frank ocean is more punk with these lyrics than most current “punk” bands that i have heard. this backhand comment about people putting boundaries and limits on young people.. too good. it is so eerie and powerful to have kids sing this section of the song, in my opinion.
"heard em say, you need to say…
(how high) tell me how high shall we jump.
(how far) really how far have we come?
i’ve been wondering, was we better off without it?
i’ve been wondering, were we better off before?”
