See there’s a star that's born in every bar at dawn
When he’s searching for his car with the car alarm

from Mr. J. Medeiros (Ft. A Mouse Named Wolf) – Stand Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Here I try to tie Norm the idea of “Cheers” with the neighborhood I described Hip Hop came from (the one with the car alarms)

So I am imagining Norm, coming out of “Cheers” to see his car stereo had been jacked.

I view this as an awakening, as if by the end of the song you should be awakened to it’s meaning.

Hip Hop is “street”…not commercial- this is it’s reality.

I use the “star” in dawn, to mean the sun- or the “light” to which illuminates the metaphors meaning.

Norm- is still short for normal (double entendre) which represents the “normal” average man.

Which is to who this song is written to.

Basically- maybe it takes your stereo to be stolen out of your BMW which once blasted Hip Hop, to understand your place in the Hip Hop world.

To sober you up.
