Aesop Rock – Hot Dogs (Official Video)


We’re so excited we don’t know what to do because we’re about to re-enter the level above human I couldn’t have had a better life than I’ve had these 21 years, and if it was good here. I know its gonna be twice as good when we get up there This isn’t a troubling circumstance don’t take it as that. Its just a gateway. Just a doorway. What we’re doing is we’re going home We’re going home to those individuals who sent us here to do this task and this is the happiest, and joyous thing that you can- Alright Raised on dirty hot dog water and popcorn butter EPMD tellin’ me every pop star a sucker Don’t let him smell the pot stickers, He’ll stick around for supper He’ll stick around for cheesecake, then three days, then the summer Where spiders eat their mothers Where rodents eat their young I’m not here to make sense where there is none, That’s dumb. My attitude is ghastly any gallantry been going gone, I think I’m probably a lot like dating Mola Ram, I should work on that. The geezer not a leader I’m a loner Lover, believer, upholder of the under Just not a people person, please forgive me if I’m flustered I’ll save a thousand whales before your grits are even buttered My name is Aesop Rock, I’ve been a mess for my entire life All I know is fight or flight, what the fuck’s a silent night?
