Disturbing Billie Eilish song ‘Bury a friend’

To put it plainly, the songs sung by Billie Eilish are depressing. The lyrics and music video have clearly dark elements. She is extremely popular among teens with millions of followers on Spotify, Instagram, and one of the most watched music videos on YouTube.

This sort of “dark imagery” began in the seventies and fifty years later, the devil is in plain sight. Kathy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Miley Cyrus became wildly popular when they included witchcraft and lewd behavior. Billie outdid them all by endorsing demonic elements in her music at 16 years old. Satan no longer hides and kids think its cool.

→ The worst kind of depressive state: Anhedonia

Satan no longer hides and kids think its cool

Shock value in music

The “shock value” in entertainment is no longer shocking. Psychologist Shoshana Dayanim studies the effects of media on kids. She said that when a young child sees satanic imagery, it sees it as a cartoon devil dressed for Halloween. Thus, continuous exposure can desensitize anyone. If unguarded, their worldview becomes that of what they hear and see.

A satanic foothold is in place which may eventually lead to depressive thoughts and suicide, as the video suggests. The enemy also uses Mobile Apps to lure kids into a depressive mindset.

My daughter fought for Billie!

When I was doing this blog, my tween actually cried because she thought I was mean to Billie Eilish. She ignored me and continued to listen to Bille’s songs. After a few months, she sees this new video, “All the good girls go to hell.” Then she tells me profusely how much she “hates” Billie now.

She said, “Dad, you should watch her video, she’s evil, she’s demonic, she even mocked Jesus, I don’t like her anymore.” I told her, “remember, I told you so?” Then she said, “Ill pray for Billie.”

She said, Ill pray for Billie

So what changed her mind? I never impose what music my kids want to listen to, it’s their choice. All I did was to pray that in time, may God reveal to her what she needs to know, and God did.

‘Bury a friend’

[Chorus]
Step on the glass, staple your tongue.
Bury a friend, try to wake up.
Cannibal class, killing the sun.
Bury a friend, I wanna end me.

[Bridge]
For the debt, I owe, gotta sell my soul.
‘Cause I can’t say no, no, I can’t say no.
Then my limbs all froze and my eyes won’t close.
And I can’t say no, I can’t say no.

The song’s meaning

‘Bury a friend’ is literally from the perspective of the monster under the bed. “If you put yourself in that mindset, what is this creature doing or feeling?” Billie said. “The whole album clicked in my head… I immediately knew what it was going to be about, what the visuals were going to be, and everything in terms of how I wanted it to be perceived”.

“It just clicked in my head”

The poetry behind the song is desperation, even suicide with the lyrics “I wanna end me.” The music video itself is depressing. Its message is simple: Life is hopeless. Furthermore, the song’s bridge “gotta sell my soul” is a devilish declaration. Where did all these ideas come from? The Bible is clear, in the last days, many will follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons (1 Timothy 4:1).

‘Bellyache’

Everything I do
The way I wear my noose
Like a necklace
I wanna make ’em scared
Like I could be anywhere
Like I’m reckless

I lost my mind
I don’t mind
Where’s my mind
Where’s my mind

This song has now 200 Million views and counting. Imagine the message it sends to its young audience. Music blog Idolator referred to Bellyache as “sinister synth-anthem that positively seethes fury and frustration. You don’t have to go far to the lyrics.

‘You should see me in a crown’

[Verse]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one

This song was released in August 2018. By April 2019, almost 100 Million have watched the video. There’s no beating around the bush in the imagery of “crown with a cross,” where Satan, using Billie clearly mocks Christ. He tells the world he’s gonna win this battle. No wonder, Jesus tells us to pray for His second coming. The fall of Satan is imminent when Christ returns (Revelation 12:9), and he is desperate and scared as hell.

→ Cartoons that kids should avoid, says popular YouTube videos.

What kids may see as harmless is a depiction of hopelessness and mockery of Jesus. Pray for Billie that she may see the truth. (A video clip image from Billie Eilish’ When the Party’s Over and You Should See me in a Crown.)

Depression and suicide rates are up

Each year, almost 5,000 young people, ages 15 to 24, kill themselves. What surrounds your child affects their mindset. The enemy prowls to devour us (1 Peter 5:8) and kids are an easy target (John 10:10). My teenage son listened to her for a while. He said, “I liked her, she had that smile before but now, she looks depressing. Contrary to songs of hopelessness, we have hope in Jesus.

Pray for Billie

Depression and suicide are clear elements in her brand of music. I sincerely hope that Billie and the rest of those who listen to her will not fall into deep deception. I too have teenage daughters and I want them to be surrounded by things that help them look forward to life with joy and happiness.

