[Aesop Rock]
January, I fell to the cobblestone
In April, I cut little paper flowers
In August, I drank cold tea all my lonesome
In October, I was introduced to scourers
I love New York Saturdays
But Mondays last longer
And since I plan to live a long life
Maybe I'll serve a thousand Mondays and swallow the burn
To merge the week for all its got
To get my shoddy rotten ribs stick, forgot my ribs
I got a lil' something called a spirit crisis on my skull
And it's nothing short of ferocious but I swallowed the dosage
I got a mantle, and the mantle is a candle
And my candle is a flame that burns to symbolize the day Gretel met Hansel
Then I settle in a stand still
I live forever reaching for the sun
Hoping some lucky day I'll clutch and get a hand full
Rope ladder, I'm a swinging anvil
And I wanna turn scullies and summings with pretty lullabye, bye
The way my gypsy dances makes a monster retreat to fetal
I never felt so damn young
But you don't look a day over zero
And you don't look a day in the times cuz it'll make you realize
The night is near so
Well then go, dream, I clean around the edges
I tidy up the tabletop, and lectured all the pledges
I never really knew the true definition of precious
Till my angel wit the beautiful red locks gave me the message
I'm a fully animated life tree
See the root of the mute button was dug up bug up on a song
Of I'm a fully animated life tree
With branches for the heavens to admire actually

Chorus [Woman speaking]
Fame, war, love, honor, crime, innocence, tragedy, sunshine
Cringe, death, passion, heroism, God, suffering, joy, fate
Destiny, treasure, stars, gall, hunger, murder, silence, mayhem
Health, pain, suspense, breath, sound, guilt, pride, time

[Aesop Rock]
We all know what a halo is
But we all don't know the horrors if your halo tips
I be the matador making your pretty little heels click
I be the Sword in the Stone of the contemporary eclipse
I'm incredibly exhausted
You can't imagine, got my warm spirit stuck in my teeth, I'm obsolete
Freedom freedom freedom fighter beginning
Better stay competitive, meter in such to bust, fuckin fantastic
Every little steps you take breaks the tangles
In the chest, developed in the abomidable trouble
Settle for a cruel second, loud for an hour
Screamin to the beats to leave until my whole weekend turns sour
I ain't been around the world but I been around the block
I ain't seen everything but I seen enough to talk
I ain't a prophet, I ain't the Second Coming of Christ
I'm just a mason with a will to build and a little advice
I wanna weave a web, I wanna set of knitting needles
Villain with a theme dream silent
Paddle in the hole divy to where the portraits astonish
You won't regret a single solitary step, I promise
Look, in a situation where a dragon guards the gate
I make a true spur of the moment grown decision
Which in turn allows me to be something normal
With the prefix of the abbot
I can kill every monster if I gotta, that's that
Rockin it, rockin it, clippership rockin it
Be the little guinea pig, dig?
I'm tryin to make an exit with no ripples in the water
No splash, let the poison slide down down the hatch
It's like that

Chorus 2x

    General CommentIn January, I fell to the cobblestone
    In April, I cut little paper flowers
    In August, I drank cold tea on my lonesome
    In October, I was introduced to "scour"
    I love New York Saturdays
    But Mondays last longer
    And since I plan to live a long life
    Maybe I'll surf a thousand Mondays and swallow the burn
    To ???? the week for all its got to get
    My shoddy rotten ribs stick, forgot my ribs
    I got a lil' something called a spirit crisis on my skull
    And it's nothing short of ferocious but I swallowed the dosage
    I got a mantle, on the mantle is a candle
    On the candle is a flame that burns to symbolize the day Gretel met Hansel
    Then I settle in a stand still
    I live forever reaching for the sun
    Hoping some lucky day I'll clutch and get a hand full
    Rope ladder, I'm a swinging anvil
    And I wanna turn skullies and tummies with pretty lullabye, bye
    The way my gypsy dances makes a monster retreat to fetal
    I never felt so damn young
    But you don't look a day over zero
    And you don't look a day in the times cuz it'll make you realize
    The night is near so,
    In a code: "dream",
    I clean around the edges
    I tidy up the tabletop, and lectured all the pledges
    I never really knew the true definition of precious
    Till my angel wit the beautiful red locks gave me the message
    I'm a fully animated life tree
    See the root of the mute button was dug up bug up on a song
    Of "I'm a fully animated life tree
    With branches for the heavens to admire naturally"

    General CommentWe all know what a halo is

    You can't imagine, got my warm spirit stuck in my teeth, I'm obsolete
    Freedom freedom freedom fighter beginning
    For the sake of better demeanor and such to bust (rap about), fuckin fantastic
    Every little step she take breaks the chambers in your chest,
    Enveloped in the abomidable trouble
    Subtle for a cruel second, lied for an hour
    Screamin 'til it peaks, and then my whole weekend turns sour
    I ain't been around the world but I been around the block
    I ain't seen everything but I seen enough to talk
    I ain't a prophet, I ain't the Second Coming of Christ
    I'm just a mason with a will to build and a little advice
    I wanna weave a web, I bought a set of knitting needles
    Fiddlin' with a theme/dream, silent
    Pat on the hole in bottom divy to where the portraits astonish
    ["A hidden place with wonderful things inside" is my closest interpretation]
    You won't regret a single solitary step, I promise
    Look, in a situation where a dragon guards the gate
    I make a true spur of the moment grown decision
    Which, in turn, allows me to be something normal
    With the prefix of the "ab-"
    And I can kill every monster if I gotta, that's that
    Rockin it, rockin it, clippership rockin it

    I'm tryin to make an exit with no ripples in the water

    General Commentyou're both wrong

    In October I was introduced as coward

    I'll surf a thousand Mondays and swallow the burns to milk the week for all its got to give me shoddy rotten ribs. Thick forgot my ribs.

    The way my gypsy dances makes a miser retreat to fetal.

    So in a cold dream, I clean around the edges.

    See the root of the mute button was dug up, hug up on a song of...

    Dream, war, love, honor, crime, innocence, tragedy, sunshine
    Friendship, death, passion, heroism, God, suffering, joy, fate
    Destiny, treasure, stars, skull, hunger, murder, silence, mayhem
    Health, pain, space, breath, sound, guilt, pride, time

    Subtle for a cool second. Loud for an hour.

    Fiddling with a theme, dream solid

    Paddle the hole-in-the-bottom dingy to where the portraits astonish
