Two times for the drummer 'fore I start it I say
"Hit me!"
Puba's kickin' flavor, and I brought somebody with me

Positive, the gentlemen, the rapper
Suave, blase, you know dapper

See this is not a song about friends
Because we make the ends, and then we spread the skins

This song becomes a well known tune
And my mic's gonna bloom like a flower in June

We kick much flavor, and you know that
As smooth as the head on a Fed named Kojak

Grip the mic till my hand get calloused
And I'll tell you like Ralph Kramden told Alice
"Bang, zoom!"

It's up, up and away

Grand Puba

And Positive K

Lyrics real sweet like candy

It's just like a condom

We keep one handy!
Go Puba, go Positive
Go Puba, go Positive
Go Puba, go Positive
Go Puba, go Positive

To my adversaries, I'm not ordinary
Not the Godfather, or the Tooth Fairy
Not Jack Spade or Engelbert Humperdink
Listen to this rhyme, and tell us what you think

One, two, three, Grand Puba's on the count
Rhyming gets me papes in very large amount
Brother, you're wrong if you think crime pays
Don't like gays, and take vacations overs holidays

Practice safe sex to prevent strange diseases
Wear my hat, on one night skeezers
I roll dice, but don't bet on the horses
Punks take losses, and I don't reveal my sources

So, um, take the fifth if you're planning to riff
The rhymes spread like Jiff to make your loose knot stiff
Kick up your feet if you're feeling kinda queasy
Relax, (ha ha) take it easy!

You're in good hands, Positive is a survivor
I make rhymes of anything; I'm like McGuyver
If I were a computer, rap would be my program
Since I'm a righteous man, I don't eat ham
I wish more people was alive like me

But Positive

What up, Max?

See, the vocab is lovely, girls be thinkin' of me
Other rappers try to be me, competition can't see me
So, hey, whaddaya say? I got the flow, y'all
If you don't know the time, then you better check the Seiko
Or Timex, I suplex, get biz on the cossacks
Put 'em in a line then I ask, "Who's next?"
Grand Puba, guaranteed to make a big hit
Doin' much damage on this two-man skit
Trying to hold me back won't harm me
And when the gear gets too small, it's for the Salvation Army
So mommy, or mida, away I say, "No one's sweeter!"
(Now, that's funky!)
You see, the style I kick is rugged, I shine like a nugget
Present tense mean you dig it, past tense mean you dug it!
So dance to a light tune, my little doll
Da-nah-nah, da-nah-nah, da-nah-nah, dah
Rock me wit' vibration
Give me a deep meditation
There is none betta than Grand Puba
Baby be get it all togetha
You see the second time around
I hope the label don't flake
And if they do, I go to Drake and say, "Give me a break."
Like Toyota say, I say (Oh, what a feeling)
I bust the foots of Lionel Richie
I caught him dancing on my ceiling

Pass me the mic 'cause I wants to blitz
I'm the best thing that came since grits
The Prince of Rap, lookin' for Cinderella
If you see her, why don't you tell her
I got the shoe in the car out back?
And if she makes the fit, she's in like that
And as a matter of fact
I'm not an actor, but the main factor
Pinpoint and his rhymes is like a protractor
I'm intricated, complicated
Definitely musically related
Rhymes so fly, never been outdated
Gots to be fly by the way I state it
Now, of myself, I say I'm a big fan
Got more rhymes than words by the Letterman
Positive K, you can say he's low key
You might know my name, but, now, look you don't know me
I can be nice and flip like the Son of Sam
Nobody knows exactly how I am
I'm the next, and everybody knows it
Open tours this year, next year I'm a close it
I've got the skills that pays the bills, now
Here's a quote from Stephanie Mills
Don't put a rush on me 'cause my tempo's slow
And if I don't tell you, then how would you know?

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
So this has favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.
