Aesop Rock - Lazy Eye Lyrics




(Super fresh)

My spirit animal comes with a pretzel bun
Troll of the treadmill
Record on the Kessel Run (allegedly)
Edgy from elevensies to megabucks
Techies with the treble down
This is how we level up
Dead meat, time travel, pressure, and disease
Ass ushered out of two fingers pecking at the keys
The coping mechanism in his LMNOPs
Went from healthy to unhealthy to a hell he never leaves
Cineplex jesus, curse at the curly fries
Mullin' over Chuck D, telling me, "Diversify"
I'm at the SuperCuts supin' up the wardrobe
Forecast looking like Ganesh on four phones
"Hello, hello, hello, hello"
Base camp, space camp
Bass in your face-fuck, brace for the rain dance
Back in the back of the classroom
After a magical nap in a vacuum

Act natural, whatever that means for ya
Whatever that means for ya
Whatever that
Ah (Fresh)

Before climbing douchebag mountain, I was skate or die
Started eatin' kale and came to terms with my lazy eye
Puttin' on the yoga lady, cuttin' off the cable guy
Whistle while you're waiting for your condition to stabilize
AV cables everywhere, every piece of vinyl scratched
Mentholated tiger balm, Aleve with the arthritis cap
Irons in the niacin, iron choir riot masked
Unabashed privacy expanding into simulcast
40 winks, never the same adventure
Refreshing with a sing-a-long of stexicism ever
In the end, gotta wonder if it's even worth the effort
No stairways into heaven, you can step into the Escher
Some people have mistaken my allegiance for a weakness
It fucked me up for eons, I wish there was a theist
The type that fake his death then forget he faked his death
Show up on TV, in the crowd at the AVNs, like...

Act natural, whatever that means for ya
Whatever that
(Fresh)

Sometimes I feel my heart putrefying inside my body
From diary of the dark to piety in the ponzi
On my better days and then mingle and walk off into the poppy
On my worst, work is overshadowed by the monty
Had to buy some clothes that fit me
And pretend I like agave
With a promise to his congress not to compromise the motley in him
Maybe I should kinda sorta move to Mars
I'm feeling kinda done, too many moving parts
The piss poor vision is forty percent floaters
The kitchen is a chorus of glorious leftovers
The friends you confessed all the dark shit to
Would weaponize the information before we could send roses
And they want a little pearl in how he got to where we at
I can't remember where I am, I feel it's probably a trap
Balk with the lawless, cough in his notes
Walk on even when the walls hug his coat

Oh and act natural, whatever that means for ya
Whatever that means for ya
Whatever that means for ya
(Fresh)

  6. Immortal Ideas

    Hella S●LID 👈✔✔✔✔

  7. Katlego Motaung

    As much as only few are wealthy, so are a few who deliver good music and so are a few good fans. The best musicians aren't the mainstream ones imo.

  8. Suggah Ree

    You been my favorite mc for years and years. How in the fuck do you remember the words to all your songs? I especially wonder this when ive gone to see you live and you were so fucked up you almost couldn't stand. But you know the words. That's champion status.

  9. James Wyatt DuGrey

    Holy shit this was awesome but goddamn that 16k is loud af.

  10. Talon x Williams

    👑Crowned the most lyrical Emcee ever!!! Agreed

  11. Connor Seunninga

    Muthafuckin beautiful

  12. Zach Goldberg

    Raps dictionary

  13. Gavin Knight Jackson

    I'm impressed by his production. This beat is fire

  14. Gavin Knight Jackson

    Is that Onry Ozzborn? Lol

  15. Gavin Knight Jackson

    Song is too good

  16. Jason Sanchez

    Fuck yeah!!

  17. tyguy2936

    I never noticed onry until I started listening to all of Aes' collabs

  18. POOLBOY Willis

    I've never played an ALBUM this often and this frequently besides way back when I discovered Frank Zappa....

  19. imback bitch

    ibogaine cures opiate addiction

  20. Kevin Wright

    This was so good

  21. Teresa L

    I can't take this album out of the CD player. Contemplating buying the vinyl cause it's just that dope.

  22. Steph T

    hello hello hello hello

  23. Matthew Hiltner

    I just love how all of these are done live. Something so special and unique! Thanks Aes!

  24. OPTIK

    can't be touched. literally the greatest writer in the game.

  25. Kyle Vickery

    How the fuck dose he do this!!!!! The rhymes the videos the hands it's all so perfect!!!!

  26. Steph T

    I'd live in a barn with you Aesop!!

  27. Andrew Freeman

    Why he always so Macabre??

