Kanye West: All of the Lights Meaning
All of the Lights Lyrics
anonymous Mar 27th 2011, 02:12 report
He is talking about the road to fame and how you reach fame which is through all of the lights hence the reference if you want it you can get it for the rest of your life. You perform gigs at clubs, parties, studio, and even television. Then with time hit Hollywood and you're a household name: your popular. But once you become famous you're in the news and your life is under a magznifiying glass and its about him because he did something, the taylor swift incident, and then he left the music scene for a short time: that why he says I did my time and spent that bread. He returned and he was replaced by other people like Drake and lil Wayne, so he had work his way back to the top.

Do research boys its all about inlighenment smh those who dont see it wont see it ever because like Kanye said and i quote he "didnt brain wash he washed you brain" remember when Kanye made soul beats like All Falls Down now look at how bad his beats are sampling church sermons the ever so famous demon voice he uses, if people have their eyes closed to this they will be the ones tricked and mind controlled its all subliminil but for most who dont believe it its because to them seeing is believing.

first off you big bang theory fucking dweebs need to get a life n realize that everything isn't as wonderful as you Wana believe. s.t.f.u. it us devil worship dip-shits. n there r not many books to read this is because it is kept a secret for a reason Illuminati is real. they want one religion and a new word order. the Celebes are puppets they have an altimatum do what is asked or else...its not about kanyes life or Chris brown's life that's just a distraction. s.m.h sad.....

Evil music. If you disagree you have fallen for at just as planed. Satan uses music as weapons to draw us away from our god Jehovah.

It's not devil worship it's anti religion read a fucking book, the enlightened ones use these meat puppets as their tools, religion is beyond false in to many ways and science is the only truth
Open your eyes and the light will let you see!
It is all there for the eye that can see but the blind ones will always suffer in secrecy....

Wow ignorance is bliss huh guys, "satans" army are you fucking kidding me?? The illuminati are not devil worshipers they take these talentless fucks and use them as tools spread their message, they are very real and do not proclaim they worship the devil, you morons did, they are people of science and truth but when people don't understand something it must be devil worship....

...Anyone who thinks this is some illuminati reference that has hidden meaning is an utter retard. Penn & Teller wouldn't waste their time with these stupid people and their insane devotion to rediculous conspiracy theories...
If there is hidden sublimation in the flashing and underlying meaning to such a basic song (with excellent music)...then Elvis didn't do drugs.
The nature of people is to push their crazy thoughts onto others...many do this for a personal agenda. Don't listen to them. They are idiots.

I'm sorry, it's not really that deeps is it?
Isn't it self explanatory?
Isn't it about a guy who has a wife and daughter, they live in the ghetto, he slaps his wife, goes to jail, gets out, comes home to find his wife has a new boyfriend, he teaches him/her a lesson (ghetto university) by bashing him, she gets a restraining order, he can't be with his wife or daughter, he doesn't want his daughter growing up without a dad in the ghetto's, he wants his family back, he has visitations with his daughter, he's broke, he's down and out, he wants to do a 'line' (drugs') ...
or something like that?
The lights are a few different things:
the lights on the cop cars, the lights of a big city and being light up as in 'exposed'. Is Rhiannon singing this bit as the wife who wants her husband exposed for doing wrong?
The guy it's about could be Chris Brown? another famous artist? or any guy who hits his wife?
MJ is mentioned maybe just because he must of meant a lot to the artist in one way or another. No matter whether you love or hate MJ it is indisputable he was one of the most influential artists ever.
That's my opinion anyway. Each to his/her won.

U dnt rlly need and interpretation, the music video tells it all, and the lyrics talk about a father who has lost custody of his daughter, and he has to bear with the fact that his daughter has departed from him, he talks about how he doesn't want his daughter in the "ghetto university", not to be a sterotype, but many kids in the ghetto don't have fathers, and therfore Kanye doesn't want her daughter to fall in the negative statstics.
By the way Kanye's parents had split when he was three and he and his mother moved to Chicago in the southside , which is infamously known for being in the "ghetto" ( for those of you who didn't know, Kanye was born in Atlanta, but he spent most his life in Chicago or Chi-town)
I'm only 14, but I hope u take my interpretation into consideration, I mean seriosly,You let all these coments about "illumanti" be submitted? Come on now

"TRIED TO TELL YOU BUT ALL I CAN SAY..."?!?!
the whole songs a metaphor for something bigger, more sinister, despite the Subliminal flashing messages, he's trying to Send a message, but he cant say too much.

Don't they say "until it's vegas everywhere". Isn't vegas sin city. And arent the illuminati about corruption?

("most") of you guys are wrong this is a song about fame fortune and w/e else goes along with being famous but if you listen and watch "carefully" satan is the one rapping in this song kanye quotes: "im headed home im almost there im on my way headed up the stairs to my suprise a ni**a replacin me" this means he was coming up in the inustry ignorant and once he got up them stair / is at the top of his game satan/illuminati brain washed him and they are now using him and many other artist as puppets to build satans so called army.
and clearly its working for him judgeing by all the comments and views on you tube
"most" of you are idiots cuz the devil is mocking u in your face but ppl are too ignorant to know tht hes mocking god through all these artist Lady Gagas music vid alejandro is proof satan has taken charge in the music industry also if u notice hype at the end quoting over and over im gettin mine u should go n get ur own meaning satans gathering his souls n god needs to get his own (also notice he pointing at the light which reps god)and did any of you guys maybe wonder why near the end all these other artists names start popping up? its cuz theyre illuminati puppets too (the easiest way to interpret satanic songs is imagine the devil is singing to you not the puppets)

The "eye" nigga dead dude is wrong, he actually says "Our Nigga dead", true that the illuminati is the theme of the song, He might be telling us that the illuminati has a huge part in Michael Jackson's passing on "Something wrong....I hold my head, MJ gone...a nigga dead" the part about beating his girl is definitely a reference to Chris Brown and Rihanna, and probably that the fact that Chris might have rejected the illuminati or was not accepted into it and thus his career headed south after a conspiracy against him Rihanna as we all know is a protege of Jay-Z and is thus a member just look at her videos, the rest is about dealing with the fame and the struggles of leaving the illuminati, His album is basically an insight into the illuminati..."no one man should have all that power"..."everybody knows I'm a motherf**king monster" etc. Good luck leaving it Kanye, though he might not survive

He says "our nigga dead", not "eye" how is this any reference to the illuminati? its a damn song. a damn good one.
anonymous Jun 20th 2011, 18:09 report
He says "mj gone....eye nigga dead".....eye???? Obvious as fuck just listen closely to that part he says eye not "my"....for the all seeing eye of the illuminati

Yo I love Kanye, but the song is talkin about the Illuminati, You cant argue that.

If all of that is true, kanye west must be a living incarnation of the devil!!!! I mean, lights must mean a negative thing instead of the demons he dealt with (aka alcoholism and drug abuse) before he came into the light ("no more drugs for me, pussy and religion is all I need"). Right? Cause light is scary and dark isn't. Wait a minute...
