There are a few allusions to Sonic the Hedgehog here, and a reference to Charles Hamilton, a rapper. Charles Hamilton was signed to Interscope records but was dropped before the debut of his first album. Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles are all characters from the Sonic games, and DDot uses their names to basically say that when he beats Gambino up, Gambino will cower.

A cynic, by definition, is: “a person who believes that people are motivated purely by self-interest rather than acting for honorable or unselfish reasons”. He wants to whisk her away from these people.

He’ll keep her warm, much like a winter coat.

He’ll lift her up to make her taller, because her heredity has made her short. If she’s taller, she won’t have to stretch to look into his eyes.

He and his girl are going through a breakup and, as she’s upset, her tears have caused her makeup to smear.

He’s not paying attention to the girl as she’s talking, however. His mind is wandering as he looks at the road, and wonders what is trapped underneath the surface. That shows that during such an intense and quite serious moment, when you’d imagine he should be attentive and trying to reconcile, he’s actually completely aloof to the situation.

The passage (and the way in which he sings) indicates his inner sense of calm, which isn’t to necessarily say he’s okay with the breakup, but he’s either come to terms with it or is currently too depressed to even register it.

The “last demands” may be the final words you yell, talk or debate with each other as your relationship comes to an end which could include all manner of requests, but whatever they are he isn’t in the mind-state to listen.

This is awesome, to add on I think he is referring to stages two through four of the Kubler-Ross Model of Grief (not of course his full intention).
Step 2) “Anger” causing the smeared black ink… sweaty palms.
Step 3) “Bargaining” referring to the last demands
Step 4) “Depression” staring at the asphalt, a common expression of depressed people.

Life and their relationship isn’t really colorless: he’s saying their relationship is actually full of positive things if she’d look close enough.

this is also a reference to science and light, when we see a color it is simply light reflection that color off an object while all other colors are absorbed by that object, so when we see a color all others are present, so when we see none all are present

“Plots” in the second verse shouldn’t be plural
