    Post your favorite Atmosphere lyrics.


    (One Of A Kind)
    It goes
    One little, two little, three little indie rap
    Headphones, backpack, watch em all piggyback
    Switch up my style, they all complain, but see
    Whick kids next year sound the same as me..."

    (Trying To Find A Balance
    Now all my friends are famous
    It's either one thing or another
    They all don't know what my name is
    Probably know both of my brothers
    One is a hard working savior
    The other is a hard working soldier
    I'm just a next door neighbor
    Working hard to try and stay sober
    You wait for the car at the corner
    Pretend like you know what the pot it
    Wont quit till I hit California
    And make you my Golden State goddess.

    (From God Loves Ugly)
    So give me some light, a little love and some liquid
    I'ma creep through the night
    And put a plug in the spicket
    And when the water grows
    And the dam starts to overflow
    I'll float atop the flood, holding on to my ugly

    (From If I Was Santa Clause)
    And if I was a driver
    I'd keep my headlights on
    To see the difference between right and wrong
    I'd wear my seatbelt even when I'm in park
    Cause I don't trust the other fools that cruise through these parts

    And if I was an honest man
    I would stop writing songs
    I'd break for a nervous breakdown for breakfast
    Tell everyone I knew to stay away from making music
    It ain't nothing but a confusing mess (confusing mess)
    And if I was you, I wouldn't hear a word I said
    Wouldn't trust nothing to start it up inside my head
    I'd make a conscious effort to live instead
    Of trying to kill the monsters that reside underneath the bed

    And if I did have a choice
    I'd never want to live forever
    Just let me have a voice so I can make my points
    I can't imagine running a race with no finish line
    Just let me keep my pace and make to most of my time
    I love giving but I'm bad at receiving
    The truth is, I'd prefer to be the one bleeding
    But I'm a paranoid that stays between play and work
    Cautious and aware, 'cause I'm afraid of being hurt
    Which brings me to the issue
    And that would be this:
    How often must I ask myself why I exist?
    I feel like a freak, this world is a circus
    Just trying to find myself as well as my purpose

    (From Vampires)
    But all I want is a little more security
    A little more safety, a lot less uncertainty

    (From Bleed Slow)
    Death is the cousin of sleep
    Just close your eyes count sheep and breathe deep
    Think about the sound of relief that surrounds you
    You were already gone before I found you

  • (From Little Man)
    Sometimes the weeks fly a little too fast
    And sometimes I go to sleep a little too trashed
    Other times I'm not sittin' on enough cash
    And other times today feels too much like the past

    Your communication tactics are fucked up! Don't blame me. I had nothing to do with it.
  • (from lift her pull her)
    Now how am I to know you like the way I laugh
    I can't read the map, no ones ever seen the path?
    The one you take a bath with is the same on the freeze your path
    Oh you going out? what time you goin be back?

    ( from Bird Sings Why The Caged I Knows)
    Its the bird, it must have been the bird. Disguting critter it must, we should've known better than to trust this disease infested ball of lust and carnation, piece of garbage with wings and she has the guts to sing. Get the bird, catch her, shot her, i dont care, get the bird, bring down to the ground from out the air.

  • Pretty much all the lyrics from Multiples (2)

    i love the way it goes from A-Z

  • two parts from lovelife...

    (start)
    individually wrapped, placed in neat little rows
    becoming a piece, of everything that grows
    some numbers, a name
    to indicate you played the game
    came empty-handed, and left the same
    a soul is a soul, and a shell is a shell
    the border in between is full of everything you felt

    and...

    when the soul begins to reap
    i think she'll know me from the sleep
    i keep caught in the corner of my bloodshot eyes
    and if she has the nerve to let me dump a couple last words
    im gonna turn to the earth and scream
    love your life


    this is my favorite song of all time

    Blamegame:
    With the shoelaces tied, too wasted to drive
    Either way I've arrived to bless this place with my vibe
    Yeah right, my vibe ain't even cool
    I sit in the corner and drink until I slur and drool
    The t-shirt says shoot pool, not people

