lyrics

It's been awhile
Since I sat down and wrote to a beat
Nowadays I'm an out of place opium freak
I still bark at the moon and bite marketing dudes
You will not see my album in Target this June
I walked the line up until I lost my mind
Cuz I haven't got the time to really be an honest guy
... and that's a tricky methodology, you follow me?
I change names randomly to maintain sanity
The medium is music, the mind is the weapon
The beat is the pulse that's providing the message
I leave behind in every single mind that I mess with
A virus connected, like a sinus infection
... target practice, slapstick, Charlie Chaplin
full starving artist package, party crashing
Harvard frat kids like, "thanks for the drugs!"
Aim for the rug, and leave that shit stained for a month
The vodka tonic got me sweating a bit
Cuz you can never predict shit when Thirtyseven is ripped
Dangerous brain — no playing it safe
Containing my rage, or watching what I say when I'm blazed
Monkey religion is a substance addiction
I got twelve steps for recovering Christians
Listen: this is not a popularity contest
For bitter little rich kids and arrogant potheads

(So what's this?) A message to humans with guts
(And what's that?) To live crazy and do as you must
(And how come?) Cuz most monkeys are stupid as fuck
(And why's that?) Thanks to bad food, music and drugs

Composing with silence, provoking a riot
And showing open horizons to broken appliances
... not distracted with surface reactions
I learned how to practice a system to see
Listen and breathe to find the rhythm beneath
Whatever physical meat I've got to live in this week
... breath is a weapon, perfected my method
With sentences stretching in every direction
I'm armed to the teeth, spit sharpened and clean
My tools are invisible and hard to believe
But trust me, I function on nothing but weed, beats
Drums and machines with malfunctioning screens
It's '07 and the spark has died
So please, don't march in line with target signs
Times have changed, we gotta redesign the game
To find a way to survive until the final days

So what's this?
