
alone (I am not afraid, I am not afraid.).
So what (I'm the one, I'm the one)
I'll die (with my hands around the gun.)
alone, alright (I am not afraid, I am not afraid.).

Woke up in a new Bugatti,
Then i burned it!
Woke up next to Jodi Arias
In my hood, bitch!
Double it down on all the clowns tryin' to remake DBM!
Man, you crazy!
We started this sound from Sac Town, bitch you best be home by 10!
Curfew bitch!

    General CommentI see the song as kind of a dark and disturbing story: you have a main character realizing how messed up his society is (verse 1: "twisted agenda, align my spine!", "the common ancestor, the pressure of industry"). he realizes how the system is shallow and able to manipulated (verse 2: "relationships are a tool..."), then eventually descends into insanity (verse 3 to the part with the crazed laughter?). it appears to end with suicide (last clean vocals: "I'm the one with my hands around the gun. I am not afraid. So what I'll die alone? all right.") I find those last lines particularly disturbing and heartbreaking, as they sound completely comfortable. "I am not afraid. so what? alright." so that's how I see it. a person in a corrupt society, going insane, and ending with suicide. so yeah. now I feel like I need a hug. from a puppy.

    p.s. I'm not sure what to make of the rap, but I don't think it was intended to make any sense in the song anyway.

    My InterpretationI sat for about an hour analyzing this song. This is what I got. I realize that this explanation is very loosely connected and it is my own explanation. Not the people's who made it.
    There are three main parts to the song;
    1:The first part conveys corruption in the world and themself in that corrupted world.
    2: This is the part that doesnt have any lyrics, its just chaos. I think of it to represent insanity or the chaos of insanity.
    3:This is the part with "Im the one with my hands around the gun" and So what ill die alone all right" and is about about suicide and the acceptance thereof.
    4:The rap. It took me forever to figure out, but, the rap is about conformity. "I woke up in a new Bugatti" is part of a popular song. Earlier in the song a lot of things about human nature or natural things come up. "Common ancestor"/"Awkward offensive hold, pefectly natural" And evolution, which relates to "common ancestor" is all about conformity. And in nature, everything conforms to survive. Conform to the mainstream and you will forget about all the bad and survive, is assentially what I get from the rap part.

    Now this s how it all fits together in my view. (Again this is just my view and it makes the most sense to me) Since part one is how the world is, and cannot change, part 2(insanity), 3(Suicide) and 4(Conformity) are all choices that someone provided with the information in part one can make. But only one can be picked. You cant go insane, commit suicide, then conform. at least in the songs order. And the title "Acceptance Speech" is a reference to that this must be accepted; that being yourself and the world, and choices 3 and 4 is what can happen when you accept it. If you dont accept it, you pick choice 2. I have about two page fulls of possible explanations of the individual song lyrics, and this is what I find fits best. If you have anything to add or something that is flawed with my interpretation, please add onto it or correct me.

    General CommentSomewhere down the line, I get the feeling that the "acceptance speech" is actually an acceptance of suicide, Idk, it's just my take on it.

    General CommentI agree with what doomy said. to me it feels like a recollection or reliving of past sins and just wanting to end it. dwelling on past mistakes can make us hate ourselves. this is why he needs an acceptance speech. to accept himself exactly the way he is.
