Kid Cudi – Soundtrack Of My Life lyrics

[Verse 1]
I got 99 problems and they all bitches
Wish I was Jigga Man, carefree livin'
But I'm not Shawn or Martin Louis
I'm that Cleveland nigga rolling with them Brooklyn boys
You know how it be when you start living large
I control my own life, Charles was never in charge
No sitcom could teach Scott about the dram
Or even explain the troubles that haunted my mom
On Christmas time, my mom Christmas grind
Got me most of what I wanted, how'd you do it mom, huh?
She copped the toys I would play with in my room by myself
"Why he by himself?"
He got two older brothers, one hood, one good
An independent older sister kept me fly when she could
But they all didn't see, the little bit of sadness in me, Scotty

[Hook]
I've got some issues that nobody can see
And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
I bring them to the light for you
It's only right
This is the soundtrack to my life,
The soundtrack to my life

[Verse 2]
I'm super paranoid, like a 6th sense
Since my father died, I ain't been right since
And I tried to piece the puzzle of the universe
Split an eighth of shrooms just so I could see the universe
I tried to think about myself as a sacrifice
Just to show the kids they ain't the only ones who up at night
The moon will illuminate my room and soon I'm consumed by my doom
Once upon a time nobody gave a fuck
It's all said and done and my cock's been sucked
So now I'm in the cut, alcohol in the wound
My heart's an open sore that I hope heals soon
I live in a cocoon opposite of Cancun
Where it is never sunny, the dark side of the moon
So it's more than right, I try to she'd some light on a man
Not many people of this planet understand... fame

[Hook]
I've got some issues that nobody can see
And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
I bring them to the light for you
It's only right
This is the soundtrack to my life,
The soundtrack to my life

[Verse 3]
I was close to go and trying some coke
And a happy ending would be slitting my throat
Ignorance to cope man, ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is love, and I need that shit
If I never did shows, then I'd probably be a myth
If I cared about the blogs, then I'd probably be a jackass
Don't give a shit what people talkin' bout fam
Haters shake my hand but I keep the sanitizer on deck
Hope I really get to see 30
Wanna settle down, stop being so flirty
Most of the clean faces be the most dirty
I just need a thoroughbred, cook when I'm hungry
Ass all chunky, brain is insanity
Only things that calm me down, pussy and some Cali trees
And I get both, never truly satisfied
I am happy, that's just the saddest lie

[Hook]
I've got some issues that nobody can see
And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
I bring them to the light for you
It's only right
This is the soundtrack to my life,
The soundtrack to my life

    If you can relate to everything in this song, only then, is when you can understand this song, from the drugs, true love and betrayal, death, hes not self loathing, and hes letting everyone in on how he feels, he a "sacrifice" he bringin his life into thr light so the people who can relate to this song, know there not alone, " not many people on this planit understand" they can't help it, you don't want to.

    He's obviously got issues that no one can see. The song almost explains itself. He talks a lot of his family in this song. He wants them to be there for him, but he won't say it straight. He's glad his mom has given him what she has. His dad's death screwed everything up for him, and he's going crazy because of it. He's doing drugs in hopes that maybe some of his problems will go away, but it all catches it up to him at night. He knows there aren't too many people who would get him, who feel the way he feels. He thinks killing himself is the easy way out. And he thinks that if he weren't famous, he'd be a nobody and that if he cared about what people said about him, he'd be a horrible person about it. He wants to grow out of it, settle down and get married. But he knows the prettiest girls are usually the rudest. He's saying the only things that calm him are sleeping around and california, but he's never completely fulfilled.

    A touching story of a kid not understood with problems that he is forced to face but doesn't expect people to feel greif for him because he is strong enough to face them on his own with passion and later turned them into his career so that he would be able to tell people his story so that maybe it could help just one person make it through the struggle they are faceing.

    I beleieve the meaning is that everyone faces issue no matter where and what you come from. In the begining of the song he expalins the struggles of his family. Talks about his mom how she'd manage to give with when they were struggling. Losing his father at a young age and going through the pain. Now hes a success but still strugles with what comes with it. He wants to settle down but can't due to the fame. He basically says he has so much now but don't be fooled with all that $$$ still not making him happy. And cudi rules.
