Aesop Rock No Splash Lyrics

Last updated: 07/19/2009 12:00:00 PM

[Aesop Rock]
In January, I fell to the cobblestone
In April, I cut little paper flowers
In August, I drank cold tea on my lonesome
In October, I was introduced to scour
I love New York Saturdays
But Mondays last longer
And since I plan to live a long life
Maybe I'll surf a thousand Mondays and swallow the burn
To milk the week for all its got
To get my shoddy rotten ribs, thick, forgot my ribs
I got a lil' something called a spirit crisis on my skull
And it's nothing short of ferocious but I swallowed the dosage
I got a mantle, and the mantle is a candle
And on the candle is a flame that burns to symbolize the day Gretel met Hansel
Then I settle in a stand still
I live forever reaching for the sun
Hoping some lucky day I'll clutch and get a hand full
Rope ladder, I'm a swinging anvil
And I wanna turn skullies and tummies with pretty lullabye, bye
The way my gypsy dances makes a monster retreat to fetal
I never felt so damn young
But you don't look a day over zero
And you don't look a day in its eyes 'cause it'll make you realize
The night is near so
In a cold dream, I clean around the edges
I tidy up the tabletop, and lectured all the pledges
I never really knew the true definition of precious
Till my angel with the beautiful red locks gave me the message
I'm a fully animated life tree
See the root of the mute but it was dug up, bug up on a song
Of I'm a fully animated life tree
With branches for the heavens to admire naturally

Chorus [Woman speaking]
Dream, war, love, honor, crime, innocence, tragedy, sunshine
Friendship, death, passion, heroism, God, suffering, joy, fate
Destiny, treasure, stars, skull, hunger, murder, silence, mayhem
Health, pain, space, breath, sound, guilt, pride, time

[Aesop Rock]
We all know what a halo is
But we all don't know the horrors if your halo tips
I be the matador making your pretty little heels click
I be the Sword in the Stone of the contemporary eclipse
I'm incredibly exhausted
You can't imagine, got my warm spirit stuck in my teeth, I'm obsolete
Freedom freedom freedom fighter brigading
For the sake of better demeanor and such to bust fuckin' fantastic
Every little steps she take breaks the chambers
In the chest, enveloped in the abominable trouble
Subtle for a cruel second, loud for an hour
Screamin' to the beats to leave until my whole weekend turns sour
I ain't been around the world but I been around the block
I ain't seen everything but I seen enough to talk
I ain't a prophet, I ain't the Second Coming of Christ
I'm just a mason with a will to build and a little advice
I wanna weave a web, I bought a set of knitting needles
Fiddling with a theme dream silent
Paddle in the hole to the bottom to where the portraits astonish
You won't regret a single solitary step, I promise
Look, in a situation where a dragon guards the gate
I make a true spur of the moment grown decision
Which in turn allows me to be something normal
With the prefix of the 'ab'
And I can kill every monster if I gotta, that's that
Rockin it, rockin it, clippership rockin it
Be the little guinea pig, dig?
I'm tryin' to make an exit with no ripples in the water
No splash, let the poison slide down down the hatch
It's like that

Chorus 2x
