Cause right now thou hast forsaken us

from Kanye West – Stronger Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Quoting Jesus, right before he died: My God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Matthew 27:46)

Like the Italian writer Boccaccio in The Decameron, Kanye is painting a picture of wild, sinful partying in a world where — as Nietzsche would say — God is Dead.
