lyrics

sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up
sticks and stones that get thrown
at these stick up kids just kids
you know these kids can grow
pundits denying them this
so we pick up sticks for stickup kids
sticks we pick up sticks we pick up sticks
and stones that get thrown at these stickup kids
just kids you know these kids can’t grow
without sunlight and grit
so for stick up kids we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up sticks
we pick up sticks
sticks we pickup sticks

Gatsby
seven headed dragon ashy
wake up out of casio
carry pins by the gallon though
little mario tortoise shells spectacles
and monacles
diamond fitted
spinning from ruby necklaces
high polish
I aint gotta wallet
just paperclips and newspaper clippings
suggestions
new papers
missions
overtaken the district
far from pensive
emotionally unstable
when looking from grave to cradle
b boy in me, head spin like a dradel
tongue moves
the simplest sentences
past the nimblest premises
gods officiate the remnants
for the god divines the way the spine is crooked
and hookers need a tenement after sunday supper
out on 25th part the lips
force fed monogamy since bible verses
preface place settings
silver spoon, table mahogany
trouble new morse code
tap tip toe by proxy
oxycontin levels maximized my runners high
honest why
no simple way around this elevation
cliff running for young son darting
out from under tow
bury my opponents in a wave of exhalation
ten ton flow American Blue Beard and Thunder Crow
too much for these young minds to handle
dismantle candles and start a circle wax around the artist

sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up
sticks and stones that get thrown
at these stick up kids just kids
you know these kids can grow
pundits denying them this
so we pick up sticks for stickup kids
sticks we pick up sticks we pick up sticks
and stones that get thrown at these stickup kids
just kids you know these kids can’t grow
without sunlight and grit
so for stick up kids we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up sticks
we pick up sticks
sticks we pickup sticks

I’m in an MJ jacket with 11 gold buttons
trying to tell you what to do
when I never know nothin’
Its a secret we’re all damn desperate for
feel it in the wet grass with lungs full of petrichor
Whats a method?
Fuck its a suggestion
Look at the assumptions that snuck into the questions
I’m grown, my dinner’s vanilla cones,
skeleton in closet’s big thick gorilla bones
and everything’s encrusted
like jewelry or better yet chicken breast
quick, pick: oral or written test
Which picked florals for vision quest
a little warm depth from Cassandra
accompabying checks from a sponsor
I’ll text you a mantra
Inhale til your chest is enlarged on your exhale
say Jeff you’re a monster
I’m vexed at my own damn concerts
This mic’s dumb
I’m at the airport staring at my sliced thumb
Cookie face, about to go through security

sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up
sticks and stones that get thrown
at these stick up kids just kids
you know these kids can grow
pundits denying them this
so we pick up sticks for stickup kids
sticks we pick up sticks we pick up sticks
and stones that get thrown at these stickup kids
just kids you know these kids can’t grow
without sunlight and grit
so for stick up kids we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up
sticks we pick up sticks
sticks we pick up sticks
we pick up sticks
sticks we pickup sticks
