Track Name: FOOLISH [PROD. BY BKNAPP]
I'M BACK AND I BROUGHT SOME USELESS ART
I'M SO STUPID SMART, FINDING MY GROOVE IS HARD
I MIGHT BE TOO FAR GONE RIDING ON SHOOTING STAR
I'M LOOKING FOR THAT GIRL FROM SPACE
SHE CAME & LEFT & TOOK MY HEART WITH HER
LETS PAINT SOME DARK PICTURES
THE PLOT'S THICKER THAN BLOOD
THE PAGES RIPPED FROM OUR SCRIPTURES
I NUMB MY FACE WITH HARD LIQUOR CAUSE IT KNOCKS ME OUT QUICKER
KEEP MY EYES TINTED
COME FLY WITH ME
WE CAN LISTEN TO SOME TRIBE
R.I.P. TO PHIFE DIGGY DOG
CAN I KICK IT YALL?
EVEN IF I MISS AND FALL, I TRIED TO HIT THE BALL
AND SHE'S INTO THAT
EFFORT OR WHATEVER
AMBITION AND SOME OTHER STUFF I HAVEN'T HAD EVER
BUT WE ENDED UP GETTING ALONG FINE
SHE CAME MID-SUMMER, THEN SHE LEFT IN THE FALL
FELT LIKE A LONG TIME
CLASSIC CASE OF RIGHT PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME
AND THAT'S MY FAULT SO THE BLAME IS ALL MINE
AND I CAN ADMIT THAT
BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT I THINK THAT IT'S ALRIGHT

WE WEREN'T LOST, WE WERE TRAVELING CREATIVELY
ON BASICALLY THE ABSOLUTE WORTH PATH FROM A TO Z
BABY PLEASE!!
STAY WITH ME
MAYBE WE CAN TAKE A BREAK
A DAY? A WEEK? A COUPLE MONTHS?
HOWEVER MANY YEARS IT TAKES TO MAKE YOU SEE I'M CRAZY ABOUT YOU
SHE SAID "CLEARLY"
I LAUGHED AS IF I THINK THAT THAT'S ENDEARING
CAUSE I'M TRASH AT SHOWING FEELINGS
SHE LEFT IMMEDIATELY
I WATCHED HER FLY AWAY THROUGH THAT GAPING HOLE IN THE CEILING


DON'T MAKE A SOUND
LETS FIND A NICE ROOFTOP & STARE THE CONSTELLATIONS DOWN
UNTIL THE SKY'S VACANT FOR THE TAKING
WE CAN MAKE IT OURS
REARRANGE THE STARS
Track Name: LOVE [PROD. BY MAITRO]
DEEP UNDERWATER LAUGHING BUBBLES UP
LAUGH WITH ME WHILE I'M NUMB ENOUGH TO HAVE FUN WITH YOU
CONFUSION AND AQUATIC LOVE
USE ME TIL I'M ALL USED UP AND PUSH MY HEAD DOWN

CONDITIONS ARE CRITICAL
YOU'VE PULLED US APART WITH INDIFFERENCE
I'VE NOTICED YOUR LOVE COMES IN INTERVALS
WHAT'S WITH THE DISTANCE?
I MUST HAVE MISSED IT
WHAT DECISION WAS MADE?
WHEN SUDDENLY YOU WASN'T FEELING THE SAME
AND I'M FEELING ASHAMED THAT I CALLED YOU SIGNIFICANT WHEN YOU NEVER WANTED ME ANYWAY
I SUSPECT THAT YOU WANTED ATTENTION
AND I UNDERSTAND THAT PERSPECTIVE
I'VE BEEN THAT WAY
BUT I KNOW FOR SURE I REGRET PUTTING OTHERS AT STAKE AND THEN RUNNING AWAY
CAUSE IT GOT TO BE A BIT TOO MUCH TO TAKE
BUT IT'S OUT OF CONTROL CAUSE YOU LET IT
I HOPE THAT YOU'LL GET IT TOGETHER
YOU KNOW WHY YOU DID IT
YOU'RE SELFISH
YOU KNOW IT
YOU JUST CAN'T HELP IT

AND I GET THAT
BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT I HAVE TO FORGIVE THAT
I WON'T BE YOUR FIVE MINUTE BREAK FOR A SMOKE AND I WON'T BE RE-LIT WHEN YOU GET BACK NO MORE CAUSE I'M BORED OF THAT ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN
ALL OF THAT
EITHER YOU CARE OR YOU DON'T
IF YOU WANNA CONFUSE ME THEN YOU CAN GET LOST WITH THAT
F L C L
YOU KNOW WHAT IT STANDS FOR
FORCED LOVE CAUSES LUST
CAUSE LOVE'S NOT AN INTIMATE NIGHT AND HUNCH
IT'S MORE LIKE A KNIFE IN YOUR GUTS
AND YOU TASTE BLOOD
LIKE SNORTING LINES OF SPACE DUST
IT'S MADE UP

