Every dude is confused by the line he gotta walk but your legs don’t pretend and your feet can just do your talkin Put one foot in front of the other now And don’t worry about where your feet go The world is curved impressively Every road leads to home If you’re me then you’ve seen your share of road closed signs You can sit, you can spit, call it shit, but just don’t give it all your time Step one foot in front of the other now Doesn’t matter if you’re walking straight Cuz time stretches on to infinity You can never be late Take one step in front of the other now Even if your pace slows to a crawl cuz the world is scaled impossibly you could never see it all I put one note after another now And when all the chords start to change There are trillions of songs in the universe I just pick one and play
Intro 02:31
Welcome specimens we got the regiment for you check the ingredient list tonight slick bass kick drum synth top hi hat keytar dem beats bustin up the floor yo forget about the toms dance don't walk don't run, to the front of the stage or other place that you can listen to us real loud swirl the groove, taste the mood but just spit out the rest you can come to your conclusions if you ask us we'll say no we're not the bar band we're not here to sell you beer or get you laid no we're not your friend, man strictly business happens up here on this stage huff huff i can't keep up with the insta tumblas, all a twitter pushing their shit sell it out but don't sell yourself out but either way you're buyin it all put your money on the floor run that game and live that hype i'm ultra sure you'll definitely make it sittin pretty big in the city your pants are tight and we're infinitely jelly but we just can't go for that we're not the hip shit we don't have that million dollar publicist no let's not be cryptic if you hear a sound we are the ones playing it no we're not the cool thing tens and tens of fb hits no we're not here tributing we're just here to get our fix of killing it
Sugar 04:41
Each morning is the same: you say “give me something that I like.” And no food could please the beast in you Like sugar Like sugar do It’s not about the taste It’s my instinct kicking in Cuz history is fate and a king better feed his citizens Most food could use something Each lacks the nitro booster shot And no drug, would give as reliable a push As sugar As sugar could Keep going now Work harder now with sugar Juice is running out I want Juice is running out I need sugar Looking for sugar now Searching for sugar now Tell everyone we’ve found the part of town where they keep sugar Inspecting sugar now Purchasing sugar now I can’t explain how much I Love sugar, and sugar loves me Tasting the sugar now Focus on sugar now All systems shutting down to let your mouth be with the sugar Your life is sugar now Bow down to sugar now All hail the crown and call him sugar
This 02:58
I don the hard hat i handle pick axe I'm siftin this that I could go for years and years i can keep the ink in here without mark calendar down I could kick the ball around i could go without a sound without a goal well this may not be the place (that's your fate) every indicator could be facing wrong (at this rate) so the monologue goes but if i was to look around (careful now) trace the tracks the ground displays (you've just found) i could still stumble on gold
feelin overbeared not a soul that can prepare you for your death i'm always sorta scared always minimally aware of my loose ends silently speaking "is this all I was born for" finding the balls to call it loving the ground when falling all of the trees know that you won't be happy til you die a little til you die a little you already know when i calm it down i still remember how you found me just a youth so undeclared if i could change the past i'd turn the clock back just to tell him "cool your jets, you don't have to hurt her. find your death, lay in her arms" and sleep sell all of your belongings hear your heart and nothing else even if you don't know it you will be happy once you die a little once you die a little you already know feeling overwhelmed strong enough i had to tell you
