We’re so excited we don’t know what to do because we’re about to re-enter the level above human I couldn’t have had a better life than I’ve had these 21 years, and if it was good here. I know its gonna be twice as good when we get up there This isn’t a troubling circumstance don’t take it as that. Its just a gateway. Just a doorway. What we’re doing is we’re going home We’re going home to those individuals who sent us here to do this task and this is the happiest, and joyous thing that you can- Alright Raised on dirty hot dog water and popcorn butter EPMD tellin’ me every pop star a sucker Don’t let him smell the pot stickers, He’ll stick around for supper He’ll stick around for cheesecake, then three days, then the summer Where spiders eat their mothers Where rodents eat their young I’m not here to make sense where there is none, That’s dumb. My attitude is ghastly any gallantry been going gone, I think I’m probably a lot like dating Mola Ram, I should work on that. The geezer not a leader I’m a loner Lover, believer, upholder of the under Just not a people person, please forgive me if I’m flustered I’ll save a thousand whales before your grits are even buttered My name is Aesop Rock, I’ve been a mess for my entire life All I know is fight or flight, what the fuck’s a silent night? Who the fuck are you to tell me who the fuck you even are This is more than band-aids over itsy bitsy bleeding hearts This is GNR announcing Jesus Christ on lead guitar finding Heather Hunter still inside your college VCR Mirror Mirror on the wall, I feel like a fucking dog Something this depraved is not a product of a loving God Perrywinkle Pegasus through rat-infested LEGO bricks Hug his mother briefly then we’re off to see the exorcist I will not be checking message Why, should I be? Special is as special does, you aren’t special just because Yes, your mother said you was that’s pretty much what mothers does Someday I might find the pluck to roam the earth with zero strings Cut the tether float this feather over eastern seaboard winds forever Like sea-born kings invested in the froth and fog They’ll talk of his adventuring and call him things like salty dog He freed like a bajillion prisoners from some secret haunted vault always had an L to puff, never yelled “Get off my lawn!” Full disclosure I don’t even have a lawn If I did I’d probably grow the grass until the house was gone Kick it till the town forget the address or the house at all This is how performance art exacerbates an albatross I should maybe shake some hands, I should turn the music down, have some people over without askin them to move a couch, but since you’re here I’ve got this awful futon I could do without Should take like two seconds.

    It’s amazing how mainstream hip hop is mainstream to begin with and excepted and appealing and artist like Aesop are underground and misunderstood by the masses, I can’t wrap my head around how ass backwards it is.

    Holy shit, I just learned, on pure coincidence, the opening dialogue "we're so excited…." is an audio clip of the leader of Heavens Gate. I've listened to this song ad nauseum. AR what's your underlying message and theme here? Elevation? Gotta study this one more now
