Friends 03:00
ch. no new friends and no old friends in my feelings so alone cannot pretend no new friends and no old friends in my feelings so alone cannot pretend let me go to swim across the river cold as winter but I never shiver let me go to swim across the river cold as winter but I never shiver v1. got out of the city in the nick of time didn't fit me, feeling like it's quitting time but still I'm catching losses out on either side all these human sacrifices make me wanna cry got everything but still feeling unfulfilled cause things don't matter the drama still spills and I'm not talking bout all of the gossip news closest people are the ones that I tend to lose ooh... not supposed to talk about that gotta keep it closed and maybe walk around that but I don't know why, I can never speak directly but put it in verse, and suddenly it don't effect me wait a minute, chotto matte a second I've gotten off topic, a little aside I recon so let me get back to what I'll never get back it doesn't matter how I rap, I cannot effect that v2. no support without emotional extortion despite privilege it's blown out of proportion no love, just equivalent exchanges despite loss these feelings stay deranged everything already decays rapidly yet people want me to throw more out vapidly left asking, is this really how it had to be so many never coming back, still they're mad at me forget y'all, feeling yeezy appalled but I don't have the racks to throw around at the mall I'm not out to live a life that's parodied guess I want more than consumer therapy that's a moment of clarity, no vvs I just miss my friends from the bbs guess I'm trying to learn like it's pbs because so much is gone that I'm needy yes
Subtext 03:15
v1. returned again with at least another ten flows but if I'm a rap god I'm Akane Shinjo messy high school room stacked with garbage only make tragedies though we are artists lacking the emotions to properly like you broke brain children spawning nothing but Kaiju busted specs worn despite any resets fill the spaces in with things we don't need yet a catchment that shows a lack of detachment clinging to a past though we can't get back then and hope we find a path before the track ends or wipe it from existence like all those track friends as we made the villains that rebuild and destroy we made the heroes who defeat and deploy we make giant mecha fight terrible lizards while the ground shudders an unbearable shiver ch. (x2) can't read emotions can't grasp the subtext can't make connections can't know a love yet v2. calibur could never be a match for a blade decisions made to implode rather than save despite the action from those we wished loved us the plans dreamed up all implode luckless can't help but let the condescension start too late now for sorries and redemption arcs made those who go past our specification and greet that with hatred instead of elation those who would seek to find higher elevations we drag them all down, keep them under our station and feign innocence that slides to disgust gaslights dimmed to ensure a distrust do it all for all people barring anyone close every other audience is getting the most try to deny the fear, but frankly these folks have seen through the mirrors, all the mist & the smoke
ch. Can only assume that hell dreamed it Wish I didn't know who Belle Delphine is Stream chasers that only think with their penis Stalking anyone willing to be their Venus I'm not here to knock the work Just those obsessed all over the Earth, yeah Pity that one's greatest worth Is held in the hand of internet jerks, yeah v. Probably could not deny if the math offered The chance to make bank by selling the bath water Embrace meme hood or maybe just die tryin But to ignore the chance is really to die cryin' Break boys or end up a broke toy with no Buzz If Woody is the viewer then Peeps how you show love Or else forget fame if you can't stand the fortune The point'll be moot the first second you're borin' But this decision shouldn't even have to be made People oughta be respectful of those making their way People shouldn't have to tap thirsts just quench their's Thoughts get bought up that shoulda stayed on the bench there And as long the merch moves I could never deny The opportunity to find a way to survive Can't hate player one for trying to capitalize But the audience shouldn't force it into a life
Haunting Me 02:14
ch. I'm never alone You're haunting me All at my side Won't let me be So I'll stay around While all you leave My tepid strides Somehow more free v1. strength in inexperience never known delirium couldn't know the consequence would leave me the imperium anxiously held from mistakes yet slipped past the barricades never had a form to break yet still had a hand to play v2. walking on while others left sometimes feeling reticent no time to remain bereft some how it's so innocent knowing when I hold the line hands recall a guided path mea culpas all the time staying is worth all the wrath
Laced Up 03:07
v1. I'm in action, Looking for endless distraction Broken fractions Overcome dissatisfaction What's the use Unlived lives from unloved truths Blow a fuse Can't ignore all the abuse Anti-climax Things could change but no one tries that Feel side-tracked Pathway's dark yet most deny that cha. (x2) Laced up / Locked down Flower extracts call out Face up / Blocked now Power exacts fall out chb. so what... will... it... be now v2. Easy conflict Night terrors can't see beyond it Now beyond sick Perfect lives yet still don't want it Tropes are heart break Misdirections are a head fake Stale hard cake Swallow it despite the lead taste Rather shimmer But that must remain more inner Frozen dinner Watch as all the lights get dimmer
Rapid Eye 01:58
