    Everybody getting these theories backwards. In this song it isn't about Quad missing his dead mother. It's about DEAD Quad missing his ALIVE mother.
    The album is titled "I didn't mean to haunt you" and homie is legit dressed like a damn ghost. WAKE UP PEOPLE. It's a unique take on a song about losing a family member from a reversed perspective. The lines "I've been in so many tears... I've been in so many prayers... etc." It's literally about him having to witness people mourn his death while he's a ghost. And if that wasn't enough for you, he also says, "I got new birthday to celebrate" This is his birth into the afterlife, also referred to as rebirth by many. Still not enough for you? He deadass says, "I've been trying to unsee how you moved on from me." He's watching his mother move on from mourning his death.
    The main chorus of "I wasn't born yesterday, I think you're goddamn lying" is about him watching his mother cope with his death and pretend she is okay. But Quadeca isn't stupid, he knows his mother is hurting and he knows that she is lying to herself and everyone else. This isn't me grasping at straws either he legit says, "You said it happened for a reason, I swear to God, I think you're goddamn lying". He knows that his mother isn't okay. But he still has to watch her mourn his death from the great beyond.

      Blink 182 has a song with this perspective of ppl not being able to cope with the writers lost of life. It’s called not now.

    You know I didn't expect to see the perspective of someone that passed away rather than the perspective of someone who is mourning a loss. "I didn't mean to haunt you" is literal. He is watching as his mother mourns and tries to move on, but is struggling to. This is amazingly produced and such clever writing. Full props to you Quad.

      @Lemee Adams that’s actually wild because i love that song lol. but i don’t think it’s the same thing? this song is portrayed as he’s already dead. but that song i believe is like reflecting on life and death. when she’s like “waiting for the call from beyond, waiting for something with meaning to come through soon” makes me say that

    Never been a Quadeca fanboy, fucked with his videos thought his music was okay/mediocre, but now. Now I am a Quadeca groupie this song is incredible, video amazing. No complaints pure magic. Finally a creator that has a valid excuse to being dormant for awhile. Well worth it. Bravo Bejamin bravo, and thank you for this.

      @Bailey Literally nobody agrees with you. I think every second of this song is necessary. I genuinely have no idea where you’re coming from with that take. This is the very first negative comment I’ve seen out of thousands.

    • Bailey
      Bailey 3 days ago +5

      It’s an awful song. It was intentionally stretched out over 6 minutes and made as experimental as possible, but more experimental doesn’t= better. The music video was very good, fantastically shot, but the song? Some decent lyrics, but some very poor ones. Interesting themes throughout as well, but there is just no cohesive elements to the track which lets it all down. It’s extremely messy and not in a way which improves the song. Take Kanye- Runaway for example, that’s a 9 minute track that uses up every second of its runtime. It’s different and unique but everything feels like one and it all needs to be there, this track doesn’t provide that same concept.

    Holly shit. I’m at a loss for words right now. The production is top tier, but that’s nothing new coming off of From Me To You, and what a chillingly beautiful introduction this was into I Didn’t Mean To Haunt You.
    This really struck a cord with me. I can’t even begin to imagine just how much time, effort, and passion went into this project, but I can tell you that I’m eagerly anticipating the next single and/or the final album release.
    What an incredible song. I smell another 10/10 album on the way!

    Not gonna lie, didn't quite catch it at first but going over it again and again and this music video is so awesome. Just the whole narrative and the way it is pursued is so beautiful. Quadeca, my man you have taken this to another level. I am so in love with this song. Props to you my man.

    I really respect how much time thoughts trial and error goes into the videos and songs really makes me keep coming back to quadeca time and time again for example FMTY has been out for the longest time yet I still listen to it daily because of the quality you can really feel the lyrics and the background noises

      @R You overpaid for some trash headphones then. Oh my$300 Sonys I can hear all vocals perfectly clear.

    • R
      R 4 days ago

      @SpARrow I get that, but if that's the case, use reverse vocals, don't even use actual words, make it abstract. Because when you use actual words you want to hear them. They can be ghostly and still have clarity. Run it through a high pass filter to give it that reverby phone in the bathroom sound.

    • SpARrow
      SpARrow 4 days ago

      @R I can hear them really well on ATMX40, maybe that is just me. Though, that does seem to be the idea, as the song is about a ghost/spirit spectating his mother grieving his death, and he is desperate to get out and be with her again. The vocal mixing at times is meant to be lower to represent the idea of his spirit trying to make noises to the real world, hence all the old electronic equipment, which usually is attributed with weird haunting (electronic haunting)
      That is just my take

    I feel like the evolution of his sound and production quality is incredible, nothing short of amazing. I just miss the word play, I miss ignorant Quadeca - Who would've thought - That damn KSI Diss track. Just raw talent, I love his evolution, but if Quad could drop something reminiscent of the past, it would be incredible.

    This song was amazing. You can hear his thoughts spiralling and the pain in his voice towards the start, trying to come to terms with it all, the disconnect between some of the melodies and the instrumental, mirroring the distance now between them. Then the moment he comes to terms with his emotions, realising how much he needed her, the laughing when she went away turns to crying, and the regret settles in. Truly one of the greatest artists and songs i’ve ever listened to. I’m excited to see more of your journey quad. It means so much to me and many others, thank you.

      @Whatever I already had Convict liked. Doozy already shows a bunch of improvement. I'd say maybe rap a little bit louder (not raise your voice's volume digitally, actually rap louder) but that's about it for now. Every other aspect of growth should come from yourself. Keep it up

    Awesome, like the vibe u have been going with Quadeca!! Also, I'm loving the little references to the Beatles!! Nice to see u paying homage to one of the Greats / GOATS! Keep it up brother!! 🔥🔥
    I would like to hear Quadeca on a track with the Beatles!!!! Like with an instrumental containing some Vocal and/or melody Samples from The Beatles!! Other than the backing vocals of the Beatles in this song ("U want her, u need her, and yet u dont believe her....." Beatles Lyric Cont. - "When she says her love is dead, u dont believe her"). It would be a hit 💽💿 if u were on the track with them!! It would definitely be sick if u did a more deliberate and obvious collab like that!!🎙🎧
    Even I've been looking for a good /better than avg beat with good samples of the Beatles for months (off & on)... I have a couple that are decent sounding by themselves, but because the sampling was done to the Maximum, i have trouble finding a pocket/cadence i want to keep..... 🎼🎼

    personally, I love the song quadeca, the production is incredible and is a strong vocal point of your music recentely. My only critique would be some moments in the song where the vocals would become way too distorted, in my prefernece the distortion was sufficient and the overly glitchy vocals kind of threw off the vibe a bit. but of course that affect you added could pertain to a deeper meaning to the song, absoultely loved the end of the song though! if the vocals were a bit more clear and sharp I feel as it would benefit the pleasurable aspect of listening to the song adding replay value. I'm ready for the album quad, excited what you have in store for us!

    The Videography of this Music video is insane, I could tell the way this video was shot and constructed wasn't put into random order or anything like that. There was thought behind every scene and shot that was shown. And I love it. I'm not a huge Film guy/know a lot about filming but I can tell when effort and thought was really put into something like the music video and the music itself.
    Good job Quadeca man, I remember first hearing your name when you made a diss against KSI, and back then when I was younger I thought you might of been one of those people who are just clout chasing and didn't care about the art of music at all. But after listening to one of your past works (Album: Voice Memos) and a couple others. I realised your were more than I thought you were, and that you did have passion and care for the art of music. I am very happy for your success so far, keep it up man. People like you always inspire me when it comes to making music and having passion behind it. 😇❤
