Amidst a dream with no exit doors
Cudi compares his life to a dream, where there are no exits. Most dreams can be escaped by waking up — but when your dream is reality, it cannot be escaped except through death.
His music projects can be seen as looks in to his dream, as he states in the intro of his first album “You’re in my dream”…
The fact that Cudi says this line a bit regretfully, and he wants to find an exit door, insinuates that the dream is more of a nightmare. Most people would love to live the life he is living — the life of a successful rap artist, but there is certainly pain involved in it. The expression of this pain is what made his second album borderline depressing.