    National Disgrace:
    Grab the tree by the limb and shook it
    Like, "Have you seen my self esteem, where the hell'd you put it?"
    Oh wait, never mind, I found it in a bottle
    Drunk at the Troubadour talking to a model

    One Of A Kind:
    The same shit yesterday was like today
    Only difference is I trust even less of what you say
    But all in all I still make the noise, I still break the toys, I still hate your voice
    I still say fuck a major label till it limps,
    Put your deal up our table and we'll show you who’s the pimp.

    kill time not life shoot pool not people

  • Saves The Day

    The truth can be pain, and I hate to do it
    Either face the music, or get away from me stupid
    Super glue it down, now it better not move
    See I'm not the best, but I'm in the top two



    Reflections
    I would post this entire song, but I'll settle for a selection.

    Do you really think you really wanna get to know me better
    Don't you see the drama
    Don't you feel the pressure
    Don't get me wrong it would be my pleasure
    To sing a song that could remove your shoes and your sweater

    Always Coming Back Home To You

    Mosey down the road thinkin' bout the old
    I use to roam this zone with two feet of snow
    Right here, this use to be a record shop
    I've gotten love, I've gotten drunk, I've gotten beat up in that parking lot
    I've had my lake street pride for three decades
    These alleyways, and these streetlights have seen my best days
    Before I was a germ learnin how to misbehave,
    All the way to the grave, south side is my resting place

    "Sometimes you gotta let those hard to reach chips go" - Dante, Clerks
  • one of a kind

    I still say fuck a major label till it limps,
    Put your deal up our table and we'll show you who’s the pimp.

    had so much passion and now signed onto fucking epitaph?

  • Seven's Travels Hidden Track "Shh..."

    The complete hidden track on Seven's Travels commonly referred to as "Shh..."

    It’s such a pleasure to come home, because ahh
    I have a very special love for this city

    (Well alright, well okay 3x)
    (Well alright, well alright, well alright)

    I wanted to make a song about where I’m from
    You know big up, my hometown, my territory, my state
    But, I couldn’t figure out much to brag about
    Well, Prince lives here, we’ve got 10,000 lakes
    But wait, the women are beautiful, to me they are
    And we’re not infested with pretentious movie stars
    Then it hit me, Minnesota is dope
    If only simply for not what we have, but what we don’t
    It’s all fair, it ain’t out there, it’s in there
    It’s in the mirror behind the breast, under the hair

    “Follow the dream” doesn’t mean leave the love
    Roam if you must, but come home when you’ve seen enough
    I love New York and Cali, but I ain’t moving
    Too overpopulated, saturated with humans
    And I’m not big on rappers, actors, or models
    If I had to dip I’d probably skip to Chicago

    None of this, this or this, no one, no where
    Like damn I’m from Minnesota, land of the cold air
    Too many mosquitoes and a fair share of egos
    But, like my man Sabby says,
    “That’s where my mommy stays”

    So, if the people laugh and giggle when you tell them where you live
    Say “Shhh!”Say “Shhh!”
    And, if you know this is where you want to raise your kids
    Say “Shhh!” Say “Shhh!”
    If you’re from the Midwest, and it doesn’t matter where
    Say “Shhh!” Say “Shhh!”
    If you can drink tap water and breathe the air
    Say “Shhh!” Say “Shhh!”

