Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh...

[Kid Cudi:]
Day and night (what, what)
I toss and turn, I keep stressing my mind, mind (what, what)
I look for peace but see I don't attain (what, what)
What I need for keeps this silly game we play, play
Now look at this (what, what)
Madness to magnet keeps attracting me, me (what, what)
I try to run but see I'm not that fast (what, what)
I think I'm first but surely finish last, last

[Chorus:]
Cuz day and night
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night
He's all alone through the day and night
The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)
Day and night
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night
He's all alone, some things will never change (never change)
The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)

[Kid Cudi:]
Hold the phone (what, what)
The lonely stoner, mr. solo doe low (what, what)
He's on the move can't seem to shake the shade (what, what)
Within his dreams he see's the life he made, made
The pain is deep (what, what)
A silent sleeper you won't hear a peep, peep (what, what)
The girl he wants don't seem to want him to (what, what)
It seems the feelings that she had are through, through

[Chorus:]
Cuz day and night
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night
He's all alone through the day and night
The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)
Day and night
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night
He's all alone, some things will never change (yeah) (never change)
The lonely loner seems to free his(yeah) mind at night (at, at, at night)

[Kid Cudi:]
Slow mo, (what, what)
When the temple slows up and creates that new, new (what, what)
He seems alive though he is feeling blue (what, what)
The sun is shining man he's super cool, cool
The lonely nights (what, what)
They fade away he slips into his white nikes (what, what)
He smokes a clip and then he's on the way (what, what)
To free his mind in search of,
To free his mind in search of,
To free his mind in search of,

[Chorus:]
Cuz day and night
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night
He's all alone through the day and night
The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)
Day and night
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night
He's all alone, some things will never change (never change)
The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)

At, at, at night

    I like this song too. It is one of those songs that just sticks in your head after you hear it.

    I think, at least in the first part of the song, it is about someone that wants to get out of and stay out of the sort of life that he is in, but it keeps pulling him back in. It sort of follows him, and is difficult to change. When he thinks he is ahead, he really isn't. It is a never ending cycle. It can also be interpreted from the line:

    "He's on the move can't seem to shake the shade"

    Also, in the lines:

    To free his mind in search of,
    To free his mind in search of,
    To free his mind in search of,

    He's looking for something but doesn't know what it is. Maybe he can't, or doesn't know how, to get out of the way he is and the situation/lifestyle that he is in.

    I friggin love this song! This song is amazing. Kid Cudi brought a whole new beat and song type and I think it’s awesome! The song is definitely a attention getter and I love it. Had this on my iPod as soon as I heard it.

    This song is talking about these young men out here, who are lost and this song paints a clear picture of what that life is like, ...how many young men do you know that dont have a job, feel like they cant get a job, dont have a car, dont have a home of there own, they burned all there bridges whith there family, live off of, or with diffrent women, but they do have nice clothes and shoes, and weed to smoke...up all knight sleep all day...some women see the possibility of a good man but look passed them...they see that he dont believe
