It's foot before foot before footing my footsteps/ walk this earth absorb what I haven't took yet/ welcome to savage avalon/ let the ballads balance pawns with the wildlife/ razor fangs for your comedy/ acknowledge dreams in your Shiva kicks/ deceiving kids who see the sticks for the forest/ can't believe this shit/ deity sangria mix with santoria trance breathing a sativa fix until you can't perceive the trends/ Who's clocking out?/ these doppler optics stay focused on the counters down/ not the clown cadillacs/ cattle brand deterrents are worthless if they strike first/ rubber necking turning warheads tongue in cheek in a blind eye sweating nervous/ pass the buck to the summers heat in a refined smile/ some are vegged and some are meat/ it all depends on the calibration of your cadence/ are your lumber creeks dumb in peace or running free/
Life's a beach, but I'm sitting cesspool side/ testing a fools lies through an electric cute smile/ on my 60 second chess move grind/ pawn at the mercy of the kingdom drawn to tip the king and call it a day/ but there's still some brontosaurus in the tank/ no/ there's still some storage in the back/ no/ there's still some stories you can act/ no/ you can't encourage the crash test dummy to rock a seat belt when he feels he's deserving the crash/ betting stakes when the levee breaks the surface surpasses nostrils/ eyes closed ready to accept his fate/ nothing but buttered bread and lead on his breakfast plate/ still tired from butting heads on his date with destiny/ a five star hells kitchen disaster recipe/ with a dash of respect and the rest is beef/ these nightmares can make a mess of dreams/ so we shed the sheets/ and find it best to never sleep/ keep running.

Hella Personal, regardless of your experience, there are a multitude of tracks that speaks both generally and specifically to the human experience.
Writ large, it's a post-modern microcosm of being human.
Writ small, it's a vibe tmomonet
idk, the whole album I guess...? As a white man just the whole thing... I feel like everything keeps making me want to say something and also shut up at the same time... I just... don't know... I love OME and everyone else. I wish life wasn't so hard for everyone involved Bingo Clamshell
