lyrics

As I meditate on the speakers
See you preying on the weakest
Settling for lesser quality
Whatever's cheapest
I see the joke
It's just a spoke in the wheel
Running parallel to the other spokes
That other folks feel
The smokes real enough to them
To me it's just a puff from a pipe
That gets me hyper
So that I can rock it rough
Never bluff
The straight shooter with my wordplay
Liver than McGuyver
Because I could use anything you throw my way
I'm steady making lemonade
And praying for one thing
That's to do what I'm supposed to do
Praise the monkey king
Hanuman who is my higher self
Got me spinning in place
Like the earth
For what it's worth
Which is everything
and nothing at all Paul Wall
So don't stall
Wasting my time on my trip
You got gall
Y'all got me appalled
With your selfish ways
You don't care about another soul at all
Fuck what your mouth says

Life is a bitch
Nah, son
Life is a wheel
Steady spinning in space
The whole of time is revealed
As a roller coaster ride
and we're the willing participants
Ringing in our ears is the innocence
Life is a bitch
Nah, son
Life is a wheel
That'll get me to my job
To my bed
To my next meal
Get me to my grave
We all slaves to the rhythm of life
So I enjoy losing just as much as winning

I get the deja vu
I know it's happened to you
Because it's all been done
Before the one became two
When the one made the mirror
It was the root of all fears
That's why they say that bad luck runs seven years
and that's why I'm not afraid
To break them as a symbol
Because seven is the number of the Godhead
It's simple
We're all scared of our destiny
Scared to be free
Scared to be the masters of reality
Until we see
That what we are afraid of is infinity
Living free
Sin was created by man
There's no such thing
and what brings us closer to death
Brings us closer to eternal life
Duality brings the dichotomy
So that's why I have to be discerning
When I'm learning from a man
Who doesn't understand his own yearning
Concerning the question that's burning in his brain
Which is
Why lord why do I have to feel pain?

Life is a bitch
Nah, son
Life is a wheel
Steady spinning in space
The whole of time is revealed
As a roller coaster ride
and we're the willing participants
Ringing in our ears is the innocence
Life is a bitch
Nah, son
Life is a wheel
That'll get me to my job
To my bed
To my next meal
Get me to my grave
We all slaves to the rhythm of life
So I enjoy losing just as much as winning

As I meditate on the speakers
See you preying on the weakest
Settling for lesser quality
Whatever's cheapest
I see the joke
It's just a spoke in the wheel
Running parallel to the other spokes
That other folks feel
The smokes real enough to them
To me it's just a puff from a pipe
That gets me hyper
So that I can rock it rough
Never bluff
The straight shooter with my wordplay
Liver than McGuyver
Because I could use anything you throw my way
I'm steady making lemonade
And praying for one thing
That's to do what I'm supposed to do
Praise the monkey king

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
