Aesop Rock - Grace Lyrics




Ian why don't you say grace
"dear god thanks, and if you loved me vegetables would be extinct"
Now I'm looking down the barrel of a string-bean side like an exodus of biblical proportion redefined
Rectangle seat 4, squeeze 5, each one
May not be excused from the table ‘til the green gone
Stomach revvin‘ up an episodic rerun
Where's a dissipating plume of smoke when you need one?
Chris and Graham hate ‘em too but advocate a braver chew invented for the code red, cola chaser, nose held, gulp!
Moments later 2 have been released
Leaving me the legroom and the legume police
Going "freeze, you with the pretzeled arms
Send your fabricated nausea my best regards
And know this kitchen as a prison ‘til the pea pods die
I could sit here all night"
So could I

Who was at the doorjust now?
Kids on dirt bikes asking you to bunny-hop the curbsides Really?
Yup I told em "oh he busy, he staring at his green beans being a total pussy"

Who was at the doorjust now?
Kids on skateboards asking you to navigate the claymores Really?
Yup, I told em "oh he can't, he in the kitchen pouting and terrified ofa plant"

Blink Twice if you are being held hostage
I speak and spell ofa sleeper cell in the hospice
Woke, impersonating busy little helpers
That intimately purr between the hiccuping up of feathers
Pick a porcelain dish
A single portion canned
Frozen or fresh
Defies the glory ofthe Poultry or fish
Via communal bloodletting that rupture spud levy
No '87 supper-scape was truly flood-friendly, ever
Including at your basic cemetery for contaminated textures 60 minutes into never
Where room temp heirlooms emanate a crude black mist
To a rendition of "dude, dad's pissed"
Tell dad dude's pissed too
Not to mention genuinely brandishing a the new gill hue
Still out-mule any last strafing watchmen
‘til the lord taketh waiting as an option

Who was at the doorjust now?
Kids on dirt bikes asking you to bunny-hop the curbsides Really?
Yup I told em "oh he busy, he staring at his green beans being a total pussy

Who was at the doorjust now?
Kids on skateboards asking you to navigate the claymores Really?
Yup, I told em "oh he can't, he in the kitchen pouting and terrified ofa plant"

Less like toes in a tide pool
More like, left, right, poached from notable giant Kaiju
Fat neck, fine tooth, rock and lean, yelling
"this ends now eat the god damn beans!" ah!
Hangdog mouth talk slang wrong and that there's flatware exhumed by a crane arm
Time for some action
Stab one ripe for a swipe and extraction
Brined in malpractice
Carried to the cavernous yap and obliged access
If only in compliance with a deep-fried fascist, peep
Literally bite down once
And my tongue get a flooding from my uninvited guts
Pointer finger plug a hole in the damn
Ma notice, "ok gross, dinner's over, go spit", pop call "bullshit"
Both of my brothers break in, like "he's on his Davie Hogan no mistaken", by the way

Who was at the doorjust now?
Kids on dirt bikes asking you to bunny-hop the curbsides Really?
Yup I told em "oh he busy, he staring at his green beans being a total pussy

Who was at the doorjust now?
Kids on skateboards asking you to navigate the claymores Really?
Yup, I told em "oh he can't, he in the kitchen pouting and terrified ofa plant"

    blowfish, not bloat fish. also, thanks!

  8. ChangingYoutubeUsernameIsNeedlesslyComplex

    This is Calvin and Hobbes in lyrical form. Know Aesop while he's live, everyone will claim to have known him once he's died.

  9. Decimonster

    "This ends now, EAT THE GODDAMN BEANS"

    Joshua Kirk

    That line always cracks me up.

    Jay Bean

    “AHHH!” 👌🔥

  10. Son Anthony

    My friends and I did a verse to this beat. Check out the track "Companions" on my channel :)

  11. TheNewRavager

    I swear to god that "I can't do it" in the beginning was sampled from an episode of doctor who

    Max Medlow

    I thought it sounds like gollum from Lord of the rings, but I'm not sure

  12. Cunning Linguist

    Can I like a million times?!? Please!

  13. A Giannakop

    I love this song because, yes it is just about how Aes hates vegetables, but it's also about how mental blocks over stupid mundane things can keep us from fun/great things. I get this interpretation on how he calls himself a "pussy" and "terrified of a plant." Aes explores something mundane, and also gives an insight on a huge pitfall many of us face on more serious subject matter.

  14. Antonio Miller

    Love Aesop! Can make a song about dam near anything.
    Story about a cat ✓
    Story about not wanting to eat vegetables ✓
    Story about not wanting to wake up in the morning

  15. Random Videos Productions

    tip for kids: when your parents arent (usually early in the meal) if you can, wrap your veggies in your napkin, then put it in your pocket. then just say you have to go to the bathroom, and when you get in there, flush em! its worked for me for 14 years!

  16. Mr. Roosterr

    I can't tell if this song is simply about not wanting to eat vegetables or if it has a deeper meaning...Aesop made a song about his cat so....

    If you're going to support one side, can you provide some physical evidence?

    Captain Sterling

    Mr. Roosterr Aesop has some of the deepest meanings and wordplays of any artist I ever seen. But this is straightforward and funny. nothing more, nothing less.

    Lil Dufflebag

    Yea, this one is just about him not eating vegetables as a kid

  17. KiloCharlie 218

    hahahaha this is so sick.

  18. vex

    It's about smoking weed and where it can lead.

    kalle slocter

    I snorted a weed and it didn't do anything to me

  19. Culture Goblin

    I love this and Fryerstarter so much. It's the true mark of talent when you can rap about a completely mundane subject and still make it amazing.

    arex82

    Absolutely love your Jareth avatar. Can we be friends?? 😬

    Andrew Glenn

    Hes tapped into the switches of descriptive transcriptions of associative elements

    ValhallaBeckons

    Not to mention the song about his cat. Aes is a lyrical phenom.

  20. Brazil Doublemint Gum 144

    face your fears and believe in yourself because only then will your grace be found.

  21. QuadraxisTheGreat

    fuckn sux no lyruics

    Bad News

    +MrCaptainTea Well, someone doesn't have a good vocabulary

    ogorbetter 420

    you like asap rocky

  22. AJ Kings

    only aesop rock can pull this type of lyric content

  23. xana richerson

    It's because of how profound his wordplay and vocabulary is

  24. Timothy E.

    How is this so amazing it's literally about not wanting to eat vegetables

    80sKid

    +Lunar Orbit You misunderstood me, and i can see how my comment came across as stupid. When i said the subject matter dosnt matter, it was my way of saying Aesop could rap about anything and make it exciting, not that Grace dosnt have subject matter

    Lunar Orbit

    @PixelPerfect28 That's understandable.

    Evan Martin-Snyder

    yup idk how he does it lmao

    Jed Sturm

    @80sKid - The rare intellectually and emotionally intelligent comment on youtube - Keep doing you.

    poughkeepsieblue

    Because it's fucking Aesop. Nuff said.
