Verse Of The Day: Keep Off The Lawn

Artist: Aesop Rock
Album: None Shall Pass
Song: Keep Off the Lawn

Most copious
Rain soak the opiates
Notice how the phobias appropriately procreate
Woke up with a ghost farm focused on his groceries
When they aren't telling stories, they are multiplying grossly on the lawn
Let 'em loiter, never let 'em spawn
The apparitions have been drinking this water for too long
So when they gather by the birdbath in the morning he will tell 'em
“I mean no disrespect, but you have all outstayed your welcome.”
Interesting, in a sense..
Interrupt commiserating phantoms on your picket fence
How quickly they will lift their heads
And breathe an ultimatum like, “The dead don't argue.”
Said, "You're living by the bayonet, but how alive are you?"
Shit, 'A' is all juice and bad etiquette
Elbows on the table, lobster bibbing on the ready-set
He said, “But how alive?”
“I don't know homey, you decide.”
(“No, you decide.”)
