You cannot survive

from Kanye West (Ft. Frank Ocean) – New Slaves Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Sorry Frank, we tried looking for Faith in this Crowd…

..but unfortunately found some R&B singer sitting on your standing ovation.

Frank Ocean deals with faith issues in several of his songs. For instance, flash back the chorus that Frank sang in Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “No Church In The Wild:”

Human beings in a mob
What’s a mob to a king? What’s a king to a God?
What’s a God to a non-believer who don’t believe in anything?
Will he make it out alive? Alright, alright, no church in the wild

In his song “We All Try”, from his album nostalgia, Ultra, he talks about loss of faith in a supreme being and the necessity to live for something that you strongly believe in.
