Aesop Rock - Klutz Lyrics

I am a man who uses the techniques of a bat to navigate...

Can't motherfuck a motherfucker
From the underfunded Klutz who never undercut the butcher
The pick-a-booger-at-your-wake is bumping "I'm your pusher"
Also at your wake, Juvenile Intruders at the gate
Brooding over waking history that bubbles from the blinking 12s of VCRs and Microwaves
Like time machines for shrinking elders, rifling through their recipe
Carrots, onions, celery, what unique amalgam of piss and repugnant energy
Spun him out of the 70s, to b-line for dessert?
Fire-eater trying to keep it on the green side of the dirt
This is tea-time with the worst, geriatrics on the decline of berserk
Back in my day we were three times more alert
Now I go through my old clothing trying to find nostalgic threads to sell
Walk away feeling like I should have never dressed myself
Sincerely I was never on the cutting edge, my hand was on the hilt
You're free to build with the other end
Shriek into the vacuum if in spite of your accomplishments
You wake up feeling empty like Houdini's grave probably is
Volley with the quintessential digital ager, I'm offended by everything
My opinions come in a manger, oh boy
Depreciating since they drove me off the lot, still into ghost stories and pot and the classic coconut bra
Procedural crime drama shows with holes in the plot, and reminding clones there's more to coping than a nose full of snot
Ah, old pros throw 'bows to the 808, you couldn't throw a rope over a baby gate
Bishop to queen 4 in damn Daniels under ram skulls
Plan for cloudy with a chance of anvils
Fever dreams of padded cells and jagged pills in frozen pipes
Socialites from pageant hell with plastic smiles and robot eyes
I'm hoping you all grow into the sentience you assume
As your moment of self-reflection is a moment for me too
Look, with the steel chair, sure to serve the veal rare, brush up your evasion and basic tactical field care
I was on that constant futile rage before the internet
I been ignored for longer than you've been interested
The posse promise you nobody feels threatened by a scarecrow covered in crows who feel welcomed
That's like hellions thinking hell is just ok but needs some polish
It helps to know intimidation's all about the optics
Come duck a bounty, it's a hoot, Suffolk County it's a zoo, puppy chow and bitches brew
It's not exactly chicken soup, it's heavy-lifters lifting, it's ginseng on his whistling
It's we don't find the flippancy convincing, 2 for flinching, older yeller
Never knew a no-kill shelter in his doggie days
Now I draw my neighbors over Kouign-amanns and coffee stains
A walled and whirling urchin, more observant than audacious
I document the great unwashed and curse in Lithuanian
For a gallery of grifters channeling Sid's action figures grafted with his little sister's after markers glue and scissors
It's trippy, the truth and fiction moving to a center
Maybe it's weirder they've never been photographed together
Sometimes the stomach disappears from under a retreating lens
And patterns of a need to please abusive folk reveal themselves
I'm peeling back the layers, I'm sneaking past the lasers
I'm a lover, I'm a fighter, I'm a seed to blackened acres
The dogs I think are following me home are out to kill me
Your music makes a motherfucker wanna move to Elm Street
Rejection of the spirit by the body at your service, if you mess-up every friendship come get swept up in the current
Here, wheels fall off of cars when they see him, seas part, green trees march out of Eden
I'm known to eat the heart and keep the archery uneven, are you starting to be part of the kinesis?

Got me on some other shit
Got me on some other shit
Got me on some other shit

Aesop Rock Klutz Comments
  1. Dayton Peters

    This guy should do music with Slim Shady. Those two could have a heck of a freestyle session

  2. Braeden Gendron

    he always looks like he hasn't slept for 18 hours

  3. Neokate

    "The truth and fiction moving to a center
    Maybe it's weirder they've never been photographed together"
    this fucking guy

    listening to impossible kid is amazing, it wasn't just music that sounded good, it wasn't just a nice experience, it was like listening to a movie of hilariously told stories, excessively thought-provoking dilemmas, etc

  4. Unknown Abuser

    This my introduction to Aesop! Thanks algorithm!

  5. Schlomo Goldberg

    this is so dope, its like he´s me on acid haha

  6. Thomas Myers

    damn dude, fire

  7. Lotoman5

    If "Cookies with Aesop" ever gets printed, sign me the heck up.

  8. cyNic 74

    Tom Waits of rap...metaphores in every line

  9. Kevin Kilbride

    I’ll be on some other shit

  10. Ryan James

    I think he might be an N type on MBTI (in Jungian "P" terms, but not sure of his stronger J function).

