Exploratory and chill. The soundtrack to your hippie friend's next LSD or 'shroom trip. Vibey & nostalgic tones for solo or group enjoyment!


[Pre-Verse: Effswell]
In the middle of the night
I was walkin’ (ayyye!)
& I was walkin’... (ayyye!)

[Verse 1: Effswell]
If it’s my time to start, I’ma put this gently
Times get hard so I just simply
Listen to my heart & create new memories
Til everyone knows my fam like the Kennedys... Uh!
You’re kidding me, right?
You think a few groupies are getting ME hype?
Or maybe having money kills misery
Bright Ohio nights are giving me life
Fire engine red ambition: That’s Joseph!
Fire engine loud are the clouds that I’m blowed in
Fire engine lights flash fast, now I’m posing
And you’d think I fought a fire by how wet all of these hoses! (Hoes Is)
Notice noses turn up skyward
When I see her & I like her
Talk too much, I Wesley Pipe her
Shoot that fluid, she’s a geyser
Crush my buds, this girl’s a grinder
Supersize her, I’m McDonald’s
Blow her status, I’m MacGyver
If she’s average, I’m MacGruber
Mullet fresh, I will seduce her
Five dollar foot-long & I’m the ruler, you loser


[Sung: Effswell]
We’re half the world away
Yay, yeah
Instead of cryin’ & stressin’
Do a line & learn your lesson, yeah

[Spoken: Effswell]
Just make sure it’s not Flintstone’s vitamins, Man!
That’s what I do...
(Ayyye... ayyye!)

[Verse 2:]
How the hell have you heard Effswell & you’ve never seen a G?
Talkin’ bout buzz & you’ve never been a bee
Watch your mouth, Cuzz, now you’re stepping on my feet
I can open doors of yours without a key
Yee, and I’m just ONE muhfugga
Jaded out, chill, lol hung muhfugga
I know I sound obscure, oh sure
Smart always sounds crazy to a DUMB muhfugga!
I never had nare nada til I took it
Signed for & handshook it
Blessed with the vision of a writer of nonfiction
Author eyes & then book it
Bang out like 4 prudes at a frat house
“But dude, come ON, she’s passed out!”
I remain the good guy, meanwhile
My ouches & me ow’s come out from rounds of cat & mouse
She said, he said, ad infinitum
Talking heads are walking dead & they’re into bitin’
To hell’s where I invite ‘em
Every pen pal I had was a drag because I didn’t write ‘em
And all I want at the end of the day
Was a little bite to eat & a decent place to stay
Some anchors on my feet, so I don’t roll away
Forever’s not that long, it’s just tomorrow & today
Okay.... AYE!
