When it comes to Kanye West's music, I never quite know what to expect. From his rants on Twitter, to fashion lines being shown in Madison Square Garden, and every track that's dropped in between, you don't need to be consistently streaming his music to hear the rapper's voice. Ye dropped on Friday, June 1, after a secret listening party which took place in Wyoming the night before. It features seven new songs that cover all sorts of topics. But, these Kanye "Ghost Town" lyrics for captions truly show that this track off the LP, in particular, is an experience — and fans everywhere were seriously hyped about it.
I've found that the key to listening to and appreciating rap music is to try and decode the lyrics. Every line has a message and a meaning, and until you discover it, you're missing out on entire layers of the song. Sure, not every single jam comes with emotions and deep perspectives worth exploring. Kanye West doesn't disappoint on this album, though (leaving tracks like "Violent Crimes" on the table, which could quite possibly be Kanye talking about his daughters Chicago and North West, amongst some other things).
According to The Fader, "Ghost Town" features John Legend, Kid Cudi, and 070 Shake. The lyrics can be interpreted as rather intense at times, but those words are paired with a sweet and soulful melody, though (bringing life to a song that confronts that feeling of numbness, and offering a lot of hope).
You may not think of using lyrics from "Ghost Town" for an Instagram caption, but before you sign off and start looking to other tried and true lyrics instead, find a few words that totally match your mood. If you're 20-something, you've likely had a moment where you were "caught between space and time." You and your bestie may even be talking at the party like you "drank all the wine." Believe it or not, the social media opportunities in this song are endless, so check out some of these lyrics for your next Insta caption.
