Verse 1
perfect song
for your jogging mix
but if you're in the car
road raging maybe hit skip
woo woop
ohhhh iiissshhhh.....
got stopped by a cop
who clocked you twenty six
over the limit
and now you're about to go and get it
cause the officer had written
you out a big ticket
but you try to explain
plead the reason why you did it
“well officer...
I was going kind of quick
cause this track is a hit
and I didn't press skip
with Dejection's rhythm
and the way Ben spits
put the peddle to the metal
with a white knuckle grip
I was stuck in the zone
and I didn't notice
didn't think it was that fast
in my Ford Focus”
she said “Please
I'll throw the book you'll get hit
Here's your ticket with the court date
you now owe this
when you play their track
man you take that risk”

Verse 2
begin with a grin
when I start over again
wind on my skin
I'ma go in for the win
lyrically I'll put it
down and go all in
empirically I own the
sound and take it for a spin
so tell your mother tell your friend
and go and tell your next of kin
tell another yet again
how I go and flap my chin
when I write with the pen
I'm hoping that your listening
this flow is it
yo go and get your order in
this cat outta Madison
is a master with his gift
so sick with the rapping
immaculate when he spits
except when he stutters
or maybe even forgets

I think
I lost my step
did I forget
I'm really stressed
I think
that I will jet...
I need
to go reflect
and see
golden sunset
and leave
my old regrets
and hold reset

Verse 3
I'm not like Scrooge
I'm a nice type dude
cool breezer
to learn something new
I'm eager
wanna chat about you
we'll chill leisure
Reminiscent mood
popsicle freezer
hip hip
I'll bump Wheezer
remember watching Doug
with his friend Skeeter?
This nostalgic mood
is a crowd pleaser
but this is for my people
pushing beaters
driving a car
with a broken heater
flipped off by the guy
in his brand new Beamer
hold up
was that Derek Jeter?
kind of hard to tell
through the plastic sheet there
window busted out
duct taped for repair
Ben Z and Dejection
get it and we care
cause we know how hard
it is-to be there

Today is a good day to
chilling by the water for the
letting go of all of our
this time is prime
to rewind and reset
