lyrics

You know I've seen some that flaunt it
and I've seen some that act like they don't want it
I've seen a couple more waiting by the sidelines
and a couple more trying to hard to fake shine
I know I've seen this before
Somebody take a chance
Oh yeah
It was at that junior high dance
Valentine's Day and we were just getting old enough
We had the urge so bad it was exploding us
No one was bold enough to go up to the girls' side
and grab a partner for the slow dance
Until I tried
After that I was addicted
Now I always do it
I broke the spell
What the hell there was nothing to it
Sometimes it's easy to win
But sometimes I feel
Like I haven't even begun to climb a hill
Watching cancer turn my Dad into a skeleton
Running pounds and sometimes going to jail again
In debt below the poverty line I feel fine
Because I know I'm living it all in real time
and that's got nothing to do with a clock, killer
Actually it pertains to how I rock iller
My light's too bright
I'm ahead of my time
Moved up from washing dishes
Now I'm cooking on the line
Just another humble artisan
Smarter than the average bear
Got you shooken on my shine

Everybody wants to be a Guitar Hero
Everybody wants to be a Rap Star
Don't lie
I know you wanna be one too

You ask me I say of course you should sing
Don't be ashamed
It's a natural thing
We've all seen what happens when you suppress your urges
End up perverted like them priests in Catholic churches
Don't let anybody ever tell you that you can't
Find the balance between self-promo and psychophant
It takes all personalities to make humanity
Even idiots like Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity
Of course you know Stewart and Colbert
Got my vote if they ever decide to go there
Serious I wish they would
Because this is getting old
Recession time
We got a chance to break the corporate hold
Make sure they know we gonna do just what we wanna
Fight for your right
Attitude Americana
Keep growing the ghanja
Exposing imposters
They can't put it on you
Here's mine if you lost yours
Respect in the mosh pit
Help your brother up when he falls
Because it's a Slayer show, bro
and that takes balls
I thank y'all for your support
During this beautiful crisis I call my life
Because I know that

Everybody wants to be a Guitar Hero
Everybody want to be a Rap Star
Don't lie
I know you wanna be one too

about

Coolzey Los Angeles, California

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more