    Got trees and vegetation in the city I stay
    The rent’s in the mail, and I can always find a parking space
    The women outnumber the men two to one
    Got parks and zoos, and things to do with my son
    The night life ain’t all that, but that’s okay
    I don’t need to be distracted by the devil every day
    And the jobs ain’t really too hard to find
    In fact, you could have mine if you knew how to rhyme

    This is for everyone around the planet
    That wishes they were from somewhere
    Other than were they’re standing
    Don’t take it for granted
    Instead take a look around
    Quit complaining and build something on that ground
    Plant something on that ground
    Dance and sleep on that ground
    Get on your hands and knees and watch the ants walk around the ground
    Make a family, make magic, make a mess
    Take the stress, feel your motivation, and build your nest

    It sucks that you think where I’m from is whack
    But as long as that’s enough to keep your ass from coming back
    And, with a smile and a hint of sarcasm he said,
    “I beg your pardon, but this is my secret garden”

    (Alright, well okay, well alright, well okay)
    (In the land of ice and snow 3x)
    (Minneapolis, Minneapolis, Minneapolis)

    So, if the people laugh and giggle when you tell them where you live
    Say “Shhh!”Say “Shhh!”
    If you know this is where you want to raise your kids
    Say “Shhh!” Say “Shhh!”
    If you’re from the Midwest, and it doesn’t matter where
    Say “Shhh!” Say “Shhh!”
    If you can drink tap water and breathe the air
    Say “Shhh!” Say “Shhh!”
    If the playground is clear of stems and syringes
    Say “Shhh!”Say “Shhh!”
    If there’s only one store in your town that sells 12 inches
    Say “Shhh!”Say “Shhh!”
    If no one in your crew walks around with a gun
    Say “Shhh!”Say “Shhh!”
    And, if you ain’t gonna leave ‘cause this is where you’re from
    Say “Shhh!”Say “Shhh!”

  • I love Multiples and God Loves Ugly but for me its One Of A Kind:

    [Slug talking to crowd]
    I'm different because I respect my audience and I don't yell at them...
    And I'm special because I respect my audience... (Guy in crowd: YA!)
    SHUT THE FUCK UP!

    [Slug]
    The way she listen to what the MC said
    She might as well plug the RCA cords into her head
    Taking that into consideration, at the center of creation
    Cats still criticize my frustration raps
    Well off he goes, come and cop some flows
    Cross your toes in hopes that I don't climb you like an obstacle
    Mission Impossible, fishin' in the kitchen sink
    Ya'll'll fall for anything so what you think this kid'll bring?
    Poker face, let me hold my place, the name's sake is Slug
    But you? You can call me Stroker Ace.
    Open invitation to catch today's ejaculation
    All across the front of your pretty little apron (Bitch)
    This goes to those that wanna mouthful of Sean's load
    Thanks for startin' now you're barkin' down the wrong road
    Sacrifice plays a part in grabbin' mics from now till the afterlife
    I'll continue, pass(ion) it like I love this fuckin' whore with all my heart
    And ain't nobody gonna stop me from doin' my part
    It gave me life, it saved me life, it raised me right
    So slideshow decide (slide shoulder side), and please hand over that mic

    [Chorus x2]
    Who am I? [2nd: What is this?]
    One of a kind
    Send em' one at time
    You're all the same
    Only separate by kick snares and names
    Some of ya'll even share the same names
    So fuck you and your lies baby show no shame

    [Slug]
    So point a finger at the sucker that's havin' a good summer
    Ain't got no bread, no weed, no Wonder
    But I got the phone number to this weakness I know
    Who can put me back together, make me feel whole
    So take me apart, try to break me down
    And spend all you got just to hate the clown
    You can fake the frown, imitate the sound
    Underworld, worldwide, wide world of underground
    It goes one little, two little, three little indie rap
    Headphones, backpack, watch em' all piggy back
    Switch up my styles, they all complain but see
    Which kids next year sound the same as me!
    The same shit, yesterday was like today
    Only difference is I trust even less of what you say
    But all in all, I still make the noise
    I still break the toys, I still hate your voice
    I still say, "Fuck a major label till it limps!"
    Put your deal upon our table and we'll show you who's the pimp
    There is no sympathy for the careless
    Fuck the extra credit, and fuck the demerits
    Class dismissed

    [Chorus x2]
    One of a kind
    Send em' one at time
    You're all the same
    Only separate by kick snares and names
    Some of ya'll even share the same names
    So fuck you and your lies baby show no shame
    What is this?

