Now is you is the villain of my kabuki hologram
Cuz I hobble with hollow hands
In the first line of this phrase, Aesop is probably referring to his video game system which is likely Japanese-made (remember, only Playstation & Nintendo were big at this time). Playing these video games for such long periods has distorted his perception of who the villains are in his real life.
The second line in this phrase shows, maybe, a bit of remorse for the way he has been spending his time. The hobble he refers to is the way in which he is going through life at the time. Rather than walking confidently with a healthy gait, he is limping; just barely getting through life. Not only is he hobbling through life, but he is using his hands for empty endeavors. While he would rather create art or go out and succeed in fighting against the world’s negativity, he is instead stuck at home working away at something relatively meaningless in the grand scheme of things: playing video games.
