The water ain't safe, the land's made of water
I hug a half empty glass my dignity's trying to corner
I'm trying to see the future in a tea cup and a saucer
But I rather be drinking coffee with my cigarette foster
And a run away buckle the cloud-nine fantasy filter to force the
brutal truth
Of daily market place wars through the roof
I mean I stood beneath the icicles that bleed under the yawning
And magically mastered the great absorbing of spirit falling
But I'm sick, I've plowed these fields a thousand times over
Sold botanicle research studies to farmers with whole quarters
And when science proposes to art besides that peace-full sea
I'll be that cat with a ring on a pillow shouting finally
Take a number, the apple seeds rained upon each slumber
A hundred thousand freaks on parade for the village hunter
My every when acted upon has gone loopy
But I play a game called lets prepare barnacle city for the end
or new sink
I split the radius at go getter bellies, reconnaissance
Seeping fossil genie bottle optimist freeze
Run from the fountain but the fountain is a desert optical
tease
Tummy full of sand running man impossible stop
There's a wing in my gut and i'm all dust
Surfing the earth and I dine-rise certainly flushed
Now one in the hands work to and top the toilet seater
But what lies inside my heart is off the mother fucking meter

See the Water ain't safe no more
'I'm just trying to build my self to act as a truley better man
damn'
See the water ain't safe no more
'Nah nah the water ain't safe no more'
I'm just trying to be a solid oak tree for every child to carve
its name across
'The water ain't safe no more'
I'm just trying to be the dream of ever peasant the hurricane
can offer
'I'm just trying to be some body I can talk to in the morining
with a smile'
The Water ain't safe no more..

And i've always been a 40 night chronologic hostage
Rusted hook in the lip of the monarch
Wingless Anime
I don't play in the man race cycle
Hope floater
Gloating inside carnal indifference till doom cops are slight
and
potent quotas
I'm 20 something pumping acrylic tomorrow side ways
Blazing passage with a map tattooed on the back of the classless
Now tip toe across a lost cause
Because a lost cause found
Don't mean you found a cause
That means you found a lost cause
Ok now ive been here for role playing
Slaying my here and now
To benefit consumption for my peers stiring the plow
And its incredible
Handy jackets turn numerals to sentinels
But bad apples ain't sweet and cretins ain't that memorable
I'm Mozart with a focus on the tide
Hiding the inconsistencies of man behind water and wine
I wear a tiger stripped ego and bilbo act my progression
With a kingliness formulated through the flesh of the oppressors
God had a flask I can prove it
You really think the 13 loops that loose daughter
spawned me a sober unit, check potion
Addressed the ghost inside my TV with a ruler
At hear to the back bone stone pusher
Here ten thousand hackers deep in a movment
Thats 20,000 crucial ruby heels clicking in unisan
It's beautiful, truly beautiful
I keep a stick inside my hand
and carve my name inside every wall of the falling hologram

See the Water ain't safe no more
'I'm just trying to build my self to act as a truley better man
damn'
See the water ain't safe no more
'Nah nah the water ain't safe no more'
I'm just trying to be a solid oak tree for every child to carve
its name across
'The water ain't safe no more'
I'm just trying to be the dream of ever peasant the hurricane
can offer
'I'm just trying to be some body I can talk to in the morining
with a smile'
The Water ain't safe no more...

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite lines by Aesop, ever:

    "And when science proposes to art besides that peace-full sea
    I'll be that cat with a ring on a pillow shouting finally"


    I think in his head he's saying he'll be the ring-bearer at the wedding because he'll be so excited that science and art are finally on the same page which is what humanity needs (to integrate and work together) that he'll have first row seating to the wedding.

    But I prefer my own image and philosophy that this lyric conjures up in my head. Which is, by the time science and art become one he'll have already gotten married and moved on with his life. It didn't matter to him if it never happened, but of course there's always that side of you that wants to see humanity rise to a higher level. So I envision myself waking up in the morning on my pillow next to my wife. She tells me that science and art are finally married. "Finally" I say. But I say it in a chill way, I'm happy, but I didn't let the outcome of it all run my life. Like I said it didn't matter either way I as a person am not going to sit around waiting for something that might not ever happen. I'm going to get married (doesn't have to be marriage whatever you think life is all about) and live my life and not be dependent on 'what if's'...Does that make sense to anyone? Cause I fucking love that line.

    General CommentSketch use your brain and your knowledge of literature. Just look at the very first part of the song.

    "The water ain't safe, the land's made of water
    I hug a half empty glass my dignity's trying to corner
    I'm trying to see the future in a tea cup and a saucer
    But I rather be drinking coffee with my cigarette foster"

    is essentially saying

    "The essence of life is no longer safe, the place you live in is built of this unsafe substance, my mind is pessimistic and we're addicted to things that hurt us."

    General Commentthis song is amazing. I never understood this line though...

    "God had a flask I can prove it
    You really think the 13 loops that loose daughter
    spawned me a sober unit"

    General Commenttaking a stab at these lines:

    My every whim acted upon's gone loopy
    But I play a game called let's prepare barnacle city for the end-all noosings
    I split the radius at go-getter bellies, reconnaissance
    Seeping fossil genie bottle optimist; Freeze!
    Run for the fountain but the fountain's a desert optical tease
    Tummy full of sand. Running man? Impossible. Stop!
    There's a wing in my gut and I'm all dust
    Surfing the earth and itineris' certainly flushed
    Now one in the hand's worth two atop the toilet seater
    But what lies inside my heart is off the motherfucking meter

    itineris->itinerant:wandering, roving, nomadic, vagrant, migratory