I'LL HAVE THEM VIOLINS PLAYIN FOR YOU GIRL
YES! THEY'RE PLAYING FOR YOU!
MELANCHOLY MELODIES, JUST THE WAY YOU'RE USED TO
SAD GIRL, I WISH I COULD GET THROUGH TO YOU
WITH MY STUPID CONFUSING UNDERWATER MUSICALS
Track Name: CONVERSATIONS [PROD. BY PHILOS]
I GOT TOO HIGH PROBABLY
I LIE FLAT ON THE FLOOR SO WE CAN SEE EYE TO EYE AND SPEAK PROPERLY, MY CONFIDANT AND MY SOLACE IN MY TIME OF NEED
HE'S WIDE ASLEEP, YAWNING AS I SHAKE HIM AWAKE HE LOOKS ME IN THE EYE AND HE SAYS NOTHING
I'M DESPERATE
I TRY TO EXPRESS THIS AND I END UP ASKING HIM QUESTIONS
I SAY "HEY, WHAT GOES AROUND THE WORLD BUT STAYS IN THE CORNER?" AND I LAUGH
HE LOOKS AWAY AND OPENS HIS MOUTH BUT SAYS NOTHING
I CONTINUE
I EXPLAIN THAT IT'S A RIDDLE AND THAT THE ANSWER IS A STAMP
HE HAS NO REACTION
SO I CONTINUE
I EXPLAIN RIDDLES WITH JOKES AND JOKES WITH LAUGHTER
I MAKE UP NEW RIDDLES BUT I NEGLECT MAKING UP ANY ANSWERS
I TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED
HE LOOKS INTERESTED
BUT I KNOW THAT HE ISN'T
WHETHER I'M HAPPY OR SAD HE DOESN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
HE CAN'T TELL WHEN I SHOW THE SYMPTOMS OF MY INTERNAL SOLAR SYSTEMS YET HE SEES THROUGH THE SMOKE AND THE MIRRORS

HOPE AND FEAR ARE THE SAME EMOTION EXPRESSED IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND I STILL GO INTO SITUATIONS HOPING TO BE FEARLESS?

HE SAYS NOTHING
I CONTINUE
I SAY "YOU'RE LIKE ME, I GET YOU! YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING!"
SO HE SAYS NOTHING
I CONTINUE
I STUMBLE OVER SENTENCES NERVOUSLY EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THAT THERE'S NO REASON FOR ME TO DO IT ENDLESSLY I POP UP TO MY KNEES LOOKING DOWN TAPPING OUT RHYTHMS WITH MY FINGERS AGAINST MY THUMB BECAUSE I FEEL RESTLESS
I TELL HIM I WANNA END IT
I SAY THAT I'M SICK OF TRAVELING BETWEEN ROOMS TALKING TO STATUES THAT NEVER TALK BACK TO ME
MOVE AGAIN OR LOSE MY HEAD
I NEED TO INVESTIGATE WHO I AM

HE SAYS NOTHING
BUT I EXPECTED THAT
HE YAWNS AS HE STANDS AND HE WALKS PAST ME TO EAT
HE STOPS AND HE LOOKS BACK AT ME
HE LICKS HIS PAWS



