lyrics

Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder
Carry my casket like a boombox on your –What?!
Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder
Carry my casket, then you drop it like it’s hot.

From a stone age to a rock epoch
plug into the earth, you get culture shocked
this lyrical satirical alchemical comedy
historical hysterical botanical harmony ((harmony))

You seek a plant to get you stoned
Bear with it, child, you’re not alone

Turn up the base
Turn up the soil
raise the dead, heavy as a boulder
and Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder

Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder
Carry my casket like a boombox on your –What?!
Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder
Carry my casket, then you drop it like it’s hot.

I took a hit of GPS
got lost within the endlessness
gave up the compass in my chest
and oriented to the west

Taoists are always in The Way
they have no need to navigate
and gypsies don’t need GPS
they’re at home inside the emptiness.

He’s a bardo bard in a vardo cart
muthafockas like that got a lotto heart
every beat is a gamble and a fateful art.
(Rien va plus)
place your bets
(inside of you)
no regrets
life has a lotta little rules, just like roulettes

Could it be I finally went viral?
Just swirling round in spirals…

Bloom now, flower child,
and do as thou wilt
shake off the shame
and strange the guilt.
Transcendent of sameness
the shamans are shameless
shame on you/shaman you
all else remains nameless.

And I could get into diatribe
about a tribal diet
but you can’t deny it
you just gotta try it
if you don’t do it that way
you might end up dying…
but we all end up dying, don’t we?
we all end up dying… so…

Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder
Carry my casket like a boombox on your –What?!
Carry my casket like a boombox on your shoulder
Carry my casket, then you drop it like it’s hot.

And due to some ill-fated rumor
his spiritual growth had been mistaken for a tumor
he heard laughter from hereafter
with his sixth sense of humor.
And in a vision he was shown
this growth to be the stone
he’d sought so hard to find
for(e)telling the end of time.
