Put the pieces back together my way
Aesop’s one true goal is to analyze the way things are, and do what he can to make them how he wants to be. He could be referring to the rap industry, or just life in general.
He wishes that he had the ability to follow his dreams by controlling the world in which he lives the way that he in-visions it to be.
Aesop rock mentions in much of his music that he struggles with life and his own mind; this track gives some kind of reference to how he sees the American and hip-hop communities and his thought on it. Also how he struggles with this concept as it agitates him.
