INTRO VINYL SAMPLE:

Christy Essien Igbokwe


 

HOOK 1

This world’s getting crazy

(Crazy)

We stopped

Evolving for sure

(Yup)

The earth will

Keep on rotating

(Ugh)

And hate has a

Revolving door

(Yeah)

Fixing it

Means just debating

(Ugh)

Get sick and

Argue the cure

(Yup)

Maybe it’s

Just human nature

To be saboteurs

When we’re bored

(Yeah, yeah)


VERSE 1

So I won’t go

And bury this hatchet

All the eggs

In this one basket,

Always counting ‘fore

I hatch shit

Chase the dragon but I

Won’t catch it

If I left there wouldn’t be no pageant

Wouldn’t miss America, ex-pat it

No next gadget, start up patent

Ads get smart, it’s target practice

Our demographics and passive habits

Wipe your tech with this massive magnet

Can’t give a heck if I get the blue check

If it’s a check I expect to cash it

You’re lookin’ like a backpack

You stay strapped, but stay back

Stay back from any and all flak

Cause I’m the exact

Opposite of that

Find me on the front lines

Of the attack I’m an

Old hat, a no-fold SnapBack

‘Cause instead I go on ahead

Run that back, ‘cause I said

I go on a head

Lives I act like I got nine

You stay scared and act like a feline

Sirens blare and you make a beeline

Cappin’ to the hat, you be lyin


HOOK 2

This world’s getting crazy

(Crazy)

We stopped

Evolving for sure

(Yup)

The earth will

Keep on rotating

(Ugh)

And hate has a

Revolving door

(Yeah)

Fixing it

Means just debating

(Ugh)

Get sick and

Argue the cure

(Yup)

Maybe it’s

Just human nature

To be saboteurs

When we’re bored

(Yeah, yeah)


VERSE 2

They say I’m a wordsmith

(Yeah)

And they don’t want it no more

(Nope)

So I act like a blacksmith

(Yup)

And make a bolt for the door

(Get it?) (Naw)

Ghastly but numb, smell like a bum

Nasty no wonder, into gutters I plunge

What did I stutter, how dare-he like butter

You utter like right out the udder, I’m done

All outta change

So I’m donating plasma

With fog in my brain

Using Flonase for asthma

It’s my lucky day

Should I go play a scratcher

I’m crunching them numbers

It’s launch day at NASA

I opened the cabinet

And it’s like a chasm

Feel nothing but hunger

Get Rolaids for acid

I skip over chapters

Like movies on TV

Life’s full of bad actors

With no greener pastures

(UGH!)


I’m an OG old fogey low key

That ho shot me down like a bogey

She keeps blocking my shot like a goalie

I keep running it back like a foley

You’ll wreck a record

From scratching it overly

If it gets

Overturned like Roe-V

Eyes closing, my mind’s quoting

(Yep, everything’s gonna be all right)


I got a whole melon crammed

With tour plans

Random facts

Lorazepam

And loads of browser spam

Outta hand

It’s a catastrophe

I blast my own blaspheme

Laugh at audacity, an

Addict with tenacity

Chapters of rhapsody

I been the industry stencil

Just ill with the pencil

Anyone willing to listen I tell

Well when this hits a million

I’m an innocent villain

Resistant to Methicillin

I’m inefficient

When you insist I

Be omniscient

To a feeling


Just speaking honestly


Scholarly, I got my college degree

From the Dollar Tree

Offering no official apology

Follow me, I’m a mental menagerie

Of pharmacology, Obviously

I’m still unfazed by inane little

Word vomiting Pomeranians

Trying to comprehend this

Doberman alien

You sprain your brain stems

Twist a ganglion

And can’t untangle them

And it’s breaking my cranium

How corporate the games gotten

Hip-Hop, I hold the torch tall and

Find your graves, use the flame to

Scorch my name on ‘em

How far shit’s fallen

It’s pretty far from Compton

We’re scraping at the bottom

And the moral of it all

That can never be forgotten

It isn’t visiting Italy

Sitting in the Olive Garden


Quit sabotaging!

(You know, cuz)


HOOK 3

This world’s getting crazy

(Crazy)

We stopped

Evolving for sure

(Yup)

The earth will

Keep on rotating

(Ugh)

And hate has a

Revolving door

(Yeah)

Fixing it

Means just debating

(Ugh)

Get sick and

Argue the cure

(Yup)

Maybe it’s

Just human nature

To be saboteurs

When we’re bored

(Yeah, yeah)
