It's a lazy afternoon (everybody wake up)
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) it's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) (that's right, lay back to back)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(The Roots in the house) (lay back and relax, let the sun shine)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
It's a lazy afternoon (lay back and relax, let the sun shine) (one, two)

Consider this a message to my mellow in the front seat
Of the Jeep pumpin' beats for your rump
In the summertime I'm risin' to the shine at 12:20
Ghetto streets are sunny, niggas is gettin' money
It's mad hot, and what I got to do I'm not sure of
I call up Maura, this dip I know from Bora Bora
Was rappin' for a second 'bout what I reckoned that I
Was doin' at six, she was invitin' me to the flicks
That I'm with, blew a kiss, click now I'm in the shower
I meant the bath in which I simmer for half an hour
Then got drier, put on attire to inspire
Hit my dresser for numbers of women that I admire
Laid around and lounged 'til around two
Then I got up and ate, drank a brew and caught a page from the crew
Sayin', "Where ya at? Later, meet us up at the Plat
Bring a sack, ayo, it's Saturday, it's gonna be fat"
Now it's 3:37 and I still ain't left the rest
Electric Relaxation from A Tribe Called Quest
With the boom, tokin', smokin', coolin' out
As I parlay in my room 'cause it's a lazy afternoon

It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) it's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) (come on)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Black Thought in the house) (lay back and relax, let the sun shine)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine)
It's a lazy afternoon (on, two)

Consider this a message to my mellow in the front seat
Of the Jeep pumpin' beats for your rump
In the summertime I'm risin' to the shine at 12:20
Ghetto streets are sunny, niggas is gettin' money
It's mad hot, and what I got to do I'm not sure of

Was rappin' for a second about what I reckoned that I

Electric Relaxation from A Tribe Called Quest
With the boom, tokin', smokin', coolin' out
As I parlay in my room 'cause it's a lazy ahh

It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) it's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) (Black Thought from The Roots, y'all)
It's a lazy afternoon

It's a lazy afternoon (uh)

Consider this a message to my mellow in the front seat (huh)
Of the Jeep pumpin' beats for your rump
In the summertime I'm risin' to the shine at 12:20
Ghetto streets are sunny, niggas is gettin' money
It's mad hot, and what I got to do I'm not sure of

That I'm with, blew a kiss click Now I'm in the shower
I meant the bath in which I simmer for half an hour
Then got drier, put on attire to inspire (yo)
Hit my dresser for numbers of women that I admire (yo, yo)
Laid around and lounged 'til around two
Then I got up and ate, drank a brew and caught a page from the crew
Sayin', "Where ya at? Later, meet us up at the Plat
Bring a sack, ayo it's Saturday, it's gonna be fat"
Now it's 3:37 and I still ain't left the rest
Electric Relaxation from A Tribe Called Quest (relaxation, please settle down)
With the boom, tokin', smokin', coolin' out
As I parlay in my room cause it's a lazy afternoon

It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) it's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)

It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine) it's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine)
It's a lazy afternoon
(Summertime, as I recline) (it's a lazy afternoon)
(Lay back and relax, let the sun shine)

That's it, that's it, that's it
And then we'll start the next song right here

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."
