Aesop Rock 1,000 Deaths Lyrics:
[Verse 1:]
I saw the wrought-iron cross inverted circlin above my turret
Slid the spiraling banister down and hide, banished am I,
My ruby glass glazed specs staple the trader market thieves
Where vendors count the stolen citrus out they pyramids
Mirrored with that a slapstick maverick's plugged directly to 3rd rail surges
Pissin' electric mayhem through city commuter circuits
Oooh child, raises oddity, son of a circus side show freak
Pertinent to the slide show, the wino's leak but I won't speak
Infected projection hung thick in the air
Pungent as burning plastics upon whiffing the nasal cringes
Pucker another 60-second lapse while 60 stars collapse to suckers
And I´m reborn every time the wine metamorphs back to water, my god
Sweet Christ crucify me with railroad spikes
Use my skull to bash them all in, gather sit and grin, weave awe
All fail the most serene communications pageant
Where sitting with a stranger and living awards the badges
I spell merit with my name stitched on my heritage
And serenade arrogant simpletons to feed my cherished grin
Buried in leagues of please, thank you, pardon, excuse me
Your welcome, may I? ohh, I´d like to nod but no you may not
Let's take a deep breath, naw let's take a breath
Naw let's take, naw let's aaah shit, well I guess that about says it
Maybe I´ll craft the sycamore canoe and paddle upstream
Where the luck seems to reflect precious healthy interventions

[Chorus:]
I have died a thousand deaths, and I apologize for you and yours
For kicking your fantasies overboard
I mean I´m only one servant, ayo one hell of a diversion
And if the masses have agreed to split the sea then let it bleed

I have died a thousand deaths, and I apologize for them and theirs
For breaking down their ropes, ladders and stairs
I mean I´m only one servant, ayo one hell of a diversion
And if the masses have agreed to split the sea then let it bleed

[Verse 2:]
You ever died a thousand deaths? I have
And in the morrow stood a thousand steps from where my nervous laughter
Made a boat at, nomad, I roam in a social coma
Jones'in for home alone days to sit and count my poems, I
Dig in the dirt, I bring up the earth like pulley systems
Thereby painting the perfect metaphor for hung juries
Strung along a song of spawning thorns of fury
Numb the anti-IDE alarm before he recognized this worries me
Carpet-bombers spearheading fink operetta
Walk my line, now what? Now strut that little poison combine
Y'all call natural, in honesty promise me twenty thousand salami links
And dive and finding my thriving ivy leaves climbing up the pit fall
Lack of most lords aboard, heroes unsung heroes unbrung rewards
Yo if I flutter in a trouble clutch then I dance fancy forward
Like park children double-dutching ropes in burning city summers
My wing span can and will employ full expansion
Unfolding while lamping at home with my hands panning for gold
Told them the roof was on fire, when that structure burned to ashes
All y'all saw was Aesop Rock holding an empty book of matches
Maybe I´ll sit until the spilling motors clear
Maybe I´ll sit and stroke my billie goat beard
And rethink the time angels appeared, maybe I won't
Bundled in my humble little plummet
Numb enough to die those thousand deaths under the sun it makes me sick

[Chorus:]
I have died a thousand deaths, and I apologize for you and yours
For kicking your fantasies overboard
I mean I´m only one servant, ayo one hell of a diversion
And if the masses have agreed to split the sea then let it bleed

I have died a thousand deaths, and I apologize for them and theirs
For breaking down their ropes, ladders and stairs
I mean I´m only one servant, ayo one hell of a diversion
And if the masses have agreed to split the sea then let it bleed

I have died a thousand deaths, and I apologize for you and yours
For kicking your fantasies overboard
I mean I´m only one servant, ayo one hell of a diversion
And if the masses have agreed to split the sea then let it bleed

I have died a thousand deaths, and I apologize for them and theirs
For breaking down their ropes, ladders and stairs
I mean I´m only one servant, ayo one hell of a diversion
And if the masses have agreed to split the sea then let it bleed
Lyrics: 1,000 Deaths, Aesop Rock [end]

thousand deaths | Reviewer: taylor | 7/3/2007

it's hard to get to the core of what he's trying to say, but i'm pretty sure the premise of the song is "religion is kinda lame"
