This weeks quotable comes from Kanye West, off of his new album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”, IN STORES NOW. Mr. West is having a great year. He is voted the top Artist of the Year by MTV. If you are a fan of West, you would know that he has the musical ability to make you feel what he feels when he makes music. Although the man is a regular sh*T talker, you gotta love him because he backs it up. On the track, “Lost in the World”, West gives the feeling of loneliness, pain, despair, then triumph. The opening sequence of perfect vocal imagery, switches from a sampled Bon Iver’s “Woods”, to a soulful ballad arranged by West. Here are the lyrics, please feel free to COMMENT!!!

[Justin Vernon – Bon Iver: Sample From “Woods”]
I’m up in the woods, I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still to slow down the time
I’m up in the woods, I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still to slow down the time
‘m up in the woods, I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still to slow down the time

[Chorus]
I’m lost in the World, I’m down on my mind
I’m new in the city, and I’m down for the night
down for the night
said she’s down for the night
(x2)

[Kanye West – Verse 1]
Your my Devil, Your my Angel
Your my Heaven, Your my Hell
Your my Now, Your my Forever
Your my Freedom, Your my Jail
Your my Lies, Your my Truth
Your my War, Your my Truce
Your my Questions, Your my Proof
Your my Stress and your my Masseuse
Mama-say mama-say ma-ma-coo-sah
Lost in this Plastic life,
Lets Break out of this fake ass Party
Turn this in to a Classic Night
If we die in each others arms we still get laid in our Afterlife
If we die in each others arms we still get laid

[Chorus]
I’m up in the woods, I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still to slow down the time
I’m lost in the World, I’m down on my mind
I’m new in the city, and I’m down for the night
down for the night
said she’s down for the night