    Who am I? One of a kind, one at a time...
    So fuck you and your lies baby show no shame

    I like in my continental sometimes

    Although it's hard to decide ;)

    T-t-t-t-t-t-teacher, teacher, how can I learn patience?
    Planted in the middle and outside of your nation
    Take the care to build a familiar foundation
    Speak to the youth that keep the truth sacred
    Free the, free the good inside your heart
    Your neighborhood, it needs you to travel with your art
    From New York to Cali, some day they'll all know
    Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Chicago
    Now I've come a long way from the younger days
    When I used to look up curse words in my dictionary
    If life's a game, gotta choose a side to play
    If I gotta pick a position I'ma pick missionary

    THE OUTERNET.

    as an mc, i write rhyme to distribute the fun times.
    as a lyricist, i promise to heat up your brain like sunshine.
    as an mc, my goal is to make the whole show dope.
    as a lyricist, i wanna spit that shit that you can quote.
    as an mc, i provoke my producer, to stroke his spirits.
    so a lyricist, i can't be chocking on my lyrics.
    as an mc, i know the key is originality.
    and as lyricist, i command of the mc's to respect me.
    that it, respect, thats all,
    in fact the same respect i offer to you and you crew after you all rip a set.
    im just a man but i roll with others.
    and we've got this plan, to let the voices span across the tortured land.
    education starts at home, 612
    from there we roam to headphones coming soon to your war zone.


    you damn well know the lyrics.

    moving at the speed of life ft aesop.

    One seed with grow our belief
    But if we agreed, no one would bleed.
    Can't lose the need to struggle,
    Just another piece of the puzzle, fuck you!
    Must do, what i think is best for whom
    Throws they hands in the air tryin to catch the truth
    Set the preferences on burn
    Cause its your world but your world dont turn!

    the lyrics are epic. the way they fit with the beat is epic. this song is epic.

    uhhuh
  • sooo many memorable ones... i always found lovelife to be particularly beautiful.

    "and when the soul begins to reap
    i think she'll know me from the sleep
    i keep caught in the corner of my blood shot eye
    and if she has the nerve to let me dump a couple last words,
    ima turn to the earth and scream 'love your life'

    how many times must you prove you're an angel,
    how many more demons do you have to strangle?
    how much longer must you remain in this dream before i finally figure out if you're insane or a genius?"

    and one that makes me smile every time from my songs:

    "my life ain't as cool as your life, and more than likely i'll be stabbed in my sleep by your wife"

  • Lucy Ford

    They're All Gonna Laugh at You

    summer song

    I can just relate to this verse so much. ya feel me?

    Damn I wish that she was mine but time and time over the discretion
    On my right shoulder whispers to my ear
    Advising me to admire from way over here, play the rear
    And struggle for the view to clear
    It's been 2 years and quite a few beers
    Too many loose tears and a few souveniers
    And if she only knew, how long I've waited for her
    How her smiles enough to make my winter warmer
    If she knew the way she walks could take away my storm
    She'd probably call the cops and get a restraining order
    As much as I hate myself, I hate you more
    But I still smile when you come through that door
    And as much as I hate my life, I hate yours too
    Just can't seem to teach myself to ignore you
    This is for the ladies, not every lady
    Just the ones that drive me crazy, the ones that scream SAVE ME
    I wanna thank y'all for everything you gave me
    Now lean in and taste me

    Hip Hop isn't dead..she's buried alive!
  • My Fav Atmosphere Song

    Modern Man's Hussle

    "The first time I met the devil was at a motel 6. She left hell to spend her weekends on earth just for kicks. Sexy little bitch, shorter then expected. About five-foot five big an' thick in the breast and thighs. Beautiful, dark eyes a strong stare large lips, soft hands and long hair. I said Ill make you smile for the simple fact Im good at it, I'l make you smile just so I can sit and look at it"

  • Pour me another

    All she wanted was a little bit of solid
    Feels like love, it doesn't matter what you call it
    Heal those cuts or hide em underneath the polish
    Break another promise and take me as a hostage
    Hold your job down and let the zombies crowd around
    Thankin' mommy's god that it's a cop's town
    Keep it safe for me while I chase a fantasy
    Swervin through the galaxy, searchin for a family
    Happily surrounded by planets and stars
    She was stuck uptown while you was landin on mars.

