[Crescent Moon] don't time fly like an aeroplane run like the dollars do sink like bullshit that talk but never follow through knock a few rhyme books out the attic cause i'm sick of that radio static crescent moon that's the name i was given it came in a vision now it's stained in my pigment blessed with a baby things changed in an instant but it shouldn't take that to see the game that you're living another day another record to play and i done lifted every crate trying to measure the weight if it's free they'll say it's better to pay where will the sheep lead the shepherd today met many people and seen many places moved a few crowds that didn't even speak the language travelled on a dime and some old suit cases still saw the sun on my ancestors faces [Chorus] care at all care to speak make the call every week grab a ball make a beat write it down it's therapy [Brandon Allday] say my name on a record click a pixel with a line form an image with a vector culture ever evolve and redefine would not take a word for what i read between the lines music is a monster like kody or codeine widely used and acceptable plus you highly susceptible song du jour i'm an entrepreneur wrote a lake city song many here many gone interfere thankful we intersected inner thought i'll stop burning flags when the cops quit harassing me don't know when that'll be i give it to 'em cause i knew 'em they support as well i return home like dorothy gale tell him when you see him that i love him cause he breathing plus hug him cause he need it [Chorus] care at all care to speak make the call every week grab a ball make a beat write it down it's therapy care at all care to speak make the call every week willingness to listen it's therapy
