Aesop Rock – Keep Off the Lawn Lyrics

Produced By: Aesop Rock

You pyonged “Aesop Rock – Keep Off the Lawn”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Good evening
Alright, yeah
Happy to be breathing, yeah
I am alive, yeah
I am alive, yeah

You look like you've seen a ghost
You look like you've seen a ghost

[Verse 1]
Most copious brain soaked in opiates
Notice how the phobias appropriately procreate

Woke up with a ghost farm focused on his groceries
When they aren't telling stories, they are multiplying grossly on the lawn
Let em loiter, never let em spawn

The apparitions have been drinking this water for too long
So when they gather by the birdbath in the morning he will tell em
I mean no disrespect, but you have all outstayed your welcome
Interesting, in a sense

Interrupt commiserating phantoms on your picket fence
How quickly they will lift their heads

And breathe an ultimatum like the dead don't argue
Said you're living by the bayonet, but how alive are you
Shit, A is all juice and bad etiquette
Elbows on the table, lobster bibbing on the ready-set
He said, but how alive
I don't know homey, you decide
No, you decide, fine

How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive

[Verse 2]
And one by one around the yard til each one felt communal pride
Like they had done their little part in cleaning up the public
With a steaming plate of justice for them Easy Baker stomachs
We the legends that home with the unremembered
Geriatric lore in the clutch of the budding censor
Who snuck around the art police and all related governments
To infiltrate a human lung and hike up off his tongue and lip
Money's in the market for a mother ship
Double as a vessel that drag its legacy under it
And who am I to hang them out to dry by the heap
When if rehydrating fails, we're all dumber because of me
Zombies of the antiquated nation chatter quietly
The too alive channel from the library of rivalry
And summer's in the mud, winter's by the tracks
No story goes untold, Aes is back

I got a handful rocking the same poker face
Down to dance around the table like they own the place

You look like you've seen a ghost
I got the whole world thinking it's a holiday
Cause they can smell the chum in the water from miles away
You look like you've seen a ghost

How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
How alive, too alive
