about

Demo single from the upcoming EP "demo".

Vocals recorded on tape in a closet somewhere.

lyrics

Another song from the green book,
Another sad song with bad hook,
Another damn wrong with a bad look,
(look, look)

I’ve spent years trying to find my bearings,
Instead wrote rhymes and dine with red barons,
And still blame my problems on Red Herring
(Herring, hearing)

Your voice dear, sure makes me sick
Stomach flip, and do weird shit,
Someday, I’ll say what I can’t admit

Adamant actions, half-assed for the fraction of times
Assign to manage my time to make these assets
Jump like Kris Kross, priorities criss-crossed,
Sail off like Chris Cross, escape to blow off time

Instead I rather slump on my couch watching Cowboy Bebop,
Vibe to Aesop, sop in the night air,
And make my own dada hip-hop,
Won’t stop, can’t stop
Diddy bop my ass to welfare,
Quote on my raps like “who cares”
Divvy-up my rations and small shares
Parlay it all for a calling
That my heart claims is not here
(Man it’s not here)

Sample:

Note to myself:
(close your eyes now, close your eyes now)
The only people who like your paintings
(feel with your tongue)
Are people who like to look at naked people
(don't let things get out of control. No means no and never, yes.)
The only reason your paintings are popular is because they have naked people in them
(empty hearts lack blood. empty hearts lack blood.)
Also, your paintings are not popular
(empty hearts lack blood. Feel with your tongue.)

(I love everyone I meet. I love girls and boys, I probably even love you. Love is really wonderful, especially if you love a lot of people, just not one. One is lonely, a lot is fun. I like fun, I like love; love, love, love, love.)
