What?
I am a man of God
Boy, hush, Henny is in your name and your blood
Get in here

Uh
I backflip on this beat (Backflip)
Feeling like a faucet, got a bit of reprieve
I got a whole lotta thoughts that I simmer to peak (Yeah)
Then I serve it to my homies like a dinner for free
I feel amiss like I'm missin' a beat
Don't get it twisted, I be groovin', never missin' a beat (Never)
When Stool speak, know the masses bruise the loose leaf
Uh, yeah, yeah
I'm talkin' article reviews
I'm like an artist in the news
I'm like an artisan with tunes (Yeah)
I'm the sergeant of the boom bap
This is doom rap sprinkled with some loose scraps (Loose scraps)
You know the rules
You know that Stool needs his naptime (I need to sleep)
And I'm probably gonna be back by noon
Maybe, I don't know
I'll be back, like, I, I don't know, I'll be back in like a little bit
I just gotta go to my car real quick (I, I gotta, I gotta go)

I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get high, I don't wanna get high)
I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get high)
I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get, I don't wanna get high)
I don't wanna get high with you no more

We started out in the parking lot with the windows up (Windows up)
Hotboxing, fishbowling
Whatever you wanna call it (Call it)
Freestylin', eyes all foggy, super giggly
I told my mama that I just needed an antihistamine
Hazy history, breaking trees like Bunyan (Chop, chop, chop)
Hit the corner store, Gatorade and Funyuns (Yeah)
Baby lunged younguns using apples for a different function
Is it a skunk or some really old cheese?
It doesn't matter, the breeze will escort the stench eventually (Yeah)
Blowing in the wind, celestial anemones
Deep-fried friends of the devil with a bag of bones
Sparkin' up asparagus and prank callin' strangers' phones
Blazed, baked, stoned, Talking Heads buzzed
Drive around the neighborhood, same as it ever was
And nowadays, I like the solitude of toking (Solitude of toking)
Staring at the ceiling fan, I'm talking to myself again (Talking to—)

I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get high, I don't wanna get high)
I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get high)
I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get, I don't wanna get high)
I don't wanna get high with you no more

We used to meet up at the playground
That's where we would lay down
Back in the day, stood knee-high to an eight-ounce
Hidden in the backwoods with mischievous intentions
Most of us with soda cans and other inventions
Pen caps, sockets, rockets, antennas and wrenches
In the December weather warmin' up the benches
It was the heat of the moment burnin' my very soul
When we were gettin' high, the nights were never very cold
But then we would take the way around to try to get home
The edge of the knife, that shit was blunted, yeah, it need the wet stone
You better be careful or you'll be livin' beneath a headstone
I better be fearful of crossin' the line if I'ma keep goin'
So farewell and adieu to you and the world
Now who handed me this fistful of pearls?
I'm outtie 5000, you ever forget why?
Catch me at the ten-year, maybe we'll get high

I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get high, I don't wanna get high)
I said, I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get high)
Yeah, I don't wanna get high with you no more
(I don't wanna get, I don't wanna get high)
I said, I don't wanna get high with you no more

We started out in the parking lot with the windows up, windows up
Hotboxing (Feeling like a faucet, got a bit of reprieve, I got a—)
Freestylin', eyes all foggy, super giggly
(The edge of the knife, that shit was blunted)
(Yeah, it need the wet, you better be—)
In the parking lot with the windows up, windows up
(Then I serve it to my homies like a dinner for free, dinner for free)
Told my mama that I just needed an antihistamine
(You better be careful or you'll be livin' beneath a headstone)

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
