    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 CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about the Kim Kardashian and Ray video from reading the lyrics of verse 2.

    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.
