Scaled And Icy Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Good Day

I can feel my saturation leaving me slowly
Broke the news on Mom's vacation
Oh, but you know me

Low-key I'm alright
Would you say you depend on the weather?
My sunshine is a buzz and a light, I'll be singing out
I know it's hard to believe me, it's a good day

Lost my job, my wife and child
Homie just sued me
Shoot my life in shoot 'em up style
Her favorite movies

Low-key I'm alright
Would you say you depend on the weather?
My sunshine is a buzz and a light, I'll be singing out
I know it's hard to believe me, it's a good day

Today's a good day
Never know, never know
When the next one will show, it'll show
So I'ma sing my soul, I'ma sing my soul

Today's a good day
Never know, Never know
When the next one will show, it'll show
So I'ma sing my soul, I'ma sing my soul, yeah
(So I'ma sing my soul, I'ma sing my soul)

I'm alright
Would you say you depend on the weather?
My sunshine is a buzz and a light, I'll be singing out
I know it's hard to believe me, it's a good day

I'm alright
I'm alright
I think that I'm alright
It's a good day

Choker

Mhm, mhm, mhm
Mhm, mhm, mhm

I don't bother anyone
Nervous when I stand
Choking on the circumstance
Only smoking second hand (mhm)
Cut us open an' spread us out (mhm)
Dry us in the sand (mhm)
Lay the fibers side by side (mhm)
And you'll begin to understand (mhm)

I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me, coming for me

Mhm (I know it's over), mhm, mhm

I don't bother anyone
Never make demands
Choking on the circumstance
Self-sabotage is a sweet romance (mhm)
Seems like all I'm worth is what (mhm)
I'm able to withstand (mhm)
Sooner I can realize (mhm) that
Pain is just a middleman

I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me

I see no volunteers
To co-sign on my fears
I'll sign on the line

Alone, you're gonna change by circumstance
I know I need to move right now 'cause

I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me (only smoking second hand)
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me, coming for me

Like a little splinter buried in your skin
Someone else can carve it out, but when you've got the pin
It hurts a little less and you can even push it further in
When your body's screaming out, trust your mind's listening
Like a silhouette that you can barely see
As a shadow cast upon the ground, where you'll eventually
Lay forever, but the day goes on, the sun moves behind you
You get taller, bolder, stronger and the rearview only blinds you

Mhm, mhm, mhm

Shy Away

When I get home
You better not be there, we're placing bets you won't
Shed your modesty
And the only thing to leave behind is your own skin
On the floor

Don't you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an "I love you" (ooh, ooh)
That isn't words (ooh, ooh)
Like a song he wrote, that's never heard
Don't you (sh)

When you get home
You barely recognize the pictures they put in a frame
'Cause you shed your modesty
Don't circle the track
Take what you have
And leave your skin on the floor

Don't you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an "I love you" (ooh, ooh)
That isn't words (ooh, ooh)
Like a song he wrote, that's never heard

When I get home
Boy, you better not be there, you're long gone
Shed your modesty
Don't circle the track
Just break the cycle in half
And leave your skin on the floor

Don't you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an "I love you" (ooh, ooh)
That isn't words (ooh, ooh)
Like a song he wrote
That's never heard
That's never heard

And I love you
There isn't words
Like a song he wrote
That's never heard
Don't you shy away

The Outside

I'm already bored
I'm pretty sure I've seen this one before
I've got a long drive, I'll tape my eyes
So I don't fall asleep again
Singing out

Up and down
They're nodding
Heads are moving up and down
You got it
Everybody stand in line
One by one, take a hit, join the club
Kids will try to take my vibes
Or am I on the outside?

(Am I on the outside?)

I've got a long drive, I'll tape my eyes
So I don't fall asleep again
Singing out

Up and down
They're nodding
Heads are moving up and down
You got it
Everybody stand in line
One by one, take a hit, join the club
Kids will try to take my vibes
Or am I on the outside?

(Am I on the outside?)
(Am I on the outside?)

I am a Megalodon, oceans feeling like a pond
Swimming like a beast, underneath they be clinging on
Meteoric rise, in prehistoric times
Now that meteor is coming, coming
I am Megatron, cogs I'm stepping on
Then the little cogs got together, start a renaissance
Switched it up on me, fuel efficiency
On fumes I am running, running, running

Up and down
They're nodding
Heads are moving up and down
You got it
Everybody
Up and down
They're nodding
Heads are moving up and down
You got it
Everybody stand in line
One by one, take a hit, join the club
Kids will try to take my vibes
Or am I on the outside?

