lyrics

“i’ve reverse-thread the machine and i’ma play that exact piece of tape backwards now. ok just uh..

ok to prove you have not doctored it -

i have not doctored it in any way. alright let’s go ahead and start..

he will give you six six six?

yea…”

mane rok
Over it all
Been that dope under their nose/
Beneath surface lurkers avoiding the circus undertow/
Whaddyaknow
Different day still over these heads/
Playing the over under no wonder your holding your breath/
Well the wait is over time to cop me a fat sack/
No more economically depressed underfunded NASDAQ/
Under that pressure - that’s where fools die, man/
Over worked, under valued - stop me when I’m lying/
Over a barrel - strapped with this stress/ under the gun wondering what’s happening next/
It’s cumbersome under their thumb below cold rubber soles/
Lo and behold those in control Won’t tackle this mess/
Under the overlords watchful eye
We overly think and philosophize/
Justify our pain under their reign - leaving us lost in lies/
Often times we weather these storms locked under their spell/
Over concerned with life above the clouds like what in the hell?!

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)

joshua
Voice voiceless/ duo brothers like we the four horsemen/ i was arn/ spine buster I mean no harm we/ cash money was the navy even the army/ shit crazy my lazy raps is way beyond me/ the pandemic taught me one day you can just be unseen/ who are you outside your social circles do you live with purpose/ who are you outside your ig handle can you live with person/  I been under/ deep in slumber shit cause I been hurting/ I just wonder do I love her or she the only woman/ put up wit me/ cause truth hit me ween ain’t got shit in common/ heart on the sleeve of these undergarments /  I’m close to harming/ I’m underwhelmed/ undercared / hell I’m under performing/ Top off the morning/ arguments before clock get alarming/ ion understand attitudes before we even yawning/ it’s a lose lose situation she wake up screaming on me/ sometimes even in love you can be fucking lonely

hook
shame shame on the all seeing eye

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 hell
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
underdressed (yea)
underdog stay puffin the chest
never the less
never underestimate a flex
might channel me a ex
send a hex via text
wut

phrasure
Spit it cold
I can’t see the sun
I’m at six below
Whistle blows
I blow the haters kisses
Like it’s mistletoes
Come getcha folks
Dancing on their graves
Ain’t no pigeon toes
Here it goes
Picking out my clothes
While you pick your nose
I got this burden weighing heavy on my chest
But tryna get from under it has left me out of breath
Negative thoughts festering
I can tell that I’m pestering
Everyone that I know
They just tell me get some rest
Skeletons in my closets
Ghosts haunting my bedroom
Corpses under the floorboards
Know I’ll prolly be dead soon
I’ll tell a tale of hearts that sounds as sweet as poetry
And I’ll endure the shame long as I know someone will notice me
I must’ve been placed under a spell
I remember trying to better myself
I’m begging for help if you couldn’t tell
Drinking poison water from out of the well
I’m searching for the antidote in anecdotes
And man I hope I find what I need
That’ll help the man to cope


“when you are perfectly free to feel stuck or not stuck, then you are unstuck. because actually nothing can stick on the real mind and you will find this out if you watch the flow of your thoughts.”
