Emptiness is loneliness
And loneliness is cleanliness
And cleanliness is godliness
And God is empty just like me
The original “Great Chain of Being” before Ye and Jay did it
The third line refers to the old proverb “cleanliness is next to godliness”
This hook in summation simply reinstates the theme of not being good enough. The guy can be God, but that still makes him empty.
