[Kid Cudi]
I got 99 problems and they all snitches,
Wish I was Jigga man,
Care free livin,
But I'm not shawn,
Or Martin Louis,
I'm that Cleveland n-gga,
Rollin with them Brooklyn boy,
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 crying
Got me most of what I wanted how'd you do it mom?
Huh, she got me toys I would play with in my room by myself
Why he by himself?
He got 2 older brothers 1 hood 1 good
An independent older sister kept me fine when she could
But they all didn't see
The little bit of sadness in me
Scotty

[Chorus]
I've got some issues that nobody can see
And all of these emotions are pouring outta 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 ohhhh

[Verse 2]
I'm super paranoid like a sixth 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 can see the universe,
I try 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 really cared,
My hearts 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 the man,
Not many people of this planet understand.

[Chorus]
I've got some issues that nobody can see
And all of these emotions are pouring outta 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 ohhhh

    Obviously, this song has to do with what all his life is about. Every word in this song sums up his new ride from normal life to fame, while maintaining who he is. Cudi is god :)

    Is Kid Cudi a new artist?
    I actually seen him nominated in VMA Awards for new artists with Lady Gaga on the list.

    Hope his career will succeed as kanye west does.

    I think that this song is about the fact that music is always there for you when people can't always be, he is telling us how he felt/feels through his music
