Let's just have a discussion on these 3 songs. Some questions I want to pose:

1. Are there any parallels that exist with the 3?

2. Does the term "light" take on a different meaning with each song?

3. What is the symbolism of "lights"?

Great thread.

Well, I am pressed for time, and maybe I am wrong, especially on AOTL cause I haven't heard it enough but...

Flashing Lights = paparazzi, negative, media twisting, etc.
Street Lights = Due to heartbreak and the flashing lights, Ye's journey to find himself
All of the Lights = A celebration of Ye simply...not really giving a shit because he knows he is a spectacle for the ages?


EDIT: All three songs are great, haven't let AOTL sink in yet, but Flashing Lights and Street Lights are top quality Ye.

Have you ever noticed in a car that streetlights actually do pass my super quick, just like moments? Esp on the highway where there are tons of them, and they keep coming up to you and just as you see them, they're gone, just like moments. That's street lights to me. Flashing lights is all the cameras and paparazzi, I think, and idk bout AOTL yet

I agree on the first 2 but not sure about All of the Lights mainly because we havent heard the full thing and he mentions a daughter and all of that other stuff.I think so far (from what we've heard) it's talking about him not wanting to see the people he loves the most(daughter) have to go through what he's gone through or be pressured by the life that comes with Hollywood or growing up in the Ghetto.

I can't really decide because we haven't heard the final version for All Of The Lights. But as of now Flashing Lights.

in all of the lights is kanye saying that he beat some girl cuz he says " i had to take her to that ghetto university" then he says "cop lights..." so it's almost like he's saying he had to go ghetto on some girl and then got arrested and restraining orders and stuff