  28. Mr Niceguy

    The concept of a live music video is dope! Does anyone else even do this? Aesop is definitely one of the best writers in any genre. All his shit is beyond!

  29. Reverend Ghoul

    Shouts out Onry and Grayskul.

  30. Thomas Jefferson

    holy fuck thats legit. aesop at the top of his game with this album!

  31. William Karson

    No stairways into heavin u can step into the esher

  32. Davephatbuds

    Is that Abilities on the kit?

  33. mc5or6

    Holy carp! Too good.

  34. James Herlitz

    So many high pitched noises😂

  35. face

    In Chicago when he did this he fucked up coming in on the 3rd verse and felt so bad and after acknowledging it and stopping the music and laughing he came back in no music or nothing and made it so much more intense than it ever could have felt then the drums kicked in with a nice roll and the beat just started knocking again oh my god he is such a compelling performer. His one mistake ended up being the most heart felt part of the show and that is fucking hard to do. He is truly something else.

  36. LegitMusic

    I wasn't a fan of this artist when I first discovered him. To me it seemed Aesop put random words together and had no true message for any one of his songs. Although I've since changed my mind and now I appreciate Aesop as an artist. His music is definitely not for the casual listener. It often takes 3-4 listens to begin to piece together the message of one of his songs, and It's oddly very satisfying when you do. It's almost like putting together a puzzler

  37. Courtney Mortenson

    I have never found a more positive comment history! We all love you Ian, please keep on keeping on with this shit!

  38. Owen P

    What a neat guy!

  39. T Minus 1

  70. Matt Smith 612

    Ta dota da this is how we level up.

  71. euphoricrhythm

    Elon Musk is planning to colonize mars. You will have your chance to go!

  72. Benjamin Miller

    what do you think he means by "waiting for your condition to stabilize?"

    DarkKai 33

    Benjamin Miller I think he's talking in the second person about himself, he does that a lot (Shrunk for example), taking the previous line into context, he's putting on yoga (yoga balances his physical state, a metaphor for his emotional state), he's whistling (making music) while he's stabilising his emotional state since he's secluded himself.

  73. Hobo Tim

    Heard this and now i have to listen to the whole album.







    I'm not complaining.

    Sweggy Pete

    Coodles Parks yes

  74. Fredo Mafia 300

    Is there a song by rock with like a Chicago drill beat 😕

  75. Mr Ham Hock

    Mulling over Chuck D telling me, "Diversify"
    I'm at the Supercuts soupin' up the wardrobe
    Forecast looking like Ganesh on four phones
    "Hello, hello, hello, hello" ........................ :)

  76. MottaFjotta

    reminds me a lot of MF Doom

    TheCondorjc

    xD lolololol

    Where's the logic in that, oh sweet jeezus, Subroc is rolling in his grave

    MottaFjotta

    he has a similar flow and the beat sounds like a typical doom-beat

    TheCondorjc

    @MottaFjotta "similar flow" xD lmFao
    please define flow, their flows, and state their similarity

  77. Oscar Bowser

    Thank you for your music!

  78. SirSponge941

    the audio quality is dirt garbage even on the highest setting. at least on my phones :/

  79. AtmosOner

    Big Aes the Boss

  80. Keith Rose

    this why Aes is the greatest of all time

  81. Colliding With Mars

    oh hey this was actually live damn aes

  82. The Llama

    This and Tuff were 2 of my favorite songs to hear him perform when I saw him in concert. Both those songs have filthy instrumentals and he rhymes to them so fucking well.

  83. Old Man Khaki

    that second verse was the dopest shit ever! He just goes off and off and off.

  84. John Dee

    Tiger Balm on the forehead is one of the most effective methods to stimulate the pineal gland aka the third eye aka the lazy eye. Aleve is good for headaches since a newly awakened pineal gland causes incredible headaches for a couple days. I knew all this, so consider my reaction when I heard "mentholated tiger balm, aleve with the arthritis cap." Screaming and jumping up and down like a fuckin imbecile. Fucking love this man. The psyche is indeed a prism.

  85. brennan eaton

    Only Aesop videos are 90% comments that are lyrics..... He is just pure joy to listen to.

  86. alex erickson

    god the scratching in this is flawless as fuck

  87. O-Kay

    "Sometimes I feel my heart putrefying inside my body
    From diary of dark to piety in the Ponzi
    On my better days they mingle and walk off into the poppy
    On my worst, the work is overshadowed by the monte
    Had to buy some clothes that fit me
    And pretend I like agave
    With a promise to his congress not to compromise the motley"
