lyrics

I lick the tip of the pen
And jot a tale of women and men
Stricken by deliberate trends
Fitted and delivered to them with particular blends
I'm sitting hidden within the covers on my futon


I lick the tip of the pen

And jot a tale of women and men
Stricken by deliberate trends
Fitted and delivered to them with particular blends
I’m sittin’ hidden within the covers on my futon
Watching Jimmy Neutron
Munchin' on croutons
Shaping fiction 'bout the dreamer living on coupons
Think of a man with ink in his hands
Living out of his Abraham Lincoln van on the brink of insan-
-Ity bitty city kiddies bringing the ruckus
Thinkin’ they understand what lingers above us
I complicate the characters

Some have cataracts

Others, sharp as a battle axe

Matter of fact, imagine that

Remove myself at first then add me back after the fact with laughing tracks
Flipping the tube
Biblical views
Critical news
Suspend my disbelief
Then gimme comic relief and topical beef, yeah

Think big, think different
Think of why you're living
Think big think different
So what ya living for?

I lick the tip of the pen
And jot a tale of women and men, beginning to end
Base em on the villains and heroism on my television

The walking dead, the talking heads spreading fear of terrorism
I’m just your friendly neighborhood observant man
Jottin notes, dropping flows, sippin bourbon man
I wanna better myself, spittin to nework
Hoping for hella-wealth and minimal effort
I think I deserve it even though I haven’t earned it

Hooks and loops bring us together like we’re written in cursive
Some of ya know me, a few scoutin'

If you dig the lyrics then you probably owe me, but who’s countin
Talk is cheap, that's why these rhymes are free
Lost the beat awkwardly pardon me, look ,let’s talk it out
My name is Vice Verse, I don’t know what I’m talkin about

Repeat chorus
