But baby it's okay
I swear it's okay
This line does an excellent job of establishing the tone of the song. The speaker goes on to boast that he knows everything, and therefore is some omniscient being of likely higher intellect. This line is like a parent telling their child that their wrongdoings are fine because they lack wisdom, wisdom which the parent has. It’s necessary to also note how he says this line in the song the first time as opposed to the second time. He sounds very strong and sure of himself the first time, which confirms the tone and ethos he establishes.
