He'll give us what we need
It may not be what we want

from Kanye West – On Sight Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

…He’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now… Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight."

Kanye makes music that the public need, not what they desire, so at first we may say it is bad, different and unlistenable but we come back to it because it’s the music that we need to listen to.

The song that’s sampled: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsnJdmSHO_g ; A choral sample, in reverence to God/Jesus — here, it’s all YEEZUS, baby.
