"Hell of a Life" as written by Tony White, Sylvester Stewart, Terence Butler, Anthony Iommi, John(ozzy Osbourne and William Ward....
I think I just fell in love with a porn star
Turn the camera on, she a born star
Turn the corners in a foreign car
Call the coroners do the C.P.R.
She gave that old nigga an ulcer
Bitter sweet taste made his gold tooth ache (uh)
Make a knee shake, make a priest faint (uh)
Make a nun cum, make her cremate (uh)
Move down town cop a sweet space (uh)
Livin' life like we on a sweep stakes (what)
We headed to hell for heaven's sakes (huh)
Well I'ma levitate, make the devil wait (yeah)

Have you lost your mind
Tell me when you think we've crossed the line
No more drugs for me
Pussy and religion is all I need
Grab my hand and
Baby we'll live a hell of a life

Never in your wildest dreams
Never in your wildest dreams
In your wildest
You can hear the loudest screams
Comin' from inside the screen
You a wild bitch
Tell me what I gotta do to be that guy
Said her price go down, she ever fuck a black guy
Or do anal, or do a gang bang
It's kinda crazy, that's opposite the same thing
Well I guess a lot of niggas do gang bang
And if you run trains, we all in the same game
Run away slaves all on a chain gang
Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang

Have you lost your mind
Tell me when you think we've crossed the line
No more drugs for me
Pussy and religion is all I need
Grab my hand and
Baby we'll live a hell of a life

One day I'm gon' marry a porn star
We'll have a big ass crib and a long yard
We'll have a mansion and some fly maids
Nothin' to hide, we both screwed the brides maid s
She wanna roll play, 'till I roll over
I'ma need a whole day, at least roll doja
What party is we goin' to on Oscar day
Especially if she can't get that dress form Oscar Day
Laurenta, they wouldn't rent her, they couldn't take the change
That's a dress of her back and told her get away
How can they say they live they life wrong
When you never fuck wit' the lights on
(fuck wit' the lights, fuck wit' the, wit' the lights on)
(fuck wit' the lights, fuck wit' the, wit' the lights on)
(fuck wit' the lights, fuck wit' the, wit' the lights on)
(fuck wit' the lights, fuck wit' the, wit' the lights on)
(fuck wit' the lights, fuck wit' the, wit' the lights on)
(fuck wit' the lights, fuck wit' the, wit' the lights on)

Have you lost your mind
Tell me what you think, we've crossed the line
No more drugs for me
Pussy and religion is all I need
Grand my hand
Baby we'll live a hell of a life

I think I fell in love with a porn star
And got married in the bathroom
Honeymoon on the dance floor
And got divorced by the end of the night
That's one hell of a life

    General Commenthonestly, whats impressed me most with this album is how catchy every song is. the lyrics are a bonus..and so far without actually checking them, i've heard a step brothers reference and a tiger woods knock. so good.

    but, this is by far my favorite. its proof that being a good hip hop artist is more than just having the ability to autotune your way through a chorus. textbook.

    @jonatron, going hard is an understatement. so good.

    General CommentThis is just the continuation of mankind falling apart, losing values. Whats good is bad, and whats bad is good. The worst part? I like the song, and I'm a woman...talent takes over sometimes. Lol

    General CommentIts about society falling apart and the person who is doing all of these things is just a product of a screwed up society. and the last line i think he is saying its all a lie and that people only see what they want to see and ignore the truth. The last line may also mean that the whole illuminati thing is a lie cause the song can have an alternate meaning that its not a story but kanye talking about himself.

    General CommentIn this song, the "Twisted" and "Fantasy" aspects of the album title collide, where Kanye talks about falling in love with and marrying a pornstar.

    In the final stanza, he reveal that he never really married her in a traditional sense, but rather had a one-night stand.

    General Commentthis song is amazing... but so is the whole album. I think it's about being what you want to be and loving life, really

    General CommentEverybody's interpreting this on a way too basic level.

    The line "How could you say they live they life wrong When you never fuck with the lights on" is saying you don't know a person until you walked in their shoes. How can you say being a pornstar is wrong if you've never tried it? If you've never fucked with the lights (cameras etc.) how do you know its so demoralizing and terrible.

    General CommentTo me he says "Pussy YOUR religion is all I need" - not "... AND religion..."

    It makes much more sense in the context of the song, too
