night light lyrics – aesop rock

day turns night (8x)

night light suckas.
put one up shackle me, not clean logic procreation
i did invent the wheel, in a previous generation
while the triple sixers l*ssos keep angels roped in the bas*m*nt
i locate modern halos and p*ss em out to the pavement
y’all catch a 30-second flash frame
dirty cooperative neptune bloom head-trip split
fantastic! fathom the splicing of major league low lifes
with anti hero earthworm mentality (godzilla!)
i pace my game for zero hour completion
see a cretin’s still a cretin even speakin’ altered moniker
american nightmare lost in the monitor
i’ll hold the door open so you can stagger through
then ten berserk and bread cookies in after you
it’s the gutter and i spell it with the ‘g’ i stole from ‘get
the f**k up’
noise crutch stolen wretched refuse of my teaming dumb luck
still i promise temperance storm breed still bleeding amish
see the freaks sucked out the bottom dropped while three bears invade the cottage
and i can’t sleep now
yeah, the police’ll laugh
you won’t be laughing when your covered wagons crash
you won’t be laughing when you’re hosted by the ghost of
christmas past
you won’t be laughing when your blow up doll’s
got a headache and won’t give up the *ss
and i lay my kicks to rest when i’m impressed
so i staple-gun them to my feet
this origami dream is beautiful: pull the tail watch the wings
flap
but you really can’t do a thing with that

all i ever wanted was to pick apart the day
swallow up the pieces
spit ’em at your species
reachin’ the city of lost barnacles and leeches
night-light got me when the daylight went to evening
night (light) day (light) x8

i’m pretty sure i got a pulse. plus
we shimmy cross the centerfold, and our night light engulfed

just let me keep the crumbs (please)
with seven deadly stains
to hear the plane to crystal conscious
the results a dead-beat trying to make a dollar off a bomb
threat (ok)
lift me to activism chain activate wild-style pluto orbit
set a course then push the b*tton
i swallow spores born by the laws of a morbid glutton
i can spot a drunk battalion by the charlie chaplin waddle
zig zag and zig ’em again before they can pull a badge out
but i lash out
another thick installment of one night in gotham like
‘houston we have a problem’
they’re buffing the trains the same days the graffiti writers
bomb ’em
who split how many freaks on box cuts of a high road bellow?
heads ripped! watch red bricks turn yellow
i’ll try to meet the wizard
but a tailgating t*t-man holding an oil can
won’t let a hermit crab break in his new sh*ll-toes
life’s not a b*tch, life is a beotch
who keeps the villagers circling the marketplace
out searching for the g-spot
maybe she didn’t feel y’all shared any similar interests
or maybe you’re just an *sshole; maybe i’m just an *sshole
kiss the speaker wire, seaming swashbuckler or pagan thresh hold
stomach full of diner food
wings span cast black upon views
here to help release the rabid hounds or pick apart your mood
i got this friend of polar nature and it’s all peace
when i seek similar stars but can’t sit at the same feast
metal captain!
this cat is asking if i’ve seen his bit of lost p*ssion
i told him: ‘yeah’ i gave him one last look and smashed him

all i ever wanted was to pick apart the day
swallow up the pieces
spit ’em at your species
reachin’ the city of lost barnacles and leeches
night-light got me when the daylight went to evening
night (light) day (light).
