In one of the coolest publicity moves of all time, Machine Gun Kelly gave us his new music video for “why are you here.” Someone leaked the video and instead of attempting to cover it up, MGK shared the link as well. 

“why are you here” dropped in December and is one of the more rock-influenced tracks of Machine Gun Kelly’s career.

Machine Gun Kelly gave no prior information about when “why are you here” would receive a music video. But, the internet works in mysterious ways and the video was leaked. Machine Gun Kelly noted the leak and decided to share the link for the video as well. 

After sharing some sexually-charged clips about fruit from the video, Machine Gun Kelly asked fans to stream it as much as they could.

The video is a colorfully-charged, action-packed watch about fruit. Nothing else, just good old fruit. Bananas, citrus fruits, cantaloupe, you name it. We see MGK jamming a beautiful pink guitar, and rocking some Oedipus-style eye bandages. Watch the video below.

“why are you here” lyrics

We can never be friends

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m not myself
I’m not myself when you’re around, no
Can’t be helped
We are insane, that’s just the way it goes

I’m a demon in the night, she’s an angel with the white
Told me, “Keep on all the lights, I’ma show you what you like”
Help you put back on your clothes, make sure nothing’s on your nose
Ain’t even tell my closest homies, nobody knows

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

I wanna cry (Wanna cry)
I need to smoke, I’m feelin’ sick inside (Sick inside)
From seein’ you next to a friend of mine
We didn’t speak, but I read your mind
Both tellin’ lies, our alibis didn’t work this time (Didn’t work this time)

I’m a demon in the night, she’s an angel with the white
Told her, “Keep on all the lights, you can show me what you like”
Help me put back on my clothes, make sure nothing’s on my nose
Can’t even tell my closest homies, nobody knows

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
We can never be friends, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, I know that I said I was at home
Okay, yeah, you caught me (Caught me)
I thought that you said you were all alone
Look at you lying

I hate that I saw you again last night (I hate that I saw you again)
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again (And I), we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah)
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
We can never be friends, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
