“it is not the job of artists to give the audience what the audience want. if the audience knew what they needed then they wouldn’t be the audience. they would be the artists. it is the job of artists to give the audience what they need.” awe hell i’ve been there and back twice / third time is a charm if you pack light / it’s like a turn lane in a fast life / or feelin ‘round in pitch black night for a flash light / huh shit i ain’t really know the difference / even try and toe the line but i know i’m trippin / we’re all dying by design that ain’t no existence / how i’m finna go and see the world when i know it’s ending / who i’m kidding nothing ever ends / you just live with the pain or transform it into something different / some are gifted hella photogenic / they be posing for the photos only hella cold shoulders in it / took the stairwell to heaven rollin boulders in it / on a solo mission going toe to toe to win it / i don’t see no incentive to be codependent / i’m on ghost you don’t see me bending corners in it / no shittin colorado clone scented / got the legal homegrown zone for the dome split / sittin home alone like a Culkin in a zone / killin any villain tryna steal the feelin i’m my own critic / buncha sneak disses backbone missin / paint a picture buncha homies back home missin / if i’m witcha then i’m witcha i’m just zoned different / fuck around and drop a song prolly gone crickets no shit no problem no fix gon’ solve em all sauce get lost some awe shit this awesome no shit no problem no fix gone solve em awe shit this awesome no shit this awesome yea finally coming down coming off one / last run lit the fuck up like the fall sun / money tree season hanging where the leaves fall from / rake it in a pile bag it up for the fall fund / yea we can work together since we all one / we can build a bridge walk across one / real ride or die hard to come across one / so either burn that bridge or jump off one / never seen a vulture do a swan dive / never seen a pig fly ‘till i looked in god’s eye / all sauce in the za za / odds high it’s been a long strange trip a bizarre ride / it’s why i keep a rental pad on the pharcyde far side / widemouth jar full of gas by the bonfire / stare straight into the flames ‘till the song stop / shit i don’t play no blues in a pawn shop no shit no problem no fix gon solve em all sauce get lost some awe shit this awesome no shit no problem no fix gone solve em awe shit this awesome no shit “outside intelligent forces with supernatural power are occasionally able to play an artist much like we would play a musical instrument”

Tryna escape Cuz reality’ll make you put a 9 to ya face Thinking trying to relate’ll put the time in its place Keep the climb but the only thing you finding is space When they fry you up at least they gone admire the taste

inkline aye aye aye underpaid (yea) underachieved under a ton a debris under grief under the street know the gutter is deep come for the beef i’m feeling famished i need something to eat but i just leave with blood on my teeth and nothing but a receipt come with the heat from underneath like someone summoned a beast (arrgh) or like a ‘98 juvi record 400 degrees illest son of gun under the sun oh what a relief puffing a leaf you stuck in a seat with this shit stuck on repeat under his eye (under his eye) under a spell tunnel under the jail under the ground stuck in the storm uhh running from hail cold stuck in the snow ducking the L’s ducking the blows underhanded compliments just undermine the gold yea unimpressed (never) under distress so Sunday i rest under duress (yea) underdog stay puffin the chest never the less never underestimate a flex might channel Mia X send a hex via text wut hook shame shame on the all seeing eye blinders on all lost in the sky (shame shame shame) nine rings hella chains on fire seven sacred laws by which i abide (same same same) shame shame on the all seeing eye shame shame on the all seeing eye (shame shame shame) say the name or get tossed in the fire lizard king with a jar full of flies (same same same) phrasure (micro) I got this burden weighing heavy on my chest I’m perplexed Moving from under it has left me out of breath I’m a mess Trying my best to finesse myself and get my head in the right space Closing my eyes while I beg for help, feeling like hell cause I might break Under the weather yet comfortably numb Coming from someone who wants to be better I’m so disheveled Think I might’ve felt like this forever I got plenty problems piling up underneath the surface But is it worth it to disturb the peace of others for my purpose? Yo... I feel exposed Everyone tells me they don’t wanna know I’m tryna grow I was on a roll Now the reality’s killin me slow Six feet below My body cold Losing my feeling from head to my toes Say bye to my soul It might’ve been close But if it’s my time to go Then it’s my time to go AHH! Startle awake under the covers, sweating through the sheets Heart racing, arms shaking, like anxiety’s new to me I’m searching for an antidote in anecdotes And man I hope I find what I need That’ll help the man to cope hook shame shame on the all seeing eye blinders on all lost in the sky (shame shame shame) nine rings hella chains on fire seven sacred laws by which i abide (same same same) shame shame on the all seeing eye shame shame on the all seeing eye (shame shame shame) say the name or get tossed in the fire lizard king with a jar full of flies (same same same) nick dire Krampus built his name on the backs of the brash A vast world to survey from a cavern of glass Maxing in the shade he put his vassals in masks Fashionable chains, kept the captives entranced He attracted you to shame, With unnatural acts And made worshipping Satan really matter of fact In fact youre all the same yeah, actual trash Cattle pulling slaves into battle for scraps And standing above your grave is where the bad will relax While you're grabbing to get away from the gravel and grass Cast a bit of shade Yeah the Blackest of black When master’s in the maze It's best to act like a rat But damn I'm not afraid to Put the bastard on blast And Crack into the cave of the dragon we hatched battering rams. Blast him on the trampleds behalf Have to find a way to make that castle collapse hook shame shame on the all seeing eye blinders on all lost in the sky (shame shame shame) nine rings hella chains on fire seven sacred laws by which i abide (same same same) shame shame on the all seeing eye shame shame on the all seeing eye (shame shame shame) say the name or get tossed in the fire lizard king with a jar full of flies (same same same) the phasing octopus Its time for the panopticon It's time for the panopticon It's time for the panopticon It's time for the panopticon They ain't really watching u like that U wouldn't fight back anyway Fact U too small Fry The Eldritch horror is back Phase Conspiracy theorist would say they're keeping me locked away From u The one being surveyed Through false eyes That madness gave Paralyzed under the pressure of fear huh the impression that it factors The way it be making u live huh? Being taken down with grapples Scaffolding covering up ur beautiful store front All u choose to do is talk about it but aint no Jamie to pull it up It's a shame the way we stuck Under the thumbs of these cold fucks If ur imagination wasn't underdeveloped Ducking from us would be such a must Ain't no rush But U might wanna do sumn I'm just here to tell ya It's a goddamn… shame shame shame shame shame shame emahs emahs emahs shame shame shame emahs emahs emahs emahs emahs emahs “ok and we’re not only talking about that, we’re talking about a song that wasn’t engineered to be heard backwards but came right from the spirit world automatically. ok, and then we’re talking about if you wanted to make lyrics backwards on a song, you’re gonna mess up that song forward pretty bad right?”
