"Khaos x4" is a song by Poppy. It served as the first single and bonus track released from I Disagree (more), the deluxe edition of I Disagree, and is the thirteenth track on the album. It was released on July 28th, 2020, coinciding with the announcement of the deluxe edition.

Background

On July 23rd, 2020, Poppy posted a 9-second snippet of the song to social media with the caption "TUESDAY".[1]

Theme

"Khaos x4" contains themes of paranoia, isolation and apocalypse, comparable to "Don't Go Outside".

"This was written midway through the process of making I Disagree, but when we were doing the tracklisting this one stuck out to me as not fitting with the overall picture of the album. I feel like this track is more relatable for me now, and my fans are more ready for it given what I've already shared with them." - Poppy in an interview with Apple Music[2]

It may also double as a reference to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and the general state of the world when the song was released. The song shows a spiral into a chaotic mind, as the lyrics explore being suspicious of everyone around oneself and feeling as if death is approaching.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Here we go

[Chorus]
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos
Chaos, chaos, chaos
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos
I'm happy that the world is gonna end

[Verse 1]
What's wrong with you? You don't know the truth
Do you get the feeling someone's after you?
It's a tragedy, you will never see
Everyone around you is a casualty (Casualty)

[Chorus]
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos
Chaos, chaos, chaos
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos
I'm happy that the world is gonna end

[Verse 2]
I'm watching you, watching every move
Now they're closing in, there's nothing you can do
If you're still alive when the music dies
Tell me if the screaming has you terrified (Terrified)

[Refrain]
If I pick up all the pieces
I'll put myself at ease
Looks like I just have to find a reason
If I die while I'm asleep
I tried my best to find my peace
It's just a dream, it's not that hard to see
Can't you see?
I might die

[Chorus]
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos
Chaos, chaos, chaos
Chaos, chaos, chaos, chaos
I'm happy that the world is gonna end

[Refrain]
If I pick up all the pieces
I'll put myself at ease
Looks like I just have to find a reason
If I die while I'm asleep
I tried my best to find my peace
It's just a dream, it's not that hard to see
Can't you see?
