Aesop Rock - Dog Years Lyrics




Under the boardwalk
Half eighth and a half-ate corn dog
Face halfway to P-40 Warhawk
Graze in the gore with the whores and the warthogs
Aged in a basement
Aes count cake in dog years
I'm rich when I'm broke, it's amazing
I'm three-eyed fish in the moat, I'm a joke
I'm a Kilroy pissed in the snow
Most of the extolled folk in his past
Grew up into poser and sociopath
Old portfolios openly dissed
OG morals Tokyo drift
I's low key miffed
You was trying to get your own pants un-pissed
Yelling "fuck the rich"
Now he down low count dough in a bubble
Spit-shine shoes, throw coats on puddles
In the face of fame I never cuddle with the cancer
I'm patient, age-old bugs in the amber
Bed-head Lazarus, climb out a time warp
No one to impress, what would I comply for, hmm
I never ate dinners with pop stars
You wouldn't paint litter on a Bob Ross
New York slobs hop scotch on rock salt
Less 2Pac, more pock marks

We don't know
Another [?] we don't care
You're so cheap
We don't know, we don't know, we don't know
We don't want
Another [?] we don't need
Yours to keep
We don't know, we don't know, we don't know

Primordial metazoan friends
Break bread with a plan to coalesce
Turns out couldn't even coexist
It was each go Ronin or open a wrist all gross
Unsung sons and daughters
Mall-rats, brawlers, punks and paupers
In a scramble to see who hugs the corners
Who cuts the cord, who drugs the gorgeous
Who runs on fours through dungeon crawlers
On a speed date with a red cup full of quarters
A never buzz with the hornets
Stay home, tongue on a 9-volt, punk's not a corpse yet
Get served, thank the pig
No gold, no myrrh, no frankincense
A little man-on-wire, no safety net
It's a way of life, it's a face of death
I cold came in the door sure as Rae is chef
Open, robots owning emotion
New to a cruelty, humor and love
Each day a little less stupid as fuck, hmm
Burnouts at the prom
Turn down for your mom
Truck-stop cutlery, crown to cancel
Broadcast from the bouncy castle
Let's go

We don't know
Another [?] we don't care
You're so cheap
We don't know, we don't know, we don't know
We don't want
Another [?] we don't need
Yours to keep
We don't know, we don't know, we don't know

  9. Joshua Meaders

    Idk why everyone tripping, is Aesop Rock And tobacco, of course it will be dope, they did a track a while back called "dirt" on one of tobaccos' albums

  10. Escapable Entropy

    One of the best 3 songs on this mediocre album

    Escapable Entropy

    @Carlos Ortiz Apology accepted.

    I personally can't say anything positive about TOBACCO's productions at all. Running back through the album again just gives me a horrible taste in my mouth, like the amount of random ear rape is intolerable and not even Aesop can save it. Theres a reason nobody mixes with chiptunes. Clearly some people are enjoying it, and thats good for them, but this is the first big blemish on Rhymesayers IMO

    Tyler Bailey

    Mediocre comment

    Pete Magallanes

    Maybe it sounds better to people with more of an artsy ear for music. Production may not be on point, but it is a solid effort. 6.5/10

  11. Haole Phace

    Bed Head Lazarus

    Carlos Ortiz

    Climb outta time warp

  12. Brick Beefcake

    Fuck yes.

  13. Bassotronics

    This track is trippy as fuck.
    One of my favorites in the album. I love the 80s feel and funny synth chord progression.

    Old portfolios openly dissed
    OG morals, Tokyo drift
    I's low key miffed
    You was trying to get your own pants un-pissed

    Hmm, I never ate dinners with pop stars
    You wouldn't paint litter on a Bob Ross
    New York slobs hop scotch on rock salt
    Less 2Pac, more pock marks, mmm

  15. KitsuneAlex

    Fav track from the Album <3

  16. Nick

    Huge BMSR vibes

    Nick

    @Keekenox I mean hes in it yes, but so are a few other talented artists.

    Keekenox

    @Nick Ah, my mistake. Interesting, so BSMR is a collab thing? My friend had just told me that BMSR was a pseudonym, guess he was wrong.

    Nick

    @Keekenox haha no worries re reading my comment it was a bit harsh, I apologize. So BMSR is a band called Black Moth Super Rainbow, and Tobacco is essentially the lead on it, but hes accompanied by another artist who goes by The seven fields of Aphelion who also has solo projects in that name like tobacco. There's some others in the band like, iffernaut, pony diver, and steve slv but they aren't as well known. It's like indie electronica/psychadelia synth pop type mix. You should check em out.

    Keekenox

    @Nick I'll definitely be checking some of those out.

    Nick

    @Keekenox sounds good deff check out BMSR it's quite worth it.

  17. jah varino
