Lucozade (stylized as lUcOzAdE) is a song by Zayn Malik. It appears as the thirtheenth track on his debut solo studio album Mind of Mine.
"Lucozade" has Malik singing a set of "stream-of consciousness" verses, which include references to the Lucozade energy drink and appear to involve a "Rimbaudian state of poetic derangement" of the senses in order to "tap into" the subconscious.
"Lucozade" is a chorus-less song, lacking a hook, and has Malik singing a set of "stream-of consciousness" verses, in a manner similar to hip hop. Malik sings the verses continuously, almost without pause, like a train of thought, before ending abruptly. The song also utilises 1980s synth sounds.
Malik sang "Lucozade" in a freestyle manner and recorded the song in one take.
I'm sipping pink
We're blazing on that new found haze
I'm seeing in the blacks and grays
I'm hoping that the basket sways
Left to right, sit and talk shit all night
Does that make it right for smoke
Maybe, or am I just seeing shit?
Seeing the pain inside in this house of fear
You don't even wanna know about the things I hear
Quick fix, headlights shine bright, you're the fuckin' deer
I'm just wishing it's ambition that got you
You'll be fishing for far too long
You're the bad guy in this movie
And I ain't wrong, I don't breathe the pollution
And the only solution is making shit confusing
And it ain't about who's winning or losing
It's bout the path that you're choosing
Time heals pain and promotes self-soothing
When the scars are gone you can't see bruising
Wanted three things: watches, chains and gold rings
I'm getting caught up in the feelings that they bring
A lack of sanity, losing touch with reality
Smoking too much, it's starting to fog up my clarity
Traveling in the day but you're still looking far to me
Bulls eye you the dot to me
Emotions splattered, same pattern
Can't even begin to spot 'em
I'm sad about shit that never happened
No lies in my eyes, nothing but truth will leave my mouth
I'm tryna fucking scream but the words won't come out
I'm, tryna fuckin' scream but the words won't come out
She's older, I told her
We ain't meant to be
It takes two not three, but I'm here any way
I hope he's leaving soon
Sudden not to see the elephant in this room
Disguised as your perfume
But the smell of it consumes, it takes all my mind
You can search the world but you will never find
I see everything you've done to me
Be there, you run to me
I don't need to pace, I don't need the stamina
If this shit was it, girl, I probably woulda ran from ya
Outwit, cause you cunnin'
That outfit cause you stunnin'
Begging cause I'm losing mage
Got me feeling some type of way I can't explain
The fuck is going on?
I think I got it wrong
When I told you I was over you, or were you under me?
