It’s almost like you’re in the clan!

But if the oxygen escapes it'll smother the flames Painting by Atmosphere

The same way flames die if they don’t get oxygen, the person’s regrets will “disappear” if he stops constantly thinking about them.

His thoughts (oxygen) are what’s keeping his regrets (flames) alive.

It might also suggest a suicidal theme:
Some people who live in pain choose to commit suicide to escape from their suffering.

[Bridge: The-Dream]
I live by you, desire
I stand by you, walk through the fire
Your love is my scripture
Let me into your encryption

[Kanye West]
Coke on her black skin
Make a stripe like a zebra, I call that jungle fever
You will not control the threesome
Just roll the weed up until I get me some
We formed a new religion
No sins as long as there’s permission
And deception is the only felony
So never fuck nobody without telling me
Sunglasses and Advil, last night was mad real
Sun coming up, 5 a.m., I wonder if they got cabs still?
Thinking 'bout the girl in all leopard
Who was rubbing the wood like Kiki Shepherd
Two tattoos one read "No Apologies"
The other said "Love is Cursed by Monogamy"
It’s something that the pastor don’t preach
It’s something that a teacher can’t teach
When we die the money we can’t keep
But we probably spend it all cause the pain ain’t cheap, preach

[Hook: Frank Ocean]
Human beings in a mob
What's a mob to a king? What's a king to a God?
What's a God to a non-believer who don't believe in anything?
Will he make it out alive? Alright, alright, no church in the wild

Look inside my parking garage and see a collage
Of every person I despise since the moment I turned five
Black Lip Bastard (Remix) by Ab-Soul (Ft. Black Hippy, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q) 5

A collage is thought to be a masterpiece made from things not used in that sense. So his full picture of his collage is a masterpiece or success and the haters seen in it were his and drive to create beauty, but several possible ways to see this:

  • His parking garage is full of nice cars that he got from being inspired to work his ass off by the people he hates who tried to shoot down his dreams.

  • His parking garage is full of the dead bodies of people he hates.

  • His parking garage is his subconscious mind and inside his mind is all his old memories of people he despised in his life since he was five years old.

Lead shower, Anna Pebble hour, bitch, stand the rain Black Lip Bastard (Remix) by Ab-Soul (Ft. Black Hippy, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q) 5

Lead is a composite of minerals, pebbles are also a composite of minerals. Here the “lead shower” means the barrage from his gun, but he’s also using its literal meaning to play off the pebble bit. Telling the person he’s cursing at to “stand the rain” is the polite way of asking them to stand in front of his gun.

Ann Peebles — not “Anna Pebble”, as Kendrick pronounces it here — had a hit in 1973 with the song “I Can’t Stand the Rain
