Crack Rock
Frank Ocean Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You don't know how little you matter
Until you're all alone
In the middle of Arkansas
With a little rock left in that glass dick
Used to date a blonde
You used to hit it raw
'Cause she was, and you are madly involved, madly involved

Hittin' stones in glass homes
You're smokin' stones in abandoned homes
You hit them stones and broke your home
Crack rock, crack rock
Crack rock, crack rock
Hittin' stones in glass homes
You're smokin' stones in abandoned homes
You're hittin' stones and broke your home
Ooh-ah, ooh-ooh
Crack rock, crack rock
Crack rock, crack rock

You're shuckin' and jivin', stealin' and robbin'
To get the fixin' that you're itchin' for
Your family stopped inviting you to things
Won't let you hold their infant
You used to get a little cut-up from time to time
But the freaks ain't tryin' to sleep with cracky

(Hittin' stones)
Hittin' stones in glass homes
You're smokin' stones in abandoned homes
You hit them stones and you broke your home
Crack rock
Crack rock, crack rock

Crooked cop, dead cop
How much dope can you push to me?
Crooked cop, dead cop
No good for community
Fuckin' pig get shot
Three-hundred men will search for me
My brother get popped
And don't no one hear the sound
Don't no one hear the rounds, ooh, sound
Don't no one hear the shells, ooh, shells
Don't no one hear a sound
Don't no one disturb the peace for riot
Don't no one disrupt nirvana
Don't no one wanna blow the high

Crack rock, ooh
Crack rock, ooh
Crack rock
How you feeling, girl? Ooh
How's the gutter doin'?
Crack rock

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the song 'Crack Rock' by Frank Ocean, discusses the harsh realities of drug addiction and its effects on personal relationships. The first stanza speaks about the loneliness and hopelessness that comes with drug addiction. The singer of the song has hit rock bottom and is in a small, forgotten town in Arkansas, smoking crack out of a glass pipe. He reminisces about his past relationship with a blonde girl that he used to date and how their relationship was built on drug addiction. The second stanza delves deeper into the destructive nature of drug addiction, discussing how the singer has turned to theft and robbery to fund their addiction. His family has cut ties with him, and he is ostracized from any family functions or gatherings.


The chorus of the song repeats the phrase "Hittin' stones in glass homes, you're smoking stones in abandoned homes." While the phrase can be interpreted in different ways, it seems to be a metaphor for the singer's current situation. He is living in abandoned homes, smoking crack out of a glass pipe, which is causing him to hit metaphorical "stones" that are breaking his life apart. The song also discusses police corruption and brutality, as the lyrics "crooked cop, dead cop, how much dope can you push to me?" allude to police officers who take bribes to look the other way and allow drug trafficking to continue.


Overall, 'Crack Rock' is a poignant and emotional song that delves into the dark realities of drug addiction and how it affects people's lives.
