You get nothing out of those lyrics right there? Talking about some big issues in today's society, Kanye is a firm believer that the government administered AIDS and has brought it up in a lot of songs. Then stating how incredibly hard it is to walk with Jesus at this point in his life with all the fame and money he has surrounding him. Then how his cousin started smoking because his aunt couldn't stop, so he picked it up and gets looked down on. Let's go back to the AIDS thing, take a look at Roses. The first verse...
I know it's past visiting hours
But can I please give her these flowers
The doctor dont wanna take procedures
He claim my heart can't take the anastesia
It'll send her body into a seizure
The little thing by the hospital bed, it'll stop beeping,
Hey chick, im at a lost for words
What do you say at this time?
Remember when I was nine?
Tell her everything gone be fine?
But i'd be lying, the family crying
They want her to live, and she trying
I'm argueing like what kind of doctor can we fly in
You know the best medicine go to people thats paid,
If Magic Johnson got a cure for A.I.D.S.
And all the broke muthafugers past away
You tellin me if my grandma was in the N.B.A.
Right now she'd be ok?
But since she was just a secretary
Working for the church
For thirty five years
Things sposed to stop right here
My grandfather tryin to pull it together, he's strong,
Thats where I get my confidence from
I asked the nurse "did you do the research?"
She ask me, "can you sign some t-shirts?"
Bitch is you smokin reefer?
You dont see that we hurt
Just listen to the first verse.
Ok first off, regarding the first song - You prove my point; it's just a bunch of open-ended crap with no rational flow or reason.
On to the second song. Ok so here's a guy, a rich guy, who's saying that only the rich can get a cure for AIDS. No wait, he's rich, so that can't be it. It's only NBA players that can get cures for AIDS? No no, what he's really saying is that it's just his grandma, and he's too cheap to be able to buy the cure, you know cause only rich people can get it, or NBA players, or famous people....err wait a second.
