Upper-middle class hood american dream
Double heart attack the parents relieved
Stripped the attic of its centenial steez
carried worried woes symbolized by heavy LPs

First stop: pawn shop.
Second: safe deposit
Third: garbage dump, record store, closet
Combonation unlock
Stuffin up their safe
never really knowing pops unique musical tastes

Now, Mr. Bryer's no fan of the rap
has no idea about the production on tracks
I step thru with mysterious vibes
he sells me stacks for a pair of the fives

Then I reconstruct you
rush through what I'm up to
mutt music bluff
the broken up and krushed grooves
even with the standard compositions
writing choppy style standing on tradition


We join Dustin
Studio scene
Musicians tripping off the LSD and the green
Hey, it’s the Seventies
Trying to ripen the love
Turn the last decade's folk into pyshcadelic funk

Engineer fumbles with patchbay cables
Who knows what’s through what
Stray labels.
I’m not really sure how it sounded to them
Played off vinyl now:
be a powerful blend

We're back.
Find the rightsholder in a rocking chair
Excuse me, got a John Handcock to spare?
Don't want to rob you, just want your name
so you can get paid and play with me on stage

I mean not to invade
I mean not to attack
like a gas man wanting all your land for the frack
Only seeking your consent so you can finally speak
and join up with the others -
several thousand deep.

Best not get sampled my friend
Lest your music becomes a tool wielded by producers
Mixed up with other broken intros and breakbeats
Windows into ya soul been closing lately

Dont get sampled my friend
Or maybe you will be a bite of something bigger than your little parting fugue
Cut, scratched, triggered, replayed, or looped
Thanks for your contribution to this stone soup
