The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

Up early in the morning before the sun rise
Scrapin' out my pipe tryin' to Stay High
I gotta get blunted for the nine to five
And I need a facelift on my oldschool ride
My scrapin' change to meet the range of my job qualification
But I'm stealin' cable, so I get every station
Now don't let em slay you when they tell you somethings free
They take about half with the taxes fee
But now I'm up in new times just blowin' out some fog
Don't gotta work 'cause I quit my fuckin' job
Walk into my room to a sixty inch tele
And I got a phat deal on my star-tac cele
I finally got a chance to hook my ride up legit
They asked how big I want it, I said biggest that would fit
On airbags it would sit, shit was lookin' sick
System was in it and all I did was pick six

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

If I won the Lotto, I'd buy pounds of Bud
Give it to my homies to show I got love
Dirtbikes and buggies and four wheel drives
I own my own jet, ah yo, I'm world wide
First class fast, take a trip over seas
Me, my girl Ami makin' love on the beach
I just bought a yacht, I just won the Lottery
Never ending buds in my cultivation
So I can smoke out the world in the hempalation
Give some money to my pops, buy my mom a new house
Or anything she wants, no rush just pick it out
Don't worry about the ends plenty bread to be broke
I'll open a skate shop and sell bags of dope
Blow custom glass so I smoke days of hits
I build a greenhouse where my hydro sit
No questions planes trains just to keep you guessin'
The lottery, L-O-T-T-E-are-why
Money signs, green backs, honey blunts and fat sacks
Everything I want and everything I need
A different house for each day of the week
A private lake so I could jet ski
In the back ?? so I shoot geese with my dad
Mini bikes and go-karts I want it all
The Universal Walk, fuck it i'll buy the mall

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

A buck with your booze, What the fuck when I lose
Which one you chose when your baby needs shoes

A buck with your booze, What the fuck when I lose
Which one you chose when your baby needs shoes

A buck with your booze, What the fuck when I lose
Which one you chose when your baby needs shoes

A buck with your booze, What the fuck when I lose
Which one you chose when your baby needs shoes

Since I won the lottery I bought a yacht to fish
I spent a fifth on a house with a satellite dish
I bought a brewery and walk around all day with double fists
And got at least ten pots so I can puke and piss
I got a glass bong for everyday of the week
And yes I stand strong make sure all my family can eat
I bought a fleet of cars all of them V-W
I purchased Yorba Linda made it Richter Avenue
How many of you have had the thought of winnin' the grand prize
All the fat ladies dreamin' of some smaller thighs
And all the guys with your bills stacked up to your eyes
Wouldn't blow your pay checks tryin' to get high
I fly from coast to coast and then I flipped a bitch
On my private leer jet smokin' a pound of krypt
Hired my help from you, my fridge is stocked with Dew
Me and my krew takin' trips to Katmandu

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

The Lottery, you know It's all the Same
Ain't shit Changed just a Big Game
They fuckin' with our brain, it's the Government Strain
Taxes stealin' but they got you trained

    The lottery makes us want to keep buying those damn tickets over and over again, but you never win...

    Kids, if you want to live the good life, don't waste no money on the damn lottery! Instead, get your game tight, save your money so you don't have to get no bundles on consignment, and get yo' ass out there hustlin' and slangin'!

    The Game is the only form of socioeconomic mobility left in this country. And if you're gonna play The Game, boy, you'd better learn to play it right.

    Be good to your customers because they're your most important asset. Never lie to 'em about what you're offering -- if it's mediocre, tell 'em it's mediocre and give 'em a discount price. One day, when you're really packin' fire and you tell 'em it's FIRE, they'll know you ain't fuckin' around. Give 'em honest weights and fair prices. When you schedule a meeting, be there ON TIME, with whatever you said you'd bring. Act like a god damn professional who takes some pride in his business -- and that'll set you apart from the thugs and scumbags trying to compete for your precious customers.

    If you hear someone whistling "The Farmer in the Dell," run the other way. Fast.

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.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.