In 2017, Billie Eilish at 15 years old had 250,000 followers. The next year, it jumped to 6.3 Million and by April 2019, her Instagram was moving towards a whopping 20 Million followers. This means her influence among tween and teens are far-reaching.

Contrary to Billie Eilish’s songs
of hopelessness, we have hope in Jesus

  1. I am not Christian, but I can clearly see there is something messed up about her, and I still can’t understand why is she that famous and brought on top that fast. Songs are below average, vocals are nowhere to impressive: why can’t we have more of Celin Dion, Adel, Whitney Huston…I am just comparing to female singers.

    • okay, lets start off with NOTHING IS WRONG WITH HER! all she is doing is writing songs, and if you dont like it dont listen to it. i am a huge fan of billie and see something like this i get a lil upset. so keep stuff to yourself so you dont get attacked in the comments. why CANT we have more singers like billie? because “your afraid your child is gonna commit suicide because of billie”? sometimes, its OKAY for your child to be sad. IT IS APART OF LIFE!!! and sometimes depressing music helps. and not all her songs are depressing. here are SOME that arent depressing: copycat, my boy, watch, bad guy and my strange addiction. so if you have a problem with her, dont listen to her. period. i love jesus. i cherish him. but listening to her music IS NOT a sin. and if it is, he died for our sins, so

      • Firstly, something is CLEARLY wrong with her!
        In the same logic you could say that all Hugh Hefner was doing was taking photos of ladies or Hitler was just trying to make a vast empire. You don’t need to read Playboys or follow Hitler but you are still going to be affected by them and their actions on the lives of those around you.
        And no, we don’t need to keep our views or opinions to ourselves, regardless of if you are a fan of her. You will just have to suck it up. Many people loved Hitler too, or Stalin, or even Billie Eilish but that doesn’t make what they do right or even good.
        Who said listening to her music was a sin? Glorifying Satan is… which she seems to like doing.
        But anyways, it doesn’t really matter what I say does it? You will just go on being angry and upset, caps lock yelling at people with different opinions then you, so who cares.

      • Idk how old you are but you sound like you’re twelve in terms of you’re thinking. People have a right to listen or not listen and to write about it, discuss, and find others with like minds. What you do need to consider is two opposing spirits don’t occupy the same space. If you believe and love God, you might want to consider the power that negative music, energy and power has, especially in numbers. It’s just the same as positive in numbers. I don’t think all music is bad or of the devil but you are ignorant to think it can’t be. Something is wrong with her and her energy doesn’t promote goodness or even just connecting when you feel down. Re-evaluate is my thinking. The devil has energy that works hard for the good people. If you consider yourself good, are you giving them a leg up to access you and your goodness?

    • I totally agree with these concerns. Very worrying indeed.

      As a teen I was brainwashed by Madonna. Then I became a mother and realised she is no role model for young girls. So my old fashioned grandmother’s became my role models. Women I admire and respect.

      Many children are suffering from anxiety problems due to State Education pressures. And sadly some children have unhappy home lives. So this young singer is a huge concern.

      But there’s is hope. My daughter has just received funding from our Local Independent Council and Church to teach art therapy to children.Totally child and family friendly.

      Melody Angel Art will bring some meaning and love into our pop industry, world.

      Here is her song Broken Souls. I hope people will take the time to comment and support.

      We do not follow a religion. But I do believe in God and the good that promotes.

    • No she can sing way better than you ever could and if you people haven’t noticed, she’s not permitting suicide she’s actually ending it atleast she helped me not kill my self, and some people have mental issues that’s just how we were born, just like me I have an major anxiety disorder and I have ever since I was 6, not because of Billie, plus Finneas writes her songs not her

  2. Because we’ve already had all those greats. Is is the new generation & back in the 80’s my parents demonized heavy metal. Back in the 50’s my grandparents demonized rock-n-roll.

  3. Quit fear mongering. Love Jesus but don’t shy from anything. She isn’t the devil and we aren’t in end times. I’m soooo sick of people playing this garbage. She’s a talented kid that writes about stories. Maybe you should have your kids in a healthy state of mind where they can listen to music without wanting to kill themselves or become depressed from it. My goodness people are soft these days….

    • She isn’t the devil, but she obviously has demons. Yes we are in the end times. Acts 2:17-‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
      that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams <—- This came to pass in the time of the book of Acts, and it was already being referred to as the last days.

      You said (Maybe you should have your kids in a healthy state of mind where they can listen to music without wanting to kill themselves or become depressed from it.)

