Teleprompters  The Uncluded

(Verse 1: Kimya Dawson)
[G]Ever since I was a kid
[D]On the backs of my two eyelids
[C]I hid two Teleprompters there
Transmitting words from who knows where
[G]A walkie-talkie on a mission
[D]Roger, roger will I listen
[C]Or will I just pass it along
In the form of a sing-a-long
[G]When muse annoys, devoid and null
[D]I feel a tingle in my skull
[C]Like ticker tape the words appear
There's a parade between my ears
[G]I preach self-love, I know it?s true
[D]It's easier to say than do
[C]I sing these messages to you
But now I need to hear them too
[G]I am beautiful [D]I am powerful [C]I am strong and I am lovable
[G]I am beautiful [D]I am powerful [C]I am strong and I am lovable
(Verse 2: Aesop Rock)
I was laying [G]bricks in a line
Yap full of dog toy
[D]Picturing a life beyond that of a protocol droid
[C]Bleep bloop boy ox boycott pea soup
First learn to eat pain at St. Peter's preschool-yum
[G]Now that's a painkiller I can speak through
[D]Airbrush letters on a pristine gene pool
[C]See, my mother said her father drew a ton
But all his cartoons had been swallowed by the Susquehanna flood in '72
[G]The year that he would subsequently pass
[D]I know he had a stroke but I assume that's only half
[C]But now I'm signing up for finger-drawing class in a tux like a gentleman
Marrying his ash to his dust
[G]Last on the kickball team draft pick-list
[D]First to the King Kullen practicing his kickflips
[C]I'd like to say it's 'cause I was a rebel
Truthfully it's easier to say "oh hell" instead of "hello"
[G]Hi, you need to get out more
I dunno, [D]I don't wanna be there when the geometry domino
[C]You need to get out more
Maybe, or maybe his pace is better suited for pacing
[G]You need to get out more
Never- [D]I am nailed to the floor-I am snail under pressure
[C]You need to get out more
Fine
(Verse 3: Kimya Dawson)
[G]Ever since I was a kid
[D]On the backs of my two eyelids
[C]I hid two Teleprompters there
Transmitting words from who knows where
[G]And this is why when I'm on stage
[D]My eyes are closed, I'm in a haze
[C]I looks like I'm made out of clay
I'm overwhelmed and under-glazed
[G]I'm making vases out of snakes
[D]I'm a kiln half-full of mistakes
[C]When kneading it, air?s overlooked
It's gonna crack when it gets cooked
[G]So self-forgiveness is the key
[D]To re-sculpting my sanity
[C]Mindfulness, humility
And taking time to care for me
[G]I preach self-love, I know it?s true
[D]It's easier to say than do
[C]I sing these messages to you
But now I need to hear them too
[G]I am beautiful [D]I am powerful [C]I am strong and I am loveable
[G]I am beautiful [D]I am powerful [C]I am strong and I am loveable
(Verse 4: Aesop Rock)
I was laying [G]bricks in a line
Yap full of copper-top
[D]Picturing a life beyond that of a dish-washer
Pot [C]buzz ping
Criss-crossed arms in a tub ring
Learned heartbreak on a Zelda-1 sub screen-numb
[G]Learned dark days by the scent of poached [D]dove meat
Some part ways and it's fugly
[C]Maybe the sum of the parts became lesser
That each individually making the same gesture
[G]And you don't wanna interrupt the overlapping network
[D]So you throw a bag together and elope with cabin pressure
[C]To disappear instead of interfere with any customs
Or differing definitions of liberty and justice
[G]Big dummy dig a hole in the dirt
[D]He put his head in the hole; he is alone in this world
And [C]dying slowly from the comfort of his home full of worms
Until you hear a little voice say "yo let's go get dessert"
Wait-what?
[G]You need to get out more
I dunno[D]-over 2 million dead bats in NY alone
[C]You need to get out more
Maybe, maybe not
Maybe I'll just stay back and survey the lot
[G]You need to get out more
Never- [D]I am nailed to the floor in a jail made of deserts
[C]You need to get out more
OK
