shhh
Dose:
Well or,
And this is, new york city
Aesop:
Where the shiftiest sources leak out the back door,
For more and this is new york city
Dose:
oh I see these hear walk,
I,
Simply a shade of shephard,
seems we share fate, honestly
Aesop:
(oh now wait a minute)
I notice there making mockeries of mad men,
tend not to bend in the honesty my twenty thousand leagues ending grants sardonic, the sea?
Dose:
(it's pitiful?)
the view from this here segue crowds a listeners nothing special simply
listeners,
how we dissolve its spores and I'll tell you "not flying"?
Aesop:
and I live beneath the scenic (yeah), where the fossils pledged allegiance, where the centipedes and serpents bigot on territorial disagreements,
the uprooted turned booty and hacked pleasure to skinny ribbons and I'll suckle my skull caught beneath assumptions pumping pistons?
Dose:
left the joke to wick, it,
he walks whose out now, we, aesop walls up?
Aesop:
we,
tune out the pouts of hiding,
twilight street merchants, we, deity freely and been here before,
Both:
My place.
Dose:
Murder, of holy, in cushion,
Partisan, part of the ceiling seems to be leaking, oh, oh, it's the wall
Forbid box been broken, from man of everywhere, that's what I sleep, I love you,
Its not easy tying knots, whose paycheck may get rained,
Outstanding I shall smudge, invest, it's dull here, since we need I go beyond,
Grey, lonely, this forest is very very different,
Friend hail things like magnets all the way meant was, [it only takes one slacker] traveling up, it only takes one slacker
Aesop:
It only takes one slacker, to attack a lack, gritty and complies with time with regulations poachers poaching just to jump the batteries,
I'm juiced, noosed father, no dissed deduce by the ambiance of motives and the modus operandi's
I'm supportive, sort of here to modify those monsters tried to sidewind pleasure captains round my hip line,
My sit times on some here I lay my bricks alone to build these walls among us dreams can spread our spores but can I run with the alumnus fungus,
After date rape, and it germs, and I burn for less fortunate starlight chasers forced to use there last match to ward off the glaciers
Pack a day profess cloud spitter literate pencifist missed the pissed drunk of concert
Dull and system missed the funk I'm in a lull
Dose:
I'm thinking of a number from one to red, is a beautiful color?.to shade paper hat ink, I'm thinking of a?.beautiful color?.paper hat
Aesop:
I'm thinking of a number from one to home, one riduiculous tennament with no wings to spread, I'm home again inside my box of cardboard daze, I'm thinking of home, and I'm home again?
Dose:
Funny how, faces show up, waters for me, my mouth and snore
Aesop:
It could've been me but it wasn't
The crash and burn and burn and crash infected could collect fee indirectly but it doesn't
Dose:
(These are broken cards),
given to dues missed of friendly lips tied life is going blank, slap look, it's mirrored universe and one god per so many square feet, and everything counts, higher life forms are dirty, dirt aesop, every penny saved, is this the city of dreams,
Aesop:
and I'm down to earth,
Dose:
I'm down to earth, road.
Aesop:
My zero hour snuffed doc, where the marked the day the mirth burns
The time alotted, knotted loops around the plotted, boycotted the wattages, toys for the prodding of the rotting bottled hostage,
One time down cloud me as the useless playtime string and think it smirked worthy well, your with me, from the icicle sweat to the self pity
Sickly thread bare slid back my needle point life willow, man I purposely spun straw to gold to lace each last stitch perfectly
It must have been the dust, the dust, my god the dust he clutched the dust, father to rust encrust the luck with which I touch togetherness?
Dose:
Toy, bird, In my teeth, empathy, dwell, in merciful spring, friend

    General CommentProps for even trying on the lyrics! Anyone who knows this song or either artist at all, know that it is near impossible to figure out what they are saying word for word; let alone even harder to pull a meaning out of it. This is especially true for Dose.

    General CommentAesop the brain tease. Anyone have any ideas? Odessa's some place in Ukraine where some Jews were massacred...(wiki)

    (I fixed some of the lyrics)
    My zero hour snuffed doc, where the marked the day the mirth burns
    The time alotted, knotted loops around the plot. It boycotted the wattages, toys for the prodding of the rotting bottled hostage,
    Once i doubt-filed me under useless playtime trinket think it smirked worthy well, your with me, from the icicle sweat to the self pity
    Sickly thread bare slid back my needle point life willow, man I purposely spun straw to gold to lace each last stitch perfectly

    His big kick off snuffed out on the day that 'mirth burns' or when laughter starts to hurt...Time consumes you and clings to your plot, your sob story. It boycotts the 'wattages' (your electricity your power)...and all that stress acts as toys that prod your little world. A rotting bottled hostage. (Like a pickled egg)
    Then you file yourself as 'useless'. Your new self label of 'useless' smirks well as you try to relate to friends. Cold nervous sweat and self pity...

    shit i dunno but i wanna know! I need to hear some new angles all i've got are these emotional meanings..

    Anybody have any thoughts??

    Lyric CorrectionHey all,

    I'm not sure all of Aes's songs have one thing that the song is about beyond just a stream-of-consciousness type flow of little ideas which run a few lines each and are patched together into a song. Some do have one clear theme, but I don't think this one does, so I'm not sure we're going to make much progress by looking to the title for clues.

    That being the case, I've tried to work out what he could mean line by line. Here are some suggested corrections to the lyrics above (I could be wrong!).

    "I notice THEY'RE making mockeries..." pedantic, I know, but it clarifies the meaning.
    "my 20 000 leagues END IN GRAND SARDONIC FATIGUE"
    "where the centipedes and serpents BICKERED on ..."
    "the uprooted turned MOODY..."
    "I SUNK MY skull caught between..."
    "It only takes one slacker to attack ALACRITY..."
    "IN COMPLIANCE WITH TYRANT REGULATIONS poachers..."
    "NOOSED BY THE NOTICE, seduced by the ambience..."
    "My sit time's on some 'Here, I lay these bricks alone to build the walls among'..." The punctuation makes the meaning clearer
    "System is DEFUNCT, I'm in a lull..."
    "boycotted the wattages POISED for the prodding of the rotting bottled hostage..."
    "this playtime TRINKET..."
