Kid Cudi - GHOST!

Yeah, whoa whoa
Yeah, whoa whoa
Haha
Yeah
My name is Scott Mescudi
Mmmmmmmmmmmm
Yeah

Gotta get it through my thick head
I was so close to bein' dead, yeah
Life, live it, nobody sell tips
Man, I'm just walkin' without bein' led
See the world is so crazy and filled with such risk
I just know I gotta dodge them
The beginnings are followed by an end
In the in-between time I'm not runnin' or hidin' in
See, things
Do
Come
Around
And make sense eventually
Things
Do
Come
Around
But some things trouble me

The people I met and the places I've been
All will make me the man I so proudly am
But I wanna know one thing
When did I become a ghost?
I'm mostly confused about the world I live in
They think that I'm lonely, well I probably am
One thing that still gets me
When did I become a ghost? Yeah

Na-na-na na-na-na-na whoa whoa whoa haha yeah
Yeah yeah whoa-whoa Yo

Tried to fight it
And soon I gave in
Down a road with no lights on
Can't describe it, and you don't move like them

You've become their worst nightmare
You remember the things that your parents have said
You'd rather find out the hard way
You should tell a friend to tell a friend to tell a friend
I keep with my stroll, I'm not runnin' or hidin' in
See things
Do
Come
Around
And make sense eventually
Things
Do
Come
Around
And some things still trouble me

The people I met and the places I've been
All will make me the man I so proudly am
But I wanna know one thing
When did I become a ghost?
I'm mostly confused about the world I live in
They think that I'm lonely, well I probably am
One thing that still gets me
When did I become a ghost? Yeah

Na-na-na na-na-na-na whoa whoa whoa haha yeah
Yeah yeah whoa-whoa Yo

Mmm-oohh
I hope they understand that I really understand that they don't understand
I hope they understand that I really understand that they don't understand
I really understand that they
I really think I um...
I hope they understand that I really understand that they don't understand... Woah
Listen to me
Whoa-oa-oa
Listen to me
Whoa-oa-oa

Sampling “My Rainbow Life” by The Freak Scene, “GHOST!” is the sixteenth track featured on "Man on The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager". Kid Cudi articulates some acceptance of his internal struggles and lifestyle in this track. Cudi reflects upon his bad habits and how they could have led to his own death in the first verse; considering such a possibility with a positive resolve; determining that abstinence from substances is necessary to avoid a fatal outcome. Presented optimistically (albeit conflictedly,) the chorus gives off the impression of Cudi accepting his vices/demons whilst simultaneously voicing his feelings of alienation to the world around him; likening himself to a “ghost.” Addressing the way in which many people go against their parents’ beliefs in their actions, be it in the abuse of substances or any other life choices; Cudi’s second verse detachedly looks upon what leads up to a relapse and the disregard for the opinions of others. Hoping “that they understand that” he “really understands that they don’t understand” in the song’s outro; Cudi gives off the impression that he understands himself more than anyone else ever could. Kid Cudi reversed the instrumental of this song and later created: “Dennis, Hook Me Up with Some More of This Whiskey!”
