My plan is to figure out the world and escape all my demons
Lamar seeks to escape his demons, his methods contrast however as he both reads the Bible and smokes kush.
The pairing of smoking weed and reading the Bible suggest several things: the reality of a world that’s neither black or white, the non-exclusivity of the two acts (sin and salvation), and the sincerity of his genuineness (he’s open with his faults). It can also be a metaphor for where he is in his life, standing in a place between sin and salvation (man cannot serve two masters). .