  • Smart went crazy

    smart went nuts and rode a unicorn through the storm

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    And nobody knows where you'll end up
    Only guarantee in life is death or a headfuck
    Yea, you thought it was a set up, well guess what
    Now you can catch up with the rest of my "Best Of"
    I got a few blocks left before I reach my destionation
    And retrieve my breath
    And god blessed every step I stole
    Just to let me know, she wouldn't ever let me go

  • Music box

    cant believe no one's said this already but this is DEFINITELY my favorite... from the song "In her music box"

    "Escape is a paradox because the childhood is locked in that music box"

  • switch up my styles, they all complain but see
    which kids next year sound the same as me
    the same shit, yesterday was like today
    only difference is i trust even less of what you say
    one of a kind

    "follow the dream" doesn't mean leave the love
    roam if you must, but come home when you've seen enough
    say shhh

    do you call yourself a patient or a junkie?
    the only thing that separates is who takes your money
    panic attack

    even though he was too young to hunt and gather
    hungry puppy had to learn how to front and swagger
    me

    she still makes time to hate me
    but basically i'm overbooked - no emotional vacancy
    complacency seems so simple, like
    "fuck it, let me the one you fight and call mister right"
    say hey there

    sometimes you make me feel like such a prick
    that even i'm convinced that i'm the one who's sick
    you can fuss and bitch, you can cut your wrist
    or you can choke on that blood from the tongue you've bit
    and when you acted up, best believe i blessed you back
    i've got a fucking fan base that can attest to that
    i'm returning this bleeding hearts club membership card
    'cause i want no motherfucking part of it
    say hey there

    the untrained eye thinks she's got it all together
    but the first time i seen her smile, i knew better
    keep steppin'

    we don't know your name but everybody knows your mad face
    ha, this one is about alcohol too

    thinking 'bout life and how it tastes like garbage
    it's time to get gone, away from this town
    seems still wants to blame her surroundings
    got a grudge and a pocket of neurotic love
    played a perfect game but forgot what the object was
    where's the book that the answers are sketched in?
    life lessons, all types of questions
    they always know

    "yo man, how you doin', where you been?"
    just makin' it cool to rap about love again
    not the hippie stuff, i'm talkin' 'bout that bitch that gets you nuts
    ("did he say bitch?")
    yo i'm sorry, don't tell my baby's mommy
    god loves ugly

    i'm a slow typer, a so-so writer
    been the shit ever since i was an infant in diapers
    and i'ma be dope all the way to the end
    from the cradle to the grave
    the pampers to the depends
    get enough love, got enough friends
    but on a regular basis, it's safe to say i've got the bends
    and i didn't mean to ignore that vibe you sent
    i guess my mind was probably on my rent
    give me

    still as lonely as the number one
    'cause you only love someone so you have someone to run from
    musical chairs

    please put your shoes on and step into that warm weather
    go get yourself a more better forever
    the last to say

    i watch the way you try to keep your mom happy
    daddy learned that from you
    you're supposed to learn that from daddy
    i can't teach much when it comes to women
    i drive safe and slow but don't know nothing 'bout the engine
    little man

    i know there's gotta be something kickin' your bruises
    how's the love? how's the music? how's the self-abusiveness?
    little man

    these headphones keep me from rememberin'
    also guilty of letting me not forget
    a song about a friend

    i thought it was supposed to get easier when you worked harder
    a song about a friend

    you played your cards, had to stand strong
    but it ain't that hard to sing a sad song
    we all got scars and broken parts
    but most of the marks stay close to my heart
    if you can save me now
