Four in the morning, and I'm zoning
The first line refers to Kanye’s rapping, the fury he finds within himself during a late night recording session. He’s in the zone, he’s possessed, he doesn’t feel tired at all. Or he could just be in a ‘high’ zone, contemplating the concepts covered in the song.
A possible nod to multimedia artist; Rives set on TEDtalks Four in the morning is the literal time of the night when bad things happen.
