lyrics

ALASKA:
We the fox in the hen house
F these plastic Ken dolls
When we writing back and forth it makes it sort of like we're pen pals
Yo I'm the man silence lambs like Clarice right
Catch me in the Regal Beagle every night with Larry right?

CRYPTIC ONE:
We carry mics
Like swords of Highlanders
And keep it tight
Like pants on hoards of fine dancers
I try to keep it light
Because of my candor
I don't have all the questions
But I'm sure of all my answers

ALASKA:
So open up the dance floors Napoleon Dynamite
A sniper for a minor slight don't end up in my line of sight
Cause I can split your head like infections in your sinus might
And blanket every rhythm with some wisdom like I'm Linus right?

CRYPTIC ONE:
And I'll be Schroeder, face burried in the keys
And I'm playing tunes for Peanuts but I'm merry as can be
Out smarting Ali Babi and his little 40 thieves
Take the treasure then dip, open sesame…. seeds

SELF SAYS:
Back back and forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth
It goes
Back back and forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth
x2


CRYPTIC ONE:
We're back at it
Like habits of crack addicts
Some wizards with black magic
That listen to black sabbatch
Yeah I sold Trix for mad carrots to bad rabits
IT rap classic to bad static

ALASKA:
…and take it back like siatica
Back to plastic iMacs now trapped in my attic
I love my bad attitude go head read my t-shirt
Rappers suck so much I bet their f-king knees hurt

CRYPTIC ONE:
So wipe your mouth before you speak
Stay behind them red ropes on this tour of the elite
Eff the heard… we still at war with the sheep
Back and forth to the beat til the score is complete

ALASKA:
And our origin story's sort of Georgia O'Keeffe
Or maybe Geordi La Forge out here exploring these beats
Yo straw men get discarded some discord wouldn't kill you
And sun kil moon mixed with mildew is my milieu

SELF SAYS:
Back back and forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth
It goes
Back back and forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth
x2

ALASKA:
A shout to my mensch booda French out in Lipswich
Excite you with these raps like my dog with the lipstick
Hahah. Yo maybe it's maybeleen
That's a table setting flipping scripts at the table read
Tower of Babel no listening and all talk
Miscommunication euthanasia with the back and forth
Back back forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth

CRYPTIC ONE:
Keep your eye on the ball as the pendelum swings
From the evil that spaghetti monster yellow king brings
The other shoulder holds a harp and an angel wing swings
Gotta keep some balance thats what Yin and Yang brings
Tower of Babel no listening and all talk
Miscommunication euthanasia with the back and forth
Back back forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth

SELF SAYS:
Back back and forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth
It goes
Back back and forth and forth
Back to back forth and forth
x3
