Welcome to the euphoria of cocaine without Abel

from Tyler The Creator – Parade Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A play on and the biblical tale of “Cain and Abel.” Cain, the evil one, committed the first murder of his brother Abel. Tyler is taking cocaine*, which is said to cause a euphoric sensation. He’s being influenced by evil drugs without a positive influence to steer him away

*In reality, Tyler doesn’t use cocaine (he says)

Tyler is a huge Clipse fan, and this line is similar to a line in “Grindin':”

“From days I wasn’t able, there was always ‘caine”
