Domesticated paradise, palm trees and pools

from Frank Ocean – Sweet Life Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Frank is saying that this place is not in fact paradise because it’s domesticated- the use of domesticated adds to the theme of ignorance in this song, so on the surface while seeing all of the palm trees and pools in this neighborhood it may seem perfect, it lacks something deeper that one would find in paradise.
