Don't ever fucking question that (6x)

[Slug]
Enough to hold you to the brightest of lights,
to place you dangerously close to that sun,
enough to acknowledge the flaws you can't ignore
and recognize the cause of what's done is done,
more than enough to put my name behind my ideals,
and neglect my logic twice daily.
enough to keep me looking for my lucy in the sky with gems,
when I remember how you used to call me baby,
enough to look in my mirror with detest
for every tear you shed regardless of why you wept,
enough to curse any man who can't appreciate the depth
of the ocean I swam till I ran out of breath.

I love you, don't ever fucking question that,
that's why we'll probably never get along.
if I was better at finding the right words to say,
I wouldn't need to write these motherfucking songs.

[Slug]
I love you, I love you (faded)
never, don't ever fucking question that,
don't ever fucking question that.
riding the public transit,
I study the blank stares to answer my questions
of how and why I got so many grey hairs.
I take care of the nervous that runs through my extension cord,
and I reflect on that reoccurring dream where we met the Lord.
single file lines, to give her a pound one at a time
but when i faced her- I attempted to embrace her, she looked so fine,
I awoke from my sleep before her bodyguard had a chance to beat me
to submission and I still walk with my religion.
I watched the children scurry in circles around a two-way mirror,
worrying about which side of the glass projects the reflection clearer.
I hear the whispers of the wind trying to get me to grin,
gassing' me up about the love that I plucked and I've been stuck within,
for every eclipse that stares at me
from the other side of a paper cup of espresso-
I light a match beneath a kettle,
and for ever set of lips that become attached and equipped with that program
to seek success, i bleed my ethics out a slow drip.
I used to know a man who met a woman, dont remember where,
big beautiful eyes and light brown hair,
she was from the burbs, he was from the south side of the city,
this was back when Franklin avenue was still pretty.
two different worlds apart, but the world is just a small town-
we all know how people like to get down.
here we go, aquarius, pisces,
feel the flow of the fluid as I swim through it to free my soul.
bush shoved the cane without the glove numbed the pain.
the magic from up above what it does for the brain,

make the love, paint the picture,
write the song, the player met a virgin made a virgo named him sean.
make the love, paint the picture,
write the song, the player met a virgin made a virgo named him sean.
make the love, paint the picture
and write that song till the break of dawn.

[Slug]
I love you- don't ever fucking question that,
that's why we'll probably never get along.
if I was better at finding the right words to say,
I wouldn't have to write these motherfucking songs.(2X)
I love you (make the love, paint the picture,
and write that song [in faded background]).
I love you.. I love you..

    General Comment"It's all been said before
    buried in a metaphor
    Lucy is hip-hop and Jacob's a prince
    Sean is an old man and Slug is a PIMP now"
    - Slug (from "Doomage" - Sage Francis feat. Brother Ali & Slug)

    General Commenti' m pretty sure the line is supposed to be " push shoved the cane without the glove" instead of "bush shoved..." this song is about the birth of slug' s son and his long time love, lucy, who he has written many, many songs about.

    General Commenti think lucy is referring to lucifer. im not positive, but in every song where slug uses lucy, lucy is a woman that hates with a strong passion. so maybe its not just one woman who was his long time love. I think its his interpretation of every woman thats fucked him over. the pain they caused him is like they were sent straight from hell.

    To me, "pound" means just a greeting, maybe a fist tap. But does anyone think it means sex?

    I love that, because he adds in his parents here. I think? Anyways, his parents didn't stay together, but I enjoyed that little bit. Atmosphere is amazing, it's only hip-hop/rap that I'll listen to because his thoughts are so beautiful portayed through his lyrics.
