Asymmetry
Inspired by Aftergold by Big Wild

(Side? I am on nobody's side)
(Because nobody is on my side)
(Nobody cares for the woods anymore)

For all the gardeners hard workin the ground
(Muthafucka, this is for you)
and silverculturists yodelling look to the clouds
(Muthafucka, this is for you)
and all the lumberjacks askin if we're hearin your sound
(This is for you)
'cause it's an hour til one
when The Sun is loudest to announce
(This is for you)

Imagine there's a big tree with a whole lotta leaves
where fruit is grown a-plenty, it's an all you can eat
and the mommas all sing in the hopes that a seed
will replenish what The Father of Time really needs
and the children all swing from the vines in The Breeze
some born in canopies, others down at the feet
more than enough nutrient recycling
so tell me why the forest screams in agony
(Asymmetry)

Yessiree, it's time to make a scene
cause millions of buds are sap graspin The Dream
look to the limit of the understory
how we s'posed to rise when you're blocking our reach
you can't disclaim when we decay delay
the soil quality just leads to more upper banking
if we're the humus but you treat us like weeds
then you're the ones that should make like a tree and just leave

For all the pollen vectors haulin nectar to flowers
(muthafucka, this is for you)
and all the scavengers makin sure the waste will be scoured
(muthafucka, this is for you)
and all the hermits who determine biomass can rebound
(this is for you)
cause now it's way past one and The Moon has come to announce
(here comes the)

Flickery Flash, Slippery Rash
Hickory Dickory Dash, look at the facts
see how it stacks up
it covers the prickly ash
so they react with ignorant backlash
when we're removing the trash
causin a clash, but volcanic ash is
needed to heal the grass
the pruning of viral communing
destroys the blight attack
before the allelopathic cranial hack
becomes rice blast
but do they agree, statistically?
no, they love to get mad
their aim is a game where they proudly can say
"time to kiss my asshole"

tell them to reap more there's a price to produce
but grassroots backpedal til they're blue in the face
publicize hurt feelings 'stead of home growing pains
watch a fool hashtag til there's a check by the name
don't give a shit 'bout photosynthesis
til Winter's drawing near
just dew, don't ask
who's farming their hate tears
they're firmly planted in feeling at ease
cherry pick on your own size tree and just leave
(bitch please)

Don't you feel it in The Roots
something trembling beneath
can tell it's 'bout to shake loose
by the color of the leaves
Don't you feel it in The Roots
something trembling beneath
can tell it's 'bout to shake loose
by the color of the leaves
Don't you feel it in The Roots
something trembling beneath
can tell it's 'bout to shake loose
by the color of the leaves
(Hoo!)
Something's got to give
(Awoo)
Something's got to give
Some... thing's... got... to give...
RIGHT NOW!

(uh huh)
(YA'LL)
(uh huh)
(YA'LL)
(uh huh)
(YA'LL)
(uh huh)


And they wonder why a nigga suits up (UH HUH)
what the fuck ya'll
so let me show you why a nigga shoots up (UH HUH)
there's something wrong ya'll
And they wonder why a nigga suits up (UH HUH)
what the fuck ya'll
so lemme show you why a nigga shoots up (UH HUH)
there's something's wrong ya'll

Damn, he was such a wonderful kid
I dunno, one day she just blew off her lid
why the Youngies and The Oldies both pitchin a fit?
I guess, hmm, cause something's got to give
Damn, he was such a wonderful kid
I dunno, one day she just blew off her lid
why the Youngies and The Oldies both pitchin a fit?
I guess, hmm, cause something's got to give
