Just from the short clip fans knew it was going to be a smash, and Billie has definitely brought back her dark Indie/pop vocals we’ve missed so much.

Promising it would not disappoint, Billie’s brother Finneas said before its release: “I’m so excited for this one. You are not ready.”

And we were not ready – 'Therefore I Am' is just classic Billie, and the lyrics will be in your head in an instant.

But what do they mean? Here's a breakdown:

Billie is giving us all a philosophy lesson with her new song ‘Therefore I Am’, as the famous statement was coined by philosopher René Descartes.

If we’re going really deep into the meaning, the statement basically demonstrates the fact you can’t doubt that you exist because you’re the one having that doubt.

But in the context of Billie’s new banger she’s singing about not giving a damn about what people think about her, which is reason 16465 of why we love her so much.

In the music video for 'Therefore I Am', Billie is running around an empty shopping mall with a pretzel, helping herself to slush puppies and Chipotle, aka every young person’s dream, proving she marches to the beat of her own drum and won’t let anyone tell her otherwise!

The 18-year-old has spoken about a number of her song meanings in the past, so she’ll likely share an insight into her and Finneas' thought process at a later date, in which case we’ll update this page immediately for more of a delve into the workings of their brains!

What are the lyrics to ‘Therefore I Am’ by Billie Eilish?

I’m not your friend or anything

Damn, you think that you're the man

I think, therefore, I am

I'm not your friend or anything

Damn, you think that you're the man I think, therefore, I am

Stop, what the hell are you talking about?

Get my pretty name outta your mouth

We are not the same with or without

Don't talk 'bout me like how you might know how I feel

Top of the world, but your world isn't real Your world's an ideal

So go have fun

I really couldn't care less

And you can give 'em my best, but just know

I'm not your friend or anything

Damn, you think that you're the man

I think, therefore, I am

I'm not your friend or anything

Damn, you think that you're the man

I think, therefore, I am

I don't want press to put your name next to mine, we're on different lines

So I wanna be nice enough, they don't call my bluff

'Cause I hate to find

Articles, articles, articles I'd rather you remain unremarkable

Got a lotta interviews, interviews, interviews

When they say your name, I just act confused

Did you have fun?

I really couldn't care less

And you can give 'em my best, but just know

I'm not your friend or anything

Damn, you think that you're the man

I think, therefore, I am

I'm not your friend or anything

Damn, you think that you're the man

I think, therefore, I am

I'm sorry, I don't think I caught your name

I'm sorry, I don't think I caught your name

I'm not your friend or anything (I'm not your friend)

Damn, you think that you're the man (They can try to)

I think, therefore, I am (Damn)

I'm not your friend or anything (Friend, Damn)

Damn, you think that you're the man (You're the man)

I think, therefore, I am
