Alright run it
I never gave a fuck
I never a fuck about what niggas thought about me
I mean I did but like fuck it you know what I'm sayin
You gon' love me man
You gon' love me man

V1
They can't comprehend
Or even come close to understanding him
I guess if I was borin they would love me more
Guess if I was simple in the mind
Everything would be fine
Maybe if I was jerk to girls
Instead of being nice and speakin kind words
Then maybe it would be ok to say then
I wasn't a good guy to begin with

HOOK
But my mind is all crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy...
They got me thinkin I aint human,
Like I came in from above, above, above, above...
Feelin like a airplane in the sky
But then they say I'm crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy...
They got me thinkin I aint human,
Like I came in from above, above, above, above...
Feelin like a bird sittin high high

CHORUS
I be that man on the moon
I'm that man on the moon
And imma do what I do so
Do you hey hey
I be posted with my blunt and a brew my dude
I'm that man on the moon
I'm up up on the moon

V2
Close my eyes, hide in the dark
It's a curtain call, come on come all
All I do is try to make it simple
The ones that make it complicated
Never get congratulated
I'm somethin different in all aspects
Don't want a woman just to love her assets
I Still wife her up even with her flat chest
The type to get hurt
But that's the past tense

HOOK
My mind is all hazy, hazy, hazy, hazy...
I be thinkin that I'm wrong,
Cuz they used to call me lame, lame, lame...
My swag was a little different
But then my mind is hazy, hazy, hazy, hazy...
I be thinkin that I'm wrong.
But they the ones who lame, lame, lame, lame...
I got the last laugh nigga

CHORUS
I be that man on the moon
I'm that man on the moon
And imma do what I do so
Do you hey hey
I be posted with my blunt and a brew my dude
I'm that man on the moon
I'm up up on the moon

    this song is for the ones who have to live in their heads because they know their thoughts are nowhere near any kind of a good cobversatiinal topic for the people you see on a day to day basis. i can comprehebd to that because i always have to keep it simple too, laugh about jokes which i think are stupid and where i can smell the punchline frim a mile away, listen to problems where people are often acting plain stupid and ignore their own logic. its hard when you think in unconventional ways and you only earn confusion and ignorance because your persona cant be easily categorized.

    Its about being different not being simple and following the ways of society. No longer being simple in the mind and being an outcast who lives life his own way.

    It talks about our modern society today, and how people always say things about others, and kid cudi says that you dont need to give a damn, and in his case he doesnt, he doesnt mind being a someone "diferent" which is good, he thinks the way he wants wihtout caring what others say

    A person who knows he's different . And accepts it . Someone who has been through a lot and doesnt let it make him bitter . But makes him smarter , like the past should . He's the man on the moon , watching every other person try to become a star.

    Cudi is saying he actually cares about people, and that his thoughts are above mainstream thinking, and that he is not a conformist, which is why people don't understand him. Similar to eminem... And that maybe if he dumbed himself down to a mainstream thought process that he would be more loved and more understood by the general public.
