You are not alone. (I might be alone... but you are probably not)


I know you feel it
rap is wack so I'm back to spittin
middle-aged man never learned to fit in
I'm the one guy who can name the sickness
every other artist talks ass and licorice

yo, I know you feel it
that gnawing, nagging, numbing, blogging, tagging, thumbing, Buzzfeed
streaming, meme-ing, content coma
everything is free but I'm bored as shit

my malaise don't fit in the animated gif
I have feelings that can't be expressed with kittens
even the most freestyled now sounds written
all coalesced into four loud kick drums
uh uh uh - big surprise
what's the new sound, y'all?
look me in the screen while I look you in the eyes, kid
I'm the last naked voice you'll recognize

I wanna get back into
I wanna get back into
I wanna get back into the water

I wanna get back into
I wanna get back into
I wanna get back into the water

I know you feel it
that runaway science, that greater good
that real thin line 'tween could and should
that nature's end, that irish bull:
that gods are men whose minds are full

yo, I feel the heavy
not prepped for when the levee breaks
no more history, no mistakes
your life is cake
but something is wrong
your artists fail
to write the song
that illustrates this
encrypted love
that we take to
like swine to mud
that Icarus blood
that shoots you up
and wears you out
like fitted gloves
you shackled doves
you mired saints
embrace the canvas
erase the paint
you know this road
can not end well
we'll burn in heaven
you choirs of hell

I wanna get back into
I wanna get back into
I wanna get back into the water

[repeat ad nauseam]
