You see the daylight comes into the kingdom
But the kingdom's full of ignorant men

from Janelle Monae (Ft. Saul Williams) – Dance or Die Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The daylight is a reference to Cindi Mayweather, who, with her rebellion, is shining light on the corrupt government of Metropolis, exposing their tactics and motives. However, Monáe worries again that Metropolis' citizens will have been too brainwashed to understand the information that Cindi is exposing.
