See things for what they are, not what they appear to be. In other words, focus on the root of the subject.
His brother haunts him, Lowkey tries is hardest to stay away but no matter how hard he tries… nothing works.
What i meant by my last comment was that he was referring to his last mixtape captioned “i Fight Evil” … nothing Illuminati related.
I just want to put this finding in there, when i was doodling the letters FNL2 on my notebooks in class with a sharpie, i flipped it over and the word evil was spelled [FNL2] the “FNL” spelled backwards in handwriting spells evil. And this is his second album. Just food for thought.

yeah he says loudly…
Nasty line!! He took “swan wing” and switched it to “wand swing” for the next line, serious lyrical skills!!
Also hinting at how it is said humans came to North America, and the whole of America for this matter. From the Bering Strait, People from Asia walked over to the Americas because it was still froze, only to melt and halt that passage forever.

“Power is a drug and they feed the addiction”, a reference to the war on drugs where the CIA has been caught smuggling in drugs, selling, and catching those who buy.
