For A Second I'm Cool

lyrics

Yeah it's that real boom bap
You know that sound that immediately lets you know how old I am as soon as you hear it

Purveying through waveforms that are cool passive
Classic jazzy animation don't you just sit on your asses
Have you feeling like you're up in Vegas cash stackin
Raising up the masts and sailing no anchor draggin so says the captain

I made this in isolation, shoulda rented a cabin
Read annihilation or throw on some thoreau, and just imagine
The extent of my art hasn't been touched
I'm 30 years young and my time in the lab is still clutch

I think about it with family and friends, I'm so distant
Head spinning mad degrees when you call my name
Respond to music with emotion even as just an infant
The seductive feel of it, is my long-time shame

You are all I had, will I ever love anyone as much as I do
The moment when I come upon an effervescent tune
Music hugged me when I moved on from bullies at school
To trouble at home, I grabbed the headphones
Music loved me

For a second I'm cool, in this life with no meaning
Overstepping the rules, I just stop,
Consider your perspective and views
Every second I've got, I owe it all to you
For a second I'm cool, in this life with no meaning
Overstepping the rules, I just stop,
Consider your perspective and views
Every second I've got, I owe it all to you

That's right, you who are listening
Even though you're distant
Keep this thing playing
I'll be hi-hat delayin,
Sample uh filterin
Vocal pilferin'
All the things you've come to expect
Will come correct
I knock out beats on wood
Just to say I really can't imagine a day
Where I will fall off like my idol Kanye
Oops
From beatboxing in bathrooms to humming in hallways
To sing in broad day didn't have this confidence always
When I hear I inspired you, it's better than every knob I twist
Every moment of consciousness writing this shit
Every feeling of getting it off my chest, and the rest
It's hard to overstate, how much you make me feel like the best
I could have 10 dollars and 1000 fans still feel like I copped a hundred grand
It's what the lifestyle demands
It ain't all about finance or romance
Before thinking about who you'll be kissing what you're missing is who's listening

For a second I'm cool, in this life with no meaning
Overstepping the rules, I just stop,
Consider your perspective and views
Every second I've got, I owe it all to you
For a second I'm cool, in this life with no meaning
Overstepping the rules, I just stop,
Consider your perspective and views
Every second I've got, I owe it all to you

Haha, I know that Kanye line was cheap
but somebody's gotta take the cheap shots

When you when you when you
See me in the cafe with a coffee don't fade me
My internet was out and my flow is so lazy
Beats by the pack and I'm looking like a snack
Your crew seems to lack like a donut no glazing
I'm the best video game composer of the decade
Catch me playing Makoto in third strike in arcades
Catch these plans before they disappear into the archives
When I'm dead my discography, will look like I had five lives
No less than three albums every year that I'm alive
RIP my hard drive from before 2005
I never forget you baby, it's what made me
You'll be better off if your career just never takes off
Not even every brother karamazov could carry me obviously
I'm a VIP so please don't tarry me
My styles are like a grab bag you gravitate to
This style is like a swag rap that aggravates you

2 Mello 2018 keeping it so obscene
Said I was gonna go clean in 2014 but the world's too damn mean
Not ready to die yet, still got more projects
World is a fuck
