The 10 Best Lyrics From Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange"

8.“You’re good at being bad, you’re bad at being good/For Heaven’s sakes go to Hell knock knock knock knock on wood” - Andre 3000

Song: "Pink Matter"

Fresh off the stunning 12-minute Gorillaz collaboration “Do Ya Thing,” Andre adds a soulful flair to one of Ocean's strongest tracks. Dual contradictions—bad is good/good is bad—are typical of Andre's style, looping off of the main narrative and creating extended free verses.

Here, he realizes that his girl is dangerous, but he is addicted, finally hoping that she would just go away. Ever superstitious, Stacks knocks on wood, avoiding the jinx where fate would put her in heaven and Andre deep in the pits. Just to prove his skill at witty asides, Stacks makes an “Ocean” pun just a line later.
