Aesop Rock – Holy Waterfall Lyrics

Holy Waterfall Lyrics – Aesop Rock

I’m a glutton where the food still shimmy and shake
Not a fingerprint to pin him to a physical plane
Probably show up as an isolated pocket of cold
Got a way of making tilapia hop in the boat
I was fending off a lizard on the dock of a lake
Could see him reap, smoking something I forgot how to say
Maybe 20 paranoia, 80 plotted against
Palm reader calling in his archaeologist friend
It’s been a long and bitter breakup with the science of sleep
I’m through the lobby on my stomach with a knife in my teeth
Brave winter, rain slicker over mutinous code
Finally free of all you fuckers I should pull through a phone
I could transform later when the gradient fade
There’s a paranormal energy awake and engaged
There’s a Kawasaki out behind a barn in Gore
Money said if you can start it, it’s yours

Forecast warm, leftover chicken for the dogs
I’ve been jumping over fences in 100 different forms
Next week warm
Message at the tone, I’ve been sketching on the roof or getting sketchy in the strobe
Warm, six legs circling a drain
I’ve been swatting him for 20, it’s a 30, it’s a pain
Next week warm
Rattle in the cough, I’ve been running ragged tryna shake an apparition off

In the pitch dark searching for the source of the hex
Got a loyal tanical in every corner of heck
Hooded figure from the wreckage of an alien ship
Nescafe washing down a snake on a stick
Spotted floating down a river tryna curse a Comair
With no shirt, 7 days worth of dirt in his hair
When the motor finally folded to the accident prone
Had to flag another captain, phantasm in tow
I’ve been ignoring any semblance of relatable Earth
I got a homie from the region who could name every bird
And tell you what it is to wake up with a tank in the yard
Type of shit to make you question what your days even are
There’s a holy waterfall where you could rinse and repeat
Find religion while the minnows eat the skin off your feet
If you wake me on a January morning at four
Don’t get excited when I bark at the door

Forecast warm, leftover chicken for the dogs
I’ve been jumping over fences in 100 different forms
Next week warm
Message at the tone, I’ve been sketching on the roof or getting sketchy in the strobe
Warm, six legs circling the drain
I’ve been swatting him for 20, it’s a 30, it’s a pain
Next week warm
Rattle in the cough, I’ve been running ragged tryna shake an apparition off

Y’all keep not being shit
All I do is chomp at the bit
Caltrop in his foot still hop to the bridge
All rah-rah, pox on your kin
Pass through the prism, maintain position
Knock over everything, walk away whistling
False name, I work at a fake business
Daybreak ’til I break up in the trained pigeons
And I came from the cave paint, chase pain killers
Tale by an arcane shape in the scribble
I stake out snakes that forsake the sigil
Wait him out, show him how to wavelength cripple
I’m afraid they don’t wanna see a wound-up truant
Get to walk down a street to the sound of doves cooing
Dove’s like I love what you doing
Even when it’s drugs at the ruin
Money, I was plucked from the fire
Jump back in the fire
It’s fucked, you’re free to hire another pathfinder
Skull and bones humming the tones that don’t bode well
Only if you may have built an altar at the hotel, oh

Well
