To go it alone or to go with a partner. When you choose a partner you have to have compromises and sacrifices, but it’s a price you pay. Do I want to follow my every whim and desire as I make my way through time and space, absolutely, but at the end of the day do I need someone when I’m doubting myself and I’m insecure and my heart’s failing me? Do I need someone who, when the heat gets hot, has my back?
My chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the dashboard
my chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the radio
suki zuky I’m coming in the Cherokee
gasoline there’s steam on the window screen
take it take it wheels bouncing like a trampoline

“Suki, suki” means “drive, drive” in Arabic. In the music video Saudi Arabian women are driving and aren’t supposed to, so MIA’s saying “suki, suki”. They’re bad girls.
Further, سوقي (suuqii) is in the imperative singular feminine, in a form I think is Saudi colloquial — more formal would be اسوقي. So, it has an additional subtlety of telling a female to drive.
also the term “sooky sooky” has been a mainstay in r&b music and AAVE, so there’s maybe like this double meaning wordplay going on? cool!

I don’t think that people accept the fact that life doesn’t make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable.
A very rare song, in that it needs no words to get across the emotion it’s trying to convey. It moves under your skin and settles into your bones, and if you close your eyes, you can remember the scene it plays to as clearly as though you’re actually watching the film.
If the Battle of Hogwarts were a symphony, Courtyard Apocalypse would be its conductor.
