XXXTENTACION Train Food: In this track, X raps about the inescapable clutches of death. The song carries an eerie tone featuring a jarring piano and the rumblings of a train station to go along with the sound of thunder and rain.
It seems X is speaking from the point of view of a person who meets a man on his walk home; presumably this man is the personification of Death whom kidnaps our narrator.
The third verse is X’s interpretation of what goes through someone’s mind as they are about to die, what some would call the moment “your life flashes before your eyes.” At the brink of death, people who have been brought back have stated that all your memories play vividly in your head.
The person X could be empathizing with in this song could very well be himself. He was shot and killed on June 18th, 2018 in Deerfield Beach, Florida at just 20 years old.
