Aesop Rock - Troubled Waters Lyrics




You replicas overlooking the guidelines of acoustics
Miserable attempts result in miserable conclusions
Paragon pen dragon tactician on freeform
Then a comfortable silence try to combat cliques
That unexpected Sephotus cyclone shifts
Worked up you're shooken, jetted to the side
I stagger this vagabond wondering menstrual forms of phobia
Worst fear the terrace stricken muted
The roots of all evil I've rooted pinnacle
Poised with pride pouncing to break your stride, forsaken
Agony rides inside the heartache wretched condition
My intuition felt you slip up
You tripped alone what are you aiming for?
Or do you sus tries to classify your genus, distorted fetus
Evolve, type unsolved, you lack the malediction
Malleable martyrs get molded, then folded under pressure
Thou perceives a slaughter suspension
Bridge over troubled water drown, sound study intensive
My square drops two erasing lines like tetris
Relentless agent hush horrendous circles on my pavement
Two sticks to burn basics the lie adjacent to my placement
On the game board, lunge forward and wind-up impaled by the same sword
Choose your weapon, stains splattered upon your flag
Taturag shielding the exterior inferior
Stall face to face with a forms that force your downfall
Admittedly suspicious, a decadence, your network's on hiatus
Permanent, provoked and choked upon the potency
The parrow be the penetrating agent pierce the insides
Why the cold sweats at midnight? Why the dim light?
Why are we staring at a true from the inside?
Why the pen slide with vigor on a put down?
Like while I put my foot down stomp your city
A-E-S-O-P scoping through the bur, opening minds behind the smirks

I've seen misery, I've seen disgust dust ridden ruins
Iron clad oracle test three COM unit disperse silently
Over confidence leads to irony
Plot twist full hardy Icarus shifted in facets of my form
Forbidden aspects of the swarm a thorn upon your side
A storm upon the rise, Adam, I or crush come brush upon the red zone
Crook you're shook you started poorly
Your powers parted pace uncharted territory
Disoriented malicious god you'll burn your bridges
This craft requires first drafts
Graphs, gritted blueprints of nemesis perimeter
Hunting by night compute, twenty one mic salute
One life polluted, concerned muffle moans
From the nine rings of Donnie's hell burn you in your slumber
Sleepwalk then pulled under now
Whipping through the willows is the warden of this garden
Slipping through the silhouetted skylines Aesop sidewinds jaded
Don't wind up war painted into the jungle the solution's not intrusion
The starving institution broke your main frame
I pose the question, are these waiting games worth it or worthless?
While I comb the crowd for clues your nyebony hands be my purpose
Our planet is the pivotal point
In which this network slowly turns to filter kicks
We out-box the berserk bewildered by the wilderness
My clench is frantic clutch manners falling through underbrush
Touch fools that duel with a dominant
The evil-minded tried to triple six me but he missed me
Intervene; emcees appear as red blips on my color radar screen

  2. erik osborn

    Its ok....people who dont like aesoprock have a small vocab....Effem

  3. Filip Muresan

    lole. imagine thinking ure critique is relevant when u never dropped a verse remotely resembling this.
    "emcees appear as red blips on my color radar screen"

  4. Sunday Johnson

    love you aesop

  5. Mychael Ryan

    My favorite Aesop Rock song. 🖤🖤🖤

  6. ERIK 0zzy

    "They tried to triple six me but he missed me"....

  7. Stephan Hawkins

    Only In My Sweetest Dreams !!!

  8. J Paul G

    Over confidence, leads to Irony - Aesop

  9. Riley W

    Aesop is truly a genius and visionary with his knowledge of the english language, my mind is constantly being stretched and expanded by his story telling, I love it!

  10. logicone

    I hate now in days when someone asks who my favorite artist is and I say "Aesop Rock" they reply "oh yeah, i like asap rocky".. Not cause I have some huge problem with asap (he sucks in all honestly though), I just hate having to explain it every fucking time..

    znaptu0

    logicone that's [email protected] hilarious and disappointing at the same time

    Radical Cid

    i feel ya dude. tried getting all my friends on aesop and they were all like "asap?" few years later they tried showing me aesop like I hadn't tried introducing him to them first.

    Spocklee

    logicone tru

    Teletha 'Tessa' Testarossa

    Fuck me, it's even on the wiki. "Not to be confused with ASAP Rocky." Sad times...

    Jesse Rubens

    yeah its end times. that happened to me the other day with a human that by all other measurable observables was not a dumb numb ah um

  11. Scott Scheiten

    fluoride

  12. Dirty Bubble

    Ayyy Pennywise the Clown

  13. Kevin Ashforth

    Why the pen slide with vigor on a putdown...?

