Adolescence 02:30
ch. damn I'm tired of this / arrested development extended banana / clip adolescence damn I'm tired of this / arrested development extended banana / clip adolescence every day I'm always firing off my mouth... gotta let it spray until I get it out... every day I'm always firing off my mouth... gotta let it spray until I get it out... v1. had the same nerves / since I was seven called a weird nerd / then loathing set in so i built worlds / out of some Legos I made a fantasy / and never let go so I had an ego / told I was gifted so I acted out / yeah I will admit it but the responses / started new wounds I almost lost it / wanted my own doom from then I felt off / and was excluded confidence lost / not once exuded love with contracts / terms and conditions solid ground lacked / caused indecisions told to cut it out / but no exorcism threats via shouts / were un-convincin’ yet still held me down / fear is a prison lost never found / and failed the mission v2. and this continued / it's ever present pulses like sinew / this spiral descent told it's my own fault / i broke my own heart stuck in my own vault / made my own false start so I just held back / and didn't speak up so then I fell back / was such a weak bud a later bloomer / a second mover subject of rumors / connected loser so I found ways / to build denial yeah self deception / was always my style making big claims / without any action inside I feared change / and sought distraction so I let things drop / half of it nervous the other half because / I didn't deserve it the lies all in toned / attached in my head are coming undone / I'll make the past dead
ch. (x2) all you do is steal you're not real holding no appeal sucker game in a gallery living fallacy v1. Out in New York getting paid Stealing from otaku artists all day Twitter call outs getting you so enraged But you steal everything you ever made Just like I borrowed this flow from the Migos except I gave credit said it's from the Migos And rhyme the same words just like I was Nikki You think Art's Nikki but you are just Iggy Damn, you think you're out making plans But really just xeroxed to make all your grands Spewing some nonsense while clipping some lines Trying to tell yourself you're Lichtenstein All of your skill is just Shintaro Kago's Plagarism is your lifestyle and motto Think you're the greatest, but really you're not You're just super salty because you caught v2. You claim it's collage but it's really a joke You're just selling copies to nouveau-riche blokes Though Wall Street wolves often trading derivatives I take it back, maybe your art, they're getting it That gallery owner whose cutting your checks Whose out catching cases, they know that you're dreck Sure they knew one day the dots would connect Now the game's over, the scam has been wrecked Made a career built off hype and some lies Scooby otaku ripped off your disguise Nobody to talk to cept art blogs that try To redirect shade that you brought to your skies So try to deny but with functioning eyes Your intent is obvious, do not be shy Look it's okay to be ever so basic With your whole aesthetic just copy and pasted
Trash 03:00
ch. (x2) you say I'm all you need but I can't be that cute I'm just the trash you leave that's the entire truth v1. I've got two passports, they don't mean much visits fall apart, feeling outta touch rather stay at home, since I purchased one even with a with zone, I'm feeling nervous cause nothing's set in stone, and I've taken Ls a neurotic wreck, never feeling well keeping people distant, but I'll keep making checks even when alone, it's onward direct but I've gotta a partner, yeah I've gotta equal respect her agency, because I'm not evil not that kind of selfish, like the world taught try to be selfless, but sometimes feelings caught but I've seen woke and morals, call for pure destruction resting on their laurels, til there is subduction then the masks are off, the attacks are on then the tasks become, more than fits in songs v2. try to leave it be, and just let time heal it like modern Jay Z, I am not dealing anxious every time, when I go on errands self loathing blinds, feeling trauma barren never was a baron, because I'm too cautious call it cowardice, but I'm just feeling nauseous guess the tightest ropes, that I'll ever find aren't for walking on, but they're in my mind used to fire play, could've been brutal and that thoughts broth, it stays on my noodle hope for better days, hope that I'm useful recovering from loss, on certain things? futile. and I don't have escapes, I can't run away under things that cake, layers that delay got decades to run, more than marathons So be intransigent, me I'll carry on
U.D.P. 02:51
if you're not here to byte flows / you likely wanna bite flows admire my otaku cool / if you pass you're psycho cut to black and notice that / you're just wearing your night clothes wondering if what occurred / was really mental hype though thoughts are more substantial / than the homonym implied wait it's circumstantial / plus consider what's bellied if your dogma designates / ideals over people it results in greater hate / and pushes salacious evil sickness is the default / i guess I'm ill-equipped competitor's ill-equipped / to recognize other gifts so they look it in the mouth / while the words falls out and that river flows fast / need to swim all out but they're looking crusty / in the water they're drownin no laughs, lacking dignity / yet we're all clownin try to cut a smile / now everyone's frownin blade's the wrong approach / but I cross these sounds then i gotta a lot jokes / but everyone loves my zingers could bring truth through the smoke / but people wanna see dingers if devil men battle angels / is anyone here a winner this geo fronting is hell / but this isn't for beginners giant robot in the sky / I