lyrics

To Friend Too Fortunate
featuring Thesis Sahib
(J. Ward SOCAN, J. McDonald SOCAN, J. McCreery SOCAN, J. Klopfenstein ASCAP)

Please now, be forewarned that the storm has a path and intention
Please will you be forward as a friend to receive this as heartfelt
Please now,

What's up with all the trouble your man starts?
Pull up to my bumper but my dance card's full
Pull it up from Hansard, my record is crystal clear
I'm dancing with the stars and I'll eventually disappear
Listen here - let's put a end to the confusion
I'm more myth than legend, like Christmas cheer or cold fusion
The old dude's in a mood junior, don't test me
you know who's in the who's who, but no Jesse?
Peep the effect of all this anger on my health, I picked the
wrong name. I should have stayed a danger to myself
Satan's in his Hell and everything in it's right place
Any way I point I put three fingers in my white face
and rightfully so, I fully know
I dodge a bullet, talk my bullshit while the rifle reloads
I'm saying Voltaire's prayer: let my rivals be slow
Like a three-toed sloth crawling down a gravelly road.
And I will happily go when I am sick of the scheming.
As a formality, though, I will be kicking and screaming
And I won't listen to reason, my position will be instantly freezing
And I don't even need consistency even! Nope!

Please, now
Time to hustle, use brains over muscle
I’m seeing more chips than Ruffles®

Using brains over muscle, blowing bubbles in my cane soda
Trouble is, I can't drain the swamp or it's game over
I got it under control so thanks Yoda, but
What's worse? The pain or The Hangover Two
Staying sober was never a challenge for me
My tape is high bias, so good luck getting a balanced story
My pals adore me when I'm giving them emotional support
But their patience for commotion is short! so I am
Closing the door, and god knows to keep my window shut
The time for testing me is over, put your pencils up!
I'd rather throw a tag on my toe than see your stencils up
Shout out to Mara Wilson though, you really blew my mentions up
There's no defending what I've done or what I'll do next
I knew Treach was talking to me so I keep it crewneck
No sweat, I got my blue check, I'm all set
To keep it true to being beautiful, inscrutable and useless

I used to have to pry boards off condemned buildings
to see characters painted by a enigmatic outlaw
twenty years later he's my best friend

Jesse D, I would join a cult for you
Grab ahold the tail of any Hale-Bopp unstoppable
Or fill a craft with helium and hope that it’s unpoppable
Loved Ones strung along the Clotheshorse, topical
Around here, I’m a bit of an individual
Living within a vigil for my visual sigil
Like the Bat-Signal, skybound and blasted out in clouds
Temporary, mysterious, and oh-so-proud
Comme ci comme ça, I’m saying SoSo loud
Shouts to Troy for putting down an L Dot town boy
Where every MChas to prove their stuff is not just stuffing
Cause you won’t get away with a fancy way of saying nothing
Word to my cousin, Buzzin’ Bee, for keeping me
In edible medicals let the words flow free
Unfortunately, we may see how they fuck it up
When it’s sold and distributed legally

Around here: Old south, OPS, HW
North End, Imaginary Friends
Around here: When the biggety-Backburner surround the mic
The illest style of speak will occur

Around Here
Rich Troy Jeff Jeff Sean Shaun
Kils Tim Timmy Jared Jake Hassan
Krysia Jason Dave Scott Cory Shane