    LesterAmont

    trying to dead that in myself

  14. StitchiDGAF

    The fact that HBC423 thinks "Style" is objective, indicates he doesn't understand majority of what makes up Aesop Rock. HBC423, you are the Mr. Jones in 'The Ballad Of A Thin Man' that Bob Dylan talks about. I will let you know when the oxford dictionary redefines "wit" as being a loud and arrogant racist who complains too much about things they don't understand, whilst growing "monster trees"...
    (yeah, I don't know what the hell HBC423 thinks he is accomplishing either)

    Jymmy Kafka

    Ballad of a thin man, great reference!

  15. HBC423

    until he get some, he will still be without style or rhythm, he looks jewish so he will probably never be able to attain style or rhythm, just impossible, eat dicks

    TheNewLight

    HBC423 Man you're just mad cuz you're overlooking the guidelines of acoustics

    OFTHE QUANTOM

    TheNewLight hahahaha fuck yeah

    xXFetus.StomperXx

    OFTHE QUANTOM fucking idiot lmao

  16. Tripnotyst

    You sound like a broken record: "no style no rhythm". You said (again) what I quoted you saying. You're dumb as fuck. Kick Rocks

  17. Tripnotyst

    And this guy sells records and tours the world...you aren't shit. Saying Aesop Rock has no style is pretty fucking ignorant considering he has one of the most unique and recognizable sounds in hiphop. The dude is a poet and you obviously can't appreciate his take on RAP (rhythem and poetry), or more likely you don't understand it.

  18. HBC423

    nope, i came here because of the john lennon beat, and left because some yankee sounding white guy was rapping over it

  19. HBC423

    no im not slow, very quick witted, this shit sucks, no style no rhythm... must suck to be deaf... that nigga will never accomplish what i have, i grow monster trees anything in the chem family

  20. HBC423

    go listen to ugk, pimp c this ain't hip hop these country rap tunes

  21. HBC423

    when you hear pimp c on the radio, that's yall im from the old school, like mjg and ball, like devin the dude... shut the fuck up... bitch anything else said need to shut your damn mouth

  22. Madvillayo

    "real motherfuckers" "radio" lol

  23. HBC423

    like i listen to the radio... no i mean UGK, 8 ball MJG, Twista, Tupac, biggie, big l, big pun, field mob, manson family, Tela, No Limit, Ruff Ryders, Nas, Mr Lucci, Pastor Troy, Bone, Gangsta Blac, T-Rock, SPV click, Ghetto boys, goodie mob, boosie, Z-Ro... shit that real motherfuckers listen to not this bullshit white boy who can't even rhyme

  24. StateofMindJscj

    what is this "real rap" you speak of? the shit the radio told you was good?

  25. anomalyluna

    Okay. What the fuck does that have to do with anything? Nobody questioned your knowledge of "real rap", son. A little defensive, aren't we?

  26. HBC423

    this isn't the 80's

  27. HBC423

    i know real rap son

  28. anomalyluna

    For everyone into deep, meaningful hip hop, check out my song on my channel. Leave a comment, let me know what you think. If you're on this page, I'll assume you are smart enough to judge my work.

  29. anomalyluna

    Hahaha, one of the dumbest comments I've ever seen.

  30. HBC423

    all rap is a form of poetry, doesn't mean you can't have some style or rhyme better

  31. Comedian Mo Green

    hip hop in its purest form...POETRY!

  32. HBC423

    wiz khalifa killed this guy so did yoko ono... wiz straight styled on him, this cat has no flow, no rhythm, where's some style, or is this dude not from america, cuz wtf is this bullshit

  33. z bat

    is this seriously the first time ive heard this song? dammmnnnn amazing

  34. Dutchy Dank

    Still, was originally made by Hocus Pocus. XD

  35. Brandon A

    fuck nooo wiz became famous off of grinding his ass off bro.

  36. 100997 mk

    Beautiful boys yoko ono

  37. Jeremy P

    hahahahaha aesop better be makin more then mr khalifa

  38. Jacque Curriden

    the instrumental that made wiz khalifa famous

  39. Moe Munny

    Thanks for the apple juice line homie :)

  40. sohllis

    why isn't this song on itunes! ugh!

  41. CYPHZonAblunt

    No one cares. Both songs are good. Also talk producers here cause the rappers didn't make the beats!

