Press the button to begin

Mi ever have mi gun so mi haffi move sharp like mi knife

All my life

Wah happen to you Cobe, some bwoy doh know mi
To how me ruff dem cah believe a grandma grow mi

Four mile mi used to walk guh school, dem know man story?
Ha! Now mi gain up all those glory
The world is mine, the whole a it mi taking slowly
Happy days mi call it now mi bun sad story
Anyway mi deh inna the world mi dawgs dem round mi
Hahaha mi laugh and collect those trophy
Because mi deserve everything weh music gives mi
Bwoy, unruly nuh light like Frisbee
The dream, family live that wid me
Oh, oh, oh, oh
All my life mi dream fi own house, land, cars, and bikes

All my life
I'm in the stakin' bar
I got debts, I'm a debaser
All my life
Saturnz about to make love
And I'm just a heartbreaker
All my life
And I won't get a take in
'Cause I'm out when I'm stakin'
And the rings I am breaking
Are making you a personal day

With the holograms beside me
I'll dance alone tonight
In a mirrored world, are you beside me
All my life?
Distortion

All my life
I'm in the stakin' bar
I got debts, I'm a debaser
All my life
Saturnz about to make love
And I'm just a heartbreaker
All my life
And I won't get a take in
'Cause I'm out when I'm stakin'
And the rings I am breaking
Are making you a personal day

    My InterpretationI personally reckon that this song is likely to do with the growing effect of money on love and lifestyle, talking about how the person with debts is risking their money in the "Stakin' bar" whilst better off people (Saturn being the metaphor) can just live their lives with ease whilst other people in the world are suffering. Also, Popcaan expresses this by talking about (unlikely to be real) dreams of poorer people that want cars and bikes as well as lovers and popularity. If my view on the song is correct, then I think it fits in well with the anti Trump (oligarchy) argument that is discussed in various songs in the album (hallelujah money, let me out etc)

    I dunno though and remain uncertain about the other lyrical meaning in the song. What are your thoughts? Thanks.

    General Commentthe first part talks about a guy who had a very hard and violent life, but raised thanks to his art and started living the dream along with his family.

    the Albarn parts are about a killer for hire, Saturn being a symbol for harvesting (life), and he being a debaser staking and dedicating the night to someone, most likely the man from the first part.

    Maybe right when the Poopcanz character finally got a hard-earnt break in life thanks to his passion and love, his past comes in the form of a cold, self-loathing Damon to take it all away.