(In the summer heat, in the summer heat)
(Drum in the street, drum in the street)

I'm on the outside in the summer heat
You can pay the cover charge, I'm in the street
Little do they know that they can't touch me
I'm vibin', vibin'

I'm on the outside in the summer heat
You can pay the cover charge, I'm in the street
Little do they know that they can't touch me
I'm vibin', vibin', yeah

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

Saturday

Slow down on Monday
Not a sound (whoa) on Wednesday, yeah
Might get loud (ayy) on Friday
But on Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
We paint the town

Lose my sense a time or two
Weeks feel like days
Medicate in the afternoon
And I just want to know
Have you lost your footing, too?
I just pray that I'm not losing you

Catch me floatin' circles in my fishbowl
Keep things fresh
She said that I should change my clothes
I exaggerate the life we used to know, oh, oh

Slow down on Monday
Not a sound (whoa) on Wednesday, yeah
Might get loud (ayy) on Friday
But on Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
We paint the town

Ooh, you're good
These are my dancin' shoes
We paint the town
Ooh, you're good
Thought I would dance with you
Might get loud (ayy) on Friday
But on Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
We paint the town

(Feelin' great)
Life moves slow on the ocean floor (feelin' great)
I can't feel the waves anymore
Did the tide forget to move?
I just pray that I'm not losin' you

Catch me floatin' circles in my fishbowl
Keep things fresh
She said that I should change my clothes
I exaggerate the life we used to know, oh, yeah

Working on music?
Yeah
I, I'll just go to bed, I'm tired
I wanna watch Friends with you
Oh, if you feel like you have time to do a song or you're inspired
You should just go for it

(Oh) slow down on Monday (yeah, yeah)
Not a sound on Wednesday
Might get loud on Friday
But on Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
We paint the town

(Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da)
(We paint, paint, oh)
Might get loud on Friday
But on Saturday, Saturday, Saturday

Never Take It

(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh)

Now that they know information
Is just a currency and nothing more
Keep the truth in quotations
'Cause they keep lying through their fake teeth

Oh-oh-oh
They're trying hard to weaponize
You and I
We'll never take it
Oh-oh-oh
They're asking for a second try
You and I
Will never take it

(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh)

Why cure disease of confusion
When you're the treatment facility?
How can we seek restitution
When they keep lying through their fake teeth?

Oh-oh-oh
They're trying hard to weaponize
You and I
We'll never take it
Oh-oh-oh
They're asking for a second try
You and I
We'll never take it, yeah

(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh) ah-ah-ah
(Ooh, ooh)
Will never take it
Oh-oh-oh
They're asking for a second try
You and I
We never take it from 'em

The summer I watched the tube
I saw enough
Taught myself to play guitar
Tearing it up
And my advice on those two things
That I picked up
You better educate yourself
But never too much

The summer I watched the tube
I saw enough (I saw enough)
I taught myself to play guitar
Tearing it up (tearing it up)
And my advice on those two things
That I picked up (I picked up)
You better educate yourself
But never too much

(Weaponize, you and I)
Will never take it
Oh-oh-oh
They profit from a great divide
You and I
Will never take it

(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh-oh-oh
They're trying hard to weaponize
You and I

Mulberry Street

(One, two, three, yeah)
Ah-ah

Keep your bliss
There's nothing wrong with this
(Ah-ah-ah-ah yeah, ooh)
Keep your bliss
There's nothing wrong with this

Keep your sunny days, leave us in the rain
Tie strings to our hands and feet, to rain on your parade
You can have the weekends, we will live between them
Keep your pills, save your breath, and don't ever forget

Get out of our way, we're moving sideways
Welcome to Mulberry Street, yeah
So move out of our way, we're pushing sideways
Keep sidewalk under your feet

Ain't no sunny skies, 'til you finally realize
That everybody relies on synthetic highs
They find someone to prescribe
Keep your bliss
There's nothing wrong with this
We just want to feel it all
Keep your pills, save your breath, and don't ever forget

Get out of our way, we're moving sideways
Welcome to Mulberry Street, yeah
So move out of our way, we're pushing sideways
Keep sidewalk under your feet

When times aren't the best, and I'm on the edge
I'll listen for a song in the distance
Mulberry Street, so good to see you
Mulberry Street, so good to see you
Mulberry Street, so good to see you
Mulberry Street
And don't ever forget

Get out of our way, we're moving sideways
Welcome to Mulberry Street, yeah
So move out of our way, we're pushing sideways
Keep sidewalk under your feet
Get our of our way, we're moving sideways
Welcome to Mulberry Street (so good to see you), yeah
So move out of our way (so good, so good)
We're pushing sideways (so good, so good)
Keep sidewalk under your feet (so good to see you)

Keep your bliss
There's nothing wrong with this

Formidable

You are formidable to me
'Cause you seem to know it, where you wanna go
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll follow you
But you should know
I might be cynical towards you
But I just can't believe that I'm for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can die with you
Just let me know
Yeah

And I know that we just met
But could you take me everywhere you've ever been?
I wanna see it all, no surprises
Yeah

You are formidable to me
'Cause you seem to know it, where you wanna go
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll follow you
But you should know
I might be clinical, don't you tell
I won't break your heart, if you can break my spell
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can die with you
Just let me know

Fast-forward thirteen years now
Don't know what it was but somehow we played it out in reverse
I'm afraid of you now more than I was at first
And I know you just left
But can I take you everywhere we've ever been?
I wanna see it all, no surprises
Yeah

You are formidable to me
'Cause you seem to know it, where you wanna go
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll follow you
But you should know
I might be cynical towards you
I'm just worried my loyalty will bore you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can die with you
Just let me know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can die with you
Just let me know

