"Novacane" as written by Christopher A. Stewart, Lamont Derelle Neuble and Christopher Breaux....
I think I started somethin', I got what I wanted
Did didn't I can't feel nothin', superhuman
Even when I'm fuckin' Viagra poppin', every single record autotunin'
Zero emotion, muted emotion, pitch corrected, computed emotion
I blame it on the model broad with the Hollywood smile
Stripper booty and a rack like wow, Brain like Berkeley
Met her at Coachella, I went to see Jigga, she went to see Z Trip, perfect
I took a seat on the ice cold lawn, she handed me a ice blue bong, whatever
She said she wanna be a dentist really badly, she's in school payin'
For tuition doin' porn in the Valley, at least you workin'
But girl I can't feel my face, what are we smokin' anyway
She said don't let the high go to waste, but can you taste a little taste of

Novocaine, baby, baby, Novocaine, baby, I want you
Fuck me good, fuck me long, fuck me numb
Love me now, when I'm gone, love me none
Love me none, love me none, numb, numb, numb, numb

Sink full of dishes pacin' in the kitchen, cocaine for breakfast, yikes
Bed full of women, flip on a tripod, little red light on shootin', I'm feelin' like
Stanley Kubrick, this is some visionary shit
Been tryna film pleasure with my eyes wide shut but it keeps on movin'
I blame it on the model broad with the Hollywood smile
Stripper booty with the rack like wow, I'll never forget ya
You put me on a feelin' I never had, never had, never had
And ever since I've been tryna get it back, pick it up and put it back
Now I'm somethin' like the chemist on campus
But there's no drug around, quite like what I found in you
I still can't feel my face, what am I smokin' anyway
She said don't let the high go to waste but can you taste a little taste of

Novocaine, baby, baby, Novocaine, baby, I want you
Fuck me good, fuck me long, fuck me numb
Love me now, when I'm gone, love me none
Love me none, love me none, numb, numb, numb, numb

Novocaine for the pain

Pretty girls involved with me
Makin' pretty love to me pretty, pity pity
All the pretty girls involved with me
Makin' pretty love to me pretty, pity pity

I can't feel a thing
I can't feel her
Novocaine for the pain

    General CommentMeanings kinda obv. Frank Ocean "lost his emotion" aka hes empty inside and he met a girl who was studying to be a dentist who was doing porn for money and introduced him to chronic and they basc were friends with benefits except he fell for her. she left and hes numb like novacane trying to get the feeling back but it doesnt work

    My InterpretationHe fell in love with the porn star/dentist wannabe and hasn't been able to feel the way he felt with her with anyone else. He tries to use fame, sex, and drugs to forget her, but all it does is numb him...it doesn't really stop the pain through because he has to keep on going back to it. This is really sad and pretty depressing. I can't really enjoy listening to the lyrics, but I can look passed all the hard outside and find the soft inside.

    General CommentIt's a song that links drugs, auto-tune, and sex into one all consuming drive for sedation from the modern world.

    My InterpretationA driving beat with a tragic demise of a girl who wants to numb herself from whatever demons she's wrestling from within herself. The narrator (Frank Ocean) is trying to feel who she is inside but, obviously, she numbs herself (and him also) which acts as a wall from seeing who she really is. Which is a way of saying "Live in the moment." My ten cents. Great song.

    General CommentJuxtaposition between this and the sweetness of Strawberry Swing just before is just sublime.