  42. mist ermanic

    All im going to say is, this song makes fun of Wiz Khalifa, before Wiz Khalifa was even famous.
    And to all those on the mainstream rod and prodding at the assholes, just don't listen to Aesop, drink your apple juice.

  43. greatbrutus

    aesop rock cant do fun songs or club song that why no one knows him, slim shaddy will kill him easy, he got his stle from a rapper name thirstin howl) song called hard rock

    Geminisces

    Eminem and Aesop are apples and oranges. Also easy on the crack rock; Thirstin Howl and Aes sound nothing alike and the song 'Brooklyn Hard Rock' which also sounds nothing like Aes was recorded long before Howl's first shit was put out

  44. Noah Justice

    Only Aesop Rock would put out a diss song that's meta.

  45. Phil Ashio

    @xxthizz420xx Nah dude, this is his passion. It just wasn't his best cause MTV isn't used to playing anything incredible.

  46. futchofdeth666

    @xxthizz420xx No Way!, man never!!!!! That guys is light years ahead of his time not only with his abilities but with his music as well!! Watch the next album he drops is going to open a portal to an alternate realm/deminsion...

  47. xxthizz420xx

    LABOR DAYS N BEFORE IS FRESH, HES HONESTLY LOST HIS STYLE EVER SINCE HE WAS ON MTV WITH PIGS THOUGH

  48. Nick Bryant

    @HazedByPurple why the fuck would it matter the time when it was sampled?

  49. chase marcus

    @uselesswater Wiz khalifa ?

  50. Erick Franco

    early aesop rock is my favorite aesop rock.

  51. Rushgoon1

    Some deaf guy sent me this link.

  52. AM617

    gay khalifa coped this beat

  53. SprayCansAndJoints

    extra sick.. love this song

  54. K Hill on the Beat

    @JackSprattMusic his producer has the best ear for instrumentals not wiz himself

  55. brettmongoloid

    @fookii99 yea I totaly agree, but Im more of the opposite. I give wiz props for taking such an under-rated song/artist and bringing it to the masses. Wiz has more appeal than Aesop and thats just how it goes today. Yea I agree Wiz's lyrics are getting a bit stale, but using weed in his lyrics is whats gettin him recognized. But dont get me wrong I love Aesop he is a pioneer of underground hiphop and atleast Wiz recognizes that

  56. Nick Bryant

    @turdmaflurd beleive me bro im not the kid to say someone sucks because they are mainstream. wiz was pretty good at first but if you payed attention behind the generic beats you would know his lyrics suck fat dick now and he totally sold out. So when i'm listening to an aesop rock song with barely any recognition and i see a wiz song with 3 million views with the same instrumental, just generically sped up and more upbeat, ya its gonna fucking piss me off

  57. brettmongoloid

    @fookii99 woah woah mainstream tool? r u kidding me? so when a guy gets 1 successful song onto the radio he is considered mainstream. Man get the fuck out of here wiz has been in the game since 05 and is now finally getting recognized. Love all you "if its popular, it now sucks ass' types

  58. CarlosEnrique408

    @fookii99 ohh wiz khalifa thats right, i have that song. i forgot. he's aight, i like his beats and weed gimmick.

  59. CarlosEnrique408

    so dope i started spazzing out havin eargasms. no dislikes.. nice. and where is this melody from i think i heard it sampled in another song before

  60. domestic da diabolic

    man his alliteration is sick

  61. domestic da diabolic

    what do you think hes talking about

    Alejandro Sanchez

    When it comes to battle they'll be bloody water " troubled waters"
    Aesop's ability to make poetry into music. Can also be use letal weapon turning him into a spiritual serial killer

    Alejandro Sanchez

    Burning all evil

  62. domestic da diabolic

    @0YummyRadish0 i didnt even know that.

  63. Nick Bryant

    Such a dope song. This mainstream tool "whiz khalifa" stole the beat and threw in some shitty mainstream lyrics. so sad to see this with 5,000 views and "the statement" with 3 million

  64. De4dm1xR7

    fuccin sik yo
    word up to the true listeners out ther!
    361

  65. Nick Bryant

    Interveen, emcees appear as red blips on my color radar screen

  66. mahadabdi24

    wiz khalifa took this beat fliped it up. sampled this check it song called the statement.

  67. bevboyz

    sample - john lennon - beautiful boys

  68. GotAnEyedea

    @Pogneman yeah it is, its just at a different pace. how do you sample on somthing like that?

  69. GotAnEyedea

    who produced this?

    Anthony Bermudez

    GotAnEyedea blockhead

  70. Vincent Mata IV

    Wow this song is dope

  71. watchitlugnuts

  72. gmeyer024
