Every little step she takes makes me spin
Cause I know I'll never have to ever sleep alone again

from Aesop Rock – Prosperity Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

People get married to make sure they don’t die alone more than to be with the one they love.

A recurring pattern appears in this album, centering around the words “every little step”. It appears four times:

Track 13, Spare a Match:

“My every little step set in a star
Retina scarred; tread in a sled of bedbugs got my dead head in a jar”

Track 14, Attenton Span:

“Every little step we take breaks the dreams
Of a war pig itching to re-stitch the seams”

This track, Track 16, Prosperity:

“Every little step she takes makes me speak
Cause I know I’ll never have to ever sleep alone again”

Track 17, No Splash:

“Every little step you take breaks the tangles
In the chest, developed in the abomidable trouble”