v1. dreams don't give satisfaction dreamt I chilled with brockhampton dreamt I once shared a stage with kanye west and lupe manga dreams, i had a few was tenchi, was a mew mew caught a mewtwo and a mew too but it's all dreams, so it's not true was told my goals were just nonsense had to use my com-mon sense tried to chill yet beyond tense all because of subconscious forget dreams like memories blending facts with reveries apparently that betters me more than chasing and getting free ch. (x2) i don't need that rapid eye mind is playing vapid lies rather have some daily gaps than artificial recaps v2. used to write my nocturnal put it into school journals never meant for alignment just did it for assignments do not care for refinement do not care what the signs meant heart hard with a carapace no playing self-therapist standing at broken bridges waiting to make decisions I don't call that a vision won't add it to my mission I'm just being honest sorry if it seems noxious I am just being cautious pretending that I forgot it
Outcomes 02:12
v1. this nostalgia's gonna bury him small door to the imaginarium recollection here to carry him innocent times like a cherry whim tired cause the memories won't go away cookie scented manga near a small cafe munchin' stale pocky, sippin' flat ramune weird flex but okay in the right cosplay metro manga tastes since day one but only in dreams knew how to play son never thought he'd ever find a Caroline didn't think he'd find a parallel line roll pair a dice and got paradise kissed but atelier days are still a life missed sewing machine dreams and flashbulbs burned down the candle to an ash nub ch. (x2) best of all the outcomes can leave you at the end still without one v2. second childhood lived so sweetly trying mild goods so neatly never getting lit, never getting high never being cold, getting over shy holding to stricter standards dreaming of weekends with lanyards tried to keep the anxiety at bay rather than let it loose to hold back and betray but the past is just the past ah it was what it was and he can't pretend that now he don't love writing perfect beats with the lyrics to match on a pocket computer making effortless tracks time to let it go, though first he says sorry thanks to his memories, mental konmari time to find a new path, and no longer be coy gotta lust for this life, and once again spark joy
Retiree 01:56
ch a. (x2) I'm out, Retiring from fandoms Too old to be random Long past lookin' handsome I'm out, Forgetting all these fictions Used to be addictions On to other missions v1. feeling too old for cons youth exited and gone tried to play ddr my legs didn't go far well they tried their best still copped d's & f's couldn't hit the right notes so I picked up my coat dealers room was up next dreamed of blowing a check but nothing there sparked joy guess I'm over those ploys even in den den town feel like I might drown cause I'm so out of phase guess I'm over those days v2. switch it up looked at the stores Americamura adores but the fashion underscored I'm heading out to the door never was that predisposed to look good in fashionable clothes cosplay drips also a bust so I must do what I must figurines long packed away blu-rays now never replayed manga that's never reread time to put that all to bed put it all up on ebay try to redeem what I paid but really I'll never let go I'll just keep it all on the low
v1. When it comes to cons, I no longer travel far Yet I chill with my otaku in Kyoto game bars Making friends that I only have for one night But it's an experience that stays past the flight Don't be tripping man; I'm still not sipping 'Cept on calpico and Coke, ice cold glass dripping Cosplay servers keep the clientele enthralled Figurines gold, kept behind glass walls Wife is on one side, waifu on the same side Yeah I keep it all together, cause it's true otaku life No time to mope about abstract pains Inflicted by the outside no I'm here to game Down to play werewolf, cards against humanity If that is too basic, then suggest candidly Table top to cabinets, consoles to mobege I'm just here to cut loose, all I wanna do is play ch. x2 Wouldn't know it from just one glance It's a party through we don't dance Everything coming down to chance Slice of heaven Game Bar Clantz v2. Don't get it wrong, hey I ain't talkin' bout shippin This is just another slice of that otaku livin Idol John Galt I'm the man that loves lives In an old capital where modern life thrives I already spent all day running in arcades Where bemani games sap my energy away But I'm not looking to return home soon So I'd rather stay out then see hotel rooms Down to make connections, get over my tensions Yeah I want the real over scrolling through my mentions Passion for competition breaks walls Once the laughter starts, smile never once falls Though it comes to close as we finish campaigns And I know that too soon I'll be back on a plane Then another then another and then back home again But in the moment I love it, yeah that never will change
ch. (x2) step inside the shadows of my heart see it through right through the dark it's just the beginning, it's a start it's a start v1. know it's beyond any reason truly the most savage season lack anything to believe in emotions taunting and teasin' panic attackin not breathin' innocence lost got me grievin' warmth ends up very decievin' everything seems so indecent try to lay everything bare then grievences ready for airin' but we're too easily scarin' not death defyin' or darin' but now it's for time declarin' every secret to be shared then makin' the opaque transparent organize all your affairs then... v2. feeling unsure of the future trying to be a seducer club only made up of losers really a joke with no humor only connect through computers cannot escape these accusers everyone circulates rumors snooper boomers in the boudoir all that they want are examples sacrifices for the bramble they do not care who they strangle they're just distressin' the damsels youth has them easily rankled because their now is a shambles they want us all disentangled but we're ready to be vandals


I was totally gonna overthink this record, then I realized there's no time like the present. I can always make another one.