  11. Killa Cali Hustle

    Hold fuck dude!! That was insane I honestly dont think I've ever heard or seen you before but this was absolute FIRE! And I really love how you did the video, would there be any kinda tips for a super low budget self direct/editing emcee looking to make some shit of this caliber?? Much love dude I will definitely be checking out more

    Night Man

    None Shall Pass

  12. Alan Cashman

    The only Kimya Dawson diss track ever recorded

  13. Spidey

    "If you mess up every friendship, come get swept up in the current here." DUDE. It's like Aes is in my head.

  14. P Squiddy

    I bet he has a big dick

  15. Night Man

    Holy Shit 🤯

  16. LRShark

    The other day I met a guy at the local gas station that listened to AES, Walked in and heard Mystery Fish playing in the background. Instantly became friends

  17. MF DOOM Madvillain

    He checkmated your ass with his lyrics!

  21. Thomas Myers

    The beat is just too sick

  22. Caleb Bains

    "I've been ignored for longer than you've been interested" love this line

  23. Yung Reggie

    Aes is starting to look more and more like your friend’s dad who you think is a chump but is actually a really cool and chill guy

    Night Man

    Then when you're 16, he lets you hit his blunt when he finds out you smoke.

  24. Derek Brumley

    I like the flow but the guy said alot of words but didnt get any message across like it was just a mash of sentences that rhymed

    Night Man

    Watch the video How Aesop Rock Writes Rhymes, You will start to catch on to his flow.

    Thomas Myers

    That or just read the lyrics, you may have to do some reading but they are all fire I swear to you

    Night Man

    @Thomas Myers Derek Brumley is New, So He will get a bit of it. But won't get all of it, until he has heard it a couple of more times.

    If you didn't pull anything from my songs either you didn't look hard enough, Or you were just did not interested in the first place.

    Night Man

    Check out Dorks for another mainstream diss. They even deleted his live performance of the song from Stephen Colbert show

  51. Mr Freeman

    Can't motherfuck a motherfucker, especially when he cremated his dead mother....

  52. 2BallsAnd aCane

    4 bars of Aes contain more thought pound for pound than some's entire career.....

  53. L.I.P. Productions

    The Intro must be a reference to Mos Def - Mathematics

  54. Aaron How

    Solid!!!!!! :)

  55. Omar Who

    I think Aesop and Royce should collab. Theyre two of the absolute best, both just getting better with time...

    Night Man

    Em and Royce don't like Weathermen, so as amazing as that sounds. It mostly likely won't happen.

    Omar Who

    @Night Man that's a darn shame. Either way, Aesop keeps on doin it.

    Night Man

    @Omar Who But you should still check Weathermen (Cage, Tame1, Copywrite, Aesop, E-lp, and more), Just watch Cage - Left it to Us.

  56. Josue Ramirez

    I love you

  57. Immortal Ideas

    Straight S●LID work!!

  58. Yes, I expect you to read all of it.

    I don't think some white people can hear the beat and in turn they have fans who also suffer from this lack of rhythm .

  76. turtle4614

    🔥 stays on repeat!

  77. LaserFeesh

    I think I had a dream I was that dog following you home a couple days before this dropped. Remember looking at you through a flip phone with night vision. It was strange when this dropped the next day. Lol

  78. face

    Lot of people forget to like the video

  79. Curricane

  85. Dillon DeShane

    Before this came i told an ex lover of mine "i literally should have never dressed mysef" and said "im such a klutz" multiple times also had some would be hooligan friends coming through the back gate. Ex also ended up pregant trippy shit.

  86. Uncle Spaceman

    is it just me orrr does it sound like he's taking shots at someone on the low… aha

  87. BansheeMilk

    The man is a mad genius

  88. Jason Green

    Weird, when I listen to this 100x's plus, I've always heard "still into ghost stories and pot and the classic coke and a brat"(as in wurst). It made since to me, because he ends the next line with plot. Now I'm befuddled as to what a classic coconut bra is... as movies, pot, a drink, and some food make sense to me... I can't see where classic coconut bra is relevant. Any thoughts on this verse anyone? Lol, I listened again after I read the lyrics and heard coconut bra. I guess sometimes we hear what we want. Another Aesop puzzle unsolved...

  89. Nykkii Sahl

    I felt like he knew I was watching this from another universe.

  90. Brandon Kane

    Aesop is a motherfucking problem.

  91. James Garcia

    how now brown cow

  92. sokota

    Aesop Rock is the only rapper alive in the entire universe that can put a chess move and a Vine reference on the same rhyme and make it sound cool.

  93. Cod3Thr33

    “Like Houdini’s grave probably is...”

  94. FullRetardRepTar

    Daniel Kish... heh.

  95. FullRetardRepTar

    I just love you aes. Love. Love. Love.

  96. space ho's

    Aesop illest lycrist!