Bounce Man

You should bounce, bounce, bounce man
Come to the house, man, I'll let my old lady know
You'll be in and out, out, out man
Float you a couple bands, then you head to Mexico, ha
(I'll let my old lady know) what you do, man?
My friend (then you head to Mexico)
Yeah, yeah

I-I-I don't know if you've got your phone
'Cause this went straight to voicemail
And my wife saw your face on the nightly news
Oh boy, what'd you do? Don't matter now
If you need a piece, I'll break it down (break it down)

You should bounce, bounce, bounce man
Come to the house, man, I'll let my old lady know
You'll be in and out, out, out man
Float you a couple bands, then you head to Mexico
Yeah I told you all along, running away don't make you wrong
Before you bounce, bounce, bounce man
Come to the house, man, we'll sing one more song
So long
(I'll let my old lady know)
(So long)
(Then you head to Mexico)

If they come a-knocking (pop, pop, pop)
Ain't no stopping me, for you
Just let me know you're good on your amenities
Got soldiers on my pedigree
If you don't reply (if you don't)
I'll know you must have crossed state lines
She's been crying, but I'll tell her you're fine
Don't matter now
If you need a piece, I'll break it down (break it down)

You should bounce, bounce, bounce man
Come to the house, man, I'll let my old lady know
You'll be in and out, out, out man
Float you a couple bands, then you head to Mexico
Yeah I told you all along, running away don't make you wrong
Before you bounce, bounce, bounce man
Come to the house, man, we'll sing one more song
So long
(Da-da-da, ba-da-da-da)
(I'll let my old lady know)
(So long)
(Da-da-da, ba-da-da-da)
(Then you head to Mexico)

Yeah I told you all along, running away don't make you wrong
Before you bounce, bounce, bounce man
Come to the house, man, we'll sing one more song
So long

No Chances

We come for you, no chances
We come for you, no chances

In my house shoes in a foot race
In this house we got feng shui
Get the door to blow you away
Flamethrower, you a switchblade
Feet planted on grip tape
With my shoulders squared, and my back straight
Got a good base and a loose tongue
Notorious in the octagon

Now mm bada-dum bada-dum dum
We got people on the way
We want you home in one piece now
(Run away, run away)
Mm bada-dum bada-dum dum
We get bodies every day
We want you home in one piece now

We come for you, no chances
We come for you, no chances

How'd you get the location?
Put together pieces?
They say they sell the information
In those terms of agreement
We spent some weekends on the grind
Surveillances outside, we see when you arrive
Ride or die my son
Spent some weekends on the grind
Surveillances outside, we see when you arrive
Ride or die my son

Mm bada-dum bada-dum dum
We got people on the way
We want you home in one piece now
(Run away, run away)
Mm bada-dum bada-dum dum
We get bodies every day
We want you home in one piece now
(Run away, run away)
Mm bada-dum bada-dum dum

Mm bada-dum bada-dum dum
We got people on the way
We want you home in one piece now
(Run away, run away)
Mm bada-dum bada-dum dum
We get bodies every day
We want you home in one piece now
(We come for you, no chances)
(We come for you, no chances)
(We-we-we)

Redecorate

(There was a wonderful structure to the city)
(And it put my cares to rest)

Taking inventory of his life
Seeing snapshots chronologically inline
Something told him he should look around and tidy up
He collected many things but never quite enough
Tried looking at it from a new perspective
Flat on his back but he still heard the directive
Orders from that corner where that shadow always lived
Never asked permission, he just hopes that they'd forgive

I don't want to go on like this
At least let me clean my room
I don't want to leave like this
'Cause the last thing I want to do is
Make my people make decisions
Wondering what to do, oh
Should they keep it on display
Or redecorate?

Blankets over mirrors, she tends to like it
She's not afraid of her reflection
But of what she might see behind it
She had plans to change her name (yeah)
Just not the traditional way (yeah)
Haunted by a couple big mistakes
She covers all the dents with the way she decorates
Then one night she got cold with no blankets on her bed
So she ripped them off the mirror, stepped back and she said

I don't want to go on like this
At least let me clean my room
I don't want to leave like this
'Cause the last thing I want to do is
Make my people make decisions
Wondering what to do, oh
Should they keep it on display
Or redecorate?

With the bells and the whistles scaled back
Like an isolated track
And he feels trapped when he's not inebriated
Fair to say he's fairly sedated most days of the week
He might have made it if he'd lived on a different street
I repeat, scaled back and isolated
He says he likes an open schedule but he mostly hates it
If you're running to his room, take a breath before you break-in
Put your ear up to the door, tell me can you hear him saying?

I don't want to go like this
At least let me clean my room
I don't want to leave like this
'Cause the last thing I want to do is
Make my people make decisions
Wondering what to do, oh
Should they keep it on display
Or redecorate?
I don't want to go like this (go like this)
At least let me clean my room (clean my room)
I don't want to leave like this (leave like this)
'Cause the last thing I want to do is (to do is)
Make my people make decisions
Wondering what to do, oh
Should they keep it on display
Or redecorate?
Or redecorate?
Or redecorate?