      So then you must agree that it is not a “healthy state of mind” for a person to make music videos showing themselves depressed, and wanting to kill themselves? Or as Billie puts it “End themself”.

      People are not “soft these days”, quite the opposite. The Bible already said
      For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, demeaning, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people.
      (2 timothy)

      Wake up! Ask Jesus christ to forgive you of all your sins and surrender your life into His hands fully. Jesus Loves you and wants to save you.

      • You should wake up as well. Song is supposed to be a way of expressing what someone feels. She has depression, that’s why the lyrics are depressed. It’s not her fault she’s popular and people listen to her. All her “demons” are her personal demons. Nothing else. She wants to say what she wants to express. She never told anyone to kill themselves literally.

    • Billie you clearly need to reread your Bible!! As a parent, we are required, expected, held accountable to lead our child/children to Jesus. Not just go hey, do whatever, watch whatever, try whatever, but just love jesus. I’m not saying to be legalistic, but come on…

    • Something is wrong with you, if you think something is not seriously wrong with this girl. I do not denounce that she is a talented female….. but the signs are obvious… something is not right. And yes I do love God and these are the end times….. There are people in this world that do not have to know God or just do not believe in God and can clearly see that something is off about her and the videos she makes. Once again, she is a very unique and talented individual. But please do not be oblivious to the lyrics and the things she does in her videos. This crap is not normal! Stop being ignorant

  4. The girls lyrics are dark and evil. Sure music doesnt always have to be positive and joyful, we dont live in a rainbow world. As long as we can interpret and understand what it is all about we are all ok. The problem with her music is many do not understand it and take it the wrong way. Some may act on it and other just move on. Its not healthy in many ways for the kids that take it the wrong way, especially in these days where life is hard and expectations are high. There definitely is a border and Billie passed it to gain popularity and of course fill her pockets. She can do much better in other ways that are more positive in the way fans interpret her music. Using evil words and images is not the way. I still respect her talent, just not the way she is using them to gain popularity.

    • okay, first of all TONY, she was happier when she wasnt famous. so she didnt want to fill her pockets and it FOR SURE wasnt to gain popularity. you wanna know why SHE HAS TOURETTE SYNDROM. you wanna know why she is depressed? SHE HAS TOURETTE SYNDROM. so dont take her the wrong way. research her before you think “she is dark and evil and wants to fill her pockets” those two things got me the most. so dont ever do that again

    • she bases her songs and music videos off of her nightmares and she makes up fictional characters. she isn’t doing this to become famous or make money, she is doing this because this it what she lives to do: make music.

    • Her lyrics are dark because she has depression, plain and simple. All the demons she’s mentioned are just metaphorical for our personal demons.

    • yes because the lyrics “i dont need a xanny to feel better” is so dark. Oh and you cant forget
      “You see a piece of paper
      Could be a little greater
      Show me what you could make her
      You’ll never know until you try it
      Hmm, hmm
      And you don’t have to keep it quiet” that entire song just screams SATAN.

  5. Clearly, this “artist” is promoting demons. Playing her music might actually call up demons with little interest in human health– sort of like Oiji boards– which seem harmless enough on one level — but might, in fact, be opening a etheric portal of some sort for demons. I would avoid eilish “music” just as I might avoid having that third beer.

  6. i mean, yeah she has some issues but some of the examples used here are taken completely out of context:
    the words taken from Bury a Friend are about the toxic state of the music industry
    “i gotta sell my soul” is referring to literally selling her soul to the devil, but actual selling her “soul” to the music industry to become a star.
    instead of fear mongering and spreading words that may not necessarily be the while truth, do some Googling and try understand the lyrics more, it may help you understand why people of our generation enjoy her music, its not demonic – simply a sobering polical reality in a catchy tune

  7. I listened to her songs several times.
    Every time I listened, I felt more hopeless.
    At first I thought maybe I was too upset, But after my happiest moments, I listened to them again and the same thing was repeated.
    Gradually my mind became more and more involved to figure out why this is happening.
    Why this girl is so depressed?
    Why is she dressed like that?
    What is the reason behind all these scary and frustrating sentences and scenes in her poems and clips?
    Although her fans are young and teenagers who should be full of joy and hope!
    And now all the answers are clear!
    If she is not a satanism, surely she is at least pretending to be satan and that’s not a good sign.
    I am 23 years old and luckily I can understand that these are not just a song and a clip and there are other purposes beyond that.
    In order to the new generation to become completely to eliminate religion and to commit suicide and despair.
    And lastly, I am a Muslim and I love Jesus.
    I hope that one day families and all the youths and teens of the world will be aware of this and get rid of all these deviations‌ and the light of faith in God and Jesus will shine in their hearts.

