lyrics

Type these, tuck in with a pisces,
I can line ‘em up, knock ‘em down with a light ‘fev
my feet planted under ground, get inside me,
take a look around, figure 8, figure sideways
five piece suit, limbs, head, skin-diving,
parts for the soup, get a soul, get us stymied
props to the set, set stones up precisely,
hasta luego, I see it’s good timing
Lox on a bagel, my paces are basically biding,
the time as the day goes, this case is deciding
to stop at enabled, my brain's just inside me
defined by the label, the sane they supply cheap
defy what they say is so, stable and lively
childhood patience, come gape at society
find something sacred and break it to buy me
invite in the neighbors, the data compiling

Show you / what I mean
tell you what I / want to be
half are falling / out the trees
sad that we are / hard to reach
after you come back for me
have to see what’s / happening
half are falling / out the trees
sad that we are / hard to reach


A sliver full of hope, maybe they will visit me
maybe I don't own anything and that's the misery
shame on me to vote, state of changing what you couldn't be,
trading in your soul for a pigeonhole of parodies,
chip in what you know, I've been chipping off the heresy,
maybe even not alone, I bury all epitomes,
scary when you’re home, watching shadows try to get to me
this area’s opponent picking battles, try to pick a seat
serenading slow, don’t waste your minutes on assistance
We barely living, in a check to check existence,
future's looking grim, but that's the past, already distant,
cherish every moment, this is every pot I’ve pissed in
coming at it slow, you holding back, I’m cherry picking
throwing out a bone for any act that gets ambition
teeth are apropos, this whole thing laughs at its attrition
they come in through the holes, putting caps in all my wishing


Show you / what I mean
tell you what I / want to be
half are falling / out the trees
sad that we are / hard to reach
after you come back for me
have to see what’s / happening
half are falling / out the trees
sad that we are / hard to reach

mend broken bones with poker picture faces
open knowns, yard full of hola pick your graces,
phoning home, still wonder why we fake it
why we taking oaths, instead of lining for the bases
why we breaking those, a promise made is one that’s sacred
why we waste the vote on those who want our change to make it
buy the minutes low, spend ‘em posing for a painting
find what you don’t know, this face an app of entertainment
unbelievable, the flow on tap, adapt to changing
easier to cope, I know that rap is what a game is
ceiling’s looking low, better raise the bar to blame it
beat ‘em at they own, know the syllables are banging
beacon for the boats, never boast of what I noticed hanging
scheme for the low, being present in the moment, naming
humble, wanna know, park on Humboldt for the patience
trouble in his soul, so he’s subtle with the maintenance