guess I got the plug suit fly to the most high / like I Mecha drug move everyone's connected / because that's what a plug do covenant's electric / so crossing paths could plug you station's not stationary / target is never centered paper which we had married / exits right as it enters so the chase keeps on / regardless of status like sun will bring dawn / regardless of atlas what is on shoulders / could be brushed off and over with a temperamental tweet / and unquestioning soldiers not sure if I'll hope that / things fumble and moulder or get too woke like / a half pound of Folgers misspelled confessions / are just coffee cup names usually below mention / as the results are the same but all those baristas are / unlike barristers let alone those who'd / write laws parroted those who'd choose means / to give power to their keys the Glock click or locksmith / can give power to the dream the blocks clique and soft myths / only differ in the scene sanctions or sanctioned / is actually everything walled garden rules keep / it all overgrown right can be wrong / when you write the wrong tomb written in the wrong zone / fight for rights like song on 1980s MTV / but those days are long gone ironically though / spaces have greater access through payola dough / still baked through the axis we no longer need / DAT demos and faxes but that demo needs / a cute face and fat asses preferably from cities / with a dead hot address with bodies to climb / key to growin the fastest never built in a day / so you must learn to roam yet a top flight hub / must be base for your home sing a lotta cheese / cause the clout is calzone sellouts must please / or be without and alone and if you ever rest / the vlogs come through and bleat you could have a chuchesta / claim you've met defeat so kernels stay heated / to stay popping in the streets Orville Reddenbockin / lest you forfeit your seat but kernels crash too / tables flipped in a second cause half's what you moved / versus your prior records and you never rollback / so just never hold back if you see a cold stack / just be blunt and roll that later can redact / accidental enmity but now grab chances / to enter growth industries
intro: hey, Archangelo and the Eastside Gentlemen look at the Ichiban hey, Sailor Pelligrino hey, Helena St. Tessero look at the Ichiban ch. x2 Kaz Kaan with the toblerone can't leave the game alone Kaz Kaan with the toblerone and you know I'm in the zone v1. looking clean, looking neat boy doin' work not a neet boy gotta clean up the streets boy martini caprese boy catch flak from the east side old money just tells lies snap back with hand blasts knocked out on ya damn ass melancholy is the average til demons go savage gotta stay stacking cabbage field hockey I ravage if a demon once talks shit they get hit with the chocolate head slap with the Toblerone exercised from your home v2. chocolate bars that I spaz on verses slayed like I'm Kaz Kaan all I do are the dope flows here in Neo Yokio I'd rather be a sad boy but Lord help you if I'm mad boy nobody gonna stop me nor Lexy and Gottleib even when things get shady and it gets hella crazy perfect game and great plans mecha butlers and top brands ensure top victory remembrancers ain't stickin' me try to give me your very worst I'll chop it down just like a Hirst
Ever Did 02:26
ch. nobody can take it farther than we ever did nobody can fly it higher than we ever did nobody can bring it harder than we ever did and nobody's gonna not know that we ever did v1. born to fight, but need a lane need a light, to bring the pain spark a change, start a reign cause if I don't, I'll go insane must follow through on my purpose and break though the surface but I can't sync cause I'm nervous but then you're crossing my vision evolving my mission force me to make new decisions nothing to fear as I spy you and though I may try to I know that I'll never deny you enter and now it's all starting my ego’s not starving once you're there calling me darling v2. poisonous, blackest widow containment fields, broken windows crash through walls, smash them all as I can feel, you're in my thrall entirely new worlds created and cross-pollinated sync is beyond elevated teammates transgressing the boundary melding like a foundry seemingly solving the quandary mysteries finally unraveled perspective is babel every last foundation rattled trust me we're only just starting for you I've been starving been searching so long for my darling
Nowadays 02:16
ch. Nowadays I don't sign autographs (no more) Nowadays nobody's wanting that (no more) Now I'm paying bills (yeah), work a 9 to 5 (yeah) I have come to terms with my average life (yeah, yeah) v1. Used to move the fire mixtapes out the backpack At the con meeting new friends from the aim chat Cell phone dumb but the texts let us track that Buddy with DSLR took a sec to snap that Used to see that anime life on the nightly Con to the next one chatting via skype we Never thought it'd end, but more growing up did Thought we had it all solved, but actually we were kids Keystyles like this used to go in the netbook Used to gawk at cons at bishoujo in the wetlook Used to dream about reading doujin at a maid cafe Now they'll bury me in Akiba once I pass away Used to walk alone, now a million run in front of me All so independent, yeah not one's the son of me Holla to the nakama and midnight society Came up after me, but y'all made it reality v2. Now I'm making decent money writing these web sockets I'm the big time SDE... And you should hear me talking to the co-op interns And listen what they say to me... Used to write reviews full of crazy details Now all I do is fight old code that won't scale Like to switch frameworks but I lack the authority So bugs swarm while I build my seniority Putting on pounds from bluetooth vending machines Vacation days gotta accrue, so I'm pending a dream What's a room with a view out in the Dotonburi When I know my return will be a sullen hurry Everything collected on a shelf put away Never rewatched, left alone to decay Removed once but now everything is boxed, Memory erased, ethereal and lost