WE FADE BACK FROM THE EDGE OF THE MAIN MAP
I'M DREAMING I WOKE UP FROM A GREAT NAP, BUT
REALLY I WOKE UP IN THE BASEMENT
THE CONCRETE NUMBED MY FACE
I'M WIDE AWAKE, SMOKING ON THE PORCH IN SEVEN MINUTES
PHONE LIGHTS UP LIKE A TORCH WITH SEVEN DIGITS
THE TYPE THAT YOU DON'T SAVE
AS IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE NAME ATTACHED
SHE ASKED IF I'D BE IN TOWN IN A COUPLE OF DAYS
I SAID I BEEN BACK FOR A MONTH, BUT OKAY, YEA
SHE SAID "SORRY,
YOU KNOW THE WAY THAT I AM"
I SAY "YEA"
SHE SAID "YOU ALREADY MADE PLANS?"
I TOLD HER "NAH,
I'M HERE FOR NO REASON LIKE BILL MURRAY IN SPACE JAM
PLAYING FOR THE TOON SQUAD TO SAVE THE PLANET, SO
YEA"
SHE SAID LOL AND ASKED ME WHY I'M PLAYIN
I SAID "DO YOU REMEMBER WHO YOU'RE TEXTING? DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? WERE YOU TOO DRUNK TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE J AND THE REST OF THOSE OTHER STUPID LETTERS NEAR IT? AIN'T YOU MEAN TO TEXT YOUR MAIN MAN?"
SHE AIN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO THAT
SO SHE SAYS "HAHA"
SENDS A PICTURE OF HER BEST FACE THAT'S SAD
CAPTIONED IT "I MISS YOU" AND I LAUGHED
SENT A PICTURE OF THE NIGHT SKY BACK TO HER LIKE "HEY, WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT?"
SHE SAID "LOOK AT WHAT?"
I TOLD HER "COUNT THE STARS"
SHE SAID "THERE'S LIKE A HUNDRED OF EM SO THAT'S KINDA HARD
I SAID THERE'S ONE FOR EVERY TIME I'VE HEARD YOUR LINES BEFORE
AND I DON'T MIND AFFECTION BUT MY QUESTIONS WHAT YOU LYIN FOR?
SHE SENT ??? BACK
I SIGHED AND RESIGNED BACK TO MY REGULAR PATH, LIKE
NEVERMIND
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
SHE SAID "NOTHING, YOU WANNA HANG?"
I JUST SAID "YEA"
Track Name: LOST [PROD. BY GURU GRIFF]
LETS TAKE IT BACK TO WHAT WE STARTED FOR
WHEN RAP WAS MY ATTEMPT TO BREACH YOUR HEART & SOUL
LANGUAGE WAS INVENTED AS A TOOL FOR WOOING WOMEN AND I'M CRUISING OUTERSPACE FOR A LADY WITH A BASS LIKE HARUKO
AND I DON'T CARE HOW FAR WE GO
WAIT
BUT THIS ISN'T OUTER SPACE, IT'S A CARNIVAL
THAT"S NOT A CONSTELLATION
IT'S A FERRIS WHEEL THAT HARDLY GOES
THE ROAD'S NOT A RAINBOW
THERE'S NO GO-KARTING MARIOS PEELING OFF BUT THERE'S A PARTY SO
CELEBRATE FOR NO REASON YALL
WE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO GO AND WE'RE STILL FEELIN LOST
HIDE IN MY EMOTIONS TIL I'M REALLY GONE
KILL ME OFF
ONLY 4 MORE EPISODES TO DO IT ALL
AND MOVE ALONG
I NEVER PROMISED TO DO IT LONG
IT JUST ENDS WHEN IT ENDS LIKE A GURU SONG
I ONLY SAID WHAT I SAID BECAUSE I'M FOOLISH
BUT I'M COOL, AND EXCLUSIVELY TELL THE TRUTH
SO YOU WON'T PROVE ME WRONG

HOW'D WE GET SO LOST? WE RUINED IT ALL, GIRL
FOR WHAT? FOR NOTHING, THIS IS AWFUL
IT'S ALL WRONG
AND I'VE FELT SO LOST SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE
I FEEL FOOLISH WHEN THAT BASS GUITAR HUMS
KEEP MY GUARD UP

I'M LAYING IN BED BUT I'M NOT SLEEPING
I'M CRAVING AFFECTION BUT NOT REALLY
I'M NON-FEELING
I'VE GOT REASONS
I'VE GOT DEMONS
I SEEK ANGELS
WEIRD DOWN TO EARTH GIRL LIKE MAMIMI
I GUESS I'M INTO THAT
LET ME SWING THE BAT
LET ME PUT SOME DISTANCE BETWEEN US
ALRIGHT, BRING IT BACK
THE HATCHES ARE OPEN, BABY
GET INSIDE
HITCH A RIDE
TAKE A SPACE TRIP WITH YOUR GUY TO A DIFFERENT SIDE
I'M THE CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP, SEE MY OFFICIAL TIE? HAT & EYEPATCH, NO MISSING EYE?
LISTEN, I KNOW IT'S AN INTIMIDATING MISSION BUT I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A MINUTE, I'M STILL ALIVE
IT'S APPARENTLY FINE
ONCE YOU LEARN TO SURVIVE OFF-MAP
ON AN INFINITE LOOP BACK TO THE FIRST LINE
WHAT WE STARTED FOR
THE HEART & SOUL
THE ENDLESS SEARCH FOR HARUKOS
FOOLISH LOVING CONVERSATIONS
LETHARGIC POEMS
