speakeasy

Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Hoo yea hoo yea oh da da da da

See the politician
Sitting by the kitchen
Said he
pack up
Let's go
Let's pack up
Let's go

Let's go

There was this tortoise, its shell was covered with jewels
And had been since time began
It knew
the streets and spread like a disease
Neighborhoods infected then misdirected
It ain't no cure and it's hard to correct it
Bless by the most high cursed by
the streets and spread like a disease
Neighborhoods infected then misdirected
It ain't no cure and it's hard to correct it
Bless by the most high cursed by
of phrase
Some colors to fly
As I float by
In the parade

Plus I dream in skin scented sentences
Of a stronger faster fiercer you
And to each noun,
there.

I once was apprenticed to a man who was living
In the eye if the hurricane to know despair,

He knew all the dreams by heart just like sailing
turn of phrase
Some colors to fly
As I float by 
In the parade

Plus I dream in skin scented sentences
Of a stronger faster fiercer you
You consider 'em king, about to icing on cakes
Chariots cruise at tortoise speeds
Lay your bifocals on royalty
Longer than Sears catalogue
Stern
our own few circles 'round the sun
We get it backwards
And our seven years go by like one 

Dog years
It's the season of the itch
Dog years
With
close to me I can't help but scream that this way's the way for me. I'll make you see that this way's the way for me. I'll make you see what is meant by
Discover all your beauty
And let the good vibes flow
But I've been called by a certain duty

'Cause in my dream
I cut a frog in half
And a turtle too
should've kept him in a cage
Kept him sitting waiting there
to show the tortoise middle-age



Cause you never back an animal
that struggles on two
never know my name

Just give me something
I'll take nothing
Just give me something
I'll take nothing

Now the drought, is crippled by the rain
It
the streets and spread like a disease
Neighborhoods infected then misdirected
It ain't no cure and it's hard to correct it
Bless by the most high cursed by
the streets and spread like a disease
Neighborhoods infected then misdirected
It ain't no cure and it's hard to correct it
Bless by the most high cursed by
the streets and spread like a disease
Neighborhoods infected then misdirected
It ain't no cure and it's hard to correct it
Bless by the most high cursed by
I hope to see you sometime
Though our paths will never intertwine again
I hope you notice
I'm no hare and you're no tortoise

And I'm touched by
Youth went by on our backs, morals intact, we were never ganna crack
Spread-eagled, but never once looking back
When we were young we were chasing
should've kept him in a cage
Kept him sitting waiting there
To show the tortoise middle-age
Cause you never back an animal that struggles on two legs
I'd
Down to her seaweed bed
And a pillow made of a tortoise shell
She placed beneath my head
She fed me shrimp and caviar
Upon a silver dish
From her
He trips on a pothole that's not been filled in
He waits for an elevator, one to nine
A lady walks in and waits by his side
Her heels are high and her
Inside the tortoise shell, tortured 
Orbiting hell's orchard intrigued but not compelled
I smell a hint of charred child flesh sweeping through my quarters
as they stambled on blistered feet rough shod.
He never helped the poor and weak viewed them all as vermin,
So when he fell they passed him by
of clothes I remember havin' rocks in the hall
Onn the glimmer with the glock by the ball
Servin' up a jab and workin' security six to six
Then it's
jumped on in and she pulled me down, down to her seaweed bed.
A pillow she made of tortoise shells, and placed beneath my head.
She fed me shrimp
