about

A tune about the pleasures of living amongst nature.

Track #3 from Coolzey and the Search for the Hip Hop Hearts Vol. 2: I'm the DJ, They're the Rapper

lyrics

When the sun comes up

I slither out of my bag

i'll climb up a tree till i'm covered in sap

and i'll hang upside down like a bat

cuz i don't wanna live in your plastic habitat

and when the moon comes up

and the sky goes black

I'll say goodnight to the muskrats,

turtles and ants

and lay my head down on the grass

cuz i don't wanna live in your plastic habitat



I like to feel the breeze through trees

collect firewood and berries

throw away my phone and car keys

then i'll find a stream and talk to the bees



It's been a week since I shaved

Making beats in a cave

by bangin' pots with a branch

Now i'm livin' off the fat of the land

City life is a scam

Out here nothing is bland

When you're livin' like Tarzan



I'm the real landlord

cuz i don't pay rent

I use paracord to tie down my

North Face tent

which i keep zipped up to keep the moths out

I'm a city dropout

Used to mingle with the honeys at the Hofbräu

Now the cute bunnies hop out

From the hilltops with the beavers and ferrets

I don't got much but i'm down to share it

They just wanna munch on my lettuce and carrots



When the sun comes up

I slither out of my bag

i'll climb up a tree till i'm covered in sap

and i'll hang upside down like a bat

cuz i don't wanna live in your plastic habitat

and when the moon comes up

and the sky goes black

I'll say goodnight to the muskrats,

turtles and ants

then lay my head down on the grass

cuz i don't wanna live in your plastic habitat



All the things that I fear disappear

To the creatures of the woods

I'm endeared

A bird lives in my beard

And they don't think it's weird

When I dance in the nude by the fire

Under a full moon

Life gets brighter

My best friend is a squirrel

Named Earl

about

Coolzey Fairfield, Iowa

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
