“Anima vestra” is a Latin phrase meaning “your soul/your spirit.” The song discusses the rapper’s unfortunate life and how he doesn’t want to die because of his love for life and his passion for his music. The first verse of the song begins with the words, “Anima vestra manet ?” which translates to “Do you live your life?
The chorus is repeated five times in total throughout the song, each time followed by a different final line.
In XXXTentacion’s song, he is telling us that our lives are worth living and that we have to enjoy every moment of them while we can.
The Latin phrase ‘animus vestri’ means ‘your soul’, but the acronym for anima vestra is A.V., which could stand for avant-garde, or album vendo. Either way, anima vestra is referring to his girlfriend who he’s willing to spend eternity within this song.
The song starts off with XXXTentacion talking about the flaws of people and how they don’t see the world for what it is. XXXTentacion talks about how he doesn’t want to kill his own kind. He then goes on to talk about having a lot of friends who are killed by their own kind. He talks about all his homies, dead by their own hand, and how that’s not what he wants for himself.
XXXtentacion’s lyrics in his song “anima(e) vestra” are alluding to mental health issues that he has experienced. The Latin translation of anima(e) vestra as “your spirit” seems very appropriate because it could be interpreted as XXXtentacion is trying to overcome his mental health issues and heal himself with the help of music.
However, in context, the speaker seems to be advocating that the most valuable thing we have is a soul without which we are not ourselves. Without it we are not free.”
Here is the Lyrics of This Song
“I spoke to the devil in miami, he said everything would be fine”
It will all be over soon
And I’m always where the
Sun don’t shine, the tears don’t show
Won’t hurt me now ’cause heart’s been broke
I hate myself, but it won’t show
I constantly lose all my remorse
And it’s 10 for the wolf and three for the shepherd
And it’s one for the sheep who led by your leopard
Often gave his perception as a handle of the weapon
Took a bite of your apple, give me all you can offer
Now I’m trapped in a changing maze, setting my soul ablaze
Couldn’t control the pace, where is this going?
Hey, heartless is recklessness, it’s the word of a pacifist
To the word of a masochist, I’m off of the map
My Lord, I spoke to a Baphomet, he said he would save me
If I gave him one thing he needed, “What is this thing?”, I pleaded
Boy, it’s the key to even
And as I spoke, my fangs were shown
Taken aback, he smiles and tells me
“What you crave will soon be yours
But what I crave is already mine”
