Kid Cudi - All Along

Hey
Ma, ma, ma moo.

Hey
Ma, ma, ma moo.

When the days change
So does my attitude
I'm messy at home
I eat a lotta junk food.

When the nights change
So do my nightmares too
I dream reality
Is my dream.

All along
All along.
I guess I'm meant to be alone

All along
All along
I guess I'm meant to be alone
Out there on my own.

When the weeks
Change.
The rumors change too, I'm addicted to highs
Would you like to know why?

When the months change
So do my love point of views
I don't want what I need
What I need hates me.
What I need hates me.

I know all along
All along.
I know I'm meant to be alone

It's crazy
But all along,
All along.
I knew I was meant to be alone
Out there on my own, yeah.

Suppose him out the lying order(?), fell to end
Who would be the villain?
All the strangers, voting for him.

Suppose him out the lying order(?), fell to smile
Who will be the villain?
All the strangers, voting for him.

All along
All along.
I guess I'm meant to be alone.

All along
All along.
I guess I'm meant to be alone
Out there on my own, yeah

The fifteenth track on "Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager" and the first song off the final act of the album, ‘Act 5: You Live, You Learn.’ Cudi realizes that he will forever be alone in some way and that he has to fight on his own the battles life throws at him. It’s a sad song, but it’s consoling at the same time. Actually, “All Along” was meant to be the last track on the album, but Cudi then recorded three more songs: “Don’t Play This Song”, “Ghost!”, and “Trapped In My Mind”. He felt like these songs made a better conclusion of the story and that “All Along” would have been “a very sad song to end an album”. "What has Emile said about the song?" "I was thinking about it today because today was this rainy fall day in New York where all the leaves were orange and it was rainy and cold. That’s kinda what “All Along” is. It’s a very personal record for Cudi obviously and something he was dealing with at the time, and he just expressed it on the record. I had the drums and the piano for the beat, and we were just in the studio and played that and he was just into it. He sat and sort of freestyled it. I remember he did it quick, and as soon as he got in the booth and did the first line I was just like, ‘Oh shit, that’s going to be the shit.’ It was classic Cudi delivery, the style on it was just classic, and I remember texting Pat because Pat wasn’t there, after one line. I was like, ‘Yo, we got a fucking banger right now.’ I don’t think Cudi likes to talk about that record that much because it’s a personal thing for him. It’s the real emotion that he had at the time and it’s just a really special record. Sonically it’s so good, Larry Gold did a fucking amazing job on the strings. I was talking to Larry when we were putting that one together, and wanted to capture some Beatles kind vibe on the strings, he just nailed that one."
