Coffee Lyrics - Aesop Rock

Review The Song (7)

Aesop Rock:
We don't need no walkie-talkies, nope no walkie talkies,
We don't need your coughing when offing the morning coffee,
No, we don't need no walkie-talkies, nope no walkie-talkies
We just want our hermitry to stay and our coffee to go

And the last shall be,
First to immerse in the pass out heat,
Face in the mud where the moxie melt
'Till he woke up drowning in chachkes hell,
More in a cave with a torch on the wall
Than a window arrangement of porcelain dolls
On a brand new day, saw what he saw,
Property owners who crawl to the mall,
With a bad toupee and a face like he author the law,
Pace like he mourning a loss,
Right hand on a can of worms,
Left full of gold he will trade for turf, i mean
Thats o.k., you got to answer to you at the end of the volatile day,
But a model of mercy and might? no way,
Marionette who will clap and obey,
Dude, look, all that noise?
Call that flight of the water boys,
Meet and greet and they all slap five,
Cheek to cheek when they colonize,
And a grown ass man shall abide as he wish,
Walk that path with a dime and a stick,
Walk that path with a diamond and wine,
Walk that path to the firing line,
Just walk, pay no mind
To the new recruit with the play-doh spine,
Let's be friends from opposite ends,
Wave to the kid don't hop on the fence,
Play to the radius far and away,
Orbit wide don't park in his space,
One little martyr who talk in his face
Make one little weathermen sharpen the blades.


And the last shall be,
First to the curb with the mad cow meat,
Face in the bars of a regular cell
When he woke up high in collectible hell,
Boom town kid who was taught by the binge
That a man who expire with the most shit win,
That's warpy american nonsense penned by the rich,
Not a routine friend in a pinch,
Still not used to the *stature,
That grows* off otherwise lucid events,
In the case the afraid observe
I got a pro-keds box full of layman's terms, it goes
Hey, peace, pray for the plagued,
Major relief and capacious rains,
But just cuz i don't want to war with you,
It don't mean go warm up the barbecue,
I'm like pardon you, sawed off limit,
My high noon is a quick little minute,
I don't wanna spend it sitting with a critic,
Who simply isn't going to ever really get it,
This HQ is alive and alone,
No driveway no sign of a home,
No dial tone, no line for the phone,
No world's tiniest violin song,
And i might just lie to them all, lie in the morgue
With a deep breath hiding and bored,
Fighting a smile, highly annoyed,
When the timing is right i will rise and record,
Call for the monster beats and blockhead got
Animal drums like he's doctor teeth,
It goes red light green light 1 2 3,
One large coffee, fuck you, peace.


John Darnielle:
I crawled down to the basement
When the weather got cold,
Like a lost lamb returning to the fold,
And when the outside world recedes from view,
It's just a year's supply of make-up
And memories of you,
1967 colt 45, holding back the vampires,
Keeping me alive,
There's an envelope with some cash in it
Out by the front door,
This is what they make you take the medication for

not political | Reviewer: Jason Reeves | 3/18/13

I don't think this is political at all, but about the crushing self-induced conformity and self righteousness of Middle America suburbia. That the description of the neighbor (neighbor being implied by the reference to the fence and the barbecue) is most likely a conservative is probably correct, but a secondary topic at best. the main theme I get from this is that of self-denied potential: of the tendency for peopel to choose what they see as a safe, normal lifestyle even though they end up being crushed by it and their own wealth, and the narrator's rejection of the bourgoisie.

the culture | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/6/10

Everyone keeps referring to bush like a president has all the the say and isn't just a scape goat for the media, like a 1950's kid wanting to be in the secret service as if the president is the most important man in the country, his mind needs to be protected lol. bilderberg global elite one world government they consider bush as expandable as say.. hussein hahahahahaha

THE sickest song EVER. if this song is somewhat tongue in cheek judgmental, 'none shall pass' is on the same theme, but more somber. both songs are crazy, but I get down with "coffee," when, not surprisingly, I have to go to work, FML, and I need coffee.

my thoughts | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/24/10

i believe aesops part is about iraq and american arrogance. most specifically bush's dumbass. to me John Darnielle's part is refering to a woman who was widowed during vietnam and is dealing with flashbacks or ptsd. at least thats what i get from it. This is the sickest song ever

anwers | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/24/09

a great song, but not so much about corporations, at least not completely. it's about the republican party in general. the whole first verse is about the war in iraq. you have to remember when aes wrote this song, bush was still fucking everything up.

I'm with you there AR fan | Reviewer: L.I.B | 10/22/08

This guy is so so sick, first time I heard about him, it was from my friend and he only told me about his lyricism, he forgot to mention that the guy has one of the sickest flos around. And to answer your q, I'm not too sure myself yet, but I think it's about corporate dudes. You know, suits and that kinda thing, money chasers. This is real hip hop

Wow | Reviewer: AR Fan | 9/20/08

Aesop Rock is brilliant from the way I see it. I mean, I listen to this song and I can hear some of it but understand very little of it without the lyrics in front of me. Even with them in front of me some of this seems to be over my head. All of the art he does amazes me (emceeing producing drawing etc

Someone explain this song to me
