Holy Smokes Lyrics - Aesop Rock

Review The Song (1)



voice over: give him one of these pills if he has any pain
a parable; what is it? well it's a little story with a lot of truth in it, an earthly story with a heavenly meaning, Jesus told many parables to grown ups and children alike, he told them simply and sincerely
in words every one could understand, so that all might learn the lesson he was trying to teach

well they were selfish with their helmets on the little bus
to break fluid sewage crippled up the get retarded nickel punks
slowly copas wore as lowly robot role evoke would one day rise in sections to interrogate the holy ghost (i knew it)

holy smokes father black suit white collar
kiddie porn dungeon guns and 3 fingers for your daughters
caught belly up antique Nazi paraphernalia
cannot pay your bills with holy water and hail Mary luck

shucks fucker enjoy the alcatraz shower fun
and mommy's madam cliche generation X agnostic front
it ate the nifty fate the ninteen fifty eight
before the new new testament approved alter boy fistic rape

and take me to your leader long as he don't manipulate toddler fever
call me crazy but i bet that wasn't gods demeanor
sodameter peaking and (me too) on long island was Jesus and every weekend spoon fed to appease a traditional lover burning of a middle Pennsylvenia shit hole where elders movements stressed a stellar therapeutic bible cycle
one church with the bait and tackle stored next door and not much more, so the two moved to New York made babies raised on what they'd saw

christmas morning smelled fresher than angel pussy
but immaculate conception came second to playful goodies
like laser tag was way more spiritual than blood and body wafer bags
and manger statues as long as Santa ate the cookies

when i was a saint I'll eat paint with snakes and bullies
said if only you memorized your prayers like you did your cool G's
see by the time i was old enough to know what religion was
i was catholicism numb and truly didnt give a FUCK

94' moved out the crib and ain't seen a steeple since
what knievell evil seeks in christian leaders pitch
to priests who lap slap with parental advisory warnings
ill be auditioning gods in my office on Monday morning

uh oh and yet another pill slip down the hatch and back up through the kill switch
I need a couple A's for Q's I'm not an asshole I'm just a little confused

voice over:
this story reminds us of the one Jesus told about people who were kind and helpful to others
he said that one day the king would say to his people, come, inherit the kingdom prepared for you, for when I was hungry you gave me food, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me
but the people asked, lord when did we see you hungry and feed you, or sick or in prison
and come to you and the king answered, in as much as you have done it unto the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me

Yeah
just a little bruise in the back of the pews
actin amused with a mask on them Vatican blues
for in the eyes of the organization I was raised in
Aes is just another sinning brick in hells basement
cubical adjacent to the killers and rapists for what?
drugs and fuck it it's part of growin up
like cups of a dumb shit's better than the schools
I'm not an asshole I'm just a little confused

just a lit 'fused in the back of the pews
watching a thousand flavors of the same god feud
I'd figure ultimate peace is the common theme
so it's a no brainer peace when the blood hit the screen
I got a basic good and evil sensibility born
good neighbor know a halo woulda been over horns
more science than faith the more karma than bread and booze
I'm not an asshole I'm just a little confused
not an asshole I'm just a little confused
not an asshole I'm just a little confused
not an asshole I'm just a little confused
you know what Aesop, to be completely honest, you're a fucking asshole
