Disturbing Billie Eilish song ‘Bury a friend’
To put it plainly, Billie Eilish songs are depressing. Her lyrics and video have dark elements, even mocking Christ. 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.

Shock value in music
The “shock value” in entertainment is no longer shocking. When I was doing this blog, my tween actually cried because she thought I was being mean to Billie Eilish. It took a lot of explaining to convince her that elements in Billie Eilish’s music are troublesome. 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.
Continuous exposure to this type of music can desensitize. 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.

‘Bury a friend’
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.
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).

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
Music blog Idolator said this song is a “sinister synth-anthem that positively seethes fury and frustration. You don’t have to go far to the lyrics. Depression and suicide are clear elements. But what’s really problematic is that this song has now 200 Million views and counting. Imagine the indoctrination and the subliminal message it sends to its young audience.
‘You should see me in a crown’
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.

Depression and suicide rates are up
Each year, almost 5,000 young people, ages 15 to 24, kill themselves. Understanding your child’s mindset is an important key, but when kids see their parents as a threat, we will not know what lurks in their mind. Our enemy prowls to devour us (1 Peter 5:8) and your kids are an easy target. (John 10:10). Contrary to Billie Eilish’s songs of hopelessness, we have hope in Jesus.
