The Curse of Hypervigilance (In Politics, Romance & Cohabitation)

from by Open Mike Eagle & Paul White

lyrics

He came through town in an old jeep, looking like 1997
Won a few hearts with a bold speech
Talking ‘bout “lets go find the weapons”
talking ‘bout “let’s be good again”
And looking like all niggas ever wanted
Oh, big time bank hank wins again
get a new nameplate, but they own the office
Feels so good when we go to auction
Four year lease with a low deposit
Get a hundred loans so you can go to college
Your diploma’s rolled into a Polish sausage
Umpteenth time we believed the theater
Wished on a piece of meteor
Why? the greediest men they need a disguise
But heres a news flash: the media lies
Dang

I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all
shoulda known, shoulda known
shoulda known, shoulda known

How long was you pent up?
Your little pinch of defense sucked
You was an early bird to the 33rd
But at certain words you tensed up
And I know cause I’m watching too close
Like a type-2 dude with food with mad glucose
Hark who goes there I’m Centurion
I’ve been curious since my cesarian section
I let shit look mysterious
inside quakes coulda shook the pyramids
searchin between all the cushioned areas
I warned you I wish you took me serious
Deleterious and dropping facts and got co-conspirators
so watch your back
and I’m paranoid so you could not relax
And I never holler so don’t holler back, naw

I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all
shoulda known, shoulda known
shoulda known, shoulda known

You put some shit in my mashed potatoes
the list of suspects is just you
you put on a scratch on my Masekela
put a tiny rock in my left shoe
put smelly shit on my car keys
sticky shit in my Arizona
shrunk my shirt so the arms squeeze
hid my miniature Testsrossa

You put some shit in my mashed potatoes
the list of suspects is just you
you put on a scratch on my Masekela
put a tiny rock in my left shoe
put smelly shit on my car keys
sticky shit in my Arizona
shrunk my shirt so the arms squeeze
hid my miniature Testarossa
