My flesh went through the peoples in this peephole
And said the keyhole and kept the door locked

from James Blake (Ft. Chance The Rapper) – Life Round Here (Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius


He took a look around at the people around him “through a peephole”…meaning he kept to himself as he surveyed the landscape, but didn’t like what he saw and stayed inside…He’s reflective…pensive..cynical and not necessarily pleased with the human condition he’s witnessing.