Nandaba 03:15
ch. (x2) life is hard for nandaba ninamori, haruhara, samejima, firestarters, flying v, rickenbockers medical mechanica space police panic medical mechanica space police panic v1. every single day here is the same nothing happening and everything's lame brokenhearted girls play many games also guilty of riding in that lane under bridges lewd moments reside keeping secrets and feelings inside finally confront with nothing to hide not my fault that she's going to cry sudden confrontation then interrupts bass to my skull leaves me concussed didn't see it coming no time to duck maybe that'll finally change my luck finally home but what should I see vespa woman who assaulted me making dinner for my family lost my cool and I did so fully even though I know I've taken damage can't bare to see beneath the bandage think it might hide a brand new appendage hope it goes away and my body mends it finally time to confront and unload said I don't care if you overflow if that isn't best then I'll never know swear my forehead's ready to explode v2. now it's lights off with robots and mechs id unlocked with emotions unchecked couldn't stop it with a glock and tec but a rickenbocker swing can connect put an alien god in a void back inside the skull of a young boy sour bitter moments fusing with joy waiting for the next bot to deploy giant iron trying to flatten the crease spacey police trying to seal in a beast hungry girl trying to lock down a feast borrowed powers coming up on their lease canti pray I don't face them again canti pray I save all of my friends in this madness I'm here to defend swing the bat like my old brethren empty-headed here with nothing but angst but alive again with nothing but thanks hybrid rainbow moving upward and out finally saying something when I dare shout mechanica still has a surprise white mist tries to choke out the skies keep us inside to validate lies but I've grown ready to defy greater worlds, I now know exist double neck guitars held in my fist pirate king and a god and a man not a boy now so forget your plans no nori left for eyebrows no reason to be shy now nothing left to deny now only option to try now
Ch. I've never been as good As I ever said here Without all of your patience I'd have been dead here But there is not a way... To bring back yesterday... The history erased... The moment betrayed... V1. Used to chill with my otaku every Friday 7pm we were speeding down the highway Already socialized for 5 or 6 hours But now we're all hungry and need something to devour Cause forget going home, where we're all alone Existential dread calls? We don't pick up the phone Just for a second we're all looking for the mystic Even if that's just the International District Didn't get it in the moment; no honestly I missed it Moved on to the next one. The past? I rage quit it Cause I had to be me, and obtain a degree Become the person who I was destined to be And all of this something that I gotta keep saying Cause one element that's static, one thing that's staying Is that I stay nostalgic even though I move forward Generating feelings that just create more words V2. Now there's people that I'll never see again Or get in the same room cause they're long past friends Things had to change to create a better base line Though I don't even see folks over FaceTime Just as much to blame for not keeping the balance Being a great friend to everyone isn't a talent That I've ever displayed, so folks feel betrayed And gradually a never is built out of delays And it becomes hard just to spit about shows Cause I no longer have all of those I kept close Half of the fun was discussing it on the weekly Deep down I knew it'd never come together neatly Suppose it could've been worse if I fell into urges And didn't hold back my inner most merciless But it was trivial to look forward to that dream But now nothing is the same, as it wasn't what it seemed V3. Now people who I'd never have disparaged Aren't an after thought to be invited to my marriage People who I used to keep it all confided in Are now people that I know I won't find again Until I'm retired and browsing the obituaries Terrifies me that the thought isn't even scary Come to terms that even if there is afterlife I'll stay away forever cause I know I'll never set it right Too much gossip, politics and bad blood Turned friendship to hate, or even worse to bad love And even those I curse I actually kinda miss But it's way worse when circumstances just shift What if work and age hadn't gotten in the way - Would we still read manga every single Friday? Instead I made an early finish to a belated start And left them with a bad taste; conversation heart
Run Away 02:28
ch. You put me on trial Though I was just a child I gotta run away Til I can face the pain You knew it was wrong To shoot me down so long I gotta run away Til I can face the pain v1. I've been feeling trashy Never classy Dry excellence Guess it's all Subarashi yet I've been feeling tore up Super sore gut Pure reticence Then I fall Back to core cuts but Gotta find new way Every few days Anxiety Resurrects Nothing's okay so Forget my initials Heart is crystal Outside of me Stamens sit Need no pistils now v2. I don't gotta say names Just encode things Til my load change Till my flow Brings that pain, blame Bound to need a breather But I seether Learning leader Turning cold Thoughts on freezer Cowering from violence Trying silence More than frightened But a hold Tries compliance Everything is broken Sold as tokens Wreckage smokin’ That's my soul Watch it floatin'
