Atmosphere - Bde Maka Ska Lyrics

I'm at the bottom of...
Already knew I was...
I'm at the bottom of...
Already knew I was...

I'm lookin' at that lake like I'm waitin' to break, into ya traffic
Yeah, that's overly dramatic
But it only takes one bad trip to leave ya holier than magic
I'm all alone I feel it all in my bones
It's probably why I'm not goin' home
I'm sittin' in the passenger seat of my own car, I dunno where my keys are
Sippin' on a warm lone star
And the sky don't sponsor my house
That's why I pay no mind to what comes outta they mouth
I stop pretending like I knew what to do
And let the universe push the needle into the groove
It's no substitute for the love of the truth
So who the fuck am I to be the judge for you (huh)
I fall back and let the chips descend
Go ahead, call me back when you miss your friends
And maybe later we can talk about the weather
Pick a day and we can try to get together
Bring along whatever tool you use to measure how the temperature reacts to your temper
And lick a shot for the messenger
It's not a mess if ya
Control the stress (never let it get the best of ya)
Shit, it's easier said than done
If we can't get free, might as well get dumb
Just keep it rollin', and document the whole thing
As if it ain't too late, already seen where it's go-in'
I shape shift to make it fit in any opening
The halo's gonna stay debatable until I grow some wings
You're not supposed to need a boulevard of broken dreams
To build the wheel to fill ya bag up with some groceries
I want that middle of the lake serenity
It's why I stay alive inside your energy

Already knew I was a thief
Before I threw away the keys
They at the bottom of the lake
Serenity (even when I die I'm still alive)
I'm at the bottom of the...

  1. Dustin Browning

    love all my atomosphere fans and homies peace for everybody✌

  2. Marv V

    I think this is one of the best album they have made in a while good job fellas.....

  3. Sepiso LaTanya-Marie Ililonga

    Dear Slug, Ant, Keezy, Lioness, and Darling Nikki... I attended "your" show in Nashville Tennessee on 1-29-2020 at the Cowan. It was the very first concert that i ever paid money to attend and i am 48 years old. I have been attending concerts since conception as my own parents are musicians. I have some constructive criticism to offer if there is an appropriate place to express such OPINIONS. I said i wasnt going to attend the show but i changed my mind since the 2019 show was scheduled on my birthday and i didnt attend that due to the fact that i moved to a new place. The concert at The Cowan was the first concert i had atteneded in almost twenty years by the way. Sincerily some ordinary person that likes hip hop named Sepiso LaTanya-Marie Ililonga a.k.a. Death, or Pepsi, or Soda, or (well i'll not reveal the rest of my psuedonymns just in case....)

  9. andrew foster

    This reminds of back in the day, jamming to Lucy Ford, or God Loves Ugly... back to to those ridiculous flows.
    “ .....stop pretending like I knew what to do, and let the universe push the needle into the groove, it’s no substitute for the love of the truth, so who the fuck am I to be a judge for you, huh?”

    Bootie my keister

  12. MassiveGat

    Atmosphere. The only duo that in nearly 25 years of creating music, has never once disappointed. Seriously, it's baffling. Most artists at this age would be washed up and out of ideas, Atmosphere sounds as good as ever

  13. Von Diddle

    I can’t wait to see them in Chicago on the 14th of January, 2020!!!!

  14. Melissa Rice

    Those 93 people that disliked this video have a questionable taste in music🤫

    Silky smoothie.

  86. Blah Blah

    I remember when my sister showed me this guy back in 2000 back when napster and kazaa and bear shear were around were around

  87. Florida Man

    Does anyone know if Slug has ever spoke on what inspired some of his music? In particular I would love to know about the woman with tattooed hands and if I was Santa Claus.
    Those 2 mean so much to me. They have their own meaning for me, but I would love to know how he came up with such poetry.

  88. Rod Bender

    Love atmosphere and they embrace MN

  89. International Merchant Of Hate

    ...and rhymesayers has officially sold out to leftist identity politics.

    Slug, you do know ITS OK TO BE WHITE don’t you? You don’t have to grovel like a bitch on her knees before these fascists.

    won’t be a next time for me, the ONLY member of rhymesayers I’m NOT boycotting is EYEDEA whom i hope is as disgusted with your virtue signaling as i am.

    John C Calhoun was NEVER the only American proponent of slavery, and changing the name of the lake doesn’t change history, it just allows the weak minded motherfuckers to forget that bad things happen, and get weaker to the point where WORDS themselves are considered an assault?

    You volunteered to censor yourself this time slug AND IT WAS A GRAVE MISTAKE, because when you WAKE UP, and want to tell someone about it you’ll be forced to remain silent.

    Giving your rights away just let’s them take the rest when it’s convenient for them.

    Slug, you have been indoctrinated into being a useful idiot for the left, your ideological subversion is complete and only a crisis can wake you from your self imposed ignorance.

  90. Derrik Mental

    Always a beast.🔥👊💀✨

    "You're not supposed to need a boulevard OR broken dreams,
    To build the will to fill your bags up with some groceries"


  92. Safety Dance

    1:02 "im sitting in the passenger seat of my own car, i don't know where my keys are" this is how i've felt for the last five years going through life, watching myself do things like going to work etc but having no control.

  93. Nah mine's Clarence

    Is it just me? Anyone else writing 16 to 80 bars after watching one of these new videos? Virgo got me gooooood! Ruined my whole morning, I got shit to do man...

  94. gmunay420

    can I use this in a youtube video?


    I know I'm already going to get 1 copyright strike but its for fun