    • Hii, did you ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior and forgiveness for your sins? He is the real light and more than a prophet, he loves you!

  8. Thank goodness ! Took me a long time to find a critical article of this monstrosity. I fear to witness the depravity this culture shall sink into, and still they will applaud. I am so grateful for the christian perspective and presence at this moment in time. I have never been religious, am 41 and have just started reading the bible for the first time. I am finding a whole lot of sense in the christian worldview right about now.
    I have been well aware of the material and horror show young ladies , or you know what , I’ll call them what they are little girls, children. The family friendly, cutesy, Disney character > overnight, violent transformation > breathing blow up doll whore pattern repeating again and again…was quite enough….but this morbid, Luciferian, sixteen year old… to be honest I only stumbled upon her today and I am horrified. Is very reminiscent of that movie called the Exorcist but obviously 2.0. My goodness, what are the parents thinking??
    It troubles me to the bone so it does. Billie. I have nothing against the artist. Everyone should know that she has been selected, promoted and styled FROM THOSE WHO CONTROL US USING CULTURE AS A TOOL and this is what they want our childrens heads to be pollute with , as if there is not enough to be doing that already. I am sooo angry!
    Thank you for your article.

    • Ha ha, careful Kelly. Not going with the flow of society will get you “attacked” in the comments by caps lock “ANGRY” and “RAGING” fans! Ha ha :).
      And yes… it is really sad how far and how fast this world is heading towards darkness: Matthew 24:10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

      And how they defend their Idols…

  9. Jane listen girl they thought we were in the end times during the writing of the letters to the church that was over 3000 years ago and we’re still here aren’t we and what does Billie Eilish have anything to do with the second coming of Christ lol it seems to me you are being too overprotective of the generation you have no understanding of, and btw have you seen billie’s interviews she is very “Down to earth” and her lyrics aren’t to be perceived as what they say but have a different meaning and that’s quoted from Billie

  10. y’all actually stupid. if you watched any videos of billie eilish she’s really sweet. yeah, her lyrics might be dark but that’s her style. y’all need to stop hating on a talented 17 year old while you are all like 40 concerned. when you were 13 were you making songs? no. so don’t hate on billie because it just makes you look like clowns.

  11. this whole article makes me laugh. there’s false information, and billie is not being used by satan. they are just lyrics. and it doesn’t send bad messages to kids or teens. I have mental health issues as do a lot of others who listen to her music. instead of her songs making it worse, they make us feel better knowing that someone else has been through the same thing. her songs are like a coping mechanism and listening to them feels like im getting a giant hug. her songs make us happy, they don’t make us worship satan, or make us depressed or suicidal.

  12. Just shocked at her very last song
    Good Girls go to hell
    Is very disturbing and straight forward satanic
    She is not the devil but satan is using her big time to get the souls of o many young people. It’s very sad to see this happening before your eyes
    My kids really liked her music however I have been taking to them about my concerns with her music. Now that this new song is out I am really reinforcing to them how risky it is for them to listen to this kind of music. Hopefully they will hear me.

  13. This is so dramatic. Some parents need to stop reading into shit. Like I get how it sounds, but stop jumping to conclusions. Not everything dark is about religion. Hell i am christian and can see this. Just raise your kids properly so they know not to mix music and emotions. Kids these days have their own world going on and parents cant understand half of it because they don’t live in it. You can monitor but do it reasonably and dont go to crazy with the conclusions.

  14. So-called Christian piety from the ignorant bigots here disgusts me.
    You will all go to hell in a climate inferno, begging on your knees for ‘God’ to save you and your families.
    Let’s see who gets her first: the Climate Change weather catastrophe, or Jeepers.
    Let’s see who has the answers: scientists or the Big Baboo.

  15. I honestly think there’s something wrong with Billie and her brand. Whether she’s a devil worshipper or just using dark imagery to express herself makes no difference. She is Promoting it, and that’s what’s wrong. Especially because many of her supporters are still so young. The visuals, the lyrics & the actual songs can get very depressing and even satanic. There’s no denying her talent and influence. But, nothing good can come out of young people(people of all ages actually) listening to music about “selling your soul” and using random, shocking and demonic ideas to express themselves. We should seriously pray for this next generation.

  16. bill eyelash could summon the devil and i wouldn’t see a problem
    i hate her and her music because it’s quite overrated and bland, but if supporting her makes annoying christians angry then i guess i will

  17. It’s pretty obvious we are in the generation of vipers and I don’t pray for Tares! Discernment is crucial. Billie Ellish was given to Satan at birth. All kids should avoid this music indoctrination!
